Thief Fights For Life After ‘Blowing Himself Up’ In Bungled ATM Theft

Thief Fights For Life After ‘Blowing Himself Up’ In Bungled ATM Theft

 

CCTV footage has revealed the moment a blundering thief blew himself up while trying to steal from a cash machine. The 51-year-old man has been left fighting for his life after filling the ATM machine with gas before setting it alight.

The Daily Record reported that he suffered extensive injuries to his head and face after attempting the raid at a newsagents in Clydebank in Scotland on Thursday night.

He was blasted in the face by a piece of the ATM, and the footage shows him engulfed in the flames, while moments later his accomplice is seen running away.

 

 

The man was later found unconscious by fire crews after the 11.40pm explosion blew a gaping hole in the front of the store, which activated an alarm.

 

 

Police are searching for the second man, who was seen abandoning his injured accomplice and fleeing the scene in footage obtained by the Record.

Sleuths Think They've Solved DB Cooper Case

Sleuths Think They've Solved DB Cooper Case

 

An intriguing twist in the DB Cooper hijacking case: Amateur investigators say a 1971 letter believed to have been sent to authorities by the hijacker has a code that points to his identity, reports Oregon Live. The sleuths, who are preparing a documentary, say they've deciphered a series of numbers at the bottom of the letter that prove a Vietnam vet named Robert Rackstraw of San Diego is the famous bandit. They're not providing precise details on how they arrived at the conclusion just yet, but they say the numbers, including 717171634, refer to Army units that Rackstraw served in during the war, reports the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. A former military code-breaker on the investigative team, led by documentary filmmaker Tom Colbert, is behind the apparent discovery.

Rackstraw's name has surfaced before as a suspect, and he's been coy of late on the subject. "They say that I’m him," the 73-year-old told the San Jose Mercury News last year. "If you want to believe it, believe it." Last summer, the FBI formally closed its investigation into the hijacking, in which the man dubbed Cooper parachuted out of a plane over Washington state with $200,000 in cash. Rackstraw is a former Army paratrooper, one of the many reasons Colbert's team has long focused on him. In the 1971 letter, the hijacker says he used face putty to disguise himself, which could explain why Rackstraw, who was in his 20s at the time, could have resembled the middle-aged hijacker depicted in the famous artist's sketch of Cooper.

 


Toddler Girl Is Viciously Beaten By Her Mother Because She Couldn’t Find Her Tablet [DISTURBING]

Toddler Girl Is Viciously Beaten By Her Mother Because She Couldn’t Find Her Tablet [DISTURBING]

Three children have been taken into care in Argentine after horrific footage emerged of their mother abusing one of them in their home. It shows the eldest child, a girl aged three, being lifted up by her hair and kicked in the back by her mother who accuses her of losing her tablet computer. The video was filmed by an unknown witness in their home in the city of Bahia Blanca, in the eastern Argentina province of Buenos Aires.

The video starts with the mother smacking the child repeatedly as she accuses the girl of ‘stealing’ her tablet computer. The woman is heard screaming at the tot: ‘Why don’t you remember where you left the things? ‘Give me the tablet, you had it here over the table when I arrived here. Give it to me because I will kill you.’

 

The girl starts to sob and cowers, clearly terrified, as her mother continues the abusive attack. The unnamed mother then first lifts the child by up by her hair, and then kicks her hard in the back. The video was uploaded to Facebook where it was widely shared, and social services has since reportedly stepped in.

 

The three-year-old along with her two younger siblings, have since been removed from the home by authorities and they are now under the care of social services while an investigation is launched. It is not known if the mother has been arrested or charged over the abuse.

10 Movies Based On Common Misconceptions

10 Movies Based On Common Misconceptions

 

Movies are often entertaining, but they’re not always accurate. Understandably, many filmmakers are more interested in creating dramatic, stirring films than they are in providing accurate information. After all, they’re entertainers, not educators.

Sometimes, the plot of a movie or a film’s dramatic appeal depends on a misconception. For example, a woman who normally uses only 10 percent of her mental capacity may suddenly use all her brainpower. As an instant genius able to perform marvelous feats, she is a much more intriguing character than one who lives an ordinary life.

Whether accidentally or intentionally included, misconceptions appear in a variety of films.

10 Lucy

The French science fiction film Lucy (2014) revolves around the idea that people use only 10 percent of their brains’ capacity. Lucy, portrayed by Scarlett Johansson, is a young American woman living in Taipei, Taiwan, when gangsters kidnap her and force her to serve as their drug mule. When she accidentally consumes part of the illegal substance she’s smuggling, she becomes an instant genius with amazing abilities she’s never had before.

The premise that Lucy could develop superpowers simply by employing the 90 percent of her brain that would normally go unused is based on the persistent misconception that a tenth of our potential brain power is all we typically put to use. On the National Public Radio program All Things Considered, hosted by Eric Westervelt, neuroscientist David Eagleman discussed the misconception with Morgan Freeman, who played Professor Samuel Norman in the movie.

According to Eagleman, the notion that we use only a tenth of our brains is a fallacy. In fact, we use 100 percent of our brains all the time. Ariana Anderson, a researcher with the University of California at Los Angeles, said on the show that anyone who actually used only 10 percent of his brain “would probably be declared brain-dead.”

Eagleman suspects that the myth persists because people want to believe they can greatly improve. Although it’s a misconception, the belief that 90 percent of our brainpower remains untapped is “the neural equivalent to Peter Parker becoming Spider-Man,” he said.[1]

21 Jump Street

In 21 Jump Street (2012), Officers Greg Jenko (Channing Tatum) and Morton Schmidt (Jonah Hill) arrest a suspect, but the police department is forced to release him because Jenko and Schmidt failed to read the suspect his Mirandarights. When Deputy Chief Hardy (Nick Offerman) asks them what these rights are, neither officer is able to recite them correctly.

Jenko and Schmidt obviously need training, but so does their supervisor. The suspect arrested by the officers shouldn’t have been released from custody. The law does not require arresting officers to read suspects their Miranda rights at the time of arrest. Arrestees must be notified of their Miranda rights only if two conditions are met: arrest and interrogation.[2]

 

Double Jeopardy

In Double Jeopardy (1999), Libby Parsons (Ashley Judd) has been framed for killing her husband (who’s very much alive). She receives this legal advice from a fellow inmate: Since Libby has already been convicted of murdering her husband, she can now kill him with impunity. The Constitution’s protection against double jeopardy, which prohibits a person from being tried twice for the same crime, prevents her from being held accountable for the act.

Although Libby believes this misconception, she shouldn’t have. First, her fellow inmate doesn’t have a license to practice law. Second, the jailhouse lawyer doesn’t know what she’s talking about.

Constitutional attorney and author John W. Whitehead explains the nuances of the law as it applies to Libby’s situation: “The prosecutor stated a specific time and place for the crime. If she had actually killed her husband later in the movie, it would’ve been in a different city and time, making it a different crime. Therefore, double jeopardy would not apply, and she would be accused of murder.”[3]

Rather than kill her husband, Whitehead says that Libby should give the authorities proof that her husband lives. The court would then throw out her conviction and charge her errant husband.

Flatliners

In Flatliners (1990), a group of medical students decide to “flatline” themselves to investigate what happens after death. According to the movie, someone who’s flatlined can be defibrillated.

To understand why this is a misconception, it helps to know that an asystole is the absence of ventricular contractions for a length of time surpassing that for which life can be sustained. In such a case, the electrocardiogram will show a flat line.

As science journalist Karl S. Kruszelnicki explains, the use of paddles and jumper cables won’t work unless electrical activity is already occurring within the heart. By definition, “asystole” indicates that such activity has ceased. Shocking the heart won’t work.[4]

Jaws

Photo credit: boston.com

Peter Benchley, who wrote the 1974 novel Jaws that inspired Steven Spielberg’s 1975 movie of the same title, regrets having written the best seller. At the time, he believed that man-eating rogue sharks existed, but he has since learned that they don’t.

Worse yet, his depiction of such a predator in his novel has “provided cover for people who simply wanted to go out and kill sharks under the guise of somehow making people safer,” said Simon Thorrold, a senior scientist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute.[5]

The idea of man-eating rogue sharks isn’t the only misconception on which the novel and its film adaptation are based. The book and the movie characterize great white sharks as territorial. In reality, they are not. As OCEARCH founder Chris Fischer points out, sharks don’t hunt humans and they’re constantly moving from one place to another.

 

Jurassic Park

Author Michael Crichton outlined his 1990 novel like this: “Jurassic Park is based on the premise of scientists successfully extracting dinosaur DNA from the thorax of preserved prehistoric mosquitoes, cloning it, and recreating and breeding a variety of dinosaurs to roam a for-profit theme park.”

Steven Spielberg’s 1993 film adaptation of Crichton’s novel is based on the same premise. Unfortunately, it’s unscientific, although the misconception is one that many continue to believe.[6]

A team of scientists at the University of Manchester studied insects preserved in copal, a resin from tropical trees that has not become fossilized amber yet. Although the copal samples were 60 to 10,600 years old, they contained no ancient DNA. As a result, it would be impossible to clone dinosaurs in the manner in which they were supposedly recreated in the movie.

Simply Irresistible

In the romantic comedy Simply Irresistible (1999), Nolan Traynor (Larry Gilliard Jr.) tells Amanda Shelton (Sarah Michelle Gellar) that men think about sex 238 times a day. He adds that they adjust their belts each time they do.

Later, she notices that Tom Bartlett (Sean Patrick Flanery) doesn’t wear a belt and asks him about Nolan’s claim. After considering how many hours a day he’s awake, Tom estimates that he thinks about sex once every four minutes on average, which matches Nolan’s statement.

Similar claims have been advanced by others with different time intervals between sexual thoughts. To determine whether such claims are true, Terri Fisher and her team of researchers used “experience sampling,” a technique in which subjects record their thoughts at random moments throughout the day.

She issued clickers to 238 college students, whom she divided into three groups. One group would click whenever they thought of sex, the second group whenever they thought of food, and the third group whenever they thought of sleep. On average, the men thought of sex 19 times a day and the women, 10 times a day.

It’s possible that the students were influenced by their instructions to click when they thought of sex, food, or sleep and so thought about these topics more often than they would have otherwise.

Wilhelm Hoffman and his colleagues employed a different approach. Using participants’ smartphones, the students were notified seven times a day at random to record the topic of their current thoughts. On average, participants thought about sex once a day.

Although the results of Hoffman’s study may also have been skewed by giving instructions to the participants, both his and Fisher’s studies suggest that Nolan’s claim is false.[7]

Swiss Miss

The comedy Swiss Miss (1938) stars Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy as mousetrap salesmen who travel to Switzerland to sell their wares because they believe that the country known for Swiss cheese must also have more mice. The movie includes a scene in which Laurel cons a Saint Bernard out of the keg of brandy carried on the dog’s collar.

Prior to Swiss Miss, cartoons and humorous illustrations depicted Saint Bernards as coming to the rescue of stranded alpine hikers or mountain climbers. The kegs of brandy carried by the dogs kept the victims warm while help was on the way.

However, the idea that alcohol can keep a body warm is a misconception. Although drinking alcohol may initially help you to feel warmer, it actually reduces your core body temperature. So if you drink alcohol while stranded in the snow, you could suffer from deadly hypothermia.[8]

The Viking

Photo credit: vikingsofbjornstad.com

For decades, movies featuring Vikings have shown Norse warriors wearing horned helmets. The Viking (1928) is only one such movie based on the mistaken idea.

The misconception probably began in the 1800s when illustrations of fierce Scandinavian warriors showed them wearing helmets adorned with horns. The Viking costumes designed for Richard Wagner’s opera cycle Der Ring des Nibelungen included horned helmets, which may have led to the stereotype.

In reality, no evidence supports the idea that Viking helmets were equipped with horns. In illustrations from the Vikings’ time, they are shown with bare heads or wearing simple iron or leather helmets. So far, one complete Viking helmet has been found in Norway in 1943. Made of iron, it had a rounded cap with a guard for the eyes and nose. There were no horns.[9]

The Tingler

The misconception that fingernails continue to grow after death appears to have been popularized by The Tingler (1959) in which Vincent Price plays pathologist Dr. Warren Chapin. He explains that “a great many things continue to live in the human body” after death. For example, fingernails still grow.

Chapin couldn’t have been much of a pathologist if he believed what he said. Medical science teaches us that fingernail growth depends on glucose producing new cells. Since dead people don’t consume glucose—or anything else—there’s no supply of the sugar.

The misconception that fingernails continue to grow after a person dies probably stems from the fact that dehydration causes the skin around the nails to retract, which makes the nails look longer.[10]

Top 5 All-Time Great Inter-Generational Wrestling Showdowns

Top 5 All-Time Great Inter-Generational Wrestling Showdowns

The last time Chris Jericho competed for a promotion other than WWE, he was a 26-year-old Canadian cruiserweight from Winnipeg, Manitoba making waves in WCW with cocky promos and signature submissions. At that same juncture in 1999, Kenny Omega (a.k.a. Tyson Smith) was a hockey-playing, wrestling-loving Canuck teen in the suburban town of Transcona just outside – you guessed it – Winnipeg, Manitoba. National bragging rights will certainly be on the line when the two improbably meet at New Japan Wrestling’s show of shows, Wrestle Kingdom, this coming January 4th in Tokyo.

The blockbuster bout, which was announcedearlier this month, also represents the latest in a continuum of sports-entertainment clashes that pit an archetypal icon (Jericho) against a younger competitor in the prime of his ability and popularity (Omega). Part dream match, part passing of the torch, Y2J vs. The Cleaner has all the makings of a May-September pairing from heaven, and if history is any guide, it should coast into instant-classic status. For proof, here's a select handful of similar inter-generational showdowns featuring opponents at least a decade apart in age (with competitors' ages at the timeoted) that remain streaming favorites and set the bar Jericho and Omega hope to raise.

The Clash: The Undertaker (37) vs. Jeff Hardy (24)

The Setting: Monday Night RAW, July 1, 2002, Manchester, NH
Signature Moment(s): Hardy springboarding off a prone ladder over the top rope onto 'Taker, a defeated Hardy doing his best Elton John by wheezing, "I'm still standing," 'Taker raising his young opponent's arm in approval-sealing disbelief.

The Clash: Ric Flair (39) vs. Sting (29)

The Setting: WCW Clash of the Champions, March 27, 1988, Greensboro, NC

This Flying Bathtub Is A Triumph Of Engineering And Man's Capacity For Dumb Ideas

Did anyone really need "the world's first manned flying tub"? No, but that's not really the point.

This pair of wacky inventors have left other drone pilots in the dark, creating their own human-sized flying machine using none other than a BATHTUB.  The eye-opening footage of "the world's first manned flying tub" shows how Johannes and Phillip Mickenbecker managed to successfully get their creation off the ground, flying it around a local gym with a pilot inside.

Remote-controlled, the flying machine is a concept that Di Vinci himself would have been proud of, using the same elements of technology as everyday drones - only on a much larger scale.  The brothers - who go by The Real Life Guys on their social media platforms - said they have always had the idea of creating a flying machine, but it was not until the summer of 2017 that they began looking into the possibility of making such an invention a reality.

Businessman Uses 11,000 Coins For BMW Down Payment

Businessman Uses 11,000 Coins For BMW Down Payment

Everyone had a piggybank growing up, and I’m sure a lot of you still have a bucket of change in your place. But do you have enough to buy a BMW? Well one businessman in China apparently did as that is exactly how he decided to pay for his down payment of a new BMW.

According to The Daily Mail, a bunch of employees at a car dealership had to buckle down and count coins when a businessman entered with a bunch of boxes of coins — 11,000 coins to be exact. It took the employees hours to count all of the coins, and they actually had to close down the dealership in order to do this task.

Check out the video below:

 

 

All in all the businessman brought in about $10,800 in coins alone.

Mr. Gu, the sales manager of BMW in Putian, Fujian Province, told Pear Video that the business was doing wholesale business and he insisted paying the first installment in coins.

“They (the coins) were all five maos that the client had been saving over the years,” Mr. Gu said. “There were worth about 70,000 yuan ($10,000) in total,”

Luckily for the employees, the man paid the rest of the car (about $50,000) the regular old fashion way. But just imagine if after all of that counting the man decided he was going to hold off on buying a car. Oh boy…

The Unreasonable Efficiency Of Black Holes

The Unreasonable Efficiency Of Black Holes

 

This video is about how efficient various reactions are at converting mass to energy (as we know from the Einstein mass-energy equivalence of E=mc^2). Antimatter is very efficient but it is not naturally-occurring. Chemical reactions like fire or explosions are very inefficient. Nuclear fission and nuclear fusion are better, but not amazing on an absolute scale. Non-rotating black holes (Schwarzschild) and rotating (Kerr) are by far the most efficient, due to their accretion disks and very small radius of their innermost stable circular orbits.
