The UN has a treaty barring the use of weather manipulation as a weapon. They totally didn’t make this treaty because the US was doing it daily in Vietnam.

They carry the title in company. Just as Ambassador follows you for life even if you are not curryAmbassadoring anywhere.

Don’t buy paper metals. If you don’t hold it in your hand you don’t own it.

Silver Eagles and Canadian Leafs are typically seen as premium coins. People know them well and I don’t think there’s any reports of fake or low quality coins coming from them. Other governments offer coins and of course anybody can make and sell one, but they have lesser reputations.

Bars are heavier, and their higher value makes them a little more difficult to use. They stack better, though.

Sterling can often be found at estate sales and auctions at good prices. I think it’s 90% silver. It can also have additional value to collectors. But oz to oz, you should be able to get about 90% of silvers market price. Figure it’s a bit harder to move and stack than a coin or bar.

It’s harder to find these days, but junk silver is an interesting play. Our coins used to have or be made entirely of silver. I think Morgan dollars are 90% pure, roughly 0.7 oz of silver. Pre-1965 dimes are worth about $2 each and would be really easy to trade if SHTF. When I was a kid my dad used to pay me to go through change to find the silver coins. I’d open a role, pull silver and roll it back up. He’d take the change back to the bank and get more whenever I felt like working.

Paper gold isn’t backed by real gold. They make up as much paper gold as they need to get the price where they want it. If they have to pay out, they sell more paper to raise funds and drop the price before paying out. It’s a pyramid scheme.

Years ago paper metal had an option to be redeemable for metal. Most just took the cash because it’s way easier to move digital currency. But apparently London was having problems when people tried to get their gold.

Also, get applause and positive reactions from the crowd, putting organizers in the worst possible position.

What's different? JCP was delisted in 2020. Its stock was worthless. Creditors had to take it over.

Those guards weren’t really protecting him. The crowd just wasn’t angry enough to do more than embarrass him.

It's never been proven that Macron rims children. But he certainly rims his tranny pedo-wife.

You are also more likely to find 13s and 17's because you're looking for them (frequency illusion).

And double digits starting with 1's are going to appear way more often than double digits starting with 9's (ballot analysis taught me that).

Those numbers can be interesting. Just know some of the reasons why they seem to appear a lot.

To me, zero delta posts and the chans asking Trump to say "tippy top" are way more powerful as a potential proof.

Thank you for writing this up. Many of these proofs are really garbage. I'm pretty good picking stuff apart but often our mods are stickying crap that nobody understands.

Anywho...why has nobody been hitting up the Q clock? I remember that was all the rage for a while.

If your agent were any good they would have suggested you switch before you complained.

If reserves drop, the market is doing poorly, losses are generally high, they want more profits or an insurer thinks they are over represented in a market they will raise their rates. Very few people switch insurance any given year and that gets actuaried into the decision.

Figure right now inflation sucks. That means losses cost more to cover. Rates and deductibles will adjust to share the risk. If you haven’t seen rates increasing substantially before they simply have to catch up. Safeco might well have been holding out to try and gain market share, too.

Find yourself a local Independent Insurance Agent. They can shop your needs across many different companies with a single application. Most of the “branded” agents are working just with one company.

And remember that commissions are the same for everybody and the same carrier, so you’re buying on service. Find an agent who wants to understand your needs and is good on follow up. Mine has gone to bat for me a few times and rattled cages to get claims resolved faster and more in my favor.

Also, take a closer look at the Mutual insurance companies. They are technically owned by policy holders. They’re kind of like credit unions vs banks.

Aldi chicken is regional. In the mid Atlantic it comes from Mountaire in Delaware. They seem to be a decent producer.

Tell everybody you’re a dumbass without saying you’re a dumbass.

This isn’t math. It’s a document outline. You use them when you create large, complicated documents where you need to quickly reference specific information.

Page xxii shows how this works. If you can read and make sense of a Table of Contents it will be very obvious that x.3 comes before x.23, where x = any given section. I hope explaining it in algebra (that’s a kind of math) helps you grasp this concept. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.

I also think it has to be so bad the news can't ignore it.

My folks have spent many decades watching the news. They still don't have a clue that the media displays bias. As my mom said - "If it was really that bad it would be on news!"

A couple points to consider here...

  1. If this happens, the Dems will be taken down so low nobody will vote for them for a generation and they won't be able to walk down the street. When it comes down to it, their viability as a political party will be destroyed and their very existence will be threatened. If that happens, they will go through a death blossom. We know this will happen because Dems want to "fundamentally transform" America, ruling over ashes instead of giving up control. So basically they'll fire all their ammo indiscriminately in all directions in a last ditch effort to survive. We have not seen that yet.

  2. You won't know you've gotten to the precipice until things are really bad and then things start getting better. Are they really bad yet? Not really...I doubt that Lawfare is the worst they can do. Have they gotten better? Nope. Exposing things to the public isn't justice.

Looks more like arcing from electric cables. Electricity powers all the lights, including warning lights on top of the bridge.
