HA! In some ways, sure. I've always had leanings towards the scuzzier sides of society. I see it as a curiousity thing. I do things to find out what they are like, and then it's done. I'm probably lucky I graduated college and didn't get hurt or arrested. But on the bright side, I'm 22 and I've probably finished sowing a lot of my wild oats. I'm not saying I'm looking to get married right now, but I think I'm mostly done doing illegal and dangerous things in the name of insatiable curiousity (but I still want to be a private investigator, probably to watch the other side from the safe distance of "the right side" *snort*).
As for my current boyfriend, he is a big dork! And I love it! He's not "bad" and I'm grateful. At this point, I'm sick of "badboyz". It's probably because of the ex mentioned above. I want someone who respects me, and I refuse anything less. But I only know what to look for because I spent so much time with the wrong people.
Yes, I'm glad I left that trainwreck, too. Eventually the charges were reduced to a $400 fine for trespassing (his side of the story was that the town floozie stole $1000 from him--I was in Sweden when this all happened, or didn't happen). But still, he was not a desireable catch. I was in a rough spot when I met him, but I snapped out of it. Interestingly enough, the same week I started MA was the same week I broke up with him. Coincidence?

I was talking to my sensei at the time about the guy, and he said to me: "Self esteem! Confidence! It's the karate way! Dump the bum!"
It was great.

Whether or not a shoe is considered a dangerous weapon is a question of fact, to be decided by a jury. Almost anything could be considered a dangerous weapon (teeth, fingernails, hands, knees, feet, fists and elbows have all been considered as such). There are some dangerous weapons that are dangerous weapons per se. Guns and knifes are almost always per se dangerous. In this case, all the jury would have to do is determine whether or not the gun or knife was used, not whether or not it was actually a dangerous weapon.
Whether something which is not per se dangerous, such as a shoe, is to be considered a dangerous weapon, is very fact specific. The legal definition of a dangerous weapon would vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, but I'm confident in saying that no jurisdiction specifically names a shoe as a dangerous weapon. I'm equally as confident in saying that while I'm sure case law exists in which a shoe was considered a dangerous weapon, it's relatively rare.

Lawdog may have me here. Upon closer inspection, it is an internal policy that assaulting someone by kicking them is charged as "assault w/ a dangerous weapon to wit a shod foot" and not a matter of statute.
Most of the time it goes to trial or gets plead out as w/ a dangerous weapons, so it has the effect of being statutorially (sp?) defined.
MAN we have wandered off topic.I dork harder than any of you can imagine.

Sometimes I try to get all jiu-jitsu on him. But to no avail. He either just overpowers me or squashes me. I can't even arm-bar him when he lets me just grab one. He decided if we were to have children they would have extremely broad shoulders.
Oops. It seems I answered your question. Besides, the only good photos I have of him are really bad. He shaved off his beard for some reason. Ick. It's back now and he looks burly again. I like that. :P :car6:
