Laws that should be used TODAY (POST 6)

14.) If anyone steals the minor son of another, he shall be put to death.
This law would work because kidnapping is a serious issue if someone chooses to give up their child that’s one thing. But having the life you created taken away from you without your consent is a tragedy. Kidnapping is something no one should ever even consider or attempt

122.) If any one give another silver, gold, or anything else to keep, he shall show everything to some witness, draw up a contract, and then hand it over for safe keeping.  
This law would work because than people wouldn’t be able to steal as much and be able to call people fraud and other things. There would be proof and documentation about people belongs.

154.)  If a man be guilty of incest with his daughter, he shall be driven from the place (exiled). 
This law would work because that’s just weird you should never have any sort of relationship like that with a family member.. EVER. That’s just not cool. So the people who are willing to do kind of thing that fine do it away from here

152.)   If after the woman had entered the man's house, both contracted a debt, both must pay the merchant.
This law would work because than when you’re married it’s like everything that’s mine is yours so if you have debt that it’s not just your response ability to pay its back. If the debt is developed while they are together than it's their own dang fault so they both should have to pay it
197.)  If he break another man's bone, his bone shall be broken.
This law would work because it’s do onto others as you want done onto yourself. So if you hurt someone bam you get hurt. If you get mad and punch someone in the face bam you get punched in the face. Fair is fair.

Post 8 Most Important Invention Award

The most influential invention of maybe all time is the chariot was introduced to early Egypt near the beginning in the Second Millennium B.C. The Romans used the Chariot for war and for moving goods great distances. Even today we're affected by its invention. The car is a later version of the chariot. Through the centuries that is what it’s developed into.
This is one of the most monumental inventions because it gave us such a good basis for later technological advances. It’s opened up trade, increase success in battle, and allowed the people of that time to travel easier.

Hammurabi Code for Northern HS POST 7

If you are disrespectful to a teacher you lose your parking privileges or lunch rights

Teachers are allowed to slap students when they are out of control

If you fight with someone physically on school grounds you will lose an ear

When you steal someone else’s belongings than you must return it and pay the worth of the object

If you bully, than you will lose two toes

If you play pranks on people in the hallway than you will have dirt thrown in your eyes

If you are rude to another student than you most give them your shoes.

If you bring in weapons than the weapon will be used on your dominate foot

Underclassmen must give upperclassmen they’re seats on the bus

If you dress slutty than you will have to wear a black trash bag for the rest of the month

We would have gladitator matches to settle disputes if both parties are willing to agree to the match

If males are rude to girls based upon a vote of non-peers they will be punished with rocks being thrown at them
