12. G I No
If youre one of those spirited sorts who relaxes by re-enacting battles, you might want to think twice about taking a Caribbean holiday its against the law to wear camouflage clothing in Trinidad and Tobago and St Lucia. Apparently this is to prevent people from imitating military and other officials, and you could be detained and have your kit confiscated. That is, of course, if they can find you.

But if he cranks it up all the way to level 3 then its time to panic. This is the official Government-sanctioned rate that must be used for all taxi rides following a nuclear explosion.
