Seems in the U.S.A. a lot of your laws are screwed up.

I read a story at neowin.net a few years back that in Texas, you have to pay child support for a child(ren) that are not yours.

I could shack up with some brass in the U.S.A. she has a couple of chavies already, we solit up I move on and I can be forced to pay child support or face jail.

It's a truly screwed up system, like everything else involving the government.
