      @Kasia I've seen the fire hydrant video too. I guess you're right, technically one could tie his pet elephant to it, but then again, is an elephant not kinda a fire hydrant...
      I think dangerous animals could mean anything. A rabbit with myxomatosis is technically also dangerous so specification seems ok to me, what i don't really understand is the elephant. To my knowledge elephants never lived in Florida... Unless there was some circus that tied there elephants to random parking meters.

    • Kasia
      Kasia 29 dias atrás +2

      @Pepijn That would suggest that it is perfectly legal to tie an elephant to a fire hydrant, when you put them side by side. I can kinda understand the fire hydrant thing, though. I've seen photos where firefighters broke windows in a car parking directly in front of a fire hydrant, to pull the hose(?) through it. The car owner was also fined for blocking the way. In a video, a firefighter explained/showed that had they ran it over, under or around the car, there is a risk of it bending in a way that would block/slow down the water flaw and that is crucial to putting out fire.
      What I don't understand is why they didn't just use "(dangerous) animals" in those lawmakings. I mean you could technically tie a crocodile to a flagpole, no?

    As funny as the video is, it shows a serious issue with our legal system: It's easy to make laws but it's hard to ever abolish them again as nobody seems to care to take themselves the time to go over old laws, receck if they are meaningful and requests abolishment if they are not. IMHO all laws should have an expiration date and unless they are renewed before that date is hit, they should automatically lose validity. And there should be an upper limit how far in the future that date may be, e.g. at most 20 years.

    • Skadoof
      Skadoof 10 meses atrás

      @CakeEatingPirate This I whole-heartedly agree with. Did you know that until April, they hadn’t reviewed the law on allowing 16 year olds to purchase lottery tickets since 1994? Also, until 2021, there was absolutely no law that prevented economic abuse (domestic abuse in the form of financial manipulation) between married couples. I’m 100% for a government that reviews laws instead of letting them gather dust so that people may exploit the corruption in this country.

    • CakeEatingPirate
      CakeEatingPirate 10 meses atrás +1

      @Skadoof ​ I'm not saying alter the laws every decade, I just expect governments to review laws every decade

    • Skadoof
      Skadoof 10 meses atrás +1

      @CakeEatingPirate but this is already an issue. Say for example road laws. If these were altered every decade, it would then mean that road users would have to also research these new laws as well. Don't get me wrong, it's obvious that drivers are expected to renew their driving licenses occasionally, but to revise an entire set of laws seems a bit trickier than our current predicament…

    • CakeEatingPirate
      CakeEatingPirate 10 meses atrás +3

      @Max Lennon, you do provide a fair argument but renewing laws has a bunch of problems with it. mainly the fact that they are doomed to forget to renew important laws. I feel like they should, at least once a decade, be legally obliged to check the laws and make sure they are up to date. that way they have plenty of time to form a schedule around the legal requirement and if they don't then they get penalized.

    • Max Lennon
      Max Lennon 10 meses atrás +3

      @CakeEatingPirate I consider your point about archaic laws that go unenforced to actually be an argument in favor of what Xcoder112 is saying. When the legal system becomes so complicated that no one keeps track of all the laws, and the discretion lies at the point of enforcement, it makes it very easy to selectively prosecute people you don't like. Also, that type of system makes it nearly impossible to win a criminal case without expensive counsel, which is incredibly unequitable for poor people.

    The only logical explanation (Tho of course only helping the well off) I can come up with for it being illigal to shake a door mat at a certain hour is that it was to stop rich people being covered in dust as they went out, when their servents or the servents of other houses shook or beat out their mats.
    I don't know, someone else may have a better explanation
    Edit: I've live here for 16 years or should I say all my life and I have never heard of some of these, there accualy quite funny.

      Jeff Anos atrás

      There's a couple other possivle explanations, based on somewhat similar laws I've seen in the past.
      One was something to do with dumping cleaning water outside after a certain hour. That was put in place to indirectly protect restaurant workers 1t0 years ago or so, as they'd have to clean up as their last task, and then dump the water. Forbid the dumping agter a certain hour made sure their shifts endes at that time at the latest. Doormats could be similar.
      The other was also from a few decades ago concerning snow cleanup. It forbade sweeping snow from driveways/porches etc. After a certain time, apparently because the city provided official snow clearing of many sidewalks/footpaths and such, and people would just shovel the snow of their proches and driveways onto the sidewalk after the city crews had come through.

    There used to be a law (British but brought over to Australia) which forbad wearing carpet slippers in public. Apparently in the days when hobnail boots were normal, a person wearing slippers was probably a burglar.

    It’s a little shocking, at least to me, what some of these penalties were when the laws were put in place. A £500 fine in the mid 1800’s would have been a shitload of money for the average person.

      @schrodingers cat Honestly fuvk of I know why it was made. Just spit balled an idea.
      Although I feels it's unlikely that its purpose was so poor people couldn't drink. Subjugation of poor was rarely as bad as we think. Wars aren't cheap especially civil wars and uprising.

      @Xan penguin its from 1872 it wasn't even necessarily fights it might have just been the idea of the lower classes being allowed to drink.
