U.S. Government Claims China Using LinkedIn to Recruit Spies in America

The U.S. government claims that China is using LinkedIn to recruit spies in America. And it’s now calling for Microsoft, the company that owns LinkedIn, to shut down allegedly fake accounts being used to build its spy network. First reported by Reuters, the allegations are being made by William Evanina, the head of U.S. counter-intelligence.

Why digital cards?

Somebody recently asked:

What got you interested in digital cards? What were the main factors that hooked you and why did you stick around?

My wife and I first started on the Star Wars Card Trader app in April. We were in Disney World for the weekend and I saw an article about it on one of the Gawker sites. I sure wish someone had done that article earlier because we missed a LOT of stuff that...

Museum Visitor Falls Into Giant Hole That Looks Like a Cartoonish Painting on the Floor

Like a real-life version of a Looney Tunes cartoon, a visitor to a Portuguese museum was injured last week when he stepped into an art installation resembling an inky void. Currently on exhibit at the Serralves Museum in Porto, Descent Into Limbo by Anish Kapoor includes an actual eight-foot hole that’s painted black—so it appears to have no depth at all.

According to Britain’s Times,...

A Seattle NHL team for the 2020–21 season is now a fait accompli. There’s a city council vote next week to move forward on the KeyArena renovation, then a pair of NHL votes, but by December’s board of governor’s meeting, it’ll be official. [Seattle Times]

The combination of insufficient resources for mentally ill people and a Texas law requiring law enforcement cooperation with ICE has created a toxic and dangerous situation for immigrants with mental health issues in the state.

Pays to look harder

Got to my local Toys R Us to see this man digging around the fresh pegs so I jokingly asked “found any super?” He said “nah someone already went through them.” I didn’t want to search since I took his word for it. However, before I left, I thought it wouldn’t hurt to just check for a few seconds. Low and behold the Super I wanted to find all year was sitting right at the back of a peg.

Been waiting for this for a while

Not as much swearing as expected sadly.

Jerry Jones The Owner Might Want To Have A Word With Jerry Jones The GM

The hot new trend for NFL teams looking to establish and sustain success is to construct a deep roster around a young quarterback on a cost-controlled contract. The Eagles won last year’s Super Bowl doing this. The Rams, Bears, Chiefs, Buccaneers, and Titans are using the same blueprint this season. And the Browns, Jets, and Bills (to varying degrees) are set up to shop for plenty of...

Micro Military Monday

Today’s Micro Monday is another one sent by Vdubyajohn. Its a casting I’d never seen before, and with those wheels I thought it was a knock-off, but the base confirms that it is indeed a genuine Micro Machine.

Push the button, and the cargo cover splits open to reveal an aim able missile. Pretty freaking cool!

Thanks for the fantastic addition to my collection John!

Trinket magnate Jeff Bezos, America’s richest man, has made a very public charity donation of a $2 billion. The number sounds big, doesn’t it? In fact, it is a disgrace. Let us demonstrate:
