We thought it'd be fun to find out things about our state that I didn't know.  So here we go, ten dumb laws that Texas still has.  Enjoy!

Now we are not strangers to dumb rules and laws.  Unfortunately, they will always exist.  I've done a little digging and found out that Texas has some pretty ridiculous laws.  I'm sure that nobody goes around enforcing them, but if they do watch out!

  • It is illegal to sell one's eye.
  • The entire Encyclopedia Britannica is banned in Texas because it contains a formula for making beer at home.
  • When two trains meet each other at a railroad crossing, each shall come to a full stop, and neither shall proceed until the other has gone.
  • It is illegal to take more than three sips of beer at a time while standing.
  • It is illegal to milk another person’s cow.
  • A recently passed anti-crime law requires criminals to give their victims 24 hours notice, either orally or in writing, and to explain the nature of the crime to be committed.
  • One must acknowledge a supreme being before being able to hold a public office
  • Wire cutters can not be carried in your pocket.
  • It is illegal to drive without windshield wipers. You don’t need a windshield, but you must have the wipers.
  • A city ordinance states that a person cannot go barefoot without first obtaining a special five-dollar permit.

My favorite, you must warn your victims that you are going to commit a crime against them!  What's your favorite?
