    OT: Anyone else think we're loosing too much of our privacy?



    Doesn't every one know that those "private" facilities are just too prone to misuse by druggies and prostitutes. No worries here.

    The gal on the right is probably thinking "Now just how is that going to help ME?"

    I believe that picture is from the Netherlands.

    So, would this be considered Open Carry or Concealed? Would hate to have to surrender my weapon for officer safety! No discussion about being too small for self defense is necessary.

    Eh, heck, in Germany we just used the sides of the buildings if needed. Back to public and all.

    In France that would be referred to as a "pissoir" I believe, although most of the ones I remember in France had a rudimentary screen around them for a pretense of privacy.

    Most Europeans (at least from my experiences living in Germany) think Americans are prudes, but boorish prudes. We don't like using a pissoir, but think public intoxication is ok. Go figure.

    Just think. After 2000 years and they still pee in the streets. Nothing like slow and steady progress.

    Well, a friend of my father once told me. That if I was ever to jump one, I better not miss.
