Because space is an area without defined boundaries, there are many questions about legal jurisdiction on spacecraft orbiting Earth and other celestial bodies. Space-faring nations have agreed to a variety of policies and treaties that concern activities in space exploration.

Maritime law governs maritime questions and offenses. It's a body of both domestic law governing maritime activities, and private international law governing the relationships between private entities that operate vessels on the oceans.

It deals with matters including marine commerce, marine navigation, marine salvaging, shipping, sailors, and the transportation of passengers and goods by sea. Maritime law can be confusing, but interesting.

You wouldn't think that an author can posthumously write a book, would you? Of course not, but it did place into motion the copyright laws of this country and the modern evolution of public domain works.

We're all familiar with the term potluck; very few however are aware that it's illegal to have one outside the workplace in Arizona. "Who cares? So is marijuana," said Roger Farris, who lives at Golden Acres Mobile Home Park. He gave us the grand tour of the area where potlucks are thrown quite regularly. "I've never lost one person in here on a potluck," Farris said.

Our friends in Texas seem to place the Bible high on the priority list when inflicting punishment. I wonder if the judge would order this sentence if the accused was not Christian.

A man arrested on a trespassing charge probably didn't make a good first impression on a judge when he greeted him with a profane remark.

"How you doin' a--hole?" David Riffle asked Broward County Judge John Hurley in bond court Wednesday morning.

Okay, I'm pretty tired of the online fora. It's not going to change anyone's mind (though some desperately need it) but here is the rule book. Please read it sometime. It's not difficult language, nor is this.

This is not what you think it is. This has nothing to do with Michael Brown, Eric Garner, or Tamir Rice. Though a 2004 tragedy in Kenosha, WI meant a father had lost his son, the story turns out to be a very good read.

Whatever the reasoning, it's now illegal to wear your pants below your butt in Louisiana. Since the baggy pants culture seems to span more than mere racial lines, I'm just going to assume that LA lawmakers got tired of looking at teenboy ass.
