Why are there so many weird laws in Missouri?
Hundreds of wacky, obsolete laws still exist all across the country — not just in Missouri. And it begs the question: why don’t more states remove them? Well, if you have any experience with the legal system, you know that all legal issues take time energy, resources, and paperwork. Although every state has at least one designated official who edits laws, only nine states maintain a full law revision commission… and Missouri is not one of them. Paperwork, bureaucracy, and resources make the process of changing or revoking laws a huge legal headache. Sometimes, it’s just easier to let things ride… just don’t get caught racing any stage coaches down Missouri’s Rollins Street!
What are some unique things about living in Missouri?
Living in Missouri is definitely its own experience. In rural areas, there are some pretty gnarly traffic jams caused by farm equipment; it’s just something we get used to! Missourians love a good river float in the summer. If you have no idea what that is, a river float takes place on an inner tube; we just let Missouri’s lazy rivers guide and dictate our speed and direction. We love toasted ravioli; this is an only-in-Missouri delicacy wherein raviolis are breaded and fried… it’s delightful! Another food quirk: we have our own, St. Louis-style pizza that sets itself apart by being made with Provel cheese, a combination of provolone, cheddar, and Swiss. Delicious! Finally, our weather here is insane, and it’s not usual to experience all four seasons during the span of a week!
