I consider myself a beer connoisseur. Some would even say I'm a beer snob.
I went to the liquor store today to buy beer and they were closed. So I went to the other liquor store to buy beer and they were closed too. I finally went to the gas station where I know they sell beer and asked the lady there...
"Can you sell me beer?"
"Not until <looks at the clock>... well, right now actually."
"Wait, so if I walked in here 5 minutes ago you couldn't sell it to me?"
"Right. It's stupid, I know. But it's the law."
"Is that why the liquor stores are all closed?"
"Right. They're not allowed to open today."

It just doesn't make any sense to me. You would be hard pressed to find anyone at all who feels as if this law is a good one. If so many people disagree with this law, why do people let it slide? You can find hundreds of similar laws just like this. Some "law maker" decides that something should be forbidden, or mandated, and even though almost nobody agrees, most people still comply with the "law".

That's the way I see it.
