What the--Someone let me publish a book! Check out Not So Superpowered. At 80 pages, it's a quick read. Except for you, Burn. You'll take a week or two.

got an hour? ore a week....

Illegal to mow your lawn on a sunday

when you live next to a soccer field (every little village has one here) you cant sit in your yard while the game is on (if it overlooks the field) ore you have to buy a ticket

Illegal to have a car parked in your yard....unless its registered, has plates and insurrance..and even then the treehuggers are gonna start whining about soil pollution from leaking fluids (even if the car doesnt leak)

But maybee the strangest thing i have ever seen is the 'anti racism' law....., offcourse it was a good idea at first, but they got so carried away with it that now it general means a 'do whatever you want and get away with it' badge for everone who's family hasent been in this country for at least 5 generations and everyone else is basicly screwed....
Your house gets broken into at night buy a guy from poland? you wake up, suprise him and hit him over the head with a baseball bat?
He's gonna get the best medical care , after that 3 months on probation and a slap on the wrist
Y'our gonna get 5 years for attemted murder with racial intempt....

Oh wow...Living in the "bible-beltish" Midwest, we have a bunch of odd laws.

It's illegal to be gay (no PDA is permitted by same-sex-partners)...to do so gets you on the state's sex-offender list.

Same with public urination. If convicted of peeing in public, you go on the sex-offender list.


Some municipalities make it illegal to leave your porch light on all night, park your car on anything but concrete/asphalt, leave your garage door open...the lists are endless!

I'm going to harp on Illinois. It's my state of choice right now. (Some of these pertain only to certain cities.)

You can't speak English. (Don't know how old this one is, but all you Illinois citizens are breaking it!)

You can't pee in your neighbor's mouth.

You can't eat in a place that's on fire.

You can't give a dog whiskey (I'm looking at you, frat partygoers!).

You can't fish sitting on a giraffe's neck.

You can't bowl.

If you beat a rat with a baseball bat, you can be fined a grand.

You can't ice skate at the Riverside pond in June or August.

You can't make faces at dogs (this in a city named Normal).

No pool tables are allowed in public establishments because it encourages gambling.

You can't have a basketball basket on your driveway.

You can only park your truck in a closed garage.

Are you oppressing my right to park on bubble wrap?

Edited. Lousy homonyms.

Don't be absurd.

We could all throw around this or that situation where any particular rule or regulation appears outrageous.

Most municipalities, if indeed they are muncipalities, have paved roads. The United States of America is not some third-world country. However, in places without paved roads, it can likely be assumed that they do not have a regulation preventing the parking of vehicles on non-paved surfaces.

On to your other questions; gravel counts in some areas as paving and not in others. Just as a gravel driveway would count as a paved surface in some areas and not others.

You are aware of basic civics correct? and the fact that we operate under a Federalist system of government where States, Counties, Cities, Municipalities, Townships, etc, etc are allowed to govern areas of law, not prescribed by the Federal Government or a higher State agency, in any Constitutional way in which they choose, yes?

I suppose this is a matter of me being 'whysoserious', but hey, you asked the questions.

Now, in regulatory terms, why parking on non-paved surfaces is a bad trend for places to establish:

-compaction of soil creating poor drainage.
-destruction of grass
-direct discharge of auto fluids into the soil
-maintenance: people will park and leave cars in a back yard for years
-most of all, Self-Governance and the right of places to establish rules and regulations which ensure not only the safety of a people, but a standard of living. If the community through their laws determines that parking cars off a driveway is illegal because it is unsightly and not the intended place to park a car in a neighborhood, then that is good enough for a court to uphold.

It is illegal to drive a horse drawn cart into Sydney on Sundays (any other day if fine though).
It was also required that a person must walk in front of a car with a red flag at all times at elast until the mid 1980's (not enforced though)
It is illegal to walk backwards in Civic (The CBD on Canberra) while eating peanuts
It is not illegal to be in the possession of Tobacco and Alcohol if you are under the age of 18, but it is illegal to sell/provide tobacco and alcohol to persons under 18 years of age

But the crappest one of all for the State of New South Wales is:

If you wish to own an MP Megatron, you must own a Firearms License, and keep the figure in a secured, lockable gun cabinet at all time. If the Police search the premises and the figure is not securely stored away, you can be fined or imprisoned.

A few English ones...

No cows may be driven down the roadway between 10 AM and 7 PM unless there is prior approval from the Chief Constable.

All land must be left to the eldest son.

Since 1313, MPs are not allowed to don armor in Parliament.

Those wishing to purchase a television must also buy a license...unfortunately the government and the BBC don't think this is a strange, out-dated law at all.

With the exception of carrots, most goods may not be sold on Sunday.

All English males over the age 14 are to carry out 2 or so hours of longbow practice a week supervised by the local clergy.

London Hackney Carriages (taxis/cabs) must carry a bale of hay and a sack of oats.

It is illegal to be drunk on Licensed Premises (in a pub or bar).

It is illegal for two adult men to have sex in the same house as a third person.

Any person found breaking a boiled egg at the sharp end will be sentenced to 24 hours in the village stocks (enacted by Edward VI).

Chelsea Pensioners may not be impersonated.

A bed may not be hung out of a window.

It is illegal for a lady to eat chocolates on a public conveyance.

Any boy under the age of 10 may not see a naked manequin.

It is illegal for a Member of Parliament to enter the House of Commons wearing a full suit of armour.

It is legal for a male to urinate in public, as long it is on the rear wheel of his motor vehicle and his right hand is on the vehicle.

Committing suicide is classified as a capital crime.

Interfering with the mail or sleeping with the consort of the Queen is classed as treason, and as such, carries a maximum penalty of death.

Placing a postage stamp that bears the Queen (or King) upside down is considered treason.

You can only shoot a Welsh person with a bow and arrow inside the city walls and after midnight.

You may not shoot a Welsh person on Sunday with a longbow in the Cathedral Close.

It is illegal for a woman to be topless in public except as a clerk in a tropical fish store.

Excluding Sundays, it is perfectly legal to shoot a Scotsman with a bow and arrow.

A license is required to keep a lunatic.

You may not fish on Sundays for salmon.

It is illegal to be a drunk in possession of a cow.

Trespassing on someone else's land is legal.

If someone knocks on your door and requires the use of your commode, you must let them enter.

Mississippi...

In Jackson, Mississippi, it is illegal to drive a car down State Street. It spooks the horses.

It is illegal to have sex in any position except heterosexual, missionary position with the man on top, in a bedroom on a bed that is at least one foot off the ground. (Talk about super specific!)
