Topic: stupid things america does


why in banks do they chain a pen to the desk, but leave the vault door open?

why do people go to McDonalds and order 2 big mac, 2 large fries, and a diet coke?

why do we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway?

why is a package taken in a car called a shipment and a package taken in a ship called cargo?

feel free to post.

Get these funky laws:

You have to be 18 to play pinball in Nashville, Tennessee.
You can't wake up a sleeping bear to take it's picture in Alaska.
You can't sleep on a refrigerator outdoors in Oklahoma.
You can't fish from the back of a camel in Idaho.
You can't ride a bicycle in a swimming pool in one city in California.

And, as Johnny Cash said, "You can't roller skate in a buffalo herd."

When those laws were made they actually had a reason for them to be passed. Im sure a few of them were made in honor of Darwin winners . I can imagine some one going "Waky waky Mr. *ROAR* *RIP* MY FACE..."
