All of these are true laws in the UK which have never been rescinded so they are technically still legal....

Law 1
It is illegal to die in the Houses of Parliament.

Law 2
It is illegal to enter the Houses of Parliament wearing a suit of armour.

Law 3
Taxi drivers are required to ask all passengers if they have smallpox or the plague.

Law 4
Any person found breaking a boiled egg at the sharp end will be sentenced to 24 hours in the village stocks

Law 5
it is illegal to eat mince pies, in England, on Christmas day, as in the 17th century Oliver Cromwell banned Christmas pudding, mince pies and anything to do with gluttony.

Law 6
It is illegal to fire a cannon close to a dwelling house (Met Police Act 1839

Law 7
The use of any slide upon ice or snow is illegal (Town Police Clauses Act 1847);

Law 8
It is prohibited to drive cattle through the streets of London (Metropolitan Streets Act 1867).

Law 9
it is regarded as an act of treason to place a postage stamp bearing the British king or queen's image upside-down

Law 10
A pregnant woman can legally relieve herself anywhere she wants

Law 11
The head of any dead whale found on the British coast automatically becomes the property of the King, and the tail of the Queen

Law 12
It is illegal not to tell the tax man anything you do not want him to know, but legal not to tell him information you do not mind him knowing.

So I could legally kill a Scotsman? Is their a limit to how many?

We could have a mass Whiskey festival, Guaranteed to attract virtually all of Scotland and then shoot them all.

Will investigate further
#15
It is illegal for a cab in the City of London to carry rabid dogs or corpses.

Royal Navy ships that enter the Port of London must provide a barrel of rum to the Constable of the Tower of London.

In Lancashire, no person is permitted after being asked to stop by a constable on the seashore to incite a dog to bark.

In England, all men over the age of 14 must carry out two hours of longbow practice a day.

In London, Freemen are allowed to take a flock of sheep across London Bridge without being charged a toll; they are also allowed to drive geese down Cheapside.

In the UK, a man who feels compelled to urinate in public can do so only if he aims for his rear wheel and keeps his right hand on his vehicle.

In Chester, Welshmen are banned from entering the city before sunrise and from staying after sunset.

Many of the laws are covered by new laws now, like the one making it illegal to kill someone :roll:

Apparently by law there is loaded gun kept behind the Speaker's Chair in the Chamber of Commons; with which the Speaker is supposed to shoot the Queen if she ever enters the commons :p
