Girls Bugged Teachers' Staff Room 227

A pair of enterprising Swedish schoolgirls ended up in court after they were caught bugging their teachers break room. The duo hoped they would hear discussions about upcoming tests and school work, allowing them to get better grades. It worked until one of them decided to brag about it on Facebook, and the authorities were called in. The girls were charged with trespassing and fined 2,000 kronor ($270) each in Stockholm District Court.

    Typically, I thought it was teachers bugging the Swedish "schoolgrils'" lock rooms or something. At least, that's what all those "feminist sexual exploration" films made it seem like...

    Why is it that so many people don't seem to understand the concept of "Things You Don't Discuss In Public" anymore? Do they not think that the world wide web is public? The whole point of Facebook was supposed to be getting in touch with people and communicating with them, yet the way many people carry on, it's like they don't realize the whole world is able to look and see a permanent record of what they're doing.

    The worst part is, this isn't even the stupidest braging I've ever seen done on facebook - one example I've seen was where one idiot was using lawsuits as a harrassment tool against someone they'd had a falling out with, and was constantly bragging on facebook about their next wonderful plan, and how "That idiot will never see this coming! There's no way they'll be ready for it!". Sadly, they had forgotten to un-friend the person they were suing, so their target received a steady stream of updates on what to expect next.

    Ya know..... the same way the case in Pennsylvania was dropped when the teachers were caught spying on the girls' bedrooms.


    Spying == okay when it's a government employee. Some people are more equal than others.
