how to make your own prison hooch

Remember To Feel The Hate:
"Pruno, a prison wine created from fruit, sugar and ketchup, is such a vile and despicable beast in the California state penal system that prisoners can't eat fresh fruit at lunch. Back in December 2002, the warden at Lancaster prison in Los Angeles County removed fresh fruit from box lunches in the maximum-security lockup, as an effort to reduce violence. Apparently, sober, scurvy-addled felons are much easier to control than drunken, violent convicts."

ATM shim hack

No doubt you've heard about people fitting their own fake card readers onto ATMs in order to capture card info; here are some pretty good pictures of one. It reads the info off the card, and captures your password by pointing a camera at the keypad! It then wirelessly transmits this info to the crooks, so they don't even need to go back and retrieve the gear! Pictures here (with captions in some strange moon-man language.) Worse pictures here (but in English.)

At-sign added to Morse Code:
The new sign, which will be known as a "commat," consists of the signals for "A" (dot-dash) and "C" (dash-dot-dash-dot), with no space between them.

"It's a pretty big deal," said Paul Rinaldo, chief technical officer for the American Radio Relay League, the national association for amateur radio operators. "There certainly hasn't been any change since before World War II."

While Morse code has a period, a question mark, and even a semicolon, it offers no simple way to articulate excitement. "I was hoping they'd add a character for the exclamation point," said Yocanovich, who is active in the International Morse Preservation Society. "It expresses an emotion that's difficult to get across any other way."

I, for one, welcome our new damned dirty rodent-monkey-hybrid nuts-on-the-back overlords

Mice produce sperm from monkeys:
Mice have been used to produce viable monkey sperm using tissue transplanted from the testes of macaques. The latest procedure involves transplanting a tiny amount of testicular tissue from an immature rhesus macaque monkey under the skin of a lab mouse. After seven months, the testes grafts on the backs of the mice were seen to produce viable sperm. Grafting immature testis tissue appears to work because the host mouse had been castrated, Dobrinski says.
