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:
''Elon Musk brought his mom to a meeting with advertisers where he tweeted about Trump. He later fired an exec who didn't find the tweet funny, report says.''
“We Spoke To Twitter Troll Juniper About Manufacturing Moral Panics, Creating “Goblin Mode,” And Dealing With Elon Musk”
''‘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.
