Nice-Woman's tattooed sexy torso goes viral

EDMONTON - Crysta Hammond is proud of her new giant tattoo. She endured 14 hours of pain to get the image of three fairies hugging each other etched permanently on the side of her torso, and came up with the design herself about 14 years ago.
But she never planned to reveal it -- and the side of her naked body -- to the online world. Moments after getting her new piece of art at FX Inc. in West Edmonton Mall, Hammond, a 32-year-old marketing coordinator for global trade shows, had her daughter snap a photo of the tattoo on her naked body. And so did the tattoo artist, who Hammond said claimed he would only use it for his personal portfolio. According to Hammond, the artist later friended her on Facebook, where he posted and tagged her in the photo he had taken with her head cropped out of the image. The identity of the naked woman had been revealed.
Hammond wasn't aware the nude image had been posted publicly until she received a call from her banker. It had been there for two days before it was removed at Hammond's request, but the damage had already been done. "I was absolutely mortified when this thing went on Facebook," said Hammond, who is connected to previous customers, co-workers, her boss and many other professionals on the popular social networking site. "It was a complete breach of my privacy. It was a private tattoo that isn't private anymore." The tattoo artist apologized to Hammond about posting the picture, writing to her: "I didn't mean any harm."
George, who didn't want to use his last name, owns the tattoo shop where the artist works and has never encountered such a problem in his 13 years of business. He said all customers sign a waiver that releases the rights to use pictures taken of their tattoos in any form they please. Hammond was no exception, said George, who offered his apologies, but warned others to read the fine print before they initial anything.

How-Man nabbed at airport with snakes in his pants


Never mind ants in your pants, what about snakes and tortoises? That's what authorities at Miami's international airport said they found inside the trousers of a passenger as he tried to board a flight for Brazil. The U.S. Transportation Security Administration said the man had seven exotic snakes and three tortoises wrapped in nylon bags that had been stuffed into his pants.
He was discovered as he went through a body scanner at one of the airport's security checkpoints on Thursday and arrested by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials for violating animal trafficking laws. Authorities declined to identify the man or offer any explanation for his botched attempt at reptile smuggling.

Wow-Man in plane spots his home being burglarized

BAY, Ark. — An Arkansas man who wanted to capture aerial photos of his home during his first plane ride instead helped catch two men burglarizing it. Steven Lynn said he could see the two taking items from his house."I looked down, and sure enough, there was a truck hooked onto a trailer, and guys were loading stuff up," Lynn told The Jonesboro Sun. "It didn't seem to faze them that we were buzzing over in an airplane; we got down pretty low."
Lynn called an uncle who lives nearby and 911. Craighead County Sheriff's deputy Phillip Wheaton said the two men unloaded the trailer and left the scene when the uncle arrived. But the pilot and Lynn's uncle followed them until they were stopped near Bay by Wheaton and two other officers.

Fake-Wooden iPad 2 sold for £110 to woman in McDonald's car park

A US woman was sold a fake wooden iPad in a McDonald's car park
Ms McDowell was approached by two men in a McDonald's car park in Spartanburg, South Carolina, who claimed to have bought the cutting-edge Apple tablets at a knock-down price.

Idea-'Sex tax meters' introduced for German prostitutes


BERLIN - Prostitutes in the German city of Bonn must carry a ticket purchased from a new parking meter-like machine while working the streets or face hefty fines from tax authorities in a scheme launched on Monday night. In Germany, ladies of the night pay income tax — the level of which varies from region to region — but compliance is difficult to enforce with women seeking business on the street. Germany’s first “sex tax meters,” from which prostitutes can purchase a ticket for 6 euros ($8.72) per night, will ensure the tax system is fairly implemented, a city spokeswoman said. “Inspectors will monitor compliance — not every evening but frequently,” the spokeswoman told Reuters. If caught without a valid ticket, offenders will first be reprimanded, and then faces fines and later even a ban. About 200 prostitutes work in Bonn. Due to protests from residents, city officials have limited the areas of operation to specific quarters. But critics say this has made it easier for prostitutes to ply their trade. The city has erected what officials call “consummation areas,” wooden parking garages where customers driving cars can retreat to with prostitutes.

Smart-Man dines, dashes, and then robs to pay the bill: Cops

When restaurant staff insisted a North Vancouver man pay for his meal, he held up a nearby gas station to cover the bill, RCMP said.Cory Henderson, 21, grabbed a late-night meal at Browns Social House in North Vancouver on Friday night, then skipped out on the $38 bill, according to police."When approached by staff for his actions he replied by telling them to call the police and that he would be at the Esso gas station next door," RCMP said in police press release.Moments later, cops received an alarm that the gas station was being held up. "The same male allegedly held a screwdriver to the employee's neck and robbed the gas station of an undisclosed amount of money. The suspect then returned to Browns restaurant and paid the unpaid bill with the just-stolen money," cops said in the release.Henderson now stands charged with robbery, fraudulently obtaining good, beverage and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose. "Fortunately no one was injured in this most unusual robbery," said Cpl. Richard De Jong, "It is not every day a criminal will tell a victim what his next move will be and then go and just do it."

How-Juror caught trying to 'friend' female defendant

A 22-year-old male juror pleaded guilty to trying to 'friend' the female defendant in his case, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Instead of accepting his advances, the woman told her lawyer, who told the judge, who pounded the gavel.
It sounds like a case of eyes locking across a crowded courtroom, at least from the point of view of the juror. After the trial — involving a Tarrant County, Texas car wreck — recessed one day, he tried to link up with the defendant on Facebook. When she rebuffed his request, he suggested it was a case of mistaken identity, but that didn't hold water.According to the article, not only does Texas have jury instructions banning jurors from discussing trials on social media, this juror was given a copy of those instructions.
