    Clinton, Oklahoma has a law against masturbating while watching two people having sex in a car.

    After lovemaking in Ames, Iowa, he isn't allowed to take more than three gulps of beer while lying in bed with you-or holding you in his arms.

    In Connorsville, Wisconsin no man shall shoot off a gun while his female partner is having a sexual orgasm.

    Kentucky state legislation. "No female shall appear in a bathing suit on any highway within this state unless she be escorted by at least two officers or unless she be armed with a club". The following important amendment however is to be considered here: "The provisions of this statute shall not apply to females weighing less than 90 pounds nor exceeding 200 pounds, nor shall it apply to male horses."
    hahaha
    Odd.

    You're not allowed to take liquids into airplanes unless they're in tiny packages within a clear plastic bag. That's an useless rule...

    At my uni, the ducks are protected. If you kill a person, if you wanted to, after you've served your sentence you could go back and complete your degree. However, if you kill a duck you are kicked out of the uni forever

    The swear filter on TSR....
    Plenty of reasons for that, really, if you engage your brain. It's a student site and so accessed regularly from schools and colleges nationwide. If they allowed swearing then the filters at said establishments would prevent access to the forum. That would mean that they didn't get so much traffic and also that you wouldn't be able to access everyone's favourite internet forum. I think it's a worthwhile sacrifice really.

    Hahah yeah it's something like 100mL per bottle or whatever the liquid is in, and a maximum of 500 or 600 mL in total of all of those... and the bag they're put in can't exceed that volume either. At least in HK that's the rule lol.
    Maybe when it's bigger volumes than that it's easier to get poison on a plane... LOL who knows.
    Apparently someone "smart" thinks that 100ml wouldn't be enough to make a liquid explosive.

    However, the rule is unsupervisable in practice, as someone could easily put a 1 liter bag of fluid inside their shirt and not get caught, providing they do not beep for metal in the metal detector (easy to avoid: just don't wear anything made of metal).

    The liquid rule is basically just an annoyance to people who have to throw away toiletries and drinks, while it does nothing to prevent any real danger. (Although the same basically applies for banning sharp objects too, as knives can also be made of materials other than metal and therefore easily hidden).

    In a state in USA (think it's California), you arent' allowed to ride a giraffe and go fishing at the same time.

    It's not a rule, but I think it's a bit weird that all swans belong to the Queen, so if you were to harm one and got caught you'd have her to answer to!
