Google are rebadging Street View as "Ogle Streak View".
A 38-year-old Australian woman, who flashed her bresticles at a Google Street View spycar, has been accused of disorderly behaviour. Alarmingly, Oz cops claimed that the alleged fleshy exposure back in January was "the same as someone flashing their genitals and the public expectation is that we take action." An image of …
Someday we will decide that boobs are no more or less exciting than any other body part: when attached to the person to whom one is, um, attached, they can be a source of great joy but when attached to someone else (parents, co-workers, Margaret Thatcher naked on a cold day, &c) they are just biology. Alas, today is not the day and tomorrow doesn't look promising either.
At the end of the spectrum, wasn't there some suggestion 4 - 5 years ago that Australian censors were to ban A-cup size or smaller, 'cos they might be mistaken for underage girls?
Sounds like a Goldilocks complex - these are too big, these are too small, but these ones are legal.

There were rulings by the Australian government / courts that banned pornography (video or stills) that featured women who "looked underage" regardless of their actual age. It was suggested / implied by this that women with small breasts would get included in this, essentially being banned from pornography in Australia. Though obviously a woman in her fifties with small breasts would not be caught by the law, in practice it means that many women in their twenties (potentially even thirties in some cases) might be ruled "underage porn" because they had small breasts. The law passed in 2005. I don't know if it's ever been modified or how much it was applied so cannot comment on that.
An Australian senator is on record as saying that pornography of women with small breasts "encouraged paedophilia".
The SA police need to have a quick anatomy refresher, I think. Boobs aren't the same as genitals no matter who's flashing them.
Methinks this is more of a "we can't let her get away with it, because someone complained, and we can't look like we're not doing anything" reaction. Hopefully, the judge has a better sense of humor.
I mean, of course, the Australian policemen confusing milk production glands with the bits below and in back of the hairy region further down. Australian educational standards have already provided a PM of international laughing stock status, now they appear to have produced policemen who were clearly asleep during biology classes.
Come on, Australians. The country that produced Clive James and Germaine Greer needs to get its act together. Giving Prince Philip a knighthood and now this.
"And, readers with dodgy tickers take note: "I didn’t give any old man a heart attack – that I’m aware of," Davis warmly added. ®"
Having now seen the body parts in question, they are a bit intimidating. May be she was doing some not-so-ancient (South) Australian fertility dance or something.
Paris - I can but dream.
"Double standards again, men can walk around topless, why can't women! Aussie police see icon!"
This is exactly the logic which led New York to make it legal for women to walk around topless in public. I always like it when a Republican mayor actually does something involving keeping the government from interfering in what are actually people's personal affairs, and which only affect other people if they choose to be affected.
>Tits are for children (literally)
Children enjoy them for a couple of years maybe. I've found them a reasonably integral part of having sex for the last 20 years. I pity you for missing out!
I suspect the internet agrees with the idea that breasts are for sex, but that should be taken under advisement. It isn't true for everyone everywhere.
Yes, PC is rubbish and this is not important enough to get the PCs involved.
South Australia, and Adelaide in particular, was founded by religious nutjobs who were determined to build a city and state without the use of convict labour. Hence why the proportion of churches to pubs is opposite to that of the rest of the country.
Facepalm icon, cos we don't have a motorboating one available.
"It amuses me because what about the drug dealers of the town, the murders that have happened in this town, shouldn’t you be focusing on that?"
No, flashing your boobs should result in the firing squad, ditto for speeding - that's just plain wrong.
But when an Australian is caught selling drugs in Indonesia, and the law over there dictates the death penalty, every fucking Australian, and every fucking politician get together to save their lives and bring them back.
I've had enough, I'm going to planet Splong.
It must have been about 1980 a mate gleefully told me Aussies call tits 'top bollocks'. Not sure why I've tended to think of them as more progressive than us Brits. Same ol' same ol' I s'pose: the one's who came here are. Like the Yanks who come here. And the Brits who go there. Actually I did learn years ago - about when I became first day on the internet kid - that is a massive generalization. Still there is a degree of truth to the one's that never leave are chickenshit.
Probably true to some extent.
If you never travel, you never experience a different cultures, so you never leave any preconceptions behind. This is true for all countries, but especially so for the more insular, geographically more isolated (as Australia was until flights became cheaper, or Ireland until recently (more a religious oriented isolation).
Distracting somebody who's supposed to be concentrating on controlling a couple of tonnes of speeding metal in an urban environment is actually a really bloody stupid thing to do and could easily result in some poor bastard becoming inconveniently dead.
Regardless of how the cops delivered the lesson, it needed delivering.
"Distracting somebody who's supposed to be concentrating on controlling a couple of tonnes of speeding metal in an urban environment"
(a) don't Google use Priuses, which are nowhere near 2 tonnes, and (b) don't they drive fairly slowly in urban areas? If they were doing more than 10mph when they came past our house, I would be amazed.
Obviously you never heard about the deployment of naked women along the roadside in Denmark a few years back. Understandably, the traffic slows down.
And that reminds me of my girlfriend back in the 70s. She and her equally attractive housemate decided to paint the roof. It was a hot day so they wore their bikinis. This was in full view of the main drag into Hobart. They caused a traffic jam :-)
