Testing out this Blackbird Pie Tweet-embedder that WordPress is talking about…
Apparently all I have to do it put the tweet’s url on a line all its own, and it imports the whole thing. Pretty snazzy.
Really though… if I rode around in the back of my Subie or in the back of the wife’s Scion (assuming the seat was down), I’m pretty sure I’d get a ticket. Even if I had the Ark of the Covenant that we had just rescued from the infamous secret government warehouse… I’m pretty sure I’d still get a ticket. Yet, these people on TV get a free pass.
Not that I’m a staunch seat-belt law supporter… but it is a law now, and I wear one as it has saved me from serious injury in the past. Maybe I’m completely off base, as this does happen in other states where they might not have click-it-or-ticket laws. I remember riding with my cousins in the back of my dad’s GMC pickup (with a cap) from here all the way to Myrtle Beach when I was a little kid. Nobody died, and it was actually a fun trip.
I just think it’s funny that one can do something illegal on camera, broadcast it, and face no repercussions… yet I park on the street in from of my house 1 or 2 days a year on a non-holiday weekday between certain hours or on a street-sweeping day and I get a ticket.
