    • 1.Legally, you cannot chew gum in Singapore:
      When some fools break the rules, many people suffer around. There was a time when some destructive brains used chewing gum to create a mess in the Mass Rapid Transit System. At that time, the Housing and Development Board at Singapore spent almost $150,000 just to clean that gum liter. After this incident in 1992, all kinds of gum substances were banned in Singapore. Anyone who tries to sell, import, or makes gum in Singapore can get jail time or may be fined. Only dental gums and some therapeutic solutions are allowed in the area.

    • 2. Canadian radio stations are bound to play only Canadian Artists:

The preferred duration is counted from 6 am to 6 pm from Monday to Friday. It means most of the time, you will hear Michael Bublé, Celine Dion, Alanis Morissette, Nickelback and Justine Bieber only.
    • 3. You cannot run out of gas in German Autobahn:
      Speed demons and car enthusiasts love to enjoy trips in the German Autobahn, where they are given a chance to drive above the speed limit of 100 miles/ hour. But, while driving on the road, if you run out of gas, you may get jail term or a huge fine. Surprisingly if you think of walking to the gas station nearby, you will be posed another fine for that act. Yeah! It is just because Germans believe that one should keep his vehicle well grassed up. In case if your autogas gets finished while driving, it is all your fault. Hence, it is important to keep your eye on the gas gauge before you move out.

  • 4. In Venice, you cannot feed pigeons:
    Although you may find thousands of pigeons wandering around in Venice, the tourists cannot feed them legally. A few years ago, many tourists used to give pigeons some food in the streets just to capture a few photographs with them. But these activities were banned in the year 2008. It is just because the government realized that in order to clean the mess caused by birds, it costs more than €275 on an annual basis per citizen. Hence, they announced it illegal to feed pigeons to save that cost.
