I reckon you can throw a bit of bestiality , slavery , extortion , domestic violence and you might be there abouts...

That might take you into Friday though

And lets not forget pedophilia, way too many locals try to pick up pre-teen/teen boys.

Judging by the number I've got through in the 3 and a half months since I've arrived, I'm going to burn in hell for all eternity.

Good job I like it warm...

We now need a sub-poll to the poll:

"And which of them have you done with another BE member?"

Default Re: Have you broken the law since being here?

I could potentially have scored 12..but I don't wish to entirely admit to that. But I would consider most of the laws I have broken as part of my formative years, so for my time in Bahrain I think I only got 3. I also don' t consider downloading illegally, illegal. So that actually just leaves me with 2.

I'm really confused. I see a heading about breaking laws followed by a list of mostly interesting things to do in life?

Mostly? Drunk in public, drunk driving, gay sex, sex in public, drugs, robbery, assault, vandalism. Blimey Norm, I think you need a holiday. Or a good talking to, my lad.

YES, almost impossible not to.

Did I enjoy it YES.......Pick the heading and tick those you enjoyed please.

Camels and Donkeys are for local consumption only.

As to setting standards, mine were low before arrival, and thus great change.

Slight correction: no drugs or beating up maids.
