Don't know if it's worth adding it into that note, but in the UK, jaywalking isn't generally even a crime except on motorways or roads with a "No Pedestrians" sign.

Removed this section for being sorta controversial and attracting natter:

  • In The Bible, the first two people decide to have a bit of fruit, resulting in the fall of man and eternal punishment.
    • Then again, it was a knowledge-giving, incredibly powerful bit of fruit that granted the gift of knowledge of good and evil to humanity.
      • Leading to the Fridge Logic of how they could be held accountable if they didn't even know what evil was.
    • God specifically told them not to. It was just about the only commandment he had given at that point, so it should have had some weight.
      • But why? They had no knowledge to go on, of course they'd take it, and God knew from the get go that they would. Genesis has a stupid amount of internal inconsistencies.

Is this one worth keeping?

When did 'public urination' become akin to jaywalking? I'm sure whipping it out and peeing on something is indecency.

There are times when your chances of getting to a bathroom are slim to nil. Where every store has "No Public Restrooms" and every bar has a cover charge. You duck down a back alley, look around to make you're not exposed, move over to a dumpster... cue the flashing blue and red lights.

The point is, even if you're as concealed as you can manage, and you have no viable alternative, if anyone sees you, you're in public. It has gotten people tagged as sex offenders, and put on the sex offender registry.
