yea- Alabama is not a... hub of industry and technology.
And weirdly, some like it that way.
*shrugs*
But I'm sure every state in the US has them.

I've got a book at home with them all in, and some international ones too.

For example, in the English town of Chester (near the Welsh border) it's still legal to kill a Welshman, as long as it is with a longbow and after midnight.

I think in some state it is illegal to chase moths in the vicinity of a lamp post, it is illegal to tie an alligator to a hydrant, and it's not allowed to lead a camel caravan through the streets after 10 PM. Some of these are probably horribly garbled in my memory, and I don't think it's the same state.
