I normally don’t do any political commentary in the forums I participate in, but…I was incredibly disappointed that Biden honored the US-Taliban agreement that was arranged by the Trump administration. I remember how weird I felt watching the signing ceremony in Feb 2020 and how people were celebrating it and how pleased Pompeo looked as a witness. I’m not very politically savvy and definitely don’t know enough about it, but am still disappointed.

Humans!

I went out to get bits for wifey and had people walking into me 80 times in 90 minutes.

It would be ok at most times but I am one who screams wizard with my 6’ 2" frame and 124kg of mass. With a face that looks like it took 3 shotgun rounds to it and has.

Phones: my current phone just died and most apps want an active phone. So a huge hassle reset comms.

I’m so pissed off. Our insurance won’t cover the septic flood because it was clogged and not an act of nature. The damage is astounding, 3 rooms, three closets laundry room and hallway need to have tiles, baseboards, some studs, some paneling and Drywall replaced. What kills me is that we had just totally redid 2 rooms and a closet all the way to the studs. Fuck me!

@natbone WOW !! So sorry this happened. It sucks when you buy insurance and then find out it doesn’t cover what you need it to cover. I feel for you, especially since you just did so much work on 2 rooms and a closet.

There’s always a bright side though. My wife and I have done all the work… I do about 85% of it…and it’s been challenging but rewarding. Now we get to learn some new things.

I finally figured out what DIY in the home means. It means learning many ways to fix the fuck-ups I make.

I hate it when EVERY electronic device in the house starts beeping emergency tones, and on the Weather site, there are TEN alerts.

So… ‘We’ll pay criminals to NOT act like a criminal.’

Hairbrained ideas like this is why I’ve been waiting for 30+ years for California to fall off into the ocean.

Same goes for NY. With such “gems” as FSC (‘fire safe cigarettes’) and trying to regulate the size of soft drinks, etc.

Driving home from town yesterday whilst listening to the local radio station news and heard this.

“There is a rising epidemic of teenagers using vaping products containing according to the anti-cancer foundation of Australia. The nicotine is being masked using flavouring such as lemonade and dessert flavours. These products are readily available to teenagers and only cost around $5 for a product which gives hundreds of doses. The anti-cancer foundation is extremely worried about this usage as vaping is a relatively new technology that has only been around for ten years so the risks are unknown as opposed to tobacco use.”

I find this absolutely flabbergasting and so wrong in so many ways. That is is being touted on a nationally syndicated news broadcasting service and contains non-factual information that almost sounds like it is saying smoking is the lesser evil is both disgusting and astounding to me.

Our so called “foundations” are dependent not only on donations from the public, but also funding from Governments and big companies for their research. So as far as I am concerned this makes their every action questionable as they have a vested interest NOT to stop smoking, or to find a cure for cancer when you think about it as they would then be without a purpose. :rage: :rage: :rage:
