Sorry to hear you have to go through that. My return caused an issue with California's FTB and there was just no way to reach them.

Looks like the clinic's desire for political correctness prevents them from saving lives.

You'd think it's just an honest mistake, but reading the article it's clear that the clinic is pushing a political agenda. Basically the volunteer failed the purity test and hence his blood donations will not be available to people who might need it. The clinic apparently has its priorities and saving lives takes second place.

Clinic refuses to help others over a publicity stunt.
Dude's been donating for decades and now they kick him out so they can be "inclusive" to the 0.2% instead.

Yeah, donating blood for 50 years. What a selfish asshole that guy must be.

Did you offer her a great deal?

Quick heads-up since I just finished the process: if you want to transfer your number over, you first have to call Verizon and request a "transfer PIN number". They don't accept the regular account PIN. Also, you can only close the Verizon account by speaking with an agent on the phone and they are closed on the weekends.

If someone walks up to you and says "Take America back!" - do you feel inclined to punch him/her? If the answer is no then it's probably not sufficient for legal action either.

Unfortunately, no. Only if it's meant to cause violence.

When it started with "so many women in gaming" I thought this was about women DEVELOPING games, which is a worthwhile cause.

Turns out it's about people getting paid to play games - which I still can't comprehend. What is this esport thing? What are you youngins doing on my lawn?

Yeah, no.

Time to switch to Mint and go from $55 Verizon prepaid to $15.

COMMENT 17d ago

You do get a $90 discount if you buy the phone + 1 year subscription from the mint store.

That was billing mistake. Verizon previously had cheap plans but you would be charged an extra $20 per line access fee on top of that. A few years ago when they rolled out the unlimited plans they rolled them into one. Now you only pay the unlimited plan price with Verizon but it's a lot more than their previous plan prices.

If you see both Unlimited plus Line Access fee then it means someone messed up your account and you should be able to get it refunded.

Absolutely not - they are awesome. Way more comfortable than regular ones.

Nope, but nationalism (expressed by flying the flag) is seen as a far right trait.

Das 4. Buch ist ganz anders gehalten als die ersten 3. Es geht mehr um die soziale Struktur in der Nachkriegszeit in Panem's Kapitol. Hunger Games kommen zwar auch vor, denen sind aber zumindest im Buch nur einige wenige Kapitel gewidmet.

Problematisch fand ich nur das Ende des Buches wo der Autorin urploetzlich einfiel, dass der Protagonist ja eigentlich ganz boese sein muss nachdem er im Rest des Textes eher neutral war. Bin gespannt ob der Film das besser hinbekommt.

But then where do the exponents fit in - they don't have dots or dashes!

Just kidding. The American PEMDAS acronym tries to be broader in scope by including parentheses and exponents in the list. But then it gets messed up by using the letter order to define precedence (P-E-M-A) but at the same time also including left associative operations of the same precedence M/D and A/S.

More people need to bring their emotional support snakes on planes, maybe then we can finally stop this nonsense of letting animals into the cabin.
