Well, it's always easy to pass judgement.
Some quite young girls go out and dress in a certain revealing way and wear make-up and look way older than they are. Imagine you're on a party, meet one of those, and it's all very nice, there's been a bit of alcohol, too, and then things proceed. Would anyone in this situation say "Hey, dear, show me your passport first!"?
I don't mean to say that going after 14 year olds is right (when you're over, say, 16 or thereabouts) - if he meant it like this there's something weird. But if he meant that it is harder to accidentally commit statutory rape why imply paedophile thoughts?

The latest (and last, in all likelihood) one, Meet the Pyro, was released earlier this morning. Warning: contains conflagration, immolation, and a landscape that tastes like diabetes.
I was wondering when Pyro's video would come. :D

I heard about something both painful and funny on tonight's Sunday Night (a current affairs program). They were doing a segment on tattoos, and a tattooist related the funniest thing he saw happen in his parlour.

Basically, a man and his girlfriend went into the parlour so that the man could get the name of said girlfriend tattooed on his ribs. This took a while, and once the tattooist was done, the girlfriend then reveals to the man that she knows that he was cheating on her, and dumps him there and then. Now THERE'S a dump to remember! :lol:

Like Bender said in Futurama: "I like my dumps to be as memorable as they are devastating." Of course, in that episode, he dumped a spaceship voiced by Sigourney Weaver. Her eventual reaction was...a little disproportionate. It involved a quasar.

In Germany, Gunther Burpus remained wedged in his front-door cat flap for two days because passers-by thought he was a piece of installation art. Mr Burpus, 41, of Bremen, was using the flap because he had mislaid his keys. Unfortunately he was spotted by a group of student pranksters who removed his trousers and pants, painted his bottom bright blue, stuck a daffodil between his buttocks and erected a sign saying 'Germany Resurgent, an Essay in Street Art. Please give Generously'. Passers-by assumed Mr Burpus' screams were part of the act and it was only when an old woman complained to the police that he was finally freed. "I kept calling for help," he said, "but people just said 'Very good! Very clever!' and threw coins at me."

I'd hate to think where they inserted the coins!
