After we confirm your address with the US Postal Service, your voucher for a free steak dinner will arrive in the mail within 4 weeks.

When it arrives, go walkabout to the Outback you picked and dig into the natural flavor of our new Wood-Fire Grill menu.
yay!

Outback is trash, just like Red Lobster and Olive Garden.

Snapped a picture of a local municipal police interceptor doing 95 in a 65 on my way to work. I don't think they appreciated it. Maybe one day my documentation will pay off. Gotta keep them honest too.

True. While I have Black-listed Outback since my last visit in June, I still take a free steak and side.

Taking handouts is the one obvious thing you have in common with the sort of people who consider those establishments to be high class.

free sample, not handout. I don't need the steak, but I'm willing to try it, and wont rely on it to be a right.

Watch out for such practices, I almost got a beatdown from several cops.

The f**ed up thing was we were organizing our photography gear to document one of the best waves hitting the coastline, the flash was fired by mistake. A police was beside us and got pulled over, two other patrol cars came over, and asked why we were taking pictures of them, which we explained was the flash went on by mistake.

My buddy and I almost got beat in our own neighborhood, and (back in the day it was film SLR), the cops took the film and destroyed the film by exposing the roll to light. We were lucky the cameras did not get confiscated.

It is not reasonable (or moral, or just, or appropriate) when government seizes assets without a conviction. In this case, taking the film isn't even legal.

no, you didn't.

Quote:
Raul Stio, a New Jersey businessman, is caught up in the civil-forfeiture world. Last October, the Internal Revenue Service, suspicious of Mr. Stio’s bank deposits, seized more than $157,000 from his account. Mr. Stio hasn’t been charged with a crime. In a court filing in his pending civil case, the Justice Department alleges that Mr. Stio’s deposits were structured to illegally avoid an anti-money-laundering rule that requires a cash transaction of more than $10,000 to be reported to federal authorities. Mr. Stio made 21 deposits over a four-month period, each $10,000 or less, the filing said. Steven L. Kessler, Mr. Stio’s attorney, says there was no attempt to evade the law and that the deposits merely reflected the amount of cash his client’s businesses, a security firm and bar, had produced. Mr. Stio was saving to buy a house, he says.
Mr Stio would argue against your correction Joe.

Zaher El-Ali has repaired and sold cars in Houston for 30 years. One day, he sold a truck to a man on credit. Ali was holding the title to the car until he was paid, but before he got his money the buyer was arrested for drunk driving. The cops then seized Ali’s truck and kept it, planning to sell it. …The police say they can keep it under forfeiture law because the person driving the car that day broke the law. It doesn’t matter that the driver wasn’t the owner. It’s as if the truck committed the crime. “I have never seen a truck drive,” Ali said. I don’t think it’s the fault of the truck. And they know better.”

The police can seize your property if they think it was used in a crime. If you want it back, you must prove it was not used criminally. It's a billion dollar business...legal theft that is. Convict first, seize second.

How do you take a photo of something and prove it was moving at a certain speed?

i.e. if you took a photo of an interceptor doing 60 in a 65 it will probably look the same.

Citing one case (or a group of cases) in which the law was applied unjustly does not nullify the law.

I could cite cases in which people have been wrongly convicted of murder. That does not mean that the law against murder is unjust / illegal / unconstitutional / etc.

You nailed it in the last sentence. It may be annoying, but it is legal.

Of course, it takes slightly more than a "hunch." To seize property without an arrest, you need a warrant from a judge. Judges, incidentally, are elected officials.

Beat me to it. Most people don't seem to roll around with a radar gun.


So I finally upgraded my mismatched ddr2 to 4 sticks of ddr2 800 (PC6400) on my Core 2 Duo system from 2007. Stock clock is 2.13GHz. I had been running at 2.78 since half of the RAM was holding it back. A couple minutes of tweaking and I'm at what appears to be a Prime95 stable 3.48GHz. On less CPU and DRAM voltage. Gonna leave prime running tonight and hope it doesn't error out.

This is all part of my plan to make this computer capable of running Battlefield 3 in ultra sexy mode when it comes out. Next step is a new PSU to support the final step: 2 HD 9650s in CrossFireX.
