  1. Growing up, we went to Myrtle Beach, SC during the summer. On Sunday's you really couldnt buy anything due to what was called Blue Laws. They still have some alcohol retrictions there but most everything else has been relaxed. I think they legalized Tattoos 2 or three years ago.

    If their wernt someone keeping a horse in a bathtub they wouldnt have made it a law.
