Give Your GPS Sci-Fi Flair With A Wide Variety Of Iconic Vehicles

serenity2Before I even get into any kind of an introductory paragraph here, let’s get it out in the open that if you don’t own a Garmin GPS device, this story might not be beneficial to you. Unless you know how to get these on other devices. It might be easy as shit. I have no idea. I use a map and smartphone in collaboration.

So, just yesterday we told you about how to convert your cash when you’re traveling to other sci-fi locations. But we didn’t tell you a good way to get to those locations. We’re such jerks that way. Just head on over to GarminHeaven to find a slew of GIFs that you can upload to your Garmin systems to instantly be traveling in style.

[Warning: Giant Freakin’ Robot is not responsible if you turn into a total assface and decide that using a DeLorean icon gives you the right to actually travel 88 mph down any American road, no matter how bad you want to shred on “Johnny Be Goode.”]

NYPD Aims To Foil Pharmacy Robberies With GPS-Tracking Pill Bottles

Pills pouring from a medication bottle

I’m not going to sit here and lie to you, readers, even though I’m completely unprovoked and no one really asked. I’ve taken my share of prescription medications, and with only a few trips to the dentist and doctor under my belt, the means in which I’d acquired them was rarely legitimate. But I never stole any. Except for the ones I skimmed off my dad, rest his soul. And I’d have to assume at least one of the people I bought them from had stolen them in the first place. So maybe it could be considered theft. But I never got caught red-handed! Except for when one of the side effects made my hands turn red.

The New York Police Department, as a way of combating a rash of violent pharmacy robberies in the last year, has implemented the use of decoy pill bottles embedded with GPS tracking chips. The bottles, which are weighted and designed to rattle when shaken, immediately emit their tracking signal once they’re removed from a special base. It’s hoped the thieves will not inventory their stash immediately, which would allow police officers the time to pinpoint a location and plan their approach. The default plan is probably just to point a gun at the person and yell, “Give me back those fucking pills!”
