I love it when we're in the news.[/sarcasm]

Usually it's a size comparison - "The iceberg is larger than...", but every once in a while some nice mud gets dredged up to show the world.

What is it with people screenshotting their tabs?

During the weekend it was tentacle Pr0n and now this guy?



It's like these people don't understand the basic level of subterfuge required.

Ever since Chrome came out with incognito mode, there is no reason to be having pron on the same set of browser tabs as real work.

You don't need incognito mode, you just open separate windows, one for work and one for NSFW.

To be fair, if you read the story this guy didn't take the screen shot himself. He was using a printout of a Wikipedia article (printed out by his friend, who he'd asked to research something for him) and an image in the article had these tabs open. It's not clear from the story exactly what the article was about...

Even if the "friend" is a euphemism for himself, it's not as embarrassing as if he'd taken a screen shot of his own browser history. There's no excu^C^V pulsating member into her ^Z^Z^Zse for that sort of mistake.
