Thursday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: So I'm on the plane watching the in-flight movie and I look over at the guy next to me and he is dead. As in deceased -- he died during the flight! I'm sorry for his family's loss and all but shouldn't there be something in it for me, for my trauma?

Answer: Yes. An $84 coupon for your next flight. (Consumerist, Sorry A Guy Died Next To You, Here's A Coupon)

2) Question: It is a free country right? If I want to change my name to "" then I can darn well change my name to "," right?

Answer: Yes to your first question; no to your second question. (Gawker, Awesome Man Cannot Change His Name to ‘')

3) Question: I have had it with these nudist men who walk around the Castro district in San Francisco every day buck naked. Isn't that against some law? 

Answer: Sorry, but walking around naked in San Francisco isn't currently against the law, unless the person is aroused. Then the conduct can be considered lewd and therefore illegal. Under newly proposed legislation, however, nudists will be required to put a towel or something under their behinds if they sit in public and to cover up when they're in a restaurant. (San Francisco ChronicleDear nudists: Please cover up, the seat at least)
