    Shirt at conservative website suspiciously similar to indie artist's design, but with a D on it

    Truck Torrence is an indie artist, creator of the kawaii Dumpster Fire, a classic internet meme image offered as limited-edition pins and toys. Daily Wire is a website founded by right-wing provocateur Ben Shapiro, at whose Amazon store may be found a crude copy of Torrence's design.

    Here's Torrence's original animation:

    And here's a close-up of the Daily Wire clone:

    There is one "original" element: it added a "D" to make it about the Democratic Party.

    Bad merch happens. It often happens because a media site didn't (and perhaps can't be expected to) look into every item offered on co-branded online stores hosted by third parties such as Amazon.

    Daily Wire, however, appears to have played a role in designing and promoting the plagiarized shirt, so it would be nice if it explained how it came to be in that position.

    Conservative media is more vulnerable to sourcing failures because of the movement's growing dependence on memes, grifters and liars for content; see also the "x days since we published a hoax" flipchart at the Quillette offices. Read the rest

    Man in bulletproof vest and carrying "tactical" rifle arrested in WalMart

    A man was arrested at a Missouri WalMart wearing body armor and carrying "tactical weapons" -- legal carry in the state. They're holding him while they figure out what to charge him with, if anything.

    Officers responded to a call of an active shooter at the Walmart Neighborhood Market in Springfield, Police Lt. Mike Lucas said. But no shots were fired and no one was injured, police said. The man was pushing a cart and recording himself walking through the store with a cell phone when the manager pulled the fire alarm to notify customers to escape, according to CNN affiliate KYTV.

    "His intent was not to cause peace or comfort to anybody that was in the business," Lucas said. "In fact, he's lucky to be alive still to be honest."

    The facts are still to emerge, not least details of his actions while heavily armed in public. But the implication from the early reporting suggests that he's a provocateur, not a terrorist, that the "active shooter" report was false, and that it'll be tough making serious charges stick.

    In any case, his behavior and the authorities' reaction to shows the sand is shifting under open-carry, at least the long-barrelled sort intended to intimidate people and provoke a reaction. A hostile police response is now incoming, even for the whites (though note that this guy was detained by an off-duty firefighter, pulling their own gun in public).

    Consider this tweet, doing the rounds the last couple of days:

    The answer is "leave, 'cause if someone calls the sheriff that saloon's gonna be full of holes." Read the rest

    Watch a locomotive tear down Vietnam's terrifying "train street"

    Hanoi has a train track running down a thin alleyway, immediately adjacent to homes, pubs, cafes and, well, all the tourists there to see if Train Street is for real. Alexatron: "Whilst most people would argue that a train passing through their neighborhood is a crazy dangerous thing, the local Vietnamese people have turned it into a must see tourist hot spot. Trust the Vietnamese to turn a curse into a blessing and a profit.

    SimpliSafe bypassed with $2 gadget

    The Lock Picking Lawyer is one of my favorite YouTubers, and he's spreading his wings beyond the usual fare of dreadful padlocks and crap safes. Here he shows how to use a $2 generic remote control to "blind" SimpliSafe, a security gadget that's getting rave reviews from product testers.

    This however is a little 433 megahertz remote you can get them on Amazon or Ebay for about $2, and even though it's not very powerful, it's powerful enough. Let's demonstrate using this entry sensor. I'm going to arm the system, and you can see if I were to open whatever this was attached to—let's say the frontdoor—the keypad starts starts beeping telling me to enter the pin or the alarm will be triggered. Okay let's try that one more time. But before I open the front door, I'm going to press and hold the button on this remote.

    As you can see, I opened and closed the front door and SimpliSafe had no idea

    Here's a $2 one, shipping included, on eBay. Amazon matches the price. If we can't review the security of security devices, we shouldn't be reviewing them at all, should we? Read the rest

    FOOTAGE: From out of nowhere, a truck flies in

    This footage of a garage on a busy road reminded me that a) life is fleeting and b) it's high time to get those dashcams installed.

    young kid in a truck hauling a trailer got distracted and went off the road and plowed into my friends truck. This is in spicewood TX.

    The vintage car under the tarp was reportedly unharmed.

    BONUS VIDEO: Here's a truck driver receiving "instant karma" after trying to slipstream through a toll booth behind another truck. The beam comes down and hits his cab, and his tires blow up. They get spiked, perhaps, or maybe the beam coming down made the driver veer too close to the barriers. Either way, that truck ain't goin' far.

    U.S. warned Tesla to stop giving "misleading statements" about the Model 3's safety

    In an October 7, 2018 blog post, Tesla claimed that the Model 3 achieves the lowest probability of injury of any vehicle ever tested by NHTSA. Alas, no.

    NHTSA Chief Counsel Jonathan Morrison sent Tesla CEO Elon Musk a cease-and-desist letter in October last year to say it had become aware of “misleading statements” made by the company about the vehicle’s safety rating.

    The agency’s main contention was with Tesla’s claim in a blog post that month that NHTSA tests showed the Model 3 has “the lowest probability of injury of all cars the safety agency has ever tested.”

    Tldr, the agency insists that its crash ratings in the warehouse, the stars, aren't injury probabilities on the road. Here's the cease-and-decist sent to Tesla, exposed with a FOIA request.

    It includes a response from Al Prescott, Tesla's deputy chief counsel, telling the NHTSA it doesn't understand its own safety tests and claiming that it is "taking sides" among auto manufacturers.

    Man ordered to retrieve the refrigerator he threw down a cliff

    A man in Almeria, Spain, disposed of an old fridge by throwing it down a steep incline. Thinking it amusing, he had video recorded of the act and posted to social media. It went viral, the authorities found out about it, and he has now been fined—and ordered to retrieve the fridge.

    He was fined €45,000 (£41,000; $50,000) and made to dispose of the appliance appropriately. An associate of the man filmed the fly-tipping incident and is heard in the clip joking about recycling as the fridge tumbles down the cliff. "We're going to recycle it!" he said. "How many twists and turns has it done?"

    Fifty thousand dollars for fly tipping! Not fucking around in Spain, are they? Read the rest

    Texas police lead handcuffed black man through streets by rope

    The photo shows two white police officers, on horseback, leading a roped black detainee through the streets. Galveston police chief Vernon Hale apologized, after it went viral, but said there was "no malicious intent" and that "the technique was acceptable in some scenarios." The BBC: "According to a news release from the Galveston Police Department, the two mounted officers, named only as P Brosch and A Smith, arrested Donald Neely for criminal trespass. The officers were taking Mr Neely to a police staging area. Police clarified that he was not tied with the rope, but 'was handcuffed and a line was clipped to the handcuffs"'". Read the rest

    Woman who urinated on potatoes at Walmart turns self in

    A woman suspected of urinating on the potatoes at a Pittsburgh-area Walmart has turned herself in, reports CBS News. The woman was charged with criminal mischief, open lewdness, disorderly conduct and public drunkness.

    Adds CBS, helpfully: "The bin of potatoes was at ground level."

    West Mifflin police earlier issued a photo of the suspect, but did not include footage of the crime itself.

    The LPO was informed by an employee that on the day before he noticed urine on the floor near the potatoes in the produce area. The LPO then pulled video that depicted a female at approximately 22:10 hours on July 24, 2019 urinating in the potato bins. The LPO then reported the incident to the West Mifflin Police.

    Walmart released a statement:

    “The safety of our customers is a top priority for us. This type of obscene conduct is outrageous and we immediately disposed of the affected products and sanitized the area to ensure its cleanliness and safety for our customers. We’re working with the West Mifflin Police Department to find the responsible party and have them prosecuted.”

    Scotland has its own "can opener" bridge

    Tam Lindsay (tambothejambo on twitter) witnessed a spectacular mistake by a bus driver in West Lothian that tore the roof off his double-decker ride.

    Out a walk in Fauldhouse and heard a huge collision. Local bus tried to go under railway bridge and took top tier of bus

    The error was egregious enough for the driver to be charged, reports the BBC.

    No-one was injured and the Lothian Country bus driver was the only occupant of the vehicle at the time. A spokesman for the operator said: "We can confirm one of our vehicles was involved in an incident earlier today in the Fauldhouse area and we are fully assisting Police Scotland with their inquiries."

    Adds the BBC:

    A report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.

    Toddler jumps on airport conveyor belt, is conveyed to bag room

    Hilarity fading to horror, like everything else on the internet. NBC News reports minor injuries for the little boy who found his way into ATL's bowels.

    The small boy walked away from his mother at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport while she attempted to print out her boarding pass at a kiosk, according to an Atlanta police report. The mother told police she looked away from her son "for one second" and he disappeared. ... Eventually the boy reached a Transportation Security Administration baggage area where TSA immediately noticed him come through on the belt and a man picks him up off the belt and to safety. Emergency medical services treated the boy for a "severely swollen and bruised" right hand before he was transported to a hospital, according to the Atlanta police report.

    Speeding yacht rams anglers' boat

    "Hey! Heeeey! HEY! Oh my God."

    UPDATE: Charges and a lawsuit were filed against Marlin Lee Larsen, the skipper of the speeding boat. Larsen claimed it was "fake news".

    Mr Larsen’s son-in-law, who also was on the boat, told investigators that he had warned his father-in-law to pay attention, that he sometimes saw him using his mobile phone while driving the boat and he had been off-and-on his phone the morning of the crash, according to the sheriff’s report. ... Mr Larsen told The Oregonian the accusation that he was using his phone at the time of the crash was “fake news.” He pleaded not guilty to charges of reckless endangerment and assault and said the lawsuit was unnecessary because no one was seriously hurt.

    The charges were dropped upon Larsen's death at 75. Read the rest

    What it's like to use a 5″ Black and White TV as a computer monitor

    Adrian Storey decided to use a 5" portable TV--a monochrome cathode ray tube the size and weight of a bag of sugar--as a computer monitor. The first problem: it uses a 3.5mm jack as its sole RF input. There were further problems.

    1980s 5″ BW TV connected to a PC as 3rd monitor – Display port to HDMI cable into HDMI to composite video adapter, composite video adapter into old VCR, old VCR RF out into coaxial to 3.5mm mono jack adaptor. Mono jack to TV!!

    Achievement unlocked :)

    Ultimately the whole exercise was a little pointless

    Fun, though! Read the rest
