Governing a big country is a tough job, and you are bound to be hated by half of the population you're ruling. Now, bear in mind, that the person on top, is also responsible for the laws, upon which, the whole democratic system is based. And laws are passed after voting of the Congress, sometimes public vote, and then an affirmation of the president. With these dumb laws, that we have compiled below, we're not sure, where common sense got lost.

Did you know, that there's a crazy law in Juneau, Alaska prohibiting you from bringing your pet flamingo into a barbershop? Or that in Tenessee you might be prosecuted for sharing your Netflix password? And if you're from Indiana that you are banned from catching a fish with your bare hands? It sure would be interesting to know, why these weirdest laws in the U.S. became laws in the first place.

Though most of these laws sound incredibly dumb now, once they've had, or still does have, a real pretense. For example, the New York law against people wearing masks in public places is to prevent a mass crime or a riot, since you don't know the assailant's identity undercover. And the Arizona one, about camel shooting prohibitions, stems from United States Camel Corps, an army experiment to use these animals for military forces. So there, as improbable as these laws might seem, they do have comprehensive explanations. Scroll down below for our list of weird rules in the U.S. and share if you know more of these!

The fact that this is actually a law is what disturbs me the most about this.

Ok this one makes some sense... but the fact that it is a law is disturbing... were people actually selling their kids at one point? (I'm sorry if that was a stupid question, I'm only fifteen)
