    Ring’s latest security camera is a drone that flies around inside your house

    It seems like an awfully expensive way for me to torment my cats. Probably still worth it.

    Wisconsin lol

    Perhaps it's not a long sleeve jersey, but rather the guy just has really short, stubby arms?

    POLL: Should Trick or Treating Be Banned or Severely Restricted This Year?

    Ban it because I hate driving real slow watching for dumbass kids darting out into the road! Instead, lets turn Halloween into an adult holiday where the parents go door to door and homeowners are passing out shots/beers/snacks.

    Is your affinity for a pick up truck derailing your retirement plans?

    Man, my first car was older than me and I was lucky to have it. I couldn't imagine the horror on NDallasDaughter's face if we told her she had to drive a car from 2000-2002.

    Is your affinity for a pick up truck derailing your retirement plans?

    “The Denton, Texas, couple pay $4,400 a month on their mortgage, four car loans and leases..." Yeah, these people are friggin idiots! 2 people with 4 car loans??

    Military has 1 death out of 1.3 million active service members due to covid

    Don't you think it's a little hypocritical to assume that the MSM is over-reporting the number of COVID deaths, but not also assume that the military could be under-reporting the number of deaths? After all, the CIC is the head of the military, and his position on COVID reporting is pretty well...

    Or, apparently not. :)

    Voting: Why shouldn't there be a test/minimum requirement?

    Maybe we need to back up and re-define what it takes to be a citizen?!

    Voting: Why shouldn't there be a test/minimum requirement?

    Would taking political parties and candidate affiliations off of ballots accomplish this, to an extent? Voters would at least have to know who the candidates were, and what they support/oppose, or else they're basically just 50/50 guessing?

    Voting: Why shouldn't there be a test/minimum requirement?

    That's a good point! It'd need to be re-administered periodically - in the same way that I think that you should have to re-take the driving test every 2 or 3 years after turning 60.

    Voting: Why shouldn't there be a test/minimum requirement?

    My goal wouldn't be to help them decide who to vote for. Only to identify a population of voters who have the capacity for making sound decisions (whichever direction they go) that will impact all of us - rather than mindless warm bodies that go and check a box because their parents always...

    Voting: Why shouldn't there be a test/minimum requirement?

    There's got to be a basic set of information/facts that could be included in a test though. - How many voting members in the US House of Representatives? - Who's 3rd in line for presidential succession? - Which was the first state to ratify the US constitution? - Who breaks a tie in the...

    Voting: Why shouldn't there be a test/minimum requirement?

    Or maybe it would work out like kind of a "league promotion" system where a candidate starts local and gets more and more name recognition as they move up through larger roles/positions? A City Councilperson is elected to the County Board of Supervisors, then the State House, then Lt Governor...

    Xbox series X or PS5?

    It looks like only PS4 games - including PS1, 2, 3 games that were purchased through PS4. https://www.pushsquare.com/guides/ps5-backwards-compatibility-can-you-play-ps3-ps2-and-ps1-games-on-playstation-5

    Sports card Hobbyists—#thehobby

    Is it values on all cards, or is it just the values on these "special"/one off cards that are really high? I follow a local card dealer on FB and he's posting high prices for these cards that are being sold, but they all seem to be really specialized/unique cards, and not the ones that you're...

    Xbox series X or PS5?

    I've had the PS1 through the PS4. I'll stick with the trend and get the PS5. I may be wrong, but I think the PS5 will allow you to play your older PS games through it - different than the PS4 that had no backwards compatibility.

    Voting: Why shouldn't there be a test/minimum requirement?

    I like that. It would motivate people to learn more and improve themselves if they want to be a "super voter".

    Voting: Why shouldn't there be a test/minimum requirement?

    I'm not sure. Maybe you could change the rules so people (and corporations, because apparently they're people too) can only donate to individual candidates - not to the RNC, DNC, PACs, etc. Make it so the money couldn't got through a third-party aggregator. You want to back a candidate...

    Voting: Why shouldn't there be a test/minimum requirement?

    Alternatively... What if we legally outlawed political parties? People could run for office, but they'd have to rely on their positions on different issues. Their stances on things like immigration, military spending, etc. may identify them as being "liberal" or "conservative", but they...
