‘If you’re going to steal a laptop, make sure you know who you’re dealing with — one London teenager accused of stealing a laptop during the recent London riots certainly didn’t do his homework on who he was robbing.
‘Greg Martin, an IT security specialist and former FBI and NASA employee, came home to his West Kensington apartment last Wednesday to find that his place had been ransacked and his MacBook Pro was stolen.

‘Martin, who runs a blog called InfoSecurity 2.0, was obviously the wrong person to be stealing a laptop from — he had previously installed an open source tracking software called Prey on his computer. The free software “lets you keep track of your phone or laptop at all times, and will help you find it if it ever gets lost or stolen,” the product’s website states.
‘A self-described hacker, Martin wrote on his blog:…’


Multitasking Driver Gets One-Year Ban
This idiot used 2 phones while steering at 70MPH

‘This guy is the poster boy for why cell phone usage in cars should be banned in more places.
‘According to press out of the United Kingdom, a man who was driving at 70MPH while texting on one phone and talking on the other has been banned from driving for a year.
‘Initial reports said that the driver, David Secker was apparently using his knees to steer the car, an accusation he refuted in court apparently.

‘From a BBC report: The court heard that when officers pulled Secker over, they had to wait for him to finish his phone conversation. Prosecutor Denis King said: “He was seen holding a mobile phone to his right ear and as he moved closer the officer saw he was holding another phone in his other hand as though he was texting.”…’

Sticker: “If you love Jesus, honk. If you want to be with him, keep talking on your cell phone.”

Research history and you will notice that the 2 world wars wasn’t officially announced and that both started with small invasions which is happening at present.

“We are in WWIII now. It’s already started. It’ll be up to the historians to define that moment. How it’s defined probably depends on who wins…”


The Greatest American Humorist Since Mark Twain

Combining humor with truth is a rare talent. That maybe the reason why BrasscheckTV dubbed Bill hicks as ‘The greatest American humorist since Mark Twain’. Hicks described consumerism, superficiality, mediocrity, and banality within the media and popular culture as oppressive tools of the ruling class, meant to “keep people stupid and apathetic.”
Sadly, he died young at 32 in 1994.

    Yay Prey! I downloaded it on my laptop, thanks to you, Poch. You wrote about the Canadian having his unit stolen in New York.

    Have you heard of this bumper sticker: “If you love Jesus, honk. If you want to be with him, keep talking on your cell phone.”

    I am very anti-multi-tasking. It means we do nothing well. When it comes to cars and phones, it means we’re dangerous.
