This guy sure is a big idiot.
And now, for no particularly good reason, here’s Paul of LastLevelTech sending the video output of the Wii U into a Game Gear TV Tuner.

Two Placer County teenage girls were arrested for allegedly using drugged milkshakes to knock out the parents of one of the girls so they could log on to the Internet, Rocklin police said.
Internet access at the Rocklin home was routinely shut off at 10 p.m., said Lt. Lon Milka, a department spokesman. […]
“The girls wanted to use the Internet, and they’d go to whatever means they had to,” Milka said.
Oh for crying out loud.
For some reason today I am linking a mashup up Busta Rhymes “Don’t Touch Me (Throw da Water on ‘Em)” and Koji Kondo’s “Athletic” from the game Yoshi’s Island. Music by tenlettername, visualization by stuff3.
As part of his newest exhibit at the Palais de Tokyo, French artist Fabrice Hyber sculpted a massive cubic meter of red lipstick sitting atop a cold cement slab. The sculpture, entitled “1M3 de beauté” is part of a larger exhibition called “Matières Premières” (raw materials) showing through the holidays.
So, uh, yeah. A cubic meter of lipstick.
Parahawking is an activity that combines paragliding with falconry. Birds of prey are trained to fly with paragliders, guiding them to thermals for in-flight rewards and performing aerobatic manoeuvres.

I’ve been thinking about getting a Nook for a while now, but I haven’t for one reason: the inability to play Wipeout on one. I demand this of all my electronic devices.
Well, it seems it’s indeed possible to play Wipeout on a Nook Simple Touch after rooting it and modifying the kernel, so I guess I’ll have to put one on my Christmas list.

Eddie Archbold ate so many live roaches he had to cover his mouth with his hand to keep them from crawling out. He swallowed the three-inch insects faster than he could chew, trying to down as many as possible in four minutes to win a pet python in a most unusual eating contest.
Over the course of the night, Archbold ate more than 60 grams of meal worms, 35 three-inch-long “super worms” and part of a bucket full of discoid roaches. He started vomiting after the last contest and collapsed outside the store.
Dr. Bill Kern, a professor of entomology at the University of Florida, said it could have been an allergic reaction to so much foreign protein that killed Archbold.

Nate Anderson, Ars Technica:
You may not be the kind of person who gets his kicks by standing at the end of a runway and firing a small laser into the cockpit of jets during their takeoffs and landings—but plenty of other people are. In 2005, the FBI only heard about 283 such incidents; this year, it expects to record 3,700.
In an official blog post about the topic, the FBI quotes federal air marshal George Johnson saying that the laser attacks have reached an “epidemic level.” Things have gotten so bad that the FBI has created a special group to address the issue, one with the unwieldy name “Laser Strike Working Group National Initiative” (which could use a laser strike of its own).
Some things about this story:

An Oregon man who stripped nude at Portland’s airport security to protest what he saw as invasive measures was found not guilty of indecent exposure.
Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge David Rees ruled Wednesday that John Brennan’s act was one of protest and therefore, protected speech.
Try adding some nudity to your next protest to spice things up a bit!
