Amazon Fresh ghosts, TikTok pickled botulism & the secret world of superyachts 👀🍿🧃
Happy 2023 Wrecklings!
New year, new scams (and some from last year)!
''She was an ABC News producer. She also was a corporate operative''- Didn’t see the “To Catch a Predator” and Chris Hansen twist coming.
''Caroline Calloway's latest self-proclaimed scam is here''- Curious about how much this scam earned her.
''The Haves and the Have-Yachts''- This is a fascinating look at a world I can’t even imagine ever even existing.
''Atari’s Shambling, Zombie Corpse Is Once Again In Trouble''- The sass through this entire piece is brilliant.
''LastPass says hackers stole customers’ password vaults''- They had ONE job. Literally.
Elon’s continuing to throw his temper tantrums:
''‘Deepfakes’ of Celebrities Have Begun Appearing in Ads, With or Without Their Permission''- Our reality keeps getting closer to something out of Black Mirror.
''Inside Roblox’s Criminal Underworld, Where Kids Are Scamming Kids''- My Neopets account got hacked when I was twelve, so I sympathize.
''A TikTok creator’s homemade pickled products have sparked online conversation surrounding food safety''- Ah, you can now order botulism off TikTok. Did we learn nothing from Pink Sauce??
''Self-proclaimed “ChiefsAHolic” arrested on armed robbery charge''- Well, he certainly did go to insane lengths to be able to afford game tickets, apparently.
“You Now Need a Government ID to Access P0rnhub in Louisiana”- Considering Louisiana has pretty loose gun laws, I don’t know if this development surprises me or not.
“Prosecutors in Brazil reopening criminal fraud case against George Santos”- As if this weren’t bad enough, seems like his mother also didn’t die of anything related to 9/11, like he initially claimed.
“Celine Dion Was Excluded From Rolling Stone's "200 Greatest Singers Of All Time" List. Her Fans Aren't Happy.”- Okay, AND neither Madonna, Cher, Nat King Cole, or Tony Bennett made it on? What in the GenZ?
''Amazon Fresh stores have gone stale''- Amazon is just like us, ignoring its problems hoping that they’ll go away!
''People Are Describing Chaotic Scenes Inside Airports After Southwest Canceled More Than 2,700 Flights''- Much like when United concussed and dragged a doctor off a plane, I’ll see these things and vow to never fly that airline but every single one of them is terrible so… that’s impossible.
🔏''Nonstop partying, lavish spending, and sexual-harassment accusations: Inside the self-destruction of Pollen, the music startup once worth $800 million''- YIKES. Somehow this makes the Frye Festival saga look tame.
