    Computer-repair technicians in the Lone Star State have to have a private investigator's license. (At least, allegedly.) To get a PI license, you have to either get a criminal justice degree or spend three years as a PI's apprentice.


    In related news, Texans are weird.

    Last week Tom Waits performed in Dallas for the first time in 29 years. He blamed his lengthy absence on various arcane Texas laws:

    It's illegal for single women to skydive on Sundays
    It's illegal to eat at a place that's on fire.
    In Dallas it's illegal to say "Oh boy" or "For Christ's sake"
