Periodic reminder about populist ideologues (youtu.be)

Seriously, if you haven’t watched this episode of the twilight zone, go and do so. Pairs well with “Don’t be a sucker” and if you’re a young voting age person who isn’t familiar with either, understand that both should be mandatory viewing before every election year (read: all years).

Drusas,

You should include the episode and season for those who don't want to open Youtube.

Drusas,

Good article. Hope they can get this archaic law changed soon.

Drusas,

That's the tactic the Democrats used in 2016 when they lost. It seemed like a slam dunk tactic to point out that anyone voting for Trump was voting for someone who commits sexual assault against women, but his voters ate it up.

Drusas,

Wouldn't call it hilarious, but definitely cute.

Drusas,

Cook sous vide then sear. Perfectly done steak.

Drusas,

Cheaters tend to be controlling in their relationships. They crave that control, so they don't actually want to be single. They just want all of the power in the relationship.

Drusas,

As a result of narcolepsy, I regularly dream while half awake (think while you're falling asleep or waking up). It can sometimes be hard to remember whether something happened in a dream or in real life when in that state.

How do you write cover letters for entry level basic jobs?

How do you write a cover letter for a job doing very basic tasks? I feel like Im either shmoozing and being way over the top, or being realistic in a way that will keep me from getting the job. For reference the job is to package coffee and make other products. I guess i just dont understand. I need a job, they need a worker....

Drusas,

It's basically schmoozing, as you said. You want to address the job duties that are mentioned in the ad and how they relate to experience that you have or how you are a good fit for doing those duties otherwise. Something, something, sharing my love of coffee, blah blah blah.

Drusas,

That's called "selling".

Drusas,

Oliver's team can spend months researching and writing individual episodes. They don't cram those main segments into a single week of writing.

Drusas,

Somehow I don't think John Oliver can quite afford to straight up offer someone 100 million dollars.

Drusas,

That was Alito. Thomas sold his legacy for a bus.

Drusas,

It was an early '90s cartoon, and yes, you needed cable to watch it.

Drusas,

It's even worse than the headline makes it sound. These are 17-year veterans, one of whom said responding to priority calls stresses him out, while the other is a trainer.

According to a case summary published late last month by the civilian-run Office of Police Accountability, it took the two officers over 20 minutes to arrive, only to report “everything looks fine” and initially write the incident off as a disturbance.

Shortly thereafter, a man showed up at Harborview Medical Center with a gunshot wound to his arm, suffered in the shooting the officers didn’t investigate, according to the case summary.

OPA found the two officers had violated professionalism standards and failed in their job to protect the community. Chief Adrian Diaz agreed with the findings, giving both officers nine-hour suspensions, which were first reported by DivestSPD, a digital site associated with the Seattle Democratic Socialists of America.

The OPA removes the names of disciplined officers from its published case summaries.

One of them, a 17-year SPD veteran, said he was relying on his experience to determine when a priority call is actually a priority. In this incident, he told OPA investigators, he was sure the victim would be gone when police arrived, which turned out to be the case.

Moreover, he said that a lights-and-siren response “heightens my stress level” and can become a public-safety issue for other drivers on the road.

“We showed up. We didn’t find a scene. We didn’t find any shell casings,” he told investigators.

The other officer, also a 17-year veteran and a training officer, speculated that they had stopped at the rank-and-file union headquarters to have dinner, take a break, get snacks or use the restroom.

He acknowledged that a “typical response” to a priority one call is: “Drop the meal, drop the report, and go.”

“[The officer] did not recall why he did not do that for this call,” the OPA case summary explains.

Drusas,

Yes, that's the type I meant.

Drusas,

Yeah, I will at least try to speak with the neighbor about it before I do anything. With the way the properties are set up, they barely even see the fence, whereas for me, it's kind of front and center in my backyard. I expect they may be surprised when I point out that it's technically their fence.

It is a chain link fence. A top rail sounds like a good idea which wouldn't be too unattractive or hard to install. I'd sure love to replace it with a proper wooden fence because the privacy in my backyard is severely lacking when they're on their front stoop or in their driveway, but with the grade and the need to remove the current fence, it would be very expensive.

Drusas,

I wish the fencing company could be on the hook for it, but I'm pretty sure that fence has been there for a few decades. No idea who installed it.

Drusas,

That doesn't look too bad.

Drusas,

I thought of that, but considering the location, definitely not.

Drusas,

Sadly does not appear possible.

Drusas,

That sure is ugly but it looks effective.

Drusas,

Grinding the ends down might be a reasonable option.

Drusas,

I wish, but my side is a retaining wall.

Drusas,

It's not about stuff, it's about space.
