He used the great fortune he accumulated by a pharmaceutical invention to purchase large plots of land, and catering to the growing wealthy Catalan bourgeoisie class, developed Tibidabo Avenue, an elegant avenue running along the city’s highest peak.Continue reading

In December of 2016, Yahoo announced it had uncovered a massive data hack, compromising more than 1 billion user accounts. This was in addition to an earlier 2014 data breach, which had affected over 500 million users. While users may scream for blood when such a breach happens – usually blaming the owners of the affected websites – the real culprit can likely be found in their own bathroom mirrors.
You see, many data breaches are caused by one seemingly innocent common factor: computer and mobile device users reuse their passwords on multiple websites at an alarmingly high rate.
This Storage bunker once kept the warheads for the secret missile launch base in Plokštinė in Lithuania.
The site appears to have been Continue reading

Have you ever wanted to try porn in virtual reality? Secretly, we all have, and Pornhub just made it insanely easy. The world’s biggest adult site partnered with established VR porn store BaDoink to offer free 360-degree content. It is obviously NFSW.
If you’ve never tried VR porn, let me tell you: It is a weird, wild ride. I tested out the new site using both iOS and Android setups and a couple different headsets. The video I saw was not exactly virtual reality as the footage wasn’t entirely 3D. Pornhub does say that the new channel will have lots of full 360-degree content, so you really feel like you’re in some San Bernardino McMansion having sex with a stranger.
Feel might be the wrong word. It certainly looks like you’re there, though the resolution on the demo video that I saw was blurry at best. At worst, Continue reading
SEATTLE (AP) — Police in Seattle have released photos of the shotgun Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain used to kill himself more than two decades ago.
Seattle police cold case Detective Mike Ciesynski is shown holding Cobain’s gun at different angles in five photos posted to the police department’s website Wednesday.
The photos were taken in June 2015, added to the city of Seattle’s computer system March 3 and since then have been added to the investigative file, according to police.
It’s unclear why they took the photos last year or why they’re releasing them to the public at this time.
Cobain’s body was found in Seattle on April 8, 1994. An investigation determined that days earlier Cobain had gone into the greenhouse of his large home and taken a massive dose of heroin. He then shot himself with a 20-gauge shotgun. His death was ruled a suicide. Continue reading

Hong Kong’s Kowloon Walled City remained one of the strangest places on Earth. Demolished twenty-one years ago (March 1993 – April 1994) city was empire of little houses stacked on top of each other, connected by staircases snaking under dangling wires, through corridors so dark even police were rumored to be afraid of them. A virtually lawless labyrinth of crime, grime, commerce and hope. After all, the Walled City was a kind of historical accident. A former Qing dynasty fortress, it never fully came under the regulation Continue reading
