Solar Lightbulb

For those of you who are familiar with Stephen Chow’s movies, you may remember this scene featuring the solar flashlight:

Well folks, solar flashlights are a real thing. Surprisingly, they’re actually much more useful than shown in the above clip. Here’s an example of how Solar lightbulbs are used to light up dark spaces:

Outsource to China. Not All That Bad, Maybe?

Watching today’s episode of Security Now, and they were talking about this story:

A US-based software developer has been caught outsourcing his work to China for less than a fifth of his six figure salary – while he spent his day browsing Facebook, LinkedIn, Ebay and Reddit.

In a case study outlined by the team, Verizon said: “The company’s IT personnel were sure that the issue had to do with some kind of zero day malware that was able to initiate VPN connections from Bob’s desktop workstation via external proxy and then route that VPN traffic to China, only to be routed back to their concentrator.

Holy shit, if all you had to do to outsource your job was give them an RSA key and pay 20% of your salary, that’s awesome! I hate my daytime job, but this guy totally Tim Ferriss‘d his job! It all went so well… Until you got caught.

You know what else is deadly? “Instant Regret” Peanut Butter!

A new spicy variety of peanut butter – six times hotter than the world’s hottest chilli – is to be sold in Britain.

The aptly named Instant Regret peanut butter is packed with capsaicin – the component that provides the heat within a chilli.

On the Scoville scale, which measures the heat of chilli peppers, the peanut butter boasts a whopping rating of 12,000,000.

To put this in perspective, the world’s hottest chilli – the Moruga Scorpion – rates at 2,000,000, as does the most legal variant of pepper spray.

I wonder how well this will go with Bacon pancakes?
