Scenes you may have missed: Porn on a train station Jumbotron

Sometimes, just one click can take you from safety to embarrassment. This seems to have happened for one IT worker in China, who displayed a porn movie to travelers. For 10 minutes.

When you get to the middle of a holiday weekend, you might turn to those closest to you and mutter: "Oh, I forgot to tell you about..."

Here's one event that somehow scarred my mind so much that I can talk about it only now.

Yuan Mou, a Chinese IT worker, was reportedly asked to perform routine maintenance on a vast LED screen near the Jilin railway station.

It seems he may have offered a performance that didn't quite maintain the standards of public decency.

For, as the South China Morning Post reveals it, passersby were confronted by an impromptu movie screening that they couldn't just pass by.

It was called "Xin Jin Ping Mei." This interesting and tasteful work is based on the story of "The Plum in the Golden Vase."

The slight problem in broadcasting it publicly is that this particular version plumbs the area known to many as pornography. You see, it also goes by the name of "Sex and Chopsticks."

Sensitive flowers were therefore outraged and wanted to know how this could have happen. The police came for Yuan Mou.

He reportedly explained that he was enjoying some downtime and thought that his laptop was disconnected from the Jumbotron. He was living in the building from which the screen hung, while he performed his required tasks.

Those of an acute disposition might find themselves remembering the Belgian professor at a Dutch university who was left in a similar quandary .

In his case, he was enjoying a little respite after a lecture. He thought he'd disconnected his laptop from the classroom projector. Sadly, his predilection for PornHub was exposed to a wider audience.

In Yuan Mou's case, the investigation is reportedly continuing.

They can hardly charge him with indecent exposure, can they?
