Fancy cakemaker shows what is inside his cakes:

I had read somewhere that the heart is animated with a simulated beat. Otherwise it is all edible.

Goth wedding cake?

In all seriousness, that is both disturbing and awesome at the same time.

Actually it appears he just made as a lark to answer the questions he got asking "What is in your cakes?"

Hindu surgeon's wedding cake?

both disturbing and awesome at the same time.

That's beautiful, however they punched the colors up so much its too obvious, which detracts a bit.

argh, yeah, wasn't a bad tattoo otherwise.
Still, that might be fixable.
Not that I'd ever get a tattoo. However I think I'd have just skipped the text and explained it to anybody that asked.

Yeah, it would suck to get sued, have to strip down for the court, and then get hit for $150k for willful infringement when it was all over with.

While I wouldn't put it above some copyright lawyers try this, doesn't there have to be some amount of financial gain to make such a lawsuit worthwhile? And while the pictured woman might have to display her tattoo if such a lawsuit got to the courts, the person being sued wouldn't be that woman but the tattoo artist.

Jammie Thomas (who admittedly is a dumbass) was briefly on the hook for $1.9M for non-commercial infringement while file sharing. It has since been reduced to a mere $222K. So no, apparently there doesn't have to be any financial gain to get nailed in the ass by a copyright holder.

Of course, the copyright holder has to expect to get something out of it, which in the case of Thomas, was a favorable court ruling with which to use in their other extortion attempts, er, lawsuits. (they haven't gotten a penny out of Thomas, despite spending more than $1M, so it had to have been the precedent) So, if this woman isn't worth all that much financially, she probably could have gotten away with it.

The difference in Thomas' case was that she was being fined statutory damages for violation of the RIAA-designed laws covering music copyright. Even with the various reductions those fines were designed to be monetary punishment as opposed to being appropriate compensation. Her case was supposed to be a lesson to us all not to violate music copyright (rather than the lesson that laws shouldn't be written by the people who stand to benefit directly from them).

If the award had been something that didn't instantly bankrupt a person, I could see it as a penalty. As it stands, I see it more as a "We didn't pay all that money for favorable legislation to have you peasants to ignore our extortion letters." thing instead.

Fortunately, the recording industry still needs people to like them enough that they knocked it off after that. Unfortunately, it encouraged the trolls to come out from under their bridges.

Well, I'm glad that someone here at Macstack considers $222K not enough to "instantly bankrupt a person.'

No idea. There was no explanation at the source. Maybe if someone can identify some of the mission patches on the right.

Yeah, but didn't they test it here where there's more gravity? Shouldn't they have known better?

And it weighs a ton (not "a lot", an actual ton, like around 1000 Kg), that thing is bigger and heavier than a Smart Car.

Anyway, here's a link about the damage:

Basically, it can still reach the intended destination, but they'll have to take a longer route with softer sandy terrain. They also say going backwards can help.
