These sorts of things never fail to amuse
I love these things. Seriously, though, no age of consent in Japan?
I can see the line of pedos forming now
That is a truly bizarre one... I'd like to know how that came about.
Kansas (allegedly) If two trains meet on the same track, neither shall proceed until the other has passed.
We someone most stop him
Just hope the doctor is good at reflected hand eye coordination.
That is a pretty funny list.
Now off to York I go. hi-ho hi-ho hi-ho hi-ho
They misread "guppies" as "puppies"? Dey doo doh, don't dey doh
Here are some interesting ones from Connecticut.
-Town records may not be kept where liquor is sold.
-You can be stopped by the police for biking over 65 miles per hour.
-In order for a pickle to officially be considered a pickle, it must bounce.
-It is illegal to dispose of used razor blades.
-It is illegal to discharge a firearm from a public highway.
And this one which is always enforced
-You cannot buy any alcohol on Sundays.
Ha, this is great! *bookmarked*
That one qualifies more as a ludicrous lack of law...
That one makes sense from a historical perspective especially when you consider the civil war.
Still some of the others really are odd.
If memory serves, the 'no mince pies on Christmas Day' law was brought in by those fun-lovin' Puritans way back in the 17th Century they banned all kinds of festive frivolity. Once they lost their grip on power mince pies and the like soon returned, but the laws were never officially taken off the statute books.
How does anyone live past 15!? I know I wouldn't of!
Just how old are you JC?
I'm just old enough to remember not getting any presents that year...
It's a shame that there's been such progress in the last ten years, because I remember not being allowed to sell spirits on a Sunday in Guernsey, to the point that the garages couldn't sell petrol as it's a spirit.
He's about 2007 give or take 40 years isn't he?
Well Jaffa Cakes were sent from God.
Amen to that
Jaffa = Jesus.
I thought having two accounts was against the MR rules
There are several lists of strange laws but I wonder on some of them if they are true or not. Some couldn't be enforced anyhow. Until a couple of years ago it was against the law for gay men to have sex in Texas and the reason it became legal is they tried to enforce it, I do not remember how the story went but the supreme court shot the law down.
I believe it was actually Oliver Cromwell who actually even Christmas completely.
Dumb laws and a holiday = one hell of a funny book
Any Chicagoans know if it's still illegal to take your cow into the Loop (downtown) after 5PM?
By the way, I checked on this one (because it didn't seem right) and Japan does actually have an age of consent, it's just a bit hazy what it actually is. It can be anywhere from 13 to 17, depending on where you are and who you ask. I wonder how many of these laws aren't real...
I've actually got three accounts this one, the son's, and the holy ghost's.
