Minnesota: where there are 10,000 lakes, where goodbyes take years, and where ranch is put on everything! We as Minnesotan’s do things a little different here, so here is a quick list of Minnesota’s weirdest laws, where some are fact and some are fiction.

  1. You cannot cross state lines with a duck on your head

This has always been my favorite one since I was little because it is so ridiculous. According to minnesotafunfacts.com this could have been a law from an earlier day in age or could just be a lore.

  1. You are not allowed to eat hamburgers on Sunday's in St. Cloud

According to onlyinyourstate.com this was rumored to be a law, but obviously it is not. They just say you can not buy alcohol on Sunday’s.

  1. Senior living homes can only play bingo games twice a week

Don’t worry seniors, this law was reversed according to one source. But previously it was ruled that senior living homes could only have big games of bingo twice a week due to when charitable gaming was first introduced to these types of facilities in Minnesota. According to lifeinminnesota.com “the same law also prohibited those visiting loved ones at nursing homes and senior centers from joining in on the game!”

  1. You cannot have an extremely dirty or muddy car driving on the highway

I can understand this one, but also thanks to Minnesota winters, this seems impossible! However, it is explained on minnesotafunfacts.com that “is illegal to drive a truck or other vehicle whose wheels or tires deposit mud, dirt, sticky substances, litter or other material on any street or highway.” This is actually specifically for Minnetonka and is documented in their books under section 845.010 – Public Nuisances.

  1. A person deserves a 10-cent bounty for every rodent they kill and bring to their town office

At one point in time a town in Minnesota had such a bad rodent problem that they created this law to help eliminate the rats. Noted on lifeinminnesota.com this is from Minnesota Statute #348.13. and any town in Minnesota could come up with a similar law for any rodent cause problems.

Almost $9 Million Dollar House in Minnesota That is Going To Make Your Jaw Drop

You know those huge houses that are in movies? I've always wondered if the mansion where Batman lives is real. Or you know the party scenes for some of the Mission Impossible movies where there are a ton of people and somewhere in the crowd are the good guys who are trying to find the bad guys? This house in Minnesota is one of those places and it could be yours for almost $9 million. In fact, I'm pretty sure this house could actually be Batman's house because it is on its own island AND you go through a tunnel to get to the 8-stall garage. 
 
According to Realtor.com, this house in Greenwood, Minnesota is listed by Jeffrey Dewing of Coldwell Banker Realty and as you can see from the photos, it is a masterpiece. It sits on 1.37 acres, has 5 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, has almost 14,000 square feet, one of Minnesota's largest residential glass-enclosed atriums, an elevator, movie theater, gym, sauna, locker room, relaxations room, not just one but a double wine room, bar lounge, poker room, and an indoor grotto.

The home was previously listed for $15 million by Jessica Prudden with Prudden & Company.
