Law Amusements

Laws that amuse us…

In Thailand
--You must wear a shirt while driving a car.

--You must pay a fine of $600 in Thailand if you're caught throwing away chewed bubble gum on the sidewalk.

--No one may step on any of the nation's currency. Because all the bills and coins in Thailand have a picture of the King printed on them. As the King is highly revered, stepping on his likeness can not only get you landed in jail, but can also lead to a serious beating.

In Singapore
--If you are convicted of littering three times, you will have to clean the streets on Sundays with a bib on saying, “I am a litterer.

--The sale of gum is prohibited, after a prolific amount of chewed gum had been stuck in the subway stations and cars. While the sale of gum is prohibited, it is not illegal to chew it, but if one sticks the gum anywhere else besides the trash can, he or she faces huge fines.

In Japan
There is no age of consent.

In China
--To go to college you must be intelligent.

--You may only have one child, or you will have to pay a fine.China is the most populated nation in the world, and the government there has taken measures to stem any sort of growth in the population and, hopefully, decrease it. Despite many westerners' beliefs, China does not kill second borns. Rather, a large tax is placed on any family which chooses to have more than one offspring.

In Philippines
Cars whose license plates end with a 1 or 2 are not allowed on the roads on Monday, 3 or 4 on Tuesday, 5 or 6 on Wednesday, 7 or 8 on Thursday, and 9 or 0 on Friday.
