Lawyers Share What They Can't Believe Is Legal Or Illegal

Someone on AskReddit asked for lawyers to share their biggest surprises when it came to what was legal/illegal, upon going through law school and learning the ins and outs of the justice system. Some of these are the very definition of outdated, and it's a true wonder the laws are still standing. While others are just a little bit silly.

We like learning how our favorite movies achieved their astounding visual effects, but sound effects can make or break the tone of a movie. It's pretty cool to think that it's someone's job to figure out what it would sound like for a mooshy robot body to be pushed through metal bars.
