I'm sorry - what does this have to do with the US election?

The Canadians don't have better slang than "touching yourself at home" or "indecent act in public?" That's the real crime here.

ROFL, item.

Actually, it's more like crying than laughing.

Well, we need a bit of laughter right now. A large belly laugh.

Oh hell. We're really all doomed, aren't we?

My old mum says "windows are for looking out of, not for looking into". There does seem to be some logic in there somewhere (unless you own a shop of course).

How about this piece of French news (unrelated story), they use a delightful term!

DrDoberman - now that's funny. the poor statue... they don't really give any gory details, but just looking at the wear pattern on the patina you can see what the "lewd rubbing" really is.

A neighbour viewed Clark masturbating from her own apartment and called police.

Why oh why would that even occur to her? Did the thought "I could just look away," or even the thought "Maybe I could leave an anonymous note in his mailbox telling him to close the drapes" ever occur to her?

When the lesbian couple across from my window forgot to close the blinds, I called my neighbors and invited them upstairs.

I remember seeing a threesome in the apartment across the alley. It wasn't as good as it sounds....

Threesomes are a bit like golf, dull to watch but fun to participate in ;) Please, no comments about 18 holes!
