By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Humor & WTF | Posted: Feb 18, 2015 1:12 am

If you've ever parked your vehicle in a car park and been dismayed to find a ding on the door on your return, you might want to send your condolences to the residents of Mayville, Wisconsin while shopping in the Piggly Wiggly supermarket chain. In an astonishing security video released online, a panicked 92 year old hits nine vehicles in the span of just 22 seconds.

 

 

Luckily no-one, including the driver was injured in the incident, which Mayville Police Chief Christopher MacNeill tells the WISN network "in 23 years of law enforcement, I've never seen anything like this". Despite this, the driver won't be fined although his licence has been revoked.

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

By: Chris Smith | More News: Humor & WTF | Posted: Feb 15, 2015 12:02 pm

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.

Racing Greyhound tests positive for meth

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Humor & WTF | Posted: Feb 12, 2015 6:32 am

Thanks to the exploits of 'Breaking Bad' hero/villain Walter White, for better or worse meth is now a household term and whilst we wouldn't want to make light of a terrible addiction that's causing great harm across the world, this story was simply too strange to pass up.

An Australian Greyhound has tested positive for the illegal substances amphetamine and methamphetamine, after it won a race last month. Its trainer, Jenny Hunt claims to be unaware of how the substance entered the dog's body saying "I am bewildered how that dog got something in it like that." Hunt's father in law, Graeme Bate was last year stripped of his Hall Of Fame award last year following five charges of administering banned substances to his greyhounds.

 

The investigation will continue.

Discovered on the My eXtreme PC Facebook group and submitted by a fan, sometimes you really have to sit back and think about what weird and wonderful things appear within your own, friends or clients PCs.

Personally I've found a fork located within my computer a few years back, probably due to the fact I eat meals at my computer - this comes alongside numerous stories of dead animals, insects and possibly even small household pets.

 

If you're thinking about taking on Cooler Master's cool Nutella thermal paste trick, it's extremely likely that you're going to take in some fairly nasty inhabitants of your own.

 

Take a look below for a few more awkward, weird and unusual PC-dwellers (including dust) within and feel free to share your own.

The next WD40? Nutella is apparently a great thermal paste

By: Chris Smith | More News: Humor & WTF | Posted: Feb 10, 2015 5:07 am

Thanks to Cooler Master, I've ascended one step closer toward the PC Master Race pearly gates by learning that Nutella can not only be used as a delicious snack, filling or spread - it's also built to keep your CPU cool under load, working as a replacement for thermal paste.

 

 

Move over WD40, it seems that we're going to start using Nutella for everything now. This isn't a joke either - however don't expect your spreadable conductor to last, Geek.com made note that your new super-material will dry out quickly and stop working within a short time period.

 

This video was made and released on world Nutella day - what better way to celebrate?

The Odessa American reported: "His father, Jason Steward, said the family had been to see "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" last weekend. His son brought a ring to his class at Kermit Elementary School and told another boy his magic ring could make the boy disappear. Steward said the principal said threats to another child's safety would not be tolerated - whether magical or not. Principal Roxanne Greer declined to comment on the matter. "All student stuff is confidential," Greer said. She referred a call from the Odessa American to Kermit ISD Superintendent Bill Boyd, who did not return a phone call".

 

The New York Daily News also reported "I assure you my son lacks the magical powers necessary to threaten his friend's existence. If he did, I'm sure he'd bring him right back".

By: Chris Smith | More News: Humor & WTF | Posted: Jan 31, 2015 3:59 am

Every single year Todd and Aaron from Mega64 release their game awards in style, throwing in various curve-ball categories like the 'biggest thing I don't care about' and 'girl'.

 

 

If you're into over-the-top and dry humor, these guys will certainly tickle your fancy - however Rayman fans beware, you're in for a bad time. There's also some vulgar language located within, so please keep this away from the kids.

 

If you're looking for a bit of insight into the madness, the video description reads: "In keeping with the times, Todd and Aaron return for another awards show with safety in mind. Shedding their past reputations with the help of a legal attorney, the duo hopes to create a more politically correct production. Safe for the whole family, these awards hope to inspire others to become better people in the new year 2015."

Comcast stuffs customers bill up, changes his name to "A**hole"

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Humor & WTF | Posted: Jan 29, 2015 6:39 am

One of Comcast's customers in Spokane, Washington won't be too happy with his bill. Ricardo Brown received his last bill, but his first name was misspelled as "Asshole".

Comcast has confirmed to Ars Technica that the name was genuinely misspelled, and that the company is looking into technology solutions so that this will never happen again. Comcast is also looking at its internal training methods for its representatives, so that customers are treated with respect. Ricardo had this happen after he and his wife decided to cancel their Comcast TV service.

 

When the press started getting a hold of the story, Comcast contacted Brown saying that the employee responsible for the name change would be fired. On top of that, the $60 cancellation fee they had to pay would be waived, and that the account name would be corrected. An update to BoardingArea's story stated that Comcast "offer[ed] her a full refund for the last two years and two years of service at no charge".

You have 24 hours to read this book before it self destructs

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Humor & WTF | Posted: Jan 22, 2015 10:58 am

In something that feels like it's right out of a James Bond movie or Inspector Gadget, James Patterson is giving away 1000 copies of a self-destructing digital advance copy of his latest novel, Private Vegas.

 

 

If you don't feel like you're stepping on the side of craziness, well, there's a real self-destructing copy of the book that costs $294,038. This copy includes a dedicated bomb squad, and more. You could spend nearly $300,000 in a much better way - feel free to donate it for me for example - but hey, if you want a self-destructing book and your own bomb squad, you know where to go.
