1.) Insult someone on Facebook, and you could be heading to jail. Legislators in the Caribbean nation of Grenada have approved a bill that makes it a crime to offend people through sites such as Facebook and Twitter. According to the bill, the first of its kind in the Caribbean, complaints about offensive comments would be filed with police. A judge would then decide if the message was offensive. Those found guilty could be fined up to $37,000 or face three years in prison. The measure was part of a broader electronic crimes bill, which also makes it a crime to distribute child pornography, imposing fines of up to $111,000 and a maximum prison sentence of 20 years.

More than a third of respondents said they've worked from the beach, while 31% claimed they did other business while on the commode. However, 64% of employees in this poll said that checking work email while on vacation actually helps them ease back into work after the holiday is over.
