Sometimes in the exact same condition as when they were stolen, other times totaled. They’re most often stolen to commit crimes, according to police.

    The Honda Civic carjacking? The victim is a single mom working two jobs. She was picking up her 3-month-old baby from daycare when she was carjacked at gunpoint. The cops felt sorry for her and immediately fed her info into “the system,” but days later she’s still without a car. All so gang members can use her car to shoot at people out the window.

    Chicago Cops say teenagers are the largest numbers of carjacking arrests, nearly all of them gang members. They’re as young as 13. This pandemic has really fucked things up.

    "absurd" millennial humor sucks.

    Memes in general suck. They're not funny, and the general progression of meme-based humor is actually depressing. It's a bunch of unimaginative people being boring and regurgitating "jokes" that weren't even funny to start with.
    It's just getting stupider. You thought "enslaved moisture" was dumb? You thought Pewdiepie was annoying? Just wait until these "comedians" lose their virginity and get "edgy." God it's gonna suck.

    Here's a preview.



    This. is. not. funny.

    There. is. NO. joke. here.

    For the sake of a functioning society, everyone who laughs at this sort of stuff should be shot in the face.

    I was aware that the police - to protect and serve - aren't legally required to do either of those things. I was not aware that you are!

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Refusi...police_officer

    Various jurisdictions require an individual to assist a law enforcement officer when requested, to varying levels of criminal punishment, from violation to misdemeanor

    Tim Horton's app-based "roll up the rim" prize game, it was changed from using the rim of the paper coffee cups where you would check a specific area for a prize. They started doing this last year just when COVID hit but fuck i hate this change and would have preferred they left it the way it used to be. Non-Canadians prob have no idea what I'm talking about LOL

    Buddy I know this is the "things that piss you off" thread, but if you think absurdist humor on the internet is a millennial thing, put down that Powerthirst and watch some Taco the Wonder Dog.

    I'm tagging a specific kind of absurdist humor there... but yeah, there's always been moments of just blank "WTF is the point of anything anymore" humor, but I feel it wasn't so celebrated and mindlessly parroted, and then devolved into strange repetitions of the concept where the initial non-point is even further lost.

    I'm not someone clutching their pearls and saying I wish all absurdist humor could be as "great as Monty Python" or something, but after a while you just feel desperate for a point.

    I have this issue of picking up speech patterns and phrases from people. The past year the people I interact with diminished substantially - I wonder what happened? - and this has meant I interact with my wife's family more. specifically her brother, since we babysit his kid. He's not a bro but he does say bro a lot and I...this is a safe space, right?...I have started saying bro.

    Mostly it's in my internal monologue but it has slipped audibly once or twice. Once in a text message to someone at work and I was aghast at the thought. Seriously, I just used the word "aghast" so I hope you see what I mean. I'm not Frasier or anything but

    So we've done ALL this shit to get my wife the hep c cure. We got a letter saying insurance would cover it for $700, and that they were sending it to a specialty pharmacy in Florida.
    But then, they didn't cover it at THAT pharmacy, and they've transferred it to ANOTHER specialty pharmacy. And now, THAT pharmacy is waiting on confirmation of coverage. But we already got the fucking letter from the insurance company saying "yeah, we'll cover it, for $724." Idk if they sent it to the wrong pharmacy?
    Anyway, meanwhile, she is living on nutrition shakes and puking her guts up if at any given time she doesn't have enough thc and promethazine in her system.
    And the cirrhosis is JUST ABOUT to set in, or, rather, it was when the testing was done, weeks ago. It may already be happening.

    I'm on the edge of my fucking seat, here. It's like, YAY, she's getting it, but then, no, wait, but then, the OTHER pharmacy calls, but, yeah, they'll call us back soon...

    And it's like, please just let us buy the fucking goddamn medicine, or, DON'T, and let us proceed with trying to get help from the drug company or whatever.

    Fucking bureaucracy and red tape with a literal life and death matter is infuriating and horrifying.

    this is the "little things that piss you off" thread, so I'm just going to say that reading this rant a friend of mine just threw onto social media is making me wanna scream.
    Why would you make a post talking about how people shouldn't say they have PTSD unless they actively served in the military?

    Do you understand that people can be traumatized without signing up for it? Goddamn it I hate people sometimes...

    I've been thinking about this one today.
    I mean, I use words like aghast, and ostensibly, and dichotomy, and analogous. I bemoan dangling participles on a daily basis, because they are EVERYWHERE narration occurs.

    I ALSO say "y'all" and "ain't no" and "you've got me fucked up" and "throwed to the game." I end sentences with "yanawmean?" and "you feel me?"
    I call people "that fool" so and so.

    Idk. My diction, both internal and spoken, is that of a well read, decently educated person, but it's also interspersed with southern and street culture, as, that's part of who I am, too.

    And, well, that's, you feel me, ok, bro.

    Believe having dichotomy of personality makes people more fun. I have and use a pretty diverse vocabulary that makes some people look at me weird. I like throwing in the occasional ya'll, even though I was raised to not do so.
    I love attending the opera when I can, love NIN and also listen to some modern country with everything in between. I take online cooking classes from Truffle Shuffle, have an outrageous wine habit, and still love Taco Bell when the moment strikes. I may or may not have actually lit a fart on fire. I love black tie events.

    So I just found out that I live in what is literally the "most strongly Republican congressional district in the country."

    It's not in Alabama, or Mississippi, or West Virginia. It's right here in the Texas Panhandle, where I was born, and once again reside.Remember this, next time you think YOU'RE surrounded by idiots and assholes.

    I've got a question, though: what happened? It says here that the majority of the political offices in this district were held by democrats until the late NINETIES. It's gotta have SOMETHING to do with farming, I think, but I'm not sure.

    I'm guessing gerrymandering.

    Look at this. Look carefully at the number of votes for Democrat and Republican candidates per election. Watch what happens to those numbers starting in 1996.

    That's likely due to gerrymandering (redistricting). In 2010 and 2012, not one single Democrat even ran?

    That wasn't an accident.

    My favorite deodorant changed their formula. The scent is now 1) WAY TOO STRONG, and 2) no longer is sold in the one "flavor" I could tolerate smelling that strongly. Time to spin the wheel on brands again, I guess.

    Try Old Spice Wilderness. It's floral and smells like lavender and heaven.

    even though they're more expensive (stupid pink tax) i would say that "women's" deodorants in general are way less overpowering. the secret aluminum free coconut scent is what i've been using for a while and it's so pleasant and subtle. i'm also a big sweater and i've gone three days without showering and don't smell, thanks to it.

    Thanks for the tip. I'm at the end of my last stick of antiperspirant and wanted to switch to just a deodorant to see if that helps at all. I sweat a lot as well (especially my fucking hands which is gross and frustrating) and despite this stuff being 48 hours, I smell quite ripe after about 10.

    ooh, and it doesn't even have baking soda in the ingredients list! tysm!

    I am so grateful for whatever trend is generating more hygiene product scents that aren't limited to "overpowering flower garden" or "Blue Smell for Men".

    or Old Spice Krakengard, or Swagger, or any of a whole hell of a lot of their scents.
    I have to have the shampoo, body wash and body spray, too: I have a touch of ocd in that area.

    Also, @eversonpoe , here's a fun fact: in lock up, most of the men use women's deodorant- in fact, secret is the one you can get on commissary. Anyone who's been to jail more than once knows that the women's deodorant works better, has a less powerful scent, and is easier on the skin, compared to the men's brands that are available.
    It's funny to see all these gangbangers and murderers using women's deodorant.

    There was recently an application process where any civilian artist or "creative person" could interview for a chance to go to the moon THE MOON!
    I pre-registered skipping around in excitement at the chance, then minded my own business for a few weeks while waiting for the next stage of the application
    I MISSED IT GODDAMMIT!
    Here's the website to further elaborate:
    https://dearmoon.earth/
    Can't wait for the next chance to go, if there is one!
