This one apparently true. You can make up your own moral for the story.

Pastor says car salesman swiped wife’s nude photos from phone, sent it to swinger’s site

Tim Gautreaux, 29, is a pastor at Hope Fellowship in Frisco. His wife, Claire, works in retail management.
The couple went to Texas Toyota of Grapevine in January 2015.
Tim Gautreaux had his pre-approved financing document saved on an application on his phone. The salesman who was helping them asked to borrow Tim Gautreaux's phone so he could show the information to his manager.
He returned the phone a few minutes later and directed the couple to meet the dealership's finance manager, who asked for their pre-approved financing document and a pay stub.
That's when Tim Gautreaux sensed something was amiss. When he tried to pull up a screenshot of his pay stub from the "Photos" app on his phone, he saw that a year-old photo of his wife had been pulled up on the app.
Later, he learned that photos of his wife getting in and out of their bathtub — from what they described as a private moment — had been sent to an email address that appeared to be linked to a swinger's website and a Garland couple, the lawsuit says.
The emails had been deleted from Tim Gautreaux's phone by the time he got it back, but were saved on a different app that backs up his emails.
"This private moment that was intended to remind us of our happiness together was ripped away and replaced with fear and uncertainty," he said in a prepared statement Thursday.
Grapevine police said the dealership's owner told them Thomas had the phone around the time the emails were sent. The police officer investigating the dealership incident found a profile on the swinger's site that appeared to belong to Thomas, police said.
Thomas was arrested in November 2015 on the security breach charge. He was released after posting bond. His next court hearing is scheduled for Dec. 29.
He could not be reached for comment on Thursday.
Tim and Claire Gautreaux have been married for eight years and are expecting their first child. They have famed lawyer Gloria Allred on their side. She joined them at Thursday's news conference.

I can see it. "Look Honey, you have to go. You're shortening my lifespan."

Europe’s Oldest Woman Says Being Single Helped Her Live to 115

Emma Morano, Europe’s oldest woman, says eating raw eggs and staying single has kept her alive for over 115 years.
Morano told the New York Times that she’s been single since 1938, when her first and only marriage ended after the death of her infant child. (Divorce only became legal in Italy in 1970.) She’s had many suitors since but has rebuffed them all, she says, and attributes her longevity to staying single most of her life.

Do not know if this is weird but certainly peculiar.

Forty-one die in Siberia after drinking bath oil for alcoholic kicks

At least 41 residents of the Siberian city of Irkutsk have died after drinking scented bath oil in a desperate search for an alcoholic high in one of the deadliest cases of its kind in years, Russian investigators said on Monday.
Use of counterfeit or surrogate alcohol is rife in Russia's regions, where two years of economic pain have pushed more people below the poverty line. Russian media reported that the victims were poor residents of Irkutsk, a hard scrabble city around 2,600 miles (4,000 km) east of Moscow.
The case underlines how hard up a large swath of the population is despite Moscow's growing profile and clout on the global stage.
"It is a terrible tragedy," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters. "This type of problem is well known and the president has been informed. Measures must be taken."

You know you always wondered:

Just How Much Pee Is In That Pool?

You know that sharp odor of chlorine from the swimming pool you can recall from earliest childhood? It turns out it's not just chlorine, but a potent brew of chemicals that form when chlorine meets sweat, body oils, and urine.
But up until now, just how much urine has been difficult to measure, says chemist Xing-Fang Li of the University of Alberta. Li and her colleagues report they can now tell roughly how much pee is in a pool by measuring the artificial sweeteners carried in most people's urine. Certain sweeteners can be a good proxy for pee, she says, because they're designed to "go right through you" and don't break down readily in pool water.
The scientists calculated that one 220,000-gallon, commercial-size swimming pool contained almost 20 gallons of urine. In a residential pool (20-by-40-foot, five-feet deep), that would translate to about two gallons of pee.

Texas lawmaker files bill that would penalize men for masturbating

A Democratic lawmaker has filed a bill that would, among many provisions, create a $100 fine for men who masturbate and ejaculate outside of a woman’s vagina.
The bill, called “A Man’s Right to Know,” was filed Friday, the filing deadline for the legislative session, and appears to satirize current and proposed laws and regulations that have been criticized for restricting women’s access to abortions and health care choices.
The bill’s author state Rep. Jessica Farrar, of Houston, who has been outspoken against restrictive abortion laws, said on Twitter Saturday that the measure “mirrors real TX laws and health care restrictions faced by TX women every #txlege session.”

What key has legs but can’t open doors?

A turkey.

Washington County sheriff's deputies have a new favorite riddle: What key has legs but can’t open doors?
A turkey.
On Sunday afternoon, residents of a home in the Town of West Bend heard a "commotion" from inside an upstairs bedroom.
They cracked open the door and were startled to see a turkey on the bed.
The homeowners called sheriff's deputies, who arrived five minutes later to find the turkey "destroying" the bedroom, according to a popular post on the department's Facebook page.
The turkey had broken through a second-story window. Deputies had a "plan to safely take the bird into custody without knocking the stuffing out of it," wrapped the bird in a blanket and took it outside.
"Although the deputies suspected fowl play, the turkey was released from custody with no charges," officials joked in the Facebook post.

UNLUCKY THIEF CAUGHT BECAUSE GETAWAY CAR WAS REPOSSESSED

A man in Zion, Illinois, was observed putting electronics into a shopping cart at Walmart and leaving without paying for them. When confronted by store employees, he fled without the merchandise. Police later arrested 25-year-old Che Hearn as he was walking down the road.

When asked why he was walking, he responded that his car had been repossessed while he was at the Wal-Mart, police said.

Investigators determined that the repossession company had followed Hearn to Wal-Mart, police said. The car was towed away when he entered the store, giving Hearn the only option of fleeing the scene on foot, police said.

Plane accidentally empties toilet tank over cruise ship, 23 injured

A Boeing 777 airplane belonging to the Taiwanese airline EVA Air, dumped human excreta midair while traveling from Japan to Hawaii.
Unfortunately, the content of the toilet tank was jettisoned into the sky while the plane was flying over the cruise liner Lady of the Pacific, which was hit by “large chunks of blue ice”.
Hundreds of passengers were standing on the top deck at the time, and many were hit by ice projectiles weighing up to 10 lbs.

Spam-loving couple get married at canned meat museum

A Spam-mad couple from Liverpool have made luncheon meat history as the first people to get hitched at the Spam Museum in Austin, Minnesota.
Barmy Mark Benson, 42, who in 2015 changed his middle name by deed poll to ''I Love Spam'' has tied the knot to Anne Mousley, 33, who'll now be legally known as Anne I Love Spam Benson.
The bizarre, one-of-a-kind ceremony was presided over by Spam's senior brand manager and ''official Spaminister'' Jaynee Sherman.
The ceremony was watched by a crowd of 50 bemused onlookers, including Spam-loving locals, Hormel Foods staff and a group of passing Mormon missionaries, along with nearly 12,000 viewers on Facebook Live.
Dressed in a suit and custom-made Spam dickie bow, Benson beamed as Mousley walked down the makeshift aisle in the museum foyer, clutching a flower bouquet coloured like a tin of Spam, with their daughters Milly, 5, and Evie, 4, in tow.

After reading their vows, exchanging rings and signing the marriage certificate, the newlywed couple dined on a meaty feast of ''Spamatisers'' including doughnuts, cheesy pastry bites and sushi, all of which contained their beloved canned meat.
"I couldn't have ever thought this would happen," said Benson, who eats three or four cans of Spam each week, and cites Spam fritters as his favourite dinner.
"I mean, to be married here, in a special place, means a lot to me. Hormel have been so good, and the way they sprung it on me in February was like a dream come true."
