It's a video. I misplaced my mpeg-to-ascii converter for you, sorry.

Intermeshed gears.

Still not an ASCII video, though.

Default Male chastity belt hacked

At first, I couldn't decide whether this was a joke or not. However, following the links shows there actually is such a device.


Apparently, it's a bluetooth enabled device for males that locks or unlocks it. Nothing could go wrong there. Well, it was hacked and remotely locked by the hackers demanding 270 dollars to unlock!

We played that "instant freeze" demo with soft drinks and any carbonated stuff many times when our little LaurV was in school, as "science experiments", we both liked cold drinks, and use to put the bottles in the freezer, take them out later and open the lid. The evaporation of the carbon dioxide (bubbling), as well as the sharp pressure drop, cools the liquid even more, and you can really see the "instant" part in "instant freezing" (i.e. much faster than in the shown videos).
