    • @zeldatra My town's got about three places to cross its titular river. One is a freeway, another turned out to be closed with no warning, and the third had some wantwit who managed to cause an ambulance-worthy crash at a mere 10-15 MPH.

    • @scribus more or less why getting to Maryland from here is such a hassle despite the town literally being on the state line. Should take five minutes. Ends up taking an hour and a half because there are only two bridges across the Potomac.

  5. If I had to guess, I would wager that Fiverr made their webpage with high schoolers hired off of Craigslist. I haven't seen an interface this godrotten awful since I tried using Gmail. Why does nobody have any clue how people use computers, when we all use them all day every day??

  6. I drove about 1200km (745 miles) this weekend. I visited my grandparents and picked up my mother back home. I drove most of the time 150km/h (93 mph) and needed only 5 hours for each direction. I'm somewhat exhausted.

  7. Thought I was getting pulled over today on my drive home from a friend’s house. Pulled to the side, he sped right past me. Wherever he was going, every single cop in the county was also going because I saw about twenty squad cars all heading in the same direction at various points during the drive.

  10. Also a friend and I have been trying to write a script for a live-action comedy film centering around a guy who spends years undercover in a New York crime family, it’s set in the 2020s, and I watching this while thinking about that made me think about how there aren’t that many mafia films set in the modern day, it’s all about the 70s and 80s and stuff, The Sopranos is probably as modern as it gets. Would be interesting to explore how the mob operates in the internet age and in a post-9/11 world. Frank Cali was assassinated by a QAnon supporter. That’s insane. The boss of the Gambino crime family, who ran the show for years, got taken out by some guy who thought Trump wanted him to because he was told so on 4Chan. Not gonna see that kiwi in Goodfellas.

  13. It's really depressing to see the infection rate rising so fast. In average Germany has about 300 infections per 100000 people in a week. Some districts have a rate of 1200 per 100000 in a week. Just WTF man. I live where it's way lower than average but still freaky. https://experience.arcgis.com/experience/478220a4c454480e823b17327b2bf1d4

  14. The recent (non-canon) Simpsons two-parter “A Serious Flanders” was a lot of fun, but I feel like the first part gives itself away as non-canon too quickly by having Burns get shot (and killed, this time) during a shootout. The episode’s other deaths were Rich Texan, Disco Stu, and Fat Tony & his goons, and in an early version of the script, Agnes Skinner, all of whom i 100% believe they would kill off for shock value. But by having Mr. Burns be one of the ones to get bumped off the episode suddenly loses some of the drama.

  18. Lubing my bike chains was a success. Cycling feels a little bit more smoother now. I think I have a little bit less resistance so I could cycle with one higher gear than usual with the same force. Maybe my brain tricks me thinking that. At least the gunk is scrubbed off. I wonder why there are no more bike chain covers that attempt to fully enclose the chain.

    • @adiwan I think stuff like that and tire fenders fell out of favor due to so-called "weight weenies" but I know less than Jon Snow so.... :p

      about a month ago in context
    • @scribus Tire fenders are practically standard here as well as half-enclosed chain guards. Also a rack is basically standard, except for mountain and racing bikes. I just looked up and I found some after-market fully-enclosed chain guards. Only "Holland bikes" have the fully-enclosed bike chain guard out of the box. I guess I never put that much attention to that feature.

  27. Welp... I have now 3 bikes. The newest addition is a folding bike. I got a used one for 120€ in a pretty good condition. I only have to add a dynamo and lights. The bell works but it is very prone of ringing by itself on a bumpy road, so I get a new one.

  28. Got a note from a Republican running for office in my district claiming to want me to reach out to chat with him about his platform. Did just that, because his platform was appleing insane and would be more at-home in Nazi Germany. Am eagerly awaiting the response I am totally going to get

    • @zeldatra That is outright ghastly and entirely un-shocking. Have they started saying that 1/6 was "just a little riot" like MTG?

    • @scribus This is more or less the last time in probably a while that Republicans have a shot at winning a statewide election in Virginia, historically we’ve always voted against the incumbent party no matter what but that anti-White House sentiment, while not totally gone (Biden won the state by ten points but polling shows the race as a toss-up) is kind of diminishing (we used to see swings of like twenty points, now it’s closer to five) and by 2025 it’ll probably be gone entirely, so this entire campaign has just been a big last-ditch effort to maybe hold Richmond one last time. Nothing is too low if you’re going out anyway.

    • @scribus Glenn Youngkin for his part has tried to distance himself from Trump and January 6th mostly because he can’t afford for the DC suburbs to turn out against him and that’s exactly what they’ll do if they think he’s too much like Trump.

  30. Here’s the thing. I didn’t *really* know her all that well. I’ve been at this store for two months and we worked in different departments. But I know her husband. We worked the evening shift together almost every night at my last store. Dude’s torn up right now and I feel so bad for him. Don’t mango talk his dead wife to me, or we’re gonna have major problems that involve your head and your ass meeting one another for the first time in your life.
