Facial Sculptures Made from Random DNA Samples

DNA is essential to carbon-based life as we know it, but this is one of the few times that I’ve seen it used to create art. An artist created portrait sculptures from the analyses of genetic material that was collected in public places.

Owl 360 Rear View Bike Camera: Safety Improvement, or an Accident Waiting to Happen?

If you bike a lot, you know that anything that distracts you from the road ahead will potentially cause an accident. I’ve had a few, and one of them actually just involved playing with my cycling computer. I ended up in the hospital. I’m concerned that the Owl 360 camera, which promises to let you check up what’s behind you on your bike, will end up causing more accidents that it saves. Then again, it’s cool to have the option of having eyes in the back of your head.

When Shooting A Man In the Head Isn’t Murder

A grand jury has rejected the accusation of attempted murder against a firefighter who shot a man in the head while he was bicycling with his daughter. The man survived since his helmet blocked the shot from killing him. How is this not attempted murder? Favoritism, because he is a firefighter? The grand jury let the charge drop to assault with a deadly weapon.

The accused said that he was worried for the girl’s safety because she was bicycling with her father so he attempted to shoot and kill him with a bullet to the head.

Diez, 42, apparently fired at the Asheville man after arguing with him about riding his bike on the busy road with his 3-year-old child in a bike seat behind him, Asheville Police Capt. Tim Splain said.

Diez was driving his car off Interstate 40 at Exit 55 at about 11:24 a.m. when he saw Alan Ray Simons and his wife riding bikes up the road and decided to tell Simons the situation was unsafe for the child because of heavy traffic, Splain said.
