While the carpenter may have been acquitted of indecency, he should expect a citation from OSHA for unsafe work practices, as in really, really bad splinters.

Not something I would be willing to try.

Part of a customers recommendation letter for a pneumatic wood splitter: "a few weeks ago with a sunny spell and summer coming up I was able to accomplish my splitting chores in the nude - something I certainly wouldn't attempt with a hammer and wedge!"

I'm starting to have serious personal problems with this attitude/law/enforcement. Like the young lady that was recently chastized on airlines for dressing skimpily, or the arresting people with baggy pants.

Sure, I think the baggy pants are ridiculous, and laugh while watching a person wearing them cross the street in a hurry. I also understand the real reasons they are in 'fashion' (especially after watching a 12 gauge emerge from some on E. Main.). But like the nude carpenter, or me walking around my house (or sometimes outside) nude, the issue isn't the person wearing nothing, the issue is with the person viewing it, and not liking what they see.

The nude carpenter wasn't having sexual thoughts.. he was "comfy", like I am when I take down some garbage.. or getting something from the garage. Heck, I've even welded nude (not recommended, but it was so hot in the garage that...).

Maybe it's time to use that power of religious "freedom" and its protections: "Officer, my religion requires that I be nude, baring myself to God, as much as possible.".

yep...this is a real bummer, "I also understand the real reasons they are in 'fashion' (especially after watching a 12 gauge emerge from some on E. Main.)." definitely something that teachers and principals do NOT want to deal with.

off note...glad to see everyone! :) polly
