1. Pro petsitters have a hard time working in New York City.
2. Many cities and states regulate haircuts.
3. AirBnB is illegal in some places.
4. Wisconsin has some strange butter laws.
5. Billboards are illegal in Hawaii.
6. In Delaware, you legally can’t sell dog hair.
7. In Carmel, California, you’re not allowed to wear high heels.
The wearing of shoes with heels which measure more than two inches in height and less than one square inch of bearing surface upon the public streets and sidewalks of the City is prohibited, without the wearer’s first obtaining a permit for the wearing of such shoes. ”(Ord. 87 C.S. § 1, 1963; Code 1975 § 639.2)”
8. In Massachusetts, you can’t play part of the “Star-Spangled Banner.”
”Whoever plays, sings or renders the ”Star Spangled Banner” in any public place, theatre, motion picture hall, restaurant or cafe, or at any public entertainment, other than as a whole and separate composition or number, without embellishment or addition in the way of national or other melodies, or whoever plays, sings or renders the ”Star Spangled Banner”, or any part thereof, as dance music, as an exit march or as a part of a medley of any kind, shall be punished by a fine of not more than one hundred dollars.”
9. In Nevada, you can’t use x-rays to determine a person’s shoe size.
However, this law makes some sort of sense, since shoe-fitting fluoroscopes actually exist. From the 1920s to the 1970s, shoemakers used these “Pedoscopes” to fit customers for shoes. X-rays are a form of ionizing radiation, however, which means that they can potentially cause cancer in high doses. As such, Nevada’s legislators apparently decided to step in (pardon the pun).
