8. Don’t step on money in Thailand
Up next on our list of most ridiculous and weird laws in the world is the law number 8 – in Thailand, King Bhumibol Adulyadej was revered by the citizens and was even regarded as divine by some for the entirety of his seventy-year rule before his death in 2016. His face is also on the currency, which makes it forbidden to step on it. This is because of lèse-majesté, a law that states that it is illegal to slander the monarchy, which includes the king, the queen, and the heir to the throne, and putting your foot on the king’s printed face is also considered as besmirching his good name.
