The flesh you wear is a lie you tell the world. Apple can see your true face.

US10719692B2 - Vein matching for difficult biometric authentication cases:

Subepidermal images of the user may be used to assess subepidermal features such as blood vessels (e.g., veins) when the device is attempting to authenticate the user. The subepidermal features may be compared to templates of subepidermal features for an authorized (e.g., enrolled) user of the device. Assessment of subepidermal features during the facial recognition authentication process may be useful in distinguishing between users that have closely related facial features (e.g., siblings or twins). In addition, assessment of subepidermal features may be used to prevent unlocking of the device by an unauthorized user wearing a mask or using another face replication method.

Kool-Aid man can burst through walls because he weighs 5.5 tons.

Here's a well-researched video including details on material density and blood loss.

And here's a D&D character sheet, which envisions it as two symbiotic creatures, rather than one with an unfortunate trepanation situation and sloshing blood like a horseshoe crab.

But most importantly, let's nevar forget that this gentle giant used to offer silent guided tours of Second Life.

Xinfly All-Inclusive Male Massager

Finally got my emacs setup just how I like it.

buttplugio: Imagine the design considerations when this was invented.

janetlieberlu: This music is way too chill for how utterly terrifying this device is. It's all soothing phrases and then "Smear the Orange anus lubricant..." hits you...

Animatronics That Didn't Make It Into The Thing Remake

Many people were frustrated with the special effects being largely CG on the final cut. What a lot of people don't know is that practical versions for almost all the effects were made and many even shot first! However, many were replaced entirely by CG for the release.

Inflatable COVID

A coronavirus outbreak at the Kaiser Permanente San Jose Emergency Department, possibly caused by an inflatable Christmas costume, has affected 43 staff members so far, all of whom tested positive within the past week.

"A staff member did appear briefly in the emergency department on Dec. 25th wearing an air-powered costume," said Irene Chavez, senior vice president and area manager of Kaiser's San Jose Medical Center, in a written response to Chronicle questions. " Any exposure, if it occurred, would have been completely innocent, and quite accidental, as the individual had no COVID symptoms and only sought to lift the spirits of those around them during what is a very stressful time." [...]

Air-powered costumes will "obviously" no longer be allowed, she added.

How is nobody reporting on what the costume was? How is that not your first followup question?

I'm going to assume it was a T-Rex.

They said "Christmas costume" but that does not rule out T-Rex.

It puts a sinister new spin on this video:
