Take a cold dip at Devil’s Pool
How to pull it off despite our obvious looks of disapproval: It might not have the same appeal that it holds in summer, but taking a jump off the cliffs into Devil’s Pool is a time honored tradition on the Wissahickon Creek. Now that the weather’s cold, it’s actually a real polar bear plunge. Advice on how to get there? It’s not that hard to find, and we think there probably won’t be any cops freezing their butts off looking to grab kids crazy enough to jump into freezing water in November.
Laws you’d be breaking: It’s illegal to swim in any rivers or creeks around Philadelphia so you’re breaking the city law -- rumor has it that enforcement is pretty lax.
Eat peanuts and walk backwards outside the Barnstormers Theater during a performance
How to get away with it even though... wait, never mind. Go ahead and do this one, but good luck landing a second date: You heard it right; it’s illegal to eat peanuts outside Barnstormers Auditorium in Ridley Park while walking backwards during a performance. It’s still unclear if you can do this heinous act walking forwards or during off-hours. But if you’re a rebel (you are) and like living your life a quarter mile at a time (you do), grab some peanuts, your main squeeze, and see what happens (jail time, maybe). Who have you become?!
Laws you’d be breaking: Reverse peanut consumption in public -- we are unable to verify what “punishment” exists if you got, but it’s probably something stupid... or horrible!
