Title: DATELINE - South Africa Mom on trial for selling spark plugs!
Post by: CheezeFlixz on February 20, 2008, 09:24:50 PM
 American mom Marisa Ann Sketo-Kirsh appeared in a South African court Jan. 28 for negotiating the sale of spark plugs. Yes, you read right — spark plugs. Her charge: importing and exporting “components of nuclear devices.” Who'd a thunk it?

This shows you how paranoid the powers that be are getting in my beloved country but I also didn't know that the little thing that gets my car going can also be a trigger for a nuclear bomb.  :buggedout:

Time to sell my car, I think.  :lookingup:

Spark plugs!  So that was what was missing in my design.  Gotta go to the auto parts store now.
