How to stop a Tesla with a box of chalk.
By Daveslist • Issue #38
Happy Saturday, y'all! Ever wonder what happens when a massive landslide hits an Alaskan fjord? Or how you build a simple trap from which a self driving car cannot escape? Or why craft brew gets you hammered so much faster than production swill? All will be answered this week.
Let’s get it on…

Always worked for me.
This is the must read of the week, if for no other reason than to give you a visualization of what happens when a glacier calves or when a landslide hits the water from thousands of feet. Hint: it’s monstrous.
This is heartbreaking. Over the past few years I’ve heard the South described as “America’s Mexico” more and more often. What is most often meant by that jab is that the South has managed to wrest the high paying union jobs away from Northern manufacturers by offering non-union labor at cut rates and little protections for the workers. The results of this strategy are often tragic, as this piece outlines. 
The sea change in the world economy over the past decade has created a new normal whereby employers seek to hire as few employees as humanly possible, and outsource the overflow to gigsters - the freelancers who make up the new gig economy. Unfortunately for many of those gigsters, the pay is crap and there’s no benefits, so more and more we’re encountering people literally working themselves to death. And the big companies in that space seem to view that as a badge of honor.
Owning Dominos stock lately (full disclosure: I do not own Dominos stock) has been a big money maker. The company has literally fueled the tech revolution (check the dumpsters of every tech company you can think of and you’ll find a tower of empty Dominos boxes), so it makes sense that the stock outperforms the tech giants. They’ve  grown into a $9 billion juggernaut with some of the best delivery tech on the street.
I have to admit that I cracked up the first time I saw this. There’s nothing magic about it, it’s just pure evil genius. And once self driving cars hit the streets, angsty teenagers will be spray painting these everywhere.
This seems like the most natural evolution in the world. A recent Kickstarter sorta pioneered this concept, but this iteration is much better. As smartphones get ever more powerful, there’s no longer any reason to have a separate computing device.
iPhones are attractive to hackers because they’re a closed system and they’re all alike, so you get a ton of bang for your hacking buck (as opposed to Android, which has many versions and literally hundreds of different handset models). 
If these guys are for real, they’ve given Apple until April 7 to cough up a $75,000 Bitcoin ransom (or $100,000 in iTunes gift cards, lol) or they’re going to remote wipe 300 million iCloud accounts. 
Where my nerds at? 
I was super skeptical of Scarlett Johansson in the role of Major (not that she isn’t a great actress, she is, she just wasn’t an obvious choice for this role), but after watching the first five minutes I’m definitely seeing this movie. I don’t expect it to be particularly faithful to the source material, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be a great flick.
That’s it for this week, y'all. Hit REPLY and let me know what you thought about this week’s links. Hit FORWARD and send this along to all your friends. But most all…
Stay safe, have a fantastic weekend, and I’ll see you next Saturday!
