    Okay, this is a little bit of a thought exercise. Lay out an original crime, you know, one that...

    you think few people have ever concieved of. Here's the thing: its hypothetical; its all in fun; and this is a crime in which, even in the imagination, no one may be killed; no one may be hurt in any way; and no one may even be frightened. I won't say its a "victimless" crime, of course, there's no such thing. But this is purely hypothetical, in fun and certainly not meant to give anyone any "ideas." We're all upstanding, law-abiding citizens on HubPages, right? Right?

    I'll go first. For example, recall the opening scene in the movie Pulp Fiction. Nobody ever holds up restaurants. "Why not?

    Part of my question got cut off. My original crime is this....

    Nobody ever robs public libraries after hours. Why not? Its probably an unexpected source of loot, what with all that cash from overdue book fines.....

    What's your?

    What about robbing a bakery? I hear they make a lot of dough. (groan)
    Ok, how about "accidentally" stealing a yacht that no one is using at the moment. Perhaps the owners are in Europe for the summer and the yacht is in the Caribbean. You can always return it before the owners even find out about it.

    An original crime is an impossible feat. Everything has been done at least once. I knew a man who enjoyed removing all paper products from high end restaurant restrooms. When I asked him why, he replied that even the rich have to clean the sh*t from their hands occasionally.

    Breaking into a public pool after hours with the best of friends. Stick a bunch of tiki torches in the earth to illuminate the evening, go skinny dipping and having a late night picnic. Of course we'd clean up and beat it out of there before dawn.
