Message 2136714 - Posted: 5 Jun 2024, 3:14:05 UTC - in response to Message 2136488.  

Here is an example of someone so stupid, or just doesn't give a cr@p, that they should not be allowed out in public without a minder. Let alone allowed to drive any sort of vehicle.
A Michigan man has been sent to jail after he was caught driving while dialling into his court appearance about driving on a suspended licence.

Honestly, if someone told me about this at the pub, i'd think they were just winding me up with a load of B$.

According to the NYT, https://www.nytimes.com/2024/06/04/us/corey-harris-zoom-suspended-license.html the suspension of his licence was rescinded in Jan 2022.

But the Michigan Department of State said on Tuesday that it had not been notified of the Saginaw County judge’s order to lift Mr. Harris’s suspension.

So his license is still suspended while it's not meant to be?
It just gets more ridiculous as time goes on.

This story just keeps on giving.

Corey Harris did get a suspension, way back in 2010, for failure to pay child support. But it turns out that a judge rescinded that in 2022. So Harris didn’t understand, he told WXYZ News, “how he even ended up being charged with driving while license suspended” after an October 2023 traffic stop.
the fact remains: Harris knew he’d been charged with driving without a license, and he appeared for a hearing on that charge via a Zoom video call he made while driving a car.


But it gets better.

But it is true, in a sense, that he did not “deserve to have his license suspended in the first place.” This is not so much because the policy is unfair, but because he never had a license to begin with.
"The state couldn’t have suspended my client’s license, Your Honor, because he’s never had one! The defense rests."

Except, again, for the driving part.


And then this little bit to round things off

Asked why he didn’t get a license during that time, Harris told the judge he couldn’t get to the Secretary of State’s office because he was “bedridden due to an accident.” It apparently didn’t occur to him that the judge might have records showing Harris had in fact been to that very office on December 28 to renew his state ID. But he did.

Oh dear. You give someone a boat and then they try to wreck it. :-(

If you come across an old sealed tomb with wine in it I suggest that you don't drink it.

Oldest Ever Liquid Wine Discovered—With Gruesome Surprise Inside.

.......The team's analysis revealed the mineral salt profile of the liquid, and, detected certain typical polyphenols, which enabled them to identify it as white wine. The reddish hue of the wine is something that has developed over time because of chemical reactions, according to the researchers.

Intriguingly, the funerary urn holding the wine also contained the cremated bone remains of a male individual, as well as a gold ring. This urn was one of six containing cremated bone remains—those of three males and three females—that were found within niches in the wall of the mausoleum chamber. Only one urn contained the reddish liquid, however......
Cheers.
