be careful w/ octopuses (which my whole life i thought was 'octupi'... it's not!):


TACOMA, Wash. - When Jamie Bisceglia met up with some fishermen who had hooked an octopus during a fishing derby in the Tacoma Narrows August 2, she saw an opportunity for an unusual picture.

"It was a photo contest in the derby. So, crazy me, hindsight now and looking back, I probably made a big mistake," Bisceglia said.

Bisceglia put the octopus on her face and posed. At first, it grabbed with her with its suckers, and then did something she didn't expect. It bit her on the face.

"It had barreled its beak into my chin and then let go a little bit and did it again," said Bisceglia. "It was a really intense pain when it went inside and it just bled, dripping blood for a long time."

Bisceglia said the octopus was a smaller juvenile version of a giant Pacific octopus, although a spokeswoman at the Point Defiance Aquarium says it could have been a Pacific red octopus. Both have a powerful beak used to break and eat crabs, clams and mussels. And their bite contains a poisonous venom to immobilize their prey.

Bisceglia says that venom left her in incredible pain. But as owner of South Sound Salmon Sisters, she kept fishing for two more days before she finally went to the emergency room.

"And I'm still in pain," said Bisceglia. "I'm on three different antibiotics. This can come and go, the swelling, for months they say."

She says the whole painful experience taught her a valuable lesson about handling a live octopus.

"This was not a good idea," said Bisceglia. "I will never do it again."

"Chicago life"

So many questions! For starters: People still do drive-by shootings? Why would someone add to the problem by shooting at a moving vehicle from the side (where missed shots would *also* go into homes)? Did someone actually get hit by the drive-by SUV (as claimed by the recording person)? Isn't it weird that they just did a drive-by, but the driver still did a semi-stop for a stop sign? lulz

i tried googling 'Chicago drive by' for more info, but that's not helpful... but did answer the question "People still do drive-by shootings?", it's a yes


it also yielded this comical story from a couple weeks ago:

Driver Killed by Own Passenger in Drive-by Shooting Gone Wrong

A Chicago man is believed to have accidentally shot the driver of the car he was traveling in dead, in what police are calling a drive-by shooting gone wrong.

Jake Lee was in the front passenger seat of a vehicle being driven by Matthew Gibson around Park Manor in the city's South Side on Sunday morning when it pulled up alongside a White SUV in West 71st Street, Fox 32 reported.

Lee then used a .40 caliber handgun to fire at the SUV, but instead accidentally shot Gibson in the head. A 22-year-old man was also injured in the shooting, according to Cook County prosecutors.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Police say they’ve arrested a Florida man who’s accused of threatening his neighbors with nunchucks and bug spray before cutting his own head when he accidently hit himself with the weapon.

Daytona Beach police spokesman Messod Bendayan says 61-year-old Larry Adams complained about his neighbor’s loud music coming from a car in the parking lot of their Daytona apartment complex.

Police say Adams sprayed four of his neighbors with roach spray and swung his nunchucks in a threatening manner and hit himself.

Adams is charged with aggravated assault and battery with a deadly weapon. Volusia County jail records don’t list a lawyer for Adams.

Neighbor Cici Sylvester tells WOFL she was surprised Adams used a bug spray since she was not a roach.

When Sergeant Kyle Smith of the Washington State Patrol last night spotted a car on the shoulder of a road near the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, he assumed the vehicle was somehow disabled.

But when Smith approached the auto, he discovered that the male driver had pulled over while playing Pokémon Go simultaneously on eight separate phones.

As seen in the above photo snapped by Smith, the driver had the phones secured inside a makeshift foam carrier rig.

The driver, cops say, agreed to put the phones in the car’s rear seat before resuming his commute. The motorist, who was not identified by police, was not cited for distracted driving or any vehicular violations.

the photo of his setup

given the phone diversity, maybe he's been hired by weird people to play for them?

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A New York couple’s luxurious Florida vacation home has been taken over by dozens of black vultures that are vomiting and defecating everywhere.

The Palm Beach Post reports the Casimano family can’t even visit the $702,000 home they purchased earlier this year in the Ibis Golf and Country Club.

Siobhan Casimano describes the smell as “like a thousand rotting corpses,” and says vultures have destroyed their screened enclosures, overtaken the pool and dented their cars with their beaks.

Neighbor Cheryl Katz has also complained about the issue. She says another neighbor excessively feeds vultures, causing them to keep returning.

Neighborhood president Gordon Holness says the association is somewhat limited in what they can do because the vultures are migratory birds protected by federal law.

Police near Chicago say six teenagers were trying to break into a house when the elderly homeowner told them to leave and fired a gun after they refused.

The youngest of the group, 14, was shot and killed.

Now the other five, including four under 18, have been charged with first-degree murder as adults, the Lake County Sheriff's Office said in a statement on Facebook.

"Illinois law has long held felons accountable for any foreseeable deaths that occur during the commission or attempted commission of a 'forcible felony.' This includes the death of innocent bystanders in addition to the deaths of co-felons," State Attorney Michael G. Nerheim said in his statement.

Much better than those cases where a criminal sues the person that they robbed.

From the CNN article: "The resident saw the headlights of the stolen Lexus they were driving in the area of his driveway" ( http://www...der-charge-burglary/index.html ).

"Stolen Lexus" — fantastic. Either they're smart and were driving a stolen car so that they couldn't have the burglary traced back to them if seen, and/or it was just more info on their defective characters. The article mentions that "most" of those arrested have criminal histories, so it sounds like things will turn out well.

..
"Neighborhood president Gordon Holness says the association is somewhat limited in what they can do because the vultures are migratory birds protected by federal law."

If they can't stop that one neighbor from feeding them, it's time to kill them (discretely); it's only wrong if you get caught ;p

A jury found a grocery clerk guilty of killing a 17-year-old boy who left the store with a beer he didn't pay for in Memphis, Tennessee, in a case that had sparked protests, authorities said.

Anwar Ghazali was convicted of second-degree murder after a four-day trial, Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich said Friday.

The shooting happened in March 2018, after Dorian Harris walked out of the Top Stop Shop with a beer without paying, Weirich said.

Security video of the incident played in court shows that Ghazali, while behind the counter dealing with another customer, pulled out a handgun and pointed it at Harris. He then ran outside to follow the teen and fired several times.

Afterward, he returned to the store and told a witness, "I think I shot him." He did not call the police, and neither did any other customer inside the store.

Harris was shot at least three times and was left to bleed out. His body was found two days later in a yard near the store with gunshots in the back of his thigh.

Ghazali's defense attorney, Blake Ballin, told CNN in an email that Ghazali maintains he acted recklessly that night but his intention was never to harm Harris.

TikTok is just a content-brander (i.e., they make nothing but put their brand on other peoples' stuff). Never use them! (For real, though.) They're basically a Chinese data-mining platform. There's one story in particular of some kind of Internet-celeb uploading a video with TikTok (not even sharing the video for the public), then TikTok took his likeness and used it for their advertisements ( http://cul...g-people-stealing-information/ ). They're in a list of things that I'll enjoy if posted on Imgur, but I always down-vote those to do my part in reducing their exposure ;p

So cool. Skins seem to be the winners, totes. That video has some replay value :D
Someone in the comments pointed out that there's a good suplex at :48
I hope they were fighting about something cool, like, whose drinking club is the most violent or something.

"but i can't stop watching that cat video! it has probably spawned thousands of new users"

I think it's fine watching via 3rd parties like Twitter or Imgur, just don't visit their website directly :D

Someone made a great collection of raccoon gifs:

Some should be familiar, but there were a lot of new ones. The bathing raccoon in a sink is an easy winner ;D

in brawl, there's some sort of half-giant skins guy in the background (essentially first to engage)... would be nice to see how he did (probably not as exciting as i would hope though :p)


people seem to over-feed their raccoons :p

you can tell by the diameter of his shins & his socks that he's a dork :p (not that there's anything wrong w/ that)

That monkey video looks super fake to me... I'm kind of surprised that none of the LL comments thought so too. It fits the bill for a CGI project: very short run time, limited view, no complicated pieces, sort of jerky/unnatural motions by the monkey... I also can't find any actual source on a real life incident, just reposts of the same apocryphal source (Why would anyone stop filming at that point? And no additional video or photo anywhere else?). It could just be early in the story's life, but I'll call, "Fake!" and check back in a week if I remember ;D

..
"kid getting arrested for making school shooting threat on a video game..."

That seems staged.. not "staged" in the "totally fake" way, but "staged" like the officers were trying to make a PSA or "Scared Straight!" video by baiting them into interacting with the consequences (and with platforming officers) rather than simply making a procedural arrest (i.e., stating the charges, cuffing, and heading out).

The main officer seems like a bit of an idiot; he's doing the generic cop voice and mannerisms, but he can't quite pull a thought together without tumbling through grammar and unplanned sentences. This was a gem: "You need a roof over your head, food and water. He doesn't need the games. You should take those away because these adults that are influencing may have done that in the past, but guess what, they're not in trouble today. He is because he made those statements. We can't put on what they've said in the past to give him justification why he said what he said. He made the charge, he's going to face the consequences."
.. Like, I know what he means, but wow, those sentences were awful and barely sequiturs ;D

"Good job" by the kid admitting to his screen name :| .. that's Internet 101 — do not connect your RL name to your screen name, at least not when the law is involved. Even with them pulling a quotation of him saying his real name online ("I, [censored in case employers Google him later in life], vow to bring my father's M15 to school and kill seven people."), he still could have denied that that was his screen name making that statement. They got an easy confession out of him, which reinforced the simple lawyer advice to never tell the police anything. They may have simply tracked him down by his stated name and not had any actual IT work to back it up, so he just gave them free evidence.

I also don't get the YouTube comments calling this woman a bad mother. She breaks down right after she finds out that her preteen son is going to be charged with a felony, so her arguments make sense: she's trying to vouch for him to prevent an arrest. Sure, there's the "Everyone says it's couldn't be *their* son" debate, but that's usually after-the-*fact* (comically late), not before-the-*hypothetical* as this is. She was simply trying to get the police to see what a harmless dork and mother's boy this kid is ;D so that he can actually get a decent job instead of dealing with the felony restrictions that he'll now face [at least while he waits for his records to be sealed]. Felony arrest is a career-ender, so it seems cold to fault her pleas.

They have zero morality when it comes to breaking ethical standards surrounding gene-editing and human testing, so yeah, the new “Apes” movies should have been in China, not San Fran :D

“note: the kid used a fake name when he made the "bring my dad's gun" statement.”

Oh, so maybe there was an IT trail. They still need to connect his physical body with the IP, though, so he still gave them a freebee ;p

Impressive trail of destruction left by boy driving parent’s car:

... there must have been anger involved because he had to have reversed and reengaged at least once to keep going. If it was purely accidental, he probably would have stopped with the first of the four crashes :D

lol... I love how they zoomed through an entire day (or two?) worth of cooking. This must be the upper limit on these montage cooking videos :D

..
"i wish it started a few moments sooner"

Yeah, I even missed who was the initiator the first play through just because I was still full-screening as it started. Looks like the employee threw something at the start.. though I'm not having any luck finding info from before that; and even being logged into LL with adblocker disabled, the comments wouldn't load. I did go down a rabbit hole with the ebaumsworld posting of the same video. Someone made the claim that there are just as many videos of white people doing the same at fast food restaurants, but when pressed they only found one — the other videos they posted were just weirdos doing weird stuff, like a homeless man bringing a dead raccoon into an SF McDonald's (no big fighting). Anyways, it led to this video:

"Officer Pulls Gun on Student Picking Up Trash Outside of Dorm Building"
[happened May, 2019 outside of a Naropa University dorm — Naropa is a weird (hippie) private college in Boulder, CO]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9SZlypyK-4
The title may be dishonest. Not sure from the video if the officer actually *pulled* a firearm; the footage indicates that he had his hand on his weapon but didn't draw, and it may only have been his taser that he was prepping. But the officer is laughably retarded and clearly in the wrong for not being able to read the situation (like, just listen to have affluent the suspect's voice is, lol). The only thing I'd fault the suspect on was that he didn't seem to know that people typically carry IDs that have their home addresses on them:

[Officer]: "I'm just asking you if you have something with your address on it, then that would help me."
[Atkinson]: "Oh my gosh. No I don't; how am I supposed to have something with my address on it?"
[Officer]: "Well, a lot of people have a driver's license"
[Atkinson]:"They just carry something with their address on it?"
[Officer]: "Yeah; an ID."
[Atkinson]: "This is ridiculous, bro."

I think it's a terrible idea to not listen to officer commands, but because it worked out in this case and resulted in some hilarious back-and-forths, I give it a pass :D

..
"seems like Jeff Goldblum will be doing a Bourdain-y show (but less-food-focused): [...]
unfortunately it seems like on yet another monthly pay channel, not sure i like this trend"

Seems pretty wacky :D .. but yeah, being on Disney+ is a "No thanks" for me — they probably wouldn't air his Bourdain-esque suicide on live TV :/

..
"extreme dick"

Lulz... Before he started walking up I was already thinking, "Stop blocking the aisle, you fucks," but a push was extreme :D .. plus, with no groceries and a slow pace, it's not looking like he had any reason to be in a hurry about someone blocking the aisle...
