From yellow clothing to time travel these are the 25 strangest things banned by governments around the world.
China: Game Consoles
Russia: Emo Clothing
The government dubbed the style a “threat to national stability” and banned emo fashion in an attempt to bring down the high suicide rate among teens
Iran: “Western” Hair Cuts
Banned styles include mullets, ponytails, and spikes.
Greece: Video Games
Although intended to be against electronic gambling machines, the law was written very broadly and led to the arrest of someone playing a video game in an internet cafe. After pressure from the EU the law was eventually changed.
China: Reincarnation Without Prior Consent
As crazy as it sounds this is China’s way of controlling the Tibetan Buddhists.
