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 ; )

"It's a cult... they worship blue oysters"... MST3K 'The Final Sacrifice'

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?

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.

Useless Facts can be found by using the grey bar on the left of your screen and going to Social Lounge and then Just For Fun Areas.
