    Sweden - Porn addict crashes train network

    Swedish rail worker crashes train network with porn addiction


    A SWEDISH rail worker was slammed by his bosses for crippling a train network by looking at porn.

    Investigators found that there were so many viruses infecting the rail network's computers in Gavle, 160km north of Stockholm, that they were incapable of running trains safely, The Sun reports today.

    His outraged bosses gave the signalman an official warning, saying that thousands of passengers and hundreds of cargo trains were put at risk by his porn addiction.

    A report into the scandal also said the 52-year-old worker (whose name was not released) regularly missed his shifts at the network controls because he was too tired to work after being up all night ogling saucy internet images.


    One frustrated driver reported that the man slept soundly at his post while he awaited permission for his train to enter the station.

    But union bosses said the official warning was "too harsh".

    "A letter would have been more appropriate," one union official said.

    They need to do what other companies stuck with overbearing unions do, promote him to a position where he can really mess things up.

    This guy need to go to Patters to blow off some steam.

    Gavle is town in the middle of nowhere, the only thing they have there is world record speed in their broadband Internet.
    They transferred a DVD movie from some uni in US to the Uni in Gavle before, in like 15 seconds. Guess that's snail speed today, on continent-continent transfer.

    They don't seem to have an issue with his porn habit, only with the viruses. Give him a Mac and a box of tissues, problem solved.
