Here are today’s three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.
1. Question: My dumbass roommate (aka “Florida Man“) stashed four live rounds of ammunition in our oven without my knowledge. When I preheated the oven today to cook myself a snack, the bullets exploded and I was sprayed in the chest and the leg with shrapnel. Can Florida Man be charged with a crime here? Please?
Answer: Sorry, It looks like Florida Man will not be charged. (Daily Mail, Woman ‘shot’ and wounded as she cooks a snack after bullets left in her OVEN explode)
2. Question: I work at the DMV taking driver’s license photos. We have a firm rule that head coverings can’t be worn in license photos unless it’s for religious reasons. A man who claims he is a practicing “Pastafarian” is adamant about wearing a pasta strainer on his head when I take his driver’s license photo, but I am quite dubious. Is this a real thing?
Answer: Pastafarianism, or the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, is a movement opposing teaching in schools of intelligent design and creationism. Other Pastafarians have tried (and sometimes succeeded) to wear pasta strainers on their heads in driver’s license photos, as well.

3. Question: I live in Tulsa County, Okla., and I simply cannot find a meth lab for the life of me. Are there any meth labs in my town?
Answer: Open your eyes, man! At last count, Tulsa County police had identified 979 contaminated meth lab sites in the county — the most of any county in the nation. (CNN Money, Do you live near a meth lab?) (via Constitutional Daily)
