Here’s some humourous food for thought. Those of you in front of a Linux/Unix system, install fortune-mod and have a squiz at /usr/share/fortune/law — or just view this file that I have compiled. Looking around, I found some more from elsewhere.
After you’ve stopped laughing… a query… How many of these laws are actually true? I’m curious to know.
One theory that was proposed to me, is that there may not be a law as such prohibiting some act mentioned, but that someone was charged whilst doing an act mentioned in that document. (e.g. shooting off a policeman’s tie… shoot anywhere near a policeman, and I’ll bet you’ll get busted!)
So, a query… how many of these are urban myth, and how many are actual laws? And what law enforcement agency would have the audacity to enforce them?
