someone managed to make 30% of the population believe


This is what is bothering me.
"We must adjust to changing times and still hold to unchanging principles." – The bold and brilliant dream which excited the founders of this Nation still awaits its consummation. Ours was the first society openly to define itself in terms of both spirituality and of human liberty. It is that unique self–definition which has given us an exceptional appeal, but it also imposes on us a special obligation: to take on those moral duties which, when assumed, seem invariably to be in our own best interests.
The American dream endures. We must once again have full faith in our country – and in one another. I believe America can be better. We can be even stronger than before. Let our recent mistakes bring a resurgent commitment to the basic principles of our Nation, for we know that if we despise our own government we have no future. We recall in special times when we have stood briefly, but magnificently, united. In those times no prize was beyond our grasp.
But we cannot dwell upon remembered glory. We cannot afford to drift. Our Government must at the same time be both competent and compassionate. Our Nation can be strong abroad only if it is strong at home. And we know that the best way to enhance freedom in other lands is to demonstrate here that our democratic system is worthy of emulation. To be true to ourselves, we must be true to others. We must not behave in foreign places so as to violate our rules and standards here at home, for we know that the trust which our Nation earns is essential to our strength.

When governors on tv suck up to the president,  it's soooo cringe..

I worked for FEMA for a while. A governor can declare disasters (by county) in his state, at the state's expense, and it is the President's prerogative as to whether it rises to the level of a Federal disaster (also by county). If a governor can convince the President to step in, it can be worth a lot of money to the state, at the Federal government's expense.

I don't doubt the motivation, but the wording they chose, and on tv no less... maximum Cringe.

My neighbors stupid ****ing barking little piece of **** dog that has been yapping for 7.5hrs straight on my day off. I want to crush it's little skull then grind it's body into the concrete until it is just a smear of brownish red in the sidewalk. I hate that dog so much. Why won't it shut the **** up?!?!

It's always the little ones that are the most annoying, like they have something to prove.

Can relate. I have a neighbor with a cat that will often get into my room from the window and take a piss/poo in my living room. Last week I told the owner that if she doesn't take care of the cat I'll call some authorities.

The cat is terrific, he's very docile and playful but I'm really not happy with waking up and stepping on poop specially from a cat that wanders around a lot and might be sick

The time it takes for a simple WTB / WTS thread to get approved on the Classifieds bothers me a little bit.

In every other forum or place I know you get your thread up and running instantly but GeekHack is different, because reasons I suppose.

because mods are voluntary so they have a main job and have a ton of work other than approving tens of classified threads, they do their best but there is a bit of a bot and advert problem that takes a lot of their time.

My neighbors stupid ****ing barking little piece of **** dog that has been yapping


poisoning


All of my adjoining neighbors have dogs but the horrible one is fenced in a small area of the yard where the houses are closest together and immediately outside my bedroom window. At that spot, my side yard is only 8 feet wide! They put it out (presumably for bathroom purposes) at all hours of day and night (sometimes at 3:00 or 4:00 in the morning) and keep it locked out for half an hour - which is 1 minute of voiding and 29 minutes of barking.

Whichever dogs are outside at the time of barking will all chime in and encourage each other.

I have considered the poison route many times, but an arrow would be far more satisfying.

What about buying a bigger dog yourself.  have read that it can quiet the smaller dogs.

kinda feel like the problem is the human and not the dog, locking their dog out like that seems rather inhumane, dunno, i feel like the dog is barking to get back in.

Of course it is.  But who wants a **** dog inside of their house?  Not me!

well yeah, for sure, but then you maybe should not own a dog then, that is my opinion though.

Two years ago I came home tired and medically stupid with a huge bag full of camping stuff.  The dirty clothes got washed and the sleeping bag, blow up mattress, pillow and travel towel were all put back in the drawer under my bed where they came from.  I remember none of this except that I bough some t-shirts that I have worn since and the stuff was in the drawer when I looked today.

The question is what happened to my tent, extra groundsheet, fold up chair and the huge bag all said stuff was last seen in?  I don't even know what colour the huge bag, chair or tent bag are (all were bought for the trip) and I'm assuming I'm looking for a big bag with everything in, though I was expecting all the stuff that was in the drawer to be in it too and it clearly isn't.

How can you find something when you have no idea what it looks like?  I need it in just over a week!

As the UK adult population should be 90% half vaccinated and 75% fully I'm going to a music festival, so like camping except instead of hunting you can get veggie food from a choice of vendors   Entry also requires a negative Lateral Flow Test so while it's not safe it's about as close as you can get and if it's as windy as 2019 (when they closed the main stage because of the wind) the virus wont be hanging in the air long anyway.

Take care. Even in countries with high percentage of vaccinated adults, there seems to be an ongoing surge in Delta-variant cases; the UK being one of them. Use masks and keep your distance. Don't kiss any strangers in the mouth, specially if under LSD.

And Epsilon next month... I'm not in denial but I could have been hit off my bike twice in a week not long ago which could have killed me and I've had to risk catching covid going to work since day one so why not risk it again for pleasure now some of the scientific guessers say it's OK.

Kissing?  LSD??  That sounds like a rave (dance music *shudder*) not a festival where actual bands play.  Though maybe you saw the 60's when things were different...

It will be plenty loud enough that you don't need to cram in near the front so I never have and at least this year still wont, and I've had a mask in my pocket all week despite only leaving the house on Monday and today so that's second nature too.

What do you mean 60's? I have friends taking LSD and kissing strangers to this day

Although a Pink Floyd show might be better enjoyed with LSD

I shouldn't say much about the 60s as I wasn't there but I'm pretty sure they had lots of drugs with their bands at festivals.  Your friends would not be my friends even when I was young due to having completely different personalities/outlook on life, but I shouldn't judge them negatively as I'm inclined to do because they probably enjoy their lives way more than I do.

Honestly I wouldn't know either, my psychoactive drug of choice is coffee
