    The dumb laws in Denmark

    Before starting your car you are required to check lights, brakes, steering and honk your horn. You also need to make a visual check to make sure there are no children underneath the car.

    If your vehicle stalls and you leave it on the side of the road, you must mark the vehicle with a red, reflecting triangle. This equipment is only mandatory when the car stalls, not at any other times, however.

    If a horse drawn carriage is trying to pass a car and the horse becomes uneasy, the owner of the car is required to pull over and if necessary, cover the car.

    Attempt to escape from prison is not illegal, however, if one he is caught he is required to serve out the remainder of his term.

    No one may start a car while someone is underneath the vehicle.

    Encrypting data files, owning, distributing etc. of encryption programs and creating such programs for any electronic medias is now against the law in Denmark due to fear for terrorists, left and right wing extremist, fundamentalists and distributors of illegal pornography.

    Headlights must be on whenever a vehicle is being operated in order to distinguish it from parked cars.

    When driving, you must have someone in front of your car with a flag to warn horse drawn carriages that a motorcar is coming.

    Any carport added to a building increases the value of the building by 15.5 times the cost of building the addition.

    There is a penalty of 20kr (~2,5$) for not reporting when a person has died.

    In the UK it is illegal to "Riotously demolish a hovel", taxi drivers are required to cary a bail of hay at all times, and you can pee in police mans helmet if there are no public toilets about.

    Read the "blue laws" we have here (why do they call them "blue", anyway?). They're just old stuff that nobody ever bothered to take off the books. (In Europe? I dunno). ???

    10. By law, every child in Belgium must take harmonica lessons at Primary school.

    If the person succeeds in escaping does that mean they get to go free? well, they are not breaking any laws by escaping?

    Not even on of those old un-revoked laws, that no-one takes notice of? Damn, I liked that one.



    I forgot it's legal to shoot a Welshman with a bow and arrow somewhere in Chester, and a Frenchman on a Jersey beach.

    Here's a weird military law: if you commit adultery, you can go to federal prison! No where else in America can you go to jail for adultery. You know them adulterers...they'ze dangerous criminals!

    Now, the law was written to establish a sense of order and discipline, plus to stop higher ranking people from taking advantage of lower ranking people (and their spouses), but come on, a feloney!?

    Oh well. Since I don't plan on committing an adulterous act, I don't have to worry about it.
