Wow, I'm posting lots of entries right now . . . just read this over on Arstechnica. To summarize, there's this video of a teen who does some playing around with a broomstick like it's a lightsaber, and apparently he had to get some pscychiatric care for the embarassment he suffered. His parents are suing the other four teens who leaked the digital video. Crazy stuff. The poster over on Arstechnica does mention that this really is no different than standard teen behavior (embarassing others). The big difference though is that it wasn't just in front of the kids at school, this video has been seen worldwide, due to the Internet . . . amazing how it has changed things . . .
