There are strange laws everywhere, but some of them really take the cake if you will. Like this first law, for example.
You are not allowed to nod your head, tap your foot, or otherwise move your body to spend time with the music in a tavern, restaurant, or cafe.
If you are a hunter and you own a ferret, you cannot take the ferret out to help you hunt Apparently this was a problem for local lawmakers, hence the law. Strange, but really, which of these laws isn̵
If you are in the White Mountain National Forest and you see trash on the ground, don’t pick it up. And no, I’m not kidding. Do not rake, pick up litter, or take away rubbish on the beaches or make other changes there without permission. “Tending to the national forest without a permit” carries a US $ 150 fine. Why they don’t want the garbage and debris obviously picked up is a mystery to me, but now you know.
You are not allowed to sell the clothes you wear to pay a gambling debt. You know the saying about the shirt off your back? Well, New Hampshire put the kibosh on top.
It is considered objectionable to check into a hotel under a false or suspected name and is illegal in that state.
Don’t plan on getting a lot of work done on Sundays. Or have fun? According to the law, there cannot be any work or play on Sundays, just as that day is for the Lord. The law states: “No one shall, on the first day of the week commonly referred to as the Lord’s Day, carry out any work, business, or worldly calling work to disturb others, except for works of necessity and mercy making necessary repairs to mills and factories which could not be done otherwise without loss to employees; and on that day nobody is allowed to devote themselves to a game, game or sport. “
Another day-specific law states that on Sundays, citizens may not exonerate themselves by looking up. That said, if you do need to go to the bathroom, then definitely do it. But look straight ahead or down, you know on your phone that you’re 99% likely to see it anyway.
It is illegal to fetch seaweed from the beach at night. Some people call that dumbest law in New Hampshire. Why? Well, the law states that you can’t pick up the algae at night, which means it’s fine during the day. Apparently, the law was originally enacted in 1973 because “some people were pulling live stone weed and seaweed from the beach and rock and there were enforceability issues at night”.
All livestock that crosses national borders must be equipped with a device to collect their droppings.
Have you ever reused your milk containers to fill them with something else? Me too, but apparently in this state you can’t. New Hampshire law states that “Milk and dairy containers must not be used as containers for substances other than dairy products.”
No cheers from the exhaust pipes, yup, that’s a weird law too. Exhaust pipes are not specifically mentioned, but easily fall under the definition of “toxic fumes to cause a state of intoxication, euphoria, arousal, amusement, numb or dulled senses of the nervous system”.
In this state, adults and children cannot play bingo together on private campsites or in hotels. So if you are on a little vacation and it is raining it is better Table the games. Crazy, right? Representative James Webb suggested a change that would allow people to play together but forbid the chance to win anything, such as prizes.
If you want to put on a show, you need the elect’s permission. The law states: “No showman, tumbler, tightrope walker, ventriloquist or any other person may, for a fee, perform agility, horsemanship, manual dexterity, tightrope dance or tricks with cards or animals, wax figures, dolls or other shows or advertising for public competitions without a license from the chosen ones City. “
Not sure which of these laws is stranger. What do you think? Actually, that scratch it. The park punishing you for literally picking up trash is absolutely the strangest law imaginable.
