Friday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: I want to roll around Silicon Valley with no license plates on my car for years like Steve Jobs did. How do I pull that off without getting tickets?

Answer: A loophole in California vehicle laws gives owners up to six months to get plates for their vehicles. So just do what Jobs did, and switch out your leased vehicle every six months. (Yahoo! Autos, Latest Steve Jobs Mystery Revealed: How He Drove Without License Plates)

2) Question: I found someone's iPhone in a shopping cart at the grocery store. Should I bring it home with me so I can try to figure out who it belongs to and return it to them?

Answer: That would be considerate of you, but make sure you act quickly before the police use the phone's GPS to locate it, and then kick in the door to your house and arrest you for possession of stolen property. (Press Democrat, A painful lesson: Don't pick up abandoned iPhone)

3) Question: I keep getting kidnapped and beaten by an Iraqi gang that wants to force me to film pornographic videos because of my astonishing resemblance to former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein. What am I supposed to do here?

Answer: The blogosphere has no answer for you, sorry. Off the top of my head, all I can suggest is maybe shave off the beard and moustache. (Ahram Online, Saddam 'double' escapes Alexandria porn kidnap gang, again)
