Spot the error!


Blame Menocchio. Fixed now. I'm off to hand back my grammar nazi membership card.


Menocchio's fault, was it? I expected better of both of you! This shame cupcake is yours.

More concerning to me was the use of the term "nudist colony"; those who like to play clothes-free volleyball much prefer "naturist resort".

Anyways, a few points if anyone can identify where the said resort is - a bit of Googling didn't immediately find it. Though I'll understand if people who are at work don't feel inclined to search on "+Frostrup +nudist" ...

I didn't find a nudist resort in Frostrup, but I did find a nudist beach in Houstrup.

Amongst the list of nudist/naturist resorts in Denmark from a website (naturistnet.org):

.."Lillebælt close to Middelfart on Funen Island."


Nuff said, really.

And speaking of, since I can't be bothered to find the Rolling News thread, this was up a few days ago:

Quote:
A computer error caused a traffic jam when a gas station in Cincinnati started selling petrol at 1.40 instead of 4.10.

The error meant that cars from all over the area were trying to get the cheap gas. The error was displayed for three hours, until the sheriff's deputies insisted that the station should be shut down.

The store clerk said one of the main problems was that he did not know how to fix the problem himself and that he could not contact the manager.


The numbers in bold are my addition; they weren't in the original.


Thanks for putting those in. I swear I put those in previously and got deleted for some reason. Now it's happened again. I think there is a problem in the QI website.

Good work reddy!

I can only find one place on the maps called Frostrup; it's a small town in mainland Denmark about 35 miles west of Ålborg. It's not on the coast, so if it does have a naturist resort it isn't a beach one.

It seems that, while there are some official naturist resorts in Denmark, in practice naturism is allowed on all beaches except the few which have signage specifically forbidding it. And since there's plenty of Danish coast north of Frostrup, there are plenty of more northerly places where clothes-free recreation would be permitted. The same is true in Norway, so it's possible to take to the beach clothes-free a long, long, way north of Frostrup.

The northernmost official naturist venue which I can find is the Djupvika beach in Trondheim, Norway. That's at about 63.4°N, compared to Frostrup's 57.1°N. Its webpage (no nudity) makes the rather wonderful statement "Sun all day (when not overcast)". There is a commonly used although not officially sanctioned one very much further north still at Sand (67.2°N). Its webpage warns one "do not expect too much from the temperatures in the water"!

Guess what is No1 in a Google search using Frostrup+nudist?

Hell no! Point me to the nearest volcano. I'm still after that wench for what she said about Steve Irwin.

She has since become known in this house as "Germaine Sneer".

Frøstrup is a town, some 30 km from where I live. 5 kilometers outside the town there is a hippie-rebel kinda commune, that has NEVER been a nudist camp. There are some 200 people living there,since 1970. They dont pay rent or tax or do much more then get high.
A farmer owns the land they live on and is happy to have them staying.Full name: Frøstruplejren (Frøstrup Camp) or ThyLejren.
http://www.123hjemmeside.dk/thylejren

"Thylejren (the Thy Camp) is a free place in the sense that it contains Life, displays Life, it’s complications, it’s developments. It has space for odd characters, imaginative artists, caring mothers and fathers, shamans and many more. It is both part of Denmark and the society we are all part of and at the same time withdrawn from unconscious consumer’s race.
Thylejren is a social experiment in it’s 40’th year! "

Its a miniature of Christiania, Copenhagen.
Mariella is what we call: Very blond ;)

I'm still Googling "nude Mariella Frostrup" images.

I'll be back soon. Well, not really soon, but once I get to the last of them*.


*Possibly 2013 at this rate.
