    Here are some strange facts about Melbourne Laws: These are actually posted on the offical tourism website as a warning.


    So, just when you thought where you come from had some weird and wacky laws.... well Melbourne has a few that will leave you scratching your head.

    Below are a few laws that you should be aware of to keep you out of trouble:


    Its an offence to drive a dog or goat harnessed or attached to a vehicle in a public place (Summary Offences Act 1966)

    If you meet up with a pirate - do not trade with them (Crimes Act 195

    Be careful with choosing and hanging out with friends - being found in the company, consorting, or occupy a house frequented by reputed thieves can land you in hot water. (Vagrancy Act 1966)

    Flying kites or playing a game in public which annoys another person (Summary Offences Act 1966)

    Sing an obscene song, tune or ballad within earshot of someone (Summary Offences Act 1966)

    Advertise a reward for the return of lost or stolen goods stating that no questions will be asked. (Crimes Act 195

    Have an article of disguise without a lawful excuse. (Vagrancy Act 1966)

    Leave a motor vehicle unattended with keys in ignition, motor running or doors unlocked. (Road Safety Regulations 1999)

    Back a car or bicycle out of a driveway.(Road Safety Regulations 1999)

    Our favourite - Carry out unauthorised rain making operations - that is the 'seeding or nucleating of clouds by artificial means from a manned aircraft'. (Rain making Control Act 1966) Our guess is, if you can create rain - it's a miracle, not a law!

    The most ironic thing about the final one is that we are currently in the middle of a serious drought....so I am sure that if anyone was caught 'rain making' people would look the other way.

    I heard some of the jokes for "only in Ireland" cept it said "only in America"

    http://www.waynesthisandthat.com/america.htm

    Only in America......do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

    Only in America......do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage

    Only in America.....do we use the word 'politics' to describe the process so well: 'Poli' in Latin meaning 'many' and 'tics' meaning 'bloodsucking creatures'.

    Only in America......can a homeless combat veteran live in a cardboard box and a draft dodger live in the White House. (This was popular when Clinton was in office)

    not so funny fact but... still strange none the less

    anyone ever realize that we park our cars in driveways and drive them on parkways???


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    In America, someone who votes once gets a sticker and people applaud him.
    Someone who votes twice? Four years in prison.
