 Netflix's new site is a giant
 "f*ck you" to Comcast and
 Time Warner
 Netflix launched a site late Wednesday
 night called Fast.com, where- in one
 click - anyone browsing the internet
 can see how fast their internet speed is.
 Although it's great for consumers,
 some internet providers might not be
 happy about the new website.

 Okay, so here's why Netflix speedtest is
 so brilliant.
 Most of us know about Speedtest.net,
 right? Well Comcast and Time Warner
 know about it too. They know
 customers use it to check to see if
 they're getting what they are paying for.
 Comcast techs even tell customers to
 check their speed with Speedtest.net.
 So, to make sure people think they are
 getting good speeds, Comcast and
 Time Warner prioritize traffic going to
 Speedtest.net. When you check your
 speed there it's artificially inflated. That
 is NOT the speed you are getting when
 you browse tumblr and that is definitely
 not the speed you get when you watch
 Netflix.

 Comcast and Time Warner can not
 artificially inflate the results by
 prioritizing traffic to Fast.net unless
 they also prioritize traffic to Netflix, and
 they definitely do not want to do that.

England, Memes, and New York: Letter From Titanic Passenger Sold For $166,000 at Auction @balleralert On board R.M S'TITANIC e2てぇ 3 Letter From Titanic Passenger Sold For $166,000 at Auction -by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A letter written just one day before the Titanic sank has been sold for $166,000 at auction. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The letter was recovered from a passenger's body, and is believed to be one of the last letters written before the ship hit the iceberg and sank into the Atlantic. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Surpassing expectations, the British auction house Henry Aldridge & Son predicted the item would go for £60,000 to £80,000 ($79,000 to $106,000). The winner of Saturday's auction name wasn't released. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The author of the letter was an American salesman named Alexander Oskar Holverson, he wrote the letter to his mother. Sadly, the letter shared Holverson's hopes to reach his destination: "If all goes well we will arrive in New York Wednesday A.M." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What makes this letter so special is it was written on April 13, 1912, one day before the ship sank midway through its voyage from Southampton, England to New York. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Holverson describes the world's largest built ship inside the letter. "This boat is giant in size and fitted up like a palacial hotel," wrote Holverson. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Holverson died when the Titanic went down along with 1,500 other passengers and crew. About 700 people survived including Holverson's wife, Mary. Holverson's body and other belongings were found days later in the Atlantic.

Drugs, Guns, and Irs: DEA DEA DEA ENCE FVACEENDENCE ENIDENCE EVIDENCIE 2 DEA Feds Seize $22M Worth Of Weed Shipped From Cali To NYC For "Operation Green Giant" 👀🍁💰 Local police working with federal agents arrested ten alleged members of a Bronx gang this week, accusing the perpetrators of shipping $22 million worth of marijuana from California to New York. According to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District, the alleged gang members sent over 6,600 pounds of pot from California to residences, businesses, and eventually stash houses in the city and in New Rochelle. Officials called the venture "Operation Green Giant," probably because marijuana is green, and 6,600 pounds is a large amount of the plant, which is legal in a number of states. Agents with the DEA, IRS, and U.S. Homeland Security worked in tandem with the NYPD to make the busts on Wednesday and Thursday, yielding three handguns, a sawed-off shotgun, ammunition, cash, and cocaine, in addition to hundreds of pounds of marijuana. "As alleged, these defendants conspired to ship millions of dollars’ worth of drugs across the country for eventual sale in New York City," acting Manhattan U.S. Attorney Joon H. Kim said in a statement yesterday. "Searches of apartments where the defendants allegedly resided uncovered guns and ammunition, multiple kilograms of cocaine, hundreds of pounds of marijuana, and thousands of dollars in cash." Officials say the alleged gang members started running the operation in March 2016. The defendants have been charged with conspiracy to distribute narcotics and use of firearms in furtherance of narcotics trafficking. The top charge could net the accused life in prison, if convicted. (Via @gothamist) @worldstar WSHH

Being Alone, Ass, and Bad: I'm a 21 year-old male. I was out running my 2 miles. Headphones in, music playing, minding my own business. I round the corner at about the halfway point of the run and I see this big black duck looking at me. As I get closer, think to myself, "Man, that's a brave duck, why isn't he running away?" I keep running and realize the duck not only isn't afraid of me or running away, he's running right at me. So I stop and squat down, thinking maybe he was hurt and needed help or something. This bitch ass giant fucking black duck takes a huge bite out of my leg. Like, not playing, drew blood kinda bite I'm thinking to myself, "What the fuck?" So I'm like, maybe he's just an asshole and I keep running think he will leave me alone. I start running again and the faster Irun, the faster he chases me. I start sprinting and he is literally flying behind me attacking me. I'm thinking, "Ive got enough fucking problems in my life as it is man, I dont need this shit so I stop running again kinda like in disbelief trying to figure out what to do. In all my years of being a person, Ive never trained for this This little punk ass duck is chomping on my ankles and it's actually really hurting. He starts grabbing my shoelaces and untying them as I'm trying to run backwards away from him. Weve covered a quarter mile at this point. I try picking him up and throwing him back away from me every time he lunges for blood. I'm thinking, "How the fuck am I gonna explain this if I have to go to the doctor for a duck attack? I'm a grown ass man. This isbullshit." I try running again and he keeps flying after me. I'm at a loss. I dont know what to do at this point. I'm manage to get my phone and start texting my girlfriend, asking her what to do. Am I really gonna have to kill this duck to get away? Like, I don't want to, but I might have to actually fucking kick this duck or grab it by the neck? Seriously?" We have covered 3/4 of a mile at this point. He bites me again and I drop my phone. I pick it up quickly. Who do I call? I've got fucking scars and cuts all over me. While I'm debating whether stand-your-ground laws apply to ducks, I hear a noise; Someone else was outside walking on an adjacent street and came to see what all of the commotion was This was a big mistake. The duck smelled blood, and gave up attacking me to chase after my savior. I saw my window and booked it home running the last half mile in 2:50 flat. I feel kinda bad, that duck has probably killed that dude by now. The last saw of him was the look I took over my shoulder running away as he made the same mistake I did, looking down to see if the duck was hurt worth the read
