Hong Kong’s protesters are using the same “hands up, don’t shoot” gesture used in Ferguson

This is a nice sentiment, but even in the article itself it torpedoes this idea, its just click bait.

“One 22-year-old protester told Quartz’s Lily Kuo that she had never heard of the events in Ferguson. Another said that the similarity was coincidental, a result of protest leaders telling people to raise their hands to police to signal peacefulness. Still, Hong Kongers pride themselves on being plugged in to the world, so it is within the realm of possibility that some of them followed the events in Ferguson and are now appropriating the gesture for their own use, even if only subconsciously”
So basically, the author admits there is no basis to this but its a nice story so they run with it.

Evening Post: August 12, 1899.
"She immediately alighted, caught hold of the astonished youth, and gave him a sound thrashing, using her fists in a scientific fashion…”

I’m not sure how true it is, but I’ve seen this post before with the suggestion that that is a euphemism for “she punched him in the dick”
