Y’know how in Hollywood movies and tv shows where some goober pounds randomly on a keyboard and somehow they produce a long string of code, or hack into a secret Government installation’s computer network? Well, that’s bunk, but don’t fret! There’s a website which allows you to mirror the skills of the greatest of Hollywood hackers. Just pound on your keyboard and long strings of code appear on demand.
I wanted to start out my journey to SDDC with a terrible scene from a terrible comic book movie best forgotten: Daredevil.
A few things to note:
1) Yes, it’s even worse than you remember.
2) This is the guy who’s playing Batman.
3) Thankfully, there’s a far superior Daredevil series on Netflix to bleach your eyes with after watching this travesty…

A reader has sent in info on an interesting camouflage shirt they procured at the Tahoe Hemp Company in Tahoe, CA. The shirt is made of 55/45 Hemp/Organic Cotton, hand-dyed by Divine Tribe in their proprietary Cannaflage pattern. The camo itself is reminiscent of digital Woodland, with cannabis leaves interspersed within the pattern. The reader claims the heavy, natural fibers allow the shirt to work well as a base layer, and although it took several washings to cut down on the scratchy texture, the shirt keeps warm when its cool, cool when its warm, and has great moisture wicking attributes.
Thanks to ‘JL’ for the tip and pics!

RE Factor has come up with a heavier duty solution for doggie play time. The Hand Grenade Dog Toy is hand sewn from 1000D Cordura and nylon webbing. It features an integrated squeeker, which all dogs love. Although it is made from a durable material, RE Factor states it’s an interactive toy for both dog and owner, and isn’t designed for the sole purpose of chewing. For additional fun, you can pair it with the Pig Sticker Dog Toy, which if you haven’t guessed, is a knife-shaped dog toy.
Made in the USA.
I debated with myself on whether I should even share this. Ultimately, I determined it’s too damn funny not to share it.
This photo of a highly motivated Peshmerga fighter and his rather interesting rifle recently hit https://www.reddit.com/r/guns/comments/2ve0p1/peshmerga_fighter_holding_what_can_only_be/. The piece de la resistance (pun intended) is definitely the M16 charging handle.

SKD Tactical is offering their own FDA approved Zombie Green latex condoms. While I’m sure they’re perfectly fine for general use, SKD notes they can also be used, for… well, just read the description on the packaging:

Leave it to ThinkGeek to come up with something like a ‘Tactical Stocking’. Made from “Heavy Duty Nylon”, the all-black tactical stocking features PALS webbing, carabiners, quick-release buckles, a top handle, a Velcro panel, bi-directional side zipper, and a small, external pouch.
If it were in some kind of Christmas-themed camo, and they lost everything but
the PALS webbing, external pouch, and the Velcro panel, I might actually want one.

If you have purchased a Red Bull energy drink product in the United States between January 1st, 2002, and October 3rd, 2014, then you likely qualify as part of two class action lawsuits currently being held against Red Bull.
As part of the ongoing settlement, a qualified consumer may claim either:
1) a $10 check
2) $15 worth of Red Bull products shipped to your chosen address at Red Bull’s expense
No proof of purchase is necessary if you decide to submit a claim form, however it must be signed under penalty of perjury, so in the most extreme of scenarios it might not hurt to have an old receipt laying around.
