Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: My partner-in-crime and I have carefully planned out a carjacking of a sports car, down to the last details. I think we have idiot-proofed it, but I have this nagging doubt. Are there any key things we should remember?

Answer: Do either of you know how to drive a stick shift? (The Associated PressDeputies: Carjacking failed, car was stick shift)

2) Question: I get a weird vibe from my doctor. He just doesn't seem to know all of the basic doctor stuff that I expect him to know. Are there any tell-tale signs that he may not be a real doctor?

Answer: Does he sometimes try to answer your questions by going on the Internet to consult That would be a red flag. (CTV News, Sheriff: Man stole doctor's ID, saw 500 patients)

3) Question: I have worked for this company for 10 years and now they are asking me to take a pay cut. I really want to moon these bozos and walk right out the door. Could doing so affect the $2 million in unvested profit-sharing that I am owed by the company?

Answer: Yes, indeed. Live by these words: "He who would moon a superior should first consider whether his profit-sharing plan has vested." (Lowering the Bar, The Two-Million-Dollar Moon)
