Finland's speeding fines are linked to income, with penalties calculated on daily earnings, meaning high earners get hit with bigger penalties for breaking the law. So, when businessman Reima Kuisla was caught doing 103km/h (64mph) in an area where the speed limit is 80km/h (50mph), authorities turned to his 2013 tax return. He earned 6.5m euros (£4.72m) that year, so was told to hand over 54,000 euros.
The scale of the fine hasn't gone down well with Mr Kuisla. "Ten years ago I wouldn't have believed that I would seriously consider moving abroad," he says on his Facebook page. "Finland is impossible to live in for certain kinds of people who have high incomes and wealth."
In 2002, an executive at Nokia was slapped with a 116,000-euro fine for speeding on his Harley Davidson motorbike. His penalty was based on a salary of 14m euros.
I run my own mail server, but most of my employees use Gmail. So I have forwarding set up: email@example.com simply forwards to firstname.lastname@example.org. When sending mail using their Gmail account, they set their From line to email@example.com. (Google lets you do this if you jump through some hoops to verify that you can actually receive mail at that account.)
So when one of them mails another, the mail goes from their phone up to Google's SMTP server, with "From: A@dnalounge.com, To: B@dnalounge.com". That hits the dnalounge.com MX (my machine) and is forwarded back to "B@gmail.com" -- where it then ends up in B's spam folder, because Google (maybe?) thinks it's a "forgery".
I have proper DMARC and DKIM records ("dig TXT mail. What do I have to do to make Google stop fucking me? Allowing Google to host the dnalounge.com domain is not an acceptable answer. Not having "@dnalounge.com" in the From and To fields is not an acceptable answer. Forcing all of my employees to use my own IMAP server instead of Gmail would be a moderately terrible answer.

The channel is already controversial because of its redaction tactics, and it comes as a presidential task force about the nation's policing recommended that police wear body cameras. The body cam channel features seemingly Soviet-era-like footage, and it's already being criticized. That criticism comes from Tim Clemans, the Washington state computer programmer who is redacting or blurring the video and removing voices on behalf of the police department.
"I'm having to work with people who don't want this released period. There's a number of people trying to put up every obstacle possible," Clemans said. Clemans is doing it for free. The redaction surgery usually takes about one minute per minute of footage, he said. He runs it through "five lines of open source code."
The agency is redacting more from the footage than what's required under the state's public record laws, he said.
"The department does not want to post raw video on its YouTube channel. It fears a privacy controversy," he said.
The department is burning as many as 7,000 DVDs monthly to meet public demand for information. The agency has more than 1.5 million videos taking up 364 terabytes. The footage includes dash cam video, 911 responses, and "interviews with victims, witnesses and suspects."
Clemans understands that the agency can't keep up with demands. He said that public disclosure through the YouTube channel is a "middle ground" of sorts. [...]
Clemens hooked up with the Seattle Police Department after he rattled the agency last year by filing more than 30 public-information requests on every 911 emergency call in which officers responded. The demand included dash cam and body cam footage.
I expect to see this stuff used as raw material in some Pattern Recognition-style videos. Please get right on that.

What have you got?
Why does his helmet need a helmet??
Yo Dawg, I heard you liked helmets so we put a helmet on your helmet so you can helmet while you helmet.
(Please don't answer that rhetorical question. I am sure your answer will be Neckbeard Dumb.)
