Bungy King AJ Hackett is back in New Zealand and doing interviews. In a brief excerpt from one this morning, he talked about making his start in business by hanging off the bridges of New Zealand:
AJ: This was all before the Resource Management Act of course.
INTERVIEWER: Would you get off the ground now?
AJ: It would be very, very difficult.
And that's without even mentioning what OSH and our safety-obsessed 'cotton-wool culture' would have done to the fledgling business that has since conquered the world.

There has to be a lesson there, doesn't there?
