The hacker group who broke into the computer network of Sony Pictures and managed to halt the release of ‘The Interview’ have issued a new message, this time mocking the FBI.
The Daily Beast reports that Guardians of Peace published a new message on Pastebin on Saturday. Here’s that message in its entirety:
The result of investigation by FBI is so excellent that you might have seen what we were doing with your own eyes.
We congratulate you success.
FBI is the BEST in the world.
You will find the gift for FBI at the following address.
The link in the message leads to a Japanese prank video which repeats the phrase “You are an idiot” to the tune of throbbing house music. It seems that Guardians of Peace are mocking the FBI’s “excellent” investigation, which led to the US government declaring on Friday that North Korea was behind the cyber-attack.
The “You are an idiot” video could be an attempt to criticize the FBI for blaming the Sony hack on North Korea. Some are still unconvinced by the US government’s claim that the software used in the Sony hack was similar to programs used in the past by attacks linked to North Korea.
Monday through Thursday at the Monarch Room in New York City, executive chef Michael Citarella prepares his off-the-menu burger, the Monarch Burger. It’s 8 ounces of all-natural, ultra-premium beef ground from a single steer with a 20% fat ratio. It’s served on a toasted caraway-seeded bun with aged cheddar, bibb lettuce, beefsteak tomatoes, and Monarch’s special sauce.
We visited Michael’s kitchen, where he showed us how to make the juiciest burger right in your own home.

Two police officers were shot “execution-style” in their car in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood at around 3 p.m. today. The New York Post reports that both officers have died, as has the shooter. The officers’ names have not yet been released.
Two New York police officers died after a solo-shooter ambushed their patrol car earlier today.
The officers were near Myrtle Avenue and Tompkins Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant when the 28-year-old gunman approached their car.
At least one of the officers was shot in the head, police said.
After firing on the officers, the man ran into a nearby subway station before shooting himself, an NYPD official said.
The gunman posted an angry, threatening message about the police on his social media account before ambushing the police officers.
The last NYPD officer killed by gunfire in the line of duty was Peter Figoski in 2011.

New York (AFP) – Two New York police officers were shot dead in Brooklyn on Saturday, officials said, in what local media called an apparent ambush.
The shootings come amid anger over the chokehold death of an unarmed black father-of-six by a white police officer, and a grand jury’s decision not to press charges against him. Local media said the assailant was also dead.
The New York Times‘ readers have some opinions about the paper of record’s piece on the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s new campaign against men who take up too much room on the subway, a practice which has been dubbed “manspreading.”
It was only a matter of time: New York Post now has its very own Pascalizer, that is, an Amy Pascal voice generator. Just enter any text, click “NOW CLICK HERE TO PASCALIZE IT!” and voilà. Suddenly you have a doggedly up-front and douchey email in all-caps, with notes of tired racism. Now you too can sound like a big time Hollywood executive! Sigh, our culture is so ridiculous.
This is much, much better than the original. Read more… →
