Well, strictly speaking (since I want you to keep checking in on me) if you only read two blogs, then the other one should be Plumpergeddon.
I don’t normally promote other people’s blog on here – other than a helpful list of blogs that don’t suck on the right – but I cannot help myself but point you in the direction of this, the most intriguing blog I’ve clapped eyes on for a while. If this doesn’t get made into a movie, I might campaign for it.
Here’s the crib notes:
A guy was spiked and robbed in London, woke up 6 hours later in the street. His MacBook was stolen from his backpack and his credit card was touring the west end shops loading up on high end purchases to the tune of seven thousand pounds – as well as an online subscription to a fat-fetish porn site called Plumperpass (hence the Plumpergeddon title.)
What the robber didn’t realise was that the victim (a programmer who relied on his laptop for work) had installed a piece of tracking software on his beloved MacBook that sent him back screen grabs as well as pictures from the inbuilt camera. Thousands of them.
The blogger phoned the Met Police, logged the crime and loaded them with every detail you’d need to solve it. Given he (or she, we don’t know the victim’s identity) had provided everything from a list of items purchased on the debit card corresponding to screen grabs of the robber selling them on eBay, thousands of mug shots as well as an address to where the guy lived, you’d think this case would have been open and shut faster than a new business in a recession. Not so. The police basically did fuck all about it.
And so, with nothing to lose and armed with thousands of pictures of his attacker mastubating to fat lasses, he did the very next best thing to getting the laptop back. He put it on the internet. (After all, who wants a jizz-stained keyboard now anyway, right?)
So – go take a read, and enjoy the truest real-time crime story you will ever read.
