These are "leaked" images, and they all look like bad photoshops. Ugliest goggles I've ever seen.

If you go to the tweet embedded in the article you'll find more images.

Uki, you are the only poster here who's linked images never, ever display in a browser without right clicking "open in new tab".

Not even duct tape will fix stupid, but it can muffle the sound.

They do. This has been an issue with your posts for years.

I have the same problem. Any posts from Facebook or Twitter fail. Not sure why, but I usually quote the post, then copy/paste the address in a new tab.

That could be it. I trust Twitter about as much as I would trust a sandwich dropped in a septic tank.

I don’t have a Twitter account but I do go there sometimes, but I do avoid Facebook as much as I can

That’s one hot linked from Gizmodo, and the other one is on Imgur.
