10 Bars at the End of the World

Wherever there are people is a good place to provide them with a place to meet and drink. Remember, one of the first things the Pilgrims did after landing at Plymouth was to  build a brewery. It’s the same with any other remote outpost. The southernmost bar in the world is at the Vernadsky Research Base on Galindez Island in Antarctica. It’s quite popular among the locals.
This tiny, one-room social area is located among the same research facilities where scientists first discovered the hole in the ozone layer. The bar was built by carpenters during the station's British stewardship, although they were supposed to use the wood to build a new pier for the complex. Instead they decided the base needed a place to drink.
The carpenters built the bar to recall the rustic pubs of their homeland with exposed wooden beams and aging photographs of Antarctica explorers. After the station’s purchase by the Ukraine in 1996, the bar became a firmly Ukrainian establishment where you can drink and cavort with researchers during the off hours. In addition to the standard libations, the bar also makes its own vodka using the surrounding glacial ice. The drink can be purchased for three dollars a glass or it is free with the donation of some womens’ undergarments to display behind the bar. Judging by the decor, there have been a number of free drinks. Essential drink: A glass of home-brewed vodka. (Your payment method is up to you.)
Other bars are located at Pitcairn Island, Tristan da Cunha, the Australian outback, and one in Nepal that I believe was once owned by Marion Ravenwood. Read about all ten extreme bars at Atlas Obscura.

The future of corporate cyberwar

"...white hat hacker Ang Cui demonstrates hacks on “embedded devices”—objects that contain computing systems but that you wouldn’t necessarily think of as computers.
At his office in New York, Cui shows us how he can turn an office phone or printer into a bugging device using a piece of malware he calls “funtenna.” This exploit makes the equipment transmit data over radio frequencies so it can be picked up by an antenna—without the hacker ever having to go near the device."
For example, you email a resume to a company. When the resume is viewed on one of their computers, code in the resume rewrites the firmware on their printer, which then morphs company telephones into transmitters.

Man named Weed faces charges for marijuana offenses

Three men from Belleville, Ontario, Canada, have been charged following an investigation focusing on the illegal production of marijuana in unsuspecting farmers’ fields. Members of the Belleville Police Service Drug Unit, Emergency Response Team and members of the OPP Drug Enforcement Unit conducted a traffic stop in Thurlow on Tuesday and arrested two men. Following the traffic stop, police executed three Controlled Drugs and Substances Act search warrants at residences in Belleville and Thurlow. The investigation and searches revealed the accused had planted marijuana plants throughout fields in the Thurlow ward of Belleville, in Thomasburg and the Melrose area.
As a result of the search warrants and the vehicle stop, police seized a quantity of marijuana plants, cash, digital weigh scales and a Ford F-150 pick-up truck. Adam Rushlow, 39, has been charged with five counts of production of marijuana, possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking and possession of proceeds of crime.
Jeff Gray, 45, faces three counts of production of marijuana and one count of possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking. And 34-year-old appropriately named Ian Weed has been charged with two counts of production of marijuana and possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking. Gray and Weed were released on a promise to appear with a future court date and Rushlow was detained in custody pending a show cause hearing.

Teacher in trouble after allegedly asking student 'Why don’t you lick me where I fart?'

Jennifer Elizabeth Green-Johnson, who teaches English at Dunnville Secondary School in Ontario, Canada, is facing disciplinary action after allegedly saying to a student: “Why don’t you lick me where I fart?”
Ms Green-Johnson has been a frequent visitor before the Ontario College of Teachers and the Grand Erie District School Board's disciplinary committees. Most recently she was suspended for 30 days last January for professional misconduct.
Among the most recent allegations, that date to 2015, are that she slapped a student on head, called him an idiot and told him to “grow some balls.” Ms Green-Johnson allegedly called one student a “bloody pedophile”. She also reportedly told a female student she "looked like a frumpy old lady today."
In one earlier disciplinary action, she slammed her students as stupids, idiots, gay and a “bitch”. She has also repeatedly been disciplined by her school board with disciplinary letters and suspended with, and without, pay. Ms Green-Johnson is currently suspended without pay.

Motorist and girlfriend hospitalized after she bit his penis when deer jumped in front of their car

A pair of young lovers ended up in hospital after engaging in some sexual activity whilst driving through the Waldviertel in north west Austria and crashing their car. The woman, who was sitting in the passenger seat, was giving her partner oral sex on a quiet country road not far from Krems when a deer suddenly jumped in front of the car, causing the driver to suddenly brake.
His girlfriend was taken by surprise, and accidentally bit into his penis. The emergency services were surprised to get a call saying that an ambulance was needed because of a “penis bite after a car crash.”
The couple were taken to hospital and the man received some minor surgery. Surgeons told him that the wound was only superficial and that his bitten manhood should soon be back in full working order.
