Own a piece of The (virtual) rock?

Clipart of a rock just sold for 400 ether, or about $1.3 million, late Monday afternoon.

The transaction marks the latest sale of EtherRock, a brand of crypto collectible that’s been around since 2017 – making it one of the oldest non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on the block.

Bad guy picks the wrong place to run into...
After Running Into Restaurant Full Of Cops, Man Wanted In North Center Shooting Charged With Attempted Murder
“The guy ran in when there were several cops in the restaurant having lunch,” said Garcia’s manager Braulio Garcia. “It was a table of seven and they all just got up, started chasing him."

Watching the news about a fatal shooting. A man tries to mug a couple. He walks up to them and pulls a gun tries to rob them. The couple he has stopped has other ideas. The man pulls his own gun and fatally shoots the mugger.

It happens in the US more often than you think.

July 20 LA
June 15 Oakland.
Aug 23 Oaklahoma

These are what I found with a very quick search.
It's estimated that there are 1.2 guns per person in the US. We are a nation with too many cowboys that grew up watching John Wayne and Silvester Stallone. I have always said that shows like the "A-Team" that show everyone shooting everyone else without anyone getting hurt would lead to ignorant senseless violence. If we can't regulate guns then we should regulate TV shows.
Winning on my little gun-free island. Well until duck season it mostly is.

As Rodney Dangerfield might of quipped:
"Finally, older tech workers get some respect. "

"Old" developers are in demand at this tech company. You'll never believe the job post

Time to get your dancing shoes & Disco clothes out of the mothball storage they have been for the last 40 years.

Beautifully brilliant.

And a little something to completely undo the unhealthy greedy nastiness of Marketing against individual people and society in general...


Enjoy?

The younger kids and I had to spend an agonising 14 months watching my missus, their mum, waste away as a mind locked in a shell after several strokes and I hope that Michael Schumacher’s family isn't prolonging something just for the sake of their, ‘Private is private’, motto.

Why the truth about Michael Schumacher's health can never be told.

The missus and I made a pact that if we could we wouldn't let the other go through that, but sadly all I could do was to authorise the turning off of the respirator and that decision was made with the kids' approval.
