Damn Them!

Yeah! Another "surrenders" headline! Hooray for unoriginality!
2003-01-29 05:57:56 PM  
What about sex on the roof?
2003-01-29 05:58:39 PM  
and i quote: "nookie but sex"

If it's "outdoor nookie but(butt?) sex"....why would they want it indoors anyway? Crazy Brits...
2003-01-29 06:01:19 PM  
People who live in glass houses should not........ nevermind.
2003-01-29 06:02:10 PM  
Why would peeping tom's surrender? I think it'd be more along the lines of rejoicing or ensuing in this case

So where are the homeless going to fark?

And for the first time, voyeurism, bestiality and necrophilia will become specific offences, each with a maximum sentence of two years' imprisonment.

and for the first time???

welcome to 2003, i'll be here all year

"No-one wants to be an unwitting spectator to other people having sex in a public place," said Home Office Minister Hilary Benn.

Speak for yourself, miss Hilary!

The new measures also cover gay sex in places such as public lavatories - so-called "cottaging".

Umm, OK. Maybe this is a good law.

hmm, they need to get laid inside the cardboard box. so no one sees it.
2003-01-29 06:18:51 PM  
Well, since they aren't allowed to have guns I guess they have to do something to keep the burglars away.

There goes the cottage industry.

Peeping Tom?

(points for those who have a clue.)
2003-01-29 06:29:36 PM  
I rather like that when you click on the article link, the top of the browser window suggests you "witness the event."

What was the fine for voyeurism again?

I was thinking exactly the same thing . The "surrenders" headlines are totally overused and now they're being used out of context as well. Wouldn't "Peeping Tom rejoices" have been a little more appropriate?

What's the big problem with bestiality anyway? Surely they should at least grade it by animal size. Surely horses etc don't care at all. Nobody suffers, no crime.

Bloody hell! What are Members of Parliament going to do for entertainment now?

you know, if you watch the video clip, it almost appears as if the emphasis of the bill is to stop child rapists/pornographers/asshats. and that's something i can get behind. to quote the video clip "anyone who has sex with a child under 13 will be charged with rape, and could be sent to jail for life."

kudos to that.

What? I am not going to Britain. Outdoor sex is the best kind.

Give me that excitement of doing it in a waterfall, or the daring of doing it beside a trail.
2003-01-29 07:14:44 PM  
Mofmisfit Sounds good, just have to wait for them to bring in the castration angle now. Life imprisonment sadly doesn't do what it says on the tin.

But should have an age-gap thing for the kiddies - my schoolmates were getting themselves pregnant at 12 by playing with the boys. What's an adolescent boy to do if a girl jumps him? Not fair to put the onus on them (especially as boys that age are completely brainless).

Hey, all of you who are biatching about the "surrenders" headlines, I agree completely. But at least there are only 4 posted today on the main page, and 5 posted yesterday. That's a small percentage of the crap that gets submitted and not posted. You have to read through about 50 of them on a daily basis when looking throughon TotalFark. For example, in the last three hours alone, these have been submitted and not yet reviewed for posting on the main page (cut-and-paste, so all spelling and grammar errors belong to the submitters):

New batch of Boobies(NSFW). Vaseline and tissues surrender

RIAA Hacked Again....France Surrenders
(This is perhaps the only one that makes even less sense than the "peeping toms" one)

Iraq to chair U.N. Disarmament Conference. Irony surrenders

Asshat abandons 7 kids in the woods. Hansel and Gretel surrender

How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love Weapons of Mass Destruction. Dr. Strangelove surrenders

Meryl Streeps awards hope SAG due to nomination blunder. Sony surrenders.

Bridge construction halted after complaints of noise; Tennagers with humongous bass tubes surrender

14,000 crows take over U Mich campus; Hitchcock surrenders

Iraq takes over UN Commission on Disarmament. France and sanity surrender

"The Ethel Merman Disco Album," now available on CD. Taste surrenders

Gay Coffees. Juan Valdez Surrenders

French road safety groups slam hit film sequel. Chances are, somebody will surrender

Mormon newspaper runs gambling contest; "Religion and Ethics" section surrenders

7 year old girl finds her father's handgun and shoots herself. Charlton Heston should surrender

And there are at least about 30 more that were submitted earlier in the day, none of which is any more clever than these. Originality surrenders.

Cottaging: wow. I'll have to remember that particular term to insult my heterosexual classmates.

Who's to say where 'outdoors' starts and 'indoors' ends? What's an enclosed porch? A garage with the door open?
2003-01-29 07:34:07 PM  
crappy use of over used "surrenders" headline. doesn't even make sense.
2003-01-29 07:35:02 PM  
Brywalker, that'd be one Mr. Mike Patton.
2003-01-29 08:02:58 PM  
Since when has people having sex outside been a huge problem? To me, it seems like cops have to much to do as it is. In my neighborhood, the cops come by to tell you if you left your garage door open when you are away.
2003-01-29 08:26:07 PM  
I think what Cyberluddite is saying, is he surrenders.
2003-01-29 08:59:35 PM  
This was already illegal wasn't it? Indecent exposure or something?
2003-01-29 09:03:02 PM  
Brywalker: Peeping Tom is one of Mike Patton's many projects. The man is a genius, but I still miss Faith-No-More.
2003-01-30 03:32:47 AM  
What I understood from the Beeb's report of this, is that sex outside is OK, providing there are no unwilling witnesses.

Obviously, the burden is on the participants to ensure (or in court - to prove) that no one witnessed it unwillingly.
2003-01-30 07:15:44 AM  
as if this will make any difference to anything
2003-01-30 09:42:03 AM  
maybe its just me but I think I should be able to take a nice little crap without all that noise from the stall next door, with or with out the door closed...I think they should make them do it with out noise...also is it ok to bring a woman into your stall with you? or does it have to be a man?
2003-01-30 10:25:19 AM  
The article said the law is expected to pass next year. Hurry up, everyone, you have only 11 months for legal outdoor sex. Enjoy it while you can.
