That guy is having a time. According to E Online, "Emmy-winning actor Rip Torn was arrested Saturday for allegedly breaking into a bank in Salisbury, Conn., where he's a resident. Police described the incident as a booze-inspired bank job. In a statement, cops say they responded to an alarm at 9:40 p.m. Friday and found Torn "with a loaded revolver, and was highly intoxicated." The many charges against the 78-year-old Men in Black star include carrying a firearm while intoxicated, carrying a pistol without a permit, first-degree criminal trespass, first-degree burglary, and third-degree criminal mischief." Yes, Alex is right: he's just a drinkie.
Want to try K-Cup style coffee making without buying an entire machine? Those machines can be expensive, and you might have a need for the higher capacity of a regular drip coffeemaker on occasion. That's the thinking behind the K-pod, a project on Kickstarter that proposes an insert for a regular coffee maker that uses K-Cups to make your coffee or tea one cup at a time. It even has a dial that allows you to choose how strong you want your brew! http://kck.st/Nszdur
Ever wish for a tablet stand that's easy to carry with you and can even slip into your pocket? We got our hands on a 3D-printed prototype of the Plinth, now on Kickstarter, and it looks like it might just be the solution to that particular problem. It folds down flat and at the touch of a button (one-handed operation!) it can go to one of three different viewing angles. The backing level on Kickstarter that will put one of these in your hands is £18 (about $30 USD). http://kck.st/1coiW57
