Dumb Laws

Post by Trooper FN-86 » Fri Mar 16, 2018 10:07 pm

In York it's technically legal to kill a scotsman with a bow and arrow if it's not Sunday. In Baltimore, it is illegal to bring a lion to a movie theater. What are some of the dumbest, funniest, or weirdest laws you've ever heard of?

In Indiana, hotel bedsheets must be exactly 99 inches long and 81 inches wide.
Alone she drifts from ancient mists
Nary a candle, nary a wish
But in the wont of wandering paths
Through wooded knolls, and windworn crags
She seeks a face she thought as friend
But now -- she thinks as judgement's end

Over here, second paragraph of Article 287 states that “any other coercions or unjust vexations shall be punished by arresto menor or a fine ranging from 5 pesos to 200 pesos, or both.”

Which means you can get charged for being annoying, so don’t ever try to test a cop’s patience here.

Arrrr, kansas
Alone she drifts from ancient mists
Nary a candle, nary a wish
But in the wont of wandering paths
Through wooded knolls, and windworn crags
She seeks a face she thought as friend
But now -- she thinks as judgement's end
