  The Pirate Bay is testing pirate streaming again If you want to stream The Mandalorian but don't have a Disney+ subscription, there's a new, albeit illegal option: The Pirate Bay. A new green "play" button, or in some cases a "B" button, allows you to stream popular pirated streams on a new site called "BayStream," as spotted by TorrentFreak. It works with most film or TV show via a very simple YouTube-style interface that lets you play or skip to any part of the show, according to some quick testing.With a solid connection, it appears to work well and delivers the same quality as the torrent you selected. According to the site, the maximum possible download size is limited to 20GB.

A real-life Grinch took nastiness to a new level after snatching a gift from a doorstep and leaving a sarcastic thank-you note for the victim.

Hilary Smith ordered a Christmas gift for her boss and had it delivered to her snowy home in St. Paul, Minnesota. But she never saw the package.

"I looked down, and there was a piece of notebook paper folded neatly on the top step, where the package probably should have been," Smith told CNN affiliate WCCO Friday.

The handwritten message was colder than a frigid Minnesota morning:

"So just a quick little thank you for leaving me the (opportunity) of stealing your package," the thief wrote. "Very nice of you. Thank you."

Package thief taunts St. Paul victim with thank you note

  Package thief taunts St. Paul victim with thank you note A package thief who made off with a woman's delivery in St. Paul this week decided to leave something behind for the victim — a handwritten thank you note taunting her for the package. © Saint Paul Police Department via Twitter (@sppdmn)Homeowner Hilary Smith said she found the note on her porch after she got home from work, hours after she received a text saying that her package had been delivered. The note said: “So just a quick little thank you for leaving me the opportunity of stealing your package. Very nice of you. Thank You." It was signed: “The new owner of your package."St.

“I do appreciate a nicely-crafted ‘ thank you ’ note , but this is ridiculous. I was angry and confused and quite flabbergasted someone would actually leave a ‘ thank you ’ note when they steal a package ,” Smith said. She immediately posted on social media, where the note gained steam.

As if stealing a package from someone's front steps isn't cruel enough, a porch pirate in St. Paul added an insulting " thank you " note for the package 's rightful owner. "Two days ago Hilary was notified that a package was delivered to her home on the 800 block of Watson Avenue.

The porch pirate signed the note, "The new owner of your package."

Smith said she's bewildered by the bandit's audacity.

"I do appreciate a nicely crafted thank-you note, but this is ridiculous," she said.

St. Paul police Sgt. Mike Ernster told WCCO he's never heard of post-theft thank-you notes before. But he said any other victims should call police.

"We want people to report crimes as they occur so we can keep track of them and hopefully solve them," Ernster said.

The contents are extremely stinky. Experts say there are several ways you can reduce your risk of getting looted by a porch pirate, such as:

-- Shipping packages to your work address or to a trusted neighbor who will be home

-- Using an Amazon Hub Locker for Amazon packages

-- Asking FedEx or UPS to hold a package at one of their facilities until you can pick it up

Meanwhile, Smith is conducting her own sting operation in case the bandit comes back to her home. She's leaving a decoy package on her doorstep as bait.

If a thief snatches it, he or she will discover the package is actually stuffed with "a little gift from my dog."
