There seems that new laws are always being put into place but, ironically, none ever get taken off the books.

I'm not taking about laws that a few years or even a decade old. I'm talking about the ones that have been on the books for centuries.

Take a look at some of the laws that you may have broken and not even known it.

  • It is against the law to take more than three sips of beer at a time while standing
  • It is illegal for one to shoot a Buffalo from the second story of a hotel
  • It is illegal for one to milk another person's cow
  • An anti-crime law requires criminals to give their victims 24 hour notice, either orally or in writing, to explain the nature of the crime.
  • The Encyclopedia Britannica is banned in Texas because it contains the formula for making beer at home.
