10 Most Ridiculous and Weird Laws in the World

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.
