I cannot understand what the economic benefits to doing this are.
But it’s a definite South Florida Thing so uh
Enjoy sharing the road with that
Florida was just called for Trump. The Hillary Clinton campaign had stated they don’t *need* Florida to win, but that makes the results even more uncertain since Florida has a big heaping slug of electoral votes.
The future of the US economy even rides on this shitshow of an episode of election theatre.
If Trump wins, it will be a massive blow to… pretty much everything. If Clinton wins, it’s hard to say what will change. Sure, she’ll be the first female president, but it’s hard to say if we’ll notice anything else.
I probably don’t get to go home tonight (or will it be tomorrow?) until we know who we have as a president. Now, one interesting thing I noticed— I went over into our breakroom where the television there is tuned to another station, the local ABC affiliate. (It’s usually just left there so some of our employees can watch daytime soaps on there). They were speaking on there about the results of some very interesting polls – not as to who someone would choose as president, but rather, whether or not they hold any confidence in their current system of government.
The results were pretty much a resounding NO.
Oops, I guess not everyone likes oligarchy, unless they’re on the rich side of the wall. (Sorry, Drumpf, I will never forgive you for your desire to wall off Mexico.)
In the end— does it even matter who is elected president? No matter what, we will still wake up tomorrow in a system of oligarchy. Both houses of Congress will be dominated by the GOP. The sun will still rise, but at least we didn’t lose our ability to catch it on solar panels. (Florida Amendment 1 crashed and burned, good riddance.) The tolls will keep rising, well, exponentially faster.
Speaking of which, Miami-Dade voters re-elected Carlos Gimenez. Uhh, enjoy that, guys.
Medical marijuana was approved in Florida. We’re going to need it. Actually, at this point, we need to go ahead and approve recreational because we REALLY need that. If we grow it domestically that will probably be our one remaining reliable industry. 😉
At this point I think it’s not worth worrying over who gets the presidency as much as how we’re going to deal with the Republican House and Senate. The GOP has historically been associated more with rule by the corporation, not by the people. They were opposed to, and responsible for watering down, the Affordable Healthcare Act.
I made the mistake of turning on a ham radio earlier today and … regretted this within minutes. I decided to suffer through the pain and listen anyway. The usual concerns came up – “they’re gonna take away our guns!”, “lazy people on welfare are destroying everything”… I get the feeling these voices will change very soon upon a harsh reality check as the world’s economies start to… “adjust” more heavily and the BEAUTIFUL new plans for privatized infrastructure optimized to serve the rich start to kick in.
To summarize my predictions:
If Hillary wins:
If either win:
If Trump wins:
This session of angry posting shall terminate now as the boss is behind the rack next to me.
I’m sitting there after a detour through da hood to avoid I-95, 441, and US1 being at a complete standstill thinking, yeah, this isn’t so bad—-
Is that a wobbling zombie with needle tracks holding a compound bow and aiming arrows at oncoming traffic?! Fuck shit no.
Apologies to whoever’s lawn I tore up taking evasive measures.
A refurb DirecTV Slimline receiver we had in service a while just up and died with no warning. It was opened up and showed no signs of trauma but I saw something everyone else missed….
Hmm. Let’s flip it and see what that is at the edge. It’s probably nothing at aaaaaaaaaaaaaa
A while back I found these units tended to burn the access card. This appears to be the fix – first, note how far heat would have to travel down those fingers to toast the card. Second, the card is actually heatsinked by a plate above the socket.
Front panel with mystery antenna. Also note the dual die IR LED next to the black lens IR receiver. This is probably used for the unit’s very user – friendly universal remote system.
The rectangles are touch button sensors.
RF filter and very big silkscreen note on where to find power.
The external converter.
Excuse me, I’m going to go wash my hands.
Ordered a replacement screen and frame for my broken Galaxy S4.
What came just… failed
Original frame at right, motherboard next to it. Note the puzzle piece shape that accommodates those SMT parts.
Old at right, new at left. Note no indent for those smt parts.
Foiled by Chinashit. Can’t blame me for trying can you?
I’m beginning to wonder if this city even exists or if this has all been a prolonged mass hallucination caused by ergot growing in the croquettas or something… Kinda like how the ergot growing in the bread in Salem led to the witch trials
There’s just no way any of this is real
Well if it’s hallucination it’s a really good one because dude I can smell the hot vinyl and feel the warmth from that bad crimp splice there that likely breaks about 23 parts of the National Electric Code
Yeah uh the machine smelled like death and was drooling and the guy insisted there was no problem. Miami Quality
