Entirely not new worthy...
...right up until the last sentence!
Keen Swedish cops deployed a helicopter and sniffer dogs last weekend after three clothes-light German women got lost in the woods. The naturist trio, aged 40, 50 and 56, set off at 4pm Sunday on a butt-naked jaunt from their holiday cottage by Långasjön lake, outside Karlshamn in the south of the country. Pals called for …
The cops were called when they failed to return from they're hike. So this was a search and rescue operation (which luckily turned out not to be required). This had nothing to do with the fact they were naturists.
Seriously, try reading the article next time rather then auto-ranitng a Daily Fail response...
But were they suitably prepared for their trip in the wilderness?
Lack of warm clothing, no torches, lack of map/compass etc.
If it had been someone climbing a mountain in jeans and tshirt we would be calling them a f***ing idiot.
Some people should really think out what they are doing before they do it.

Bloke didn't even have the sense to wear a t-shirt. Extreme fuck*king idiot, I guess, by your definition.
But, You are Wize.
"They were reported as missing, and the police searched for them. What else do you expect them to do?"
Obviously, the OP was lulled into apathy by the state of their own police forces. Any missing persons reports to the local plod are usually met with "meh".
Perhaps the reason for the, ahem, urgency was the tips on tantilizing Teutonic tetons?
I believe they were worried about their safety - not attempting to prevent them from doing what they were doing. That is, unless you were being sarcastic :-)
On a different note, I take it they didn't describe their 'ordeal' in English - so then, what is the equivalent of 'grope in the dark' in Swedish (or German) then?
>Should leave them alone, they're not harming anyone.
>Society shows inability to set priorities properly again.
I think the point is not that they were naked, but that they were lost and hadn't come back.
In this respect, they could have been harmed themselves, so it's entirely appropriate to send a rescue team in to rescue them.
Means that they are more exposed to the elements - I would assume that they might have had some clothes in rucksacks, but even then the clothes would have taken up room normally used for survival things such as a cooker, fuel, food, water, first aid kit, mobile phone, gps, caravan etc.
Therefore finding three people turns quite quickly into something to worry about since they are far more likely to deteriorate more quickly than clothed hikers.
Except for that lad that performed a half-marathon with just a pair of shorts (as seen on Discovery) on a -20ºC climate, I doubt these women would endure any harsh change in weather for long. (I bet they were not under such circumstances, anyway.)
Perhaps only Navy SEALS would be able to accomplish this feat, since they can maul any wild beast with their bare hands. Or so I heard, for their advanced survival training, where they can only bring a knife and a raincoat, and are supposed to survive 3 days in the wilds...
I would ask for pictures if they were at least 10 years younger.
"Keen Swedish cops deployed a helicopter and sniffer dogs last weekend after three clothes-light German women got lost in the woods."
"The naturist trio, aged 40, 50 and 56, set off at 4pm Sunday on a butt-naked jaunt..."
.... oh snap, yuck.
"They told officers they'd gone astray shortly after departure, and had spent the last hour of their ramble "groping around in the dark""
For God's sake so I missed the line where their pals had called for the search and accepted the implication in the article's title at face value. So this is an excuse to chuck insults around ? Get a life, preferably where you don't have a need to do down others to booster your own sense of self worth..
They weren't trying to "booster their own confidence" by putting you down. They were pointing out that you had a serious failure in understanding the article which could have been easily rectified, and which genuinely made you look like an idiot.
They weren't making you out to be an idiot, you were doing fine at that yourself and obviously don't need any assistance. You missed several references to them having been lost not to mention the fact that they never claimed the trio had been arrested, or what they would be arrested for.
Serious sense of humour failure.
