  1. Wow, video games banned in China despite them being one of the top
    exporters of bootlegs back then. Poor Russians and their Dendy… D:

  2. Kinder eggs were banned in the US in 1938. They were banned because of
    fears that they would cause a person to choke on the toy inside the
    capsule. The ban, given how ridiculous it is, was lifted in the US in 2013.

  3. Capri Italy. Get your shit right…
    high hells are definitely louder than flip flops. So why don’t you ban

    • Why don’t you just suck all the fun out of being on a beach… mini skirts
      and sand castles… Government is retarded.

  4. I live in Canada. I know those walkers are illegal, but what about baby
    strollers with dolls in them?
    And wow Vancouver… have you ever heard of the lever door handles with the
    lock button you can still lock yourself in or out…
