    Five loopy laws and where they come from:


    Pacific Grove, California- It causes a misdemeanor if you kill or threaten a butterfly

    Ventura County, California- Cats or dogs can't have sex without a permit.

    Sarasota, Florida- It is illegal to wear swimwear while singing a public place.

    Chicago, Illinois- A hat pin is considered a concealed weapon.

    Michigan- It is illegal for a woman to cut her hair without her husband's consent.

    .
    This is good to know as this is where I live and since Sarasota has a lot of nice beaches, I'm sure there are a LOT of people that violate this law daily.

    It should be illegal for someone to sing badly in a public place while wearing a bad bathing suit!

    I LOVE Martinelli's Apple Juice and hate scotch. I knew I liked Dean Martin.

    I was shocked to hear this many sharks are killed each year. I didnt think there were that many to begin with. Scientists also beleive that 50-80% of shark species are gone already. The shark as an 'apex predator', can effect the whole ocean food chain from its position at the top. So we are really the shark's worst nightmare and predator.
