Ok, puddin' stirrin' time. Laws are not enacted to prevent anyting, they are enacted to demonstrate, and provide punishment for, those things which are fundamentally, wrong.
To think that legislation will prevent anyone from doing anything is folly, and fear of consequences will prevent only a small majority.
Hundreds of years from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove... But the world may be different because I did something so bafflingly crazy that my ruins become a tourist attraction.
