    I don't know when this law was written, it might be a holdover from the revolutionary period. So maybe it is referring to formal English; Americans wanted to cut all ties to Britain, and may have felt that developing an American vernacular was preferable.

    Re: Absurd Laws?

    I believe that there is a town in the state of Washington that has a law that states that a couple; regardless of if they're married or not; cannot kiss, hug, hold hands, or show any kind of affection in public. This law has been on the books since the mid 1800s. I can' remember the exact date or the name of the town.

    Sanity doesn't exist, it's just an excuse cooked up by crazy people to justify their actions. My myspace page: www.myspace.com/joemage

    theres a state here that says too... ^^

    Terengganu and Kelantan

    - Couples ; muslims married or not related or not, they are not allowed to do as you mention...sit under the same hut or on the same bench in public... interaction of women and man are restricted strictly... but it is normal to muslims... but it wont be for you

    but i dont like it...it's too...narrow minded...

    If someone already said it I apologize but I kinda doubt anyone here cares about Stinky North dakota enough to know that in ND it's illegal to get into bed or sleep with your shoes on.

    You never really loved me/You never really cared/It was all just a game to boost your ego/Those feelings never really there/ I'm filing emotional bankruptcy/My heart can take no more debt/Theres no more "money" there to spend. === Besides tee hee SHE loves me!

    Now THAT is an absurd law. I ought to be on death row, then . . . I have been known to forget to remove my shoes on many occasions (some of them quite awkward . . . like waking up with them on . . . or realizing that you are wearing them in the shower . . . Yeah . . .).

    Now I've never seen that. But I have had to take Atomik_sprouts shoes off for him on more then one occasion. Lucky for me he didn't have DDR feet that day or I'd have been asphyxiated.
