This is pretty scary.
 
Unbelievable. #infosec folks have been warning against this for YEARS. They said: separate infotainment from steering/breaks etc. Do not implement wireless control over this. Have good security measures. This can kill people. It can turn cars into weapons.

And here is a car you can control over the internet - COMPLETELY. From CD player to brakes - thousands of Jeeps can be turned into remote murder weapons, for both the people in them and those around them.

EVERY Jeep Cherokee should be immediately grounded. And let them pay a 500 million fine - just to ensure no car maker tries to save 5 bucks on a 50K car by not separating driving from the fscking entertainment system!!!

Or are we going to wait until a few people are killed? Or for a cyber war where cars are used to take down bridges by driving into them?

Finally a believable account about a visit to heaven.
NEW YORK—Speaking for the first time since waking from a medically induced coma following a devastating car accident, 8-year-old Aiden Miller recounted an extremely vivid near-death experience Friday that reportedly contained detailed descriptions of heaven, angels, and a six-figure book deal.

This is the point. I don't know why people buy bottled water. Tap water is perfectly fine. In CA at least, there are drinking fountains at every corner. Bottled water is often worse than tap water.

'Unfortunately, Brown’s out-of-touch comments didn’t end there. In the same interview, he went so far as to blame consumers for Nestle’s practices, at one point stating, “If I stop bottling water tomorrow, people would buy another brand of bottled water...It’s driven by consumer demand, it’s driven by an on-the-go society that needs to hydrate.” Apparently he’s never heard of a re-usable water bottle.'
Nestle’s CEO has doubled down on his company’s irresponsible water profiteering in drought-stricken California, blaming consumers and stating that he wishes Nestle could bottle even MORE water. Tell Nestle to end the spin and profiteering.

This needs more stars:

Issue 82: Support Wi-Fi ad hoc networking

There are countless use cases for this, and it would be so simple to implement. And iphones can do it, which is just embarrassing.

Another mass shooting, another round of arguments about why gun reform is doomed to fail. Turns out, most of those arguments don’t hold up to scrutiny

While the state’s drought-induced sinking is well known, new details highlight just how severe it has become and how little the government has done to monitor it.
