In Baltimore, Maryland, it is illegal to take a lion to the movies. Report Abuse
There goes dinner and a movie…so much for a romantic night out with my lion friend. I think a problem would arise long before the lion even got the movie theater.

In Colorado, it is illegal to use rain barrels or other methods of collecting rain water. They deem that it has already been allocated to the state and the individual does not have a right to it. Report Abuse
Now as far as I can tell that rain really looks like it is falling on my property. Whatever happened to finders keepers anyway? Methods of enforcement would also be problematic…no officer I got that water from my tap I swear!

In Ohio, it is illegal to fish for Whales on Sundays Report Abuse
Two things I want to know about this law, 1) what are they using as bait and 2) how do they reel it in? I want to meet the man who can reel in a whale and then try and tell him he can’t do it on Sunday.
