Once back on the East Coast I mentioned, in reference to the greater distances out West, that there are counties in CA larger than the state of New Jersey (8,722 sq.mi.). A coworker who was from New Jersey became very upset and angry at me for dissing his state. I asked what the problem was, no disrespect meant, it was simply a factual observation. There are, in fact, nine states smaller in area than San Bernardino County.
Didn’t help, he just became angrier. I still don’t understand what his problem was – it’s like getting mad because somebody says “Benzine is a hydrocarbon.”
What? Take that back, you bastard!!!!

Did I ever tell you about the time my brother pled “insanity” to a parking ticket. True story.
He had a trailer parked in front of his house and the law said you couldn’t have any vehicles 24′ or longer parked on the street, so they wrote him a big, expensive ticket. So he went out and measured the trailer. Turns out it was 23′, 6″ long. So he goes to court to fight it.
After arriving at 7:00AM to a large crowd of other people, he finally got to have his say at about 11:45AM. The judge asked him how he pled and he said “insanity”.
Judge: Ok, I want to hear this one.
My Brother: Your honor, I got up extra early in the morning, missed work, and I’ve been here for almost 5 hours to protest a ticket that I never should have had in the first place (he then produces pitchers, etc. showing that he was right). I must be insane!
My brother successfully fought a speeding ticket by bringing in his best friend, Vic, as an expert witness to testify that he’s driven that stretch of Route 23 fuh yeahrs, ya Honuh, and there was no way my brother could have been going that fast. I think the judge let him off just in appreciation for the comic relief.
As an attorney who formerly did the majority of my practice in San Bernardino county, I cannot tell you how glad I am that I left the state.
