There are thousands of laws in the books to make sure everyone stays on the straight and narrow. While most of them make complete and total sense (speed limits, not stealing stuff from other people, or killing them, etc.), there are several that make no sense at all.

Dumb Laws in the State of Indiana

Some of them appear to be based on religious beliefs, while others seem to reflect perhaps a more civil time when people were expected to act more "proper" in public.
