ChaCha fail

I’m all for user-generated content, Web 2.0 and all that, but there are signs that interactive question and answer site ChaCha is not always being used in the manner intended.

In response to the (perfectly reasonable) question “What is the weirdest law in Scotland?“, an anonymous contributor has suggested that, in Aberdeen, “Any man owning more than 12 sheep must prove that he is not a pimp!” – which is not at all helpful.

Come to think about it – what is the weirdest law in Scotland?  Any thoughts?

    This is the most amusing thing I’ve heard in a while.

    The weirdest law, in my opinion, would have to be the chain of equity case law which emerged following Lloyds Bank Ltd v Bundy http://cw.routledge.com/textbooks/9780415481373/cases12.asp) and subsequent integration with Scots Law following Barclays Bank v O'Brien and Smith v Bank of Scotland.

    Or perhaps the doctrine of breach of the peace.

    Certainly nothing quite as extravagant as the States: http://www.dumblaws.com/

  3. Thats the nature of social medai i am affraid, you invite comments and inevitably you will get the odd daft one, nevertheless thay can add to the conversaion and add some humor. I found this wierd Scottish law: In scotland you can be proven guilty with not enough evidence to convict. The crime still goes on your permanent record.
