A dumb list for dumb laws:

Australia
1. Children may not purchase cigarettes, but can smoke them.
2. You may never leave your car keys in an unattended vehicle.
3. It is illegal to roam the streets wearing black clothes, felt shoes and black shoe polish on your face as these items are the tools of a cat burglar.

England
1. Those wishing to use a television must apply for a license.
2. It is illegal to leave baggage unattended.
3. Picking up abandoned baggage is as act of terrorism.



France
1. Between the hours of 8AM and 8PM, 70% of the music in the radio must be by French composers.

Thailand
1. It is illegal to leave your house if you are not wearing underwear.
2. You must wear a shirt while driving a car.
3. You must pay a fine of $600 in Thailand if you're caught throwing away chewed bubblegum on the sidewalk. If you do not pay the fine, you are jailed.
4. No one may step on any of the nation's currency.

Many of the laws are actually followed. The question is, would you follow them, or just regard them as a joke?
