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 work for the TSA. This man has a "very noticeable" bulge in his pants that does not set off the metal detector -- could this be a biological threat?

Answer: It could be. But it could also just be a part of the man with the largest penis in the world. (The Huffington Post, Jonah Falcon, Man With World's Largest Penis, Frisked By TSA At California Airport)

2) Question: The judge gave me probation on a car burglary conviction, but I still couldn't resist smashing her car window on my way out of court. Is this going to affect my sentence?

Answer: That will probably get your sentence bumped up to three years in jail, revocation of your probation and restitution of $250 for smashing the car window. (ABA Journal, Convicted Car Burglar Gets 3-Year Max for Breaking Into Judge’s Car Near Courthouse)

3) Question: My son is five years old and he is a terrific soccer player. Can I place a legally binding bet somewhere that he will play for the English national team when he grows up?

Answer: Of course. And since he is under the age of six, bookmakers will offer you 1000 to 1 odds that he will go on to play for England, sight unseen. (BBC News, The curious world of long-term bets)
