Eleven things that are banned in other countries, but not in the U.S.

Naming your newborn child North West might be OK here in the U.S., but there are some places out there where you have to get approval by the government or the church.

But let's say a kid misbehaves in school. Spanking is still considered a form of acceptable punishment in some U.S. schools, but that's not the case in some foreign countries where kids get nothing more than a time out for bad behavior.

And let's say you want some ketchup on your French fries during lunch hour -- not so fast, junior, that's banned in some schools outside the U.S. as well.

The Week has compiled a list of 11 things that are banned in other countries, but that remain legal in the U.S.

About the Author

I may not be a native, but I've been in Arizona long enough to forget what it's like back East. I moved to Tucson in the 5th grade where I graduated high school and attended the UofA. The radio bug hit me early and I was a DJ at the age of 17 in Tucson. Besides being on-air at times, my main career focus has been the behind-the-scenes programming of radio stations. I have an extensive background in music radio, in addition to working at and/or running some of the biggest and most influential radio stations in America. My radio career took me to Los Angeles, San Diego and then back to Phoenix. The chance to be back on-air, and to do it at 92.3 KTAR, was too good to pass up… so here we are! Weekends are usually reserved for racing as I own and drive my own dirt track Sprint Car all over the country. I am unmarried (never have been), childless (that I'm aware of) and don't even have any pets at this point. I do own 1 plant but the fact it has survived this long without watering leads me to believe it may be plastic. I love what I do and enjoy hosting a talk radio show for people who don't like "talk radio".
