John McAfee, the innovator whose name is synonymous with antivirus software, died by suicide on Wednesday hours after a court approved his extradition from Spain to face U.S. tax evasion charges.
Shamed he was taxed to death. Guess it proves the old adage that the only thing certain in life is death and taxes.

Money Madness: $50 billion mistakenly deposited into Baton Rouge family’s bank account

... his wife called him frantic, telling him to have a seat before showing him that $50 billion dollars had been deposited in their account.

“It was crazy just to see what it looks like because I’ve never seem that many zeros in my life,” said James.

After noticing the money, he called his bank hoping to find out how it got there.

Classic US Muscle Car Goes Electric and Smokes World Record, Pro Driver Challenges Elon Musk to a Race
First, he covered a quarter-mile in 8.26 seconds, hitting 167 mph — and all without the sound of a roaring engine.

Then, on his second try, Tasca lowered that to 8.12 seconds as he hit 171.97 mph.

The previous record had been 8.27 seconds at 168 mph, which had been set in September, according to The Drive.

Rare Atari game donated to Fort Worth Goodwill store sold to bidder for record amount
The item sorter came across an ultra-rare “Air Raid” game cartridge. The game was produced by Men-A-Vision in 1982 and playable on the Atari 2600 system. This particular game cartridge was especially rare because of its T-shaped design and blue coloring. Only 13 copies are known to exist, according to Goodwill.

Yes, at least that is for a wagon... For shop deliveries??

Here in more modern times, there is some scary maneuvering by articulate distribution wagons reversing through car parks to get to a delivery bay...

Also, for the modern example, the delivery wagon can be larger than the shop!

Now if I saw that sign here I'd take it as 1hr parking for medium rigid trucks. LOL

The Highways Agency found over 200 dead crows on the M4 near Bridgend, and there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu.

A Pathologist examined the remains of all the crows, and, to everyone's relief, confirmed the problem was NOT Avian Flu.

The cause of death appeared to be from vehicle impacts. However, during analysis it was noted that varying colours of paints appeared on the bird's beaks and claws.

By analysing these paint residues it was found that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact with motorbikes, while only 2% were killed by cars.

The Agency then hired an Ornithological Behaviourist to determine if there was a cause for the disproportionate percentages of motorbike kills versus car kills. The Ornithological Behaviourist quickly concluded that when crows eat road kill, they always have a look-out crow to warn of danger.

They discovered that while all the lookout crows could shout "Cah", not a single one could shout "bike".

When will people learn that taking selfies is dangerous.

India’s Amer Fort in Jaipur hit by lightning bolt that kills at least 18 people.

India will give compensation after 18 people were killed while taking storm selfies when a popular tourist attraction was hit by lightning.
But 1 must question the reason behind compensation being given out.

Cheers.
