We are not the only country in the world with some ridiculous laws, we are not even on the list. These laws are not something which was written for catapulting convicts, they’ve caused legal trouble for people in this century. Enjoy!

You Cant Make Noise On Sunday- Germany

   

As the population of Germany is high about 82 million people, but the size of Germany is very small. This means that Germany has lots of people crammed in very limited space.  What happens when we have lot of people in limited space, that is lot of noise.

So Germany has come up with a law called  ‘Ruhezeit’ meaning ‘Rest Time’, during this time none of them should make noise. The times varies depending on the which state you live in but the general Ruhezeit time is 8:00–10:00 PM until 6:00 AM the next day. Some states also observe Ruhezeit between 1:00 PM and 3:00 PM every afternoon. However, all states observe Ruhezeit during the whole of Sundays and public holidays.

During the ‘Ruhezeit’ time they are not allowed  to mow their lawns, rev their cars, play loud music, or even use the washing machine if they live in an apartment.

 

Connecting To Someone else’s WI-FI – Singapore

     

Connecting to someone’s else’s WI-FI without their permission is a huge offence in Singapore. It can even land you in jail for 3 years and fine of 10,000 Singapore Dollars.  The law is part of Singapore’s Computer Misuse and Cybersecurity Act, which considers such behavior as hacking.

The first case was registered in 2006. a 17 year old Garyl Tan Jia Luo became the first person to be arrested and prosecuted. As he was underage he was not sent to jail instead he got 18 months probation time, and during the probation time he has to be at home and not use internet.

Getting Drunk in a Bar – Alaska

   

Enjoying the weekend and getting sloshed out in Alaska might land you in jail. Bar is the only only place people go to get drunk but not in Alaska. The government of Alaska introduced this law because the crime committed is mostly by drunks.

Alaskan cops took to enforcing the law in 2012. Plainclothes police officers visited random bars to find drunk patrons. Once they suspected someone was drunk, they called other cops to make the arrest. Bartenders weren’t spared, either, since they could also be arrested for selling alcohol to a drunk person.

They would only arrest people who were vomiting, falling from stools and creating nuisance.

 

Chewing Gum – Singapore

   

Chewing Gums are baned in Singapore Since 1992 by then Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew. The law was passed because people were fond of sticking the chewing gum  pavement and train doors. This often created problems, especially on the train doors.

And later in 2004 Singapore relaxed the ban when the government permitted pharmacists and dentists to sell medical chewing gum. This means chewing gum lovers need a medical prescription to buy gum.

 

Marrying Against Your Parents Will -France

   

In November 2010, Frenchman Stephane Sage was hours away from tying the knot with his Hong Kong girlfriend, Man Sin Ma (also called Mandy), when his parents ruled against the marriage. Sage’s parents were able to cancel the wedding because of an old French law passed in 1803 that allowed parents and grandparents to overrule the wedding of their children and grandchildren.

Originally, Sage’s parents claimed they opposed the marriage because Mandy was only marrying their son to gain French nationality. In court, they claimed Mandy was a Chinese spy. The court determined that Sage could marry Mandy, since his parents had no tangible reason for opposing the marriage.
