US is known for its law enforcement and to consider such a strong structure to have some absurd laws is more like a comic relief. How will you feel about the impositions which don’t make any rational sense to you in general? You better be careful, because absurd or not, the state is pretty serious about its implications. One must wonder and look up to these rumored to be true laws and feel amazed by the results. Still wondering what they are! Let’s have a look.
10. Let’s get drunk!
Are you thinking about getting drunk? Which place pops up in your head at this question? A bar, of course. But let me warn you, you shouldn’t head to a bar in Alaska for your adventure. The state has made an unconventional law, if you get drunk in an Alaskan bar, you have to leave the place immediately. Isn’t the purpose of such places unfulfilled? In addition with this, you might bump into some under cover cops who’ll be looking forward to your one wrong move and put you behind the bars. Though the law of being drunk in licensed places has been existing for years but it is recent that police have been enforcing people and charging them for violating the law in the most unconventional pursuit.
9. Harassing a Bigfoot. Big boss dictates no.
We all are familiar with the myths related to Big foot but creating a law for an ambiguous existence is something fascinating. The government is still very keen on providing the unidentified creature with the protection under law. If you are ever witnessed trying to harass, capture, kill or do any objectionable activity with a Bigfoot, you would need to pay a huge prize under the law orders. Needless to say, one actually needs to find and fight the mysterious creature. Ska mania County in Washington passed this law regarding Bigfoot in 1969 to protect the undiscovered species and it’s still in practice. To aggravate the gravity of law, any such activity would be considered as a homicide(murder of another human being, in this case, an ape like creature close to human ancestry as giant apes). Crazy as it sounds,better be careful than sorry.
8. You shouldn’t bring your smart phones and computers to internet cafes.
When Florida decided to lower down the cyber crime rate, the only conclusion it could manage was banning smart phones and personal laptops in the premises. As it couldn’t take down the whole set of internet cafes, it tried to set things right by ceasing the access of other communication/personal communication. Well, if it was that simple the crime rate would have dropped long ago and banning personal phones or laptops. It is funny as one would not need their gadgets when they have the world wide web to connect them with the world outside. The sunshine state might have wanted things to be otherwise, but, the law won’t serve the purpose. I wonder what the public would say about this.
7. Rabbit photography.
Think about the nature you love and want to immortalize in form of photos. Now imagine a rabbit fiddling here and there in some bushes; eating, hiding, playing, mating or doing anything. Your instinct would be to take a picture, whereas, you shouldn’t in the months from January to April without an official permit in Wyoming.
Dumb! Isn’t it? An intelligent person would ask why? But we think the law makers were in a flux themselves.
6. Consider a mint or avoid public spaces!
More than a choice, the law makers are worried about the gastronomic activities of a person. In Indiana, you are not permitted to attend a public event or use public transportation if you have consumed either garlic or onion. You have to wait for four hours before boarding in any public transport or attend a public function. The law is clear on protecting the people from facing any inconvenience.
5. Never steal a soap.
You may not like the end of the story, where you steal a soap to clean up and find yourself over doing it when you are caught. Arizona is known for letting the culprit taste their own medicine. If arrested red handed, you will have to clean yourself till the soap bar is finished. You don’t want yourself to smell like soap for a couple of days. Do you?
4. Shaving will be in your favor.
In Eureka, Nevada it’s illegal to kiss a woman if you have a mustache. One will wonder why, whereas, there will not be any distinct answers. Whether or not consenting, you should clean up before you go ahead and kiss somebody under the eyes of law. Would be awkward to get arrested for kissing you beloved? Isn’t it? Anyways it’s better to lose hair of your face than to miss the one dear moment. Many of you would definitely agree on this.
3. You can’t hold hands or you might get pregnant.
In Tennessee if you are students, you must know, it’s illegal to hold hands of the opposite sex as it’s taken for a symbol of physical intimacy. It is considered that if holding hands is sanctioned, they might proceed to other physical activities too. This law is passed to avoid teenage pregnancy, regardless of the possibilities where teenagers will consummate in private spaces and by not portraying it in public through holding hands will not cease the act from happening.Is is not possible otherwise? Could there be a better way?
2.Flirting is against the law.
In San Antonio, Texas you can be booked for flirting. What is the first step that you take when you like somebody? You FLIRT. Of course. Yet, flirting is something not ethical or acceptable under law suits. Though the act is basically carried out in subtle manners, if not, you can cease it at any point. Flirting might come off as an offensive act to public services. How? Well that’s an open debate.
1.Woman driving in main street.
How sexist and anti feminist it will sound, if you were told that a woman can’t drive in the main street of Waynesbro, Virginia until or unless her husband is walking in front of the car waving a red flag. No wonder if your jaw dropped on the mere mention of it. Waving a red flag is going off limits to portray that a woman driver is not only incapable of driving for for herself but for others also. Any hard core feminist would not want to live in such a place. What do you think?
