South Carolina law provides that "on the first day of the week, commonly called Sunday," it's illegal to "engage in worldly work, labor, business" or the sale of consumer goods or to employ others to do so. The one exception is made in Charleston County, where those who observe the Sabbath on the "seventh day of the week" (i.e., Saturday) may work on Sundays, as long as they refrain on Saturday. But don't worry, the law, which dates back to the 1800s, is rarely enforced, so you can still grocery shop, eat out, fly out of town, or take an emergency trip to the hospital if need be.

It's important to note that the sort of static this law refers to is not the kind that makes your hair stand on end, but the kind that makes crackling noises and "snow" on your television.

In Tennessee, you can't share your Netflix password (or any other password for a paid subscription streaming service). In 2011, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam signed a bill into law to this effect. "The law is mainly targeted at hackers who steal and then sell log-in information in bulk. But this means it will also be crime for everyday consumers to share user log-in information with friends so they can access media downloads for free." Getting caught could mean up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $2,500. Here are 51 facts you've always believed to be true that are actually false.
