It simply landed in someone's yard. I panicked and went back home ASAP. Spent the rest of my afternoon worried if I nearly scared someone to death with a bagged rat or if I accidentaly infected someone with leptospyrosis.

TL;DR: accidentaly threw a rat on someone's yard. :/
Excuse me? I found a dead rat in my yard last year. You killed my dog. And also my grandma. I hope you have a good lawyer cuz I sure do

Pretty much everything former anti-videogame nutcase Jack Thompson did like bringing a slingshot to court when he was trying to get the game Bully banned to sending pornographic material to judges for reasons that I can't remember and for some reason sending a letter to the mother of the CEO of Take Two.

This guy for some reason is completely obsessed with banning video games or whatever. He said that The Sims 2 (yes, The Sims 2) was worse than GTA San Andreas "Hot Coffee" because he claimed that he saw in the game characters had modeled body parts or something like that. He probably saw a mod or something but got triggered at it.

There's an article about it here on GameSpot. https://www.gamespot.com/articles/si.../1100-6129609/ (warning, text is kinda NSFW)

I remember hearing about that all I did was laugh at it, he must have been really desperate for attention from anyone who would listen to him to go after The Sims 2, it was a mod that set him off, someone should teach Thompson the meaning of user generated content, IIRC all Maxis did was give people the tools to mod the game and said go nuts produce whatever you like.

Rumor has it that Thompson also targeted Nintendogs after someone created a mod called Hot Biscuit that let the dogs do certain things, while I can't find any mention of him going after Nintendogs on a Google search I do remember him doing it something about how children's minds would be corrupted or whatever bull he said at the time, kids are more likely to see dogs doing that in real life than they are in a game, years ago when I was on holiday somewhere foreign I forget where I walked past a restaurant one evening where two dogs were doing it a lot of children were watching and laughing no corrupted minds there, one kid asked their parents what the dogs were doing the kids dad said CPR

Google Nintendogs Hot Biscuit and you'll see it.

I started playing Factorio again. Very dumb decision. I can get lost in that game for hours, not exactly having fun, but unable to leave either. And I know this and I've known this for years, but a podcast I listen to mentioned it again recently and I somehow found myself giving it another try. And of course immediately spent eight hours on it.

Right now I've deleted the game from my hard disk. Let's see whether I'll remember to not play it for longer this time.

The decision by Coca Cola to change the coke can from what it's been for the last 30 years or more to a can that's a clone of Red Bull cans.

The old can was just fine the way it was, why did they have to fix what wasn't broken.

I saw a video on Facebook of a woman out walking with her kids, while out walking she came across some roadworks which had temporary traffic lights set up, she took the instruction to stop while light is red literally and stayed standing on the footpath until the light changed to green.

Another video I saw years ago was of a woman on an escalator which stopped when she was halfway down, instead of walking down the last few steps she stood there and decided to wait for the power to come back on, even though she was repeatedly told that she didn't have to wait for the power to come back on and that she could just walk down the last few steps, she insisted on staying where she was standing until the power came back on.

This thread reminds me of some stupid stuff I do or that I did, currently I can only remember two. One is a weird habit of blowing ice cream to see if it will get less cold.

Another one was years ago when I was in elementary school, I had sharpened a pencil and for whatever reason I decided to slide it across my hand, there I had a huge cut across my hand, fortunately it wasn't a deep cut, but it definitely did sting.

This reminds me of a friend who stabbed my little finger with a pencil and the grey dot is still there after 8 years.
