    "We advised them they were under arrest for public intoxication,"

    let me confirm that yes, its real

    you are not allowed to walk around with open containers of alcohol

    there are exceptions but for the most part its not allowable. It might vary in some other states, can't say for sure

    well I knew that. but that the police really brings this to the court is ridicoulus. on the other hand when I was a kid I was on vacation in the USA and my dad drunk some beer in a national park. the rangers had him pour him out the whole can ...

    its a misdemeanor so its just a bullshit fine they have to pay, not like they're gonna be sent to jail, other than the holding cell they were probably put in overnight to sleep it off

    I'm not saying I agree with it but its just how shit is

    play many uncensored video games in Germany? ;)

    I find it totally absurd and hilarious that someone can be put in jail and brought to court for that. What the fuck :lol:

    "court" in this instance means they're brought before the local judge the next morning, plead guilty, get issued a small fine and are released

    if they don't pay the fine in the specified amount of time then they might issue a warrant

    Yeah, I moved from Denmark to Ireland and was kinda shocked when I found out I was not allowed to drink in public/walking around with a open beer.

    where else would you drink when you're 14?
    parents certainly won't allow it, so we had to drink somewhere else...
    oh how I wish I was 14 again ;)

    dunno, never played many video games...always busy seeing tits and pussy on the regular television...in the afternoon ;)

    ....I may be a nerd, but I've always preferred pussy to nazi-zombies....so if I have to choose which censorship is worse....you lose ;)

    abandoned train station for us :D

    secluded spot with no road for 1 km on either side and a path leading to it through some woods to make it easier to sneak alcohol (and chicks) there. Had a fire pit, radio, mattress, couch, a rope swing and a little concrete hole where we could hide and store our beer

    damn good times :)

    The fact that you see that as quite a minor thing just goes to show how different our policing is....

    Parents cared about you drinking at 14? Really?

    I agree but its just how shit is ... can't really say more than that

    I'm fairly certain just about every country has things about it that someone else may find odd

    wanna really compare our strip joints to yours???
    haha

    dude, the hookers in Hamburg for example are like 19-24yrs old and look like from american pie 6.......
    not the meth whores you guys have....
    and another thing....we can drink alcohol in all the strip clubs (even the ones that show pussy...well, all them do over here, lol)...
    you won't win that comparison ;)
