    Sometimes, the solution is a problem in of itself:
    According to the Russian government-funded news site RT, the incident took place in the Russian city of Samara, about 660 miles east of Moscow. The man was driving a BMW X6 when smoke began pouring out from under the hood. At some point he enlists help from the driver of the septic truck, who positions a hose to douse the red-hot hood and, later, the exposed engine bay itself, in a torrent of thick, disgusting sludge. Imagine the smell! (Or better yet, don’t.)

    There were apparently no injuries, but the fate of the burned and feces-coated X6 is unclear. Video of the incident had around 43,000 shares on Facebook alone, and nearly 7,000 comments. Many of them on the news feed of one user who shared it were variations on questioning why the man didn’t just let the car burn.

    Really looking for the gone right in this one. I actually build those things (X6 not septic truck) and while the odds are pretty high a Russian asshole was driving it that is pretty shitty. I guess the thing didn't actually catch on fire is the gone right.

    Australia - Even The Seaweed Wants You Dead:
    A woman running on a Gold Coast beach has been rescued after becoming stuck in masses of cornflake seaweed that has piled up thigh-deep in places.

    A seaweed expert, Pia Winberg, said the bloom of Colpomenia – also known as sea potatoes, oyster thief or cornflake seaweed – was not unusual for this time of year.

    But its scale, the marine biologist said, was unprecedented. “We have not seen bigger blooms than the one you’ve got on the Gold Coast at the moment,” she said.

    Videos posted on social media on Wednesday showed tourists, locals and an excited dog playing in the seaweed.

    A passerby came to the aid of one local runner after she became stuck in thick seaweed that had washed up at Palm Beach.

    Seriously, where's the gone right? The massive seaweed blooms around the world including the Sargassum belt that stretches across the entire Atlantic are signs of screwed up oceanic chemistries (the super-high and growing levels of CO2 for starters). It's another snowpile in the growing avalanche of our total biosphere collapse via climate catastrophe.

    I may have an answer, but it depends on a question: Is this type of seaweed edible?

    Generally no. Most climate change related blooms (algae, plankton, jellyfish, whatever) are nasty stuff that's normally kept under control because more complex life easily outcompetes it for resources, but that more complex life requires a better balance of inputs, where the nasty stuff can thrive with a couple otherwise key nutrients missing or in oxygen starved water or in extreme temperatures.


    A very simplified example is what happens in a planted aquarium. Add all the nutrients but don't add a carbon source and the plants do poorly but all kinds of damaging algae takes over because it doesn't require as much CO2 or can utilize unusual carbon sources. However, keep a plant-available carbon source and the plants thrive and deplete the other nutrients faster than algae can grow. It's less about excess and more about imbalance.

    Florida woman buys baby bouncer, gets a gun instead
    She found a Baby Einstein's bouncer that was unopened and appeared to be brand new for about NZ$14.
    Inside the box sat a semi-automatic rifle.

    This wasn't the original article, it seems to be getting more traction in other countries than here because it's being used as an absurd example of American gun culture that a gun was A. Stored in a baby you box, B. Donated unnoticed, C. And the recipient was excited to get it.

    To be able to assemble the rifle from that state takes some tools and a vice clamp IIRC barring some sort of really specialized non-standard parts.

    If the rifle had been broken down into the upper and lower portions as can be done with just a hammer and a punch the upper portion might barely fit into the box on a diagonal since the stock is attached to the lower. It still would have taken some assembly though.

    Jellyfish are often edible, they just aren't on Western menus or even most Asian ones. There have been some calls to change that to help put a dent in the blooms but it hasn't happened yet obviously. Unlike something like snakehead fish though, there are established preparations for the creatures (and Aristotle mentioned a soup with them that was consumed in the winter). A cold appetizer made from the bodies sliced thin and the arms mixed with garlic and some other stuff was a favorite of my family when eating at some Chinese restaurants. This is a more seasoned version of that style of dish.

    "Our products make your baby smarter" is literally their entire brand. It's why they are called Baby Einstein. That was their whole schtick. They've branched out into a general baby product/toy company over the years it seems but you can still see a lot of that kind of design in all their products.

    It just turned out that their products were often actually detrimental to good childhood development. Because children just shouldn't be watching TV at all.

    Does the tribe not trust White Dog's judgement on whether people outside the tribe should get to possess it?

    It was “gifted” to a US Cavalryman while White Dog was a captor in the 1860s. White Dog was subsequently “executed” (i.e. murdered by the state) along with several other Native leaders.

    Which is shitty in general, but the pipe itself was created in prison and the article implies that it was created with the intent of being given away rather than being kept for personal use. I can't see any kind of claim of ownership there. If you have a source that claims otherwise, I will immediately believe it without question.

    The point is, it’s a relic of a culture that holds high historical significance to the descendants of that culture.

    It shouldn’t be kept by some random white dude just because their great great great grandfather was a pony soldier.

    And we can’t really know what White Dog’s intentions were in creating the pipe, because all we have to go on is the word of one of his kidnapper-murderers.

    I'll admit that I'm arguing from a position of having incomplete information. Time for a bit of research.

    edit: Looks like there is existing documentation supporting that the pipe was stolen, egregiously enough that the thief had to give it up afterwards. Yeah, that'd definitely qualify as something that should have been returned long ago.

    Like even if the story that White Dog gifted it to the soldier as a gesture of peace is correct, I’d argue that it’s superseded by the subsequent murder of White Dog and his fellow prisoners.

    Meet the criminal turducken: a meth lab in a rehab clinic in a former brothel:
    A year later, its doors are shuttered once again — this time by police crime scene tape, in the wake of detectives uncovering an alleged meth lab during a raid on the premises yesterday.

    Two men aged, 56 and 61, appeared in court today charged with drug and weapons offences. A 52-year-old woman was released and is expected to be charged on summons.

    When the Wellbeing Planet opened its doors as a drug rehabilitation clinic last year, nearby residents were invited in to take a look — and were stunned to find little had changed other than the name.

    Except the riffle is clearly assembled in the woman's picture. That answer just brings up more questions. How far along the assembly of the riffle did she get before she realized it wasn't a baby bouncer after all? How weird is the assembly instruction leaflet that came with this thing that it could make sense for both a bouncer and a riffle?

    Her husband immediately got excited and yelled, "You got me a gun!" upon seeing it. They knew what it was right away and at least one person in the room thought it was awesome and not at all unusual for a baby shower gift.
