You people can't even tell a warp matrix flux capacitor from a self-sealing stem bolt, and yet you have the nerve to call yourself Trek fans? You disgust me.  And btw, this is a self-sealing stem bolt:

My ex says cops came to her house to arrest me for a hit and run, which I will firstly say I do not recall. She may be making it up to freak me out (wouldnt be new), but I am conscerned. I was hit in the back by a car on wednesday and maybe when I was hit I was knocked into the car in front of me and didnt notice, it happened really fast. I spoke to the lady that hit me, all was well, no cops called. But I didnt even consider that she knocked me into the car in front of me. What to do???

First - Did you stay at the scene of the accident long enough to get insurance and contact info from the woman who hit you?
Second - Did any person who may have been in front of you stay as well?
Third - Is there any damage to the front of your car?
Fourth - Is your ex crazy?  (I mean, yeah, obviously she is, but I am wondering if she is crazier than normal?)

Where I am going with this is, IF you stayed at the scene long enough to get info from the other motorist AND IF no one stayed who might have been in front of you, the likelihood of them being hit is slim.  Even if you did, they weren't concerned enough about it to have stayed at the scene of the accident so you should not be guilty of anything.

This may be negated if there is damage to the front of your car.  If not then this just adds to the unlikelihood of the event.
If your ex-GF is crazier than the amount usually exhibited by ex-GF's then this makes the claim even more likely.  

First - yes, Second - she did, but the light was red at the time, Third - Nope, Fourth - Eh, no but can be mean.

I got out of the car to talk to the lady who hit me, so if I hit the lady in front, should she not have came to talk to me???

Yes.  If she had been hit she should have gotten out to retrieve insurance and contact information.

Would the fuzz follow that?

Just learned that Libya used to be monarchy before Gaddafi's dictatorship. I wonder if there is any support for monarchy in present Libya and what was king Idris' relationship with Libyan Christians?

It'd be good if Libya becomes a Christian kingdom again.  :) I can dream, can't I?  ;D

Was it a Libyan monarchy or an Italian one?  They were an Italian colony at one time.

I'm not a lawyer or a cop, but I have been in accidents before.  That's how I always figured things.  I was told before that if the damage is over $500 or so you need to file a police report, any under that than it's not necessary.  But if they didn't care to file a police report, I'm not sure how much they plan on filing suit for.

My dad got me a hand painted icon of St. John the Baptist, my patron, for Christmas.  It is absolutely stunning.  It is based upon the image from Dionysiou monastery on Mount Athos.   I am so happy.  :-)

You can do a search for your favorite types of music or favorite bands, and see what podcasts come up. Most of the podcasts on iTunes are free. There are also lots of other music sites. Podcasts can take up a lot of time- many of them last from 1-2 hours or more. :)

Good idea, thanks for remining me! I had listened to some podcasts before, but I didn't like enough stuff to keep listening. Really I suppose it's just a matter of finding the right ones though.
