It's a Crazy World we Live in!
Well, at least those of us living in Romania. Here's a piece of news reported by Bogdan (in Romanian): Two 30 year olds have been taken to the police station and fines with about 150 EUR for.....the crime of all crimes!!!...swinging in a park!!! Yes, people, the dared use the swings in the park.

When was this prohibited? I have never seen signs for NO SWINGING...The couple is now trying to get the fine annulled.

So, all the rapists, murderers, thieves and all other types of wrong-doers are caught and are now being punished, therefore, two people swinging in a park are the top priority of the Romanian Police! All thumbs down please.

Things like these are why I laugh so hard when I see the Police slogan: "Safety and Trust". Right!

    Didn't you know? It's one of the most retarted laws passed. You're forbidden to use the swings&co in public acces parks (I mean those with no entrace fee) if you're over 14 or something close to that age. You can only sit on the benches.

    OMG, I had no idea...That is so stupid! But there still need to be warnings there. Not everyone is aware of this law.

    And besides, it is indeed stupid! Why ban something so nice and relaxing? I bet they can make strong enough swings that won't break if you're an adult.

    And besides, at 15 and 16, I still loved swings. Who decided you have to be a grown up at 14? What happened to 18 as an age for legally becoming an adult?

    I'm not sure about the age at all. Maybe it's 17, maybe it's 12; it's 18- anyway. I remember some of the parks displaying such a message a while ago...
