Have you ever done anything..
that would be technically punishable by imprisonment sentence, if you'd have gotten caught?
I did. And a lot of my friends also did. There are situations in life when you know that you are breaking the law, but because the chances to get caught are next to none, and nobody gets hurt, you just do it..
For instance.. One of people I knew got stuck in his home country after working for few years in the States. Visa problems. And the guy is there, in Eastern Europe, and he is running out of money. And then, his former roommate receives a fat $150 rebate check for him. That's a fortune for people who are in Eastern Europe. The problem is, someone has to endorse the check, and that someone is in Eastern Europe. And mailing check back in forth is not only risk to lose it in mail, it will cost you a lot , and it will take monthes of mail circulation. So the guy asks - here is how my signature look like. Please sign it like that for me and get it to my account in the bank. Would you do that? That guy did. Is it punishable by law? I think so. Interesting dilemma, isn't it.. And there are so many situations of this kind, that after living here for few years one might feel a habitual criminal.
