Sweden is such a lovely, law abiding place. People rarely make false allegations, and typically respect their fellow person just as they want to be respected. So I was surprised reading in a Swedish online publication about two Stockholm schoolgirls who transgressed against their educators in a disturbingly technological manner.

These two schoolgirls wanted to know what was going on in the teachers’ staff room during a grading conference. Fortune temporarily smiled upon them as they happened to find a key to that very staff room. However, their next steps were slightly smart and mostly “stupid” at the same time. They went to a local tech store and bought some bugging equipment. Locating their inner Russian spy, they sneaked into the staff room and planted the bugs. They were prepared to listen in to the teachers and perhaps get some vital tips that might improve their academic standing.

I have no knowledge of how high their standing was at that very moment. But it probably fell, when one of the girls was reportedly so excited by such a clever move that she boasted about it on Facebook.

You know how it ends when you reveal your secrets on Facebook! You can be taken to court. And so it happened with these two schoolgirls who were reported for trespassing, “arbitrary conduct” and fined 2000 kronor (approx. $270) each. I wonder if they’ll get good grades though for listening to their teachers?

Casual Observer says:

Not to be rude, but what does this have to do with "buying and selling almost anything"? It seems to me that if you want a place to discuss (or, rant) about your feelings, opinions, observations, or questions, you should have a personal blog. Keep it off your company's webpage.
