I’d like to think that it was thankful.. but realistically it probably thought that it was being attacked and that its own efforts freed it. I mean, it didn’t turn to look or *anything* ;p

if you have nothing better to do, you could browse this twitter of the mayor from Jaws
http://twitter.com/MayorLVaughn

& there's also a Matt Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss' character) twitter... who seems unrelated, but they have interacted

both seeming to comment in character on shark / jaws related things...

& a Brody & Quint upon further checking...

well my cat has brutally murdered the chipmunk she'd been stalking for a couple weeks... i disposed of the incomplete corpse w/ a hand trowel (hand trowel thread!)

she licks her fur of course, so i'm wondering how much chipmunk residue i'm petting...

Surprising not to see a "guess" thread in UP for that one, and one of the LL comments points out that hoodies might be America's version of Brazil's motorcycle helmet ;p ... Anyways, seems like a pointless way to end up in jail; those things must have had the tracking apps on and/or some sort of security features that make them useless if stolen like this.. wouldn't they? I can't think of a way that they could have any success with this sort of thing.

"i would've given him some food & used a less threatening hand trowel... but w/ work gloves in case the little ingrate had rabies"

+1 Deer. And throw in a sweet voice with phrases like, "Oh hi, Mr. Raccoon! You're in quite a pickle. Have some cat food!" and it would respond much better :D

"twitter of the mayor from Jaws"
Seems to be a combination of Trump satire thrown in there :p

"she licks her fur of course, so i'm wondering how much chipmunk residue i'm petting..."
That brings up an interesting premise... like... do cats congratulate each other secretly by recognizing all the death smells on one another's fur?

"I'm Hal Reed" XD
.... wow... a comment pointed this out, but this was Parks&Rec for real :D .. I like that she was upset when they didn't drop everything to solve her problems (the attitude behind, "No sir, have a good day!") — like, "You haven't heard my complaints at all! I'm telling you that I have no money and no one will help me and I can't get work because I was too old when the Internet got complicated and jobs only hire online and I don't know where to go for help and I came to the city council because it's a brick and mortar public building and there were a lot of people here and I thought I would state my case for the record and be pointed to a job or assistance!" I think that's what was going on, anyways :D

... kind of terrifying from this angle: so much has gotten online (job hiring/searching, resources like financial assistance, etc.) that people who couldn't keep up with the transition from paper to digital will get buried and people who can't keep up later with further changes will see the same thing happen to them (i.e., when we get older, maybe our reluctance to upload our consciousnesses to holo-cube implants (the devices that will replace phones and project into our retinas for viewing our software electronic displays for our contacts and on-the-go Internet access) will make us less marketable and isolate us from the functionings of the world. All it takes is age :'(
So cocaine it up, folks! ;p

Interesting... so that's one Apple store hit Friday and another hit Saturday... coordinated, or just copycats realizing/thinking that it's an easy target after seeing videos of the Friday thieves? ..These Saturday thieves didn't have as much self control as the Friday thieves. Only one of the Friday thieves was impatient and obvious, but the Saturday thieves were full speed right after entering the store. One more of these and it will be a confirmed trend! If LL is any indication, I don't think this trend will help racial relations much ;)

..
"pet peeve: people who casually attempt to murder other people"

D:
That was a lot of attempted murder right there. That's some L.A. gang-level violence. Good thing the driver didn't hesitate when they spotted the weapon(s), though it *did* sound like the guy in the car had been hit.. hmm..

Someone in the comments named "Alexander Maikhrovsky" has been leaving pretty funny comments. Either they're really stupid, or — as I'd prefer it to be — they're pretending to be the type of person who believes in the energy release garbage that someone would have to believe in for this sort of thing to be sold ;p

"i assume 3D printing has massively improved cosplay"

Definitely! I've heard of people making lots of monies by selling their 3D part designs so that people can just print the costumes.

"The new hero is named Renée Schneider, an 86-year-old widow who joined the Overwatch peacekeeping force to stay busy after the death of her husband. In the developer update announcing the new playable character, Blizzard wrote, “Whether you’re playing as Renée and slowly hobbling through a firefight, or as one of her allies forced to constantly look after this helpless old lady, we expect players to feel a mixture of disgust, pity, horror, and affection for Overwatch’s frailest hero yet.”"

"A friend who was traveling with Coronado said they asked Crenshaw for directions when he suddenly jumped up and stabbed Coronado in his arm. He was taken to the hospital."

Nothing about this makes sense. How'd he jump up and stab him with his feet?

And how'd a dude on his back stab someone in the arm with his feet, anyways?

"there needs to be a standardized volume level for videos..."

+1
If I listen to music on YouTube, I usually get an expected level (max volume on YouTube level, medium volume on my computer), but when I switch to iTunes it's usually super loud. Movies play so quiet that I have to use headphones. Sites like Imgur seem only to let me have medium volume or no volume so I have to use my PC volume to adjust, and Instagram videos can be all sorts of surprise.
