In the annals of weird things captured by Google Street View, some random Japanese woman's underwear drying on a line would not rank high. But she's suing Google after she was shocked to discover her unmentionables were on the Internet.

The woman lives in Fukuoka, Japan and is suing Google for 600,000 (~$7,000) over the images. She told a court: "I was overwhelmed with anxiety that I might be the target of a sex crime. It caused me to lose my job and I had to change my residence." Apparently, the shock exacerbated an already-existing obsessive compulsive disorder to the point she couldn't work.

If she wins, she should probably use the money to buy some underwear she's not so embarrassed of.
