This gentleman is Jeffrey Wade Chapman who will soon go to trial in Barton County, Kansas for first degree murder. Chapman’s attorney has filed a motion requesting that before the trial Chapman be permitted to have a tattoo artist cover up his client’s tattoo — the word “MURDER” in mirror image — because it “is irrelevant to the State’s case and would be extremely prejudicial to Mr. Chapman if introduced at trial or observed by the jury.” The State doesn’t oppose Chapman’s covering the tattoo but will not transport him to a licensed tattoo shop, and it’s illegal for a tattoo artist to practice anywhere else.

Use a Raspberry Pi as a Tor/VPN Router for Anonymous Browsing

We’ve shown you how to use a Raspberry Pi as both a Tor proxy and a personal VPN, but Make shows off how to do both in one unit for truly anonymous browsing everywhere.

The build here uses two Wi-Fi adapters to get the job done. Once it’s complete, you’ll have a passive VPN connection that you’ll hardly even notice is there. You’ll also have Tor installed, so you can flip over to that connection with just a couple of clicks. It’s a pretty simple setup all things considered, and it’ll act as a nice bridge between your standard router for those times when you want to browse anonymously or get around any location-specific blocks.

Kobayakawa is a minimalist betting tactical game. The Pico of Poker (as it was described to me). The game antes one coin, and then deals each player a card, plus flips a card face up.

Going (once) around the table you can either:

  • Draw a card, then keep one card (hidden) and reveal the other (discarding it).
  • Replace the face up card in the center (you flip up the top one and replace, no choice).

After this, there’s one round of betting. You can bet or fold. After everyone bets, you reveal. The lowest revealed card gets to add the center card to theirs. Highest value wins. (Under the gun winning ties). That’s it.

I can see myself mocking up a copy of this soon to give it a try.  I like games with a level of bluff and combining that with simple rules and a bit of press-your-luck, this seems like a winner.
