Lucky bastard finds a WWII Enigma Machine at a Flea Market for $114.00

http://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/wwii-enigma-machine-found-flea-market-sells-51000-180964053/

I would've played with that thing for a LONG time before I sold it for a measly $50k

If humans could live forever, all the really good sports, climbing, backcountry skiing, skydiving... you name it; they would just fall from fashion.  The best moments in life are those that remind one that time is limited.

Listening to a BBC story about women fighting IS.  I really love the idea of these guys getting their asses handed to them by women.  Really most drive them nuttier.

Some shitknuckle spoofed my phone number, called my bank with my credit card information, and I only found out because I got the TFA code texted to me.
