Operation Repo TV Show FAKE

Kill it with Fire

Everyone probably knew this one already.

Some of the acts were unbelievable and somewhat staged.  Then came the day when Matt was Tasered.  The Taser was shot at him, the wires went past him and hit the ground.  Then in the next scene, he was convulsing on the ground but with both wires attached to his chest.

Then he claimed he pissed himself, showing off his piss stained jean shorts.  So if it was a re-enactment, it was very realistic.

So, some google research later, many people are stating that the show is a fake, sighting the disclaimer at the start of the show – “The stories that are portrayed in this program are based on real
events. The names of the characters were changed in order to protect
their identities… and some honor”.

Fake, Fail, and no longer watching.

Australia Post stuffs up again, ebay satchels

I decided to buy some ebay satchels from the Australia Post ebay shop…
One week ofter they promised to send them, nothing…
Now I get this email from Auspost saying they are comming in late.  Hate Australia Post, they are cunts.

Thank you for your interest in the Australia Post/eBay flat rate satchels.
It has been brought to my attention that some of the orders dated the xx/xx/xx were not included on the download from eBay for some reason.

Because it is unclear how many users were affected, all orders have been resent today, and should arrive to you in the next few days.
I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for the delay, and for any inconvenience caused, I am working with eBay to find the root of the problem, and to make sure it does not occur again.
Kind regards,
xxxxx/x | Australia Post

[solved] Google Search Redirects, cant copy links greasemonkey

I hate the way google redirects it links.  If I want to copy a link for a email or something, I get some garbage that is no where near the direct link.
If you are using firefox, install Greasemonkey and then get this script from userscripts.org

No more redirects, and the browsing experience looks good.

DIY telescopic expandable baton

These things are cool, but are banned/expensive in some areas.

I would like to make one, some day.

Here are some ideas to make a expandable baton from everyday things.

1. Use the leg from a tripod.  Perhaps not the strongest way, epically if it is aluminium.  But you will get a good idea of how to make them.

2. Use a gas strut from a car hatchback or similar.  These are usually worn out and have no gas when they are old.  A sharp flick of the strut will produce the inner part and ready for whacking.  Be careful drilling into these.

Any other ideas are welcome, no one else has produced a ‘how to’ in the making of a a real expandable baton.
