    Have you seen the guy who never takes off his santa-claus hat? He is often seen around the science-site

    Or the local, with the massive hair and moustache, looks just like one of the scousers off Harry Enfield.
    I think I have actually seen said local down by the riverside wearing some sort of misch match suit.

    Hmm, in Germany (particularly in the East) there is a lot of naturism. Quite scary at times, never know when the naked people might turn up!

    Do the police just let it go ? whenever I'm there the police appear quite harsh, although shy of Berlin I've never been to the former East

    When on tour with a brass band this summer, the german police pulled over our coach for speeding! Apparently we were doing 90Kph, when as a full coach with trailer we should have only been doing 80. €250 fine and we missed the ferry with the delay.

    The police can only do anything if a guy is letting it all show. As long as they cover it with a sock or something, the police can't complain at all.

    Oh and never mess with the Germans when it comes to motoring. The police are very strict to the letter with traffic offences, and they introduced new tougher fines and penalties this April. I did hear a nice story though. The German authorities record points on licences etc in Flensburg near the Danish border. A paper copy of the points is kept for three years, after that the paper is recycled in Denmark and turned into bog-roll.

    Nightmare, when en route to Berlin with our school in year 10 on a coach, we were pulled over at 3am in the morning so that two burly policemen with torches and guns, (the one at the front reportedly had a machinegun lookylikey, but i was near the back so never saw) could shout "PASSPORT" in very accented english. We then fumbled about in our bags to get said passports, and having shown them, they smiled politely and left. Surreal.

    I don't know how many people know about the paper being used as toilet roll in Denmark. I read it in this magazine "NEON" (for 20- / 30-somethings) in a section of short useless but interesting facts that they do.
