Get rid of landlords...
  • Exactly. There are always going to be people who take advantage of others for their own personal gain. It doesn't mean that everyone who owns property and rents it out is an evil scum bag.

  • ABC4.com: Students walk out of Utah middle school to protest 'furries'
  • In high school I hung out with all the punks and skaters. A lot of them would wear the studded jackets with patches and stuff. I didn't usually dress the part but I love punk music and I love the skate culture so I felt like I fit in there. We didn't care what anyone else thought or said to us. Social media and cell phones also weren't really a thing. Bullying is different now because of that and it's a real problem in many places. I'm sorry you had to take your daughter out of that school. I hope she knows there are people like her, who like the same kinds of music or the same kinds of clothes and that she's not a freak or a weirdo. School can be tough. Even as an adult people make jokes sometimes about the music I listen too, but you know what? I still don't care! lol

  • AI meme version 2.0... because reasons

    Apparently my other meme with nearly a 1,000 upvotes was reported and removed by mods for a rule violation. But just to clarify, the people in that photo were ACTORS posing for stock photography. No elderly people were actually being force fed while a photographer snapped shots and uploaded them to Adobe. Anyway, enjoy the happy baby! (Disclaimer: This baby may or may not be aware that it is being photographed while eating. This is not my baby, that is not my hand, and I did not take this photo.)

    Time for your medicine grandpa
  • They're the worst. Now they're actually putting features into vehicles but don't activate them unless you pay more. You already own the car with the feature existing inside of it but can't use it. What kind of bullshit is that!

  • 2 visitors captured on video destroying ancient rock formations at Lake Mead
  • As an Eagle Scout & leader in my Son's Boy Scout troop, an avid hiker, backpacker and general outdoor enthusiast... this is incredibly upsetting. This type of vandalism can't be undone. I hope they find them and throw a rock...I mean the book at them. Or both.

    Part of the Scout Outdoor Code is "...to be considerate in the outdoors." which means treat the land and other land users with respect and follow the principles of outdoor ethics for all outdoor activities.

  • Notification sounds while connected to bluetooth
  • A head unit is the actual radio hardware in a car. Some of them can be replaced with after market hardware. Yes, when my phone is connected to the radio by Bluetooth, I have to keep the unit on and set to the Bluetooth input in order to hear notification sounds. If I have it off, or set to another input I won't hear any notifications that come in.

  • Notification sounds while connected to bluetooth
  • In my state it is against the law to hold your phone while you're driving so I keep it connected by bluetooth for calls. It's not a problem when I'm listening to music or podcasts which I frequently do. It's only an issue when I'm not listening to anything. I've looked into updating the car's software but it's already on the most current version.

  • Notification sounds while connected to bluetooth

    Every 6 months or so I go looking for a solution to this problem and still haven't found one.

    When my phone (Pixel 7) is connected to my car by bluetooth, the phone itself will not make any notification sounds. It is attempting to send all notification sounds to the car. The problem is, if I am currently not listening to any media and the head unit is off, I will not hear anything at all. The only possible way to hear it, is to have the head unit on and set to bluetooth input whether or not I'm listening to anything. This was not always the case. I think it changed after Android 13 was released but I'm not 100% sure.

    Halo S02E07 - Classic Sci-Fi Easter Egg (x-post)

    I’ve been searching around for a couple of days to see if anyone noticed this. In Halo S02E07 around the 38 minute mark, Talia Perez is staring at her reflection just before Master Chief walks in to talk to her. Over the loud speaker, you can hear someone say “Tango-Hotel-Xray-one-one-three-eight”. (headphones helps) That’s a classic reference to George Lucas’ early film THX-1138. Used heavily throughout the Star Wars universe and many other films.

    Space Shuttle Discovery at the Udvar-Hazy Center

    I had been wanting to see the Space Shuttle Discovery for quite some time. I only live about 3 hours from the Udvar-Hazy Center in Washington D.C. This past weekend I finally got the chance and it was glorious! If you don't know, this was the shuttle that carried the Hubble Space Telescope into orbit.

    I found this at my local Total Wine while browsing the shelves. Not much of a detailed review here but I thought it was really good! I was curious about the chili peppers but it's hardly noticeable at all.

    Merge notification and ringtone volume again on Android 14

    Is there a way to merge the ringtone volume and notification volume so they work in conjunction like they did before the A14 update? I understand that some people like them separate, I just prefer it the other way and I wish it was optional. I haven't found anything in the settings so far.

    Lock screen clock size got smaller (SOLVED)

    This morning I woke up to the clock on my Pixel 7 lock screen being smaller than normal. I don't recall changing anything and I could not find a setting to adjust the size. The clock on my wife's and my son's Pixel 7's are both normal. Anybody know what would cause that? I've already tried restarting it as well as disabling and enabling the double-line clock setting.
