I came across this on another forum and found it brought back some memories. Since being raised in a farming community there are memories of walking the fence line of a pasture, nude of course, as we looked for places the cows could get through. I also remember the outside shower before entering the house.

One of the comments was you could not do that in the US anymore as child protection would be there and the farm would be confiscated. Sorry state that that would be the first thing said after the posting.

Yea, the  reign of terror that CPS has wrought. Just a couple of news horror stories have everyone terrified of an out of bounds nut job making up new laws without due process and imposing them on people.

But what about the children?!!....

That comment is a contagious negative bomb! I just wrote a disgusted rant response, the first thing in this morning and erased it, before posting it here. AND I got up on the right side of bed, before that. 

Well, the farmer mentality of practicality has given us a blessing. This being published is a very good thing.

I had my own run in with CPS after my divorce. People calling my parents to tell them things my ex was doing.She was leaving the child home alone at night to work nightshift and often on weekends to do her thing. When I asked for help the answer was get a lawyer and an investigator. They were too busy for domestic problems.

For our cousins across the pond. A new restaurant in London.

Nude dining. The Bunyadi which has A long waiting list.

It looks like a gimmick, but it's good natured press for those inclined toward the natural dining attire I suppose. With each article the list of patrons gets longer. It's up to 11,000 names in this one.

No mention at all of the cuisine. For some I suppose it doesn't matter. Google "bunyadi" and you will get all sorts of responses to the idea. From humorous to skpetical to anal. One article in The Guardian was downright odd with strange ideas about dining out in general.

At least there is a conversation about normal human bodies.

If they have 11,000 people in line its time to open a 2nd venue. 

It could be a trend, or a chain.

It's a "pop-up" venue - using premises between commercial lets for about 3 months only.

Then its a trial period.   And with 11,000 people wanting to eat there a smart merchant would open a permanent place and maybe another.

Is it get on the bandwagon hype? The cool thing to talk about? In? Using supply and demand to create a kind of false demand? Something very good, but the controller only wants to do it a few months and then go back lying naked on a tropical beach?

If it's a genuine trial period to see how the idea fares, that's fine. They might decide to go all in and make a go of it. But I can't see such a venture lasting much beyond the novelty of it.

But then again, who knows. Stranger things have been successful.

It would last a while in Vegas. Novelty goes on forever there.

There's nothing older than novelty ...

What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.

A sentiment more than 2500 yrs. old.

Believe me in Las Vegas there is nothing new except for the packaging. Some places you can walk into are downright creepy.

Here's a fellow  with a devil-may-care attitude.

The picture is blurry in the distance but it looks like someone is ahead of him. Any of our UK members live in this area? Can't tell if that vest has Roger of Roget on it.

Is there a WNBR in the UK this year?

Usual range of WNBRs as far as I know - London, Bristol, Brighton for certain, can't remember where the others are. Cardiff? Think that one's on again. None that spring to mind in East Anglia, so maybe our Crowfield rider was having his own NBR. At least the news story reflects humour, not horror.

On the other hand, a naked hiker in Wales is bringing out the usual panic reaction.

I dont think it is right," said the witness.

The annoying/worrying bit of the report is added by the newspaper, with no attribution: "Offences for someone being naked in public can range from indecent exposure to a public-order crime. " Reads liek it came from the police, though.
