Singapore confuses me. It’s without a doubt a country in Asia. But it also seems to be a city and a county. Its cleanliness is far above par to its neighboring countries and the architecture is comparable to Dubai.
So, what is confusing me?
Singapore has gained a good amount of attention from the uniqueness of their various laws and punishments. I knew even as a young teen, “don’t chew gum if you ever go to Singapore.” I stored that in the vault, thinking I would never need to access it again. Little did I know…
THESE LAWS CONFUSE ME. WHY WERE THEY MADE?
- Eating raw fish while lecturing on science is illegal.
- It is against the law to speak to a donkey in Chinese.
- It is illegal to urinate in an elevator.
- It’s illegal to carry a Bible or to talk to anyone about Jesus Christ.
- The sale of chewing gum is prohibited.
- WINNER FOR MOST MIND-BOGGLING – It is illegal to walk around in your own house naked.
- WINNER FOR BEST LAW EVER – If you are convicted of littering three times, you will have to clean the streets on Sundays with a bib on saying,” I am a litterer.” This will then be broadcasted on the local news.
I hope that last one is serious.
