    In New York it’s legal to kill a pedophile if the pedophile is willing to rat out Bill or the Royal Family.

  6. That’s why no one takes America fully seriously. Weirdo country.

    • Most, if not all countries have outdated laws that no one polices. Not really a priority to have them removed.

    • Would be interesting to find out the history of why these weird laws were passed though. There’s an idea for a youtube channel for someone.

    • Margarine color was restricted long ago by the dairy and butter industry. Margarine was naturally white and manufacturers added yellow dye to it to make it look more like butter but dairy lobbied against it because margarine was cheaper.

      Oddly, all cheese is naturally fairly white and dyed with annatto (achiote) to make it yellow which is the same seed used to make margarine look better. Achiote seeds can be found in Latin American markets but I’ve never seen them in US grocery stores.

    • American food is 99% fake. Like America.

    • lol, margarine originally was a French invention. Fake food for a fake population.

    • how is it fake when it is called margarine and not butter? eurobashing without a brain. fake brain.

    • “how is it fake when it is called margarine and not butter?”

      Margarine is made from vegetable oils, butter is made from animal oils. Not fake per se, but the marketing in the 70’s tried to make margarine to be like butter, thus “faking” it, much like the make-up industry in this era.

      Like american politics. Crooks in the White House pretending to do make America great again. Watching TV, molesting women, twittering, making own family rich on taxpayer money.

    • @Anonymouse: But of course, these laws make a LOT of sense.

      In England and Scotland, it is illegal to handle a salmon in suspicious circumstances

      In Belgium, girls must have written permission from their fathers to wear a mini skirt that is more than 4 inch above the knee.

  7. Be cruel to gruel November 8, 2019

    That is some hideous chunky peasoup that woman is eating. Looks more like porridge. I doubt it would be possible to slurp that even in New Jersey.

  12. “In Finland, it is illegal to play music in a cab.” Not true, you just have to pay the copyrights feed, which is a certain amount in a month/year.
