You thought your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was low enough to drive, and you were able to perform the roadside sobriety tests accurately. The only problem is that you blew a .08 percent on the Breathalyzer.

Divorce is actually responsible for making American families bigger than ever, growing them up to 66 percent thanks to stepparents, parents, half and step-siblings and others coming together into one family.

Boating under the influence
