Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I am six years old and my friends want me to throw eggs at this old man's house. I'm kind of scared -- what is the worst that can happen to me here?

Answer: Don't do it. If you pick the wrong grandpa to mess with, he may try to retaliate with napalm. (The TelegraphGrandfather caught making napalm after being egged)

2) Question: What is the record for the longest sentence used in a complaint in a lawsuit? I have crafted one that goes on for 345 words!

Answer: You may well have the record. But it may get you disbarred, too. (ABA Journal, 7th Circuit Slaps Lawyer for 345-Word Sentence and Briefs Full of 'Gibberish')

3) Question: I just finished watching the "Wedding Crashers" scene where Owen Wilson's character makes his enemy sick by putting drops of Visine in his drink. Hilarious! Does this really work? And could I get in trouble if I tried this in real life on my annoying roommate? 

Answer: You should consult with Poison Control Blog Watch on your first question. On your second question, you could be looking at felony charges for "placing foreign objects in edibles" and 90 days in jail if you try to have life imitate art in this way. (Mail OnlineStudent jailed for 90 days for putting eyedrops into her room-mate's water after seeing stunt on Wedding Crashers) (via Consumerist)
