Those things are kind of spendy, you'd think someone would notice if that went missing.

Once the courts get through with him, the poor bastard won't have a leg to stand on.

We are absolutely terrified of stranger pedos.  The odds say that at least one panicking parent fleeing with their kid is a pedo themselves.

They don't want their kid cheating on them.

FTA:

Yet upon investigation it was found that the leg belonged to a disabled man who had left it on the floor of the cubicle while he went for a swim.

Larkfield Leisure Centre declined to comment. However the story has raised eyebrows online, with historian Tim Stanley writing in the Telegraph that it was like something out of TV satire 'The Day Today' and adding "I can't wait to read about the paedophile who was mistaken for a prosthetic leg".
Others asked how teachers were able to tell that the prosthetic leg belonged to a paedophile. "Do paedophiles have different artificial limbs?" tweeted one reader.

Nobody thought to just walk over to the cubicle and see who was in there?

Right, that's my point. It wasn't missing. The guy was just going for a swim.

It could have been a top-secret NSA/GCHQ pedophile prosthetic leg with a HD camera and a wireless connection to the Internet.  You can never tell these days.

Why don't you have a leg over there?

One of my childhood friends has an artificial leg. He would always leave it on the side of the water when we went swimming. (obviously)  It freaked the fark out of some people who came across it without seeing him first.  I mean they went just apeshiat bananas when they saw the leg.  It was even better when he stood up with one leg and started screaming that his leg had just been cut off.

That could be dangerous.  Have to follow Health & Safety rules.  Only an official properly trained and certified in paedophile detection may approach any suspected paedophilic activity, and must be wearing appropriate personal protection equipment.  In this case, a type 1 liquid/biological hazmat suit.

Peeping? Were the kiddies all naked?

It'll probably turn out the guy in the pool was getting an underwater beeg from a teenager.

So you see what appears to be a limb sticking out from a cubicle (I assume this is either an outside changing area or the author is just terrible and meant a bathroom stall) that isn't moving and your first reaction is to.... get all the kids out of a pool?  How does that make any sense?

edmo: Peeping? Were the kiddies all naked?


It is the same kind of fear that leads to people being afraid of costumed mascots. Some people appear to be scared because they think like this: "What if a paedophile was in the costume and maturbates to the memory?" Suddenly, despite their being no actual danger, the world is full of danger again.

Some guy pulled out his third-leg at a pool full of kids, and a bunch of prudes got all bent-out-of-shape about it. Or something. I don't know. I didn't read the article.

I hope this post helps.

It is in English. It needs to be translated to American.

What, you're thinking people should be concerned about a stranger's welfare? That apparent evidence of a fellow human being collapsed unconscious should be met with investigation and readiness to call upon medical assistance rather than paranoia and panic?

My god. There were  children present. You  monster.

You joke, but CSB:

I worked retail for a few summers after high school - a big-name clothing store, with dressing rooms in the back. Closing up one night (one other person, who was running the register up to LP), I did my sweep of the rooms to look for clothing people had left there. When I saw a HUMAN HEAD, I almost lost my shiat.

Turns out, they store mannequins (and parts) in the last stall.

Yo man listen up... this dude pulled off his woody, and set it in the hole with the leg out as he went for a dip in the pool. Someone noticed the leg a while later while their kids swam, and they went apeshiat.

Did he ever yell, 'pool shark!'?

Times sure have changed, as I recall once while with a large group of kids, the adults were getting impatient as us boys took turns in the stalls changing into our suits.  They started chiding us for not just changing all at the same time in front of everyone else.  Either impatient or anxious I guess.

Mine basic leg was $17,500 ten years ago. I have never spent that much on a  car. My "beginner" leg was $10,000. Praise God I had good insurance at the time.

Kids are fascinated by it. I tell them I am part Terminator.


/Yes, I would notice if I had left it somewhere the first step I took. I would hit the ground hard.
