Show Notes

    • We may have been drinking too many Mad Jack Sucker Punches.
    • WARNING: this show is a Nova Scotia Kitchen Party
  • burning wickerKelly may be leaving Jon for her new chair.
    • Jon hates wicker. Wicker is ass.

    • Kelly may think that Biohacking groups fall under the Girl Guides of Canada.
    • PBS biohacking...wha?
    • Russian biohacker is a human compass. Not because he has any interest in magnets. Or north. Or navigation. Or compasses. It’s just cool, man.
      • But it’s only cool for a day or so. Depending on how often he turns north.
  • 23:00 – Jon walks us through the Wanna Cry ransomware attack

    • Newfie weapons contain an arse, and all. (get it? arsenal?)

    • Jon forgot to read a paragraph of the The Shadow Broker’s recent release. But, you should…their writing is so..odd
    • Spoiler: Someone (cough NSA cough) told Microsoft this really bad exploit had been stolen.
