        You may wish to consider the potential implications of that comment and perhaps qualify it with 'after reaching the legal age of consent'...

          I thought it was Protestants who only had sex on every 3rd Birthday once they have both reached the age of consent in their local constituency and/or country?

    Security guards suffer this all the time

    in any place with a public accessed restroom. All sorts of street couples doing the ugly (SWITD) in the restrooms, blocking doors.

    what's even worse is how often the act is PAID for, in trade, cash or hobo-dollars.

    Yeah, most prostitutes are NOT "Pretty Woman". Think People of Wal Mart and you've got the reality..

      What are hobo-dollars and what does SWITD mean ?

      I am not sure something like this would bother me too much I would be too detached from it.

      (With certain family members present I would welcome it as it might redress the balance a bit in terms of something that would annoy them as much as they annoy me the rest of the time).

    Possible the "ex" of one of the couple staged it? It's amazing what $20 will buy you on the streets these days... All the same it's nice publicity - remind me to book them for the venue of a product roll out that I'm organizing in a couple of weeks.

    It was me and my female colleague from the IT team in the company next door from the church. We took a small little break from administering the old Windows NT servers. We haven't even started having fun when we got arrested.

    I think it is unjust. If we had sex on the old servers and broke something, where would we buy a replacement PC still able to run the OS?

    This being Salt Lake City and all, the question must surely be asked. Were they wearing Mormon magical underwear?

    I think the IT angle in all of this is that until the Internet all we knew of such goings on was most likely confined to a three mile radius of where we actually lived. Now it's basically the land surface of the entire planet. With 7 billion people to choose from, the probability is that, no matter how nasty, someone somewhere is doing almost anything you can imagine with someone else. When Andy Warhol made the remark about in the future everyone would have fifteen minutes of fame, he omitted to mention why. Now we know.

      Re: Mormons?

      I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the largest Mormon sect). Please refer to us as LdS to distinguish us from the FLDS and other splinter groups.

      Salt Lake City is only 40% LdS, despite hosting the world-wide Headquarters and largest LdS temple (two separate buildings).

      The LdS Church sees all sex outside the bonds of marriage, so if this couple are LdS they were acting outside the teachings of the Church. The LdS also has one of the largest charities in the world, so very few members live on the street.

      Not all LdS wear temple garments - just those who have been through the temple. These garments are holy vestments, but not considered magic. Many other sects have clergy where the ministry is their full-time employment. The LdS Church has a lay clergy and open priesthood, so our holy vestments were designed to not get in the way of our 9 to 5 while still serving as a reminder of our covenants.

      Finally, the couple was outside a Catholic chapel. Btw, Catholicism is the second largest denomination in Utah.

        So you believe in a religeon partly based on the Christianity myths, but also the 'Book of Mormon' - that was written by sticking 'seer stones' in a hat?!

        And I thought Scientologists were guillible....quality stuff this - you couldn't make it up. Oh - wait.

            Re: Mormons?

            Even If I did want to try and read an imaginary language, sticking my head in a hat with some rocks isn't very high up the list of how I might try and do it.

            However If I wanted to mountebank the gullible, well then perhaps it sounds good...

            Just to note "Scholarly reference works on languages do not, however, acknowledge the existence of either a "reformed Egyptian" language or "reformed Egyptian" script as it has been described in Mormon belief. No archaeological, linguistic, or other evidence of the use of Egyptian writing in ancient America has been discovered"

      "With 7 billion people to choose from ... Andy Warhol made the remark about in the future everyone would have fifteen minutes of fame"

      Maths was not Warhol's strong point. There are not enough 15 minutes in the remaining existence of the human race for everyone to have that much fame. I would prefer to say that quite a few people get 15 seconds of fame. 15 seconds is, for example, about the time that TV news will spend interviewing a bystander who has just witnessed some disaster or other.
