if you pay for an AirBnB with Bitcoins you will probably die.
And rightly so. Having a beard and checked shirt will merely hasten the death by hipsterism in additional to the risk of a crazed AirBnB host.
I don't know about anybody else, but I'd really like to hear a story that came with that set-up,
Parked in a McDonalds car park. Young couple in a car next to us wound down the window and lobbed out a load of leftovers, boxes, chips etc. Right next to a bin. Wife went over and threw it back in the window. Boyfriend gets out, yelling abuse and threatening. Wife refuses to back down. Guy returns to car, comes back with an axe. Wife refuses to back down (she's like that...). Guy then decides I'm a better target and starts on me. Wife shouts to me to go into shop and take our young son with me, which I do (unlike her, I don't have a death wish). Nutter stays outside, swears a bit more, then returns to car and drives off. As an aside, I know more men who get beaten up/attacked on behalf of their wives who seem to enjoy kicking off, than I care to think about.
any serious journalist publishes this sort of thing elsewhere like The Guardian
You do realise that by and large the Guardian is seen as a joke these days and is turning into a Buzzfeed clone? Apart from anything else, Duncan Campbell has a long and very respectable reputation for digging where few dare to go and has uncovered a hell of a lot of otherwise secret goings on over many decades.
