Sobbing Frenchman recounts Renault Laguna terror ordeal

Automobile satanique


We really do wish the French would pay rather more attention to the mounting evidence that their entire car industry - notably Citroen and Renault - is now nothing more than a supplier of quality satanic automobiles to the Lizard Alliance.

In July last year we reported that a mephistopholean Renault Vel Satis attempted to do away with its terrified owner when it took him on an hour-long, 125mph kamikaze Cannonball Run. Renault at the time doubted very much the driver's version of events - that the car had refused to respond to appeals to slow down a bit - and we accordingly concluded that company CEO Louis Schweitzer was remotely controlled from the lizard mothership via explosive cranial implant.

Naturally, less well-informed readers derided our suggestion that the French are manipulated by extraterrestrial forces bent on the subjugation of humanity via technology. Further proof is clearly required. Read on:

On Wednesday, an innocent jaunt near Rouen became another page in the chronicle of the Rise of the Machines™ after a Renault Laguna spontaneously decided to subject its master - accompanied by his five-year-old son - to a forty-kilometre white-knuckle rollercoaster terror ordeal during which the panic-sticken Frenchman could neither brake, decelerate nor use the clutch.

Mr Gamada later recounted to French daily Paris-Normandie: "I always take the same route. I'd entered 87kmph on the speed regulator because there's a 90kmph limit on the road. But suddenly the car locked up. I couldn't do anything... except turn the wheel."

A shaken Gamada continued: "I was asked to do one of three things: disengage the clutch, which didn't work; press the start button five times - again, nothing; override the speed control box - still nothing."

Gamada at this point contacted his wife via mobile phone, who in turn alerted the authorities. The police put Gamada in touch with Renault assistance and - after 40 kilometres - a combination of clutch, start button and speed regulator manipulation brought the murderous Laguna to a halt.

The local press report notes that "the offending car is fitted with a mechanical speed regulator - without electronic control". It rather superbly adds: "It seems probable that the driver was not able to disengage the lever."

We await with delicious, albeit fearful, anticipation the explanation of Louis Schweitzer for this latest outrage. Of course, the report will finger Gamada as the culprit after which the sobbing victim will be paid off with a family trip to Disneyland Paris during which he and his son will - as the only eyewitnesses to the events - be terminated by a French-built cyberloo. ®

Thanks very much to French neoLuddite Resistance Army member Stéphane for alerting us to the Laguna's malevolent intent. Consider yourselves forewarned and forearmed.

  • Stolen university credentials up for sale by Russian crooks, FBI warns
    Forget dark-web souks, thousands of these are already being traded on public bazaars

    Russian crooks are selling network credentials and virtual private network access for a "multitude" of US universities and colleges on criminal marketplaces, according to the FBI.

    According to a warning issued on Thursday, these stolen credentials sell for thousands of dollars on both dark web and public internet forums, and could lead to subsequent cyberattacks against individual employees or the schools themselves.

    "The exposure of usernames and passwords can lead to brute force credential stuffing computer network attacks, whereby attackers attempt logins across various internet sites or exploit them for subsequent cyber attacks as criminal actors take advantage of users recycling the same credentials across multiple accounts, internet sites, and services," the Feds' alert [PDF] said.

  • Big Tech loves talking up privacy – while trying to kill privacy legislation
    Study claims Amazon, Apple, Google, Meta, Microsoft work to derail data rules

    Amazon, Apple, Google, Meta, and Microsoft often support privacy in public statements, but behind the scenes they've been working through some common organizations to weaken or kill privacy legislation in US states.

    That's according to a report this week from news non-profit The Markup, which said the corporations hire lobbyists from the same few groups and law firms to defang or drown state privacy bills.

    The report examined 31 states when state legislatures were considering privacy legislation and identified 445 lobbyists and lobbying firms working on behalf of Amazon, Apple, Google, Meta, and Microsoft, along with industry groups like TechNet and the State Privacy and Security Coalition.

  • SEC probes Musk for not properly disclosing Twitter stake
    Meanwhile, social network's board rejects resignation of one its directors

    America's financial watchdog is investigating whether Elon Musk adequately disclosed his purchase of Twitter shares last month, just as his bid to take over the social media company hangs in the balance. 

    A letter [PDF] from the SEC addressed to the tech billionaire said he "[did] not appear" to have filed the proper form detailing his 9.2 percent stake in Twitter "required 10 days from the date of acquisition," and asked him to provide more information. Musk's shares made him one of Twitter's largest shareholders. The letter is dated April 4, and was shared this week by the regulator.

    Musk quickly moved to try and buy the whole company outright in a deal initially worth over $44 billion. Musk sold a chunk of his shares in Tesla worth $8.4 billion and bagged another $7.14 billion from investors to help finance the $21 billion he promised to put forward for the deal. The remaining $25.5 billion bill was secured via debt financing by Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, Barclays, and others. But the takeover is not going smoothly.
