Well the cat’s out of the bag on this one, but it doesn’t matter because now I have justification to reinstate previous, more stringent cell phone rules.
My daughter is 16 and as most 16 year olds, she has her own phone with less parental control. But I still have sensible rules like no turning off iphone tracking, always answer my texts or calls immediately or within a reasonable time frame when not in school or practice, no dead battery excuses. But I know teenagers can be sneaky, so I have a backup tracking plan that I keep secret from her. I have an extra older version iphone on my family plan that I use as an emergency phone. I hide this phone somewhere in the car that I let my daughter drive, kept on silent. It’s always charged so I can track it when my daughter is out.
This past weekend, my daughter told me she was going to her friend Brett’s house to prepare for an academic competition and an oratory event. When I checked on her iphone and the secret iphone, the locations m... keep reading on reddit ➡
It doesn’t necessarily have to be an exotic or classic. I am interested in hearing stories about your oddball car that’s a daily driven vehicle. I’m just curious if anyone here daily drives a car that the average person would probably not even consider.
For instance, maybe someone here dailies a 1970’s VW Beetle. Idk!
I’m just curious what the experience is like. How’s the reliability? How’s maintenance? How is it running errands in your car? What do your friends/family/co-workers think? Etc
There are typically like 50 spots open in the back of any given parking lot, yet people (and a lot of people I ride with) would rather drive around the rows looking for one closer to the entrance of the store rather than just walk the extra 75 feet. What is the point?
The movie drive apparently brought the synthwave movement into the mainstream.
I've spent the last 4-5 days doing research and writing an article about typography and 80s fonts. At the end of the article I dedicated a section to synthwave design and the movie Drive. I found some very interesting information about the roots of sythwave design elements like the chrome text, neon lights, the laser grid, etc.
My article was mainly focused on 1980s typography, so I also tried to reproduce the typography present on the Drive movie poster. Here are my attempts:
Looking forwards to your feedback on this article.

After a strong debut in 2019, the Netflix series "Drive to Survive" is back for season two! The season will be available on Netflix shortly, so we thought it would be a good time for a megathread.
In this thread, you can find all discussion on this series. We will try to keep this thread up-to-date as best we can.
Please do not post other discussion threads on the subreddit. Thank you very much.

I've been able to dismiss his shit about every wrestler he dislikes and his violent bullshit as hyperbolic.
But something about his review of the Orange Cassidy/PAC match made me realize he's just a fucking prick.
He said he would like OC to jump over the rope, catch his feet on the rope and isn't sure if he "would like to see his neck go sideways or just have his brains spill out."
For him to say this about a wrestler after many wrestlers have suffered death or paralysis after in ring broken necks made me realize I can't listen to this smarmy momma's boy anymore.
I don't care if marijuana isn't on par with alcohol's impairment; you are still under the influence!
Slower reaction times, more prone to zoning out and distractions, added anxiety...while it may differ for everyone, don't get behind the wheel unless you're clear in the head.
Edit: This post is now controversial. I didn't know this was a frequent PSA, because I'm not too active on the sub. Honestly, I don't see the harm in recirculating a safety message.
If you agree, I'd congratulate you on not having an inflated ego. As far as I'm concerned, you can get screwed if you insist on driving while impaired, and I make no apologies for it.
Edit II: I've bolded the part y'all should be concerned most about, since some of you are so quick to jump. Tolerance is relative. If you're good you're good. But if you're not, you're not.

I'm very happy to replace my problem-riddled 2013 Hyundai Elantra with a crossover SUV, and I strongly considering a Subaru Outback or Forester. (My husband and I are already planning our camping trips.) But I've never driven a Subaru before, so test drives are going to be huge here.
So this morning, I went to my local Subaru dealer, explained to the salesman that I was at the early stages of car-buying and am leaning toward Subaru, spent time looking at both models side by side, discussing trims and so on. Although I had already mentioned a test-drive, I asked if I could take an Outback on a test drive. The salesman told me that it's standard policy for Subaru to not allow test drives of any vehicles, new or used, until I sit down and meet with them for 1-2 hours to secure financing and negotiate the final price of the vehicle. I was so flabbergasted, I didn't know what to say. He weakly volunteered that I could drive it (with him as a passenger) around the parking lot.

I posted this article because I feel like it parallels one of the main benefits of FI – More freedom to pursue jobs and activities that you deem as higher value.
To briefly summarize, there was a pilot project in Ontario that saw roughly 4000 people receive universal basic incomes (UBI) over the course of 13-17 months. It would have been a 3-year study, but the provincial government decided to scrap the program half-way through. So take the results with a grain of salt. That said, the items that stuck out as most interesting were that:
What does this tell us? It could mean that these people derived value other than money from their jobs. However, I'd say it's difficult to definitively conclude that since participants were aware that this was a sh... keep reading on reddit ➡
Ever since I’ve been with my SO, JNMIL, JNFIL and JNBIL have been pains in the butt. I’ll give a little history before I delve into JNMIL’s latest inconsiderate request. JNMIL practices what I call “extreme misogyny” where she believes that women don’t talk back to men, women are to serve men and men are to be financially supported by their female partner. From the first time I met her where she growled “a woman serves her man” at me when supper was served and I didn’t immediately get a plate for my SO, to offering to stay with us the week after the birth so that my SO can “get the rest he needs” (essentially to ensure he doesn’t have to take care of the baby, making it my job), it’s been a nightmare of her hating on me. Just to clarify, she had no intention of coming to help with the baby, that offer was her way of telling me that it is not my place to expect my SO’s help to care for our newborn. When we told her and JNFIL about our pregnancy, their first response was telling us we wo... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I(20f), my parents and two other familys decided to go on a week long spa vacation to the italian part of the Alps.
One day part of our group decided to do a bit of sightseeing, me included, and took a bus to the nearest city. The bus ride took about 20 minutes.
On our was back our bus driver was a young man, probably in his mid-twenties. One stop after we got on two young men, also mid-twenties, got on who clearly were very good friends with the bus driver.
After a few stops the bus driver asked us where we wanted to get off, we told him our stop and then he got back to talking to his friends.
Then something strange happened: The bus got off its official route. At first we didn't notice but after some time we realized this wasn't the way back to our hotel. After some time the bus stopped in the middle of nowhere right in front of a house, no official bus stop im sight. The first friend got off.
Then we realized the bus driver was driving his friends home. My mom asked him if... keep reading on reddit ➡
My wife got her second DUI about a month ago and lost her driver's license. She got her first about six months ago and we had a big fight about it. She's always been a heavy drinker, and she's in an industry where going out for drinks with clients and coworkers is fairly routine. I don't really drink. The occasional beer. It was her first citation, but not the first time she'd driven under the influence. After that, I suggested she get help, she exploded, I got mad, she got mad, things were better for a bit, then came the second DUI in January.
Thankfully, I think this was the wakeup call she needed. She's started going to AA meetings, she just got her 30-day chip, and it looks like she's on the right track.
I'm glad for that, but I'm still really mad at her. She was stupid and careless and put herself and others at risk, and now our household is inconvenienced by having only one licensed driver. So I've been refusing to drive her anywhere. Sometimes I'm legitimately busy and need to... keep reading on reddit ➡
I live in the UK where our house’s sometimes can be wildly different even on the same street. That isn’t the norm usually but due to post war building etc in some areas there’s a mishmash.
I have a drive which is quite wide, enough to fit 3-4 cars. I haven’t bothered to build any walls or fences on either side since the property came basically gutted which is how I could afford the house in the first place. My neighbours can reach my drive/ front yard I guess Americans would call it on foot and quite easily although there’s a paved path on either side that acts as a boundary. The neighbour on my left has a small drive enough to fit 1 car and the neighbour on my right has a large fancy front garden but no drive. There are resident permits required to park on the road.
Since I moved in at the start of 2018, I’ve noticed sporadically the neighbours would park in my drive. Since I could fit my own car and my girlfriends car in there, I didn’t mind. However since then I think their 17/... keep reading on reddit ➡
Things got so ugly even the Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt issued a statement, saying the defense's actions "had disgraced the organization as well as the community."
For his part, DT said this:
>"I allowed a situation to get out of hand. For that, I apologize to my teammates who were on the field with me. I jeopardized our ability to win a football game. I sincerely apologize and say to them my actions of last evening will never occur again.
>"I have to take this week and evaluate Derrick Thomas and come back and be the best that I can be for my team and for my teammates."
As for the first ballot HoF trash-talker Shannon Sharpe, he was pretty bemused with the whole affair, saying:
>"Not many guys can trash-talk a guy into getting suspended by his own team. It was my finest moment."
As of press time, Sharpe has still not admitted what he said to get DT so riled up.
One of the worst missed calls in NBA history. Crazy to see and luckily should change the rules for the future. An absolutely egregious call, never to be replicated again. Woj is spot on with this assessment and hopefully the league does not fine Dame, the coach or anyone else. Melo should be fined for his horrible shooting and selfish game at the end.

Like the tittle says, one of my colleagues bought a bunch of USB Drives on Ebay. 148GB Capacity for like 10$ a piece. He showed them to me once he got them and it looked to me like a nice typical USB Scam, so I run a bunch of tests for their capacity and it turns out the Real Capacity of said drives is 32GB. How can you work in IT and be scammed this way, your common sense should function better than this, how in earth did you fall for that.
They didn't say anything in their post. They said in the description it was legit. Not like this particular other listing that said "Capacity 256GB but only 16GB are usable".
Now I'm seriously considering blocking Internet Access to this Sysadmin because I'm afraid he could potentially try and download more Ram or something like that.
I test drove a Focus RS yesterday and I was absolutely shocked I didn't love it. I've wanted one - or at least thought I did - virtually since the car was first announced.
The one I drove was modified, although I'm not sure to what extent. I didn't think it sounded particularly good, although the pops were pretty fun. I think I'd get tired of them quickly though if I owned the car.
The suspension didn't feel any worse than my Fiesta, and I made sure to cycle through the drive modes. I tested it on roads I wasn't familiar with, so maybe they're just better than where I usually drive 🙃 Either way this surprised me for the better.
It was objectively quicker than my Fiesta, but it absolutely didn't feel any quicker. This was the biggest surprise to me. Previously the fastest car I had driven was an '03 350Z, but I haven't owned that car in almost 5 years so I expected it to feel really quick. Now, I didn't get an opportunity to really launch it,... keep reading on reddit ➡
