Didn't you know that there are more people dying from alcohol and drunk drivers than from cigarettes?? so the next thing is banning the alcohol (Yes Svein and Perk).


I already suggested on another thread that I'd like to see some alcohol-free pubs, & anyway I don't smoke, don't drink, don't take drugs, don't eat meat & don't drive. Running around with no clothes on is one of my few vices! :D

If that's so.. why would you want go inside a pub in the first place?? Why not visit a church instead?? Makes no sence to me at all.. people who don't drink going into the pub.. complaining about people drinking & smoking :shock: :shock: :shock: It's like going to a R&R consert just to complain about loud music :lol: :lol:

Why don't you just open a non-smoking, alcohol-free pub for nude people?!? I might drop in for a glas of milk (on the rocks!!) someday :lol: :lol:

I don't know about in Sweden, but in the UK they often have live bands in pubs, & occasionally I want to see them.

Actually I wasn't too serious about banning alcohol, but I went into a pub a few weeks ago (just before the smoking ban) & had to leave after a few minutes because I nearly choked to death! Now I will start seeing bands in pubs once in a while.

Pubs and Pies

Postby Tony Papard » Thu Jul 12, 2007 11:27 am

Like Peter, I'm not a great drinker. I go to pubs to see 'live' bands or entertainers, to meet up with friends, to have a meal in a pub, or sometimes for a pub quiz. I hardly ever go just to drink alcohol.

In fact I usually buy a beer just because I feel obliged to for using their premises, but if I have more than about two or at most three pints I get a headache, so don't enjoy drinking alcohol. The pub environment has certainly become better since they banned smoking.

Drinking and socializing in pubs can also be very expensive indeed if you are a non-drinker, or can only drink small amounts. You end up paying about £10 for a round of drinks, and just drinking about a pint and a half of beer yourself which would have cost you less than half that.

I'd prefer to be able to buy a round of meat pies in such places, now I could REALLY tuck into them all night!

So next time I see any of you in a pub, just buy me a big, juicy steak and kidney pie, and forget the alcohol.

I think it is a culture difference here. At least where i live far north. Maybe more south from the Stockholm area and downwards you´ll find similar things in Sweden.

But up here in the north you goto a pub to drink, no matter if your other intentions are to listen to a band, meet friends, chase women, gamble or whatever, it´s DRINKING that makes up most of it. On the other hand people here don´t go out very often. The pub culture i know from britain is not really what it is here. Maybe i seen too many English TV series?

Same here Peter, but my dilemma nowadays after the ban is oxygen poisoning.

:P

The protest today went very well indeed! :D

Nine of us showed up in the end (7 females & 2 males including myself). Most got naked & posed for pics (with strategically placed banners!), others took pics or gave words of encouragement, but everyone's presence was invaluable.

I'll be adding my photos of this to my site in the coming days, & I'm sure everyone else will add their own photos to their MySpace /deviantART (etc) sites too. Hopefully we'll get some positive publicity in the press over this, though I really think the impact will be felt more in the long term by keeping the beach in the spotlight.

OK, back to the darkroom... 8)

You guys do it good!! Myself i never even wore a pair of shorts in my life. Though i´m a swimmer and spend most days in the summer at the beach when i can. But then i´m mostly in the water with swimming pants. Only on the beach for a smoke or so, to strengten the lungs and get more energy.

We have a beach here where even surfers can have their joy. But they are usually to scared to get far out enough like me. Basically a bunch of sissys who´s scared of underwater streams etc. I got caught in one of them once. Damn how quickly you were moved from the other end to the next! Incredible! But it ain´t that dangerous, maybe for children and people who can´t swim.

But for nudist, i think there´s no area around here for them. Possibly further down south in Sweden. I´m not sure.

Underwater currents, etc.

Postby Tony Papard » Sun Jul 15, 2007 12:50 am

I always stay within my depth at the seashore. Ever since foolishly bathing when the red flags were out in Lloret-di-Mar in Catalonia, Spain in 1992. I almost convinced myself red flags in Catalonia just meant Socialist Revolution not dangerous sea, but just to be sure I made certain I went in for my 'dip' near the lifeguards' hut.

I soon got into difficulties, finding I was swimming against the tide and couldn't get back to the shore, or even back to my depth. It was really scary. What was more, in the rough sea I was scared of being dashed against some jagged rocks.

I waved and shouted 'Help!' for the first time in my life, and my friend Brian, who was listening to my Walkman thru earphones, thought I was just waving and waved back smiling idiotically! 'Take the earphones off, you bloody fool, or I'm gonna drown!'

Then a big hunky lifeguard dove in to save me. But if I hoped he'd put his arms around me, swim me to the shore and then give me the kiss of life I was sadly mistaken. All he grabbed hold of was my thumb, told me to swim alongside him at an angle to the shore, and that wey we got back safely. He then scolded me for being so stupid as to go in when the red flags were out.

I also like swimming in any natural water, such as a couple of lakes/ponds in London parks where swimming is allowed. Nobody raised any objections at these places to women taking their tops off, it has become more or less the norm in the past 20 years or so.

HA HA! I know that thing, swimming againts the tide. You´re stuck no matter how hard you swim.

The thing is, you shall not go out alone. To have a good friend with you that is preferably a proffessional swimmer is ABC.

Pete, I think you're turning into a media whore! "Saucy photographer" now appears to be a formal sobriquet. I can see you ending up on the sofa on GMTV before too long!

There is so much comedic potential in all this... is the beach really called 'Foreness Point off Palm Bay" - that sounds just like a euphemism for 'seeing to yourself' from the old Barrie MacKenzie comic strip...
