From South Carolina -
- Railroad companies may be held liable in some instances for scaring horses.
- A permit must be obtained to fire a missile
- A person must be eighteen years old to play a pinball machine
The above have links to prove their so called validity
Others that can't be proved
- It is a capital offense to inadvertently kill someone while attempting suicide.
- Every adult male must bring a rifle to church on Sunday in order to ward off Indian attacks.
- It is perfectly legal to beat your wife on the court house steps on Sundays.
- It is illegal to give or receive oral sex in South Carolina
- It is considered an offense to get a tattoo.
Alcohol is the anesthesia by which we endure the operation of life

I read a book about some of these laws, they can be really ridiculous! Most of them were made in the "olden" days when we weren't so enlightened and still ruled by religious convictions. The good news is that more and more these old and useless laws are being erased by the courts. There was a case the other day in Montana, I believe, where a canoist was arrested for cursing, because there's a 150 year old law that states it's illegal to curse in front of women and children. This canoist was canoing down the river when he cano overturned and he let out a string of curse words while a woman and her two kids just so happened to be standing by. The woman was so offended that she took him to court after finding about the law. He was convicted under the law but then an upper court overturned the ruling by declaring the law unconstitutional.
