Some information you could probably live without knowing

Post by Marie5656 »

Subject: Laws?



*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

In Lebanon, men are legally allowed to have sex with animals, but the

animals must be female. Having sexual relations with a male animal is

punishable by death.

(Like THAT makes sense.)



*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

In Bahrain, a male doctor may legally examine a woman's genitals, but is

prohibited from looking directly at them during the examination. He may

only see their reflection in a mirror.

(Do they look different reversed?)



*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Muslims are banned from looking at the genitals of a corpse. This also

applies to undertakers. The sex organs of the deceased must be covered

with a brick or piece of wood at all times.



(A brick?)



*~*~**~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is decapitation.

(Much worse than "going blind!")



*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

There are men in Guam whose full-time job is to travel the countryside and

deflower young virgins, who pay them for the privilege of having sex for

the first time. Reason: under Guam law, it is expressly forbidden for

virgins to marry.

(Let's just think for a minute; is there any job anywhere else in the

world that even comes close to this?)



*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

In Hong Kong, a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her adulterous

husband, but may only do so with her bare hands. The husband's illicit

lover, on the other hand, may be killed in any manner desired.

(Ah! Justice!)



*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Topless saleswomen are legal in Liverpool, England - but only in tropical

fish stores.



(But of course!)



*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

In Cali, Colombia, a woman may only have sex with her husband, and the

first time this happens, her mother must be in the room to witness the

act.

(Makes one shudder at the thought)





*~*~*~*~**~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

In Santa Cruz, Bolivia, it is illegal for a man to have sex with a woman

and her daughter at the same time.

(I presume this was a big enough problem that they had to pass this law?)



*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

In Maryland, it is illegal to sell condoms from vending machines with one

exception: Prophylactics may be dispensed from a vending machine only "in

places where alcoholic beverages are sold for consumption on the

premises."

(Is this a great country or what? Well . .. not as great as Guam!)



*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour.

(Who volunteers for this stuff?)







*~*~ *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure.

(Is that why Flipper was always smiling?)



*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

The ant can lift 50 times its own weight, can pull 30 times its own weight

and always falls over on its right side when intoxicated.

(From drinking little bottles of?)

(Did the government pay for this research??)



*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Butterflies taste with their feet.

(Ah, geez.)



*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.

(I know some people like that.)



*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Starfish don't have brains.

(I know some people like that, too.)



*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

And, the best for last?



Turtles can breathe through their butts.

(And I thought I had bad breath in the morning!)

Bullet's trial was a farce. Can I get an AMEN?????


We won't be punished for our sins, but BY them.

Hmm. I lived on Guam for 4 years and never heard of such a thing.
