Did you know that:
Florida law requires sheriffs to live within two miles of the county seat close enough to get there quickly by horse. The rule is long since obsolete, but like scores of other old laws sometimes dating back a century or more, it remains on the books.

I'd rather they left the old laws alone and quit passing the horrible new ones. I think our Legislature would be of more use and less damaging if they just sat quietly for each session and read a book-no talking, no deal making, nothing. Just sit there and do crossword puzzles or whatever for eight hours a day.

It’s illegal to have sex with another person in Florida

Well, well, boys and girls… this is the big one. Since the term lascivious is a subjective adjective, ANY sexual conduct can technically be interpreted as lascivious. Therefor, it is by law, illegal to have sex with another person in Florida even with your husband or wife…
800.02 Unnatural and lascivious act.
A person who commits any unnatural and lascivious act with another person commits a misdemeanor of the second degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083. A mother’s breastfeeding of her baby does not under any circumstance violate this section.




When having sex, only the missionary position is legal. (admission they do know people break the law)

it is also against the law to have sex in the same room or to allow a child to view a sex act it is considered Child molestation and you have to register as a Child molester ( I happen to agree with this one ) yes it can be and is enforced

I say lets keep all the laws maybe being a little more specific or maybe adding more to them. These laws were sadly made for a reason.

Oral sex is illegal also Ii omitted it simply because I don' think it is a dumb law.


Here are some really dumb laws.
Alabama
Children of incestuous couples are deemed legitimate.
Incestuous marriages are legal.
No persons may sell "blow-out nuts". ( I have not a clue )
Slavery is still legal in Decatur, Alabama.

Arizona
A man can legally beat his wife, but not more than once a month.

Arkansas
A man can legally beat his wife, but not more than once a month.

California
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. (Like a womans says sure give me more give more) What ever

Illinois
An Illinois state law requires that a man's female companion shall call him "master" while out on a date. The law does not apply to married couples.

Champaign: One may not pee in his neighbor's mouth.
(Not that I don't agree just WHY)

Massachusetts
All men must carry a rifle to church on Sunday.

Michigan
A Michigan law states that a wife's hair legally belongs to her husband.
A woman isn't allowed to cut her own hair without her husband's permission.

Minnesota
A woman isn't allowed to cut her own hair without her husband's permission


Montana
It is a felony for a wife to open her husband's mail.
Seven or more Indians are considered a raiding or war party and it is legal to shoot them.

New York
A fine of $25 can be levied for flirting. This old law specifically prohibits men from turning around on any city street and looking "at a woman in that way." A second conviction for a crime of this magnitude calls for the violating male to be forced to wear a "pair of horse-blinders" wherever and whenever he goes outside for a stroll.

A license must be purchased before hanging clothes on a clothesline

South Dakota
If there are more than 5 Native Americans on your property you may shoot them.


Texas
A city ordinance states that a person cannot go barefoot without first obtaining a special five-dollar permit.
In Texas it's legal for a chicken to have sex with you, but it's illegal to reciprocate. (I'm sure that chicken was making the moves own these guys O MY) In Florida that is called a cold shower if it turned you on ok ok atleast in my opinion

You can be legally married by publicly introducing a person as your husband or wife 3 times.

Utah
In Utah when a person reaches the age of 50, he/she can then marry their cousin.
No woman may have sex with a man while riding in an ambulance within the boundaries of Tremonton, Utah. If caught, the woman can be charged with a sexual misdemeanor and "her name is to be published in the local newspaper." The man isn't charged nor is his name revealed.

Vermont
In Vermont, women must obtain written permission from their husbands to wear false teeth.


These are a few at a glimpse Florida don't look to bad if we can get the law to uphold the law and add a few more to some of the laws.
