Crap you should read Thursday (7/21)

 

Terrorist Infiltrators

The Department of Homeland Security released an intelligence report this week called Insider Threat to Utilities, and it warns that “violent extremists have, in fact, obtained insider positions…outsiders have attempted to solicit utility-sector employees” for actual attacks as well as cyber attacks.

This information is credible, and likely stemmed from the treasure trove of Intel ripped from Bin Laden’s dead hands. Its known that Bin Laden was trying to plan something for the 9/11 anniversary, but admitting that DHS is positive that Al Qaeda members have infiltrated our Power Plants etc is pretty damn scary. Former White House Counter Terrorism advisor Richard Clarke  points out that “there are a lot of very sensitive facilities where someone can get a job on the inside, get access to a control room, flip a switch, which causes an electric power grid to short circuit, causes a pipeline to explode.”

So this means someone can hack into Nuclear Power plant computers and start a meltdown, or poison the water supply, or destroy power grids that would turn off our TVs, I mean, cripple our infrastructure and cause massive destruction.

Feeling safe again, are we? You were fine until I scared you with this Crap. Does that make me a terrorist?

NFL Sued:

75 former players got together and sued the NFL today for intentionally failing to disclose the harmful effects of concussions for more than 90 years. They suit claims that the league knew as far back as the 1920s that concussions led to some bad shit. In 1994 the league commissioned a study on the harmful effects, but then published a report in 2004 that there was “no evidence of worsening injury or chronic cumulative effects”. It wasn’t until last June that they finally admitted that multiple concussions can lead to dementia, memory loss, Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), and an overall shitty life.

The suit seeks unspecified damages, and it will be interesting to see how this turns out. There’s no chance the NFL will let this go to trial, and have the embarrassing crap come out in the press, so they’er going to settle, set up a foundation or two, and hopefully finally take care of their Veterans the way they should.

 I couldn’t help but see among the names Dolphin legend, Mark Super Duper. Not for nothing, maybe you should take the guy who did a ton of coke off the plaintiff’s list.

Hamad’s Sandbox

Abu Dhabi — When you’re a member of a royal Kingdom that sits on one of the richest oil deposit of the world, you tend to have a shitload of money and a fuckload of time. Sheikh Hamad bin Hamdan Al Nahyan put both to good use for his Kingdom, and made himself the world’s wealthiest graffiti Tagger.

The 65 year old Hamad carved his name carved into the sand, and the five letters span two miles across and  one mile wide, so now he ould always find his resort island of Al Futasi…from Outer Space!

Of course I have to ask, its the United Arab Emirates, why not spell your name in Arabic?

Damn you Hamad, why do you always have to one-up me?

Rusty’s Vacation

There’s going to be another Griswold family Vacation, but just like every other franchise, its getting a re-boot. The next Vacation will not focus on Clark W and his crew, but rather his son Rusty.

Purists might cry that a Griswold movie has to be about Sparky, but have you seen Chevy Chase recently? The man is a shell of himself, could never carry a movie these days and instead plays the annoying character in everything he’s in. This is an exciting step up for Russ as the character was so inconsequential it never matter who played him, how old he was, or what color his hair might have been.

Either way, I know Flam and Salner already booked their tickets for this Vacation.

Great White WTF!

Mossel Bay — All was quiet on the research boat Cheetah, until one crewman chummed the waters a little too well. A splash was heard, and team leader Dorian Schroder saw “a Great White breach out of the water from one side of the boat hovering, literally, over a crew member chumming on the port side,” then fall halfway onto the damn boat. Trying to get free, the shark instead thrashed until it trapped itself completely aboard the boat. Holy Crap.

After what I’m sure was a collective period of pants-shitting, the scientists realized they had to get the shark OFF the boat, but couldn’t budge the thing. A neighboring boat tried to drag it off by tying ropes around it, but the damn thing was too big. The boat was eventually brought to shore, and a crane had to lift the shark and return it to the ocean. The ordeal wasn’t over yet as the disoriented shark lost its way, and beached itself. Boats then dragged the shark a safe distance out to sea where it finally caught its bearings and swam home to tell his wife before she accused him of sleeping around.

The crew then took hours to clean up the urine-filled deck.
