Walking on the rope

Hello Everyone!

(Note: Please review the very first introduction post before reading any of updates in this website.)

This article and the next shall focus on 2 great bridges across the world.

Well, this is about a bridge made of only ropes all around. Located on the outskirts of North Ireland, the bridge is called Carrick – A – Redy bridge and is built in County Andrim. The bridge links the mainland to the Carrickarede place in Ireland.

The term carrickarede literally means rock of the casting.

History

The bridge was made by fishermen of Ireland who used to do fishing during June to September to move along. Yet, these days they do not use the same. The reason is decrease in fish population in Irish river Bann and Bush.

Nevertheless the bridge remains a mystery for various tourists worldwide and is a place for attraction for many. Presently, it is owned and maintained by the National Trust of Ireland.

Statistics

The bridge spans around 100 feet in height above sea level and little more than 65 feet in length.

Not only this, but the tourist base is growing exponentially since 2005.

Also, scientists worldwide have decided to research on this area and explore its rich flora and fauna. It is also considered a center of volcanic exploration in Norther Ireland. Several erosions and explosions were noted in that place and this was agreed by various scientists.

So, wish to go there? Well, this is a nice place to visit at least once.

What a law!

Hello Everyone!

(Note: Please review the very first introduction post before reading any of updates in this website.)

This post is about Iowa. Iowa is a state in United State. It is a city of great geographical beauties because both the Eastern and Western borders are formed by rivers, yet a city of various unknown things.

This post speaks about one complicated law. It just states that a man having moustache can never kiss any woman in public. Yes, it might sound complicated but is a reality. It is allowed for a man without any moustache to kiss a woman in public but not for a man having one.

You might wonder the logic. Well, it is very simple. Women might shout because women in that country don’t like the touch of moustache. Well, a man having moustache can kiss a girl in home. The law only bans public kissing.

This is a really surprising rule. The rule seems containing various loopholes. After all, who bans public kissing but allows private kissing for same individual?

While some Americans have got up against this rule, some argue that this does not exist. The reality is that there is no documentation to this rule yet this is to be followed in practice.

If this does not surprise you enough, then let me tell you that even winking at another lady is not allowed. Any violation of this rule will neither get you fined nor busted but still you could be insulted.

Just for your information, strange rules regarding love making form an integral part of American lives. For example, in Colorado, you can never kiss a sleeping lady.

So, if you want to celebrate love making in America, it is better and always recommended to take a close look at the local laws.

 

Count your coins

Hello Everyone!

(Note: Please review the very first introduction post before reading any of updates in this website.)

This post is a bit complicated. It is about a really strange and complicated law in Canada. The law limits the usage of coins in a tender. It is strange to know coin limited in a tender. Well, that is a part of the Canadian Currency Act of 1985.

The coins are defined under Point No. 7(1) and 7(2) and the usage is defined under section 8(1) and 8(2) of the law.

Coin structure

As per the section 7(2) of the Act, the coin to be used should not be bent or mutilated or defaced. It shall be considered illegal if it is made to be reduced in weight.

The coin is defined as current under Royal Canadian Mint Act.

The limitations

As per section 8(1), only current coins could be used as coins in currency. The only other accepted currency is official notes issued by the Bank of Canada.

Section 8(2) describes the limitations of coins in detail.

  1. If the value of the coin is 1 cent, then those cannot be used in tender involving more than 25 cents.
  2. If the value of the coin is 5 cents, then those cannot be used in tender involving more than 5 dollars.
  3. If the value of the coin is between 10 cents and less than 1 dollars, then those cannot be used in tender involving more than 10 dollars.
  4. If the value of the coin is 1 dollar, then those cannot be used in tender involving more than 25 dollars.
  5. If the value of the coin is between 2 dollars and 10 dollars, then those cannot be used in tender involving more than 40 dollars.
  6. If the value of the coin is more than 10 dollars, then those cannot be used more than once in any tender and that tender should not have value more than that coin.
  7. If more than one amount is to be payable on the same day, then the total of all amounts shall be considered.
  8. There is no limitation on usage of notes.

No one really knows the reason behind implementing those limitations.

 

 

Check your modem

Hello Everyone!

(Note: Please review the very first introduction post before reading any of updates in this website.)

Internet! We all know that it is an interesting and really helpful tool. In today’s advanced cyber world, if you happen to meet someone who does not has an internet modem, you are likely to call him a nomad OR an uncivilized barbarian.

GOD often works in a balance. Good is always accompanied by a bad and fraudster means could be developed to hinder the growth of a really helpful technology and internet is not an exception to this rule. Due to this, possibility of deception has also increased in the usage of internet. We shall study the repercussions of that in detail. This post is about Burma. Also known as Myanmar, Burma is a South East Asian country and shares direct border with India and Bangladesh, China and Thailand.

The law in place here is called as anti – modem law and is simply stated as:

Using internet modem without official permission can lead to a prison term of up to 15 years.

Yes, that is true. By law, you need to get your internet modem censored. Well, this is not enough. Burma has implemented self – censorship in internet usage. However, that does not include anonymous commenting on blogs.

The purpose of implementing anti modem laws is to put a check on unauthorized access. The Burmese believe that they can catch the criminals of internet this way and can make the cyberworld better.

Due to such restrictions in place, internet market in Burma is getting limited. Only 5.5 hundred thousand were able to use internet as of June 2012 and that is only 1% of the Burmese population. Several reforms to boost internet market in the country are in place. Trials of Fiber To The Home (FTTH) are also happening

How are you?

Hello Everyone!

(Note: Please review the very first introduction post before reading any of updates in this website.)

This rule is strange and often considered a dangerous attitude of Hungary. Majority of people are having a bad temper. Before I begin, would like to apologize if any Hungarian feels bad in the process. This is not my belief, rather an observation of various tourists.

While I am not saying anything bad against the general public but their attitude is often suspicious by nature. The reality is that they are straight forward. So, they do not hide anything and whatever be the truth – good OR bad, they will disclose the same.

Due to this attitude, people find it really difficult to talk any general thing with Hungarians. They are so blunt that they will tell on your face the fact.

Many Asians and Americans have disliked this attitude but the bitter truth is that you have to get used to it, either today OR tomorrow.

I remember people asking – “How are you?” (Hope there is nothing bad and disliking in this question) and the Hungarian ended up complaining them of their style of asking this question. The question does not end in providing a standard answer – “I am good. You say”. Rather, the response could be complaining too. The Hungarians are blunt and straightforward.

Cases are reported when a native Hungarian is greeted – Good Morning! And the response was a shout – my morning is not good, a thief broke into my house yesterday night. You better mind your own business.

Theories have emerged. Many think that this is due to several invasions these people witnessed. Well, these are only guesses and no real proof exists.

Some really strange Hungarian shocks to Americans

So, if you wish to greet any native Hungarian, either check his temper OR be ready to get a shock.

 

Slap means good health

Hello Everyone!

(Note: Please review the very first introduction post before reading any of updates in this website.)

You might be confused on reading the title. How can a slap be linked with health? What could be scientific facts behind this practice? Well no one really knows. Not even those who follow this. Let us look at it in detail.

Introduction

The country is Albania. I won’t discuss the geography involved; I think you already know that. It is a tradition in Albania that after completing the haircut, you will be slapped at neck once. They say – this is for your health. The Albanian word is “me shëndet” which means “on your health”

This is the tradition followed by local public of Albania. People in health sector training follow this practice on general basis. Albania seems to be quite serious about health, that they can do anything and everything provided that guarantees health even if there is no scientific rule defining the working of that slap. It’s an interesting lesson that I took back home with me. As for myself, I started taking my mental health more seriously. I would get sad or anxious, perhaps signifying depression, and I would shrug it off. Life is fast-paced and you can stow those things away for a quite a while before they get bad enough. I don’t do that anymore obviously. There are cbd products I take regularly that have helped me so much, and I’m doing much better now. Here you can learn more about a dispensary ontario oregon if you think you might want to try this as a potential option or solution for yourself. It worked for me, but allow me to state the obvious: seeing any kind of general physician or specialist is also a great way to get started.

For example, the Albanians keep on watering their roads because they think that this will increase their health. You will notice water paved around everywhere on streets. Again, there is no scientific proof behind this practice and its linking with health. Some people do have commented that this practice is against health as it can breed mosquitoes. There is no one to really listen to them.

While such weird traditions exist in multitude in the country, the point to be noted is that no one cares whether you – the outspoken international knowledgeable traveller will like this OR not. After all, you cannot dare to change their culture. Right?

So, next time during your visit to Albania, if you notice a big tight slap on your neck after haircut, don’t complain. No one will listen to you. Get used to it.

Thou shall kill a cheating husband

Hello Everyone!

(Note: Please review the very first introduction post before reading any of updates in this website.)

After understanding a funny law in Hong Kong, let us see another.

Introduction

Many people comment that marriages are made in heaven. Yet, this need not be true every time. There are some marriages which are made in hell not heaven. The cases of extra marital affairs are known to everyone.

In order to check this problem, Hong Kong has implemented husband killing rule. As per the rule, a woman is eligible to completely kill her husband if she finds her husband is a cheater. However, she cannot use anything other than her hands for this.

If she wants to kill that other lady, that is also allowed. While you can kill your husband using your hands, you don’t have any such limitation while killing your husband’s girlfriend.  She could be killed in any manner liked by the wife.

Murder is not always recommended. Sometimes, by law, you might be satisfied by getting a monetary compensation as well. This compensation involved up to half the money the husband gave to the other woman. Considering this rule, many wives filed a petition to get the desired compensation.

Making deception in marriage punishable by murder seems really odd. But, this is a fact which cannot be answered easily. Well, also if the woman wants to neither file the petition for compensation nor kill her husband, she even has the right to send her husband to the labour camps as a working candidate for 2 years.

The law has brought many ups and downs in Hong Kong society and is indeed alarming for a vast majority of cheater husbands in Hong Kong. This is a really important rule everybody needs to know particularly those who marry in Hong Kong.

Get your song approved

Hello Everyone!

(Note: Please review the very first introduction post before reading any of updates in this website.)

This post is about Hong Kong – a country of its weirdest laws. After all, this country made procuring license for dog owners a mandatory aspect by law and also banned skates and prohibited the use of any obscene language (including foul language, shouting and abuses) in Ocean Park. Not only this, but Hong Kong government had also banned the use of T Shirts with any logo which can make them wonder them of triad membership. Any violation of these rules is punishable by imprisonment for a definite period of time.

Keeping in mind, the great aspects of Hong Kong weird laws, this article and the next will focus on the 2 most important yet funny laws of the republic of Hong Kong.

The law

If you go with the Hong Kong legislation, it is mentioned that you need a written permission / official approval from the government and the legal bodies if you want to sing a song on any bathing beach in the country.

If you plan to violate the rule, you could be sent to prison for approximately two weeks. There are many people who had been sent to prison due to his mistake.

The repercussions

The above mentioned rule came into existence almost 5 decades ago. The real purpose of implementation is not known yet, but this rule forms a part of safety at the beach law in Hong Kong. You might wonder how singing is related to safety at beach. That I leave onto you to find out by yourself.

Since, the real reason is not clearly identifiable, it becomes obvious that the rule is to be blindly followed and taking a note of the same as a precaution is always recommended.

 

Check your walking side

Hello Everyone!

(Note: Please review the very first introduction post before reading any of updates in this website.)

Australia is a place for various innovations and funny laws. It is that country which legalized electric bulb repair from only the licensed electrician. Not only this, but Victoria has prohibited wearing pink pants on a Sunday during Mid day.

Australia seems really funny. One such funny law is that they decide where and how should you walk on road. By law, it is required to walk on only the left side of the road. The rule applies to footpath as well. Well, if you are found violating this law, you might be fined OR sent to jail. Hence, you should not walk on the right side on the footpath as well.

Now, you might wonder why this rule is implemented. Who is the government to decide where and how should we walk on the footpath? Well, if this is what you are thinking, you will be punished for treason. Aussies take their governments seriously and any attempt to insult governments could be dangerous.

Though this is not documented in the constitution, you will hear this in the speeches by the government and will also sometimes notice this in the newspapers. Don’t be confused. This is true.

Some other funny rules include:

  • Children are not allowed to purchase cigarettes and alcohol however the law does not ban them from using them. So, if a child wants to use alcohol purchased by his father, he is not banned by the law.
  • Leaving the car keys in an unattended vehicle is not allowed. The Aussies have a law for this as well.
  • It is mandatory for all bars to have a stable. Not only this, but they should also feed the horses of their patrons.
  • Owning AK47 was not illegal. They are planning to cancel this law but this isn’t guaranteed.

Which animal are you?

Hello Everyone!

(Note: Please review the very first introduction post before reading any of updates in this website.)

After analyzing ghostly superstition of China, I move onto a second belief – finding the animal within. Thou this is not a superstition but a funny belief as well.

Remember 12 Zodiac sun signs – starting from Aries till Pisces? Both East and West loves to see astrology related to these 12 zodiacs. Well, China too has astrology related to 12 signs. Unlike normal astrology which contains mixture (Taurus is an animal, Pisces is a marine creature, Cancer is an insect, Aquarius is a water carrying utensil etc.), Chinese zodiacs contain only land animals / reptiles.

Here are they:

Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragons, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig.

Each animal / reptile is associated with a year starting from 1900. Year 1900 belongs to rats, 1901 to ox, and so on. The cycle repeats every 12 years. Those who are born in January / February need to check the New Year in Chinese terms and guess accordingly. Thus, it is easy to guess your personality from the animal list mentioned above.

Now, comes the question: what is really weird in this? Well, if you happen to visit China, especially its villages, you must know which animal are you because you will find many people asking this question. You cannot easily manage without knowing the animal. Chinese consider these as auspicious and use this rule to judge your personality and this data is used to deal with you. If you act as if you do not know, then that might go against you.

Here is a simple guide which can not only help you find your animal but also know your personality in detail from the Chinese perspective.

Well, I am a horse. Who are you?
