Stupid laws still valid
I wonder sometimes, where did our lawmakers put their mind when they have cooked up some of our still valid laws? Here I picked one of the gems of the legislature, feel free to complete the list!

It is forbidden in London to shoot a Scot with a crossbow, on Sunday. :))
Otherwise, if it's a weekday or the weapon is anything but a crossbow, the government gives its blessing to the act???? It's not easy to be Scotish in England!!! :D

Well, there must be something with Sundays, because in Ohio a law forbids whale hunting on this day but at the same time another law prohibits arrests on Sundays. :D
But of course, police officers can still look nastily at violators, can't they? :D

Supposedly this is an actual thai law (Thai community members feel free to aknowledge or deny this one):

You cannot leave the house without wearing underwear.

It's not even that weird a law, what's weird is that they must enforce this by law :D

I think stupid laws should be made to improve the level of discipline among the people. BUT I agree that there are some laws present that are really dumb or stupid. There is even no sense of making such laws. Some laws of such types are. 1. Dogs may not bark after 6pm. 2. No vehicle without a driver may exceed 60 miles per hour. 3. It is unlawful to walk backwards after sunset. 4. It is considered an offense to shower naked. You can also find some more stupid laws from here. http://www.elistmania.com/still/50_stupid_laws_from_50_states/
