Think Safety Regulations Aren't Needed?

Just take a look at Hogwarts! Movie seven, part two opens with Snape standing at a doorway that opens to a hundred-foot drop. At a school! Man, that thing needs a railing. The Ministry of Magic is obviously under-regulating.

  1. Wizardry is free-market. Other schools exist that have a greater emphasis on safety but they never gained market share and hence never went on to develop a movie-franchise business in the way Hogwarts did.

  2. I felt the same way about the Romulan ship in the Star Trek reboot. Clearly the Federation needed to intervene in Romulan affairs to bring better governance to the Romulan people!

  3. Any time I hear railings or anything of the like it reminds me of that episode of 'Mystery Science Theatre 3000' where Tom Servo is the safety officer of the ship who has acquired the book 'Banisters, Balustrades and Railings' and proceeds to put a railing, banister or balustrade anywhere and everywhere. I forget what movie was on that episode.

    1. Yes! I gave a half-assed attempt at finding that clip, too.
