As California is where I currently reside, I pay attention to the stupidity of the state. Just a few days ago, I walked into my local market to
purchase a few items. They have a self-checkout system which I often utilize. Well, when I came up to it, I noticed a peculiar sign hanging on the
machine that I hadn't normally seen before. It said, in large font and bold text: "AS OF JANUARY 1, 2012, A CHANGE IN STATE LAW PROHIBITS THE
PURCHASING OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES AT SELF-CHECKOUT STATIONS." Now, in all honesty, I realize this isn't a big deal. If I have to go to the regular
lanes, so be it. The point is that this is totally unnecessary and even bizarre. What does this aim to accomplish, besides yet again limiting
people's ability to make decisions for themselves? And what does this say about our legislators? That, instead of working on fixing the state,
they're fooling around and passing stupid laws like this?
Tell me, ATS, are there any laws in your state that are comparably stupid?
