@aircraft-engineer I don’t think we’re quite talking the same language. Let me try this again…When a scammer calls you these days it’s virtually guaranteed that the number that appears on your phone is fake.Blocking the number that the scammer appears to come from will have no impact on future scammer calls.On my iPhone I never block phone numbers unless they are junk texting me. Sometimes those get repeated, but never for voice calls. And it sounds like you use Do Not Disturb mode to block unknown callers, which is great until you have a vendor/contractor trying to reach you…Personally I don’t mind getting junk calls, since it brightens my day to mess with scammers. The longer I keep them on the phone, the less time they can spend with other more gullible folks.
@AIRCRAFT-ENGINEER – Since most scammers use spoofed numbers, blocking individual numbers is worse than useless. I say worse, since a spammer might spoof a real number that has a reason to call you (other than fraud.)
They’re from France? Beldar, is that you?
Canadian drivers drive on the same side of the road as the US. Haven’t been to Mexico so can neither confirm nor deny they drive on the same side of the road.
Am I the only one bothered by the car being on the wrong side of the road? Or am I being too North American?
If I’m forced to stop to avoid running them over I’ll do a little golf clap (ever see the movie Men At Work? ;)Otherwise I just make sure I don’t hit them. Same thing for jaywalkers. I refuse to stop for them if there is a crosswalk within 300 feet unless my failure to stop would actually hit them.Well, a mother with a stroller gets sympathy from me, but almost nobody else…especially if they are crossing the street with a fresh cup of coffee.
While it’s great that you’re willing to play Russian Roulette and put yourself in the running for a Darwin Award, I shouldn’t have to have to hope there are witnesses or a working dash cam to avoid vehicular manslaughter because you’re riding like a maniac.
Yep, I’ve narrowly avoided creating roadkill when bicyclists zip across a road in a crosswalk from behind a large truck. Fortunately the speed limit in that spot was 20 mph and I was doing 20, otherwise I just hope my dash cam is working so I don’t get charged with vehicular manslaughter for their attempt to get a Darwin award.
A penguin in a blender? #willitblend
I believe he’s based on Ted Kennedy from MA who passed away back in 2009. This character has been in Shoe for a LONG time. Ah, checking the wikipedia page it could also be Tip O’Neil, another MA Democrat, he passed away back in 1987…
