    Not sure if you're asking me or Jeff, but by my definition, the greater the crime, the greater the thrill. A parking offence: not very thrilling. A serial parking offender who murders a series of traffic wardens: a little more thrilling. A parking offender who abandons his car in Manhattan with a tamper-proof nuclear bomb inside it set to go off in 3 hours, a little more thrilling again.
