by Patrick George

Ahh, it’s Friday at last. The end of a long week. The end of a long two weeks for most of your humble, hardworking Jalopnik staff. Time to log off, kick back, crack open a Shiner Bock and... oh look! The low-ass bridge in Boston got another truck! Hooray!

It Looks Like Ducati's Taking On Harley-Davidson With A Full-Fat Cruiser

by Andrew P Collins on lanesplitter, shared by Michael Ballaban to Jalopnik

The Ducati Diavel was the company’s first motorcycle that didn’t put pure performance first. Now, the next iteration seems to have been spied, and it’s looking even more like something you’d ride with no shirt under your leather vest.

Public Service Announcement: The Mystery Machine Is Not A VW Microbus

by Jason Torchinsky

Everyone’s at least somewhat familiar with the Scooby-Doo series of animated low-stakes real estate mysteries, correct? The one where a group of nomadic teens in a van roam the country stopping (usually) real estate developers from using Halloween costumes to force the sale of properties? You know what kind of van they drove? I bet you don’t.

by Tavarish on Car Buying, shared by Patrick George to Jalopnik

Hacking a 'Smart' Sniper Rifle

by Soulskill
An anonymous reader writes: It was inevitable: as soon as we heard about computer-aimed rifles, we knew somebody would find a way to compromise their security. At the upcoming Black Hat security conference, researchers Runa Sandvik and Michael Auger will present their techniques for doing just that. "Their tricks can change variables in the scope's calculations that make the rifle inexplicably miss its target, permanently disable the scope's computer, or even prevent the gun from firing." In one demonstration they were able to tweak the rifle's ballistic calculations by making it think a piece of ammunition weighed 72 lbs instead of 0.4 ounces. After changing this value, the gun tried to automatically adjust for the weight, and shot significantly to the left. Fortunately, they couldn't find a way to make the gun fire without physically pulling the trigger.

How To Go On A Fancy-Ass Cruise Without Going Broke

by Tavarish on Adequate Man, shared by Nicole Conlan to Jalopnik

We all have that friend who just loves to tell about how they love traveling. He’s the same friend that doesn’t realize that not everyone has a seven-figure trust fund and can afford to celebrate destination half-birthdays. Some people, like you and I, work for our money. Here’s a few tips on how to show up that cackling brat and get a sunburn without the burning through your bank account.

Seattle's tent cities

by Cory Doctorow

Saw this first-hand in Seattle. Not a great solution, but better than no shelter at all.

Seattle has America's fourth-largest homeless population and virtually everything homeless people do is illegal in Washington State, which has added 288 new offenses related to homelessness to its statute-books since 2000 -- amazingly, this did not convince those homeless people to stop being homeless.

What I Learned Riding 1000 Miles On A Motorcycle In 24 Hours

by Jerry Smith on lanesplitter, shared by Patrick George to Jalopnik

When I first heard about an under-the-radar bunch of road riders who rode 1000 miles in 24 hours or less just to earn membership in something called the Iron Butt Association, I thought, A thousand miles? In one day? That’s what airplanes are for. What’s wrong with these guys? So I decided to find out.

The Rules Of Riding On The Back Of Another Man's Motorcycle

by Patrick George on lanesplitter, shared by Damon Lavrinc to Jalopnik

Besides chain smoking, or being a 1960s movie star, nothing makes you look sexier than riding a motorcycle. But when you’re a man it’s awfully hard to look cool on the back of another man’s bike, an unceremonious position referred to as “riding bitch.”

Attention Police Officers: Please Enforce The Left Lane Law

by Doug DeMuro

So I’m driving along the other day in the left lane of a major interstate highway, and I get up behind a Honda CR-V with “Conserve Wild Resources” license plates. These license plates have a picture of an owl on them. It was at this moment when I knew I would soon be passing on the right.

Facts You May Not Know About One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

by Lisa Marcus

Image: United Artists

It's hard not to be moved by Milos Foreman's classic One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. The film can lead even the most hardened of filmgoers from laughter to tears. Yet it's not only the audience that is emotionally affected by the material. One cast member even had his sanity questioned by the end of the shoot.

The place in which the actors lived during production didn't help the situation. In fact, all of the actors who played patients in the film lived at the Oregon State Hospital psychiatric ward during the shoot. The men brought personal effects to their sleeping spaces, spent their days inside the ward and regularly interacted with the psychiatric patients there. That's more than a flyover — it's moving right in.
