18-year-old is selling her virginity online for $20,000
Carys Copestake, 18, has offered her virginity for the price of £10,000 to help her pay for university tuitions. The British 18 year old used a false name to advertise herself on a website popular with prostitutes, with her parents having no idea of the bizarre way of getting cash for university. The ad reads: "Virginity For Sale £10,000," she adds:
"Hey, I think the title says it all. I'm an 18-year-old virgin with student funds to pay and I'm looking to sell my first time right here. I'm brunette, 34C, green eyes, all in proportion and good looking."
The young woman, who still lives with her parents, is one of thousands of students who are struggling to afford the £20,000 fees which cover tuition and accommodation. » Full article here

Woman finds $20,000 in bank deposit tube
A woman who works as a makeup artist and deli clerk found $20,000 at a bank's drive-up depository, then calmly walked into the bank and turned over the cash. Linda Hatch said her mind raced in the seconds after she found the two $10,000 bundles in a plastic deposit tube.
Hatch said. "I was like, 'Oh, my gosh. What do I do?'" Hatch said she filed a police report in the days after turning over the cash and hasn't been told by the bank whether the rightful owner has ever surfaced. Hatch said she was "shaken for five hours" after the discovery. But she has no second thoughts about turning in the cash and laughed while recalling the scenario. "It's not enough money to move to Mexico," she said. » Article here

A 31-year-old Australian university student is being held in lieu of $2.35 million bail in North Carolina after flying there to pick up her 17-year-old World of Warcraft boyfriend and fly him back to with her, Pitt County Sheriff's officials said.

She faces more than two years in jail if found guilty. » Article here

'Transformers' isn't that great of a movie?
I'm worried... I WAS excited to see this movie, but I just read a really bad review in the NYtimes. Is this movie going to flop?
Boys and their toys are in full formation in “Transformers,” a movie of epically assaultive noise and nonsense. The result is part car commercial, part military recruitment ad, a bumper-to-bumper pileup of big cars, big guns and, as befits its recently weaned target demographic, big breasts.
Just as easy on the eyes, though for other reasons, are the two female leads, the genius hacker in throw-her-down heels (Rachael Taylor) and the grease-monkey bombshell (Megan Fox) who helps Sam rise to the manly occasion. These walking, talking dolls register as less human and believable than the Transformers, which may be why they were even allowed inside this boy’s club.
