    So No.
    What if the squirt gun is filled with hydrochloric acid?

    still wouldn't stop zombies, and you'd run out pretty quickly
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Getting headshots with squirt guns is extremely unlikely. You'd be joining their ranks pretty quickly.

I am legally obliged to carry this A4 paper certificate as well as my passport wherever I go. I resent being asked and resent having to carry impractical documents that no one else is being required to do.
    Err you got it a bit wrong there. NIE numbers are for foreign residents, that is correct, but the Spanish citizen has the DNI number, which is basically the same thing. You cant function without one of the two numbers in Spain really. And you are not legally obligated to carry around your passport, just any form of picture id issued by an officially accepted organisation... drivers license is fine. And the paper is in no way an A4 certificate last I looked (unless they changed it recently).

    But the government is now intruding in every part of your life. You are under constant surveilance by your government, and they force different parts of the economy to treat you like sh**.

    What do you want, freedom with a risk once in awhile, or no freedom with a risk once in awhile?

    Ps. Thats because there is no such thing as no freedom without a risk.. No matter how many freedoms you give away in fear to be "safe", its never possible to be "safe".
