    The answer to this question is basically nothing. They might ask what you're doing, if you look drunk they might give you a breathalyzer, if you look high they might check you for pot. Not having ID is not a crime either. If you do need ID for something, you usually have a few days to show up at the station to demonstrate it, but they'll let you go for the time being.

        2. not all apartments have hookups. my first apartment on my own was a studio in a building built before your grandpappy was shooting at bolshevicks/commies

          • Nah Oerdin is actually sort of right but Onodera is white so he'll be cool.

            A photo ID is a must for a Black guy, which makes the whole voter ID controversy so weird to me because there are actually Black guys with the guts to walk the streets without an ID?

            I personally know guys who have forgotten their ID in other pants and got approached by the cops. They would get detained at the station for some time.

            When almost every suspect called in over the radio is a young Black male and that generally fits your description, it's best to have ID on you and cooperate with police. Something like a school or work ID could also alleviate suspicion.

            I've never once been approached by a cop but I don't know any Black guys who haven't.

            • You live in Philly, though. Which is, last I checked, above mason-dixon.

                I know right.

                Also, Oerdin mentioned "Black people where they 'didn't belong'". Nah. This checking ID's thing takes place in the hood.

                Remember, most crimes take place in the hood so that's where the police are looking; and if they're just trying to check for people with bench warrants, as Oerdin suggested, again they'd be better off stopping random people in the ghetto.

                    Wrong, any duty station you would be sent to is considered American soil. You can always vote no matter where you are. I retained citizenship in my home state the entire time I was in the military.

That wasn't decades ago either but in the last 5 years or so.
                      What have we learned, kids? We've learned that 59 words is a long post, and that 33 is 90% of 59.

                        • 8. Is it true that you have to hire a babysitter when you're having a night out because it's against the law to leave your kids home alone?

                          • Yes, but "hire" in this case is a very informal term. Dropping the kids off at the grandparents counts, and its not like you're filling out paperwork.
                            No, I did not steal that from somebody on Something Awful.

                            • Short answer, no. It would depend on the state and the age of the kid. If you habitually left a newborn unattended you could be charged with child neglect. But neglect cases are more about parents who essentially abandon their children and leave them to fend for themselves. Nobody is going to have their kids taken away for leaving them unattended for a few hours.

                                How old is the kid?

                                A lot of parents wouldn't want to leave the kid alone not because it would be illegal but because of concern for the kid without adult supervision.

                                There's also the matter of how would anyone know?
