elsen029: Suits them well!

but... ' Both were sentenced to 7 days in jail, fined $2,000 and ordered to perform community service for Yellowstone Forever.'

Forever? Life long community service?

I'm sure I don't have all the facts, just from the above synopsis - but the fine does seem trivial compared to the offense. It should have been be high enough to hurt and make others think twice before pulling a stunt like that.

guyfawkes: Mostly mumbo jumbo and philosophical twaddle. Being English, I can understand, just, how the verb "to maximise" can be turned into the noun "maximiser" but "satisficer" from "to satisfy" beggars belief.

Outwith of this article and being asked what "satisficer" meant, who would know?

These examples and points are discussed in the book "Thinking, Fast And Slow" by Daniel Kahnemann - a Nobel Prize winner.
There is nothing philosophical about it.
