If you think it’s impossible for some nefarious entity to rig every voting machine in the

If you think it’s impossible for some nefarious entity to rig every voting machine in the US in order to steal a presidential election, you’re almost certainly right. But flip a county here or a congressional district there, enough to tip the Electoral College? That’s not so farfetched. And it might not matter if the American public has completely lost its trust in the voting system anyway. There is a voting machine in J. Alex Halderman’s office, not a particularly large one, just an oversize computer tablet set into a plastic frame balanced on tubular legs. But Halderman’s office isn’t especially large, either, so the machine takes up an inordinate, almost clumsy, amount of space. The machine is a Diebold AccuVote-TSX. In the jargon of election machinery, it is a DRE, which is short for direct recording electronic: Voters touch the screen to make their choices, which are then logged in the AccuVote’s memory. This is not exotic technology. DREs have been used in American elections for three decades, and the AccuVote and similar machines are being used in some 30 states this fall, when voters are determining, among other things, which par...

Finnegans releases Minnesota’s first CBD beer to the public tonight

The downtown Minneapolis brewery, which had previously distinguished itself from the crowd by donating 100% of its profits to charities fighting hunger, has now chosen to make its mark by throwing itself under the slow-rolling hemp legalization bus—starting with one very tasty, small-batch beer. Finnegans’ pale ale, called Kicked to the Herb, weighs in at 5.5% ABV and contains 13mg of CBD. It’s unique among other other Minnesota beers incorporating hemp products in that it’s brewed with full spectrum hemp oil, not hemp seeds. (If making beer out of oil and water sounds tricky, you’re not wrong; the precise science of how the hemp oil was clarified into just a handful of mason jars resembling young coconut water, ready for brewing, went over my head.) Though at first it may seem Finnegans is hopping on the CBD-is-hot-let’s-put-it-in-everything train, it quickly became apparent they were opening themselves up to be the sacrificial lamb in the quiet battle raging to legalize hemp, in all its myriad uses. The release of Kicked to the Herb “coincided” with a conference Minneapolis hosted from June 18-20, wherein regulators from all 50 states’ Departments of Agriculture wo...

If you’ve been watching BBC One’s War On Plastic, you’ll have heard the astonishing truths about

If you’ve been watching BBC One’s War On Plastic, you’ll have heard the astonishing truths about wet wipes which were revealed in Episode Two. Anita Rani found out that 90% of wet wipes contain plastic. From baby wipes to cleaning wipes to screen wipes to makeup wipes to glass wipes, the vast majority are made using plastic and will take over 100 years to biodegrade – during which time, they will have massively contributed to our climate crisis. And why do we love them so much? Because they are quick and easy to use and we have become a population of convenience Kings and Queens. From plastic-free biodegradable wipes, to washable cloths, there are plenty of other options when it comes to switching up what we use on a daily basis. Whether it’s for cleaning purposes or to remove makeup, these are the best ways to step away from using wipes. Best of all, it will save you money in the long-run too. It can be tempting in the kitchen to grab a wet wipe every time something spills. These reusable paper towels have been made from 100% bamboo and can be easily washed over and over again. These wipes have been made from an eco-friendly bamboo fabric and are also ch...

Can you build a working EM weapon from three microwave ovens? Apparently, yes. Should you do

Can you build a working EM weapon from three microwave ovens? Apparently, yes. Should you do so? Maybe not when the best safety gear you can muster is a metallized Mylar film fetish suit and a Hershey’s Kiss hat. Proving that language need not be a barrier to perfect understanding of bad ideas, the video below tells you all you need to know, even without subtitles in the non-Russian language of your choice. [KREOSAN]’s build is obnoxiously obvious — three magnetrons mounted on a tin can “resonator” with a foil-covered waveguide at the business end. The magnetrons are tickled by a stun-gun that’s powered by a pack of 18650 batteries. The video shows some “experiments”, like lighting up unpowered CFL bulbs from about 15 meters away and releasing the Blue Smoke from the electrical system of a running motor scooter. Assuming they weren’t added in post, the artifacts in the video belie the gun’s lack of shielding for the operator. We doubt any of the ad hoc safety gear would provide any protection from the resulting microwaves, but we also doubt that it matters much when things have gotten this far. We’re not too sure about this one — some of the zapping stunts look a little too conv...
