Dumb laws

1.) South Dakota- If there are more than 5 Native Americans on your property you may shoot them.

2.)Hawaii-Coins are not allowed to be placed in one's ears

3.) Texas-When two trains meet each other at a railroad crossing, each shall come to a full stop, and neither shall proceed until the other has gone.

4.)Virginia-It is illegal to tickle women.

O.k these are just stupid.

Those are all stupid, but the South Dakota one is the worst. Ugh.

Gah!! You're right, Queen Emily. That South Dakota law is beyond stupid. It's downright racist!

Siren, what do you think it says about our society that we'd still allow laws like the one in South Dakota to remain in the state constitutions?

Makes you wonder what some people were thinking, huh? Well, we know what they were thinking for the SD one. :(

the coins in the ears one, though...

"you know, we really need to do something about this coins-in-the-ears epidemic we're having."

I'm not seeing it.

Most of the time, I look at dumb laws and wonder just what the hell prompted their passage.

That SD law is just plain scary plus stupid.
