If you think that technology is already giving free rein for twats and psychos to make a mess of everything, you really havent seen anything yet, experts have warned today. The Internet of Things, which has come of age in recent years and is expected to consist of about 50 billion objects by 2020, is going to create a clusterfuck of quite unimaginable proportions.
Basically the Internet of Things means the inter-networking of physical devices, vehicles, buildings and other items embedded with electronics or network connectivity, enabling them to collect and exchange data, said Professor James Archer of the University of Durham.
Imagine that app that supposedly lets you control your central heating from your mobile, except it doesnt but instead causes the boiler to explode because you were too thick to programme it properly, only a thousand times worse. Then imagine it being connected to everything else, so that any spotty kid with a computer can hack into your hopelessly unprotected home network and dick around with everything you own if you tick him off for taking a piss on your car.
Some pessimists are fearful that the Internet of Things may lead to hacking into sensors to make other peoples lights come on at random times, or your boss being able to monitor exactly how much time you spend crying in the toilet. More optimistic scientists believe that it will give errant husbands a plausible excuse for the trail of orders for Gimp outfits on the credit cards if someone forwards this to their wives. Archer, however, thinks both sides are missing the point.
Put in sensors and actuators and the technology will come part of much wider cyber-physical systems, he said. Smart grids, smart homes, intelligent transportation, smart cities all operated by fuckwits or angry nerds who have never been within five yards of a vagina. The moment in history when ultra-connected devices intersect with ultra-disconnected brains. Someone shoot me now, please, and good luck to the dolphins when they come to sort this all out.
LOS ANGELES YouTube star Logan Paul
issued yet another apology today after posting a vlog in which he
opened up a casket in a local cemetery titled UNBOXING IN
The video, deleted less than three hours after
being uploaded, showed Paul in Westwood Village Memorial Park in
Los Angeles. Paul can be seen digging up a casket and opening it
with a crowbar while his friends blew air horns.
Woah check out this killer swag, Paul said in the video while examining what appears to be a wedding ring. So, we got a dude inside who looks like he hasnt hit the gym in years. Whats up, bro? Whats with those skinny arms, bro?
Paul then proceeded to remove the body from the
casket and deadlift it, shouting, Get it? DEAD-lifting! Then, Pauls
friends danced around him and played vuvuzelas to the tune
of Despacito while Paul moved the corpses mouth to mime the Justin Beiber
Two hours after the video had been deleted, Paul posted an apology on Twitter.
Lets start with this. Im sorry. Again. I never
meant to offend anybody when I posted a video where I unbox a
coffin, check out the cool collectibles inside, take out the
corpse, and deadlift it. LOL! Sorry, just remembering that joke.
Fuckin classic. Anyway, all I wanted to do was raise awareness
about death, which is a very serious issue because if you are dead
you cant like and subscribe. #logang #maverick
YouTube issued a statement in response to the
We do not condone Mr. Pauls behavior even
though we do profit from it, a YouTube spokesperson said. Mr. Paul
must take responsibility for the broad platform we allow him to
abuse time and time again. At this point, we are prepared to have
meetings to consider weighing the option of potentially
demonetizing his channel. We implore Mr. Paul to explore more
advertiser friendly content, such as plagiarized video game reviews
or monetized reaction videos to mass shootings.
At press time, Paul had just announced a charity boxing match between him and the corpse hed dug up.
Home secretary Sajid Javid has come in for fierce criticism after he said this on Twitter about the case of a grooming gang in Huddersfield that raped and abused girls as young as 11 and was found guilty on Friday of more than 120 offences against 15 girls.
These sick Asian paedophiles are finally facing justice. I want to commend the bravery of the victims. For too long, they were ignored. Not on my watch. There will be no no-go areas https://t.co/cZGqDOxt4u

OTTUMWA, Iowa A historic moment was captured by Time magazine today, as all 24 of Netflixs paid users gathered in one place for a cover story, the first time the streaming services entire clientele has been assembled at one time.
This is really great, said Brandon Dygert, whos $13.99 monthly premium plan is being used by an estimated eight million others around the world. Its so cool to meet other people who love Netflix as much as we do, and they have been so nice in flying us all out here to do this.
All 24 of the special guests concurred that Netflix went above and beyond making them feel comfortable, and several were surprised at the low number of overall subscribers.
I thought there were way more of us, to be honest, said Nancy Chalmers, who flew in from Boston. I guess Im like four percent of the viewers? That doesnt seem right at all.
Chalmers, who has provided her Netflix login information to several coworkers and friends, as well as the entire New England area, was further surprised at the appearance of Reed Hastings, Netflix founder and CEO, who spoke to the group.
Generally we dont divulge important figures like ratings, or numbers of paid members, said Hastings, speaking to the 24 users after the momentous photo was taken. But I will make an exception today and confirm that what we have assembled here this afternoon is the entire paid subscriber base of the number one streaming service in the world. Thank you for keeping us on top!
Stars of several popular Netflix franchises joined Hastings at the ceremony. Millie Bobby Brown, star of the beloved hit series Stranger Things, thanked the gathered users for their loyalty.
These last few years have been a whirlwind, said Brown, who plays fan favorite Eleven on the acclaimed show. Without your three hundred bucks every month, Netflix would not be able to provide the amazing shows and movies we all love so much. I want to thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart.
The cover story is scheduled to be released next week. In related news, 60 Minutes has announced that this Sunday CBS will be airing their anticipated interview with the countrys lone paying HBO Now user.

Donald Trump announced today via Twitter that he has purchased $584 million dollars worth of lottery tickets. The strategy of obtaining every possible number combination ensures that the former comedian and current acting president will win the record $1.6 billion Mega Millions jackpot. Thats nearly a 200 percent return on my investment in one day, tweeted Trump. #Wow
Social media giant Facebook has confirmed that unofficial report that it only hired former Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg as Head of Global Operations in order to be able to blame him every time they have a system failure are absolutely correct. Clegg will be brought out to apologise in public for every breach of security by Russian hackers or a Primary 3 class doing simple computer studies manages to wipe the private details of 50 million subscribers but not before having posted them online for the entire world to see.
Explaining the rationale behind the move, Brian ONeil, Facebooks HR Director told reporters: This is a great strategic appointment for us. Nick Clegg is widely known to have been to blame for nearly everything since the time he sold British university students down the river to shamelessly further his own blind political ambitions. Man Uniteds terrible start to the season, the Strictly Curse, the Brexit Shambles and Little Mixall Nicks fault. Just remember, folks #NickCleggsFault. Brilliant!
The Department for Work and Pensions have blamed a ceramic boy with callipers and a haircut like Jimmy Carr for the fact that tens of thousands of people have been without vital funds. Allegedly, the retro-charity box had been stuffed full of forgotten paperwork, such as disability claims, Windrush apologies and a workable solution for Brexit.
The child shaped box was left unattended outside a tobacconist in Battersea, which many passers-by had simply assumed was a memorial to Janette Krankie. Only after a DWP inspector had designated the inanimate figure as fit to work did anyone ask Why is a mini Roger Federer standing on one leg?
A DWP spokeswoman explained: OK, 180,000 people are owed payment arrears, but just as many arent. So I think we can all agree, this has been an overwhelming success. And to anyone who has committed suicide, while waiting for benefits, I say this better luck next time.
NEW YORK Up-and-coming crust punk comedian Gil Ratboy Johnson tried to entertain audiences last night at The Creek with nuanced takes on landlords, dating, and dumpster food, according to apathetic audience members.
Seriously, what is the deal with dumpster food? Johnson repeatedly asked. Its like, people just throw out all this good shit, you know? Sure, theres some dirt, and maybe a couple bites gone but nothing you wont find in a restaurant. And yet, Im gross for eating it! Knock the shit off, and bon apptit, motherfucker!
Unfortunately, the audience struggled to relate to Johnsons seemingly out-of-control lifestyle.
It was weird, said audience member James Webb. All of his jokes were punk takes on done-to-death bits. Like, how crusties be squattin, am I right? Or if we ever noticed how hardcore kids danced like this, but crust punks danced like this. And when he bombed, he got pissed at us for not laughing he said he was too real for us.
When his ask of where his Leftver Crack fans were was met with devastating silence, the nascent comedian allegedly snapped.
He spiked the microphone on the stage which caused all this feedback and called the audience a bunch of fucking posers, said fellow comedian and host Carmine Flynn. It was tough going up after him that microphone smelled real bad once he was done.
Reportedly, venue management was not amused by Johnsons set and outburst.
We tried to stop him from leaving after he broke that mic, but he was already gone by the time I grabbed security, said promoter Calista Daniels. I dont think Im gonna book anymore crust punk comics as it is, were probably gonna have to fumigate the stage and green room. Youd think hed have smelled better with all that fucking dental floss patchwork on his vest.
At press time, Johnson was spotted with his head down and feet up in a dumpster, rehearsing his TV-ready tight five set on a family of confused rats.

Stinging nettles across the country started wilting, turning black and literally losing their sting in early September. A dog walker in Surrey was the first to notice the phenomenon: I thought thank f@$k for that. There was a big patch of the bastards over by the railway line. Always used to catch my ankles in the summer. Glad to see the back of them.
While the Head of the Botany department at Kings College, was circumspect when asked how many botanists had been assigned to identifying the virus. Its not a priority at the moment. Our thoughts are concentrated on finding a good venue for this years Christmas party
By December it is estimated that therell be no nettles left anywhere in the country, something that prompted a Friends of the Earth spokesperson to issue a stark warning. A nation without stinging nettles would probably mean a reduction in, I dont know, moths maybe. And that could have a devastating effect on moth eaters and whatever moths eat. On the other hand, no more stinging nettles!
The extinction of one species can often have a knock-on effect on others. Asked whether the demise of stinging nettles would result in the disappearance of dock leaves, long reputed to have soothing effects for anyone stung by the all-pervasive nettle, one botanist merely shrugged. That whole dock leaves thing proved as useful to many people as knowing that a man can break a swans wing, or whatever it is. Anyone seen a dock leaf? No. Know what they look like? No. I dont care if theyre wiped out too for all the good theyve ever done.

A vote for an independent is a vote for unpredictability, Australias temporary Prime Minister told voters in Wentworth today.
Mr Morrison, who overthrew previous Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, who himself overthrew previous Prime Minister Tony Abbott, said only the Liberal Party could offer stability in Wentworth.
Independents may look like an appealing option, but theyre an unknown quantity. When you vote for a major party like the Liberals, you know who youre going to get, Morrison said.
Mr Morrison, who is the nations fifth Prime Minister since 2013, said what his party offered was stability. Nothing says stability like a hastily called byelection brought about by the knifing of a sitting Prime Minister.
The Wentworth byelection will be held on Saturday, with the general election expected next month.
