Worlds crappest law?Let's hear it if you've got a dumber one.

In Australia,you can lose your house...for,get this..not voting.

Here's the chain of events that happen to ppl every election.

You move house and neglect to inform the electoral commision.
You don't vote in the following election.
You don't recieve the $20 fine because it's sent to the old address.
The gumbyment revokes your driving licence because you didn't pay the fine.You have no idea this has happened.
You arse-end a mercedes.
Your insurance company laughs and tells you to take a second mortgage.

Aside from this happening to ppl every election,the very idea of compulsory voting is just the single most fubar idea in the history of multiple-celled organisms.

Compulsory voting,the dumbest law in the history of the universe.
