    First Senator Larry Craig. Now this?

    Now having been in the restrooms both at the airport in Minneapolis and at the Metrodome I just don't get it. Looks like the same porcelain decor to me as any other bathrooms in the US.

    Is it the water?

    Yes, but ...

    Why the apparent incidence of sex with strangers in Minneapolis stalls?

    I know some animals get stuck together, but...

    They must have been pretty drunk.

    People don't realize that it's so cold, your piss freezes before it hits the toilet. And the water in the toilet is frozen also, so even if your piss was able to make contact, it would just bounce back up and splash all over you. Don't even get me started with trying to take a dump when your crap is rock hard and cuts up your innards on the way out. The only way to survive is to hold it in for four months until spring rolls back around... hence the toilets are the most private place in the whole city. The catch rate of people having sex in the bathroom is about 3 per 100,000 incidents

    It may get chilly in Minnesota alright, but I rather doubt that it gets quite as chilly as those two rides back to Iowa that night with their respective others.

    Maybe the score of the game had something to do with it?

    Iowa 55 - Minnesota 0

    That would be my guess. I'm more curious why it became newsworthy. Maybe because there was a crowd of onlookers instead of everyone trying to politely ignore it? I suspect that such incidents would be fairly common among amorous and very drunk couples.

    I've had sex in public before and I wasn't drunk.

    In front of a crowd of strangers? A lot of people have had sex in a public park, beach, or building, but it wasn't with an audience.

    :rofl: I'm surprised they aren't still sitting in jail waiting for someone else to bail them out.

    Well, I started having sex, and people saw us. Relocated and continued. It was night time. Not in full day light.

    In front of strangers, I would need to be drunk.
