Yes folks, it's time once again to laugh at those silly laws that still stand in North America today. Just pick your state and stare in disbelief at the rulings still in effect:

Example:

Iowa - One-armed piano players must perform for free

Utah (SLC) - No one may walk down the street carrying a paper bag containing a violin.

I live in California and there a TON of dumb laws here. I did know about this one, though:
Chico
Detonating a nuclear device within the city limits results in a $500 fine.
I went to college here and this law actually came into effect while I was there. A train carrying some dismantled nuclear weaponary was going to go through the city. Well, they wanted to try and use this law so the train couldn't go through. Funny thing is, there is a missile silo right outside the city. I think it is empty, though.

#
Des Plaines
# Wheelbarrows with For-Sale signs may not be chained to trees.
Des Plaines is home to O'Hare International Airport, depressing.
Chicago-# Kites may not be flown within the city limits.
This is actually a good law. It is always windy, and there are a lot of places you wouldnt want a kite going.
The English language is not to be spoken.
This law seems to be being followed...
#
Morton Grove
# You may not own a handgun
This is actually law in a lot of Illinois cities including Chicago, fortunately for me I dont live in any of them.

Yeah....I had to spend the night in the slammer for this one. It's not a joke...

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO what a ride!"
