In case you've been living under a rock...

Hey, all you wealthy celebrities with every tech gadget available?  Yes, you... um, there was this thing created some time back in the late 80's, early 90's called the Internet.  You may have heard of this.

One of the many wonders of the internet is that people can talk to other people electronically and even send pictures.  Yes, yes, I know, it's incredible.  But did you also know that you can not only send pictures, not just to your friends, but also to EVERYONE on the World Wide Web??


This is some serious stuff, right!  

So when you want to take naked pictures of yourself - whether you are married or dating, do the whole freakin world a favor and DON'T photograph it!  I mean, how many times does this have to happen before you people catch on?  And the outrage?  Really?  If you are stupid enough to take provocative pictures of yourself and then send it electronically to someone else, then you deserve to have the whole flippin world see your stupidity.

Between Facebook, Twitter and just the internet in general, NO ONE should be doing this.  And then you know what happens??  Impressionable little teenagers start doing the same thing and then wonder why they can no longer show their face at school...or why they get suspended.  

What is this world coming to where this is happening with such frequency and no one is seeing that it is a bad idea???

I guess when you have that deadly mix of photo/internet/email combo on your phones, people are gonna do stupid stuff. But to do this when you are in a position of authority or in the public eye??? Really? Maybe all this stuff was going on before but they just didn't get caught like they do now. Either way, I'm with you--it's ridiculous.

Politicians have been doing this sort of thing forever, I remember reading that several of the founding fathers were known womanizers. It's just more out in the open now with communication technology the way it is. I wonder if politicians and celebrities are really more likely to get up to this stuff though, or is it just that we're more likely to hear about it because they're famous?
