The naked nurse and the man with the camera


It's nice to be distracted from the news now and again with something like this.

Woman sunbathes naked in her garden. Next door neighbour films her on his camcorder. She gets prosecuted, but he doesn't.

The other thing I can't understand is why, in cases such as the above and also this, nudity is perceived as being harmful to children. Are children supposed to grow up believing that your clothes become welded to you as soon as you become an adult? If I were a child, I'd find that thought more scary than any number of wrinkly boobs in my next door garden.

Where's Benny Hill when you need him?

I have of late, but wherefore I know not, lost all my mirth and indeed it goes so heavily with my disposition that this goodly frame the earth seems to me a sterile promontory; this most excellent canopy the air, look you, this mighty o'erhanging firmament, this majestical roof fretted with golden fire; why, it appeareth nothing to me but a foul and pestilent congregation of vapours. What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, how like an angel in apprehension, how like a God! The beauty of the world, paragon of animals; and yet to me, what is this quintessence of dusk? Man delights not me, no, nor women neither, nor women neither.
