Weed Vending Machine

Vending machines. We all use them for small convenience items. Now if you live in Los Angeles and have a legal medical marijuana prescription you can pick up your dosage at one of two new dispensaries. However, not just anyone can walk up and get a dose of herb. The machines are guarded by 24/7 security guards, require preregistration with a fingerprint taken, and the purchase of a prepaid card with your personal data loaded on it. The machines will offer several different varieties including OG Cush and Granddaddy Purple. Read more on the new weed machines HERE.

Clever Smugglers

Smugglers and criminals in the United States seem to be getting smarter. Recently it has become known that they are copying the exterior logo designs on their vans from some of the most credible organizations in the country. They have decorated vehicles to mimic Walmart, FedEx, DirecTV, and even government organizations such as the Department of Transportation and the Border Patrol. They've been taking drugs, illegal aliens, and god knows what else across the border using this clever trick. But honestly, how smart are the people we have protecting our borders? You think that they'd check the vehicles anyway. I mean, it's clever but not that clever. C'mon guys. You can read the full story HERE.

Strange Little Guns

Tiny concealable guns have a great amount of variety and can be found in all sorts of shapes and disguises. This website known as Club Little Gun has a large collection of small weaponry and many interesting pictures of historical guns used throughout history. Their collection of small concealed antique weaponry has examples of everything from a crucifix gun to a fishing hook gun that shoots your fish when you hook it! Some truly interesting stuff even if you're not a "gun nut." Check it out HERE.

World's Worst Museum Auction

Louis Tussaud's House of Wax in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, UK is selling off some 75 heads from their notorious collection which has come to label the museum as one of the worst in the world. The auction will take place at Keys Fine Art Auctioneers on February 12 and the heads are expected to go for £50 to £80. These things are creepy as hell. Check out the full story with some more pics HERE.Travolta on the left and Bob Hope on the right...I think.

Anonymous Vs. Scientology

Perhaps you have heard of the organization of internet users known as anonymous that congregate on the 4chan imageboards as well as others and have been known to be internet "trouble causers" or perhaps "heroes." Well they have apparently decided to start a war against The Church of Scientology. The way Anonymous conducts "war" usually is by flooding servers and causing them to crash with intense amounts of traffic. I'm not sure whether this is a joke or if this is serious but it is interesting nonetheless. The following YouTube video is a vocalization of the official statement which can be read below the video.

"Hello, Scientology. We are Anonymous.
Over the years, we have been watching you. Your campaigns of misinformation; suppression of dissent; your litigious nature, all of these things have caught our eye. With the leakage of your latest propaganda video into mainstream circulation, the extent of your malign influence over those who trust you, who call you leader, has been made clear to us. Anonymous has therefore decided that your organization should be destroyed. For the good of your followers, for the good of mankind–for the laughs–we shall expel you from the Internet and systematically dismantle the Church of Scientology in its present form. We acknowledge you as a serious opponent, and we are prepared for a long, long campaign. You will not prevail forever against the angry masses of the body politic. Your methods, hypocrisy, and the artlessness of your organization have sounded its death knell.
You cannot hide; we are everywhere.
We cannot die; we are forever. We're getting bigger every day–and solely by the force of our ideas, malicious and hostile as they often are. If you want another name for your opponent, then call us Legion, for we are many.
Yet for all that we are not as monstrous as you are; still our methods are a parallel to your own. Doubtless you will use the Anon's actions as an example of the persecution you have so long warned your followers would come; this is acceptable. In fact, it is encouraged. We are your SPs.
Gradually as we merge our pulse with that of your "Church", the suppression of your followers will become increasingly difficult to maintain. Believers will wake, and see that salvation has no price. They will know that the stress, the frustration that they feel is not something that may be blamed upon Anonymous. No–they will see that it stems from a source far closer to each. Yes, we are SPs. But the sum of suppression we could ever muster is eclipsed by that of the RTC.
Knowledge is free.
We are Anonymous.
We are Legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
Expect us."
