Lists of Messed up Laws of the World

It was last June when I went to Singapore and one of the very interesting that caught my attention was its silly Laws. 

For example its Illegal to chew chewing gums there. Then you may not walk around your home nude as it is considered as “Pornographic”. Then the failure to flush a public toilet after use could result in very hefty fines.

Key word here : FINES.

Do not think for a second that your can get away with  because the Video Cameras is everywhere there. Like a survailence area. Sooner or later you will be caught. Your lucky if you can get away with it.

That is no wonder why Singapore is dubbed as The Fine City of Asia.

Don’t get me wrong I love Singapore and I think because of these laws it made Singapore the unique country it is.

But those are just abit part of the messed up laws. Below are some unbelievable laws are that are imposed in some parts of the world. Take note I did not make this one up, ask the judge and law makers who did so.

  10. Hello blogger, i found this post on 12 spot in google’s search
    results. I’m sure that your low rankings are caused by high bounce rate.
    This is very important ranking factor. One of the biggest reason for high
    bounce rate is due to visitors hitting the back button. The higher your bounce rate the further down the search results your posts and pages will end up, so
    having reasonably low bounce rate is important for increasing your rankings naturally.
    There is very useful wp plugin which can help you. Just search in google for:

    Seyiny’s Bounce Plugin
