So the other day I stumble upon a video going over laws in different states. Some where wacky like it's illegal to eat fried chicken with a fork in Georgia (which I agree with but didn't think it needed to be a law) but some made sense when I gave it some thought like Ohio's law where if a dangerous animal (like what you see at a zoo) escapes you have to report it to the authorities. So it may me think what are some laws in Texas that we may may not have realized were actually laws?

#10 No shooting buffalo from the second story of a hotel

This is just bad hunting ethics and I don't think the WT would be to happy if you took out their mascot "Thunder"

American Buffalo.

#9 It's illegal to milk someone else's cow

You use to be fine of no more than $10 if caught. But now if you are caught this is a theft of personal property which is a class a misdemeanor.

#8 Texas is a common law marriage state

Which means  2 willing parties (who are over 18, unmarried and aren’t related) are legally married if they publicly announce they’re married 3 times.

#7 Dumpster diving is legal

Dumpster diving is legal in the state of Texas unless there is a city ordinance against it. Which leads me to #6

#6 No eating your neighbor’s garbage without permission

Eating your neighbor’s garbage without permission. If caught you will go down for trespassing and property theft.

#5 It's illegal to leave an unattended vehicle running

If caught you could be change with a class c misdemeanor.

#4 Giving a 24 hour notice

Those who are planning to commit a crime in Texas are required by law to provide their victims with 24 hours written or verbal notice.

#3 It's illegal to drive without windshield wipers

While you don’t legally need a windshield to drive a car in Texas, it is illegal to drive without windshield wipers.

#2 No feather dusting in public

It is against the law to use a feather duster to dust any Texas public building. It’s unclear whether it’s the feather duster or the act of dusting that’s illegal.

#1 No drinking while standing

In certain Texas cites it is illegal to take more than 3 drinks (sips or swallows) of a beer while standing up. It’s not completely clear why this became a law.
