Posting a warning to your neighbors on Amazon’s Ring network is basically just soliciting mansplainers to tell you how you could’ve done more to prevent it. “You shoulda had bars on your windows and a spear pit booby trap, go get some bear mace and why didn’t you call 911 the second someone was on your property” yea I wasn’t asking for the hindsight tips I just wanted to publicly identify a possible risk.

If SSRIs are barely competing with placebo effect, have numerous side effects, and they are dangerous to stop taking why don't we just try to make more serotonin in the gut

as is, I pay more rent in order to have a dedicated parking space, and then also my taxes are contributing to the public subsidy program known as first-come-first-fuck-you street parking.

Anywhere the city tries to put in parking meters for people that value their time and sanity, residents lose their shit because their personal finance plan assumed free parking. Nevermind that no parking solution is free, let alone the current one with its inconsistently enforced punitive fines.

Every few months I jump into a local politics discussion on Reddit to remind them that street parking wouldn't be such a nightmare if we would just ration out permits to residents and charge a fair fee to cover the management of the program

And every time I get downvoted to negative territory because in CA the mainstream opinion is that every taxpayer is entitled to easy and plentiful free street parking and any failure to live in that fantasy is an incompetent and corrupt bureaucrat's fault.

So Chrome's way to compete with Firefox's tracking protection Is to make the settings look the same but Instead of actually blocking trackers you just send more data to Google. Read the small print. You can't tell me that Google didn't try to trick people with this settings page.
