Yay. Go Canada
2003-07-02 09:31:43 PM  
and Boobies!
2003-07-02 09:33:23 PM  
I REALLY don't want to know what goes on inside that bus. No wonder it has no windows
2003-07-02 09:33:46 PM  
If any hot chicks want to come be naked at my house they are more than welcome.

Celine Dion.

Yous Canadians sure are a feisty bunch.

2003-07-02 09:34:19 PM  
They're waiting for their governmnet to tell them.
2003-07-02 09:35:24 PM  
Is it safe?

Tuktoyuktuk - Not a good place to be nekkid.

Did any one look at the other local news about the Moose Jaw slaughterhouse, the hog barn battle or the bush firefighters?
2003-07-02 09:43:20 PM  
it's a bit nippy up here in Canada, eh?

2003-07-02 09:43:34 PM  
...still waiting for the first Fark "clothing optional" party. May I recommend Ottawa for your nudity business? We have excellent green space, scenic canals, and a community kind of feeling that you can't get anywhere else.

Remember: Ottawa. It's not the south of France, but at least it isn't Toronto.
2003-07-02 09:47:03 PM  
2010... the first all-nude Winter Olympics?
2003-07-02 09:47:47 PM  
Proper spelling of Canada: C eh, N eh, D eh

A Canadian tourist fell into a beer vat during a tour of the Labatt's Brewing Facility outside of Toronto. Plant officials estimate the tourist drank fifteen gallons of beer before he could be removed from the vat.

You know you're Canadian when your city buys a Zamboni before a bus.

Did you hear about the Newfie who died drinking milk? The cow fell on him.

Did you hear about the war between Newfoundland and Nova Scotia? The Newfies were lobbing hand grenades; the Nova Scotians were pulling the pins and throwing them back.

The difference between a New Yorker seeing his CAR being
vandelized & a Canadian seeing HIS car being vandelized is: The New Yorker will yell "EH!!!! Wot you think yur DOING??". The Canadian will yell "Wot you think yur doing EH!!???"

What percentage of Canada is hot?
2003-07-02 09:51:50 PM  
Clothing-optional fark there's a lifetime of fuel for the nightmare machine.
2003-07-02 09:52:15 PM  
Um, 0 percent? Isn't it like cold as hell and mostly woods? Too far north for me.
2003-07-02 09:53:50 PM  
I'm not of afan of being naked alot.

neither do I want to see most of you people naked.

clothes are a good thing.

a sense of mystery.

protection from insects, sun, and child molesters.


prevents chafing.

personal expression/group identification.

diferentiation of customers and sales help.

hides my rice dick.
2003-07-02 09:53:58 PM  
sorry, i meant canadians. the people, not the weather
2003-07-02 09:55:29 PM  


2003-07-02 09:58:06 PM  
I get naked all the time, in my house. Shhh, don't tell anyone.
2003-07-02 10:07:20 PM  
i personally can't wait to get naked.

wait a minute... why wait?
2003-07-02 10:08:54 PM  
You should need a licence to wear no clothes, maybe a small tatoo.

A jury of 10 from the opposite sex should determine your attractiveness if you should be allowed to go naked.

You can try again every 6 months if you think its unfair and got at least 1 vote.
2003-07-02 10:10:21 PM  
Speaking as a Canadian, I must say that I work at home naked all the time.

Oh, wait, maybe that's not called working.
2003-07-02 10:10:52 PM  
Where do I sign up for this jury? Can I use that cool laser pointer and say I'm cooking a burritto in my pants?
2003-07-02 10:13:10 PM  
You call us Naturists, we call you textiles, that's how it goes

I'm rubber, you're glue...
2003-07-02 10:14:03 PM  
Get naked! It's good for you, naturist says

OK, where in that article does it give the health benefits to being naked? I don't know of any myself, except that you are less likely to die of heat exhaustion. But then, that isn't a problem in "40 degrees in the Summer" Canada.
2003-07-02 10:17:58 PM  
OK, where in that article does it give the health benefits to being naked? I don't know of any myself,

And sex, of course. Lots of cardiovascular exercise with sex, very good for the body.

MmmMmmMmmm sex.
2003-07-02 10:20:13 PM  
wydok in the right circumstances it can be very relaxing, stress definately is very heard on your health.

I'm all for group nudity. Of course, every event involving nudity I've heard about or been at involved some sort of entrance standard...people who knew each other.

You don't worry much about the people around you being naked if they're distance runners. Or ride on the school's road bike team.
2003-07-02 10:22:51 PM  
Wow, just imagine if all Canadians were naked all the time! Like Mike Myers! And William Shatner! And Leslie Nielsen! And Tom Green! And.. uh...

Excuse me. I've got to go spend the next two weeks hiding under my bed screaming.
2003-07-02 10:22:56 PM  
Wydok, my thoughts exactly. Here is a guy who for some reason enjoys being naked. Now thats not a problem in of itself, but he blatantly says he is trying to "convert" people to nudism, and one of his reasons is that its healthy. So not only is he attempting to change a person's beliefs, but he is flat out lying in his attempt.

I think he just wants to see more people naked.
2003-07-02 10:28:06 PM  
StickyResin I wouldn't say it's a's probably stretching the truth, but it isn't a flat out lie. The reduced stress is a physical health benefit, and I think there is a very real mental health benefit to being around naked people.

If the people around you are naked, it fixes a lot of the more screwed up attitudes people have towards the human body and sex. And it cuts down a hell of a lot on the unrealistic expectations put on people's bodies. Calista Flockhart is not natural, and should not be held up as any standard of beauty.
2003-07-02 10:37:28 PM  
First there was nudity in music videos, now there is nudity on the side of buses. What is the world coming to?

Now this is just me, but I think being naked around anyone except my immediate family will cause me more stress and endanger my mental health.
2003-07-02 10:38:52 PM  
They make it sound like there are some places where I CAN'T go naked, and frankly, that just screws up what I've believed all my life.
2003-07-02 10:41:15 PM  
wydok the first time a bunch of people stripped down me it was a little strange, but it's much easier to control your responses than you would think. In the right situation it's definately a lot of fun.

This year I'm hoping to take part in one of the Bare Buns Fun Run (although I've heard the course is a pretty boring out and back). While I'm still young and somewhat in shape.

Wow, 2 Canadian threads and this pic can be construed as humourously relevant to both, but maybe only by my twisted mind. From, link on the left under "Friends".
2003-07-02 10:41:52 PM  
I don't mind if it's the right 20% of the population
2003-07-02 10:43:11 PM  
I think the sasquatch was Canadian and it was nakid
2003-07-02 10:49:59 PM  
I meant stripped down around me. Sorry, I've had about 1/3 of a bottle of 100 proof bourbon already. Man I love Jeremiah Weed.
2003-07-02 10:51:21 PM  
I agree with Drewbie. My main problem with group nudity is sharing chairs. Bleh. That and eating food. I would not like to be at a nude potluck.

However, politics would be a lot more interesting if politicians were required by law to be naked all the time.
2003-07-02 11:03:15 PM  
If being naked all the time were natural we would be born with a lot more hair.

One common item you will see at any clothing optional establishment is all nude persons carry towels, and before sitting down they will cover the chair. This should ameliorate the bleh factor.
2003-07-02 11:35:43 PM  
I don't care what anyone says. I like Canada. And moose (or is it mooses? Meese?).

You think that's a good idea? I've got two words for you: "Strom Thurmond".
2003-07-03 12:32:33 AM  
You call us Naturists, we call you textiles

Umm... I think you're confused. YOU call you naturists. WE call you a bunch of crazy nekkid Canucks.
2003-07-03 12:39:08 AM  
I'm naked now.

Quit looking.

Okay, fine, if it turns you on, go ahead and look.

Okay, now you're just staring. That's rude.
