being a second year law student at college i always find it interesting finding out stupid laws from different countries. In chester, england, you are allowed to shoot a welshman in the head with a cross bow if they are within the city walls after midnight*… we always used to try to get my welsh tech teacher… and if you knock on somebodies door in glasgow and ask to use the toilet by law they have to let you. There’s another one about pushing moose out of planes over canada but i think that that’s pretty much a no no everywhere. Anyone else no any good laws?
*disclaimer- this is a very old law and would not work as a defense in court… but if you’ve got a crossbow handy and some spare time on you hands… you can’t blame a person for having a hobby
A couple years ago I was watching the news and they interviewed the guys that run the Dumb Laws website. In the interview, they showed where and hwo they get their information, so I believe the laws. Plus, the site also gives the puishment and citation number so it is easy to look up the laws you don’t belive.
