So many countries around the world have a ton of centuries-old laws that are still in effect today even though most of them are utterly ridiculous.

Remember the old gag where you would tie a string to a dollar bill and pull it when someone tried to pick it up? If you do this in Pennsylvania, you could be facing a hefty fine.

Iowa

If you have an awesome mustache and want to kiss someone in public, it is totally against the law in Iowa. Your beloved facial hair could get you in a ton of trouble.

Utah

If you have a thing for your cousin and want to get married, all you have to do is wait until you are 65 years old. Then, it is legal in Utah to freely marry your family members. We are guessing it is because you are past the age of making babies if you are a woman, so there are no inbred abominations being born into the family.

Switzerland

If you live in Switzerland, you won't be able to take that late night dump after 10 pm. If you even try to flush, you will risk having the coppers knocking on your door and ruining your night.

One of the funniest, weird laws comes from Florida. You are not allowed to fart after 6 pm on Thursdays, in public. Not only will you get an earful from anyone who witnessed your crime, but the police might just handcuff you on the spot.

England

One day you're at the House of Parliament in England, just chilling out with your fellow lawmakers and politicians. Suddenly you suffer a fatal heart attack and drop dead where you stand. Guess what? What you did is totally illegal - which means you are now dead to rights.

Here is one that the ladies will love. In Samoa, it is illegal for a husband to forget his wife's birthday. So, you can expect to have a timely, thoughtful celebration for every year that you are married, or else.
