Life is full of many little annoyances. But unfortunately, you can’t put your co-worker in jail for chewing their gum too loudly. Or your neighbor who never, ever cuts their grass. Or even your husband who can’t load the dishwasher correctly. Maybe he needs to spend just a little bit of time in the slammer until he understands why cups on the top shelf…ok, maybe this is getting out of hand.
Everyone has those things that drive them absolutely crazy, whether they are actually bad and dangerous, or just very irritating, but they aren’t actually illegal. But what if you could change that? What would you make illegal if you had the power to outlaw anything? What would you make illegal?

“Balloon releases. All you’re doing is littering. It’s not like those balloons go up into space and then disappear. They eventually pop, float back down to earth, and usually end up in oceans or rivers.” –Pots_And_Pans

According to the US Fish and Wildlife Service, “Birds, turtles, and other animals commonly mistake balloons for food, which can harm or even kill them.” So hold onto your balloons and consider a nice air horn celebration instead.
