Attack Of The Clones
In the time of fake news and political social media sabotage, how can we know if an account’s followers are real? This worrisome article tells the story of a teenager whose online identity was stolen, cloned, and used by a bot account apparently purchased through Devumi. There’s a bunch of alleged customers outed here too, from actors to businessmen and even sports personalities.  We don’t know what’s worse, the legal grey area surrounding bots, or the fact that social media companies aren’t doing enough about it.

Musk's Boring Company Heats Up
Elon Musk is back at it again with the answer to the burning question “Where do I legally purchase a low-cost flamethrower?” Musk’s The Boring Company has begun pre-orders for a $500 flamethrower. Let us just reiterate that for you. You can purchase a freakin’ flamethrower for $500. Be quick, though! This hot product has already sold $4 million dollars worth (we’ll let Elon do the math in regards to how many flamethrowers that is.)  What would you want with a flamethrower, you ask? Well, we’ll let Mr. Musk himself answer that, too.

The footage of the clean little rodent was captured by a Peruvian DJ and has drawn a divisive range of comments. Look, he even gets in under his armpits!
Do you think he'll trim his whiskers, too?
