This Would Be Fun To Watch
MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service say that nudists are scaring off rare birds on Passage Key.
The Passage Key was established to protect native birds and serve as a breeding ground for them, but recently has been home to sandbars and is a popular destination for nudists.
“It is a federal crime to walk on the island,” a Fish and Wildlife Service spokesperson told WFLA-TV. “Nudists are allowed to wade in the water off-shore, but are prohibited by law from being on the island.”
If I were a nudist that scared off birds, I think I'd change hobbies.
As an aside:
It's a FEDERAL CRIME to walk on the island.
But if you're wading in a inch of water, you are good to go.(maybe. See -2) below).
The stupidity of bureaucrats is often beyond measure.
Your homework for the weekend:
-1) Define off-shore.
-2) Determine how much water is required by the federal government for you to be legally "wading".
-3) Figure out what is meant mean by the phrase "home to sandbars". What kind of home does a sandbar require?
