We can all generally agree laws are there to protect us. After all, no one would enjoy being murdered, having their stuff stolen out of their car, or getting smacked around like professional wrestlers. Not all laws are great, though, and not everything is outlawed that should be. That's right. We're calling you out, people that won't get off their phone when ordering food in line.


Reddit user, u/JasonBeKillin, wanted your opinion on what should be against the law when they asked:

what's something you wish was illegal?

Opened comments to type exactly that answer. So infuriating.

Apparently the FBI and IRS are very interested in speaking with me...from their Nigerian office.

Wasting All That Digital Ink

All the spam mail in my mail box. I don't like that some of the most import documents in my life come via usps and in that same box is 5 different pieces of mail that are spam and 15 that are ads for sh-t I'd never buy.

"70% Off...$500..."

You know those ads on the internet that say there's a store clearance sale and everything is 70% off but when you follow the link the shirts are like $60,it's like "You mean to tell me the regular price for this shirt is $200?!"

That.

MLM businesses

Pyramid and Ponzi schemes are illegal, but MLMs have managed to slip through a loophole even though they're basically the same thing

We Have No Idea How To Handle It

Those mycleanpc.com scams.

It doesn't do anything to your computer at all but slow it down and do a fake scan. How can blatantly lying about your product be legal to advertise?

Lots of people confuse "illegal" with "can be stopped by current law enforcement techniques."

I'm so happy to know I'm not the only one who thought "Toddlers in Tiaras" was the most disturbing thing to ever be on television.

Ugh...The Worst

Bright a-- blue headlights, my night vision isn't great to begin with but once I have one of those

A: "Herp de derp look at how boss my truck is!" people or B: Fast and the Furious wannabees, with those f-cking things and they start reflecting off my mirrors and glasses I cant see sh-t.

What's your opinion on what should be outlawed? Let us know!

Laws should always protect the people, ALL the people!

Laws are amiable. We know this. They often change with the times, with enough revolution that is. Laws are there to protect and serve, however they can be too complex and just downright odd and often absurd.

Redditor u/AshSpergers wanted to discuss the rules from around the world that may not make the most sense by wondering.... What's a stupid law where you live?
