    Ah, yes. Stupid laws . . .

    In old England (and America), if you tried to commit suicide and failed, they would hang you.

    In New York, you are not allowed to speak in elevators, nor are you allowed to conduct puppet shows in your window. How odd is that?!

    Re: Absurd Laws?

    reading this about silly laws, is quite amusing.
    how can you be arrested if you are dead, like you said Rayme.
    as for the others, I find them to be down right stupid.

    as for any where I live...
    I do not know of any.

    Lol ^^ Those are so cool Bhrett!!! It was a real pleasure to read that. Those really are silly laws, but all of them were created because of stupid people and some of them actually seem quite ok to be put up now.

    I would gladly punnish all people who try to do suicide... suicide just creeps me out. I almost went mad because of such a happening once... I am fighting it with all four (sorry- latvian saying) ever since.

    And I actually adore the fact that Britain still has laws that worked such a long time ago. It just shows how good the laws were... It's like one of those historical monuments

    My recommended fanfic: "Dreamer" by Scourge

    Hold on! There's more!

    In Australia,
    --People are not allowed to walk in the streets wearing black clothes, felt shoes, and a painted black face because this makes them look too much like a night thief.
    --Paid carriers (like taxi drivers) must take hay with them.

    In Switzerland,
    --Discharging water loudly down the toilet after 10:00 p.m. (22:00) is forbidden for fear of disturbing the neighbours.

    In Swaziland (Africa),
    --Women are not allowed to wear pants. If they are caught wearing pants, soldiers are permitted to snatch them off the women and tear them to shreds.
    --Women over ten years old are not permitted to wear over-knee skirts.

    In Thailand,
    --Nobody is allowed to step on money (for fear of showing contempt toward his or her monarch). This is punishable by imprisonment.

    In France,
    --It is forbidden to name a pig Napoleon.

    --By law, anyone who has been drinking is "sober" until he or she "cannot hold onto the ground
    does that means any crimes he did would result him guilty? and being drunk dont mean he did it accidently by law? @.@ holy...
