    People do strange things, therefore weird laws are written to help straighten them out. Some of these bizarre laws almost seem like urban myths or too ridiculous to be real, yet odd as they are, they were created for a reason. Some of these laws date back several hundred years and were never changed or eliminated and make very little sense in today’s world, but nonetheless these weird laws found all around world do exists.

    • In Afghanistan, the Taliban banned women from wearing white socks, for fear men might find them attractive.

    • In Texas, if you are going to commit a crime, you legally have to give 24 hours notice to the Police.

    • In Lebanon men are allowed to engage in sexual intercourse with female animals. If caught with a male animal the punishment is death.

    • In England, it is an act of treason to place a postage stamp bearing Queen upside down.

    • In Indonesia, the punishment for masturbation is death by decapitation.

    • In Bahrain, male doctors only legally examine a woman’s genitals through a mirror.

    • In England, it is illegal to die in the House of Parliament.

    • In Eureka, Nevada, if you have a moustache, it is against the law for you to kiss a woman.
