Weird Laws

Have you ever heard a law that you just could not believe is true much less that people followed it. For example did you know that in Alabama you can’t have an ice cream cone in your back pocket. Or that putting salt on a railroad track is punishable by death ( also in Alabama ). There are a bunch of these weird laws in every country and city.

Some of the laws don’t even make sense for example in Texas if two trains meet each other at a railroad crossing, both have to come to a full stop, and neither can proceed until the other has gone. How does that even work if they come to a full stop and can’t move on how is the other one supposed to proceed. Another weird one is in New York you can not throw a ball at another person’s head just for fun, I mean imagine of little kids throwing balls at each other and someone hits someone in the head. And hear this one the penalty for jumping off a building is death.

Honestly whoever came up with these laws either has a strange sense of humor, a weird sense of justice, or just plain out believes these are serious things that require laws. Well at least we can get a laugh out of it. But still they should try rethinking these laws they feel a little outdated. Here’s one last weird law before the end of this post, did you know that in Kentucky You may not dye a duckling blue and offer it for sale unless more than six are for sale at once. I mean honestly who would do that anyway.

Weird Phobias

Have you ever heard a weird phobia, that you just couldn’t believe is an actual phobia? Well they’re true.

Some of them are really funny like Consecotaleophobia, fear of chopsticks. While others are kinda ironic like Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia, fear of long words, imagine having that fear and trying to say that. There are all types of fears, including really weird ones like these.

For more weird phobia you can find websites like this, that show you many weird and funny phobias. Here’s one last phobia Anatidaephobia the fear of being stalked or watched by a duck. This kinda makes me feel bad for people with these fears if they’re afraid of a duck following them.
