I always thought people were a little slower in Arkansas. Is that why they mentioned the first four laws twice:)
"anyone who has been drinking is "sober" until he or she "cannot hold onto the ground." (I wonder, if they are holding onto the ground with their face--does it still count?)

Alaska is so common sense. I'm sure the law not to wake sleeping bears goes a long way toward upholding the law to keep emergencies down to a minimum.
