Here, police can't arrest you for public nudity if you're on your own property, so they usually just annoy you with tickets until you give up. After a few tickets for your grass being too high, or for your car being too far from the curb, most people would just go inside.

Wait...so, in the Netherlands, the police can ticket you for neglecting your lawn, but they can't arrest you for exposing your naked body to the public so long as you're within your property line? Call me an ignorant closed-minded American, but that seems very ironic and hypocritical to me.

I am not a lawyer and this is not legal advice.... That's true in several U.S. states as well, including my own home state of Massachusetts. It's perfectly legal to be nude on your own property, even outdoors, so long as you're not actually doing anything lewd or obscene. (You won't, however, make any friends among your neighbors, and the cops might have a talk with you to let you know you're offending the neighbors and they might suggest that you cut it out.) This is NOT true everywhere. In Virginia, Eric Williamson made the news when he got arrested for indecent exposure. He went to his kitchen in the nude at (he claimed) 5:30 in the morning to make himself a cup of coffee before taking a shower, and one of the neighbors happened to look in his window and saw him. He was eventually found not guilty, but nonetheless, this case would seem to suggest that simple nudity on your own property is not flat-out legal in Virginia the way it is in Massachusetts.

I realize that different cultures have different attitudes about nudity & that laws reflect that, but you'd think a government so free with public nudity would be less tight ass about lawn care. If the cops can tell you to mow your lawn, they should be able to tell you to wear clothes in public view

I don't always agree with doc, but wow. Have to on this one. Josef fritzl was a monster. Regardless of what his defense attorney said on the first day of court.

Whoa... Two mods in one thread? I feel like I just witnessed the first sunrise. My freedom fighter popped out. It seeped out and was influenced by reading articles on mind control, followed by reading this FML thread. Here, Alan. Let me help you put those m&ms up there. *offers m&ms* Regular or peanut? If you want to get fancy, there are pretzel and peanut butter varieties.
