I like how shaking a doormat after 8am has a more severe penalty than firing a cannon within 300 yards of a house
wait if i fire a cannon 301 yards from a house and hit nothing that is legal?
@Inkyminkyzizwoz both are correct so you didn't to have do that stfu
I love how it's only salmon getting handled in a suspicious manner that's illegal, but not other fish
Which is good, glad I can still play cod jenga.
I'd expect handling herring would be more illegal, especially if it reflects light of short wavelength.
try to do it with halibut
There's a red herring joke to be made here.
Fish jenga is a serious offense
holding a fish "suspiciously" is by far the most hilarious weird thing ever and i'd love to see someone holding it in a way that one would call sus.. like actually...
@Katie Nelson hehehehehe
you mean the holy mackerel from tf2??
One might say it is kind of "fishy" innit?
@rando prior AH. NO!
"Everyone hands up""We have a salmon, a wooden plank a kite, and a doormate and It's 8:05am we will not hesitate to use these weapons!"
"I have a kite so you wont take me alive"
and a profane song sang as loud as possible in the streets!
And all we want is a tenner with a beard on the Queen's face!
AND I'M READY TO PLAY KNOCK -DOWN - GINGER!
Oh, and a cannon.
My favourite one is an American law: It is illegal to tie an alligator to a flagpole in Texas. That means someone in history wrestled an alligator, dragged it to a flagpole an tied it on the flagpole before they made it illegal to do so.
think florida has a law like that as well
It's a hard life for gators in the southern US. You either live long enough to be used as a living weapon by meth heads that know no fear or you randomly get gunned down by humans in a boat while you're just minding your own buisness.
@Kasia I've seen the fire hydrant video too. I guess you're right, technically one could tie his pet elephant to it, but then again, is an elephant not kinda a fire hydrant... I think dangerous animals could mean anything. A rabbit with myxomatosis is technically also dangerous so specification seems ok to me, what i don't really understand is the elephant. To my knowledge elephants never lived in Florida... Unless there was some circus that tied there elephants to random parking meters.
@Pepijn That would suggest that it is perfectly legal to tie an elephant to a fire hydrant, when you put them side by side. I can kinda understand the fire hydrant thing, though. I've seen photos where firefighters broke windows in a car parking directly in front of a fire hydrant, to pull the hose(?) through it. The car owner was also fined for blocking the way. In a video, a firefighter explained/showed that had they ran it over, under or around the car, there is a risk of it bending in a way that would block/slow down the water flaw and that is crucial to putting out fire.What I don't understand is why they didn't just use "(dangerous) animals" in those lawmakings. I mean you could technically tie a crocodile to a flagpole, no?
@Lilyfrog i mean, good luck forcing Florida to not do that.
There's something about watching grown men laugh hysterically while drawing a beard on the queen that makes me want to do it too.
This did not age well…
@vlad kakouskioooof litteraly
that one didn't age quite so well
And now the queens dead -_-
Oh this aged well now didnt it?
"What you in here for?""I hit someone with a salmon."
Meanwhile, in maximum securtiy 500 metres below sea level: **We flew a kite in a public place**
@[ᑭᗩҜ] βєןเєשєг mhm as a fellow person who once got slapped with a salmon
Quite rude init
I just imagine the Queen just chilling in the palace while vibing to 'We flew a kite in a public place'
its a good song
I like how handing salmon in suspicious circumstances can give 2 years in jail but if you fire a cannon next to a house you get a small fine
I want to thank to every employee at Google, especially BRclip, for creating such a complex algorithm that will suggest videos 8 years later after they've been uploaded. Congratulations champs!👏👏👏
This is a timeless video :) I love it :)
I've never imagined in my entire life that my favourite youtuber, Tom Scott, could be such a criminal.
@rezlet Lmaooo, Glad I'm not the only one who saw that
I'm crying and shaking right now Tom Scott would never do that
I mean, he vaped and that's illegal
@Ao Arashi such devilish statements
As funny as the video is, it shows a serious issue with our legal system: It's easy to make laws but it's hard to ever abolish them again as nobody seems to care to take themselves the time to go over old laws, receck if they are meaningful and requests abolishment if they are not. IMHO all laws should have an expiration date and unless they are renewed before that date is hit, they should automatically lose validity. And there should be an upper limit how far in the future that date may be, e.g. at most 20 years.
@CakeEatingPirate This I whole-heartedly agree with. Did you know that until April, they hadn’t reviewed the law on allowing 16 year olds to purchase lottery tickets since 1994? Also, until 2021, there was absolutely no law that prevented economic abuse (domestic abuse in the form of financial manipulation) between married couples. I’m 100% for a government that reviews laws instead of letting them gather dust so that people may exploit the corruption in this country.
@Skadoof I'm not saying alter the laws every decade, I just expect governments to review laws every decade
@CakeEatingPirate but this is already an issue. Say for example road laws. If these were altered every decade, it would then mean that road users would have to also research these new laws as well. Don't get me wrong, it's obvious that drivers are expected to renew their driving licenses occasionally, but to revise an entire set of laws seems a bit trickier than our current predicament…
@Max Lennon, you do provide a fair argument but renewing laws has a bunch of problems with it. mainly the fact that they are doomed to forget to renew important laws. I feel like they should, at least once a decade, be legally obliged to check the laws and make sure they are up to date. that way they have plenty of time to form a schedule around the legal requirement and if they don't then they get penalized.
@CakeEatingPirate I consider your point about archaic laws that go unenforced to actually be an argument in favor of what Xcoder112 is saying. When the legal system becomes so complicated that no one keeps track of all the laws, and the discretion lies at the point of enforcement, it makes it very easy to selectively prosecute people you don't like. Also, that type of system makes it nearly impossible to win a criminal case without expensive counsel, which is incredibly unequitable for poor people.
bro imagine getting 14 days in jail for shaking a goddamn door mat
Why do I feel like that “we flew a kite” song thing should actually be made. I wanna hear the full version lmao 😂
IDK what you guys were doing, but remember: Gravity is not just a good idea, it's the law.
Old Tom Scott has such a wildly different vibe than current Tom Scott.
We need to find out what crushing and demoralizing thing happened in his life.. *gestures everywhere* oh...
@Tibromatic But do not confuse with Tom Scott, The Older One (of the USS Texas... probably not THAT older).
@Filip Yup, it's this one
It's called being a degenerate uni student
It’s just because matt is there
Matt's laugh shaking the mat out past 8, such joy.
"Being drunk in a pub"Isn't this what you're supposed to do? I mean, it's a pub.
"Being drunk in a pub."Doesn't that defeat the whole point of going to a pub?
The thumbnail aged well
Let's be honest, we all want the full version of 'We flew a kite in a public place'.
Y E S
It exists now, by Gasman, who also did Bad Apple but the lyrics are what is happening on screen.
It's been 9 years. We're all waiting, Thomas.
There is. Just search up Rick Astley
theif: what are you in for?rando guy: I was caught massaging raw salmon...theif:
London then: You can fire your cannon as long as it isn't too close to a house.London now: Knives are scary so we banned them.
Seeing Tom being so silly and dumb has cured my depression
Such an enjoyable video! Great job folks! There's a reason you have four and a half million subscribers
Imagine The Queen just on BRclip scrolling through things as you do ,and then just seeing this
Won't happen these days
@Ladarius S. Facturangreat question
The „The King“ now.
glad i got here before people in the present came here
Imaging being a grandma just cleaning the doormat after 8am and just being sent to jail for 2 weeks
I can't figure out whether these laws actually exist or not...😂
Idk why but when he doodled over that money I laughed really hard 😂😂😂
Since I watch this almost 10 years later, the question is: what's the statute of limitation on these crimes? And if someone steals salmon sushi from Wasabi, does it count as handling salmon suspiciously?
Fun fact!This was originally an episode on "Euopes most wanted" but was never aired due too it being to graphic and horrible to be shown publicly.
Shown in Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted??
@Ganda Still relevant to this day 🙈.Daaamn
@Ganda haha oops welcome to 2022
U have the worst name
Conklin03 crap, I’m from Scotland, it’s a shitehole.
i love how in London you can LITERALLY GO TO JAIL for singing a song
This must be one of the best videos on youtube. No clickbait, just funny things.
I feel like we need the full version of "We flew a kite in a public place"Who's with me?
Legend has it he is still saying "Illegal" to this day.
"Being drunk in a pub"That's the most ridiculous law I've ever heard.Edit:I had finally understood why this law has been implemented. BTW guys, drink responsibly. :)
I also think it's cos a lot of the time when people get drunk in a pub they tend to get really violent and are a danger to other people
Broken by literally every Scotsman ever
Exactly lmao the next law will be “getting too sweaty during a sport” (also I know that the drunk thing is a specific definition)
This is literally my friends and I on a day-to-day basis.
I would LOVE a follow-up video with the history of these laws. Some of them I get, but the doormat one? Not a bit. And who the heck "handled salmon in a suspicious manner" such that there's a law about it??
1:38 I was expecting him to say, ”I can't believe you've done this."
Seems like every day we find out our favorite creators have a history of crime 😔
"I only date bad boys"_We flew a kite in a public place_
We fired a cannon within range of a house.
@S A I need a full version of this
@Anil George Its just the username bc it also says 1 year ago
I like how the fine for singing a song with profanity in the street is up to 1 grand or 14 days in prison, but the fine for shooting a cannon near a house is only 200 pounds.
And the sussy salmon is an unlimited fine and 2 years in prison.
I love how being drunk in a pub is illegal. Like, where else did people get drunk?
I wonder if the Salmon one got enforced because someone actually got caught commiting a crime with a salmon and tried to use it as an excuse
0:38 The average UK citizen breaks this law like twice a day
Me: *pays penalty for defacing money*Me: *pays with defaced money*Policeman: °•°
and then try to bribe the policeman afterwards with some defaced money, that could end up being hilaurious.
@Seph Shewell Brockway it is sort of treason
@Nidhi Agrawal fair enough
@MrPineapple I know but I'm a person.
@Nidhi Agrawal no, I’m a pineapple!
this got recommended to me almost 10 years later and i still find this really entertaining.
Well that's just great. I've got "We flew a kite in a public place" in my head all day.
Time to take a flight to London and do all ten of these laws.
Being drunk in a pub?.... So where else can you be drunk if not in a pub? I totally didn't get this one.And sliding on a snow or ice?... All kids in my country would be jailed for this one... including some adults too. :D
The law makers missed an opportunity for #10 to be “Handling salmon in FISHY ways”
@THOR The God of Thunder dang the ratio tho
i had to be fish jaunga
Or they’re just dumb and don’t know how to joke around
@notasad unnecessary, now get ratio’d
I know this video is almost 10 years old now, but I want a full version of "We flew a kite in a public place." Like if you agree
The only logical explanation (Tho of course only helping the well off) I can come up with for it being illigal to shake a door mat at a certain hour is that it was to stop rich people being covered in dust as they went out, when their servents or the servents of other houses shook or beat out their mats.I don't know, someone else may have a better explanationEdit: I've live here for 16 years or should I say all my life and I have never heard of some of these, there accualy quite funny.
@WhatIsThisMess beat it out or something similar I would assume.
How did you clean your rug before the time of vacuum cleaners
There's a couple other possivle explanations, based on somewhat similar laws I've seen in the past. One was something to do with dumping cleaning water outside after a certain hour. That was put in place to indirectly protect restaurant workers 1t0 years ago or so, as they'd have to clean up as their last task, and then dump the water. Forbid the dumping agter a certain hour made sure their shifts endes at that time at the latest. Doormats could be similar.The other was also from a few decades ago concerning snow cleanup. It forbade sweeping snow from driveways/porches etc. After a certain time, apparently because the city provided official snow clearing of many sidewalks/footpaths and such, and people would just shovel the snow of their proches and driveways onto the sidewalk after the city crews had come through.
The welshmen thing got me laughing so hard 😂😂😂
i love how the fine for firing a cannon is much lower than carrying a plank or singing a song.
I wouldn't even know this was an 8 year old video if I didn't see the timestamp. Tom Scott has actually found the fountain of youth.
you see *he’s* the fountain of youth
"i am standing near the fountain of youth, in an undisclosed location in the Amazon rainforest."
"I'm standing in the middle of the Amazonian jungle and 300 metres from here is the Fountain of Youth. Now, I know what you're thinking. Isn't the Fountain of Youth just a myth, a tale told to children before bedtime? Yes...but also no. You see, a myth is usually based on a natural phenomenon, something from the physical world. Now, of course, that doesn't make every myth true BUT the Fountain of Youth, as unlikely as it may seem, is...indeed...real."
The fact that you can get 2 weeks in jail for shaking a doormat after 8pm is insane...
It's just battery. Assault is the act of threatening violence. Saying you'll punch someone is assault, doing it is battery. You never said you'd hit tom with the fish, so it's just battery.
I firmly believe that online videos peaked in terms of funniness around 2010-2015
Tom Scott should really do more silly videos. The guy did get elected for talk like a pirate day.
Tom in 2020 : Talks about serious issues and intresting things from around the worldTom in 2013 : 1:55
I need more of this Tom
Tom in 2020: My unlicensed hovercraft bar is technically legal.
“We flew kite in a public place”
I only just tealized Tom is actually weirdly short haha
Defacing the money goes so hard now that lizzie's in a box.
i love how flying a kite and firing a cannon have the same penalty
"Ten Illegal Things To Do In London"makes it sound like I should do them if I have the time.
Inmate: What are you in for?Tom: I flew a kite in a public placeInmate: *slowly backs away*
*in prison*Murderer: So, What are you in for?*“we flew a kite in a public place”*
I really wanna go in London
@Gabriele V. we flew a kite in a puuuu-
“I was carrying a fish too suspiciously”
*ahh you were a serial killer? I shook my doormat at 8am weakling*
Can we all try getting “We flew a kite in a public place” to number one in the charts please
This is so funny and this is probably Tom's most funny video.
"what are you in for?""i flew a kite in a public place."*"WAIT WAHT THE F-"*
Tbh we want a 10 hours version of "We flew a kite in a public place"
Imagine this scene in jail:“Ay bro why u here”“I killed 20 men and robbed 11 banks and 23 jewellery shops”“Oh uh cool”“What about you?”“I flew A kite in a public place”
@The Average Person the net is full of stupidity
I was coming up on here just thinking “oh cool another hanako fan” until I see sexuality hi fives.That’s enough internet for me- anon 2022
i carried a plank across a pavement.
I sang a profane song.
_“I held salmon suspiciously”_
8 years ago, I thought it was a new video also being drunk in a pub is the worst law ever
I used to occasionally host pub trivia nights in "small" Chinese town of Changshu, Jiangsu province, China and I used "suspiciously handling salmon" as one of my questions :D
There used to be a law (British but brought over to Australia) which forbad wearing carpet slippers in public. Apparently in the days when hobnail boots were normal, a person wearing slippers was probably a burglar.
It's 2022 and this still belongs to the best on YT! I love you Tom!
London must have been a really wild place in the 1830s and '40s to have all those laws enacted 😂Or someone with a massive stick up their butt (which is saying something for UK standards 😜)
i need a 10 hour extended vertion of "we flew a kite in a public place"
i need a full version of "we flew a kite in a public place"
We need a 10 hour version of we flew a kite in a public place
When are we getting the full song of “we flew a kite in a public place”.
Tom Scott music
Have you actually seen the videos and memes made of it, theres now actual songs
1:40 Well, to be fair, things you do while doing illegal things _are_ illegal overall. Eating a ham sandwich while committing assault and battery, singing happy birthday while committing assault and battery,...
it’s been 8 years we need a full version of “We flew a kite in a Public Place”
It’s a little shocking, at least to me, what some of these penalties were when the laws were put in place. A £500 fine in the mid 1800’s would have been a shitload of money for the average person.
Can we get the full version of "We flew a kite in a public place?"
When you commit multiple crimes and post it on BRclip but still get away with it.
They got away with it because they filmed it in a location that wasn't London.
@Badass TrapBass 11million
Wait, that’s illegal
It wasn't filmed in London, they were in Liverpool all the time. Audience got trolled - priceless.
This is the closest to a vlog tom has ever done.
I feel like this is as much as a funny video as it is a confession
I want the full version of “We flew a kite in a public place”
"we flew a kite in a public place" bro, ive never heard anyone do such a horrible crime. you should go to jail for so long, shame on you tom scott.
Rihanna: We found lo-Tom and Matt: *We flew a kite in a public place. We flew a kite in a puuubliic place.*

Being drunk in a pub... such an impossible thing to control
I can’t believe you can go to jail for 2 weeks for shaking your doormat on the street after 8am!
Because of this video, every time We Found Love by Rihanna plays, i keep singing "we flew a kite in a public place" instead of the actual real lyrics
"Handling salmon in suspicious ways""POLICE, IS THAT F***ING FISH JENGA""NO!" *shoves it over*
I miss Sam it’s like the office you can watch it over and over and never get bored
cries in samonella flashbacks
shouldve given credit to sam o'nella
@Daf and that’s why you should do something to your mind*SPONSER TIME*
older than half of you at 14 years old
In my part of the world, it’s actually an offence to fly a kite to the annoyance of anyone
Still waiting for the full version of "We flew a kite in a public place."
Him:it’s illegalAlso him:actually does it like a boss
Since it cut off the ending part of the kite one it sounded like you said "we flew a kite in a pub"
“Being drunk in a pub” how did this actually become a law 😂
They were drunk in parliament
Well pub is short for public house
Technical it says in a public place, but that includes pubs. It's to stop roudy drunkards running around the country bothering everyone else. It just so happens that pubs are public (usually?)
@schrodingers cat Honestly fuvk of I know why it was made. Just spit balled an idea.Although I feels it's unlikely that its purpose was so poor people couldn't drink. Subjugation of poor was rarely as bad as we think. Wars aren't cheap especially civil wars and uprising.
@Xan penguin its from 1872 it wasn't even necessarily fights it might have just been the idea of the lower classes being allowed to drink.
