There are some things that our upbringing had trained us to think are illegal or wrong. Most of the time, they are illegal, but sometimes they just feel illegal.

Sometimes their legality depends on where you are, like turning right when the stoplight is red. Perfectly legal in some areas, but prohibited in others.
