Normally I don’t patronize Readers’ Digest. My grand mother had a cardboard box filled with them that I used to read when I was visiting her place when very young and was up late at night, as I nearly invariably was. This was before computers.
Anyway, I found a posting by “RD” that listed what it considered stupid laws from the 50 states. These are fodder for satire everywhere and even some websites (I won’t link to them because they are usually trash) pretend to collect them.
In the United States, all citizens/permanent residents get issued a Social Security number (SSN) for tax purposes and other questionable non-reasons. Since this is a very important number, it is generally afforded significant protection.1
