Ben Siller looked ridiculous on a recent afternoon, standing on a downtown Denver street corner with a giant device clamped to his face sniffing the air for odorous evidence of marijuana.
“What are you doing?” asked Jimmy Smith, owner of Higher Expectations dispensary south of Mississippi Avenue near the South Platte River.
In the dawning age of legal marijuana in Denver, the city is getting more and more complaints about the unmistakable odor wafting through the streets — a skunky, herbal scent that has prompted dozens of calls to the city’s hotline. That’s when Siller with his Nasal Ranger device jumps into action.

When Christians get political, they often do so because they believe that they have God on their side. This is true whether they are progressive or conservative, and throughout most of American history there have been both. (You’d think that the conflicting claims about what God wants would lead to more doubting, but here we are.) Looking over the long history of people claiming to be speaking for God’s wishes, it quickly becomes evident that Christians are frequently on the wrong side of history. Here are 10 things that American Christians of the conservative stripe got completely wrong when they were so sure they were speaking on God’s behalf.
2) Women’s suffrage
4) Pain relief for childbirth
9) School prayer
10) Marriage equality
They missed one: the belief that our country’s founding fathers were Christians.
Have it blend into your fashionable gang tattoo so no one notices it
Motorola has applied for a patent of a microphone with a tranceiver and power supply that is designed to be tattooed onto your throat. The idea is to capture vibrations directly from your larynx in order to cut out background noise — while eliminating something else you could lose, we imagine. The skin-borne device could communicate with your handset or other portable device by Bluetooth, NFC or other wireless protocols and would pack a battery that “may or may not be rechargeable.”

DEMING, N.M. (CBS Las Vegas) — A New Mexico man claims he was anally probed several times by police and medical officials following a traffic stop.
The victim, David Eckert, claims in a federal lawsuit that officers from the Deming Police Department pulled him over after he failed to make a complete stop at a stop sign outside a Walmart this past January.
When Eckert got out of his car, officers indicated that they believed he was in possession of drugs – in his anal cavity.
“They say when he stepped out of his car he was standing in a manner that looked as if he was clinching his buttocks,” Shannon Kennedy, Eckert’s attorney, told KOB-TV.
A judge granted a search warrant to perform an anal cavity search on Eckert shortly after he was taken into custody. KOB reports that a doctor refused to perform the anal cavity search at a Deming emergency room, saying it was “unethical.” Eckert was then transported to Gila Regional Medical Center, where his alleged trauma began. According to the lawsuit and medical records, Eckert’s abdominal area was x-rayed twice, doctors stuck fingers in his anus twice, he had three enemas inserted anally and had a colonoscopy performed. No drugs were ever found during the search.
Eckert did not consent to any of the searches.
Officers were overheard telling the suspect “Them Chili Peppers aint for eatin’ son.”
*Update: In an evil twist to the story, victim gets billed $6000.00 for the procedure in what could possibly be a racially motivated incident.
Three years ago, security consultant Dragos Ruiu was in his lab when he noticed something highly unusual: his MacBook Air, on which he had just installed a fresh copy of OS X, spontaneously updated the firmware that helps it boot. Stranger still, when Ruiu then tried to boot the machine off a CD ROM, it refused. He also found that the machine could delete data and undo configuration changes with no prompting. He didn’t know it then, but that odd firmware update would become a high-stakes malware mystery that would consume most of his waking hours.
In the following months, Ruiu observed more odd phenomena that seemed straight out of a science-fiction thriller. A computer running the Open BSD operating system also began to modify its settings and delete its data without explanation or prompting. His network transmitted data specific to the Internet’s next-generation IPv6 networking protocol, even from computers that were supposed to have IPv6 completely disabled. Strangest of all was the ability of infected machines to transmit small amounts of network data with other infected machines even when their power cords and Ethernet cables were unplugged and their Wi-Fi and Bluetooth cards were removed. Further investigation soon showed that the list of affected operating systems also included multiple variants of Windows and Linux.
“We were like, ‘Okay, we’re totally owned,’” Ruiu told Ars. “‘We have to erase all our systems and start from scratch,’ which we did. It was a very painful exercise. I’ve been suspicious of stuff around here ever since.”
In a bizarre case of liberals eating their own, the US Postal Service will destroy First Lady Michelle Obama’s series of “just move” stamps due to safety concerns.
It’s unknown exactly how many stamps will have to be destroyed, but Linn’s News is reporting it is the entire run of the commemorative stamps. The run is likely in the millions.
The terribly dangerous images in question show children performing a cannonball dive into a pool, skateboarding without kneepads and doing a headstand without a helmet. The stamps were produced without being approved by the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition and the horribly risky behavior depicted on the stamps were only discovered after the USPS marketing chief asked the First Lady to take part in the ceremony inaugurating the initiative.
Experts contacted were relieved the stamps would be destroyed.
“This will save countless of lives. I’m glad we caught this in time, or it could have been disastrous to our children. The influences from images on postage can be very tempting to young minds,” nobody at all ever said.
In fact, all O’bots should be required to wear safety helmets 24 hours a day 7 days a week. You know what they say…Better Safe Than Sorry!
