John Oliver done a show about this last year I am sure. There are a few police forces doing this now.

In Scotland the courts will sieze money if the owner cant explain where it came from. In criminal investigations that is.

The last person leaving Chicago, don't forget to turn off the lights.

 

I read somewhere they just raised property taxes for the whole state of Illinois, so nobody wants to buy a house when the taxes on the property are more than a car payment.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
