Proof That The World Is Nuts:

In Lebanon , men are legally allowed to have sex with animals, but the animals must be female. Having sexual relations with a male animal is punishable by death.

(Like THAT makes sense.)


In Bahrain , a male doctor may legally examine a woman's genitals, but is prohibited from looking directly at them during the examination. He may only see their reflection in a mirror.

(Do they look different reversed?)


Muslims are banned from looking at the genitals of a corpse. This also applies to undertakers. The sex organs of the deceased must be covered with a brick or piece of wood at all times.

(A brick?)


The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is decapitation.

(Much worse than 'going blind!')


There are men in Guam whose full-time job is to travel the countryside and deflower young virgins, who pay them for the privilege of having sex for the first time.

Reason: under Guam law, it is expressly forbidden for virgins to marry.

(Let's just think for a minute; is there any job anywhere else in the world that even comes close to this?)


In Hong Kong , a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her adulterous husband, but may only do so with her bare hands.

(No Golf Clubs . . . I hear a 3 iron works well.)

The husband's illicit lover, on the other hand, may be killed in any manner desired.

(Ah! Justice!)


Topless saleswomen are legal in Liverpool, England - but only in tropical fish stores.

(But of course!)


In Cali, Colombia, a woman may only have sex with her husband, and the first time this happens, her mother must be in the room to witness the act.

(Makes one shudder at the thought.)


In Santa Cruz, Bolivia, it is illegal for a man to have sex with a woman and her daughter at the same time.

(I presume this was a big enough problem that they had to pass this law?)


In Maryland , it is illegal to sell condoms from vending machines with one exception: Prophylactics may be dispensed from a vending machine only in places where alcoholic beverages are sold for consumption on the premises.'

(Is this a great country or what?)

(Well,.... not as great as Guam !)


Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour.

(Who volunteers for these tests?)


The ant can lift 50 times its own weight, can pull 30 times its own weight and always falls over on its right side when intoxicated.

(From drinking little bottles of ???)

(Did our government pay for this research??)


Butterflies taste with their feet..

(Ah, geez.)


An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.

(I know some people like that.)


Starfish don't have brains.

(I know some people like that, too.)


*~*~ *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

And, the best for last?

Turtles can breathe through their butts.

(And I thought I had bad breath in the morning!)

Thank you all for reading this..

If you need to reach me in the future, I will be in Guam !!!!!!

The laws were funny, but the comments in parentheses were hilarious. THere's lots of crazy laws that need mending, but until we can get that to happen, it doesn't hurt to take notice of how ridiculous society can get and to laugh at ourselves.

Thanks for the hoot!


Behold, how good and how pleasant it is
For brothers to dwell together in unity!

And some proof that we here in the U.S. are the most nuts of all, at least when it comes to sex laws:

According to FoxNews.com, the United States has more laws on the books regulating sexual behavior than all European countries combined.  Among the laws include fhe following:

It's illegal to have sex with Satan in Bakersfield, California without a condom.

Kissing for more than a minute is illegal in Halethorpe, Maryland.

In Idaho it's illegal to kiss in public for more than 18 minutes.

In Newcastle, Wyoming, it is illegal to have sex in a walk-in meat freezer.

Sexual intercourse in any position other than missionary is illegal in Washington, D.C.

Sex toys are illegal in Alabama.

It is illegal to have sex while hunting and fishing on your wedding day in Oblong, Illinois.

In Minnesota it's illegal to have sex with a live fish (though apparently dead fish are totally OK).

In Connersville, Wisconsin, it's illegal for a man to fire a gun while his partner reaches orgasm.

In San Antonio, Texas it is illegal to flirt.

It's illegal in Washington state to have sex with an animal weighing over 40 pounds.

Sex in a graveyard is illegal in North Carolina.

In Anniston, Alabama, if a woman loses a game of pool, it is illegal for her to settle her tab with sex.

In Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, it is illegal to have sex with a truck driver in a tollbooth.

In Cottonwood, Arizona, couples having sex in a vehicle with flat wheels will be fined. The fine will be doubled if the sex occurs in the backseat.

It is illegal for any member of the Nevada Legislature to conduct official business while wearing a penis costume while the legislature is in session.

You can streak in Louisiana as long as you can prove to a court beyond a doubt that you had no "lascivious intent."

Couples in Carlsbad, New Mexico, can have sex in their parked car during their lunch break, as long as the curtains are drawn.

No woman may have sex with a man while riding in an ambulance within the boundaries of Tremonton, Utah.  If caught, the woman can be charged with a sexual misdemeanor and "her name is to be published in the local newspaper."  The man isn't charged nor is his name revealed.

A Wisconsin prohibits sodomy or bestiality if it's "observable" by other people.
