Wow must have skimmed article too fast. This seems like something that woul happen in America though. Well then i pose this question: What the fark is wrong with y'all Brits?


How in holy hell did you think that happened in the U.S. Wasn't your first clue that none of the words were in English? Is Asbo some godawful spread for your toast?

I don't really care what the kids were doing, or where.
I'm pretty concerned that engaging in "anti-social behavior" is all you need to get a visit from police.

If it happened in America the girls would have been arrested, charged with trespassing, building code violations, creating a public disturbance, and depending on the officer might even be charged with resisting arrest. If they had a dog with them the police would have shot the dog for good measure and the kids would be facing life in prison.

Either that or some idiot hunter would have shot them thinking they were deer.

uttertosh: What do you expect from a Christian country?


Yeah, David Cameron's a dick.

Nice to see the likes of Sir Terry Pratchett, Jim Al-Khalili and Tim Minchin standing up against his nonsense.

I doubt fark would parse the SVG from here correctly, but in the 2011 census of England and Wales, 59.3% chose "Christian" as their religion.

I prefer this poll, however, which I'd hope is more accurate as it breaks it down into denominations:

news.bbcimg.co.uk

That is to say, that when confronted with a census form, people may just blindly tick the "Christian" box, because they went to church as children or whatever. But, when pushed to name their affiliation they realise they're not.

I suppose I should call the local police on the neighborhood girls that built a fort next to the creek behind my house, then. They used old deck boards that I had laying back there (with my permission), cut them the proper length and nailed them all together to create a rather well built little structure. Who knows what they and their friends are plotting back there!

We call this in America "post apocalyptic survival training".  As for ass-bows, if it were an actual disorder I'd have more students in my special education school than the public school systems in the entire state combined.  Its called being a teenager.  That doesn't mean its a disorder, despite how stupid they are most of the time.  Yet another reason that the U.S. should not emulate what Europe does every single time.   I'm impressed that the police checked it out.  It would have been filed away and most likely ignored in the U.S.

Doubtful; these girls are no older than 13 at best, and it's not that secluded that they could get away with something like that without someone noticing. Besides, their parents aren't there when they get home from school, so they've got the house for such things rather than a damp, bug infested creek.

The pants are for 2 purposes. 1) to protect the skin from direct contact. 2) to hold protective pads to protect the players. That way when somebody runs near them they don't have to fall on the ground and clutch their leg in agony.

The shoulder pads protect the chest and upper body. That way when somebody runs hear them they don't have to fall on the ground and cry like a little girl who just lost her dolly.

The make up. Yeah totally ghey. Just like the battle paint worn by Celts and Vikings.

Now I'm going to look at you funny, so I suggest you fall on the ground, and pretend I broke your leg and try to get me a red card. Cause you're so manly.

Totally - the numbers can also be fudged by the wording, or order of the list of answers. If the first tick box is Christian, with Muslim second, then the first box (of,say 10) will be ticked by most, like you say, as they went to church as a kid.

/If i hope with you then there's at least two of us.

skozlaw: In other words, your asshole kids were out messing up woods you don't own and aggravating people badly enough that they called the cops


First of all, they're the PUBLIC'S woods - they were doing no wrong by being there, doing what they were - that's what the law says, so you can stfu about that.

For the rest of your imagined sequence of events;
  I'm very much imagining that the 13 yo girls were, undoubtably being quite loud - 13 yo girls in a group, with a belly full of sugar, doing outdoors stuff in the woods, tend not to think too much about how loud their voices are.

I can also imagine a busy-body octogenarian church-group woman being fed up of vandals in the woods behind her house (the trees look pretty 'tagged' to me), simply overreacting, not bothering to go out and tell them to keep it down, because she's had empty beer bottles in response in the past, and just rung the police for good measure.

I actually highly doubt your version of events. I'm 99.999% certain that it happened just like I said.
 
2014-04-21 11:20:20 AM  
They'd have loved me over there, as a kid.

I was forever in the woods, climbing trees, exploring, building forts, lurking around from time to time with a BB gun or a machete, making camp fires, cutting down the occasional tree and digging foxholes.

Periodically friends joined me for the day who lived in the city.

When I started driving, I was forever exploring deserted sections of the beaches, prowling along river banks (ours were not cluttered in junk and trash) and finding 'treasures' like sand dollars, interesting shells, a long forgotten small ferry and what was left of it's original dock, the rare bit of sea-glass and wonderful, secluded fishing spots.

Actually, my folks tended to worry if I wasn't outside and the few neighbors we had -- usually a block or two away, thought nothing about it if they spotted me hacking my way through palmetto thickets or climbing a tree to look at a birds nest.

I can't believe that because one 'dog walker' called about the girls that the cops showed up, chased them out and knocked down their 'fort'.

ASBO means Antisocial Behavior Order, something we don't have over here. Apparently over there it's like a visit from DCF, a warning from the cops or a restraining order. They usually give them out to adults who are being a PIA to their neighbors.

Kids today have a mess to deal with. If they're not being chastised for sitting inside all day playing video games and talking on cell phones, the media is warning them about 'Stranger Danger' and pervs lurking outside their doors, how the sunlight will turn them into masses of cancer and pollution will make them sick.

Now, those brave enough to venture forth and have some healthy play, have the cops called on them for acting suspiciously. If they dare to express themselves with sidewalk chalk through drawings or making hopscotch layouts, their local counsels get all upset and accuse them of vandalism.

I ran into the occasional cop as a kid, who asked what I was doing, took one look at a fort I was building or listened to my explanation, then told me to be careful and drove off. They usually didn't even blink if I happened to be carrying a machete.

I think today, some young boy caught in the woods carrying one of those long knives might wind up facing a SWAT team and get tazed or shot with a bean bag.

They've got to let kids be kids.

To clarify further: The PIA that you're referring to is usually downright Thuggery. It's an ever-growing culture over there, and a GENUINE problem of lower-class areas.

I've no idea if you know what hooliganism is, but you should see rival gangs attack each other over there - it's brick-shyte-in-your-pants crazy to witness. These are human beings who have had it instilled in them to be nothing other than aggressive towards others, who will take great revelry in farking your face in with a wine bottle until your own mother wouldn't recognize your corpse, and then bragging about it to their mates. At the age of 14.

I've lived in such an area (The 'Jungle', Burnbank, Scotland), and I've witnessed more violence and bloodshed on the streets there, in 3 years, than my home city, here, sees in 5 years. No joke.

Indeed.  Let the Brits add rugby-style tackling to football (soccer for us Americans), and I'll certainly avoid questioning the manliness of some of the players.

/World Cup can be quite entertaining to watch, but I think that both the fouler and the foulee should both be tased repeatedly whenever blood is not spilled or a limb very obviously broken.  At that point, the stupid drama of faking injuries would drop and we could get back to watching the game...

Nope, not if you've ever read Field and Stream magazine.  Google Patrick F. McManus, his stories and books are hilarious!
