They're pretty hilarious. You've gotta wonder what they could have been doing (administering roads, schools, whatever) instead of coming up with this stuff. Some people's children, eh? [img]tongue.gif[/img]

Although I'm not sure #1 was that ridiculous. We have a similar one with rats here in Alberta, because of agricultural concerns. We have no wild rats in the province.

So that means I'll have to ditch my seaweed collection? [img]graemlins/crying.gif[/img]

Number 9 is just ridiculous (most of them are, but #9 is pretty bad).

I like #10 regarding margarine vs. butter. This goes to show how silly legislatures can be. Wisconsin is a dairy state, so its legislature strives to preserve the integrity of dairy products -- of which margarine is not a member and butter is.

The whole discussion of stupid laws proves why I think that a super-majority vote should be required to pass any law -- it makes it much more likely that only really needed laws are passed.

Perhaps the biggest flaw in our system is that it is easier to pass a law than it is to remove it from the books. Over time, simple math tells us that an infinite number of laws will be passed -- certainly too much of a burden to place on citizens who wish to abide by the law.

Can't remember where, but there was a law that it was illegal to walk on the sidewalk with an ice cream cone in your pocket on a Tuesday. Now if I could just remember where that one came from.
