Man From Hungary Who Is Wearing Short Shorts Everywhere He Goes

Shorts are a garment worn by both men and women over their pelvic area, circling the waist, and covering the upper part of the legs, sometimes extending down to knee but not covering the entire length of the leg. They are called “shorts” because they are a shortened version of trousers, which cover the entire leg. Shorts are typically worn in warm weather or in an environment where comfort and airflow are more important than the protection of the legs.

In British English the term “short trousers” is used, but this term is only for shorts that are a short version of real trousers, e.g. tailored shorts, often lined, as typically worn as part of school uniform for boys up to their early-to-middle teens from roughly 1920 to 1980 (and still in Australia, Singapore, New Zealand and South Africa), and by servicemen and policemen posted overseas to tropical climates. The British-English slang term “short pants” is probably the nearest equivalent in the USA. In the USA, these might nowadays be called “dress shorts” or “walk shorts”, terms which have not gained currency in Britain. A somewhat similar garment worn by men in Australia is called “stubbies”. “Shorts” is used unqualified in British English to refer to sports shorts, athletic shorts, or casual shorts, the last nowadays being in the United Kingdom itself, commonplace in warm weather.

A Man From Norway Who Tried To Smuggle Very Bizzare Cargo

Smuggling is the illegal transportation of goods or persons, such as out of a building, into a prison, or across an international border, in violation of applicablelaws or other regulations.

There are various motivations to smuggle. These include the participation in illegal trade, such as in the drug trade, in illegal immigration or illegal emigration, tax evasion, providing contraband to a prison inmate, or the theft of the items being smuggled. Examples of non-financial motivations include bringing banned items past a security checkpoint (such as airline security) or the removal of classified documents from a government or corporate office.

Smuggling in literature is a common theme, from Bizet’s Carmen to the James Bondbooks (and later films) Diamonds are Forever and Goldfinger.

From Low German schmuggeln or Dutch smokkelen (=”to transport (goods) illegally”), apparently a frequentative formation of a word meaning “to sneak” most likely entered the English Language during the 1600 – 1700s

Smuggling has a long and controversial history, probably dating back to the first time at which duties were imposed in any form, or any attempt was made to prohibit a form of traffic.

In England smuggling first became a recognised problem in the 13th century, following the creation of a national customs collection system by Edward I in 1275. Medieval smuggling tended to focus on the export of highly taxed export goods — notably wool and hides. Merchants also, however, sometimes smuggled other goods to circumvent prohibitions or embargoes on particular trades.
