No Statute Of Limitations On Sibling Arguments

| Related | February 27, 2015

(I’m twelve years old and my family is sitting together watching crime dramas on TV.)

Character On TV: “The statute of limitations on [crime] has passed, but not on the [other crime].”

Me: “Dad, what’s statute of limitations?”

Dad: “Well, it means the time they have to build a case and arrest someone. Like, if you rob a store and they don’t find out it’s you until [time frame] you get away with it.”

(There’s a few minutes of silence while the show ends and another show begins.)

Brother: “Hey, dad?”

Dad: “Yeah?”

Brother: “What’s the statute of limitations on murder?”

Mom & Dad: “No.”
