Bodies hanging from bridge in Mexico are warning to social media users

Google and Facebook remind you that no one has any legitimate reason to hide their real name online.

Social media users who denounce drug cartel activities along the Mexican border received a brutal warning this week: two mangled bodies hanging like cuts of meat from a pedestrian bridge.

A woman was hogtied and disemboweled, her intestines protruding from three deep cuts on her abdomen. Attackers left her topless, dangling by her feet and hands from a bridge in the border city of Nuevo Laredo. A bloodied man next to her was hanging by his hands, his right shoulder severed so deeply the bone was visible.

Signs left near the bodies declared the pair, both apparently in their early 20s, were killed for posting denouncements of drug cartel activities on a social network.

"This is going to happen to all of those posting funny things on the Internet," one sign said. "You better (expletive) pay attention. I'm about to get you."

Taxis cause prostitution, probably. Seems legit.

How prostitution and alcohol make Uber better

In other words: The parts of San Francisco that have the most prostitution, alcohol, theft, and burglary also have the most Uber rides!

Of course this isn't in any way causal. I don't think our Uber riders are causing more prostitution. Right guys?

Wet Pixels

I thought I had posted about this device before, but I can't find it now. An "on" pixel is a single drop of water. It's doing bottom-to-top raster scanning with drips, scrolling provided by gravity.
