Must-Read: Laws You’re Definitely Breaking
We spend a lot of time in this section telling about ways that you can help get better in a variety of ways. Sometimes this means becoming a better man through how you date, and other times it’s how you focus on work or how you work-out. Those are usually the main things we focus on, which is too bad because there’s a whole lot of other things out there. One way: Knowing weird facts that other people don’t know. We don’t seem to focus on that kind of trivia too, too much here. And for no real reason. There’s no good excuse on our part. So, today, we’re going to try to fix that by offering something that is simply just about useless knowledge.
Which is why today we’re heading over to AskMen.com where they have a list of 10 laws that everyone breaks. What are they talking about when they deliver such a message? Oh, something like this:
Owning a Sharpie
Sharpies are a staple of every office supply closet. Everyone’s used a Sharpie, whether to label a moving box, make an impromptu sign, or just because they love that one-of-a-kind smell. Pretty innocuous right?
As far as the government’s concerned, that Sharpie in your hand is a graffiti tool and you don’t want to get caught with one in a public place. And whatever you do, don’t sell or give a Sharpie to a minor, cause they’re not allowed to have one under any circumstances. We know this sounds like someone’s idea of a joke, but the 13-year-old Oklahoma student who was arrested for having a Sharpie at school in 2010 probably wasn’t laughing when the cops took him to a juvenile detention facility for accidentally marking up his desk when his Sharpie bled through the paper he was writing on.
Weird, right? Head on over to the link above, and then get on out to the bar or wherever it is you’re thinking about heading to and impress all of your friends.
