Every country has its own law and orders, which are to be followed strictly. Laws in a country is meant for the betterment of the society. But in some counties some laws are so different that you will find it very strange. Here are some you might never heard.
1) Selling gum in Singapore
The chewing gum ban is just one of several laws to improve the cleanliness of the island, which includes laws against littering, graffiti and spitting.According to Singapore Law, the first-time penalty for the selling of gum can be as high as $100,000 or a prison sentence of up to two years.
Penalties are subject to rise with each conviction, but certain chewing gums that have medical benefits will be allowed. It is currently not illegal to chew gum in Singapore, merely to import it and sell it, apart from the aforementioned exceptions.
2) Stamps of Britian
One bonkers law is all to do with stamps , and you could get in serious trouble if you break it.
In the UK it is technically illegal to post a letter with the stamp upside down. The reason is the monarch – Queen Elizabeth II – is on the stamp.
Technically it’s considered an act of treason, which was usually punishable by death.Despite the UK repealing the death penalty in 1965, the punishment for treason was only changed from death to life imprisonment in 1998.
3) You can’t flush the toilet after 10pm in Switzerland
This one is apparently at the discretion of landlords who are allowed free reign to set their own rules on many things. You probably won’t be chucked in a jail cell but you could get a stern telling off, and nobody likes that. Strangely enough, this applies to men. Apparently, this heinous act causes too much noise and can disrupt other citizens during their allocated sleeping times. Gentlemen, take a seat.
4) Coffee Shop in Amsterdam
You are allowed to smoke weed in a coffee shop, but tobacco is forbidden because of the Dutch smoking ban. The city of Amsterdam has a policy to maintain a small-scale coffeeshop sector. Amsterdam can determine how many coffee shops are permitted to sell cannabis.
5) Parachute on Sundays in Florida
If you are an unmarried skydiving enthusiast, who happens to be a female, do not attempt to skydive on a Sunday. This seems to take marriage and sacred vows to a whole new level. Unmarried women that are caught committing this weird crime can face jail time and/or fines. There is no need to run out and get married, simply remain aware of the law
6) Dont get romantic in Dubai
Caught snogging in the park? Then you may face a short stretch in the slammer in the UAE, which takes a dim view of public displays of affection. There have been several arrests in recent years for kissing and petting in public, which is considered a violation of the country’s decency laws.
