Man using drone to perv has it shot down by Kentucky man with shotgun

Drones and FPV flight can be all fun and games, however, for one Kentucky man it was a major breach of his personal privacy that saw him take action against one of these contraptions - shooting it out of the sky with his shotgun as it, and the man behind it, were allegedly spying on his 16-year-old daughter in broad daylight.

"When he came down with a video camera right over my back deck, that's not going to work" proclaimed the man to Ars Technica. He further clarified that the drone was stationary and hovering and that he "would never have shot it if it was flying."

 

This disgruntled man goes by the name of William Merideth and says that the main reason he shot the drone out of the sky isn't a general invasion of privacy or an irrational hatred for drones, it's that his teenage daughter was lounging by the pool at the time this drone was capturing footage.

Using Snapchat whilst speeding is never a good idea, here's an example

One young girl was reminded 'the hard way' as to why using your mobile phone whilst driving is never a good idea. Lead off with a Snapchat captioned "Cuzidoooo," it was all smiles as another 'snap' followed showing a speedometer sitting at "180" kilometers per hour (over 110 miles per hour).

The smiles were swiftly removed as Snapchat was instantly informed of this Spanish woman looking for "Socorroooo," or 'Help' in English. Next up came a picture of a totaled car and some friends visiting in hospital.

This story not only helps illustrate that using your mobile whilst driving is certainly dangerous, it helps remind people exaclty what can go wrong if you do so. Even more interestingly is the fact that this person took to Snapchat seemingly before all other means, aiming to inform the world of her blunders before dialing for emergency services.

Always check for cats pre-flight

Surprisingly enough the pilot of this light aircraft manages to keep his composure fairly well on what was intended to be a scenic flight close around the airport in this soon-to-be viral video.

 

 

Not too long after taking off, the pilot was startled by a cat climbing up the wing to say hello and you can see on video the poor captains eyes open wider than they ever have before when he notices exactly what kind of stow-away he has on board.

 

You've got to be kitten me right meow, this is one of the most unexpected things I've ever seen on YouTube that's for sure. Captain Kitty and all other crew are safe, just in case you can't be bothered watching the video yourself.

Another group email fail, this one by Aussie supermarket Woolworths

We've seen a few group email fails in our time, ranging from accidentally sending secret hate mail to the person that is targeted to putting every sender in the CC box instead of BCC when they're bidding for a Bitcoin investment.

Police spokesman Jeff Strossner told the Colorado Springs Gazette: "He was having technology problems, so he took it to the back alley and destroyed it. He got tired of fighting with his computer for the last several months". The paper reported that Hinch "shot the darn thing" when ctrl+alt+delete "consistently did not work".

 

The paper added: "He was able to wreak the kind of revenge most of us only dream about. The computer is not expected to recover".

A mischievous schoolboy's dream, this USB will kill your PC

Thinking back to my high-schooling days, the amount of bored teenagers that would find out various ways to break, maim or destroy school computers was "too damn high" as the popular meme states.

Instead of turning the CRT monitor display sideways, taking the rubber belts off the CD drive trays to ensure they don't work or trying to use strong magnets to wreak havoc on CRT monitors and hard drives alike, this USB drive has been developed and discovered on this Russian website, naming it "USB killer" and with an obvious motive in mind.

 

Translated by Kukuruku Hub, the basic function of this device is to fry your computer: "When we connect it up to the USB port, an inverting DC/DC converter runs and charges capacitors to -110V. When the voltage is reached, the DC/DC is switched off. At the same time, the filed transistor opens. It is used to apply the -110V to signal lines of the USB interface. When the voltage on capacitors increases to -7V, the transistor closes and the DC/DC starts. The loop runs till everything possible is broken down."

The drama llama strikes again - massive llama chase in the US unfolds

With as many as 100's of Americans glued to their televisions this morning, news developed of two South American camelids having escaped from Arizona's Wildlife World Zoo and rampaging the streets.

Covered live on news channels like FOX10, the use of helicopters, multiple reporters and call-in experts were all part of this chase - resembling something of a Grand Theft Auto 5-star ordeal.

 

As explained to us by News.com.au, an expert called in to Fox News explaining that "you don't want to be kicked by one or headbutted by one. This is a very large animal and it can cause serious damage to your vehicle," drumming in the fact that this was actually a slightly serious and dangerous campaign.

 

The drama llama's have since been rounded up and delivered back into custody - we're wondering if their punishment is a cut on carrot rations for the rest of the month.

This crazily-priced Ethernet cable will cost you a cool $10k

In the same league as Monster and other companies offering high-priced standard 3.5mm audio, Ethernet or HMDI options that are no better than your standard $8 item - this $10,000 Audioquest Ethernet cable apparently provides a solid design, "ensuring no critical data is lost."

If you're worried about your audio data traveling in the wrong direction, this "directional" cable is apparently only meant to be plugged in one way. Alongside this amazing feature, it's claimed that this product will also provide you with speeds of 100 Gbps across distances greater than 300 feet!

 

The cable has been pulled from e-shelves since receiving some bad press commenting on the crazy price (wonder why?), however thanks to website archiving you can still lay your eyes on the original page.
