S**t You Don't Know - 19

Rabbis in the township of B'nei B'rak, Israel, banned hot pizza in fast food stores in 1991 because it could lead to improper contact between the sexes. The religious authorities explained that boys and girls might have to wait in line at stores for their pizza to heat and "might look at each other, which is an offense against modesty, or, God forbid, even touch each other". Cold pizza is, however, still legal.
