I may legally walk naked down any High St. in Hampshire, while simultaneously masturbating, farting and screaming. That law only applies to me though. No one else. Only me. I am special.

 

This one has been known for a while! :mrgreen:

A Hackney taxi driver can have a wee on his/her offside rear wheel in the street

 

The reason for this is in the olden days a wheel was wood with a steel band round the rim, when going down a long hill with the brake applied the friction generated caused the metal band to heat up to the point of it expanding and was more likely to come off the wooden wheel, therefor upon reaching the bottom of the hill they could p155 on the wheel to cool the metal..



In France, it is illegal to name a pig Napoleon

Why did they not just fit the steel band when it was at a higher temperature than could be created by friction? Then it would simply contract on the wheel and never come off. Simples.
