Strange Laws
 
Laws against feminine wiles? It's illegal to drive more than two thousand sheep down Hollywood Boulevard at one time?

Statistics show that 87% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

I can't remember where this law applies, but somewhere in America it is illegal to put a skunk in your boss's desk.

  • *I once heard that in Florida they have an old law on the books that was never taken off. It states that it is illegal to take a shower in the nude.**

  • *I also heard that somewhere in middle America, it is against the law to take a shower between the months of October and February.**

  • *Since it was never taken off, a lot of people break the law every day.**

    And we'd appreciate it if more people would break that law every day.

    The Ohio driving law states that you must honk the horn whenever you pass another car. God I wish they'd repeal that. EVERYONE follows it.

    Ohio law also states it is illegal to fish for whales on Sunday.

    Which is interesting since I didn't know there were whales in Lake Eerie ; )

    Here's a newspaper story, I'm deleting names... Sapula, Okla. A convicted rapist has been sentenced to life in prison for spitting on a police officer. Creek County Associate Judge *** folllowed the recommendation of a jury for the maximum sentence against *** under a law that makes it a felony to place bodily fluids on law enforcement officers. The judge rejected a prosecution request for a 25-year prson term and a defense request for a 4 year term. Following sentencing Monday (6-30-03) the defendant's attorney promised an appeal to the state Court of Criminal Appeals. The defendant was convicted of hurling body fluids on Sapula Officer *** while the officer taking the defendant to jail followig a domestic disturbance.... ok i understand in this day and age, with AIDS and all, but to get more time for spitting than rape? and why are these laws only for the law enforcement? would they even TRY to arrest anyone spitting on us civvies?

    In Atlanta Georgia they posed a law that it would be illegal for a restaurant not to serve sweet iced tea.

    Oo, do you think I can get that passed here in Ohio?


    Danielle Moore - 05:12pm Oct 15, 2003 PST(#131 of 166)

    Sure you can get it passed if your state lawmakers are bored enough.

    There can be no triumph without loss… no victory without suffering… no freedom without sacrifice… (from TROTK trailer) True words even for today.

    Hi hahayourastalker. There is a section that is for "useless" facts. That would have been the place to post your fact. Please feel welcome to explore this site. I assure you that you will trully have lots of fun. :-)
