Fool me once...

On the one hand, it's hard to argue with repeated success, but on the other hand, you've got to know when to quit:
A Baltimore man who admitted to faking seizures to get out of paying several restaurant tabs was sentenced to 18 months in jail.

Andrew Palmer, 43, pleaded guilty to one count of theft scheme was sentenced to 18 months in jail after prosecutors said he faked seizures to get out of paying for food between April 26 and July 21 at restaurants including Capital Grille, Burke's Cafe, Ding How Restaurant, Maisy's Restaurant, and Borinken Bar and Restaurant, The Baltimore Sun reported Wednesday.
The article goes on to note that medical personnel were called to the scene of several of this guy's "seizures" without figuring out that he was faking, which has led me to the conclusion that I never actually want to have an actual medical emergency in Baltimore.
