    Will you be a Criminal in 2014?

     

    With 40,000 new laws to take effect in 2014 who can really avoid breaking one or two? We're legislating ourselves to death.

     

    To be fair there are laws ranging from restricting our rights to restricting what government can do. Most of the laws are local or state laws.

     

    So how many women actually want to take their placenta home after giving birth? In Oregon you will have the right to do so in 2014. Will you give it a name and make it a pet? How did it even come up as a topic to legislate?

     

    New Mother: Don't throw that away!
    Doctor: What?
    New Mother: Put it in a bag.
    Doctor: Huh?
    New Mother: I want to take it home.
    Doctor: Ummm, you can't.
    New Mother: Why?
    Doctor: Uh, yeah we just don't allow that.
    New Father: I'm calling my lawyer. Don't worry honey we'll get your placenta home.

     

    It is now illegal to detonate a nuclear device within 1,000 feet of a school in the state of Wyoming. Okay, I just made that one up but with so many laws nobody would ever say "No way, that can't be real!" On the other hand I hope it is against the law to do that. Don't you? Better check the books.

     

    Strange laws, retarded laws, unnecessary laws, good laws, bad laws, blue laws, red laws. It's the Dr Seuss of law book. Take it with you when traveling so you know what you're getting into.
