One crazy reason why I am still at school and bearing with law stuff is the kind of enjoyment I get when reading the crazy laws of all the lands and reflect on them. Why are these laws created? Who have thought about these? Here are few of the peculiar laws around the world:

Drunk drivers can be punished by death, even before a firing squad. This is true in San Salvador. In Chester, people are banned from entering the city before sunrise and from staying after sunset. Another strange law is in UK. When you found a whale in the British coast, it is automatic that its head belongs to the King. The tail, on the other hand, belongs to the Queen, just in case she needs the whale's bones for her corset. In Bahrain, there is a law that prohibits male doctors to examine directly the woman's genitals. These male doctors can only examine through a reflection in a mirror. In Vermont, a written permission from their husbands is necessary if they desire to wear false teeth.


  1. Gosh, the world has weird laws. Well, it has to do with culture, i guess.

  2. i agree with you lucy, its the culture. thats why laws are created. Ella Jones
