Indian Givers. No, I take that back.

I'm having trouble understanding why people don't like public nudity.

Next time you're out, try to imagine the people around you nude. The sad fact is that most people don't have any business being nude in public, and the one in ten nude people who do (or fewer) generally don't make it worthwhile (I get this emperically from people who have experienced nude parks in Europe).

I'd bet that those fat nude people don't give a crap what you think about how they look or they wouldn't do it.

I'll second this... my boyfriend has never voted, and it bugs me whenever I think about it (which isn't too often, luckily!)...

To share the roads with bikes ...

.... or why they look at me strange when I throw water bottles at them after they almost hit me.

In defense of Jordanb, I actually agree with him. You don't want to see ME, for example, striding around in the buff.

Otherwise, I'll second Surrealistic Pillow (Jefferson Airplane ruled!), and sushi, and I'll add:

Dogs!

Thai-style chili fish sauce

Chocolate, and

A good dark, chocolatey stout.

I concur about children and chocolate, and I'd like to add:

music

I knew a woman who said she didn't enjoy listening to music, period. I just can't get my mind round that as music is so important to me.

California. Fifth largest economy in the world. Birth place of high-tech. It's a long list.

Whose to say who has business being nude? You could say the same about ugly people-maybe they shouldn't show their faces in public? Just becuase YOU'RE not attracted to a certain type doesn't mean that they "don't have any business" doing something they enjoy.

Being nude in public rarely has sexual connotations. The sex is all in your head.


Anyway....
I have trouble understanding people who:
hit/spank their children in public places, or at all.

wine and cheese. Someone looked at me like I was crazy for suggesting a wine and cheese party. *YUM*

I'll agree with almost everybody here. Except (sort of) RichmondJake. California is a love/hate kind of place.

Mendelman - Is that a Ford Country Squire? Sweet!

Habanero - I have a couple wines picked out, and I'll bring some fine Wisconsin cheese. When is the party?

I agree, yet I have an even harder time understanding crappy parents who refuse to ever discipline their kids. My girlfriend and I were dining at a local bar/restaurant that caters to the adult crowd. All throughout dinner we had to deal with these kids running around, bumping our chairs, standing on their chairs, jumping off chairs, throwing food on the floor, etc. Not once did the mom, dad, or grandparents say anything...and why they brought their kids to this place is beyond me.

I have a hard time understanding people who insist on bringing their pets everywhere they go. Why anyone has to bring their dog to the grocery store or a restaurant and leave them in the car is beyond me.

If you want one let me know. We are in the process of buying a 140 acres for conservancy, and there are over two dozen Country Squires scattered around the property. I'm sure the estate reps would be happy if they were gone (and so would I).

RichmondJake - Why yes, they are California wines. I thought perhaps a Duckhorn Cabernet-Merlot blend and a Franke Chardonney. Perhaps a St. Supery Muscato would add nicely.

Chet - Is there a 1970 wagon with a 351 Cleveland in the mix?

The odds are in your favor. There are more Ford wagons there than at Zimbrick

I have trouble understanding people who don't like the ocean. Give me stinging refreshing salty ocean water over murky slimy lake water most any day.

From Maurice's Piggy Park BBQ in Columbia, SC. I used to buy a case of his Carolina Gold mustard BBQ sauce every time I drove through but I haven't had any since Maurice showed himself to be a neo-confederate nut-job and started flying confederate flags at his stores and slapping it on all his products. I just can't give him my money in good conscience Best damn sauce, period. I've looked for substitutes but they are hard to find down in SC, much less here in Pennsylvania.
