Yes, but you could come up with some creative April Fools Day pranks in Siberia.  :o

Don't we have a cohort in that neck of the woods? Croatia, Romania, owns a very fine naturist retreat in the hills?

Wouldn't a Siberian Orthodox itself be an April Fools joke?

I have a friend from college that got married on April 1st.
I asked her about that and she said, "No, that was intentional!"  :o ;D
It was appropriate to her personality. Fun to be around.

Nude in the UK explained.  As usual, its clear as mud.  It's not illegal to be naked, but neither is police/government harassment.

The official police guidance (though not necessarily the press guidance...) is quite clear that as long as what you are doing is not illegal (eg breaking the speed limit, robbing a bank, etc) then doing it naked is not illegal. As this is a remote corner of the legal manual, and not often encountered by the average copper, the police do not always know this and so are liable to react wrongly if they are first on the scene. If a member of the public is "first responder" and calls the police, the call centre should be well enough informed to deflect the call.

But of course there is the law, as written, and there is the "law" as in what is socially acceptable, and for some people the public nakedness of others is just that, and it's difficult to enjoy the heatwave pleasure of nakedness while being berated by some outraged passerby. Thus most of us prefer to do out free-ranging out on the range (or in the woods) rather than in the park or down the high street - legal and undisturbed.

It could be worse and sometimes is. Policemen are not lawyers, nor are they hired gunfighters. There are always exceptions, of course, mostly in people's minds. A policeman's job is made difficult in that they exist within a world of expectations that does not necessarily conform to the written law, although parts of the law are quite elastic and can be stretched to fit most any circumstance. It's easy to see how laws about "disturbing the peace," "resisting arrest," and "vagrancy" can be overused. On the other side of the coin, there are plenty of people, as just mentioned, who want the police to do even more than they do or are authorized to do, for one reason or another--but not to them. Essentially, it's like people want some laws enforced very strictly but others not at all (like speed limits). In other words, some people believe very strongly in the law but only as if they wrote all the laws themselves.

But as has been said, there must be order: da muss Ordnung sein!

Case in point:

I remember a masonry subcontractor who wanted the general contractor to make a road for his equipment to navigate to stock his scaffolds. When the general refused the sub called OSHA claiming this was a safety violation by the general. OSHA arrived and, instead of fining the general for the muddy road, they finned the masonry sub for unsafe scaffolds.

Sometimes it is good to view things from more than your own perspective.

Errr...well, Hymie, I agree totally with your conclusion but, pardon my obtuseness, but I don't see what it is we have to view from all angles, despite your obviously didactic anecdote.
Slightly puzzled.

It makes more sense to me if the two paragraphs are separated, just a tad. The first is an anecdote about selective law enforcement. The last paragraph/line was an addendum, but still wise and about the first.

It is a sort of clean up your own side of the street first, a blame thing, I think. OR maybe not.

Now then, has my perspective made it clear as mud?

The sub has ultimate responsibility for his scaffolding and can't be ill equipped? The general needed the work done, so he needed to bend, but didn't? The inspector had a better relationship, or got paid off by the general? The sub got contracted by the general and is biting the hand that feeds him? The general is forcing the sub to set up in circumstance that makes the scaffolding dangerous, or inadequate scaffolding and there was no way around it but the extra road work? The General was too cheap to pay for the road? Both parties are in a spat and the inspector walks into it? Inspectors are a goofy, moody, and an insecure lot, that make decisions based on what they see and to keep them out of their own liabilities. He doesn't see the road problem, or the cause, he only sees that the scaffolding is dangerous? The sub should know better than to invite a bureaucrat into anything. The sub should have seen it coming and have had it written into the contract beforehand?

I dunno, but the comment makes sense to me.
