7 Weird Laws From Around The World That Still Exist!
Laws just have one basic purpose to serve – to maintain civil behaviour. But there are a few laws which just do not make sense in any way. You could actually consider the fact that some of them were drafted in the older times, but keeping them active is something pointless. So here are a few weird laws from around the world, that will make you go "What?!"
The Indian Motor Vehicles Act, 1914
Living in Andhra Pradesh? Want to become a motor vehicle inspector there? You better go to the dentist first. One of the criteria to go for the aforementioned career is to have proper, well-brushed teeth. So for all you paan consumers, this one is a big no.
In Iowa, USA, it is illegal for a man with a moustache to kiss a woman in public
One more reason to get rid of that creepy moustache.
In England, it is illegal to die in the House Of Parliament
One must ask what the punishment for this would be.
In Florida, USA, it is illegal for a divorced or a widowed woman to skydive on a Sunday afternoon
We wonder which widow or divorcee pissed someone off enough that they had to draft this as a law.
In Switzerland, it is illegal to flush a toilet after 10 PM
This is confusing on multiple levels. If flushing was the problem, they should have just made using the toilet illegal after 10 PM.
In Florida, USA, it's illegal to fart in a public place after 6 PM on a Thursday
Florida is at the specific-day-and-time-law scene again, ladies and gentlemen.
Chewing gum is illegal in Singapore
