13 Strange Laws That Will Blow Your Mind
Rules can be broken, but not laws. Strange laws were written to stop people from doing strange things. While some got removed over the passing years, there are some bizzare laws that still exist for unknown reasons. Whether or not people abide by them, these unrealistic and senseless laws remain in the books of the government. Here are a few strange laws from across the world that will give you a shock.
1) In Samoa, it’s a crime to forget your own wife’s birthday.
2) Women in Japan are legally obliged to wear bras in air-conditioned buildings as their hard nipples can get men aroused.
