I once heard of someone who put a piece of wood with nails in it under his
seat so that if someone sat down on the driver's seat he'd get punctured. He
did this because his car wos broken in several times. Well, only soem nights
later he heard a loud cry, and, yes, it had worked ... but he got a heavy
fine for severe injury. That's law in Germany - I love it. Perhaps that's
why I would like to go into politics.
