A baby animals inventory…….
Thinking about file-sharing? Don’t. You’ll get fined, and crime doesn’t pay (unless you rob banks and/or armored cars, then it pays very well). Take it from Jammie Thomas, who was fined $2 million for downloading 24 songs, or anyone else who tried to fight the RIAA.
Instead, try another crime, because plenty of them draw far lighter penalties than downloading Jason Mraz’s latest. Thanks to the Mechanics blog at Gapers Block, here are seven crimes that will get you smaller fines than file-sharing:
1. Child abduction: the fine is only like $25000.
2. Stealing the actual CD: the fine is $2,500
3. Rob your neighbor: the fine is $375,000
4. Burn a house down: The fine is just over $375,000
5. Stalk someone: The fine is $175,000
6. Start a dogfighting ring: the fine is $50,000
7. Murder someone: The maximum penalty is only $25,000 and 15 years in jail, and depending on your yearly salary, would probably be far slighter a penalty that $2 million.
Seriously, murdering someone will result in a lighter overall penalty than downloading a bunch of songs and getting caught. Granted, you don’t get shivved in the showers at home, but still.
The NYPD has reminded its officers that women are constitutionally allowed to be bare breasted in public.
I think this is the only thing that is actually legal in New York.
List of things that were also law until they were repealed:
2. 3/5 Compromise which meant slaves were only 3/5 of a person
4. A man can beat his wife but only once a month
5. All Hawaii residents must own a boat or face a fine
6. Japanese-Americans, regardless of citizenship, were legally interned in California during WWII
7. Voter knowledge tests
8. Oral sex is illegal in Maryland
9. Slave catchers were allowed to go north and kidnap blacks, regardless if they were free or not, in the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850
So, you arrogant son of a bitch, something being law doesn’t mean it can’t be repealed.
Or that it’s moral.
