    How come in the UK you can have sex at 16 but you cannot watch it in films or legally on the net until you're 18.

    I've never understood this rule.

    Anyone have any pertinent suggestions as to why?

    Anyone else know of any other crazy laws?

    Something I've kinda wondered about myself, though with the Aussie law.

    It's like in the U.S. where you can't drink until you're 21 but you're legally an adult at 18. You can vote, smoke, buy porn, and die for your country.. but you can't drink.

    I heard in Ireland its not against the law to have sex at 16, BUT if you try to have sex at 16 and then you don't actually have sex, its illegal... o.o

    and I've never actually thought about that law - pretty stupid really >.<

    Huh? How does it become illegal? Twits.

    I've heard this story somewhere, and I think it occured in the US someplace. A 16 y/o mother wanted to get her baby's ears pierced and to do the same for herself. The baby got her ears pierced but the 16 y/o couldn't because she could only do so with the concent of one of her parents because she was considered underage.

    I'm not sure how it becomes illegal... I heard it and thought .."uhh what?" >.<

    psshht haha thats so dumb, I didn't even know there was an age limit for getting your ears pierced, but thats ACTUALLY ridiculous.

    In the UK, a pregnant woman can legally relieve herself anywhere she wants – even, if she so requests, in a policeman’s helmet.

    that law is hilarious - I feel sorry for the policeman!

    16 y/o boy to 16 y/o girl: "Hey wanna have sex?"
    16 y/o girl: "Yeah. Cool."
    3 minutes later.
    16 y/o girl: "Umm, I've changed my mind. I don't want to."
    Police sirens, policeman pulls up: "You are under arrest, unless you have sex right now with the boy."
