  • I would like to know how to have both of my Facebook accounts deleted?

    John’s Answer

    Not much. You gave all your info to FB for free. You aren’t paying them, so they aren’t obligated to do anything for you.

    On Facebook, you aren’t the customer. You (and your information) are the product being sold.

  • Can you be cited for driving on a suspended license when you've never had a Georgia driver's license

    John’s Answer

    Yes you can. When you get convicted of some offense that suspends a license, but you don’t have one, they create one for you and then suspend it, so that you can’t then go get a license in Georgia or most anywhere else without first dealing with the suspension.

  • What is Georgia’s law for car dealerships selling illegally modded cars?

    John’s Answer

    Let’s say you purchase a car without working taillights, and you know it. It’s your job to make the car legal before driving it on public roads by fixing the taillights. Likewise, if you buy a car with illegally dark windows it is your job to make them legal.

    Dark-tinted windows aren’t per se illegal. They’re just illegal for most people.

    John’s Answer

    Unmarried adults shouldn’t buy a home together. It creates a mess when they split up.

    For some reason, young adults are more willing to commit to a 30-year-mortgage than to each other.
