Not Double Jeopardy?

I was pulled over for speeding in the Adirondacks. I went to court. The officer didn't show up. The judge told me that I could plead guilty to a (no-points) charge and pay $100, or the prosecutor would drop the charges and then refile them, forcing me to drive 2 1/2 hours to court a second time. So of course I agreed to plead guilty and pay a hundred bucks. Is this legal? Or is it double jeopardy? Is there anything I could have done? YANML. [more inside]

Easily amused

I love scratching off things that are like lottery tickets, for the "What could it be?!" entertainment value and the relative pointlessness of the answer. But I don't care about winning anything, and I have principled objections to paying the Bad At Statistics Tax. What are good options for getting scratch-off things that are not lottery tickets (or I guess are lottery tickets but not ones I had to pay for)? What are other similarly pointless small entertainments of this sort? I already get a big kick out of unwrapping empty boxes.

Another Undecided Consumer

I took a look at the Droid and am very tempted. Have a Blackberry Curve which is fine, but I'm due to upgrade anyway. My contract with AT&T (blech) runs out in October, cancellation fee isn't much. Droid should save me $50/month I'm currently spending to keep my Curve synced with my work Outlook. What think you, hive mind? I know there are a lot of MeFi Droid owners. I trust you way more than Amazon reviewers.
