10 Things You Think Are Illegal

From taking hallucinatory drugs to owning military equipment, we count 10 legal things that you thought were illegal.

It may come as a surprise, but all of these things are legal in the U.S., at least in some parts.
10 Things You Think Are Illegal

Women Going Topless

While it’s considered indecent by a large amount of the population most places don’t have any specific law against going topless and various places explicitly state that it’s 100% fine for a women to show her tits.
So why did I censor these tits? Because I’d rather avoid getting my video flagged and make you log in or mess with the URL to watch this.
Anyways it’s obviously got to be legal in Florida considering Mardi Gras and all, especially when you consider how heavily policed it is.

Owning a Machine Gun

Obviously in countries that ban or heavily monitor guns this one doesn’t apply, but in the USA it’s not illegal to own one, except well it sort of is.
If the machine gun was made before May 19th 1986 it’s completely legal to own, hooray, go and shoot some clay pigeons or whatever.
Of course since it needs to have been made before that date the prices have gone up by a lot, however, if you become a dealer or a manufacturer you don’t need to be in the police or military.

Sleeping in your car

In at least 14 states, it’s perfectly legal to sleep in your car at a rest stop (you’d think it would be more, right?). But it’s not really illegal to sleep in your car anywhere, unless your car is parked illegally or if you’re too drunk to be driving (if your blood alcohol content is above the legal limit, you should not be in your car at all).

Driving while drowsy

One-third of all motor vehicle accidents are caused by over-tired drivers. However, it’s not illegal to drive a car while drowsy except in New Jersey and Arkansas. And most states that have attempted to put such a law on the books have failed thus far.

 Giving Your Kids Alcohol

The US has one of the highest drinking ages in the world, but in 29 states it’s perfectly fine and dandy if your parent gives a shot of whiskey while you’re at home.
There’s even a few states where you just need to be in a private residence, no parents needed and there’s 10 states where you can buy your child a pint in a pub.
Obviously you shouldn’t go and give your 10-year-old hard liquor, because that will almost certainly cause them some serious problems, but a sip of your beer? Should be fine I guess, but I’m not a doctor, so just go ahead and ignore me.

Owning a Tank

Arguably the pinnacle of land based combat and is also pretty much useless in any situation where you’re not going to be fired upon, so you’d think, using common sense, that it’d be illegal to own one.
Well you are sort of right, if there’s an activated gun on the thing that’s a no-no, but if you want one without a hefty barrel on it, no problamo.
This is true in quite a few countries including the US, UK and Australia; obviously military equipment is going to cost a arse-load of money, but if you’re prepared to spend six or more figures you can have a tank parked in your garage.

School Corporal Punishment

That’s right in these red states in America teachers are completely within their rights to give their students a good ol’ spanking if they say something they’re not supposed to.
You’d think that such a thing would be pretty much universally illegal, at least in the first world, but then here we are.
Luckily most schools don’t practise their ‘right’ to hit children, but there are some that do, which is kinda fucked up really.

Firing a Missile

In South Carolina it’s legal for you to fire a missile, but only if you get a permit, but still, that’s pretty crazy, of course from their definition is loose enough to include fireworks.
If you don’t get a permit you will get fined, but the funny thing is that the maximum fine for doing so is $100, which seems pretty lax all things considered.
Obviously if you go and shoot someone or a building with a missile it’s doubly illegal and you’ll get charged for a bigger crime, but if you miss and everything goes okay? Not illegal.


This ones rather slippery, while it’s technically not prohibited in the USA and Australia there are laws against murder and desecrating corpses.
However, legally it’s considered to be the ‘nonconsensual’ consumption, meaning that if someone gave you permission to eat them after they died, or maybe they’ll just give you there arm or something, it’s legal.
However, the UK has outlawed it since the 1800s, so if cannibalism gives you the chills like it does me, maybe you should move there.


While in various places (some US states for instance) it’s not technically illegal to copulate with a Collie, but the judge is going to find some other crime for it, like animal cruelty.
However, in Finland you can fuck a duck, fist a fish and blow a boar if you want, I have no idea what’s up with Finland, but it’s been legal since 1976, it’s not like a few other places where they just never got around to making it illegal, it’s been stated that you can put your cock in a cock, so to speak.
So yeah Finland, you’re definitely an odd one, you should get that checked out by a professional.
