not particularly interesting

Maybe because I've been trying to catch-up on readings for class and for myself, I've been just finding random bits of text very funny. I think it's just me being punchy, but this afternoon, I really started to appreciate judges who write humorous opinions.

For instance, in an opinion from the Court of Appeal of California Fourth Appellate district, Division Three: Appellants may not care if they die in an accident, but other users of the public highways would clearly prefer not to kill them. This is in a case about motorcycle helmet laws in which one of the plaintiffs brought a case because he could not fit his helmet over the knot and turban he wears for religious purposes . . . and must therefore abandon motorcycle riding.

Oh well. I still have a lot more reading to do before tonight's social activity.
