    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.



    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.

    The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is decapitation.


    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.



    In Hong Kong , a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her adulterous husband, but may only do so with her bare hands.
    The husband's illicit lover, on the other hand, may be killed in any manner desired.




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



    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.


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


    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.'



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



    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.



    Butterflies taste with their feet.



    An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.



    Starfish don't have brains.


    Turtles can breathe through their butts.

    I believe that most of these have been debunked or found to be very very very old laws which have not been on the books for a very long time.

    I'm Canadian, I couldn't tell you every Canadian law.

    They just all seem very...contrived. Almost like there is more to each thing but they way they are said makes them sound worse than they are.

    Fine Kim, I don't care. Its true. Everything on the internet is true.

    Nothing against Linda, but just because she is from there, doesn't mean she knows everything about it. Again, do you thing everyone in Canada knows every law here?

    It's also illegal to have a hippo in the bathtub in Canada. (it's been a while since I read the book about crazy Canadian laws so I don't know if it's only 1 province or all of Canada.)

    Just to clarify, I was in Lebanon at the time(1998) and I lived in a place in the mountains where donkeys are around everywhere. I was sitting with a bunch of cousins and they were telling me about it. And yes it is an old law, I have no idea if it still exists, but it's there.

    so you hanging out in a field and you say something like "look at all those donkeys" and they are like "yeah the are a ton, but we can only have sex with half of them."? :lol

    No :lol: Its hard to explain, the night before donkeys woke up everyone cause they were having sex. And its like a stadium... a field in the middle and everyone's balconies all around. So at 4 in the morning all the neighbors were out and we could see the two owners pulling the donkeys off of each other. So the next day, I was told the story. I was convinced it's true, but hey who knows. There are a lot of weird laws in the middle east. :hmpf:
