Apple's Look Around and Google's Streetview are great, but you might not want your property visible on it for whatever reason. You can request blurring on both systems and it takes only a few minutes.
Apple Maps' process is very easy. An email to [email protected] with a request was all it took for me. How our property looks in Apple's Look Around and Google Streetview now (Apple's is very Minecrafty!)
Google Maps is a bit more involved.
Apple took a couple of days, Google a bit longer.
Edit: for those who seem so against this, please post your home's full address in the comments. (Joking, duh.)
After Chris Paul tugged on LeBron James' shoulder on a box-out, LeBron James collapsed to the floor and stayed there while Cameron Payne and Montrezl Harrell got into a scuffle. LeBron James then got back up, held his shoulder as he walked to the sideline, fell to one knee, got back up and then acquired a seemingly out-of-no-where limp.
I've never understood why some women want the toilet seat to be left down. If anything men are lazy and will try to aim into the hole between the seat, even if we don't pee on the seat, a little spray will always make its way onto the seat.
A toilet seat left up is a sure sign of a toilet seat that has not been peed on recently / sprayed and I'm sure women don't enjoy getting little bits of pee on their butts
edit: all these posts about people falling into toilets really has me worried

Why YSK: It's nice to not have the entire world easily see what your house looks like with a simple Google search and click.
Delivered something to a house today and when I arrived Google maps showed it as Blurred out on the GPS app. Only one on the street. Never seen anything like it. Anyways, I did some research and here's how you do it:.
Go to Google Maps and enter your home address.
Enter into Street View mode by dragging the small yellow human-shaped icon, found in the bottom-right corner of the screen, onto the map in front of your house.
With your house in view, click "Report a problem" in the bottom-right corner of the screen.
Center the red box on your home, and select "My home" in the "Request blurring" field.
Post an opinion and see if anyone can change it
There’s been this news article on the BBC today about calls to ban bosses sending emails outside of work hours. Whats your view on this?
To me, the solution is simple... just don’t check your work emails outside of work hours.
Don’t put work emails on your personal devices and don’t go on your work devices outside of work hours. If you have to use a personal device to access email, then log out when you finish work and don’t log in until you’re back at work. It really is that simple in my opinion.
The article mentions the ‘pressure’ of having to check emails, or the concept of work taking over with things such as logging on before breakfast. But surely if your boss hasn’t asked you to work those hours, you’re just putting the pressure on yourself? And if your boss has asked you to work those hours, you’ll have agreed to it as part of employment terms?
The way I think of it is: What if your boss works different hours to you? Or is out of the country so emailing at their standard business hours? Or what if they’re out of office for a few days and need to get a few things over before they’re away? There are so many valid reasons for sending an email at any time. But it doesn’t mean that you need to keep checking to see if anyone emailed you outside of work hours.
I’ve been office based for 10 years now. I get emails all sorts of hours from both my management, my colleagues and clients. Clients aren’t just U.K. based, so emails come at anytime. But they can wait... I just don’t check. Even non-U.K. clients get U.K. office hour replies. Anyone expecting otherwise will be met with response containing my working hours.
If I don’t check, I don’t know they’re there until I next log in for work. No pressure.
Of course, that’s my experience and my opinion. I’m genuinely interested in hearing others opinions and experiences on this.
I feel like this is a safe space to post this since every time someone says anything about men they get attacked and called an “crazy feminist” or whatever. And listen I get there’s some women out there who are just fucking gone in the head. But goddamn the things I see men post online every day....makes me think differently of them.
I see videos on the daily of guys being straight up horrible to women. I just saw a video of a teenage girl hitting a Tesla and you can see in the video that it was a complete accident (sucks that it happened to be a Tesla) but regardless she was obviously young and inexperienced. But the comment section were just bullying this teenage girl saying horrible shit. Then there’s videos of guys straight up bullying women. Then there’s all the videos of women recording their experiences with being followed or harassed. And guys saying we’re exaggerating.
It’s not even online too. In my friend group more than half my friends have been sexually assaulted. (Not saying it can’t also happen to men)
Anyway what I’m trying to say is that watching this happen is depressing and I just needed to rant about it. I wonder if anyone here feels the same way I do.
Let me start by saying that I don't think we've entered a bear market. As others have said, I think the dip we're experiencing now is similar to what happened in September 2017 (China fud, of course) during the last bull run, which was a minor blip (crashing from around 5k to 3k) before going on to make a new ath of 20k just 3 months later. But obviously I don't know what's going to happen next anymore than the rest of you.
Either way, if or when a prolonged bear market does arrive, you don't necessarily have to see this as being such a bad thing.
Thanks to the 2-3 years of accumulating during the last bear market, I was able to accumulate over 10x the amount of crypto that I had during the bull market, even though that 10x was actually worth less in fiat value come March 2020 (I was down 50% after 2 and a half years in this game. Not a wonderful feeling at the time I've got to say). Those painful days, weeks, months and years turned out to be an absolute blessing in disguise. I don't have a high paying job, and I never would have come close to owning the amount of crypto that I currently own had the prices continued to go up and up.
The previous bear market put me in a great position entering this bull run. I've even started profit taking for the first time and have managed to take out all of my initial investment while still keeping a significant amount of crypto, way more than I could have imagined in 2017.
Just like you, I want to see the prices going up, and would really rather not enter another bear market right now. But sometimes the things we want are not necessarily what we need, and sometimes the things we fear the most can actually turn out to be the best thing that can happen for us.
To tweak a Warren Buffet quote:
the stock market Crypto is a device for transferring money from the impatient to the patient.”
Bear or bull, patience is the key.
