OK, note to self, when planning a daring children rescue attempt in Lebanon, make sure the father (who allegedly refuses to return them to Australia) doesn’t have access to the email account being used to arrange the kidnapping. Just saying 60 Minutes, just saying. The father, on reading the details of the attempt to snatch back his kids , notified authorities. Another fine mess. Now the distraught mother of the kids, Tara Brown (the presenter), the 60 Minutes crew and the professional kidnappers all face the wrath of the Lebanese government. Meanwhile, the children are safely back with the American born Lebanese father who is laying charges against the lot of them. The price for trying to cover this story ….. 20 years .

When it comes to modern technology the Taliban pretty much suck. Qari Yousuf Ahmedi, a spokesman for the terrorist group, was preparing a routine press release when instead of clicking “bcc” he clicked “cc” sending all the hidden names and email addresses to everyone on the list (including journalists and warlords).
As a final parting gesture a German public servant sent an email to all his colleagues boasting that he earned $917,000 without so much as “lifting a finger”. He then went on to say “Since 1998, I was present but not really there. So I’m going to be well prepared for retirement – Adieu.” Evidently, there wasn’t enough work for him to do as he passed it all on to his colleagues. His job is now redundant and the mayor is really pissed!!
Oh my, here’s something that could make the world spin off its axis. Seems Wikileaks has an email suggesting Osama Bin Laden wasn’t buried at sea after all but flown to Dover on a CIA lane before sent to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Bethesda in Maryland. Hmm? Oh, wait just one cotton picking minute here, the source is “one high-ranking individual at the private, Texas-based, security mega-firm Stratfor”. What the hell would he know? Anywho he’s still dead, right?
Introducing the dumbass bank robber of the week. Instead of just being happy with the money he stole, the German robber decided to taunt the police and a few newspapers with emails correcting them on erroneous descriptions of himself. Hmm, would have worked had police not traced his friggin email address. Loser.
When the student union at Cambridge University’s Newnham college aren’t happy, everybody knows about it. The 400 all female undergrads have received e-mails from the union asking them to keep the noise during sex down to a bare minimum. Complaints people, complaints. Evidently the student union had received some 30 complaints about late night hanky panky in the residence halls. Oooh ahh. The email reminds students that the walls are thin and the sound can funnel. Hmm but no word on whether men are involved!
Psst I bet I know which ones were complaining!!!!
