Nude Photos on Your Phone - Never a Good Idea
Texas pastor Tim Gautreaux and his wife Claire got far more than they bargained for when they went shopping for a new car. According to a lawsuit seeking more than $1 million in damages that the couple filed against Texas Toyota of Grapevine and Toyota Motor North America, Tim (age 29), handed over his phone to the salesman because he had his application for pre-approved financing saved on an app. The salesman gave the phone to his manager, 44-year-old Matthew Luke Thomas -- and Thomas allegedly stole nude photos of Claire (age 27), off the phone! The phone was out of sight for just five minutes. When Tim got his phone back, he opened it to see a year-old photograph of Claire "in a compromising stage of undress," per the lawsuit. He then opened an app that saves deleted emails, and saw that two emails, which included photos of his wife getting in and out of the bath, had been sent to a swingers' website. Their lawyer said, "These actions have caused the Gautreauxs to suffer humiliation and mental anguish, particularly because they do not know who has seen these photographs or may see them in the future." Thomas has been criminally charged with misdemeanor computer security breach.
Oh, Well Hello to You Too!
You probably haven't heard of Simone Gutsche, but she's an aspiring German actress and model and was spending some vacation time at Cocoa Beach in Cape Canaveral. At one point she decided to check out the ocean and waded out about waist deep. She said, "There was nobody in the water, not many people were around. I found the emptiness beautiful." And the fact that other people started running onto the beach didn't seem to alarm her. Then, when people started waiving frantically at her, she thought they were just being friendly so she waived back - because she didn't see the 16-foot tiger shark with his large fin sticking out of the water swimming directly behind her! She did get out of the water safely and didn't really believe the story until someone showed her a picture with the large shark clearly in view behind her. Tiger sharks are a common occurrence in the waters at Cape Canaveral and are considered highly dangerous to humans. Simone said after seeing the picture she became terrified and won't be going in the water again.
