Electric car maker Tesla can’t sell their cars in Texas unless sold through a third party. Even if you buy a Tesla car from a third party, you won’t get the state-sponsored alternative fuel incentive of $25, 000! Well, that is not the last of it; now Texas lawmakers are mulling to bring in a law which will prevent Tesla from servicing their cars in the state.
Did you think it weird? Well, wait till you read more.
Reasonable notice to the victim
It is mandatory in Texas for criminals to issue a warning orally or written to their intended victims 24 hours prior to committing the crime along with a brief explanation of the proposed crime. The law is not clear on whether a murderer will be tried for not issuing the warning or for murder. In order to be on the safer side of the law, is it possible for an offender to issue the warning through a court of law? There are no cited instances to this effect.
Be sure to face the wrath of law if you shoot a buffalo from the second story of a hotel. If you are a first-time visitor to Texas make sure that your loved ones know where to find you, for instance, using a database such as PrisonFinder, in case you happened to be on the wrong side of the law. It is an entirely different matter altogether if the enforcement agencies fail to prove in a court of law that you indeed did shoot the buffalo from the second story.
Airplanes on the beach
Be sure to carry your lawyer’s contact details in case you decide to land an airplane on the beach because it is illegal and you may land in one of the numerous prisons in Texas. A reliable Prison Finder website can be handy to your friends if you went missing all of a sudden in Texas. If a beach plane enters from the sea, can it be termed as landing is a very interesting question.
It is forbidden in Texas to sell your eyes. We hope that you are not traveling to Texas with the intention of selling your eyes. We are not sure as to what Texan statues say about selling other organs or blood. Whatever may the law stands for, it is always better to have a lawyer at hand while in Texas.
Thy neighbor’s cows
It is absolutely against the rule of law to milk another person’s cows in Texas. So, it should be considered as fair enough warning to first-time visitors not to attempt to milk cows while you are in Texas. It is rather funny to imagine “anti milking vigilantes” operating in the wee hours keeping a keen eye on cows’ udders.
Ownership of dildos
You are not allowed to own more than six dildos while in Texas as this amounts to ownership and promotion of a sex toy which again is an offense. The law was passed in 1973. How is one able to be in possession of a dildo when it is illegal to sell one is a different law point.
There are no clear records in the city prisons about the statistics of prisoners who were lodged there for this particular offense.
Pharmacists in Texas are prohibited from becoming members of the communist party. Never knew that there were communists in Texas. So, if a person was already a member of the communist party before becoming a pharmacist, will he or she be arrested?
Enraging news for the feminists; husbands can beat wives using an instrument smaller than his thumb. Scary, isn’t it? Wait before laughing this off. In many martial arts films, experts have used smaller objects to kill.
Horses and cattle thieves
If you are in the city of Temple in Texas, you may ride a horse in the saloon unlike other parts of Texas where it is forbidden to ride a horse in the saloon. But you will be arrested on the spot if you ride a horse and buggy through the town square.
Cattle thieves are to be hanged instantly. We are sure that no one actually goes to Texas with the intention of stealing, let alone a cow or a bull. In case you get an uncontrollable urge to steal cattle, first consult a reliable law firm working out of Texas.
The above are only nine archaic laws that Texas could have done without. There are many dumber laws in Texas which are really crazy and hilarious and citizens as well as lawmakers should ensure that the city prisons do not become overcrowded due to first-time visitors being unaware of these.
But the reality is that no one cares much about the implications of outdated laws that are still prevalent.
