  • Oregon fines man $500 for using math to challenge red-light cameras

    Few things in this world are as universally despised as traffic cameras. After his wife received a ticket for tripping a red-light camera, Oregon resident Mats Järlström openly criticized the Orwellian devices and the mathematical formulas these cameras use. It seems Big Brother doesn't take too kindly to dissenters, as according to the Institute for Justice Järlström was fined $500 for violating a law that prohibits mathematical criticism without a license. Free speech is a term that's often misconstrued. It's not some blanket to hide behind while spouting ridicule and hate to anyone and everyone. In the US, what free speech does protect is the right of a person to openly criticize the government,

  • Unicorn frappucinos are dead. Long live dragon frappuccinos.

    A couple days ago, we suggested other mythical creatures who are not unicorns that deserve to have their own frappuccinos.  Little did we know, one of those frappuccinos was indeed developing in the shadows of the unicorn frappuccino. And now, with the unicorn frappuccino run officially over at Starbucks, that new frappuccino has come into the spotlight. Introducing the dragon frappuccino. SEE ALSO: Starbucks baristas are now creating 'unicorn lemonade' and there's no end to this 109/365: I apologized profusely to my barista before ordering the basic AF #unicornfrappuccino - thankfully they were out of the ingredients and offered me something not only cooler and better tasting, but easier to make: the #dragonfrappuccino @starbucks #ionlyordereditbecauseitmatchesmyhair A post shared by Mercy Martin 濾 (@heyymercyy) on Apr 19, 2017 at 9:34pm PDT It appears that some Starbucks locations, such as the one in the Instagram picture above, had run out of ingredients to make the insanely popular Unicorn Frappuccino. So instead, baristas offered a new, unofficial concoction: the dragon frappuccino. In fact, at least one location tried to make the drink official with sign that proclaimed it as a store exclusive. However, since it's not a product made by Starbucks HQ, you probably won't be able to find it in the majority of stores and the recipes vary. A post shared by Varin Thorn (@varin_thorn) on Apr 21, 2017 at 9:05pm PDT Many Instagram posts have explained that it's a green tea frappuccino with vanilla bean powder and a berry swirl on the inside of the cup. One post saw the green tea being mixed with dried blueberries to create the purple color along with the green. A Starbucks created this to replace the unicorn frappuccino so we duplicated it and it's yummy!!! #dragonfrappuccino A post shared by Smith's Starbucks (@starbucks.smiths) on Apr 26, 2017 at 9:58am PDT We think the moral of the story is that people are starting to become more and more creative in either what they create at Starbucks or what they force their baristas to create. And then we just slap a catchy name to it. So long live creativity and frappuccinos. WATCH: Woman uses Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino to spread some magical news to her husband

  • Researchers found the body of a 25-foot-long shark, and it's grim but strangely beautiful

SEE ALSO: If footage of this ethereal jellyfish doesn't calm you, nothing will Photographer Matthew Facey also visited the sight to photograph the shark. "My initial thought from a distance was it looked like a great white, but I've never heard of one washing up here," he said. "When we took a closer look he had no teeth, so it was clear he was a basking shark, quite common in Cornwall, and a gentle giant." Over the next few days, volunteers were assembled and the proper organizations

  • U.S. says strategy on North Korea centers on sanctions, open to talks

    By Phil Stewart and David Brunnstrom WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Trump administration said on Wednesday it aimed to push North Korea into dismantling its nuclear and missile programs through tougher international sanctions and diplomatic pressure, and remained open to negotiations to bring this about. The U.S. stance, which appeared to signal a willingness to exhaust non-military options in spite of repeated warnings that "all options are on the table," came in a statement following an unusual White House-hosted briefing for the entire Senate. The statement from Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats described North Korea as "an urgent national security threat and top foreign policy priority".
