Is this for real?

While creating travel quizzes, I came across some weird rules and laws in the world.

– The Swiss say ‘shhh!’.
Apparently there’s a curfew on flushing toilets between 10 pm and 7 am as this may lead to disturbance during people’s allocated sleeping time. Adult diapers anyone?
And gentlemen, do take a seat. You can’t urinate standing up after 10 pm as this heinous act causes too much noise.

– Only budgie smugglers allowed in France.
In public swimming pools, loose-fitting trunks are forbidden. Only Speedos or some form of spandex are the order of the day. Why? Where hygiene is concerned, your swimsuit cannot be something you could be wearing outside the pool.

– Keep your knickers on in Thailand.
It’s illegal to go out in public if you’re not wearing underwear. Just can’t figure out how this law can be checked or enforced.
