  1. I’m confused. The source article says “the man’s name is expected to be released in the next few days”, but then it has a picture of who’s presumably the victim, naming him. Does not add up.

    What a weird story.

    A link on the page goes to another story titled “Man who died a victim ‘by no means’”. Seems as though New Zealanders like to keep stories interesting by omission.

    Rule #34 (Charles Stross). Isn’t it obvious that ATHENA nullified him in order to remove a key node in one of the global spam botnets. Surprised the news report didn’t mention the Viagra-Statin-Grapefruit juice enema that went with the elaborate gag system.

    They should have shown a picture of the helmet. You know, so we do not make one like it …
