Half of ya'll would be bald.
141. If a man's wife, who lives in his house, wishes to leave to engage in business, plunging them into debt, trying to ruin her house, and neglecting her husband, and is judicially convicted, if her husband wants a divorce, she may go on her way, and he gives her nothing as a gift of release. If her husband does not wish to release her, and instead chooses to take another wife, the first wife shall remain as servant in her husband's house. OG Thot patroling
@fgtveassassin Sounds alot like many verses in the Old Testament.
That sounds like a strong, independent first wife. She should have been a cool wine aunt.
200. Thou shall not talk down to thy neighbor's wife's son.
Interesting convo y’all are having!
Just lurking here
Wonder how some of these played out, like: 207. If the man dies of his wound, he shall swear similarly, and if he (the deceased) was a free-born man, he shall pay half a mina in money.
Would there be anyone on the side of the deceased who could testify, for example, the killer had motive to kill the person?
These do sound a lot like the Old Testament. Brb google
Old Testament began to be written around 400 years after Hammurabi’s code.
@fgtveassassin I think these did not play out very often, perhaps most of their authority was in the words of the law itself, as law enforcement was primitive and ineffective
If someone knows they will only be caught 10% of the time they break a law, because enforcement is simply rare, then they would break it pretty commonly. Now make these laws as draconian as the Hammurabi code, and see if they’re still going take that gamble
We can start with Chicago and see how it goes.
I think the better law enforcement you have, the more lenient you can be with the conviction
We need a paraglider division stat.
This poet must hate tacos .
That really is a beautiful poem.
I like how it address the fact that people of the same race/nation don't need to get along all the time.
This gave me heart a attack of 90's kid nostalgia https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYfWXz20Qso&t=269s
So, what is everyone doing for their state specific actions?
That poem is great
There's a good reading of it on Youtube
Xurious also has it
Xurious's version is the intro to strike and mike
Hopefully we'll have our own Hasbara in coming years
Good evening, ladies and gentlemen.

@Phillip Wiglesworth - FL Are you enjoying a nice dinner before hitting the hay around 6:30?
Whoah hold on there sonny, @Fox. I haven't been to bed by 6:30 for about 35 years...when I was 5 years old. Now I'm in bed by 6!
Got to get that rest! That lawn isn't going to mow itself!
Back when I was a kid I would just walk into that yard, give that lawn a good, firm hand shake and say "sir, I'd like to mow this lawn."
Boom! 80k a year just like that.
