Find yourself in a bit of a mess for shooting people in the butt or something like that?

For minor crimes, it might be better just to take the hit, and enjoy your sentence at the palatial NRM Co private prison on Mercury, where ever day is a sunny day, guaranteed! If you get sentenced to 2 years and each year on Mercury is only 88 days...you'll be out in 5 months or so.

But, if you really can't stump up the cash for the Mercury trip..

The NRM Co holiday is just for you!!! Simply slide onto our Dreamliner, where the flight safety instructions are next to the last will and testament,with the potatoes wrapped in foil, under your seat.

But I digress. Right, by taking the flying tinderb... sorry jet, you are whisked off to a Buddhist country of your choice where the year is 2556, so giving you a healthy margin on 543 years.

Assuming that you have committed some phenomenal crime with a limitation of more that 543 years, then the NRM Co holiday in Israel where it is year 5773, a handy 3760 years in the future.

(comes with complimentary lemon-scented napkins, cornish pastie and pocket wickerman)

       Also would work with the secret CIA jails on Pluto. The planet, not the dog. Anyone surviving even a one year sentence gets an automatic pardon.

       Small problem, though. Suppose you commit another crime whilst on holiday in Bhuddesia; you'll come back to the present, only to be arrested and detained until the crime has been committed, after which you'll be tried and sentenced.

       But you'd have an alibi - "I'm here when it happened!"

       Yeah, but you won't be able to prove it for 543 years.
