"...aesthetic perception of a mollusc" Quite what is Anonymous 12:13 suggesting?
I have long considered molluscs to have highly developed aesthetic sensibilities.
Many molluscs build shell structures that are are of great beauty and refinement that provide great living spaces for themselves and subsequent occupiers - ask any hermit crab and many of our boldest human architects.
May I prescribe regular ingestion of 'How to be a Happy Architect' by Irena Bauman. It may help the unfortunate inflamation of that ego, better temper, a shorter X-List and even greater well being for us all.
Just say "No".
You must be one of those architect types to see two grand as hardly a big for pleading to a first offence. Out here, in the boondocks to you, that would hurt.

Since you ask, the Namibian 'Government Notice No. 156 of 1997: Regulations relating to the
health and safety of employees at work' include
Chap. 1: Rights and duties of employers
Chap. 2: Administration
Chap. 3: Welfare and facilities at work-places
Chap. 4: Safety of machinery
Chap. 5: Hazardous substances
Chap. 6: Physical hazards and general provisions
Chap. 7: Medical examinations and emergency arrangements
Chap. 8: Construction safety
Chap. 9: Electrical safety
These regs should put a (hard) hat on the project.
