Saturday Morning Confusion!

imageDear Readers:

Confused about when and where to share nude photo’s of your girlfriend, wife, mother, brother or neighbour?
Well rest easy kids, people keep saying: “there ought to be a law,” and now there just might be!
There should be a law against distributing intimate photos without someone’s consent, says a new report commissioned after the suicide of a Nova Scotia teen.
Rehtaeh Parsons hanged herself in April and was taken off life-support three days later.
Her family alleges the 17-year-old was sexually assaulted by four boys and a digital photograph of the incident was passed around her school.

Ottawa and the provinces and territories released a report Friday that says the law as it stands doesn’t go far enough to protect victims of this type of online exploitation.
“There is a gap in the Criminal Code’s treatment of this conduct,” the report says.
“The working group recommends that a new criminal offence addressing the non-consensual distribution of intimate images be created.”
The new law would come with amendments that cover the seizure of items used in the crime, and restitution to compensate victims for any costs they bear to have photos taken off the Internet, the report adds.
It also recommends bringing the investigative powers of police into the digital age.
“However, any time police investigate crimes, many of which involve new technologies or crimes, they are mostly using investigative powers that are out of date and have been barely modernized since the advent of the Internet,” the report says.
“The investigation of offences committed via the Internet, or that involves electronic evidence, would especially benefit from the availability of modern investigative tools.”
Newly appointed Justice Minister Peter MacKay will now study the report.
“For my part, I will consider the report and its recommendations, which will help guide the way forward to ensuring our children are safe from online exploitation,” he said in a statement.

It is a mark of colossal arrogance that someone should come to our country and demand, through legal process, that we change historically established tradition associated with our citizenship procedures, simply to suit their whims.
Find another country.
I can’t imagine we would be losing anything significant for it and in fact may be saving the taxpayer expense and irritation that such personalities might create through future mischief.

SURREY, B.C. — A woman who disappeared from Surrey, B.C., more that 50 years ago has been found, but the fairy tale family reunion may never happen.
RCMP recently featured Lucy Johnson in their historic missing-persons file and Johnson’s daughter, Linda Evans, used that information to advertise the disappearance where her mother once lived in Yukon.
RCMP spokesman Curtis Harling said it wasn’t long before Evans heard from what turned out to be her half-sister.
“There was a woman who noticed the advertisement in the classified in one of the papers in the Yukon. Obviously there was a photo attached to it, and said ‘Hey that photo is my mother,”‘ he said laughing.
Harling said the woman was the daughter from Lucy’s new marriage and had no idea she had a half-sister or that her mother had been married before.
Johnson, who’s now 77 and living under a different name, disappeared in 1961 but her husband Marvin Johnson didn’t report her missing until 1965.

The four-year time lapse made police suspicious and Marvin Johnson became a suspect.
Harling said police did a lot of work on the file back then and even excavated the family’s property looking for a body.
Police have been in contact with Marvin Johnson’s family, he said.
image“They’d like to acknowledge that Marvin’s name is now cleared. He was identified as a person of interest at the time.”
Marvin died in the late 1990s, apparently never knowing what happened to his wife.

CADC125-719_2013_144907_highSAN DIEGO – Spider-Man himself made an appearance at Comic-Con, scaling nearby hotels to swoop into a panel in the San Diego Convention Center’s largest exhibition hall.
Andrew Garfield, who plays the web-slinging superhero in “The Amazing Spider-Man” and its forthcoming sequel, was nowhere in sight. The actor only joined the panel once Spidey left.
Garfield, along with Jamie Foxx, director Marc Webb and the film’s producers, offered convention-goers the first look Friday at footage from “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” which is set for release next year.
At 92, Sara Dappen certainly has earned her retirement years. But this nonagenarian can be found working at the Story City McDonald’s in Iowa, and there’s a good chance she’s the chain’s oldest employee anywhere in the world.
A story in the U.K. newspaper the Sun earlier in the month claimed a North Wales man held the title at 88. But at 92, Dappen has him beat.
Dear Readers:

keyboard-and-woman-Getty-Images-GalanteUp at the top of the page we joked about having nude pictures of your mom, this M.I.L.F. would probably fit the bill nicely!
Unfortunately, we don’t have any pictures of HER except this one!   —>

Everybody knows that Craigslist is the best place in the world to find random, possibly diseased sex partners and crappy furniture nobody wants.
Naturally, then, a Philadelphia woman who says she wants to find a special female to deflower her “extremely smart but socially awkward” 18-year-old son knew exactly where to turn: the “casual encounters” section of Philly’s Craigslist personals.
The young man is allegedly going to Harvard, you see, and his mother says she wants him to be sexually ready when he arrives in Cambridge. Because what kind of mother wouldn’t be worried sick about that?
“This is going to sound strange but my son is a senior in High School and I want to help him,” the concerned mother writes in the ad placed on July 16 12:49 p.m. Eastern time. The ad is titled “Sugar Baby for my Son – m4w – 18 (Philly).” It’s not clear what this kid is doing still in high school in the middle of July. He “has never had a girl friend,” she explains. She is “sure he’s a virgin.” He is — or was — also a member of the varsity cross country team at an undisclosed high school. He is “very handsome and extremely fit… There’s almost zero body fat on him.”

The helpful mother says she wants “to find a cute young girl to date him and turn him from high school nerd to cool college kid.”
Mom’s plan is simple: “I’ll buy 4 tickets to some great concert coming up and give two to my son and 2 to you,” she schemes. “Ask him to take you somewhere after and ditch your friends. Then you seduce him and take his virginity. Keep dating him (and showing him different sex positions) til he goes to college and then let him go gently so he’ll have the confidence to date other girls once he’s there.”

The sands of time might soon bury the sands of Tatooine.
Sand dunes blowing over the Tunisian desert are poised to cover a famous “Star Wars” film set that served as the backdrop for numerous scenes in “The Phantom Menace.”
More than a dozen buildings, real and mocked up, still stand on the site of the fictional Mos Espa, where the young Anakin Skywalker grew up. But a team of scientists reports that mounds of wind-swept sand have made contact with some of the Mos Espa buildings, threatening to damage a popular geek landmark and tourist destination.
For the past several years, the scientists have used the fictional dwellings as a marker for measuring the migration of giant wind-blown, crescent-shaped sand ridges known as barchans, which are produced by wind moving predominantly from one direction. They visited the site located in the Tunisian region of Oung el Jemel in 2009, and noted that sands had already overcome part of a nearby set used in “Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.”

The roof on another set nearby collapsed under the weight of sand when the building was overrun circa 2005. The photo shows what damage could hit the Mos Espa site.

The U.S. and Tunisian researchers — Ralph D. Lorenz, Nabil Gasmi, Jani Radebaugh, Jason W. Barnes, and Gian G. Ori — have continued to track the area via Google Earth satellite images, and their paper on the topic (PDF), titled “Dunes on Planet Tatooine: Observation of Barchan Migration at the Star Wars film set in Tunisia,” was accepted last month for publication in the journal Geomorphology.
The Mos Espa movie set, located on a clay-rich pan in an isolated field of barchanoid dunes, includes such famed spots as Watto’s shop and the Skywalker slave quarters. The front edge of a 21-foot barchan, moving at a barchan-typical distance of around 50 feet a year, appears to be encroaching on the alley adjoining Anakin’s homestead.
