In addition to the normal hazards posed by flirting, one must also take into account local laws and customs. For example, the January 12, 2001 issue of the Wall Street Journal reports that in an effort to curb the spread of HIV, the Tanzanian village of Nyakaboja has made flirting a crime punishable by the payment of a chicken. Don't try to lie your way out of it, either - denying your obviously licentious intentions will earn you a thwack on the head with a club from the local militia.
