Don’t laws and regulations sound drastic and serious? Well, they are. But it might come as a shock to you that there are many laws in many different countries that will surely make you go ‘what the hell’ or you end being even more struck. These rules aren’t much life-changing yet hold importance, at least in that particular country.
So here are 23 weird laws from around the world
Don’t you dare step out of your house without wearing underwear, the Thailand police will not forgive you for it.

6. The USA
If you have some urgent urge to clean your neighbor’s car, kindly restrict yourself from doing so in Los Angeles, it is illegal.
Remember when siblings use to marry each other to keep their bloodline running? It is something that won’t be a problem today, and Argentina went to the extra step for ensuring this. Here, it is made illegal for two brothers/sisters to marry each other. WOW.
In some of the places in Africa, it is very much crucial to ask permission from the government to watch the news. How will they be updated?
It is forbidden to forget your wife’s birthday in Samoa. Okay, now a rule that should be driven in every country, say all the wives.
The government in Denmark has officially permitted a set of 7000 names. Everyone needs to name their child (or themselves) according to the particular name out of these 7000. If you want to name something out of these 7000 permitted names, you have to ask for permission. Another one from Denmark – women are not allowed to wear wigs here.
You can only and only have sex in dark in the country of Budapest. No comments!

13. North Carolina
Sorry, bad singers, North Carolina will not allow you to sing off-note.
Canadians are not so much of noise-lovers. You can’t really make a loud noise in Canada and whistling is banned too. Wonder how our Punjabis settled there.

You are not allowed to kiss on the train. Yes, yes, not even ‘French’ kiss. You can do all the kissing before the train arrives though.
In some states of India, if you are found pimping then you are punished, even if you are engaged in prostitution (mainly women). Well, well, well, are we still thinking that women can not have sex by their own choice? And men are the only force of action in prostitution? Come on!
Another one that is not funny, really. It is TOTALLY fine for a married partner to force the other partner for sex. Consent is not a thing in India if you are married.
Remember how there is a whole panel of requests for people to vote in various countries, Egypt doesn’t really request for it. It is compulsory to vote or else you are charged with a fine in Egypt.
