Interactive presentation plan for: Rules and Laws

Activity overview:

10 slides

1. In London, it is illegal to flag down a taxi if you have the plague.
Perhaps because of the first strange law, cab drivers are legally required to ask each and every passenger if they have small pox or the plague.
All English men over 14 are meant to carry out two hours of longbow practice each week, supervised by the local clergy.
It is illegal not to tell the taxman anything you don’t want him to know, though you don’t have to tell him anything you don’t mind him knowing.
Throughout the whole of England it is illegal to eat mince pies on the 25th of December.
Passing wind in front of the reigning monarch can lead to a charge of treason.
It is illegal to be drunk on Licensed Premises (
e.g. in the pub).
It is illegal to leave baggage unattended, and picking up abandoned baggage is an act of terrorism.
In the UK, a pregnant woman can legally relieve herself anywhere she wants – even, if she so requests, in a policeman’s helmet.
It is illegal to die in the Houses of Parliament.

You have all moved into a house together. You are all paying equal rent and therefore have equal rights in the house. However there are some problems:
2 of you are smokers and the rest of you are not. The non-smokers don’t want smoking in the house as it is bad for your health.
One of you plays the electric guitar and likes to practice music regularly as you play in a band. However two of you are nurses and regularly work night shifts.
A week ago, one of you damaged another’s property (a flat screen TV). It doesn’t work anymore and a new one needs to be bought. The person who damaged it refuses to buy a replacement but the person who it belonged to wants payment.
One of you has been out of work for a few weeks due to sickness and is having trouble paying the electricity bills. It looks like they might be out of work for a few more weeks.
