Its not appropriate to put current event items in the "Putin without a shirt" thread.

Lots of hacking of news twitter accounts lately. 60 Minutes was hacked a week or so ago and a bunch of CBS News accounts (including local affiliates and O&Os) were hacked over the last week.

Twitter should probably be asking verified users what Ed's last name is.

60 Minutes tweeted out that they were working on a story for this sunday (would have been last sunday) about how Obama is in bed with Al Qaeda affiliates in Syria.

Nasa Mars Rover Accidentally Draws Penis On Red Planet

Image

Nasa's $800m Mars Exploration Rovers have accidentally drawn a penis.

The twin exploration vehicles Spirit and Opportunity were launched nine years ago, in an effort to search the surface of Mars for signs of water erosion and possibly even life.

According to Nasa, since then the rovers have driven over more than 10km of Martian land, directed by teams back on Earth combined with autonomous cameras designed to avoid potential problems with the terrain.

It appears that part of the robots' programming involves spinning in tight circles to test nearby terrain and find new routes.

Humorously, depending on your age perhaps, that has the unfortunate consequence of drawing a certain shape on the surface, which when discovered by Reddit essentially crashed Nasa's website.

The image was posted on Nasa's site and appears to be a genuine picture from the Martian surface - albeit one taken at an unfortunate angle.

It's not clear which of the rovers drew the shape, or even when it was made.

Nasa lost communication with the Spirit rover in 2009 after it became stuck in some sand. Meanwhile the Opportunity is still traversing the surface on its way to the Endeavour crater.

Phase one contract for Cali's multibillion dollar high speed rail system awarded to... wait for it... Senator Feinstein's husband. The winning bid will cost the state a microscopic $35,000,000 per mile* to connect Madera and Fresno (not including land acquisition, utilities, and the trains themselves).

They don't even make an attempt to hide this stuff anymore.
