3. It is illegal to take more than three sips of beer at a time while standing in LeFors
4. You can be legally married by publically introducing a person as your husband or wife 3 times. 5. It is illegal to drive without windshield wipers. You don't need a windshield, but you must have the wipers.

13. In Texas, no one other than a registered pharmacist may sell condoms or other kinds of contraceptives “on the street or other public places.” Not even Physicians!
