I got pulled over yesterday afternoon. And then I went to prison. No, the consequence for speeding isn't THAT harsh; in fact, the whole reason I was driving in the first place was so I could go to prison. I guess I should explain...

Whenever I have an uninterrupted weekend off from my "real" job, I try to travel somewhere. Because of the holiday, I had a full 72 hours off, but in the midst of planning for some big upcoming trips and recovering from the adventures of the previous week, p...
