Just had a thought for the Youth Olympic Games here. Imagine this at the opening ceremony, after all the fanfare the grand final unviels with a RSAF fly by.

A huge podium covered in locals orchids, slowly splits opens accompanied by smoke and dramatic music to reveal a rising flag draped pole, at the base Fricker is strapped. Spot light on his bottom and the Merlin appears and gives him six of the best with a large satay covered stick. Another world first... The crowd goes wild and everyone saves face.

Or is this some colonial public school fetish throw back? BTW what do you call the "executioner" in this case a merlin, that does the whipping a whippor who whips the whippee?

Hey those two will make a killing if they start a sugar cane juice stall with the Benihana twist.

Actually, I don't really understand why they are tempted to show their artistic talent to the whole world too..

What, you never had the oh so naturally human longing to feel appreciated or recognized? Also, programmers have the same tendencies too--some do it for lulz, bragging rights or the right to earn more money/to be promoted. It's just that this idjit decided to break a few laws AND get caught in a country known for its harsh laws to express himself.

Disclaimer: I have artistic tendencies and program for a living.

On the contrary, they share the same urge to be recognised. That is why antivirus/antispyware programs share the same woe with the police.
