Even if you ended up studying law, you wouldn’t know many of these prohibitions from around the world.
They are so absurd that sometimes it is worth asking why anyone bothered outlawing these things… perhaps they were regular occurrences?
1. In California, you cannot ride a bike in a swimming pool.
2. In Utah it is illegal to carry a violin in a paper bag.
3. In New York it is prohibited to jump from buildings. The penalty for this offence is… the death penalty!
4. In the town of Maine you cannot… tickle women under the chin with a feather duster!
