    Why did the police seize the flash drive? I'm assuming the image was of an adult woman?

    Exposing people under 18 to it is against the law I believe.

    Maybe it was hot porn, and they wanted to know how to get more?

    LOL this reminds me tangentially, that we have a relatively famous researcher in the area of anxiety, who pioneered and works with a set of standardized images that are intended to evoke different basic emotions at different intensities. He gave a presentation during our interview weekend for prospective new students, and he had some collage slides of the pictures from this set, which include a fair number of nude models. In itself, that's fine, but the amusing thing is that this set was created and heavily standardized over the past ~20 years, and so the pictures are sort of stuck in it, and sometimes become dated. All I have to say is that standards for hair down there have changed rather a lot in twenty years!!! :eek:

    I'm trying to figure out how the pictures could have displayed automatically when the flash drive was plugged it.

    If I remember right, XP gives you an option to auto run a flash drive when it detects media. You can have music start playing automatically, slideshows start, etc. I don't know if the setting is stored on the computer or the flash drive, but if the latter, that is an option (but then it would have loaded automatically when he loaded his presentation - but I don't have a solution for that).

    I have a friend who this happened to in an elementary class. Her windows pc had several spyware/virus programs that pulled up adult websites and she couldn't get it shut down. She almost got fired.

    Yet another reason to go with a Mac

    Don't forget the case about the substitute teacher that was convicted.

    And why was Highway Patrol involved?
    They should go easy on the guy, its not like this happened in the airport bathroom.:p

    It's sad that this is a news item. Growing up, I never imagined that naked women would someday constitute a punishable crime. A police investigation and seizing of hardware for an accidental picture of a naked woman seems, politely, retarded.

    Yes because I'm sure a high school boy has never seen a picture of a naked lady before.:rolleyes:

    A person giving a job talk for a faculty position at the university I was a post-doc had this happen to him, in front of a large audience. No job for him.

    It's like the song I'm a bill on capital hill.
    Maybe he was showing how a bill becomes law and different ways one can encourage a bill to get introduced?:rolleyes:

    I never saw a naked woman until I got married and saw my wife for the first time on my wedding night. We only have "grown up time" to make babies, never for pleasure, and we always go to confessional straight after.

    I SEA what you did there! :D

    What's so not funny about this quote is that there are actually some people out there somewhere who actually live like that.

    That's my favorite part of the whole story.

    Brilliant. I'm glad they called in the school's technology director to determine if there was any porn on the thumb drive 'cause anyone else wouldn't have been qualified to do a job like that...

    Oh big deal....a topless women?


    Most of the kids have seen a picture, video or the real thing at some point!

    Heck some of the people in the class were women(physically)


    Of course you try to avoid doing this, but hardly a big deal.
