Some bizarre laws from around the world

The Daily Mail recently had an article on some bizarre laws being enforced around the world. Here are a few of them: CAN’T FLUSH A TOILET AFTER 10 PM: Apparently, it’s illegal to flush a toilet in an apartment building in Switzerland after 10 pm, because it is considered noise pollution. Some landlords even impose restrictions on no flushing between 10 pm and 7 am. MUST WALK DOG: If you own a dog in Turin, Italy, you must walk them at least three times a day, according to a law passed by the city council. DON’T SHARE ALCOHOLIC DRINKS WITH MOOSE: In Fairbanks, Alaska it is illegal to feed alcohol to Moose. Apparently, a moose, who was later named Buzzwinkle, went on a rampage in 2007 after getting into some alcohol at a local brewer. DON’T RIDE COWS WHILE INTOXICATED: Based on legislation passed in 1872, it’s still illegal for an intoxicated person to ride a cow in Scotland. DON’T BUILD SAND CASTLES: It has been illegal since 2016, for anyone to build sandcastles on …

Video: Little girl cries because she doesn’t have ‘lines’ like her mom

A cute little video on TikTok shows a young girl crying. When Vic Cross asked her daughter why she is crying, she explained it is because she doesn’t have lines like her mom and dad. When mom asks what lines, the daughter points to the wrinkles on her mom’s forehead. There was a funny comment on the Daily Mail about the video, explaining “When we were a small family, my sister used to cry most of the day because I and my brother both had a brother and a sister and she only had two brothers.” READ: ‘I haven’t got lines!’: Adorable video shows a young girl crying to her mother – because she wants wrinkles like her parents

Video: Pro-life sign fights back and keeps standing

A man was walking past the Church of the Resurrection School in Lansing, Michigan, which had a pro-life sign opposing Michigan’s pro-abortion bill, Proposal 3. Seeing the sign, the man veered towards it and gives it a good kick, sending it flying into the air. Expecting, he had knocked it down, the man continued walking oblivious to what actually happened. In an incredible athletic move, the sign manages to keep standing. Proposal 3, being voted on in a state-wide referendum vote on Nov 8, would protect abortions in that state after the Roe vs Wade ruling. However, pro-life opponents state the proposal would actually expand abortion. According to a statement on Michigan Catholic College website: “It [Proposal 3] would allow abortions to be performed by anyone, at any point in pregnancy, and for any reason. It would throw away state laws regulating quality, safety, and inspections for abortion clinics. It would remove parental consent requirement for teens seeking abortions, and also teens seeking gender reassignment surgeries.” “This amendment would take Michigan far beyond what was …

Famous abstract art hung upside down for 75 years

Apparently, a famous painting by abstract artist, Piet Mondrian has been hanging upside down for the past 75 years. The Dutch artist created the picture, by putting strips of black, blue, red, and yellow adhesive tape on canvas in 1941. The artwork called New York City 1 is currently part of the collection of the German state of North Rhine-Westaphalia in Dusseldorf. An expert has recently concluded that the artwork, which has hung in galleries and museums around the world since 1945, is being displayed upside down. Now to be fair, they can’t be absolutely certain, since the famous artist died in 1944. But this guess is based on a similar adhesive tape painting that Mondrian constructed that is apparently hanging the other way. Of course, it is entirely possible this other painting is upside down, and New York City 1 is being displayed properly. Whatever the case, New York City 1 will not be hung the other way because of fears this could destroy the abstract art constructed of now dried-up adhesive tape. READ: …

Did the New York Times see a conspiracy theory one day too early?

UPDATE NOV 10, 2022: California has dropped all charges against Eugene Yu, citing lack of evidence and ‘potential bias.’ READ: Charges dropped against election software CEO accused of data theft It is not surprising that the vast majority of Americans don’t trust the mainstream media. In fact, a 2021 poll revealed only 29% of Americans stated they completely trusted the legacy media. In this story about the New York Times, Breitbart explains why no one trusts them. Coincidentally, it involved two stories on Communist China, an American-based voting software company and the data of American election workers. One was published on Oct 3, 2022, and the second on Oct 4, 2022. Breitbart provides the details: On October 3, the New York Times published an article by reporter Stuart Thompson titled “How a Tiny Elections Company Became a Conspiracy Theory Target,” in which he claimed that “election deniers” were targeting Konnech, a Michigan election software firm with just 21 U.S. employees, and had developed a theory with “threadbare evidence” that the company had tied to the Chinese Communist …

Woman holding an iPhone in 1860?

Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller’s painting, “The Expected One,” shows a woman in a purple dress strolling down a path holding something in her hand. Waldmüller who was from Austria lived between 1793 – 1865 and painted the young girl in 1860. The painting actually gets its name from the young man who is hiding in the foreground near the path holding a flower for the girl. Recently several viewing the painting online are convinced the young woman is scrolling through an iPhone, and certainly, it is eerily similar to what we see every day walking down our streets. Of course, along with that comes suggestions by those with a sci-fi bend that this painting is evidence of time travel. But it is a sign of how much things have changed. As the experts point out, most people in 1860 would have known exactly what that woman was holding. It was a prayer book that contained prayers, Bible verses, liturgy, and devotionals that people could recite privately or even together with others. While some commentators sarcastically asked …

Pastor insists he is not Elvis

Known as the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley died in 1977 at the age of 42. Since then, conspiracy theories have emerged that Elvis is still alive, including some who recently suggested that Robert Joyce who pastors a small church, Household of Faith in Benton, Arkansas, is actually Elvis. Premier Christian News provides more details: Tom Mennel, watched a YouTube clip of the preacher and told The Express that he is convinced the pastor isn’t who he is claiming to be. He said: “I have been an Elvis fan since I was six-years-old and now I am 61-years-old. To me, Mr Joyce is Elvis and I do hope one day he will stand up and say who he is.” However, Mr Joyce has confirmed he is not Mr Presley who died on August 16th 1977.

A cute story about the Queen’s encounter with two American hikers

Queen Elizabeth is the only Monarch in Britain’s long history who has served seventy years. This week, Britain is celebrating her Platinum Jubilee. Below is a funny story about two American hikers who accidentally ran into the Queen while out hiking: Though many don’t realize this, Canada is a constitutional monarchy, which means that we have a parliament that passes legislation, but they don’t officially become law until the Queen or her representative sign them into law. In other words, the Queen of England is Canada’s official leader. Canada even has two thrones set up in the Senate specifically reserved for the King or Queen and their spouses, or for the official representative of the Queen.
