Top 10 Tough Laws in the World
« on: October 03, 2009, 04:48:47 PM »
Ignorance is no defense Ė especially when it comes to ignorance of the laws in countries you plan to visit. While it may seem natural to study some of the general customs and laws in major foreign countries you might not expect, for example, to have to look for strange law changes in somewhere like Florida. Most places in the world are relatively easy to get along in. Some strange laws are nothing more than folklore. Every once in a while, though, youíre going to run into something a bit off the wall and itís important for you to be prepared in advance.
10. DONíT FEED THE PIGEONS (ITALY)
In Italy it is illegal to feed the pigeons. Ok, thatís a bit of a blanket statement. The rule actually has the potential to change from city to city. Make sure you leave the pigeons alone while youíre in Venice, though Ė the locals are tired of cleaning up pigeon poop. Youíll also want to avoid jumping into fountains, walking around without your shirt on (would you DO that as a tourist), and sitting on the sidewalk to eat your lunch. Fines range from a warning to monetary infractions anywhere from $50 to $600.
9. EATING IN PUBLIC (UNITED ARAB EMIRATES)
Before you leave for the United Arab Emirates youíll want to make sure you arenít visiting during Ramadan. During that time you are not allowed to eat or drink in public during fasting hours (ie. daylight hours) at all. Think weíre kidding? Tourists have been fined up to $275 for drinking juice in public. Avoid public displays of affection as well unless you want to spend a few months in jail.
8. DONíT PAY IN CHANGE (CANADA)
Ever have the urge to empty your piggy bank of quarters and run down to the corner store? Donít do it in Canada. The Currency Act of 1985 prohibits consumers from using unreasonable amounts of coins to pay for purchases. This means you canít pay for an item in all coins (especially if itís over $10). Even the use of dollar-coins is limited. The shop owner has the right to choose whether or not he wants to take your coins but doesnít have to.7. WASH YOUR CAR (MOSCOW)
In the beautiful city of Moscow it is illegal to drive a dirty car. The definition of dirty, however, is up in the air. Is a dirty car one on which you can draw pictures in the dust? Does it hide the license plate? Does it make the driver invisible? We suppose youíll find out if the police poll you over but the fines tend to be whatever the police decide to charge you Ė unless, of course, you offer him a bit of cash.6. LEAVE YOUR HEADLIGHTS ON (DENMARK)
Studies in Denmark have shown that vehicles with their headlights on are more noticeable by other drivers than those who have their headlights off. Youíd think this law would apply to night driving but it doesnít. Drivers here are required to leave their headlights on during the day as well or may face a fine of up to $100.
5. DONíT STOP ON THE AUTOBAHN (GERMANY)
Youíve heard of the Autobahn, right? The notorious German road where there are no speed limits? Make sure you fill your gas tank BEFORE you get on this daunting road. Itís illegal to pull over on the side of this road for any reason and, if you do, itís illegal to get out and walk. You are, after all, endangering the lives of the people who are still driving at warp speeds.
4. PUT YOUR SHIRT ON (THAILAND)
In Thailand it is illegal to drive a car or motorcycle without a shirt on Ė regardless of how hot it is that day. Punishments range from verbal warnings to tickets costing about $10. This is no joke Ė the local police will pull you over.
3. DONíT KISS YOUR LOVER GOODBYE (FRANCE AND ENGLAND)
Love died a little bit on April 5th of 1910. Lovers spend so much time kissing each other goodbye at train stations that trains were actually running late. The law is relatively old, though, and really isnít enforced today Ė in France, that is. In Warrington Bank Quay in England, however, youíll be asked to move your goodbyes to the ďkissing zone.Ē2. WEAR A COVER UP (GRENADA)
The folks at Grenada really do have a point. Cruisers visiting the beaches for day excursions have taken to strolling city streets in nothing but their bathing suits. In order to reign in a sense of decency, the city has instituted a fine for those who arenít wearing decent clothing off of the beaches. Fines can reach up to $270 but the local tourist boards would like you to believe that the law is not enforced. Perhaps its best to simply cover up rather than trying to find out for yourself.
1. NO GUM CHEWING (SINGAPORE)
Those with gum chewing habits may want to call it quits before heading to Singapore. The government really wants to keep the city clean and will fine you for chewing gum, feeding the birds (it causes poop) and forgetting to flush a public toilet. The only legal gum you can chew is Nicorette but you have to get it from a doctor and they will give your name to government officials to confirm youíre allowed to have a wad in your mouth. These arenít the only strange laws around the world but theyíre certainly worth noting. Make sure you do your research before leaving on your next trip. Better safe than sorry!

Safe And Comfortable Crib Mattresses
« Reply #7 on: April 16, 2012, 04:48:08 PM »
The first thing to do is to make sure that you choose a mattress that's the same size as the crib. Mattresses should ideally fit the crib dimensions exactly. After all, newborns don't have a lot of motor control, and can easily slip between the mattress and the crib side if the mattress is too small. Make sure the sleeping surface goes right up to the edge to prevent accidents of this kind. If your crib is an odd size, you may be able to cut a foam mattress to fit, or have a custom foam mattress made.

Some sort of rubbish store is a retail store that will sells second hand items effortlessly. A new low-quality traditional store might be highlighting with a useless shop.

Style world will not be only restricted to adult men's dresses and females wardrobes, however it has fantastic influence on boys clothes. Now lots of style designers are providing fantastic heed in creating dresses or suits for boys. However, there may be distinction between boys attire and adult males's attire in several value like routine, style, coloring and style.

How to Choose the Right Bodystocking
« Reply #10 on: May 03, 2012, 02:13:33 PM »
Lingerie and undergarments have gone through a sea change since the past few decades. While in the Victorian times it was quite rude to show even a bit of risquť clothing, over the decades, lingerie and undergarments have become part and parcel of lives, thanks to various celebrities and rockstars.
