Keep it Legal: China’s 10 Strangest Rules and Laws

Published: Sep 23, 2017
1. Thou shalt not stop at pedestrian crossings. This explains a lot. Until we discovered this particular law, we were stumped (and more than a little irritated) by the fact that cars just don’t seem to stop at pedestrian crossings.
2. Thou shalt not store explosives in thy basement. Chineselaw forbids householders from storing more than a tonne of explosives (i.e. fireworks) in their basement or cellar.
3. Thou shalt not eat another man’s wife… intentionally. An obscure law states that a man ought not to eat another man’s wife intentionally as part of a meal.
4. Thou shalt not date thy colleague. One internet company in Guangzhou province has a strict and bafflingly specific policy on dating, which was leaked online recently.
5. Thou shalt keep thy vices local. County-level officials seem to play fast and loose when it comes to dreaming up laws. One county in Hubei province designed a rule whereby workers at all state-owned companies could only buy local cigarettes, and had to meet an overall quota of 23,000 packets a year.
6. Thou shalt not give away the secret of silk-making. Ancient imperial law stipulates that anyone caught sharing the secrets of sericulture (otherwise known as silk-making) was to be tortured to death.
7. Thou shalt not name thy children strangely. A man in Zhengzhou was forbidden from naming his newborn son “@” because of the rule stating that all given names must be translatable into Mandarin.
8. Thou shalt not bind thy daughter’s feet. This is another law that is heartening, but also makes you kind of sad that it was ever necessary. Up until the founding of the People’s Republic, it was customary for little girls to have their feet boundin order to secure a husband.
9. Thou shalt salute passing cars. Children at Luolang Elementary School in Guizhou Province are required by local law to stop and raise their hands to all cars which pass them on the street.
10. Thou shalt announce the approach of a Russian. Ok, so this one dates back to 1907, but it’s still a classic. Back in the day, there was a little-known Chinese republic near Vladivostok.

6 Insane Laws That Make China A Goddamn Nightmare

1. The Death Penalty Is Out Of Control. In some respects, we're amazed anyone ever breaks the law in China, because it executes goddamned everyone. In 2014 alone, the government carried out around 2,400 executions for offenses of all kinds, even nonviolent ones.
2. The Food Is Basically Poison. With a population of around 1.5 billion, it's understandable that China would face some struggles trying to keep every one of its citizens reasonably fed.
3. Student Loans Are Given By Loan Sharks (Who Demand Nude Selfies) Chinese universities aren't terribly expensive, but they are terrible. In many schools, students claim that the bulk of what they learn is little more than nationalistic trivia, and that the education they do receive isn't determined by choice, but by the involuntary placement tests that dictate their majors.
4. Pornography Is Absolutely Forbidden. You probably recognize pornography, or "porn," as that thing you currently have open in another tab. Deleting your browser history is America's pastime, baseball be damned.
5. No One Owns The Land They Live On. Like most homeowners, many Chinese dream of one day passing their homes on to their children. After all, a house is a significant investment, so it makes sense that you should pass it on down the line once your dead ass no longer has any need for it.
6. You Need A Ticket To Go To The Doctor. Anyone seeking medical care in China must first obtain a registration ticket to see the doctor, which is often impossible thanks to the hundreds of scalpers who snatch them up like Guns N' Roses tickets.
