Every places has some sort of stupid laws. That is because some law makers in the history might screw up one thing or the other. One perfectly sane law at one time might be stupid in another time. That is how stupid laws are created.
Here are the collection of stupid laws of Alaska:
• A law in Fairbanks does not allow moose to have sex on city streets.
• Even though it is legal to hunt a bear, it is illegal to wake a bear and take a picture for photo opportunities.
• In Fairbanks it is considered an offense to feed alcoholic beverages to a moose.
• In Alaska it is illegal to whisper in someone’s ear while they are moose hunting.
• It is considered an offense to push a live moose out of a moving airplane.
• Kangaroos are not allowed in barber shops at any time.
• Moose may not be viewed from an airplane.
• State policy states that emergencies are held to a minimum and rarely found to exist.
• While it is legal to shoot bears, waking a sleeping bear for the purpose of taking a photograph is prohibited.
I read an article about chivalry and habits of some chivalrous men in a while ago. Yes these are habits, not consciously made. But, I have read somewhere that it takes about a month to form a new habit.
If you believe chivalry isn’t dead and men are not pigs and you love your girl and want her her respect and love, here are some five habits you can cultivate in yourself. These are the gestures to go an extra mile to please your girl. Yes they are old-fashioned, but they still work like charms. Those who have such habits are the the gentleman they talk about in books and movies. And, you can be one of the real one.
1. Flowers, surprise the girls with flowers
How cliché it may sound, flower still has its charm on girls. Every losers, cheater knows to gift a flower on the Valentine’s Day but, only a rare gentleman picks a bouquet to surprise his girl randomly. You can’t do that all the time, but it is priceless every once in a while.
2. Hugs – an extra mile in tightness
It feels great being hugged. If you care for a girl, she would love your extra tightness at times. An extra effort to tell your girl about the kind of connection you have with her is priceless.

A 12-years-old cancer victim, Athena, died last month (on May 28, 2014). Before her death she had written some secret notes to her family, behind her mirror. Her father was heartbroken when he found the secret writing after a few days of her death.
After being diagnosed with osteosarcoma, Athena only lived a year. The cancer that develops on growing bones is commonly found in teenagers and young adults.
The teenager, Stephen Sutton, who raised more than £3m for a cancer charity has died four years after being diagnosed with cancer. Paying tribute to her selfless, courageous and inspirational son, his mother, Jane Sutton, released a statement in Facebook page to confirm his death.
Last month, I wrote about Stephen and his charitable effort. At that time, he had raised £1m and the snowball effect took over raising more fund for the charity.
Jane Sutton stated that her “courageous, selfless, inspirational son passed away peacefully in his sleep in the early hours of this morning, Wednesday 14th May.”
An Indian actress, Manisha Koirala, raised to the top position in the film industry, Bollywood. She was known to drink a lot, having affair with everybody and having fun all the time. When the age took toll and her film career started taking a downward trend, she got married and divorced within the first year.
To make the matter worse, she was diagnosed of cancer at the end of 2012. Surviving ovarian cancer reversed the lifestyle of the actress. Here are some of the insights of the actress:
