I'm not saying you shouldn't rock an Attack on Titan mobile phone case in the shape of the 3D Manoeuvring Device's controller from the show. By all means, let your otaku flag fly. All I'm saying is don't pull this thing out on the train if you don't want get arrested and/or shot. Because it looks exactly like an IED detonator.

It's estimated that one in eight people worldwide live in so-called slums, which, in some cities, makes visiting these informally maintained neighbourhoods unavoidable. Although controversial, the practice of "slum tourism" has become a popular way for tourists to engage with poverty on a personal level. But why go visit an actual slum when you can simply stay at a luxury resort that looks like a slum?

Hannah Sabata, a girl who's only 19 years old, did something a lot of teenage girls do: post a video to YouTube in which they talk to the camera. But unlike most 19-year-olds, Sabata bragged about stealing a car and robbing a bank, even flashing the cash to prove it. She, um, got arrested because of that video.

Here's a friendly reminder for everyone who wants to leave work early: don't ever set fire to your workplace. Especially if you work on a million nuclear submarine. Especially if you'll cause $US400 million in damage. And especially if you just want to leave early because of a silly text message argument with your ex-girlfriend. It's completely dumb and you could possibly end up in jail for life like the idiot guy who did just that might.

Sometimes it's hard to tell if the site you're on is legit. But if you stumbled on HitManForHire.net, what would you think? A joke, right? Turns out its owner was dead serious. I can't believe I have to explain this, but: If you plan to commit crime, don't announce it online. OK?

Bungee jumping is already the scariest thing in the world, so how does one make it EVEN SCARIER? By going the homemade, DIY route. These guys just tied a few knots, used a few carabiners and then just jumped off a freaking bridge. That's it. Watch it, you'll be stunned at how flimsy the entire set up looks.

I've long been over the ridiculously overpriced-ness of idiotic Vertu phones. 300 grand for a dumbphone? Whatever, the stupid rich who spend that stupidly are beyond saving anyway. But Vertu has hit a new low (or high?) with this one: a $US190 Vertu USB cable.

Two wrongs don't make a right. I think I learned that as a four-year-old. Apparently, HP and Condé Nast skipped out on that life lesson because they're combining two dying things — print media and printers — to create the unholiest of unions: your HP printer at home will print out Condé Nast magazines for you to read.
