Oh that is so kewl and cute.  But I'm wondering if it's a publisty stunt for the shop to make more money or bring in more customers.

That's too funny.  What I want to know if the place was supposed to be locked then how come the bear was able to open the door like that.

The news report I saw said the lock on the door was broken and the shop owner didn't know it until they checked the video to find out if someone had broken in. I'm surprised the bear didn't make more of a mess.

I hope they can get the people that laced it with methanol so no more people die or suffer.

Trouble is there has been a lot of hysteria since it started, but it took *ages* for the media or authorities to do something constructive - like telling people how they can tell they've been poisoned and what to do if it happens (i.e. - get hold of some *ethanol* and consume it ASAP)... Or how to prevent it (don't stick to one sort of drink throughout the whole evening - alternate them, take a shot of this, then a shot of that; though of course, not drinking liquor is the most obvious and safest option).
19 people died in the whole country, not much was happening. 1 died in the capital - BANG, prohibition.
It's kinda funny, really.
In any case, I don't think the ban is gonna help much. After all, illegal booze business is the source of the problem, but it's very often during prohibition when this very business THRIVES the most.
Plus, us Slavonic folks tend to get very grumpy if someone forbids us to drink what we want...:-) Good thing we are mostly a beer/wine nation, otherwise there might be the third Prague defenestration on the way. :cool:

Sounds a lot like the trouble they had here in the US during prohibition.

Prohibition stemmed from the noblest and most progressive of goals -- to ease the broad suffering caused by alchohol abuse and addiction -- but the cure carried with it a far worse side-effect than the disease: the widespread flourishing of gangsters and corruption among public officials.

No government should ever undertake to outlaw something which is a basic human instinct. The best that can be done is to promote understanding and provide palliative measures to address the effects of the problem.

Same thing for most drugs too. Heroin and cocaine should be legal and regulated to the maximum extent possible without neccessarily creating a black market.

The ramifications of drug law in the U.S. transcend national boundaries as our appetites for these illicit substances cause governments to fall and a climate of widespread murder and corruption elsewhere.

my 2¢, now off the soapbox!

I'd label the goal as well-intentioned perhaps - but neither noble nor progressive. Just very, very protestant. Blargh.

Hopefully, it's going to be only a very temporary measure over here. If anyone tried to propose permanent prohibition with some "progressive" ideas in mind, he'd be laughed at - and most probably very disliked...:-)
