Canadian Mint employee accused of smuggling $180K of gold in rectum

Justice Peter Doody presiding!

Court was told Lawrence set off the metal detector at an exit from the "secure area" with more frequency than any other employee -- save those with metal medical implants. When that happened, the procedure was to do a manual search with a hand-held wand, a search that he always passed.

Investigators also found a container of vaseline in his locker and the trial was presented with the prospect that a puck could be concealed in an anal cavity and not be detected by the wand. In preparation for these proceedings, in fact, a security employee actually tested the idea, Barnes said. [...]

Barnes implied there were many ways Lawrence could have legitimately obtained the gold -- he could have bought the coins, for instance -- and said he made no efforts to be devious with the gold buyers or the bank. Further, Barnes said, the Mint isn't even sure a theft took place.

"In fact, I would submit the Mint doesn't even know if anything is missing."

Seeking Facebook's iPhone app key

Dear Lazyweb, how do I get an OAuth token that impersonates Facebook's official app?

Why? Because I desire to post videos to my business's "page", and apparently "normal" apps can't do that. The official Facebook app has permissions that you apparently cannot give to yourself.

It used to be possible to impersonate the Facebook iPhone app when accessing it via the graph API by generating an OAuth token using that app's ID (6628568379) and secret (c1e620fa708a1d5696fb991c1bde5662).

After working for years, that token stopped working last week: now those sessions say "the user has changed the password", which is... a weird error. So I tried to regenerate it the way I had in the past, by loading this in a logged-in browser:

That ought to redirect to a URL with an access_token= on it, but now it says "does not look like a valid app ID."

So maybe the app ID of the current iPhone app is different? But "" suggests not.

And if I run the FB iPhone app through mitmproxy, I can't log in, so I can't sniff it. Maybe it's doing cert pinning. Who knows.

Any suggestions on how to re-crack this bastard?

Gallium sound waves

Thump Identity:

The usage of the Cymatic Gallium instead of the water pools was a creative push to create something novel by utilizing a material that had rarely been affected by audio-driven vibrations before. Gallium is special its low melting point of roughly 85 degrees F, allowing it to melt at body temperatures. The setup was to allow the liquid metal to vibrate across a black acrylic plane, swirling in recessed typographic pools that collectively made up the construct of the Thump logo.

To create the organic ripples that affected the Gallium, the team hooked up a series of Synthesizers and cultivated a series of custom built sine-wave frequencies from a large speaker that caused the metal troughs resting on it to ripple and form detailed sound wave patterns. These sounds were then synchronized with the camera's frame-rate, thus achieving the time frozen formation look, and also were used in the final sound design and mix so the visual feedback felt real and authentic.

Passive Aggressive Anger Release Machine

I'm not sure that's a long enough drop that they would all necessarily break, and that would be very frustrating.

All you have to do is insert a coin, and a piece of China will Slowly move forwards and fall into the bottom of the machine, breaking, and leaving you happy and relieved of anger.
