99% sure my uncle lives in Toledo so nobody can throw a snake at him. He is petrified of them… “It’s illegal to fish for whales on Sunday” LAND. LOCKED. “The Ohio Driver’s Education Manual states that you must honk your horn whenever you pass another car” I talked to some old Ohioans (Hi Mom) and this was indeed correct, although not anymore. “In Akron, it’s illegal to post signs at swimming pools” I’m going to be honest, Akron is just weird.

QOTN: What are your best theories to explain these weird laws?
