Ever been stuck in another country and suddenly come to the realisation that this mundane task might in fact, be illegal? You don’t live there, so you wouldn’t know how they roll. If the aforementioned has occurred, I suggest you get yourself tested, because the thing between your ears is missing. Newton’s laws aside, every different jurisdiction has similar laws. Every country seems to have, at the very least, a few universal laws. Murder, robbery, indecent exposure, Murphy’s and public fornication laws are commonplace worldwide.
Despite this, there must a reason why every young adult wants to travel to Amsterdam. I’ll solve this for you. Amsterdam has no fun police, unlike most contemporary societies. Amsterdam’s laws encourage semi naked women in windows and other morally frowned upon past times. But where else can we have such fun? A quiet note, some laws discussed in the article are not intended to be racist, please do not be offended. Let this be your guide to what you can and can’t do in Australia, Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
Before we jet off overseas, let’s start with the homeland. If you own a horse, head on down to your local bar, because Australian bars are required to be able to stable, water and feed horses of their patrons. Legitimately, that’s actually a law. Wearing hot pink pants after midday on Sunday, in the amazing state that is Victoria, is also punishable by law. Unfortunately, not by death. Nevertheless, indie kids, beware. Having an object of disguise without a lawful excuse is also illegal. I’m sure police understand that spelunking is always undertaken in morph suits, but if you’re not a skier, ditch the balaclava.
