The LAW (read now!)

The noble Order of the Knights of Jubal traces its origins back to the Year Two Thousand A.D., when a group of distinguished persons of good and true character, founded the order to promote chivalry and honour. The order takes its name from our leader, Alexander Jubal McRae, who on two (so far) occasions has been seriously injured, in one case fatally, defending an innocent woman from attackers.

Oy, what's so hypocritical about the Ventrue, eh? At least they're not the Tremere...

I found this while looking through the North Carolina criminal code: http://www.ncga.state.nc.us/Statutes/Ge ... 4-177.html

In my hometown of Schererville, Indiana, it is illegal to drive around without a shotgun mounted on your dashboard.

In Chicago, it is illegal to drive at night without someone walking 50 feet infront of the car with a lantern.

Both of these laws are still "in the books," but niether are enforced.

But the Assamites have Thaumaturgical prowess as well, and they're not schmucks. Come to think of it, the Setites have a good bit on their side in Thaum as well, not to mention some Ravnos. And Humanity is absolute, I'm afraid. Killing is killing, whether in self-defense or an evil being or whatnot.


As for laws...it's odd how things remain on the books so long, yet no one enforces them. Until someone brings 'em up, they really can't be change.

Heh... where I'm from we have this law that Jewelers and Smiths of Valuable Metals may "openly and unhindered" carry swords for self-defence. Neat law, ain't it?

And as for some info on me, I'm from the grand Kingdom of Denmark (yeah, we're almost SEVEN million people living there, FEAR us! hehe...) I'm 20 summers of age and recently began the study of the wonderful world of prehistoric archaeology.
I more or less just listen to what music I think sounds good, I hate putting something as supposedly free as art into genres and stalls, so I won't get into that. I don't talk to my shoes, because I'm usually too busy being exhausted by homework or spending quality time with my 'pack'.
Anything else people wanna know, just ask. ^_^

Ogredude wrote:the "no gum chewing in public" law is an actual law in Singapore which IS enforced ($250 fine I believe).

Some other laws that I know of from Singapore:

Failure to flush a public lavatory - $250 fine
Littering (even dropping a small piece of paper) - $500 fine
Smoking in public - $250 fine

Singapore has pretty much an authoritarian government and very few freedoms. You'd have to pay me a *LOT* to live there.



I don't think Singapore is all that bad, as long as you don't break the law.

Of course the cops there carry submachine guns around with them, so I would be going well out of my way to stay within the law! hahaha




Hmm... Denmark you say? Sword, huh? Methinks I'll be moving there! hahaha
