Abdrücken verboten

With our brothers across the pond, perhaps I can get a little understanding, about the need for the above phrase. Is this something that happens frequently in public? I was just brushing up on some German, when the above phrase came into view. My thought is, wow!!!!!!!!!

That is what I thought. It is not something typical. But here is where I saw it: http://dict.leo.org/ende?lp=ende&lan...ing+&relink=on

according to this website, it means, "no humping."

How Ya been Blu sorry to jump in on this thread but I believe it is a railroad term and Here's a Link.

http://web.utanet.at/smiderkr/asr/ensigave.html

The Link is a English translation of a German Signal book.

Never mind Vector6 beat me to it:chair:

I am doing well, Odhinn........thanx for asking. I love the world wide ability we have, to understand phrases. I mean you look at a saying, that says, "no humping", or "slow humping" and you have to wonder what is going on. First thing that comes to mind, is wow, these Germans have a problem of showing affection in public. This is just too cool......it just boils down to railroad terminology. Who would have ever guessed. Thanks all, for clearing this up for me. I really mean it. Thanks.

I always got a kick out of "Ausfahrt" myself.... All roads lead to "ausfahrt" in Germany.... It means exit.

If you think Germans are shy about their personal activities, you need to go to the Englisch Garten in Munich.... a sunbathers paradise right in the middle of the city.

My bad....I neglected to mention that part.

Come to think of it, they drop trow just about anyplace over there in the summer. Totally different attitude towards nudity in Europe. America needs to relax a little... I guess the 60's are over.
