Recently, I've been doing research for a paper (topic not important to this conversation) and I came across this in one of my sources.

See also supra note 5 (giving an over\\'iew of which states have anti-bullying laws, which states have included cyberbullying, electronic harassment, criminal sanctions, or school sanctions in their laws, and which states require additional school policies)"


From the context in which it was used and the singular indentation and "91:" as far as I can tell, this is a SINGLE citation. At first I simply thought it was a jumble of them, but after looking it over it's not. I can't even imagine citing this and I've never seen anything even half this length before.

What ridiculous things have you come across? From wacky, to weird, to insane, from funny and pathetic alike, I think it would be fun to share some of these things.

I think that all 50 of the United States are mentioned in your citation, Kasic, and that it is something to do with the law being different in all 50 of them, I have better things to do than check. It's like the terms and conditions I agreed to when I signed up to Google, a really, really difficult read, and, sadly, some of the posts in this community.

Rational equations are ridiculous. I've used everything I learned in Calc so far except rational equations in a real environment.

Last year a big storm hit my area, making some trees fall down and the power go out. There was a sign that was a bit messed up as well...

Look! Person falling down over here! Ah it's ridiculous!

Near my school there is a sign that says the speed limit is 1100.Some prankers wrote 1 and 0.It was originally 10 km/h,but works for me.
