Occupy News Bins: miniature Lego OWS, complete with pepper-spraying cop

"No property was harmed during this installation," DocPop tells us about this hilarious teeny-tiny Lego Occupy. "From what I understand the piece has already been removed though I don't know by whom."

    1. Boing Boing reliably locks up and crashes Chrome.

      It invariably used to crash the individual tabs when I had a bunch of BB tabs open, in Chromium under various breeds of Linux on three machines; working down the RSS feed would effectively max out the CPU and RAM.

      I suspect… [looks round,  whispers behind hand…] Disqus…

      1. While I complain about Disqus periodically, it is in reference to other bugs; I visit many, many sites that use Disqus where this never happens.

          True for me as well, although the experiment of opening the same number of tabs from other Disqus sites causes similar, though less extreme, patterns of processor and memory usage in Chromium.  I don’t open tabs in these sites in anywhere near the quantity I open tabs from BB; and in my experience, the other sites using Disqus don’t have anywhere near the number of comments.  YMMV, of course.

          And, of course, the utterly unanswerable argument of the end user: it only happened after the… upgrade…

  1. I’ve noted the Frank Chu reference in the background. San Francisco locals should catch that reference.

    1. I hurried down to comments to make that very point.  Has Frank been at OWS SF that much?  I no longer work in the City and I just don’t see him as front and center on the local news as he has been in the past.

      1. I wish I could tell you Bevatron..I’m an indentured servant so I have not been to many protests, much less been on a date.

  2. I love it.  OWS has a serious purpose but has levity, too.  An honest spectrum of expression, but it’s all the truth.  http://OccupyGovernment.org has got the online activism bit down, gathering non-corporate candidates & supporters for the 2012 elections.  Join up!
