Funny stuff! I wonder how the laws are actually written--if they really mention the martial arts or if they apply to exercising and would be interpreted to include the martial arts.

Hey, wouldn't these be considered discrimination?

Am I going to be forced to wear my gi around, to identify myself as a martial artist, or just wear the scarlet "MA" on my chest?

Heh....yeah. Weird laws.

And how exactly do they define an "ugly horse"? Isn't beauty in the eye of the beholder?

What if I consider myself a martial artist, but my sensei disagrees? What if I only copy the moves I see on my son's Power Ranger's videos? Am I a martial artist then?

Oh, man.....interpretations....;)

Yeah, I know.....all in fun and all that.....but it's *always* fun until someone's eye gets poked out......

:D

Peace--

Those laws are just too funny..Are you sure they are real? If they are what a waste of our taxes.

To harpoon a whale, in OKLAHOMA! :confused:

In Dallas, one may only cross an intersection after first firing your
rifle in the air.

In North Carolina, you may only drive your car if you don't scare
horses with it.

I think I saw something on this once. I think this law came about because, in the early days of automobiles, they wanted to make sure that no one got into wrecks at intersections. You had to stop at the intersection, look all directions, honk your horn a couple of times, and shoot either a rifle or a shotgun up into the air in the directions of the "crossing" road (once to the left, once to the right) before proceeding. The theory was that all that racket ought to let anyone else know that you were there.

Good thing that law is still on the books, huh?

:confused:
