Epik CEO eventually responded to the breach of his web hosting company in a 4+ hour long live video conference, where he prayed, rebuked demons, & warned that the hacked data had been cursed and could cause hard drives to burst into flames.

Epik has provided services to alternative social media sites such as Gab and Parler and even the neo-Nazi blog the Daily Stormer, which the company says it quickly booted. The company also hosted QAlerts, a website run by a militia member which was integral in spreading the QAnon conspiracy theory.

Turkey: 'Missing' man joins search party looking for himself

A missing man in Turkey accidentally joined his own search party for hours before realising he was the person they were looking for, local media reports.

Beyhan Mutlu had been drinking with friends on Tuesday when he wandered into a forest in Bursa province.

When he failed to return, his wife and friends alerted local authorities and a search party was sent out.

Mr Mutlu, 50, then stumbled across the search party and decided to join them, NTV reported.

But when members of the search party began calling out his name, he replied: "I am here."

Outside my comfort zone.
" . . . could cause hard drives to burst into flames."
Sounds like he's still traumatized by an early version of MS Windows.

Ninja attack leaves special ops troops hunkered down in hangar.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/n...ar-sparks-ridicule/ar-AAP2Hm0?ocid=entnewsntp


"A man dressed as a ninja and armed with a sword left 26 special op military members "hunkered down in a hangar wondering where help is," records have revealed."

To be fair, 160th SOAR is an Air Force special ops unit. l don’t suppose that hand-to-hand combat and edged weapon skills are major features in their curriculum.

Kilogram of nails, screws and knives removed from man's stomach​

A Lithuanian man has had more than a kilogram of nails, screws, nuts and knives removed from his stomach by doctors, local media report.
He had been swallowing metal objects for a month after quitting alcohol, doctors said.

Some of the objects retrieved during a surgery in Klaipeda University Hospital were 10cm (4in) long, according to Lithuania's LRT public broadcaster.

(Perhaps someone spiked his drink.)

Full story here.

Maybe he was a fan of heavy metal.
His attempt to give up the booze was foiled.

He had bolted down his dinner.
The doctor had told him he needed more iron in his diet.

(I'm guessing that if he was a known criminal then the rozzers probably had his dabs on file)

I was intrigued by a newsflash stating that anti Corona protesters in Amsterdam carried a "life sized" gallows ... I mean ... like instead of a mini-sized gallows or extra-large gallows :) (see Spinal Tap)

US man sues psychic who 'promised to remove ex-girlfriend curse'

A California man is suing a psychic who he says falsely claimed she could remove a curse put on his marriage by a witch hired by his ex-girlfriend.

Mauro Restrepo said Sophia Adams promised she could save his marriage if he paid $5,100 (£3,742) to exorcise the spell, according to a fraud suit filed with the Torrance Superior Court.

Ms Adams allegedly told Mr Restrepo he and his family would be "unhappy and in danger" if the curse was not lifted.

He is now seeking $25,000 in damages.

Included among several other allegations made by Mr Restrepo are charges of negligence, civil conspiracy and both intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

Mr Restrepo said that he contacted Ms Adams after searching for psychics on Google.

By Brad YoungDigital Journalist



Why did Facebook, Whatsapp and Instagram go down yesterday?
Facebook explainedthe crash was caused by a faulty router configuration change, but former Sonning resident and spoon-bending star Uri Geller thinks otherwise.
In a series of Twitter posts the magician and TV-personality suggested that aliens were responsible for the outage.

China’s noisy ‘dancing grannies’ silenced by device that disables speakers​


https://www.theguardian.com/world/2...ies-silenced-by-device-that-disables-speakers

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The gangs, made up mostly of middle-aged and older women who went through the Cultural Revolution, take to a corner of a local park or sporting ground and dance in unison to Chinese music. Loud music.

The tradition has led to alarming standoffs, with the blaring music frequently blamed for disturbing the peace in often high-density residential areas. But many are too scared to confront the women.
