      Stephen King talks about his new novel, The Institute

      George Stephanopoulos asked Stephen King to describe his new (and 61st!) book, The Institute. His answer, "Tom Brown's Schooldays go to Hell." Sounds like my kind of book, considering Tom Brown's schooldays were already pretty awful.

      Startup that raised $197 million appears to have plagiarized the words, images, and design of a competitor

      A well-funded startup called Hims, which sells subscriptions to generic viagra and cialis, launched a digital doctor's visit service so people can get a prescription without having to visit a doctor. Weirdly, it looks like they lifted almost everything from the website of a competitor, called Roman. Check out the Medium article that's loaded with examples of the swipes here, which was written by the cofounder of Roman. Read the rest

      Someone made a single bitcoin transaction of over a billion dollars

      I would say 94,504 bitcoins is real folding money, buy you can't fold bitcoins. In any case, someone moved $1,018,147,900 worth of bitcoin between wallets and no one knows for sure who it was. The Token Analyst tweeted, "We took a look and saw that a large percentage of it could be traced to @HuobiGlobal addresses."

      I want to visit this exotic fruit stand in Florida

      If you're interested in learning about fruit you probably have never heard of, I recommend a book called The Fruit Hunters by Adam Leith Gollner. I read it over 10 years ago and often think about the odd fruits and delightful people who are obsessed with them.

      I was reminded of Gollner's book again when I saw this Great Big Story video about Robert Moehling, who has an exotic fruit stand in Florida. I really want to try some guanabana. The sign for it at Robert's fruit stand says, "Melts in your mouth like cotton candy. Virtually impossible to explain how wonderful it tastes. Best tasting fruit in the world!!!"

      After a kid was bullied for his homemade University of Tennessee T-shirt, his logo became official

      An elementary school student showed up to school wearing an orange T-shirt with a hand-drawn logo representing the University of Tennessee Volunteers and was bullied by the other students for it. When the university found out, they used his logo on an official T-shirt. ABC News reports that "demand for the product is so high that it crashed the school’s website."

      The University of Tennessee decided that they would take the boy’s design and make it an official school shirt with a portion of the proceeds being donated to STOMP Out Bullying, a national non-profit organization that is dedicated to eradicating bullying of all forms. “Thank you Vol Nation! Currently, our website has crashed due to the overwhelming support,” the online store tweeted. “We are working on the problem. Once the server restarts, we anticipate the issue to be resolved. #GoVols #EverywhereUT.”

      Low price on a Raspberry Pi 3 B+

      This is the lowest price I've seen for a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ single board computer. It has a 1.4GHz 64-bit quad-core processor, WiFi, Bluetooth, and Ethernet. These Pis are great for playing retro video games (emulators for almost every game platform from the 80s and 90s you can think of are available). This Amazon deal is 16% claimed so far. Once it's fully claimed the price will go back up. Read the rest

      Couple arrested after spending most of $120k that their bank accidentally put in their account

      Robert and Tiffany Williams of Pennsylvania were surprised to find $120,000 in their bank account. They didn't put it there. Who gave them the mysterious gift? Perhaps thinking it wise not to ask the bank and get an answer that would be disappointing, they instead went on a 2.5 week spending spree. With an apparent fondness for vehicles, they bought an SUV, a camper, a race car, and a trailer to tow the race car behind the camper.

      Imagine their surprise when the bank contacted them and informed them that their bank balance was negative $107,416. But we had $120,000 in our account, the confused couple told the bank, and we haven't spent it all yet. The bank explained the $120,000 had been accidentally deposited into their account and didn't belong to them. Please return all the money immediately, said the bank.

      According to Pennsylvania State Trooper Aaron Brown, Tiffany told the bank that “she no longer had the funds because she had already paid off bills. She told the bank her husband had spent a great portion of the funds and purchased a four-wheeler. She said she would speak to her husband and attempt to construct a repayment agreement.”

      You already know how this ends up, but for the sake of completion, here's how the Sun Gazette reported it:

      State police were contacted in early July after further attempts by the bank to communicate with the couple were unsuccessful.

      In separate interviews with investigators in late July, both Robert Williams, 36, and his wife “admitted to knowing the mislaid money did not belong to them, but they spent it anyway.”

      The two were arraigned Tuesday before District Judge Gary Whiteman on felony charges of theft and receiving stolen property, and released on $25,000 bail each.

      Grand jury declines to indict two people accused of assaulting a man for wearing a MAGA hat

      An Oregon grand jury declined to indict Adebisi Okuneye (23) and Leopold Hauser (22), who were accused of assaulting a gentleman named Luke Lenzner (34) for wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat at a Portland bar.

      An article in Oregon Live makes it clear Lenzer was spoiling for a fight:

      Lenzner’s account came under scrutiny after video surfaced that appeared to show him threatening and picking fights with patrons at a different bar earlier in the evening. During that confrontation, Lenzner also said he served in the military — a claim he later admitted wasn’t true.

      Though Okuneye and Hauser were ultimately charged with third-degree assault in their encounter with Lenzner, court documents painted a convoluted scene.

      Lenzner’s wife, who isn’t named in the records, told police that she and her husband had been to several bars that night and that she was curious how people in Portland would react to his “Make America Great Again” hat.

      She had asked her husband to wear the hat so she could see how people would treat him, according to a probable cause affidavit.

      From Raw Story:

      At one point in the video, Lenzner can be heard yelling, “I served for you… f*ck you!” at patrons.

      But when asked by KATU about his military service, Lenzner admitted that he never served but pointed out that he had family members who did.

      “He said his comment in the video about serving was said in the heat of the moment and that it came out wrong,” reports KATU.
