Tween Dream Nightmare

  • Pinal County sheriff’s deputies say a “rip crew” used a car made to look like a police cruiser to make a traffic stop on another vehicle, in which there just happened to be about 320 pounds of weed.
  • This pair of early rescue masks, shown above, dates from between the mid-1800s and World War I. They look a bit familiar, right? Almost a 100 years before Darth Vader and 3-CPO hit the big screen in “Star Wars” in 1977, these two smoke helmets were worn by firefighters carrying our rescues in smoke-logged buildings. The buzz among collectors is that George Lucas’s designers must have found inspiration in these smoke helmets and other like them. In fact, one well-known 19th-century manufacturer was named Vajen-Bader—you could easily get the name Vader from that.
  • During an investigation into sex trafficking for a two-part collaboration with NPR’s All Things Considered, Youth Radio managed to obtain a pimp’s hand-written business plan titled “Keep It Pimpin” which details “how the pimp wants to expand his trafficking business locally as well as nationally.”
  • TMZ spoke with several head shops in the Los Angeles area and we’re told — not only have sales jumped — but many of the customers specifically asked for “the stuff Miley was smoking.” No … mentioning Miley did not get them a discount.
    ‘What a shovel face!’
  • To combat the monotony of going through the booking process every weekend, Ransom has taken a unique approach. 30 different mugshots = 30 different and unique looks.
  • The tourists who come to Nikko love to take photos of monkeys, but as this exciting Fuji TV news report shows, the monkeys are wild animals that are not meant to live in such close contact with humans
  • Thieves now have the capabilities to steal your credit card information without laying a hand on your wallet.
    It’s new technology being used in credit and debit cards, and it’s already leaving nearly 140 million people at-risk for electronic pickpocketing.
    It all centers around radio frequency identification technology, or RFID.
    You’ll find it in everything from your passports to credit and debit cards.
    It’s supposed to make paying for things faster and easier.
    You just wave the card, and you’ve paid.
    But now some worry it’s also making life easier for crooks trying to rip you off.
  • Investigators say the victim was forced to remove his trousers – at which point the men held the victim down – fully conscious – while using a bread knife to castrate him. The severed testicles were taken away by the perpetrator.
  • WASHINGTON — The cannabis industry has flexed its muscles in 15 states where it’s legal to smoke marijuana for medical purposes. Now the industry is ready to go to work in Washington. A new trade group, called the National Cannabis Industry Association, is an attempt to bring together sellers, growers and manufacturers and to promote pot on Capitol Hill.
  • The manipulation of devil sticks (also devilsticks, flower sticks, devil-sticks, rhythm sticks, gravity sticks, or juggling sticks) is a form of gyroscopic juggling or equilibristics, and is generally considered to be one of the circus arts. Sometimes called devil-sticking, other terms for the activity include twirling, sticking, and stick juggling.
  • What are the beautiful, bite-sized discs known as Pogs? If you’re a 90s baby, you remember them as the awesome game which everyone was obsessed by throughout grade school. Thin, cardboard circles known as “Pogs” were stacked and hit with heavier, thicker plastic or metal “slammers” used to try and flip them over. Pogs landing face up would then be collected by the slam artist and sometimes not returned if the game was “for keeps.” A kid’s Pog collection was often filled with images, characters and titles from his or her favorite television show, movie, or comic book. The cooler Pogs were often laminated, engraved, or sometimes holographic. Slammers could also be embellished using metal, spiked edges or even insects suspended within them. The possibilities were endless.
  • Kansas City police officers mistook a backfiring van for gunshots and shot at the van and eventually shot out the windows of their patrol car Thursday night at Interstate 435 and Gregory Boulevard.
  • Tourists may soon be able to tour the sealed area around the Chernobyl nuclear plant, site of the world’s worst nuclear accident. Ukraine’s Emergency Ministry says the so-called Chernobyl zone will be opened next year for those who wish to learn more about the nuclear tragedy that occurred 24 years ago. Chernobyl’s reactor No. 4 exploded on April 26, 1986, spewing radiation over a large swath of northern Europe.
  • Since the dawn of the Internet, tutorials showing would-be scammers how to fleece others have been available online. But for novices who can’t be bothered to scour the Net for these far flung but free resources, the tricks of the trade now can be learned through the equivalent of community college classes in e-thievery, or or via intensive, one-on-one online apprenticeships. Take the program currently being marketed on several fraud forums — it’s called Cash Paradise University (see screen shot below). For $50, a newbie scammer can learn the basics of online fraud, such as hiding one’s identity and location online, and how to obtain reliable stolen credit card numbers. For a $75 fee and an investment of about 2 to 3 hours, one can become fluent in the ways of “Skype carding,” or selling hacked and newly-created Skype accounts that have been loaded with funds from stolen credit cards.
