Facebook Photos Cause $505,000 Damage to Navy Copters

A new press/blogosphere sport: blame Facebook (minimally with misleading headlines, as in this instance) for all the stupid things people do and claim they did in some way related to Facebook.  Check the link below, in any case, for a video of a stunt that could have easily earned a Darwin Award

A Navy investigation into $505,000 of damages to two helicopters found that the pilots had dipped into Lake Tahoe while taking photos for their Facebook page.

Two unidentified Navy pilots were on the return leg of a cross-country tour on September 13 when they attempted to maneuver their helicopters to hover a few feet above the water, according to the investigation.
