Subj:     International Sex Laws (S140)
          From: FrankRoesc on 10/03/1999

 Rules, rules, rules always something to control your behavior?
 Well, check these out.  And you guys thought we had it bad here.

 Most Middle Eastern countries recognize the following Islamic
 law:  After having sexual relations with a lamb, it is a mortal
 sin to eat its flesh."  (umm ok, I'm sure the lamb appreciates
 that one)

 In Lebanon, men are legally allowed to have sex with animals,
 but the animals must be female.  Having sexual relations with a
 male animal is punishable by death.  (OK, like THAT makes sense)

 In Bahrain, a male doctor may legally examine a woman's genitals,
 but is forbidden from looking directly at them during the exam-
 ination.  He may only see their reflection in a mirror.

 Muslims are banned from looking at the genitals of a corpse.  This
 also applies to undertakers; the sex organs of the deceased must
 be covered with a brick or piece of wood at all times.  (...a

 The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is decapitation.
 (wonder how they enforce that one??)

 There are men in Guam whose full-time job is to travel the
 countryside and deflower young virgins, who pay them for the
 privilege of having sex for the first time.  Reason: under Guam
 law, it is expressly forbidden for virgins to marry.  (now let's
 just think for a minute...is there any job anywhere else in the
 world that even comes close to this?)

 In Hong Kong, a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her
 adulterous husband, but may only do so with her bare hands.  (the
 husband's lover, on the other hand, may be killed in any manner

 Topless saleswomen are legal in Liverpool, England - but only in
 tropical fish stores.  (of course!!)

 In Cali, Colombia, a woman may only have sex with her husband,
 and the first time this happens her mother must be in the room to
 witness the act.  (shudder at the thought)

 In Santa Cruz, Bolivia it is illegal for a man to have sex with a
 woman and her daughter at the same time.  (...we have to presume
 this was abig enough problem that they had to pass this law...?)

 In Maryland, it is illegal to sell condoms from vending machines
 with one exception: prophylactics may be dispensed from a vending
 machine in places where alcoholic beverages are sold for consump-
 tion on the premises."  (Is this a great country or what?)

          Written by Robert Greene
          From: philsam on 11/20/2011

 Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_48_Laws_of_Power

 The 48 Laws of Power is a 1998 book by Robert Greene.
 Greene takes elements of some of the worlds greatest
 political thinkers of our time to come up with the 48
 Laws of Power, from Niccol? Machiavelli to Sun Tsu, he
 captures their most important points of power.  The
 book was immediately successful, selling more than 1
 million copies in the US, as were his follow-up works,
 The Art of Seduction and The 33 Strategies of War.

 Unlike most self-help books, "The 48 Laws" offers advice
 that the author freely admits is, at times, cunning and
 amoral.  It includes lessons like "Law 1: Never outshine
 the master" and "Law 14: Pose as a friend, work as a spy."

 The lessons are distilled from colorful anecdotes lifted
 from 4,000 years of history.  They include insights into
 the scheming of powerful people such as Al Capone, P.T.
 Barnum and Henry Kissinger.

Subj:     The Asshole Bill of Rights (S594b)
          From: LABLaughsAdult on 5/27/2008

 The Asshole Bill of Rights As an ASSHOLE,
 I proclaim the following:

 #1 I will live my life the way I deem fit, screw political

 #2 I have the right to choose my religious path if I
 choose one at = all. Christianity be damned.

 #3 If I want to eat a cow, I will eat a cow.

 #4 I have the right to hang up on telemarketers
 midsentence and not have to worry about whether
 or not I was polite.

 #5 If I think someone's an idiot, I will tell them
 they're an idiot.

 #6 I have the right to tell children that their parents
 aren't raising them correctly. (Think of how many times
 you've been at a supermarket and heard a screaming child
 the entire time...what exactly would you want to say
 that'd be any nicer?)

 #7 If you don't know what you're talking about, shut the
 hell up.

 #8 You may have the right to speak, but I don't have to
 listen to you.

 #9 If I want to be rude, loud, and obnoxious, it's a
 free country.

 #10 If I want to go to a bar, destroy my liver with
 alcohol, clog my arteries with junk , and have unsafe
 sex with the woman/man I just met, I ought to be able
 to smoke while I'm at it.

 #11 I may be fat, but you're ugly, and I can go to
 Jenny Craig.

 #12 Jerry Springer for President!!!!!!!

 #13 Denis Leary should be proclaimed God and given
 reign over society.

 #14 Your daughter just got drunk at a party, made a
 slut of herself, and you're worried about my
 religious beliefs?

 #15 Before you tell me how to run my life, be
 certain that your own is squeaky clean.

 #16 Just because you work at McDonald's doesn't
 mean you have an excuse to have an I.Q. under

 #17 (Courtesy of George Carlin) Just because you're a
 student does not mean that you're any more enlightened
 than someone that works at Blockbuster.

 #18 Speaking of Blockbuster, if I return the tape, you do
 not have to actually sue me for $15!!

 #19 If you're stupid enough to give me credit, deal with
 the consequences.

 #20 It's ignorant to charge someone $25 if they bounce a
 check for $5. (If I didn't have the $5, what makes you
 think I'm going to have $25 you retards!!)

 #21 If you don't like the way I drive then at the next red
 light get out from under my car.

 #22 If your dog or cat is so smart, then why do you talk
 to it like it's a newborn baby?

 #23 If I shoot you while you're committing a crime, and
 you try to sue me for it, I'll shoot you again.

 #24 Courtesy of Ben Franklin: Anyone who would give up
 freedoms and liberties for temporary security deserves
 neither freedom or security.

 #25 If you live in Tornado Alley, don't whine when you get
 hit by a tornado.
