        '"Maggie's Law," is named after a 20-year-old college student, Maggie
        McDonnell, who was killed by a drowsy driver in 1997. The driver
        admitted to being awake for 30 hours after smoking crack cocaine.

        His lawyer successfully argued that there was no law in the state
        against falling asleep at the wheel. The judge barred the jury from
        considering the driver's sleep deprivation as a factor in the
        crash. He was fined $200.'

        Two-hundred dollars for killing someone.  WTF?
        \_ Names named after innocent girls are always stupid
           \_ yeah.. like yer-mom
        \_ Laws named after innocent girls are always stupid
        \_ Was she riding a bicycle or something?
        \_ This is stupid. What if it was not due to drowsiness, but
           just accidential? The driver made a mistake? How can he
           possibily be off by just paying $200? So next time I hit
           someone I'll just say I am sleepy and that's it? America is
           great isn't it? At least in China you get executed. -troll
        \_ Let me guess, no general "driving under the influence" law, just
           a "driving while ETOH intoxicated" law?

11/2    Who will hit $1000 first, GOOG or gold?
        \_ Interesting question.  I would guess GOOG just because stock
           prices are more elastic than metals prices.  But I think it
           depends on the state of the economy.  If the economy falters
           and the Fed cuts rates a few more times, you could see
           the stock market take a correction and gold shoot up.  If the
           economy keeps moving I'd expect the gold spike to diminish.  -tom
           \_ You are pushing it using "elastic" here.  Maybe varaiance.
        \_ Irrationality drives up prices, and GOOG attracts as many
           irrational investors as did dot-com stocks. So my bet will
           be GOOG based on the history of irrationality (e.g. it can't
           possibly happen, people are idiots, ergo, it will happen)
           \_ Gold also attracts a lot of irrational investors.
              \_ The radio told me it can only go up.  I shorted GOOG so I
                 could buy gold.
        \_ Oil.
