Imagine how much trouble you would be in if you were having sex with the wife on a Thursday evening in Beijing in a position other than missionary and you spiced it up with a little slap and tickle with a 2 1/2 inch strap and while this was all happening you accidentally farted.

Google "absurd laws in China" and see what else can you find....

You can do the same for other countries too, just change country name.

Funny but true, the sad part about it is some of these laws are more than 100 years old

A:Hard to say, on the face of it Xi Jinping seems to be trying to do the right thing in clamping down on corruption. I think we will have to wait for a few years yet and see what if anything changes. This is a country that has had corruption at its centre for many generations, long enough that many people do not even recognise corruption when they see it, it is just how things get done. I think the government is aware of what the rest of the world think of China and would like to improve its standing, this is one way of doing it. It maybe a bit like how we see the "development" of China. Tall buildings, high speed trains etc but as far as health, education, pensions and welfare systems hardly any change at all. In other words the highly visible things get the go ahead but the more important things that underpin real civilisation are just shoved to the back of the line. This may be nothing more than trying to gain face. -- tomcatflyer
