Always thought they were funny myself. :lol:

WMMLT: As an incident with no strings attached, there was a guy that I used to work with got caught walking through a nearby park wearing nothing but a spiderman mask had to appear in front of magistrates court and has since been put on the sex offenders register.

WUMT: As an incident with strings attached, the guy is massively depressed...has problems at home and with the press coverage and that he's gone and fucked his future: I feel these might send him over the edge. I.e. I am genuinely concerned for his welfare. I mean I didn't really know the guy but I feel bloody sorry for him.

I don't know all the ins and outs. I think it might have been that he might have walked past a minor in the nuddy or something and the guardian wanted to press charges. It's just a bit surreal that you read about this shit. Laugh. Then you notice that you know the person.

It probably depends on the context. If it's a park full of families then it's a bit more serious than walking naked on a beach in Brighton where it happens all the time. And it probably doesn't help wearing a mask, which possibly implies intent to case harm in the view of the police/courts.

Just walking around naked could get you a prison sentence.

that's just so fucking bizarre though.
Being sent to prison for just not covering your genitalia. If you think about it, its a massive violation of human rights essentially.

Hurr hurr.

Seriously though, hope that he doesn't end up with much more than a slap on the wrist and that his future prospects aren't in jeopardy. It could happen to any of us off the back of some stupid act.

Nice to see Liverpool living up to its stereotype...

Probably a bunch of Londoners like all the thieves and beggars around here. :lol:


Seriously though that used to be the classy part of town with good theatres and pubs. Now it's full of smackheads, alcoholics, dodgy foreigners and beggars. Mainly begging off or mugging the students as they are easy targets. The council turns a blind eye as it's PC not to victimise the homeless and foreign scum. Yet if any of us decided to drink or piss/shit in the street then we'll be getting locked up.

My second stint at Starbucks lasted just over a month � Going off to some fancy artisan place to follow my barista dreamz (and get paid more regularly)

It's a quiet area without much passing traffic or pedestrians, on the edge of the city centre in what is mostly a student area. But it has a lot of rough sleepers hanging about.

Funnily enough there used to be a police station opposite. :lol:

Apparently a couple of sneak thieves saw a door open to the venue, took a chance to wander in and struck lucky finding keys laying around. Went outside and they fitted the bus. Bus gone with all the merchandise. I doubt that it was planned.

It's the people in Liverpool who aren't on the nick arouse suspicion. Though a tour bus is a lot more ambitious than stealing dust caps.
