I guess it's a good thing I'm not sailing around the world. Actually, that makes more sense having green on starboard entering, since anyone new entering the harbour will see the conventional green/right, red/left arrangement of nav lights.

I can't believe something as fundamental as it isn't standardized worldwide.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
