    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.

    u cant enter the houses of parliament wearing a suit of armour?? Damm there goes my saturday!

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


    she can also relieve herself into a policemans helmet.... funny


    When i was posted to York ( army ) i found out that it is LEGAL to kill a scotsman but only if he is carrying a Bow and Arrow... lets see you explain that one away !!!! lol

    There's "Carters" law....this allows you to urinate on the offside of your cart/horse drawn wagon.

    :-D

    I remember something about being topless and working in a tropical fish shop.

    Will investigate further

    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.

    Banned

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