Here's one I found........In Chicago, it is legal to protest naked in front of city hall as long as you are under seventeen years of age and have legal permits. So anyone looking for a good time and a way to blow off school for the day have at it!
Taxpayers should demand a refund for paying those who took the time to vote this into a law.
In Australia, the law looks after the criminal. For example, a person breaks into a house and the residents of the house attacks the burglar either with a weapon or some sort, the home owner/residents are charged with bodily misconduct. It is absolutely stupid, to think a person can break into a house, steal stuff but once the people living in the house dear touches or injures the burglar they are charged. There was a case once where the public was in an uproar over the home owners being convicted for protecting their home. A burglar broke into someone's home, the household had 5 male residents, they tackle the burglar, tidied the burglar until police arrived and all 5 guys got charged for holding someone against their will??? WTF is wrong with this law.
The dumbest law in my country, imho, is that people can have "property rights" in items that they do not physically possess or labor in - like stock shares; remote rental properties; or unextracted fossil fuels, mineral ores and other gifts of nature, to name just a few examples.
Off the top of my head here's a couple I know of for sure: 1. It is against the law for a husband to go fishing on sunday without written permission from his wife. 2. Every home and place of business must have a hitching post for horses to be tied.
Another is that a woman of any age must not sit on her front porch in her house coat and slippers at any time during the hours of daylight. (I assume this had to do with having morning coffee on the porch, which many people do)
Oh wow...tackling and holding the burglar against his will, get them convicted....??? That is definately nuts !!!.
Yes. These days, it's generally called "capitalism" (though it was true in some respects under feudalism, too).
Between Chicago's and your lawmakers...gives a whole new meaning to liberal vs conservative, views LOL
What is the extent of the penalty if you should run out of gas, and do they tow the car off right away?
Dancing is illegal in city limits. Wich is complete bullshit too me, I love dancing.
In Germany, it is illegal for you to have your car run out of gas on the Autobahn.
I could see where some women would still like that fishing law, enforced...LOL
Betcha they have another law about if your found skipping too...LOL
Of course many of these laws were wriiten in the early 1800's
I could see where that would create alot of conflict.
