Are any of our European counterparts laughing in amusement over our American prudishness?

 

I'm prude too, but my country definitely is it. We have this new reality show thing called Adam and Eve and it's some kind of dating thing and both of them are naked all the time and everything is shown on tv in it's full glory. It's also very normal to swear on tv. Words like fuck will never be censored.

Even during the day? Here in the UK we have the watershed where certain language and images cannot be portrayed on tv before 9pm - and in some cases afterwards as well. Folk can contact Ofcom if they feel offended by something that is broadcast or a violation of the rules has taken place and tv companies must abide by the The Ofcom Broadcasting Code. Normally companies get warnings and/or fined but occasionally a channel is closed down (very rare but it does happen).

An excerpt from the code (Section One:  Protecting The Under-Eighteens)

Meaning of "the watershed":
The watershed only applies to television. The watershed is at 2100. Material unsuitable for children should not, in general, be shown before 2100 or after 0530.

On premium subscription film services which are not protected as set out in Rule 1.24, the watershed is at 2000. There is no watershed on premium subscription film services or pay per view services which are protected as set out in Rules 1.24 and 1.25 respectively.

1.5 Radio broadcasters must have particular regard to times when children are particularly likely to be listening.

Meaning of "when children are particularly likely to be listening":
This phrase particularly refers to the school run and breakfast time, but might include other times.

1.6 The transition to more adult material must not be unduly abrupt at the watershed (in the case of television) or after the time when children are particularly likely to be listening (in the case of radio). For television, the strongest material should appear later in the schedule.

1.7 For television programmes broadcast before the watershed, or for radio programmes broadcast when children are particularly likely to be listening, clear information about content that may distress some children should be given, if appropriate, to the audience (taking into account the context).

I have no idea what Jersey Shore is? 

Began reading its wiki entry. Sounds terrible. Lost interest.

Its UK equivalent is supposedly The Only Way Is Essex, never seen that either. Don't even know when its shown.

Maybe other people knew this already but I found this tidbit in a magazine article (by a fellow librarian, @Ahhh Girl) about famous quotations that were first said by someone else:

"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."

John Lennon used this lyric in "Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy)." But Reader's Digest in 1957 quoted Allen Saunders, creator of the comic strip Mary Worth, as saying, "Life is what happens to us while we are making other plans."

Just heard that the Kinks 'Waterloo Sunset' was going to be called 'Liverpool Sunset' but was changed due to songs such as 'Penny Lane' and 'Strawberry Fields' due to their Liverpool origins.

Was from a 1967 episode of 'Where It's At' so if since proved incorrect then

Sigourney Weaver was the '64 Hollywood Bowl concert. From Beatles News:

On Wednesday, Sigourney Weaver appeared on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. They talked about breaking news of a possible new Alien movie, and Weaver remembered seeing the Beatles live at the Hollywood Bowl in 1964 when she was 12 years old, and how actual footage of her at the concert was found.
