You swine! German nudist chases wild boar that stole laptop

The photographer who captured the drama said the unidentified nudist was happy for her to share the images, which show him in bare-bottomed pursuit of the boar and her two piglets while fellow bathers look on in amusement. “Nature strikes back,” wrote Adele Landauer, a personal coach, on Facebook. “I showed the man the photos, he laughed heartily and gave me permission to make them public.” The man was sunbathing naked at the Teufelssee in west Berlin, a popular and perfectly legal practice in the German capital as part of what is known as FKK, or Freikörperkultur (free body culture). The wild boar, sightings of which have become increasingly common, had apparently spotted a pizza being eaten by other bathers.

“Because the bag contained his laptop, he gave it his all, even though he was in his birthday suit,” explained Landauer.

B2 level reading: describing places

How many times had she been dragged up it as a child by the wrist, whining and snivelling, always wishing she were somewhere else? Now she had no desire to be anywhere but here. This bustling traffic, these fuming buses, these chipped paving stones and boarded-up shop fronts, they were hers. Here, she would grow from defiant teenager to independent woman. When she was an old woman, she would gaze out over the lawns and say ‘Ah, Knox Road, that’s where I really came into my own’.

‘We lived in an area known as the slums’: life in 1960s Manchester

I’m the girl lying on the ground. The two girls in the light blue dresses are my sisters Kate and Mary, who are twins; my oldest sister Sarah is having her hair combed by her friend Marie. We were generally known as the redheaded Murray sisters. My mum is wearing a flowery dress, and talking to our neighbour, Mrs Bowers. I think it must have been a Sunday, because we’ve all got our nice dresses on. We lived in an area of Manchester known as the slums, but we weren’t really aware of that as children. Every 5 November, we’d have a bonfire; we’d spend months beforehand collecting every bit of wood we could salvage from the houses, or taking bits out of abandoned cars. All the houses in our street backed on to the area in this picture, which we called the croft. We found out about this photo in 1989, when Shirley Baker had a book of her photographs published. We’ve stayed close, my sisters and I. That’s why it’s lovely to have this picture. Steve Jobs vs Bill Gates. Epic Rap Battles of History Season 2.
