Tuesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: My plan is simple. I will place my feces along with other waste products such as fertilizer on a heater and turn it into gold. Then I will be rich -- bwaaaaa haaaa haaaa!! Do you see any risk here?

Answer: Check with Alchemy Blog Watch for technical details of the feces-to-gold plan, but from the legal side just make sure that you do not burn down your home and get yourself charged with arson and endangering the lives of others. (Yahoo! News, Man jailed after trying to turn faeces into gold)

2) Question: Have you had any experience with "Welcome Home from Jail" parties? Is there anything we need to be mindful of in planning one for our son? 

Answer: The guest list is critical. Mess that up and multiple stabbings can result. (Bethlehem Patch, 5 Stabbed at 'Welcome Home from Jail' Party)

3) Question: Oh man, there is some kind of terrifying wild animal stalking me and my friends at our midnight bonfire! It has been making noises out in the dark woods for 5 to 10 minutes now. I have my shotgun with me -- is it OK for me to open fire into the darkness? 

Answer: Make sure it is not just a friend making animal noises trying to frighten your group before you start shooting. (Syracuse.com, Man in woods becomes frightened at prankster's noises, shoots him with shotgun, Manlius police say)
