Seen right here at crotch level with rescue workers, a 17-year old highschooler from National City, California got his arm stuck in a Coke appliance attempting to take a beverage. It took over an hour for rescue employees to relieve the boy, presumably since they didn’t merely chop his arm off like I might have.
After a failed attempt to obtain the keys for the soda pop equipment, authorities determined they had to take the rescue up a notch and started making use of axes to slice at the sides of the vending machine.
When that procedure failed, rescuers attempted using crowbars – even to no avail.
Authorities then requested a fire engine with saws and hydraulic tools. They used a rotating saw and air chisel to dismantle the vending appliance and at some point, the teen was separated from the tight opening.
The teenager was then taken into custody by police who stated he may deal with costs for petty fraud. Authorities stated the teen might also need to foot the statement for fire and medical services, in addition to damages to the soft drink machine.
You shoulda done the Dew, homie! Or, I dunno, asked your moms and dads for an advance on your allowance. You do know soda pop equipments aren’t like bite to eat vending machines, right? You can not just run an arched coathanger up there and stab a bag of Doritos. If everybody with little twiggy arms could merely jam their hand up the chute and get cost-free beverages do not you think I would certainly have my little sister and a carload of her good friends on our method to the bowling alley today? “But you do.” MY MOTHER’S CREATING ME TAKE THEM TO THE SHOPPING CENTER.
Hit the jump for a video news report, which ends with the reporters discussing their vending-machine shaking methods.

Bitchin’ tan, bro.
In a move that proves manufacturers probably shouldn’t jokingly print “best worn over your head like an astronaut helmet” on plastic bags, a group of Japanese tourists followed the GPS directions in their rental car into the channel separating two Australian islands. “…But there’s water up ahead.” GUN IT — MAYBE WE’RE SUPPOSED TO HYDROPLANE!
The Tokyo students had wanted to take a day trip to Straddie and believed their GPS unit would be able to guide them there. The GPS forgot to mention the 15 kilometres of water and mud between the mainland and the island.
Yuzu Noda, 21, said she was listening to the GPS and “it told us we could drive down there. It kept saying it would navigate us to a road. We got stuck . . . there’s lots of mud.”
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! If your GPS told you to drive off a mountain would you do it? Because I’ll totally program it to say that if you would.
Thanks to Joel, who claims his GPS told him to go to that strip club so he can’t be blamed.

This is why poor people can’t have nice things.
Derp Dopp won this 2008 Lamborghini Murcielago LP-640 in a convenience store’s “Joe Shmo to Lambo” contest. Theeeeeeen crashed it in a field six hours later. Because that’s what you do with things you win: destroy them. By God I woke up without a Lambo AND I’M GOING TO SLEEP WITHOUT ONE.
Dopp was taking family members and friends on joy rides the first evening. He said he took a curve at about 45 mph and “hit some black ice and spun out.” The car jumped a curb and went through a fence before coming to a rest about 75 feet off the road. Neither Dopp nor his passenger was injured.
The lime green convertible was being held by his insurance company at a Utah towing yard. It will be sent to an authorized Las Vegas dealer for repairs next week.
“I already had offers on it. I’m going to sell it,” David Dopp said Wednesday. “I have bills more important than a Lamborghini. I’ve got a family to support.”
Pfft, what bills and family are actually more important than a Lamborghini? Everyone can have bills and a family, but a Lambo? That’s a once in a miserable lifetime opportunity. If there was a contest for a Lambo where you had to alienate your entire family AND pay a fat tax I would enter it. Hello, sis? I HATE YOU AND YOUR CHILDREN ARE TROLLS. See? Piece of cake. *dialing grandpa*
Hit the jump for a video news report of the sadness.
If you’ve been in photography for more than ten years, you probably remember the way things used to be on old film cameras. There was no electronic interconnect between the lens and the body, so lens-related functions (focus, zoom, aperture) were on the lens and body-related functions (ASA, shutter speed) were on the body. That changed as autofocus and auto-exposure, particularly on digital cameras, necessitated a data connection between the lens and the body. While we never did away with the focus and zoom rings, aperture went right out the window and was electronically controlled.
A few nice cameras have aperture rings now — the X100, for instance — but generally speaking you can’t find one except on professional cinema gear these days. But Canon may be looking to change that.
A recent patent detailed at Photography Bay shows a system for controlling the functions of a lens using three on-lens rings (or two on a prime, presumably), the hindmost of which controls a diaphragm, which we can take to mean the iris. Old-school photographers will be overjoyed.
Newer camera systems have attempted to modernize the ring system by having one ring stand in for all three, its active function chosen by a switch or setting. A reasonable attempt but (I suspect) unsatisfying for many photographers.
One point that isn’t clear is whether the ring will be stepped or stepless. Traditionally, aperture rings have moved in mechanically-separated 1/3-stop steps, which aids in keeping exposures consistent and prevents an aperture equivalent to zoom creep. But the stepped exposure dial is a pain for motion video, where the steps are easily perceived as they change. There’s no reason why the iris shouldn’t be able to move smoothly from open to shut and stop anywhere along the way (perhaps rounded off to the nearest third), and it may be that this is a feature planned for Canon’s next big announcement in November.
No announcements have been made, of course, but the patent was interesting to warrant a post anyway.
What does it take for a gaming classic to survive in a world ruled by titles like Portal 2 and Homefront? A Kinect hack, a Wiimote, and some electronic elbow grease, apparently. Trinity College student Keysosaurus — as he’s know to his YouTube pals — has used a bit of C#, XNA, and OpenNI coding to play 3D augmented reality Tetris using Kinect body controls and a Wiimote. The Kinect gestures do most of the work, rotating the board, zooming the camera in and out, and moving the pieces into place, while the Nintendo controller is used to rotate. Video’s after the break, but beware, the familiar strains of “Korobeiniki” have been replaced by smooth guitar jazz, so turn the volume up at your own risk.

[support alert] ASUS UL30Vt-A1: I cannot watch 720p video at a smooth rate when using the Intel GPU.
When I am on the Intel chipset with Turbo Boost on I can't seem to watch 720p video at a smooth rate? Is there some hidden Asus or general junk running that I should know about? or can this graphics card just not handle 720p and I need to switch to the Nvidia card when watching HD content?

The Bumpfree Dynamic Speed Bump concept could change the way drivers approach a speed deterrent in the future. It will allow drivers who are traveling at the right speed limit to pass over the bump without hindrance but will “remind” drivers traveling above the limit to slow down by creating the same feeling one gets when passing over a speed-bump – but without the usual speed-bump impact…
