Dumb Laws

Texas:

It is illegal for a person to shoot a buffalo from the second story of their hotel. Apparently, it is okay to do it from your house or apartment.
It is illegal to milk another person's cow.
It is illegal to take more than three sips of beer at a time while standing.
No one other than a "registered pharmacist" may sell condoms or other kinds of contraceptives "on the streets or other public places.
It is illegal to drive without windshield wipers. Curiously, it doesn't specify that you need a windshield, but you must have the wipers.

Being born and raised in the capital of Pennsylvania, here are some dumb laws from my state...

It is contrary to Pennsylvania law to discharge a gun, cannon, revolver or other explosive weapon at a wedding.

It is illegal to sleep on top of a refrigerator outdoors.

Any motorist driving along a country road at night must stop every mile and send up a rocket signal, wait 10 minutes for the road to be cleared of livestock, and continue.

Fireworks stores may not sell fireworks to Pennsylvania residents.

Ministers are forbidden from performing marriages when either the bride or groom is drunk.

Nothing can beat Singapore's weird laws...

No chewing gums: $1000 fine.
No selling or importing chewing gums: $1000 fine.
No smoking in public: $1000 fine.
No dancing in public: $5000 fine.
No skateboarding in public: $500 fine.
No squatting on the toilet bowl: $500 fine.
No spitting: $1000 fine.
No lift-urinating: $1000 fine.

I believe there are more, but those are the ones my Singaporean friend told me.

Geez, imagine you're chewing gums while smoking while dancing in front of a mall... that's $7000 fine :?

^^^

I had a teacher who spent some time teaching in singapore and according to him there is no fine for chewing gum. I guess it might be like some of the dumbass laws we have over here. There use to be a total ban on selling chewing gum but they have since started allowing the sale of gum as long as it's for medicinal reasons. Like gums that are sold in the pharmacy ailes overe here are allowed.
