If a motorcycle crashes into a car, no matter what, it is the car's fault and the owner goes to jail for (I think) 2days.

In Georgia all sex toys are banned.
In 1968 a Fulton-county resident was convicted under this law. This is despite the fact that the Fulton-County jury publicly stated that the law was "archaic" and noted such gadgets can have therapeutic value.

We have the same law here in my college town. we can't have sorority houses of because of some old lady calling it a brothel back in the day and getting the law passed. we actually just had a big ordeal where some girls got kicked out of their house, because of the law, because some of their neighbors complained about them parking on the street. kns1190
