Do you follow the straight and narrow, or are you known for breaking all the rules? However you choose to live your life, it still pays to know the law. Of course, this quickly gets complicated since where you live has its own unique set of laws.
While cross-dressing may be an acceptable way to unwind in many cultures, it's illegal in Saudi Arabia.

The fictional world of George Orwell's "Animal Farm," of course. Those are three of the seven commandments introduced by Snowball the pig in Orwell's book.
Yes, it's legal to wrestle under a mask in state of New York, though this wasn't always the case. Up until 1972, the New York State Athletic Commission outlawed masks but changed its rule to allow famed luchador Mil Mascaras to perform in the ring.
If you find yourself in Gainesville about to eat fried chicken, best to pick it up in your hands. It's the law. Enacted in 1961 as a PR stunt to promote Gainesville as a beacon of poultrydom, the law remains on the books.

Don't freak out, but it's technically illegal to light that monster joint in the Netherlands. Oh, you can walk into a coffee shop in Amsterdam and purchase marijuana, but that's because the Netherlands adopted the policy of "gedogen" or blind eye in 1976. They tolerate the discrete cultivation and sale of marijuana in order to keep the criminal element and hard drugs away from the pot smokers. So, yes, it's illegal, but you probably won't be charged with breaking a law.
