"compilation for all of 2019"

Good to see that we caught a lot of that! The helicopter part was cool. So was that guy walking around pretty locations in a space suit like Interstellar :D

..
"the hit & run guy should've added who got charged & w/ what"

Yeah, definitely! I went on a very long Google search to track down anything at all about that accident, but I couldn't find a single thing outside of that video. A comment points out that it was at the corner of Canoga Ave. & W Oxnard St. in Los Angeles, but that's the only piece of reliable info. Another comment says, "lol at the guy in the silver truck being an off duty LA county sheriff's deputy... [/] He was preventing the driver from leaving. the lying white girl was charged with falsifying information and obstruction of justice. la county times 4 days ago..." but I can't find any L.A. Times story from 2017 that mentions the accident or has any keywords like that, which makes me think that that person was just playing the misinformation game.

Reddit picked up the crash video in several different threads, but none link to a news article, and no accident-reporting sites list anything like that in that area in 2017... the plates of the truck and SUV were reported on driver sites, but they just point back to the video. All very strange, since a multi-hit hit-and-run with video, an arrest, and an overturned semi seems like it would make the news.

But, while searching I came across a 2018 update for that 2017 story where an L.A. motorcyclist kicks a car, the car driver tries to hit him, and causes a big accident:
http://abc...by-apparent-road-rage/3164409/
"Andrew Flanigan, 45, of Arleta, was booked on $110,000 bail on three felony charges: assault with a deadly weapon, reckless driving and hit-and-run, officials said ... CHP investigators and the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office determined he had been most responsible for the crash."

Not sure if you saw the UP thread, but I was arguing that the motorcyclist was less at fault than the Nissan driver... but it looks like they really threw charges at him. I couldn't find anything about the Nissan driver being charged, so yeah... the motorcyclist really screwed himself by fleeing the accident afterwards. Police probably believed whatever the Nissan driver told them, which left the motorcyclist at fault when they finally caught up to him. He *really* should have stuck around :p

This cat was named #FatCatHarvey on Instagram. The Instagram owner claims that Harvey was found after a flood, over-fed by temporary families, and then recovered by her and put on a diet. I'd quote that directly, but the Instagram person wrote it in first-person from the perspective of a cat, so it's pretty annoying ;D

the reindeer slippers make it extra weird :p

speaking of extra weird, Florida:

MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. – A man who broke into a Florida home on Christmas Eve said he was “there to suck toes” then tried to grab the victim’s genitals as the two fought, according to a report from the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said the victim awoke to a stranger sucking on his toes so he asked the man what he was doing and the culprit said he “was there to suck toes.”

The victim punched the suspect in the mouth and forced him out of the bedroom and into the yard, at which point the burglar said he had a gun and he attempted to fondle the victim’s genitals, according to an incident report.

No weapon was displayed.

Deputies said that once the two were outside, the victim hit the suspect in the face for about 30 seconds before running inside to call 911.

The suspect then punched out a front window of the house and stomped the victim’s windshield until it broke, according to an incident report.

A search was conducted but the culprit was not located.

Deputies said they collected DNA evidence from the scene.

2 Children Shot By Driver After Throwing Snowballs At Passing Cars

Two children, ages 12 and 13, are recovering after they were shot by the driver of a vehicle they had pelted with snowballs, police in Wisconsin said.

The kids were part of a group tossing snowballs at cars in Milwaukee on Saturday night when they became the targets of the violent road rage attack, police said in a series of tweets.

“It was like ‘boom, boom, boom, boom’ all in succession,” Pearlee Piggue, who heard the shooting just before 8 p.m., told local station WITI.

Milwaukee police described the shooter as driving a white Toyota. Both of the victims suffered non-life-threatening gunshot wounds, police said.

2nd video: cop camera, sorta interesting too

http://www.liveleak.com/view?t=9mwUB_1578364211
(don't miss 2:08 in 1st)

cops seem to always shout 'drop the gun' while starting the trigger pull

old guy appears to raise his arms right before shot which could be perceived as threatening so not blaming cop really here, just seems odd how often there's no time for a person to actually comply between order & shot... like are they taught to shout it as part of their firing sequence? if you go to a cop target practice, do they all shout 'drop the gun' as firing? :p

"Pearlee Piggue?"

That's one of those names peeps get when their parents don't read very well and just sound out words or say semi-indecipherable things to the nurse for the birth certificate ;D

Very weird road rage situation... even if the kids were lying about throwing snow and were actually throwing blocks of ice.. that's... just not good judgment. The video looks like a residential area, so I can't imagine the shooter avoiding arrest for long (if a local).

..
"cops seem to always shout 'drop the gun' while starting the trigger pull"

Not much time there between command and shot, yeah! He could have paused for just a fraction of a second longer and saved a round. If he couldn't see that the handgun was pointed to the side in surrender (as visible in the first video), then he probably couldn't see enough to make a good "shoot" call... He does get points for only firing one shot ;p .. and since that old man was actively shooting, I wouldn't blame the officer (much?) either — he's at least *comparatively* better, and the old man survived (one story says that the bullet went through his coat but didn't actually hit him), so can't argue much with a good outcome :D

..
"just seems odd how often there's no time for a person to actually comply between order & shot... like are they taught to shout it as part of their firing sequence? if you go to a cop target practice, do they all shout 'drop the gun' as firing? :p"

I hope no one trains like that, but I could see peeps doing it — almost like that "It's coming right for us!" South Park thing yet again ;D
In more competent training, distinct evaluations *should*
happen at each step.. like (for pistols):
1- interview stance when there's no threat but you have to interact with people (hands grasped in front, above duty belt)
2- hand on or near sidearm (still holstered) if something seems off or you need to be slightly more prepared
3- weapon drawn but pointed at the ground ("'alert' to the dirt") if danger exists but no target is visible/clear (also an option if trying not to further provoke)
4- weapon drawn, near/at eye-line, and pointed at target ("'Ready' to kill")

And 3 and 4 divide into further criteria.. like:
- finger straight and off the trigger until ready to fire
- weapon on safe until intent on firing (though, most officers carry Glocks instead of Berettas now, and Glocks do not have external safeties.. which puts more pressure on other safety rules..)

And, most topically, with good training: *reevaluate*! After pointing a weapon at someone, reevaluate (did the person just realize things got serious, so now that person is complying?), and that requires mentally pausing. Same thing with commands: after giving a command, pause, and see if it works (reevaluate). Was the command clear? Did it just freak the person out and now they can't think? If the command freaked the person out, calm the person down in subsequent commands — help them correctly comply. And, like in this video, the difference between someone pulling a weapon to point it at someone and raising hands to surrender can be very similar, so: create space for more evaluation. Like, the officer ran past a brick corner. That would have been a good spot to pause, give commands, and have cover if the old man *had* pointed the pistol at him. Or, just take a mini-second to watch the barrel of the pistol and see where it's pointed (or will point). That second one sounds super dangerous, but with good training that extra split second can mean not making a bad shot while still being prepared to make a good one.

But, back to current reality, this officer had a lot more control than typical offices. He knew to keep pressure on because the shooting was still happening (possible victims), and after firing one shot he clearly paused to see what he needed to do next. Then he transitioned from lethal to nonlethal to make an arrest. Really wish this was more common instead of those execution videos :(

==========================

more Florida:

Joanne Mercader, 59, was arrested and charged with battery on a person 65 or older after she threw a bucket of human feces on her landlord, according to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies responded to a trailer in Osteen, near Deltona in Central Florida, around 5:15 p.m. Saturday where they found a woman dripping in human waste and Mercader with caked feces on her face, the agency says.

Mercader originally claimed to be the victim, initially telling deputies that her landlord had tossed the bucket of feces onto her “as a method of eviction,” the incident report says.

“My landlord just broke into my house and assaulted me,” Mercader said, according to the body cam footage.

When asked why she had dried feces smeared across her cheeks, she attempted to explain her appearance.

“She took the poop and rubbed it all over [my face],” Mercader said.

Deputies, however, were confused, especially after she admitted that this was part of her ongoing dispute with the landlord.

“In a long time that I’ve been doing this job, I’ve never seen anything like it, okay?” the deputy replied. “I’m not disputing what you’re telling me but... she’s dripping with it, soaking wet. [Yours] is not.”

Mercader later confessed to accidentally throwing the bucket at the landlord “as soon as she entered the residence,” according to the report. The toss, however, wasn’t the accident — it was the contents.

“Joanne claimed she intended to use a bucket of water but got the two buckets confused,” the deputy wrote.

================

moral: always clearly label your poop bucket!

"“Joanne claimed she intended to use a bucket of water but got the two buckets confused,” the deputy wrote."

I'm grossed out and laughing at Florida at the same time ;p
Sooo much wrong with that story, wow D: ... Like, that has to be a crackhead type lie at the end there, and did she get poop on her own face somehow? And being willing to throw poop at someone in the first place... D:
..In Googling, it looks like that can be charged as a felony because of the biological/disease component, but maybe only in prisons ("Gassing" wiki page only mentions prison)? This Montana page on "assault with bodily fluid" looks like it's just trying to protect police, prison guards, and first responders from poop attacks — random attacks like Florida woman's may just be a fine and jail time ( http://leg.mt.gov/bills/mca/45/5/45-5-214.htm ). Seems like a slap on the wrist ;)

Seems kind of useful when they mention how cuttlefish have differently organized brains. The linked source article talks about how cuttlefish and vertebrates have similar eyes (though those lucky cuttlefish have no retinal blind spot) but different methods of vision processing ( http://advances.sciencemag.org/content/6/2/eaay6036.full ). And it ends with their next goal: "uncover the neural mechanisms underlying the computation of stereopsis in these animals." So step 1 for them was to show that cuttlefish have chameleon-like vision processing, and step 2 would be to track down the processing pathway (where the visual information gets sent, combined, and processed and "how").

Aaaaand I went on a Google rampage...:
Another paper has a good charting out of that info already.. at least at the gross level (page 83 and 84, 2005 paper, http://www.researchgate.net/publication/236005453_Behavioural_plasticity_and_neural_correlates_in_adult_cuttlefish ). I thought there were some easy human analogs, but it gets weird. The cuttlefish paper's question of stereopsis processing in cuttlefish (superior frontal and subvertical lobes?) would analog to the human lateral geniculate nucleus and striate cortex (places where information from each eye is brought together and reconciled). In humans, the thinking now is that each eye has ocular dominance columns in the striate cortex ("columns" where one eye's info gets slightly separated from the other eye's "column"/info and have shared, non-dominant, info in-between them); and binocular neurons ("far cells", "near cells", and "tuned zero") individually respond to similarities/differences between the eyes, and depending on how active one neuron is over another, differences/similarities between the eyes can be understood as distance and orientation (i.e., 3D images).

So.. if they can see how the same processing gets done in cuttlefish (same mechanism?), peeps can then either answer questions about how that info gets sorted in humans or build an android that has all the perks of cuttlefish and human vision without the weaknesses ;D
.. Or, like most scientists, they picked a research area and don't know if any of the work will ever actually pay off in any kind of relevant/helpful way — but it's interesting anyways ;D

Burger King Continues to Cross the Line

Burger King is airing a commercial that uses profanity to advertise its Impossible Whopper – a burger made from plants instead of beef.

The language in the commercial is offensive, and it’s sad that this once family restaurant has made yet another deliberate decision to produce a controversial advertisement instead of a wholesome one.

In the Burger King commercial that is currently airing on TV, customers’ responses are being videoed as they taste-test the Impossible Whopper. One man is completely shocked that the burger is not beef, so he uses the d-word to describe how he feels about himself for being deceived by the taste of the burger.

One Million Moms finds this highly inappropriate. When responding to the taste test, he didn’t have to curse. Or if, in fact, it was a real and unscripted interview in which the man was not an actor, then Burger King could have simply chosen to edit the profanity out of the commercial.

Burger King’s Impossible Whopper ad is irresponsible and tasteless. It is extremely destructive and damaging to impressionable children viewing the commercial. We all know children repeat what they hear.

This ad is airing during prime time, when families are likely watching. Burger King should be more responsible in its marketing decisions. Let the fast-food restaurant know that as a parent and a customer you are disgusted by its recent marketing choices.

Burger King needs to know parents do not approve!

Take Action

If you agree that this marketing effort is inappropriate, please sign our petition urging Burger King to cancel this Impossible Whopper commercial or, at the very least, edit out the cuss word immediately.

i watched the ad trying to figure out how 'dicks' would come up... it didn't...

"damn, that's good" is the destructive tasteless d-word

Burt Ward Of ‘Batman’ Says He Took Pills To Shrink Private Parts

Burt Ward, who played sidekick Robin on TV’s “Batman” in the 1960s, said in an interview with the New York Post’s Page Six that his bulge was stealing scenes to the point where he was asked to visit a doctor for shrinking pills.

Ward told Page Six that the dynamic duo’s tight-fitting costumes drew ire from the Catholic League of Decency.

“They thought that Robin had a very large bulge for television,” Ward said.

He claimed that ABC executives asked him to reduce the protuberance by going to a doctor for medication “to shrink me up.”

Ward did as he was told but quickly had reservations.

“I took them for three days and then I decided that they can probably keep me from having children,” he said. “I stopped doing that and I just used my cape to cover it.”

A Kansas man has asked an Iowa court to grant his motion for trial by combat so he can meet his ex-wife and her attorney "on the field of battle where (he) will rend their souls from their corporal bodies."

David Ostrom, 40, of Paola, Kansas, claims in court documents that his ex-wife, Bridgette Ostrom, 38, of Harlan, has "destroyed (him) legally."

He asked the Iowa District Court in Shelby County to give him 12 weeks "lead time" in order to source or forge katana and wakizashi swords, as first reported by the Carroll Times Herald.

"To this day, trial by combat has never been explicitly banned or restricted as a right in these United States," Ostrom argues in court records, adding that it was used "as recently as 1818 in British Court."

When reached by phone Monday, Ostrom told the Des Moines Register that he got the idea after learning about a 2016 case in which New York Supreme Court Justice Philip Minardo acknowledged that duels had not been abolished.

Ostrom said the motion stemmed from his frustrations with his ex-wife's attorney, Matthew Hudson of Harlan.

"I think I've met Mr. Hudson's absurdity with my own absurdity," he said.

Ostrom, who said he plans to request the same mediation tactic for any other disputes that may arise in court, added that his ex-wife can choose her attorney as a "champion," or stand-in fighter.

Hudson filed a resistance to the trial by combat motion by first correcting Ostrom's spelling.

"Surely (Ostrom) meant 'corporeal' bodies which Merriam Webster defines as having, consisting of, or relating to, a physical material body," the attorney wrote. "Although (Ostrom) and potential combatant do have souls to be rended, they respectfully request that the court not order this done."

Hudson argued that because a duel could end in death, such ramifications likely outweigh those of property tax and custody issues.

"It should be noted that just because the U.S. and Iowa constitutions do not specifically prohibit battling another person with a deadly katana sword, it does prohibit a court sitting in equity from ordering same," Hudson wrote.

Hudson asked the court to suspend Ostrom's visitation rights and order him to undergo a court-ordered psychological evaluation.

Ostrom later admitted to the misspelling, but argued he has no history of mental issues.

Historically, he said in court records, trial by combat was not always won by way of death, but also when a party "cries craven," yielding to the other.

"Respondent and counsel have proven themselves to be cravens by refusing to answer the call to battle, thus they should lose this motion by default," Ostrom wrote, adding that if the other party decided otherwise, he wants to proceed with a "blunted practice style" of sword play.

The court has not yet ruled on either party's motions. Hudson was not immediately available for comment.

Ostrom, who said he doesn't have any experience with sword fighting, doesn't anticipate the judge will let his request go forward, but he wants an answer anyway.

When asked if he were serious about the dueling offer, Ostrom said, "If Mr. Hudson is willing to do it, I will meet him. I don't think he has the guts to do it."

A Florida woman is facing charges after she went to a Walmart in Tampa, got items from the shelves and started making an explosive device inside the store, authorities said.

Then the woman, Emily Stallard, 37, tried to detonate it in the store Saturday, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said in a statement Tuesday.

"A security guard with Walmart noticed the woman ... roaming the aisles of the store and opening unpaid items. The items included flammable materials, projectiles and matches," the sheriff's office said.

The security guard called the sheriff's office and also notified an off-duty Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation officer who was in the store at the time. The officer and the security guard stopped her just before she lit a wick and detained her until deputies arrived, CNN affiliate WFLA reported.

The Asahi Ryokan hotel in Fukuoka, Japan, offers its guests the opportunity to reserve a room for about $1 (€0.90) per night if they accept to be live-streamed on YouTube for 24 hours. The idea behind the cheap price of the room is "to make a hotel which is run by asking income from YouTube, not by the accommodation fee," said the owner Inoue Tetsuya.

Truck driver nearly kills cyclist in China:
http://imgur.com/gallery/E030UMh/
I thought maybe Russia at first based on the callousness of spectators, but that makes sense for China too :p

Some comments seem to think that the cyclist was holding on to the truck for free speed, but those peeps must have missed that the cyclist was only holding onto the truck after being hit by it (visible in the slo-mo and this slightly longer gif http://i.imgur.com/Jkt8iYs.mp4 ). Another person thinks that the cyclist was riding too close to the truck, but that misses that the cyclist was being overtaken (i.e., the truck driver was the one passing too close). The idiot that said that ("LordBreadOfHannover") said lots of wrong stuff, but he bounced off of a partial truth ("The cyclist, if he wanted to use the road like a car, should have been in the lane and not on the side of it."), the filtered version being: sometimes it can be good for cyclists to take the primary position (center of the lane) when people who pass may put the cyclist's safety in danger. Like, if people keep close-passing, it can be good to take center-lane so that they have to completely exit the lane to pass.. primary position also means higher visibility... then again, it can lead to road rage by passing drivers who think cyclists should be on the side/sidewalk, especially on a busy two-way two-lane (one lane in each direction) road that has no shoulder...

Arg... I started a project in July 2017 to make little info-graphics and visual aids to show Imgurians these situations, but it looks like yet another thing I started and abandoned :/
I *really* need to make a point of going through my project to-do list..

apparently he was up to other stuff:

===============

A dentist recorded working on a patient while on a hoverboard was found guilty of Medicaid fraud and endangering patients Friday.

Anchorage Superior Court Judge Michael Wolverton found Dr. Seth Lookhart guilty on 46 counts.

Lookhart was found to have pushed patients to have needless procedures under IV sedation so he could charge Medicaid for the services.

One employee of Lookhart testified patients were often under sedation for three hours for a procedure that was supposed to take only an hour.

According to an information document filed in the case, IV sedation is the most costly form of anesthesia billed to Medicaid.

During the trial, former patients testified to having pain and distress over botched dental work performed by Lookhart. One patient testified that the dentist removed four healthy teeth.

In a 25-second video, Lookhart is seen working on a patient while on a hoverboard, then hovering down a hallway and tossing his gloves behind him before turning around and smiling for the camera.

Lookhart's sentencing is scheduled for Thursday, April 30.

"no way in hell i'd do that circle to circle swim... even if that board helped visibility... i'm sure i'd get lost somehow :p"

Very dangerous move, yeah. I suppose he knows the area well enough so maybe he knows that there isn't a current to push him off course, and the ice there looks thin enough that maybe he could break it if needed... but still... I wouldn't try it either.. at least not without an emergency plan (oxygen canister, rope, or something) :p

..
So.. even knowing about gig workers for businesses like Amazon and Uber building reputations for stealing (e.g., that video I posted here before of an Amazon worker taking a picture of a "delivered" package before just taking it), I still gave GrubHub a shot yesterday, and it didn't go well.

They have a little GPS tracker that shows exactly where the driver is... The driver picked up the food from a local restaurant, drove it to where I was (all visible on the map).. so I went outside to meet the driver so he wouldn't have to wait for me.. but when I went outside I got to see him making a u-turn without stopping (it even looked like he was edging towards the curb to activate a GPS confirmation), and the map updated to say, "Delivered." So.. he just outright stole the food. I reported it, but they don't even give a full refund, just a credit for less than was paid and which can only be spent on GrubHub (like I'd take that risk again). Their rep said that the driver attempted to call me.. but nope. No calls received, and I had cell service.

Looking into it, this was an exact M.O. for driver thieves. I found this article about UberEats that describes nearly the same thing:
http://www...rs-might-be-stealing-your-food
The driver incentive is..
- Free food
- Payment for pickup and "drop off"
- tip (which I wish I hadn't paid in advance, since I tipped the maximum)
..and they just tell GrubHub that they waited "8 minutes" (which is just the minimum time that they have to say to justify non-delivery) and that they attempted contact. I can't find info on how many times a driver can get complaints before the service drops them.

Anyways.. so that's more realities of gig jobs. People can just take the job for some quick money, steal some stuff, and move on to another gig job. Companies think they'll save money on employees, but they end up attracting thieves.

If these companies don't take steps to prevent theft, then yeah, it's a thief's paradise :D

I was thinking of some obvious fixes for this kind of theft:
- GPS monitor the driver's position to verify that the driver *actually* waited at the location for 8 minutes (since otherwise they can just *say* that they waited).
- Have driver take a standing selfie with the food at the delivery location's entry (only for record keeping or to resolve issues, not for social media or anything), that way they can't do a drive-by theft..
- If there's a complaint, have the driver take a screen shot of their outgoing calls to prove that attempts were made to contact the customer... This can be faked, but most people don't have fast enough PhotoShop skills while mobile.. it also might be a privacy violation, so I don't think it would get past the lawyers :/

If I were super well-funded like that glitter bomb package thief YouTuber, I'd be tempted to set up sting operations to catch these people in the act ;D

Dad Says Philadelphia Flyers’ Mascot Gritty Punched His Son At A Game

Chris Greenwell said he brought his 13-year-old son to a Flyers game in November so he could meet Gritty, the team’s popular orange-fuzzed, crazy-eyed mascot. But the photo op for Brandon Greenwell with Gritty turned out to be a painful experience for the boy Brandon thanks to an alleged attack by the mascot, the father told The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Chris Greenwell said that after the photo, his son playfully patted Gritty on the head. Then, as Brandon walked away, his dad said Gritty “took a running start,” and “punched my son as hard as he could” in the back.

Philadelphia Police told CBS Philadelphia that the incident is under investigation. A Flyers team official, meanwhile, disputes that any assault took place.

..I admit that I didn't clear my roof of snow for a few months of my first snow driving — I'd just use entrance ramp acceleration to clear it off.. lol.. bad idea by my current standards :p .. I did that until someone at work mentioned that police can cite drivers for snowy roofs. If there's not a specific law about clearing snow from the roof, they can call it littering, obstruction of view, or even an improperly secured load (proof that if they want to charge you for something, they'll find a law?).

"although they appear to not have addressed it as soon as they could have"
That's the real issue here. In the video, it looks like they were stopped at that light for at least a few seconds with the snow sitting there... That's probably a good time to get out and address the snow (maybe put hazards on so others caught behind understand?), but they tried to take blindly a turn instead. :/
