Groundhog Day poll

Let's say you were trapped in the same predicament as Bill Murray in Groundhog Day; doomed to repeat the same day in a small town, some miles away from where you actually live. Only you have the knowledge of what's happening, and what happened the previous version of this day, and the day before, etc. EVERYTHING resets the next day. After the first 100 days of replaying the same day, what charges would you have had brought up against you by then?

Larceny
35(10.8%)
Arson
23(7.1%)
Murder
7(2.2%)
Manslaughter
8(2.5%)
Grand Theft Auto
40(12.4%)
Grand Theft Donkey
26(8.0%)
Public Nudity
31(9.6%)
Public Intoxication
48(14.9%)
Sexual Harassment
23(7.1%)
Vandalism

Maybe after a while, you'll think of using this time loop to try and improve yourself, seeing as you're given the gift of time. What skills or knowledge will you have picked up or would start to pick up after the first 200 days?
