    In Connecticut, You can be stopped by the police for biking over 65 miles per hour.

    It's legal for couples to have sex in a parked vehicle during their lunch break from work, as long as the car or van has drawn curtains to stop strangers from peeking in New Mexico.

    It is unlawful to lend your vacuum cleaner to your next-door neighbor in Denver.

    In Woodstock, NY it is illegal to walk your bear on the street without a leash.

    It's safe to make love while parked in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Police officers aren't allowed to walk up and knock on the window. Any suspicious officer who thinks that sex is taking place must drive up from behind, honk his horn three times and wait approximately two minutes before getting out of his car to investigate

    In California, community leaders passed an ordinance that makes it illegal for anyone to try and stop a child from playfully jumping over puddles of water.

    In New York, a fine of $25 can be levied for flirting. This old law specifically prohibits men from turning around on any city street and looking "at a woman in that way." A second conviction for a crime of this magnitude calls for the violating male to be forced to wear a "pair of horse-blinders" wherever and whenever he goes outside for a stroll

    In Florida, if an elephant is left tied to a parking meter, the parking fee has to be paid just as it would for a vehicle

    Men may not be seen publicly in any kind of strapless gown in Florida

    Women in Joliet, Illinois, can be arrested for trying on more than six dresses in one store.

    In fire-sensitive Chicago, it is against the law to eat in an establishment that is on fire.

    In Michigan, a man legally owns his wife's hair.

    In Louisiana, it is illegal to rob a bank and then shoot at the bank teller with a water pistol.

    I love the Chicago law, although I have to admit that I think that anyone who is eating in a place that is on fire deserves anything that happens to them. :wink:

    Not yet.....

    Although, given the way the wind is blowing, it probably won't be long.

    Possibly some organisations suffering from misplaced over-sensitivity have decided not to fly national flags, but there's no legal basis for it nor ever likely to be. You will actually find the Cross of St George (i.e. the England as opposed to UK flag) flown far more often now by ordinary citizens than a few years ago. Devolution to Scotland and Wales has made the English wake up to the fact that there is actually a difference between England and Britain :roll: And what with concern about the poor levels of integration of some immigrant groups, there is now more stress on emphasising British values, so the Union Jack won't disappear either (although it will have to be redesigned when Scotland leaves...).

    There's reportedly one still in force in London which makes it legal to urinate against the rear offside wheel of a cab. It doesn't guarantee you against reprisals from the cabbie, though...
