Things We Should Outlaw But Can't

There are always those few things in life that get people extremely fired up.

It's those little inconveniences, nuisances, and annoyances in everyday life that bother us to no end and likely aren't going away anytime soon.

One of my biggest pet peeves is hearing "like" and "umm" an absurd amount of times in a person's speech. It got me thinking, why shouldn't we outlaw? Why is that allowed again? Well, it's a free country so that's definitely not going to happen, but it's a nice thought.

Are you tired of seeing that same meme pop up on your Facebook page? Have you just about had it with a Lays potato chip bag that's only half full? And are you over the whole Republican-Democrat soap opera every Election cycle?

Wouldn't it be awesome if we could have the things that irritate us most or the things we felt were wrong- outlawed?

Twitter thinks so. We've made a list of what people are saying should be outlawed.
