This guy doesn't have very good cat technique, but he's trying, and the cats seem patient.

It looks like Instagram has engaged its final crackdown... You used to be able to scroll endlessly through someone's stuff, but then they capped it at a few pages of scroll before stopping you. uBlockOrigin and NoScript were able to bypass that, but as of now/today it seems like you can no longer get anywhere on the site without logging in. Oh well! Instagram is dead ;p
Let me know if this works, though:

When a pharmacist discovered that 57 vials of the Moderna vaccine were left to spoil outside a Wisconsin clinic’s refrigerator in December, the worker immediately suspected a colleague who had spread false and outlandish claims, according to court records.

For months, Steven Brandenburg, the overnight pharmacist at Aurora Medical Center in Grafton, Wis., had said he thought the vaccine would harm people, make them infertile and implant them with microchips.

Now, federal authorities say his belief in debunked claims went beyond the vaccine. The pharmacist, who has agreed to plead guilty to charges of attempting to spoil the vaccine, also believes the Earth is flat and that the sky is not real, according to court documents.

On Wednesday, Brown revealed that the online pledge is being investigated by the crowdfunding site, following allegations of fraud.

It used to be that you'd have to perform Jackass-level stunts to get that kind of cash, but now you just have to prove your stupidity.

You know, there was a time in this country where smart people ... did things ... and there was a time in this country, a long time ago, when people wrote movies. Movies had stories, so you'd care whose ass it was and why it was farting, and I believe that time can come again.

A 28-year-old man died after a device meant to be used at a gender reveal party exploded, according to New York State Police... He was the father-to-be, according to police.
...
Police did not give further information on what kind of device it was, except that it was not intended to harm others.

Earlier this month, a Michigan man died after a small cannon exploded at a baby shower, police said. While the cannon was not directly related to the baby's gender, it was fired to "celebrate the baby's pending arrival," Michigan State Police said in a statement.

Days after South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg fatally struck a man while driving in September, detectives told the Republican official they had found a pair of broken reading glasses inside his Ford Taurus. They belonged to the man he killed.

That was a problem, detectives said, because Ravnsborg, 44, said he didn’t know he had hit a man until the following day, when he returned to the scene and found the body of Joseph Boever, 55, in a ditch.

“They’re Joe’s glasses, so that means his face came through your windshield,” one of the detectives said in an interview released by the South Dakota Department of Public Safety on Tuesday.

A landlord in Albany, New York, is facing kidnapping charges after he allegedly tied up two of his tenants, covered their heads with pillowcases and left them at a snowy cemetery.

...

Police said he used zip ties and tape to restrain them before covering their heads with pillowcases and forcing them into his vehicle. Police said Douglas then drove them at gunpoint to a cemetery where he left them in the snow.

Eventually, the female victim was able to free herself and get help from a nearby house.

Douglas had been frustrated as he was unable to evict the tenants due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Times-Union reported. New York state placed a moratorium on evictions for tenants who have experienced hardship due to the pandemic until May 1.

so did he chicken out of killing them or was he just hoping the intimidation would get them to leave (i'm thinking former... plus maybe he thought there'd be open graves or something)
