TO IGNORE IS CONTEMPT

If I were driving 95 in a 65, and I had three cop cars behind me on my bumper, blaring their lights and sirens; they would be upset that I was ignoring their will; and yet mankind attempts to paint most of society as "nice folks" despite how glaringly they leave God out of everything. Nevermind the blatant attacks upon God as "indicative" of man's rebellion, merely observe the "gall to ignore" God as a guide to their hatred of Him.

A 37 year-old Swede may pay the world's heaviest speeding fine for driving such a sports Mercedes at a speed of 186 mph. (Philippe Desmazes/AFP/Getty Images) A 37 year-old Swedish man who was caught driving his Mercedes SLS at a speed of 186 mph along the A12 highway stretching between Swiss Bern and Lausanne last Friday, may be fined the world’s biggest recorded speeding fine of over $1 million.

According to Swiss police, this is the fastest vehicle ever caught on the highway in Switzerland. Several cameras could not detect the speed of the luxurious limousine because their radar guns stop working at 125 mph.

Motorway fines in Switzerland are calculated based on the driver’s income and by how many miles he or she exceeded the maximum speed limit.

The previous biggest speeding offender was 44-year-old Anssi Vanjoki, executive vice president of mobile giant Nokia. In 2001 he was made to pay almost $150,000 after driving his motorbike 47 mph in a 30 mph zone in Helsinki.
