Monday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I have executed a brilliant plan to steal a car and everything is going perfectly, except I cannot get the car to start. What is going on here? 

Answer: Your target car may have butt identification installed. This is a new technology that "carefully scans a driver’s backside to verify their identity before the car will start. Think of it as a fingerprint for your rear end." If there is not a match, the car won't start. (The Daily, The Can Scan) (via Consumerist)

2) Question: Happy New Year, Legal Blog Watch! Can you recommend a good place in Salt Lake City, Utah, for my law firm to toast the new year with a Happy Hour outing?

Answer: Sorry, but Happy Hour is now illegal in Utah. (Jonathan Turley, The Day Happy Died: New Year To Bring End To Happy Hours In Utah)

3) Question: I am purchasing a vacuum cleaner and a microwave oven from Walmart. The cost is $476 and I'm paying with a million-dollar bill. What should I expect to get back?

Answer: You should expect to receive criminal charges for attempting to obtain property by false pretense and uttering a forged instrument. (The Associated Press, Man arrested after trying to pay with a million-dollar bill)
