Dumb Laws in New York
The penalty for jumping off a building is death.
I just really really want to work that into an RP plot somehow. It's just a shame dumblaws.com
is so unreliable. I mean, it has the bale of hay for taxis law on it
. Still, it'd be nice if I could somehow work this into a plot for Mel. Somehow.
That little tidbit was one of the things brought up in John Holmes' piece on The Now Show
last night, among other things for which non-US citizens can be 'legally' (US law, not international law) be kidnapped in other countries and taken to the States
, regardless of extradition treaties. The show will be broadcast tonight, and I recommend it as highly as i usually do, but I think it has a particularly international flavour this week.
