cannibalism is frowned upon in Idaho

Five Thoughts

1. Another reason I hate dark windows on vehicles is because… when the person in front of me is driving badly and I finally pull up next to them and turn to look, I miss out seeing what stupid looks like.

2. I’ve noticed that in the movies/TV, Vikings and the gods usually have a proper British accent.

3. I like James Franco, he’s okay.  To me, he always looks stoned.  Whether he’s happy or angry or sad, he looks stoned.  And what’s with that cheesy mustache?

Five State Laws (I found these on the internet, of course.)

1 In Oregon, leaving a container of urine or fecal matter on the side of the road is a Class A misdemeanor. And you can't throw it from the vehicle either.

2 In Missouri, if any bull or ram over the age of 1 year old runs rampant for more than three days, any person may castrate the animal without assuming liability for damage. Three town residents must attest in writing that the animal is loose, and its owner must fail to reclaim or confine the beast after notice is given.

3. In Idaho, cannibalism is strictly prohibited and punishable by up to 14 years in prison. But it's okay to "willfully ingest the flesh or blood of a human being" in life-or-death situations, if it's the only apparent means of survival.

The only state to declare cannibalism illegal, Idaho erected the ban in 1990 as a reaction to spreading fear that eating humans would pop-up in ritualized practices.
