Warning: this story contains frightening and menacing situations and brutal, but deserved, corporal punishment, however, NO sex. Those who insist on reading about a good shag should go elsewhere.

[Authors note: While I have tried not to directly borrow (steal?), I must acknowledge a tremendous thematic debt to the conclusion of @King Diocletian ‘s fine work, State of Emergency - The Student. Also, though I’ve never been there, I understand that The Republic of Singapore is a marvelous country and a fine place to visit. Unless, of course, you are a silly, spoiled, petulant child, habituated to lying.]

Crime and Punishment in Modern Singapore

Barb Needs Another Rest, Minneapolis, Winter 2019

Barbara Moore was worn down. All Fall, work and daunting family responsibilities had been constant and unrelenting. Then the winter of 2018-19 hit. The harshest in Minneapolis in 25 years. It seemed that every moment Barb wasn’t working or traveling, she was shoveling snow! Even though she was a native of the North, this weather tested her endurance. By January, she was feeling the most intense cabin fever of her life.
While she was surfing YouTube, she saw an ad for Singapore. Looking it up she liked what she saw: almost on the Equator with year-round warmth, exceptionally clean, and one of the lowest crime rates in the world.
On a whim, she had hopped on the internet travel sites and found a nicely priced package for a 5-day getaway to Singapore in late February when the average temperature was 88°/76°. She almost maxed out her credit cards, but she told herself, she needed another rest.
Very early the morning of February, 23rd, Barb found herself driving through a near blinding snowstorm to the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. Narrowly avoiding several close calls with other cars, she arrived on time. She checked her three suitcases, obtained her boarding pass and by 7 AM was seated on United Airlines Flight 5620/29 to Singapore with one stop at SFO. She got out her “plane, light reading, book” The History of the Medieval World, by Susan Wise Bauer. In a little less than 24 hours, she would be in Singapore.

And it never occurred to me to check the fine print, or the laws a tourist could run afoul of in Singapore. :facepalm:

someone who worked there told me, it's so hot and humid,
hammering in a nail is enough to lay you out for the rest of the day!
(So being crucified might be a slow business)
Most places are hot and humid compared to Hybernia.

And don't worry about her being crucified. The Singapore Judicial Punishment Reform Act of 2001, outlawed all forms of capital punishment except by long drop hanging in Changi Prison at dawn on Fridays.
