Straight people aren't afraid of getting caught by their wives/husbands and girl/boyfriends.....



.....wait...yeah they are.  Why don't they hide in a park like these cowards?

Well yeah, you can't stop things like that from happening anymore than you can stop speeding or murder.  But to condone it?  Seems like they are sending the wrong message.

I know...was a poor joke.

I was trying to imply that everybody routinely makes random obscene phone calls while masterbating.  I sometimes forget that everbody doesn't live inside my head.

So everybody has suffered from this condition at some point or another then?  Probably why it didnt' make the list.

As I said earlier, the only one I was compelled to look up against my self-advice was "telephone scatalogia" because I thought scat had a remote chance of being a root that involved poop, and telephones aren't usually compatible with poo
That too is the one I'm most curious about as well.  I knew what "scatalogia" meant....but I'm really confused as to how it works over a telephone.

..and I'm freaking shocked and a little saddened so many people think this is ok.  I'm guessing you guys don't use parks very often.


Yes Hugh, sh**t like that does happen in parks around here and you know what, the local authorities don't fence off sections of the parks so that people can go have anonymous sex.  They ARREST them for having public sex.  Why?  Because it's against the law to have sex in public.  A park is a public place.  Even when hiding behind bushes.  Would it be ok if they were having "Fight Club" behind the bushes?

Here is a crazy thought, maybe they meet at the park and then find a hotel?  Oh, that's right, the nutless wonders are afraid of being "caught" by their wives or girlfriends.  Here is another crazy thought, STOP LYING TO YOUR WIVES AND GIRLFRIENDS you unethical cowards.

Assuming this is common in Europe, are you trying to say that this is looked upon with prejuidice there?
Europe is nowhere near as "liberal" as they like to think they are or often try and remind us that they are.

My landlord and one roommate is coughing lately.

I'm not taking any chances and am drinking plenty of water and buying plenty of disinfectant.

I'd recommend you kill them now just to be very cautious!
Nuke 'em from orbit, it's the only way to be sure.

It seems like a very practical "solution" to me.  The idea is to facilitate folks  having their own space where they can "feel" comfortable without making others feel the opposite.  What is wrong with that?  It tends to mitigate a certain negative economic externality here does it not?
Because it's a freaking park?  If you want to designate a space for dudes to get together for anonymous sex, fine, my beef is that it's in a freaking park.  Don't they have gay clubs there?  Designate gay clubs as the place for anonymous gay sex.

Do no white people eat chicken in upstate NY?  Or do no white people say television worthy things to cameras in fast food parking lots?  Or is the editor at that TV station a racist (or making a hilariously bad and not very well hidden "inside joke")?

WOW!  I'm often amazed at how STUPID people are.  If a business pisses you off enough that cops need to be called....here's a crazy funking idea, STOP GIVING THEM YOUR MONEY!   

..at least I saw a few crackers in the segment Smiley
17091  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Are you nervous about swine flu? on: April 30, 2009, 09:07:13 am
In a way I'm nervous, but not because of the flu.    My worry is that the white rich ruling class is attempting DE- population.  Get rid of 35-40% of the poor population and their wealth is secured. 
So it's not the Jews or the Illuminati anymore, it is now the entire "rich ruling class".  Do they hire out for evil scientists or are evil scientists among their members?

How many people have fallen ill with flu during this time? Only by knowing the death rate can one possibly compare the impact of regular flu and the potential swine flu pandemic.
You are 100% correct and since none of the Americans that have the Swine Flu have died from it I'm guessing the death rate for "regular" flu is currently higher than for that of the Swine Flu.  This is true for every country in the world except Mexico. (and it may be true there as well, we'll probably never know)

And a major difference is the fact that Swine flu seems to strike young people far more severely than regular flu.
I suppose, but with so few actually dead it's kind of hard to tell.

North Korea threatened to conduct a nuclear test and more ballistic missile tests if the U.N. Security Council doesn't withdraw its condemnation of Pyongyang's rocket launch earlier this month, the state-run Korean Central News Agency reported.

 The U.N. Security Council "should promptly make an apology for having infringed the sovereignty of [North Korea] and withdraw all its unreasonable and discriminative 'resolutions' and decisions adopted against [North Korea]," a spokesman for the North's Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

"The measures will include nuclear tests and test-firings of intercontinental ballistic missiles," the unidentified spokesman said.

The statement also said Pyongyang will start building a light-water nuclear power plant and begin production of nuclear fuel.

The Security Council condemned the April 5 rocket launch as a violation of a 2006 resolution that bans North Korea's ballistic missile activity.

North Korea, angered by the Security Council's unanimous vote, has threatened to walk away from the six-party talks aimed at disarming the country of nuclear weapons. It has said it will restore its disabled nuclear reactor.
Who is the Israel of far east?  Japan?

Since January, more than 13,000 people have died of complications from seasonal flu, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's weekly report on the causes of death in the nation.

No fewer than 800 flu-related deaths were reported in any week between January 1 and April 18, the most recent week for which figures were available.

The report looks at deaths in the 122 largest cities in the United States.

Worldwide, the annual death toll from the flu is estimated to be between 250,000 and 500,000.

A park near Amsterdam has unveiled information signs pointing out spots where officials say gay men are known to have sex, so visitors are not taken by surprise.

The signs "clearly indicate what is happening in each zone; also those where gay men are known to practice 'cruising'," municipal spokeswoman Manon Koffijberg said.

Cruising is a slang word used to describe the act of trawling for casual sex.

"If you don't want to be confronted by a vision of that sort, the signs allow you to avoid specific areas," Ms Koffijberg said.

The De Oeverlanden park in Slotervaart, south-west of Amsterdam, is known as a place where homosexuals from all over the Netherlands and elsewhere in Europe go in search of sex partners.

Ms Koffijberg said that while having sex in public was against the law, the park has been used for this purpose for so long that it has become "gedoog", a Dutch word for tolerating unwanted behaviour.

The sexual activities of cruisers, she said, kept mostly to the bushes in the park, and the new signs sought to ensure that they stayed there.

"There are various groups of users of the park; people with small children who bathe on the beaches, those who walk their dogs, gays cruising and nature lovers," Ms Koffijberg said.

"Things are arranged so that each group can relax in their own area without intruding on each other."

There had been recent complaints of gay bashing in the Slotervaart area, populated by a large group of immigrants of Muslim origin, with reports of robberies and violence against gay men in De Oeverlanden park.
It's pretty rare that I side with Muslims against homosexuals (not that I'd go around gay bashing or anything), but I think the authorities have crossed a line here.  It's one thing if they don't want to try very hard to stop the gay sex in the park, but going so far as to put signs up condoning the behaviour?  Seems a bit too much to me.

Why lookithere, Phil, I never knew you did calisthenics.

I like how you bold everyone's name. Interesting quirk.
It's common on some message boards, I've done it here on a few occasions.
