Since so much of the internet is based around writing headlines to grab your attention, I thought I'd start a thread for posting some that stand out. Of course, a thread like this could get out of hand (or find no interest whatsoever, I suppose) so try to remember that there are a lot of pretty good attention grabbing headlines but the aim is to stick to the most ridiculous. It could morph over time but my intention would be to have it be from at least a fairly reputable source. No websites like Outbrain devoted to just clickbait. I'm up in the air on whether to use aggregator sites, though places like Drudge rewrite some hilarious headlines.

 

Post the headline and then the link to the story. 

 

Maybe it won't go anywhere but I'll start it. i kind of hate to hesitate to use this story because these fucking cops were too useless to wound this guy brandishing his four inch knife - of course, they had to kill him. Please, don't fucking call the police if a situation needs deescalation. They're not trained to do anything but ramp violence up. At any rate, here's the first one:

ITS TOO EASY TO TRICK YOUR AMAZON ECHO TO SPY ON YOU.

 

My reaction to the title was "No shit?", a true "Duh" moment.

I saw that headline ^^^ yesterday and thought the same thing. 

Go figure - a surveillance device which listens to your conversations

The other thing which really, really creeps me out is the number of family and friends who willingly brought one of these things into their home with no thought for how they would work. Luckily, I've been in with this crowd of "conspiracy theorists" and already have my earth-bonded, tin-foil hat for protection.

So let me know how it turned out.  Can it be unbroken?

I think the company logo itself answers your question.

It is this headline that made my watching of the movie, The Circle, so timely.   It's what the book and movie are about.   It is everyone being seen by everyone (on the iTech companies' proprietary technology platforms, of course), everyone except the companies' top brass, of course.

Using the Sun is kinda cheating. Provocative headlines are pretty much their business model...
