Psst, "building permission"
I preferred to translate it as Erection Permit.

It appealed to my sense of Swissness.

Is that because it is a One-eyesore?

I'd like to say "touché" but I'd be worried about what you lot would say...

"touché"
Isn't that something boys say while they're playing with their swords?

Do you know how many people are breaking that law and how often? With a permit needed for erection, that would make the government rich in no time!

Re: Toplessness laws?

but who would handle the permit procedure, and what would the fine for an illegal erection be?

To be fair, the Swiss are quite good at this. You often see framework displaying the desired size of their erections.

Re: Toplessness laws?

I don't want to stop the gents comparing their erections in any way, but only shortly answer the original question: it isn't even illegal to go naked (unless explicitely written in some local rules, say the rules of a badi), so topless is ok.

What about the calculation of the angles? Who are in charge for that?

The angle of the dangle is inversely proportional to the heat of the beat

Re: Toplessness laws?

For Swiss people it is not the size that matters but the Swissness and therefore assumed Swiss quality...

not being from Zurich and not knowing the locals.. I would have to say it depends:

were said knickers skimpy ?,
new?
any skids?,
could they reasonably pass as swimming attire?
One should never have them um...ugh...skidmarks you refer to, only when you were young and hadn't developed ways to always avoid them (which are fackin obvious), to some (most) of us I think..

So after spending a good deal of yesterday sat by the Limmat but not having a swimsuit so I could go in the Limmat, I was beginning to get severely tempted to just strip down to my knickers and dive in.

But this is Switzerland.

Just how much trouble would I get in, if I'd actually done that?

no one would have really cared except you

Re: Toplessness laws?

back to topic, if you go to Rote Fabrik on a hot day skinny dipping is the norm.
