TuteTibiImperes: ComaToast: I blame the metric system. 200 km/h? 60 km/h? This confuses people. If they'd just stick with standards like how many cubits per fortnight, we wouldn't have these problems.

44,094,488 cubits/fortnight (I'm surprised Google knew that one)


I'm now upset at my convert app on my phone for not having this as a unit of measure.

BullBearMS: Phil Moskowitz: BullBearMS: Phil Moskowitz: Civil forfeiture law is probably some of the most despicable parts of the legal system in North America, including the monstrous drug law.

I put it right up there with paramilitary SWAT teams serving no-knock warrants in the middle of the night.

To the wrong house.

Resulting in the murder of an innocent homeowner.

Well I was talking about actual law, but yeah, that's much worse.

Well, that's a pretty specific example of what goes wrong with no-knock warrants, but it happened within a hundred miles of my house.

A father was home sleeping with his girls in the middle of the night while his other half was at work when a SWAT team mistakenly burst into his home and gunned him down.

No-knock warrants and asset forfeiture laws are the two most retarded things to come out of the war on drugs.

They both need to go.


Yes, but was it a poor neighborhood? Because if so he was probably guilty of something. Maybe he had a gang tattoo or smoked weed, so there ya go.

jjorsett: If you can do 200 kph on something as maneuverable as a motorcycle, how do you even get caught?


I had a friend that got caught doing like 130 in a 50 or something like that on a bike.

When the cop pulled him over he said, "Why did you stop?"

whither_apophis: Dumb move Canada. How will police make all that lovely money if they can't seize property when they feel like it?


Oh look, some drugs were hidden in the trunk.

Of course the motorcycle has a trunk! Now what color should our new armored vehicle come in?
