Breathing in itself is OK as it is likely you are creating your own unique work. However if your breathing matches the pattern or sound that is copyrighted you may be liable. So for example, if you breath soundlessly then it may infringe the rights of John Cage and his work 4:33, this would be true if breathing silently solo or in a group.
And in the UK you don't give a test within (20 mins I think) of drinking last drink and the road side test "fail" will lead to being taken to the police station for the evidential breath test. You give two samples and the lower figure is used.
I also believe there is a margin over the legal limit you have to be over for action to be taken but rules are getting stricter and when you see the results of driving while incapacitated (drugs/drink/illness/tiredness/distraction) it's quite proper to keep roads safer.
Why? You can make cartridges from other meats too. A good traditional boerwors is a pure beef sos from South Africa sold as a spiral and cooked whole on the barbie (braai). Some butchers here in the UK adulterate with pork to make it lighter colour and texture.
Here in the UK election spending is controlled and parties are "given" the same amount of TV time. They can't buy more and just simply advertise though I guess the bigger ones can make more slick and memorable broadcasts.
And once in they have to register interests including "gifts" received and from whom and there are rules about what they can accept.
I don't think you can ever get rid of parties but even here I would like people to think more and vote for persons (who may represent a party) that will best represent them and those persons should be able and willing to go against their party where conscience or local needs require it.
Many 11 a side sports refer to their fans as their 12th man and it is a term used in cricket for a substitute player that can field but can't bat, bowl or "work behind the wicket". They are also used to take equipment and messages out to the batsmen.
What's wrong with the put your mark next to the candidate system we use in the UK. Unless arranged before hand you can only vote in your "registered" polling station and you name is ticked off when you collect your voting paper.
You go to a poll cubicle, make your mark then put the paper in the right box. (We do sometimes have multiple polls same day, usually different colour papers in different boxes.)
When polls close the papers are taken to a counting station and after counting the results are posted. In my area we did have a situation with multiple counts when the difference between the 2 leading candidates was down to single votes. Papers are checked if needed. Observers are present at stations and count. These are mostly volunteers.
Driving without insurance will usually lead to your car being seized and maybe crushed. There is no grace period, you are insured or you are not. It is possible there is an error somewhere so you may get 7 days to produce the documents but you may still not be able to carry on driving.
And if your number plate isn't readable (by the machine) that could also lead to a fine.
