    Went to Sam's to fill my TDI wagon today. 2pm drove right up to a pump. $2.95/gallon. I had just been in PA before that. $3.58/gallon in Matamoras.

    OK, tell me another country where 350 pound people fill plastic shopping bags with gasoline.
    If it isn't obvious to you that people in the USofA are different, and not in a good way, it's because you're too deep in the shit to see over the top of the pile. Not saying we're the only country with those kinds of problems. India comes to mind. How are they doing these days?

    Hey, they fill plastic bags with gas in Russia just the same and they just call it Friday night. If Vlad would let them have a few more rubles for cheeseburgers, they'd be 350 pounds too.
    Wait, how can we trust this guy^^^ He's clearly not DJSapp

    Yes it does. I’m wondering if it came with some kind of Easter egg and upon the crypto transfer some people halfway around the world found themselves on the business end of a “random” explosion.

    The Ransomware hackers do not want to make the fee too high that the company or organization just says NO WAY. I have even heard of some that reply and negiotiate the fee lower and then pay at the lower rate they negotiated.

    HOMOSASSA, Fla. (WWSB) - An SUV was destroyed Wednesday moments after its owner filled several containers with gasoline at a convenience store in Citrus County.
    Citrus County Fire Rescue responded to a call of a vehicle fire in Homosassa shortly before 11 a.m., spokeswoman Cortney Marsh said.
    The owner of the 2004 Hummer H2 had just filled four 5-gallon cans at the Texaco Food Mart on W. Grover Cleveland Boulevard.

    I moved out of cicada territory I discovered. I kinda like when they're really cranking on a still night, it's an otherworldly sound.

    It's Soo funny how they talk about this. I can remember as a kid the broods were so big entire sidewalks and streets were covered with exoskeletons. Never seen anything like that again in adulthood. They're just cool noisy bugs.

    I really talked this up with the kids in school last week....(doing an Insect unit)...and they are all anxiously awaiting their emergence.....the frost this past week probably delayed their arrival a bit. Hoping for this week/next with much warmer soil temps.....so the kids can actually see what the hell I was talking about...haha.

    Chris Krebs on The Takeout

    Christopher Krebs, the former head of the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency under President Trump, joins Major to talk about the ransomware attack on the Colonial Pipeline, the SolarWinds hack, and life during the pandemic on this week’s episode of “The Takeout with Major Garrett.”

    https://www.cbsnews.com/video/former...akeout-5142021

    (Get past the first minute and it's a pretty good discussion.)

    If I were Christopher Krebs I would like my profile to read -- "former head of the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency fired by President Trump," Otherwise people who don't know who he is might get the wrong idea or not bother to listen.

    Are BC people allowed/going to US for shopping these days? I thought the border was closed for that sort of thing?

    I'm seeing somewhere between 1 and 4 BC plates here per month lately, with the occasional AB. Normally at this time of year I'd see a dozen per day.

    I'm assuming that the few I am seeing aren't cross-border shoppers per se, but are second property owners, cross-border families, etc.

    It's the sound of humid heat and sweat glands and little winged animals biting you on the face and neck.

    There was a piece on TV last night about Port Roberts WA--tiny town on the tip of a peninsula of BC, which is the only land access. The main economy appears to be Canadians shopping. The border is closed and the economy is dying. And the locals only way out of town is a twice/week ferry (temporary during the pandemic).
