Found these on a web site:
In Florida, it is considered an offense to shower naked; what?
North Carolina- Women must have their bodies covered by at least sixteen yards of cloth at all times - Talibian would love that one.
and finally in Oklahoma - women may not gamble in the nude, in lingerie or while wearing a towel, so can guys gamble naked?

Interesting state law here in Arizona is regarding getting a mining claim. Last year I found out from my environmental consulting teacher that an Arizona resident could purchase a mining claim and about 4-5 acres of land for $50. Well the definition of "resident" is not a set thing. For me to buy a gun I just had to live in the state for 90 days, so I figured I was good to go and was already looking into buying a mule and some red long-johns with the butt flap. Well the definition of "resident" as it pertains to mining claims is someone who owns at least 50 acres of land (as written back in the 1850's). So needless to say I was crushed I already had a name picked out and everything.

Quoting YYZflyer (Reply 4): It is illegal NOT to drink milk in Utah. -And what if you're lactose intolerant?
Here's a good one for you. In Ontario Canada you are not allowed to drink beer or liquor in the open, even on your patio. It will cause the kids to follow suit or so they claim. Like to see that law brought before the courts

Well in Delaware, I think our only weirdest law is its Illegal to drink perfume in public. Do people ever do that, no...but its just an old left over law from probably when prohibition was enforced and perfume had alcohol in it.

Silly laws here in California
-A regulation in San Francisco makes it unlawful to use used underwear to wipe off cars in a car wash.
-Blythe: You are not permitted to wear cowboy boots unless you already own at least two cows.
-In 1838, the city of Los Angeles passed an ordinance requiring that a man obtain a license before serenading a woman.
-In California, animals are banned from mating publicly within 1,500 feet of a tavern, school, or place of worship.
-In Los Angeles a man is legally entitled to beat his wife with a leather belt or strap, but the belt can't be wider than 2 inches, unless he has his wife's consent to beat her with a wider strap. Consent should be given prior to the event, as is carefully stipulated.
-In Los Angeles, you cannot bathe two babies in the same tub at the same time.
-Pasadena: It is illegal for a secretary to be alone in a room with her boss.
-The Chico, California, City Council enacted a ban on nuclear weapons, setting a $500 fine for anyone detonating one within city limits.
-The city of San Francisco holds a copyright on the name "San Francisco." It is illegal to manufacture any item with the name without first getting permission from the city. Since the Supreme Court upheld the copyright, San Francisco has had an annual $300 million surplus every year.
-The Santa Monica, Calif., City Council recently proposed that men be allowed to use women's public restrooms when there's a line of three or more at the mens' room, and vice versa.

Hmm, I wonder how that plays over (yeah, yeah, yeah...) with Scott McKenzie?

When I was attending the U of Arizona a few years back we had a discussion in a PoliSci class regarding some archaic Arizona laws, most of them sex based (hey, we were in college...and we found we were all criminals)
In the State of Arizona (as of 2001 at least) :
-It is illegal to have sex in any position except the Missionary position
-Fellatio is considered sodomy, and subject to the same fines/penalties
-In Maricopa county, any structure housing more than 3 females was forced to be classified as a house of ill fame (to this day, at Arizona State, while there are sororities, there are no sorority houses because of this law)
-It is illegal for a man and woman to co-habitate unless they are legally related, either by blood or by marriage
-Regardless of location or position, it is illegal for a man and woman to engage in any form of sexual contact without being married first
All I can say from my time at the U of A is that it's a good thing the cops were too busy with other things...we all would have been locked up
This reminds me of a French law, that says that anyone who clears the road from a tree that has fallen over the road, becomes the owner of that tree. How big is the roadkill in WV? Or do they have very narrow roads?
How can anyone not fly, when we live at a time when we can fly?

Now since neither of us has actually SEEN the law(unless you have), I'm sure we will never know for sure. However, according to snopes.com. That isnt true... http://www.snopes.com/college/halls/brothel.asp
My ex goes to ASU and is an Alpha Phi and she heard the same thing and told me about it our freshman year. Except the number was 6 women per house.

In many states, counties and cities, you have all kind of weird rules as to the sale of alcohol, especially in Utah. Many states restrict alcoholic beverage sales on Sundays, so one has to stock up on Saturday.
Many states and localities have 'blue laws' that mean that most stores and businesses have to be closed on Sundays. That includes Bergen County, New Jersey, (where I live) which has several major regional shopping malls and big stores that cannot be open on Sundays.
In New Jersey, if you are ever convicted of DWI, you can never get personalized or special license plates.

Minnesota has a few good ones on the book. As the first poster in this thread, I will actually post the law, rather than the "story":

“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, an
