its Illegal to walk on RR tracks in the US (i think) i was told to get of them today by the man XD

It's considered trespassing because they're private property. I think it's completely legal over public waterways, but at your own risk.

In North Carolina it's illegal to have elephants plow cotton fields.
In Missouri it's illegal to get elephants drunk.
And in Florida if you tie an elephant to a parking meter, you have to pay for it the way you would a normal car. It's illegal to have sex with a porcupine in Florida. Also in Florida men are not allowed to be seen in public in a strapless dress.
I fully support that last one...

Many American states have banned gay marriage.

They want everyone to be the same. Honestly, do you ever go through a post before sending it in?

What if I possess a bull? Would that change anything? Why don't you check the weirdest laws, written in the Hammurabi's Code?

I wouldn't quite call it a law, but it's against regulations here to have a lightsaber duel on the quad.  Funny story, actually.

There was a thunderstorm going on, and these two guys were just going at it out on top of Rickover Circle. Flips, spins, everything. The duty master-at-arms didn't want them to be injured or anything, so he went out in a golf cart to try to bring them back in. On trying to persuade them to do so, he was told to go do inappropriate things to his mother for trying to keep them from practicing their religion (sure enough, they had Jedi stamped on their ID tags), and they just kept fighting. The MA wasn't happy about this for obvious reasons, and even less happy about having to get out in the rain to attempt to drag them in by force. Long story short, he was hit in the face, fell over, bonked his noggin, and now we can't have nice things.
