Woman, 104, Lies About Age
Somehow, you can give a virtual latte on Facebook, yet you can’t list your age as over 100.
Marguerite Joseph of Gross Pointe Shores, Mich. is 104 years old and has been on Facebook for more than two years–yet must list her age at 99. “Every time I tried to change the settings to the right year, Facebook always came back with an unknown error message and would send us right back to a year she wasn’t born in,” said her granddaughter, Gail Marlow, who helps her respond to messages and posts on the site.
Facebook, not wanting to deter older users, has now issued a statement: “We’ve recently discovered an issue whereby some Facebook users may be unable to enter a birthday before 1910. We are working on a fix for this and we apologize for the inconvenience.”
No word on whether Joseph plans to post a special status when she can list her actual age.
Mike Tyson Sues Live Nation
Mike Tyson has thrown a powerful punch to Live Nation Entertainment, accusing one of their advisers of embezzling $300,000 from him and his wife, Lakiha.
The sports icon claims he and his wife were going through tough times financially, but trusted Live Nation with their financial business. Tyson further alleges they received “false and misleading financial advice” according to recently released court documents. He also accuses one advisor, Brian Ourand, of stealing from his profits. Tyson is requesting unspecified damages, restitution, punitive damages and court costs. Hopefully that Tiger from The Hangover hasn’t suffered too much throughout all the drama.
