Not on that list, but in Seattle, it is against the law to carry a concealed weapon that is over six feet in length.

This one can't be real.

Texas: A recently passed anticrime law requires criminals to give their victims 24 hours notice, either orally or in writing, and to explain the nature of the crime to be committed.

I cant find any mention to any even vaugely like it in the texas criminal code. Might have buried it somewhere in the civil code but whoever made this list didnt have a firm grasp on what 'dumb' means.

That is actually a GREAT law. No one is going to follow it obviously. That means every time someone is going to commit a crime to a person (vs say a traffic crime) they break that little law. No big deal right? Huge deal, most minor violent criminals never make it to prison, they get a plea deal because the court system is so congested and prisons are full of "more" violent criminals, now the DA has something that is probably designed specifically to bargain with.

Also in a three strikes state that turns one strike into two.

i really do hate those hanging balls, but it shouldn't be a law, either. i just dread the day when i have to explain those to my five-year-old. :barf:

With all due respect, this is what frightens me. I'm sure its made illegal to 'protect the children'. When and why did children seeing parts of human anatomy become so horrible? We should probably take this one step further and outlaw breast feeding...

Next thing you know there will be laws requiring women to wear garments covering them from head to toe.

The worst law I have heard of is actually an Ohio constitutional amendment:

"This state and its political subdivisions shall not create or recognize a legal status for relationships of unmarried individuals that intends to approximate the design, qualities, significance or effect of marriage."

The only thing recognized by the state is a relationship with legal documentation stating "marriage" as the binding force. No other will do. Hetero or not. No power of attorney, no health or tax benefits, no hospital visitation rights.

Pretty dumb, huh?

I wanna take a stab:

Those are testicles that are found on the anatomy of males.

Being straight forward and honest shouldn't be a big deal. right?

why are they hanging from the truck?
the driver thinks it's funny.
why is it funny?
i'm not sure.

next day from school spange and i get a note saying spangelet's been drawing testicles and showing them to her friends. and telling them about testicles. and making testicles at home and taping them to the fridge and her room window. and then we have to sit down and explain that testicles are part of the private area that is not to be joked about by a five-year-old. and all of a sudden, because we had to be honest, we've driven it back to dirty and wrong from a different perspective.

what is reponduckive system?
why do you need those to make babies?

I would answer the questions honestly again. There is a point that kids understand and I would think it would just take a good conversation.

My parents shielded me and my sibs. I do not approve. LOL
