Being an avid admirer of both Schopenhauer and Nietzsche, I consider myself a follower of the school of suspicion, but if one were to follow Freud in his purest form, the sexual foundation which preceded the 1960 dissolution of morals, might turn others to see in it the biblical sense of Sodom and Gomorrah.

we really go in revolving circles of morality, depending on the century we revisit.

There is a push to implement Sharia Law in Bali, that would see the death penalty for any two people having sex without being married.

I think they're just doing this because they want to get rid of "Schoolies week".

It's like the Australian version of "Spring Break".

I don't blame them.  Australian tourists in Bali must be a nightmare.

Area preserving projections of the surface of a sphere onto a plane will also tend to be population preserving projections. 

 It is not surprising at the Peters projection better represents population density.

Incidentally, the mathematics of the Peter's projection is the same mathematics that makes it possible to ride a tricycle with square wheels on a bumpy road. 

Square-Wheeled Tricycle

The Texas A&M Physics Department's square -wheeled trike, built by the machine shop. The trike rides on a road of repeated pieces of an inverted catenary.
