10 Weird Things Prohibited Around the World

3. You can’t rescue the drowning

The mysterious mentality of the East couldn’t have left the laws of China untouched. One of them says that rescuing drowning people is illegal.

This law is connected with the Eastern philosophy stating that tampering with a person’s fate is immoral. However, skeptics think the Chinese authorities just try to control the population with this regulation.

4. It’s illegal to kiss at train stations

This law is effective both in France and some stations in the UK: lovers are prohibited from kissing at railway stations.

It first appeared in France in 1910, when trains were often delayed by couples who didn’t want to part. As a result, the authorities banned kissing at platforms but still made special “kissing zones” where lovers may take a moment of tenderness.
