In my home state, California, lawmakers often invent solutions to problems before we as a people, know they exist.
Sheeting is one according to this article
I'm sure quite a few of these (http://www.loonylaws.com/California.htm) are made up for the sake of humor, but I like this one...
"Peeling an orange in your hotel room is banned in California."
It is after all, the land of fruits and nuts, so the Orange is allowed to be peeled on alternate Tuesdays in suites, and Wednesdays in normal rooms, unless contradicted by local laws!
