Incredible things that can get you in jail in some countries


Going to jail is something that scares us all. We try to respect the law within reasonable limits, and we avoid breaking the rules if we can help it. However, we are blessed enough to live in a country that has good laws in place and where you know justice can protect you. But what about other countries where the law is sketchy or almost ridiculous from our point of view?

In this article, I try to break down the weirdest things that could get someone in trouble in different parts of the world. Not all of these places are underdeveloped countries, which might seem surprising to some of us. This proves that each culture has its own quirks and maybe it is a good idea to read about these things before going on a holiday to any of these destinations.

One thing that seems to be the rule in many predominantly Muslim countries is the dress code. If you don’t want unrequited attention, try to cover up and show as little skin as possible. If you are a woman and you show cleavage, especially if you are a local, it could get you into prison in Saudi Arabia. In other Arab countries like Iran, things don’t go that far, but you would still get a consistent fine that would be a burden to your wallet.

Traveling further down on our map to the country of Burundi, in East Africa, and we find another law that might be surprising to Americans or Europeans. But it is not that shocking if you take into consideration its recent history. In Burundi, it is illegal to jog in groups. The authorities consider it a possible uprising, as the country has a rich history full of turns of events. Even two people jogging together is regarded as a group, so be careful what you do when you visit the country.

Going back to Saudi Arabia, which seems to have plenty of rules us westerners don’t necessarily agree with, we discover that they have banned Valentine’s Day. They consider it to be a non-Muslim tradition, and that love should be directed towards God and not consumerism. This could get you jailed not only in this country, but also in Pakistan. Indonesia seems to head into the same direction, as it had plenty of rallies against the holiday in the last few years.

The last weird thing that could lock you up in prison is swearing. In the Australian states of Queensland and Victoria, cursing is considered a ‘summary offense’ and could get you locked up for up to seven months. And they seem to take this thing very seriously as fines are common, and cases that make it to court are not unheard of.


Surprising uses for ATVs

If you’re tired of your personal car or RV but still want a fast, cheap, and easy means of transportation on your own, a powerful ATV is always a good choice. These vehicles are quite easy to drive and you won’t require a special drivers license for it. All you have to do is choose a destination and make sure you stay safe at all costs.

But did you know you can use your personal ATV for a wide array of additional activities? Why exploit it only for when you’re driving to the beach or enjoying a ride into the woods with your friends at the end of the week? Read below and find out what other useful activities can be easily performed with the help of an ATV.


Snow Plowing

With winter just around the corner, you cannot risk being stuck in the house because there is too much snow on your street. And, while authorities may work to plow the snow on the major routes and streets, sometimes the vehicles won’t be able to get on every street. So why not take the matter into your own hands and start plowing the snow out of your yard like a true professional?

All you need is a small-sized snow plow attached to the front of your ATV and you’re ready for the ride. Why hurt your back and sweat while using a shovel when you can get rid of the snow like a pro?



If you planned a good old-fashioned hunting game in the upcoming weekend, there is no need to use outdated gear. ATVs are beginning to be more and more used in hunting games, both by professionals and amateurs. The reason why is that, instead of carrying the required gear and hunting tools in your backpack, you can easily use an ATV.

In addition, an ATV provides you with the right means of transportation to cover larger wood areas and hunt more animals or birds. They are even used for tracking and tracing larger animals like deer and bears. However, make sure to read your local legislation and see if ATVs are allowed for hunting or if they are outside the law. In many states, it is illegal to shoot or hunt game from a vehicle, so stay legal and safe.



No matter if you want to reach the top shelves of your garage or simply mount a larger piece of equipment, ATVs are the right small vehicles to help you out.

All you have to do is attach the right mounting tools or a simple universal mounting system and enjoy work in your backyard, garage or warehouse.
