There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

The Third Amendment to the United States Constitution reads:
“”No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.
Parsing the Third Amendment
This amendment was very relevant to the era in which it was first passed, since the forcible quartering of British Soldiers was one of the things that precipitated the American Revolution. It is considerably less relevant now as the US military provides housing for its troops - as do most militaries today.
None! Zero! Zilch! This appears to be the only amendment nobody has had any issues with and can, generally, agree upon the interpretation of. But really, will that last?
“”"You troops are just going to have to sleep on the patio" is a perfectly Constitutional thing for you to tell them.
