How could you have lived so long without this information???
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 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? 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 strongest muscle in the body is the tongue. (Hummm....I won't touch THAT one!)
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 govt. pay for this research??)
Butterflies taste with their feet.
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.
(Do you think they have bad breath?).
