30 Weird Laws From Around The World That Sound Made Up, But Are Actually True

Published

on

 

Laws are usually universally acceptable rules that keep us safe and organized and so that we know what to expect from others. Laws vary from country to country, reflecting the values of a certain culture, and you can understand if it differs from your own. But sometimes laws are so bizarre that you can’t help but wonder what provoked lawmakers to make the decision to approve some of the laws.

Sometimes countries don’t update very old laws that look silly in modern times, or a singular incident made them want to never experience something again, so they put a ban on it. Bored Panda collected some of the strangest, silliest, and most amusing laws from around the world. So enjoy and don’t forget to upvote the ones that surprised you the most!

#1 It’s Illegal To Toss Non-Biodegradable Plastic Confetti In Mobile, Alabama

In the Code of Ordinance of the city Mobile in Alabama, there is a section talking about the use of confetti: “It shall be unlawful and an offense against the city for any person to have in possession, keep, store, use, manufacture, sell, offer for sale, give away or handle any non-biodegradable, plastic-based confetti, serpentine, or other substance or matters similar thereto within the city or within its police jurisdiction.”

Paper confetti is fine, but the law is more focused on plastic confetti which doesn’t disintegrate and ends up lying all over green areas.

#2 Billboards Are Banned In Alaska, Maine, Vermont, And Hawaii

There are four states in the United States that have banned billboards: Alaska, Maine, Vermont, and Hawaii, where the ban was introduced the earliest.

#3 In Capri, You Must Clean Up After Your Dog; If Not, They Will Trace It With DNA

In the small island on the south side of the Gulf of Naples, Capri, there is a local law that dog owners must clean up after their dogs if they poop on the street. Unfortunately, not everyone is obeying the law and to enforce it, Mayor Lembo thought he could take advantage of another existing law requiring all dogs to have blood tests for canine leishmaniasis, and just have the DNA matched. If a person is busted for leaving a mess on the streets, they will be fined €2,000 ($2,400).

#4 Wearing High Heels Is Prohibited At Some Historical Sites In Greece

In 2009, the director of Greek prehistoric and classical antiquities, Eleni Korka, said: «Female visitors must wear shoes that do not wound the monuments. These monuments have a skin that suffers and people must realize that.» Stilettos can punch holes as the whole body’s pressure is on them, so to minimize the wear on the monuments, the ban was introduced.

#5 It Is Against The Law To Have A Sleeping Donkey In Your Bathtub

In the state of Arizona, to this day, you can’t let a donkey sleep in your bathtub. The origin of the law is actually a funny story that apparently, nobody wanted to repeat itself. In 1924, a donkey found an abandoned bathtub outside its owner’s property and the animal took it as a good place to sleep. While it was sleeping, a dam near Kingman collapsed, causing a flash flood, and the napping donkey was carried by the waters. The people of the town were after the donkey to save him and after experience, considering the expense and the risks encountered by the rescuers, it was decided that donkeys should not be allowed to sleep in bathtubs.

#6 It’s Illegal To Wrestle A Bear In South Africa

#7 By Law You Have To Walk Your Dog Three Times A Day In Turin, Italy

In Turin, dog owners must walk their dogs three times a day. This rule was introduced in 2006, a year after Rome issued a decree saying that dog owners must walk their dogs at least once a day. This is a way of fighting cruelty against animals. The fines can go up to $600.

#8 Running Out Of Fuel On The Autobahn Can Lead To A Fine

It is illegal to stop on the autobahn in Germany without a serious reason as it is dangerous. The driver is required to make sure that their vehicle is in the right condition to be used, and running out of fuel is not considered a serious enough reason to stop, so it is seen as a violation of this requirement and negligence.

#9 It’s Illegal To Disrupt A Wedding In Australia

In South Australia, if you purposefully disturb a wedding, a funeral, or any religious service, you can be fined $10,000 or be imprisoned for 2 years. In the Summary Offences Act 1953, it is stated, «A person who intentionally obstructs or disturbs a religious service or a wedding or funeral (whether secular or religious) […] is guilty of an offence.»

#10 In La Paz, Bolivia, Married Women Can Only Drink One Glass Of Wine In A Bar Or Restaurant

#11 You Cannot Enter The British Parliament Wearing Armor

The Statute Forbidding Bearing Of Armour or Coming Armed To Parliament Act 1313 was enacted in 1313 during the reign of Edward II Of England. The law is still in force today, although no one has been prosecuted for this in modern times. It states, «that in all parliaments, Treatises and other Assemblies, which should be made in the realm of England for ever, that every man shall come without all force and armour.»

#12 Russia, Belarus, And Kazakhstan «Ban» Lace Undergarments

In 2014 Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan introduced a regulation which requires clothing in contact with skin to contain at least 6 percent of cotton. Underwear not meeting the requirement was not to be sold in stores. But most luxury lace undergarments have less than 4 percent cotton in them, meaning that the regulation is practically banning it.

The reasoning for this was that synthetic fabrics don’t absorb moisture as well and can cause skin problems. However, textile producers and shoppers were not happy about this and there were even protests against the ban in Kazakhstan.

#13 Some Beaches In Spain Forbid Building Large Sandcastles And Statues

Building sandcastles on the beach is a very usual activity not only among kids, but adults too. However, some adults take it to the extreme, building such huge sculptures and castles that they were banned on some beaches in Spain. Some of the sculptures were really intricate, depicting such famous works of art like the last supper, and artists would take tips from tourists. But it doesn‘t affect tourists as long as they build the usual small castles.

#14 In Public Pools In France, Men Can Wear Only Clinging Swimming Trunks

In France, swimming shorts are not allowed to be worn in public swimming pools by men; only skintight swimming trunks are allowed. Apparently, it has to do with hygiene, because men may wear their baggy swim shorts as normal shorts and then they may pick up dust, dirt, and such.

#15 It’s Illegal To Tell Fortunes In Baltimore, Maryland

In the city of Baltimore, fortunetelling for money is forbidden and is punishable with a fine or jail: “Every person who shall demand or accept any remuneration or gratuity for forecasting or foretelling or for pretending to forecast or foretell the future of another by cards, palmreading or any other scheme, practice or device, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and upon conviction thereof shall be fined not more than $500 or subject to imprisonment for not more than 1 year.”

#16 You Could Be Fined If Caught Eating And Drinking Near Churches And Public Buildings In Florence

In 2018, the city of Florence banned people from pausing in the historic center to eat food standing or sitting on sidewalks, roadways, and on the doorsteps of shops and houses. For breaking the law, a person can get a fine up to €500 ($610). It was needed to stop people from littering and keeping the crowded historical center clean.

#17 It’s Illegal To Sell And Import Chewing Gum In Singapore

Chewing gum was banned in Singapore in 1992, but currently it is not illegal to chew it, just to import it and sell it. In 2004, the ban had a revision and since then it is possible to buy therapeutic, dental, and nicotine chewing gum from a doctor or registered pharmacist.

Advertisement

 

The ban was introduced because vandals had begun sticking chewing gum on the door sensors of MRT trains, preventing doors from functioning properly and causing disruption to train services. Although they were rare incidents, they were difficult to fix and it was almost impossible to catch who did it. These incidents were just the last straw as the ban on chewing gum was brought up earlier, but not approved. Vandals were sticking their gum in mailboxes, inside keyholes, and on lift buttons. Chewing gum left on the ground, stairways, and pavements in public areas was hard to clean, so cleaning cost more and damaged cleaning equipment.

#18 Drunk People In The UK Can’t Be In Charge Of A Cow

According to the Licensing Act 1872 of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, which enacts various regulations and offences relating to alcohol, “Every person who is drunk while in charge on any highway or other public place of any carriage, horse, cattle, or steam engine […] shall be liable to a penalty.”

#19 It’s Illegal To Wear A Mask Fully Covering The Face In Public In Denmark

In 2018, Denmark’s parliament approved a law that makes it illegal to wear garments that cover the face in public. It raised concerns that this law is aimed at some Muslim women who wear veils such as the niqab or burqa. Politicians argued that this ban would promote integration, or public safety, or that wearing a veil is inconsistent with national values like gender equality. However, Muslim women expressed that they don’t feel like they are being integrated, but rather discriminated against as wearing veils is their choice.

#20 You Must Provide For Your Elderly Parents In China

In 2013, a new law was released in China requiring adults to care for their aging parents and visit them at least once a year. If the children fail to provide mental and financial support or don’t visit, they will have to pay fines or face time in jail. Because young adults are focused on their careers and want to be independent, their old parents are being left behind. It’s also because of the family planning policies that it is very easy for the only child to lose contact with their parents. And as China’s population is also getting old, more elderly people become neglected and feel lonely. So various measures are being taken and the «Elderly Rights Law» is one of them.

#21 It’s Illegal To Flag Down A Taxi In England If You Have The Plague

You cannot ride a taxi or any public transportation if you know that you have plague or any notifiable disease, for that matter, like cholera, relapsing fever, smallpox, and typhus. The law is contained in the Public Health (Control of Disease) Act 1985. Public Health Acts date back to the mid-nineteenth century. Even though the law is quite old and plague cases are very rare, we now know how fast a disease can spread.

#22 The Citizens Of Monaco Are Prohibited From Playing In The Monte Carlo Casino

It was always forbidden for residents of Monaco to gamble in The Carlo Casino. When Princess Caroline developed the Monte Carlo Casino in the mid-1800s, she wanted all the revenue to come from foreigners. To compensate Monaco citizens for not allowing this form of entertainment, they are excused from income taxes.

#23 You Can’t Take Selfies With Buddha In Sri Lanka

Mistreatment of Buddhist images and artefacts is strictly taboo in Sri Lanka. And when you are taking a selfie, you stand with your back turned to Buddha, which is considered disrespectful, so you shouldn’t take selfies in front of it. They take it very seriously and there was a case of French tourists being convicted under a section of the Penal Code which outlaws deeds intended to wound or insult «the religious feelings of any class of persons» through acts committed in, upon or near sacred objects or places of worship. What did they do you may ask? Well, they were posing for a picture, pretending to kiss a Buddha statue.

#24 Canadian Radio Stations Must Play Canadian Artists

Canadian content is considered any content that was at least partly written, produced, presented, or otherwise contributed to by people from Canada.

#25 Public Buildings In Wyoming Must Have Art Displays

Wyoming Statute 16-6-802 requires that newly constructed public buildings include art displays at a cost equal to 1% of the building’s total construction costs (but not to exceed $100,000). If the total cost of construction is less than $100,000, buildings are exempt from this requirement. The legislation was first passed in 1991. The artwork for each project is selected by a committee specifically selected for that project and its purpose is to beautify state buildings and draw attention to the wealth of artists’ experience within the region.

#26 Until 2015, It Was Illegal To Dance After Midnight In Japan

From 1948 until 2015, it was illegal to dance after midnight in Japan. The ban was designed to stop prostitution that was linked to dance halls, but it wasn’t really enforced. However, the new law says club seating areas can’t be too dark, which is an attempt to discourage crime. Darker clubs should be governed under the old law and have stricter rules for after-midnight operation.

#27 In The Canton Appenzell Innerrhoden, Switzerland, Nude Hiking Is Against The Law

Switzerland doesn’t have a specific law against nudity, just a law against indecency. This law was interpreted quite loosely by tourists and naked hiking became a popular thing. People were saying that they felt the sensation of freedom and connection with nature when they hiked naked.

 

The Swiss people didn’t appreciate encountering naked foreigners, so a vote was held in 2009 and it ended with a ban on nude hiking in the small canton in Switzerland, Appenzell Innerrhoden.

#28 It’s Illegal For Your Chicken To Cross The Road In Georgia

In the United States, in the town of Quitman, Georgia, chicken or other domestic bird owners should keep their domestic fowl away from the streets or other public places. In Chapter 8 of the city’s Code of Ordinance, it is stated, «It shall be unlawful for any person owning or controlling chickens, ducks, geese or any other domestic fowl to allow the same to run at large upon the streets or alleys of the city or to be upon the premises of any other person, without the consent of such other person.»

#30 China Prohibits Unauthorized Buddhist Monks’ Reincarnation

Until 2018, the State Administration For Religious Affairs (SARA) was a part of China‘s government, and in 2007, they issued a decree that all the reincarnations of tulkus of Tibetan Buddhism must get government approval, otherwise the reincarnations would be illegal.

Advertisement

 

Article 7 of the decree states, “once an application for a living Buddha’s reincarnation has received approval, […] the management organization at the monastery where the living Buddha is registered, or the corresponding Buddhist association, shall establish a search team to look for the reincarnate soul child, and search affairs shall be carried out under the leadership of the guidance team. No group or individual may without authorization carry out any activities related to searching for or recognizing reincarnating living buddha soul children.”

And when the reincarnate is found, the child will have to be approved by the provincial or autonomous regional people’s government religious affairs department, the State Administration For Religious Affairs or the State Council for approval, depending on the size of the living Buddha’s impact.

‘Añejado como el vino’: 40 veces la gente resultó ser 100% correcta en algo

A menudo escuchamos sobre cosas que envejecieron como la leche y se volvieron amargas, por decir lo menos. Piense en declaraciones como «El hombre no volará en un millón de años», hechas por The New York Times en 1903, solo unos días antes de que los hermanos Wright inventaran el primer avión, o en Google publicándose como «un motor de búsqueda puro sin enlaces. a patrocinadores, sin noticias, sin basura en el portal, sin anuncios y sin clima ”en 1999. Siga leyendo para conocer más ejemplos desastrosamente incorrectos de cosas que se volvieron amargas en nuestra publicación anterior aquí.

Pero esta vez estamos viendo los ejemplos opuestos que resistieron la prueba del tiempo y demostraron que tenían 100% de razón. Gracias al rincón misceláneo de Reddit r / AgedLikeWine, tenemos algunas publicaciones brillantes listas a continuación.

¡Vota tus favoritos y asegúrate de agregar algo que creas que ha envejecido maravillosamente en la sección de comentarios a continuación!

# 1 Maldita sea, lo llamó

Cientos de cartas de amor entre dos soldados homosexuales de la Segunda Guerra Mundial fueron descubiertas y vendidas a un museo. Uno de ellos dijo: «¿No sería maravilloso si todas nuestras cartas pudieran publicarse en el futuro en una época más iluminada? Entonces todo el mundo podría ver lo enamorados que estamos». Ahora se están convirtiendo en un libro.

Algunas cosas nunca cambian para mí. El miedo a las arañas, mi amor por la coca cola cero y mi disgusto por las pasas. Haz lo que sea: escóndelas en un bizcocho, intenta persuadirme de que son lo mismo que las uvas, ahora, como adulto, he llegado a un acuerdo de que hay casi 0 posibilidades de que empiece a comerlas.

Al igual que mis preferencias personales, muchas otras cosas han resistido la prueba del tiempo y han demostrado ser relevantes hasta el día de hoy. Un gran ejemplo son los libros. Desde su invención en la década de 1450, los libros han llenado los estantes de nuestros hogares con historias de aventuras y exploración. Piense en los clásicos como En busca del tiempo perdido de Marcel Proust y Ulysses de James Joyce, siguen cautivando nuestra imaginación más de cien años después.

Algunos libros no solo resistieron la prueba del tiempo, sino que también demostraron ser incluso más valiosos hoy de lo que eran inicialmente. Tomemos la primera edición de The Marble Faun de William Faulkner, por ejemplo, que ahora está a la venta por $ 125,000. El vendedor Peter L. Stern & Co. presenta el libro como la “Primera edición del primer libro del autor. Cartulinas originales cubiertas de papel con etiquetas en el lomo y en la cubierta; aproximadamente bien en la rara sobrecubierta con diminutas astillas en las extremidades y muy poco desgaste; en una funda de tela personalizada «.

Además, las primeras ediciones que incluyen dedicatorias personales, firmas, personalizaciones y otros artefactos raros pueden incluso duplicar el precio. La condición es otro factor clave que influye en el valor contable. Un libro viejo estropeado que se está cayendo a pedazos tendrá poco valor. La escasez también influye en el valor. Por ejemplo, para los libros de tapa dura publicados a partir del siglo XX, la presencia de una sobrecubierta y su condición también afectan en gran medida el valor.

Cuando eres la chica que siente demasiado

Published

on

Es difícil ser la chica que siente “demasiado” en un mundo donde la lógica triunfa sobre los sentimientos. Es una batalla constante para acallar sus sentimientos o asustar a la gente. Todos lo hacemos, algunos más que otros: escondemos nuestros corazones para protegerlos de que se rompan.

Sentimos «te amo», pero decimos «eso es genial». Mantenemos la calma, mantenemos el distanciamiento.

Advertisement

Sentimos «Te extraño», pero envía un mensaje de texto «Te avisaré cuando esté libre». Fingimos que no nos importa.

Sentimos «te necesito», pero respondemos «haciéndolo bien». Fingimos ser fuertes.

Creemos que estamos siendo geniales al perpetrar la falsedad de que los sentimientos profundos están mal. Somos parte del problema. Continuamos el ciclo de la soledad en lugar de forjar un nuevo camino hacia la conexión. Jugamos con la idea de lo «guay», pero todo lo que nos aporta es frialdad.

Advertisement

Admiro a quienes son ellos mismos sin pedir disculpas. Aquellos que entregan su corazón con cada interacción, sin miedo, eventualmente no quedará nada. Aspiro a ser como ellos.

Si eres la chica que siente “demasiado”, quiero que sepas que tu vulnerabilidad es un regalo. No te debilita. No dejes que te convenzan de que eres demasiado blando. Está bien pensar con el corazón. Admirable, incluso. Amar profundamente y estar en sintonía con tus emociones no es una falta. Una de las cosas más hermosas del amor es que tú dices tus propias reglas; no es posible hacerlo mal, siempre y cuando lo hagas con honestidad.

Solo necesita encontrar a alguien que esté asombrado por su fuerte capacidad emocional en lugar de abrumado por ella. Y para encontrarlos, tienes que seguir exponiéndote, mostrándole al mundo los tesoros ocultos que son emociones crudas.

Al principio, es posible que no sepa qué hacer con esta información. Pero tengo dos palabras para ti: noche de trivia. Como escribió Jaya Saxena en GQ, nadie puede afirmar haber inventado «conocer cosas al azar por diversión», pero la tendencia ganó mucha tracción en la década de 1970. Mientras que el Jeopardy! Original El programa de juegos diurno se estrenó en 1964, la versión sindicada nocturna comenzó a transmitirse una década más tarde, en la época en que las trivialidades de los pubs comenzaron a despegar.

Advertisement

Por supuesto, las noches de concursos de pubs han evolucionado y gran parte de ese cambio ha sido orgánico, la primera versión formalizada se produjo en 1976, cuando Sharon Burns y Tom Porter vendieron concursos a los pubs del sur de Inglaterra.

Al principio, la idea era dar a los bares una forma de que la gente entrara en las noches tranquilas, pero el concepto de pub quiz se convirtió en un fenómeno cultural. En los EE. UU., Grupos como Pub Trivia USA y America’s Pub Quiz organizan concursos en toda la ciudad y el estado, a menudo con importantes premios en efectivo.

«No queremos que la gente entre en un bar y sienta que no puede contribuir durante una ronda», dijo Cullen Shaw, cofundador de la NYC Trivia League. «Si hay una pregunta de poesía del siglo XVII realmente difícil, tal vez haya una persona en el bar que lo sepa, pero después surge una pregunta sobre deportes y dejan que alguien más responda. Eso es lo divertido de las trivialidades del equipo».

Pero ni siquiera necesitas un equipo para participar ahora. Cientos de miles de personas inician sesión todas las noches para jugar a HQ, y aunque la aplicación puede tener fallas a veces, no ha impedido que la gente intente reclamar cientos y, a veces, miles de dólares en premios.

Pero aprender hechos oscuros no es solo divertido. También es bueno para nuestra salud mental. Por ejemplo, los expertos dicen que jugar juegos de preguntas y respuestas puede proporcionar un subidón de dopamina muy parecido a los juegos de azar, pero sin los efectos negativos.

«Obtienes una ráfaga o una señal de neuroreward o un estallido de dopamina al ganar», dijo a Healthline John Kounios, Ph.D., profesor de psicología y director del programa de doctorado en ciencias cognitivas y cerebrales aplicadas en la Universidad de Drexel en Pensilvania. Creo que cada vez que te desafían con una pregunta de trivia y lo sabes, tienes prisa. Es como apostar «.

Kounios dijo que los beneficios también pueden ser similares a los de jugar un videojuego. Sin embargo, a diferencia de los juegos de azar y los videojuegos, Kounios dijo que las trivialidades no son un hábito problemático.

«No creo que haya trampas», dijo. «Como cualquier otra cosa que sea divertida, [just] toma tiempo «.
