Thread of legal hubbub

Anyone have experience in small claims court? Trying to decide if it’s with the time and effort (and about $100 filing fee) to get $1300 in rent I’m owed.

Colossal TV Show thread

I think I made it 4 or 5 eps. I liked the characters and should have loved the show as it's right in my wheelhouse, but I just never got invested in it.

home theater, cord cutting, video streaming, a/v tech, and more!

I just received an email from Roku about my new subscription to fubo Family Share at $64.99 a month. The only problem is I never signed up for that. I thought it was a phising scam until I went to the site and checked my account (I get HBO max through roku) and yep, I was subscribed. Needless to say...

FWIW, if you have to replace the flooring, I'd ditch the carpet and laminate and put in luxury vinyl planks. It might be more expensive at the start, but it's much more durable/harder to ruin through carelessness.

COVID-19

I made a lap through town tonight and every restaurant was at pre-Covid levels judging by vehicles in the parking lots. I guess the pandemic is over because every place I passed (Eat n Park, Ruby Tuesday, Hoss's, a few local joints) was packed.

Assuming the former, it's Mario, Crosby, Jagr for me, in that order. Three top 20 players in the history of the game... I...

I'm finally making progress on my media room and I'm looking into seating options. As much as I'd enjoy real home theater seating, the price just doesn't make sense. Since this furniture will only be used 3 or 4 nights a week for 90 min to 2 hours a night, I want to keep costs down. I'm looking for ...

I would love to see that graph overlaid with vehicular accidents. People can barely drive cars, let alone SUVs and trucks, the latter of which some seem to think they can drive at any speed in weather.
You mean Joe Somerset shouldn't be driving 70 mph on icy roads in his pick up? Lies.

You know what really grinds my gears...

I could understand somebody who needs to get out of their house early shoveling at early, but somebody who is retired? **** that ****. That's dadhole level stuff right there. I won't even start my lawnmower before 9am. Yeah, he's retired and since covid, I bet he doesn't leave his property more tha...

Maybe no delivery company wants to go to Somerset more than once per week...
And who could blame them?

In a new annoyance, my retired neighbor who goes nowhere decided to scrape his walkway with a plastic shovel at 6am. That wouldn't be bad aside from the fact that I go to bed at 2.

There are several products made to quickly and securely "lock" doors in classrooms. I know every school is constructed differently, but I think solutions like those should be the first step, far above telling kids to fight back.

Could also have to do with where the items are physically located. If they are sitting in a nearby warehouse they are going to arrive faster than if they are across the country.
It's literally everything though. Needle nose pliers, blu rays, bird seed, dog treats, batteries. So odd.

That could be the big ice storm slowing down shipping times (proactively). Plus the normal USPS lethargy. It still doesn't make sense. Everything I looked at this morning/early afternoon said delivery Wednesday. After 6pm, everything is delivery Saturday. And, as I mentioned, Saturday afternoon, ev...

This isn't even for items that have shipped. For me, literally every single thing on Amazon is currently showing it won't be delivered until Saturday.
