Things you think you learned while you were drinking, but didn't

I was out with friends the other night when the subject came up about limits on the number of marriages a person can have in Texas. I had never heard of such a thing and argued that there was no way in hell that the government of any state would or could dictate how many times a person can get married.

I was outnumbered. Several people thought the number of allowed marriages was between four and five marriages per person. As expected, I Googled it.

There are no limits on the number of marriages a person can have in any state. Here is the official Wiki Answer:

In the US, no state has a limit on the number of times you can get married, other can only be married to one person at a time.

What you need is limits on the amount of Giant Double two-stack bacon cheeseburgers to be ordered at one sitting, or limits on the height of Amy Winehouse wannabee beehives or limits on the maximum age for which you don't get arrested for wearing two-piece bathing suits in public. Marriages? Pshaw!!!!!
