LOL it gets better:
> There are only 25 unique markers in this 150 piece set. 75 markers total, with a giant hole in the middle covered by the sticker to trick you into thinking there are more. And of the 75 markers, you get 3 of each color. So basically 25 markers. The box it comes in counts as one of the 150 "pieces". Completely deceptive marketing.
These assholes should be sued out of business for false advertising.
It was a VPN service, not sure why it's called "One Month with Trial" here.
EDIT: So turns out Hotspot Shield, the company where I got the VPN’s trial from are the ones who named their product “One month with trial” in the Microsoft store. Whether this is intentional or not, I can’t be sure, but based on a lot of comments saying Hotspot Shield is known to do shit like this, I assume it was on purpose.
For those of you calling me a dumbass for choosing Hotspot Shield, I literally just needed a VPN for a one-time purpose and didn’t want to pay for it. I made enough research to make sure they wouldn’t steal my credit card, and it worked for my purpose
Also, I realize that the flair “NOT MICROSOFT” is making a lot of people think this is a phishing email. This email is legit from Microsoft, the product itself isn’t from Microsoft, but comes from the Microsoft store
There is a non OEM solution - https://www.amazon.com/Bosch-1375A-2-Inch-Angle-Grinder/dp/B00004SUOU/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?keywords=angle+grinder&qid=1574014778&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&sr=8-3 - "it just works."
Theres these blinds that have a reflective side so your room won't even heat up as much as it would with black courtains.
EDIT: I wasn't on reddit for a bit so I didn't even know my comment gained so much attention, sorry. Heres a link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0798LHHHK
Basically just search for thermal blinds, you will most likely find something. Unlike black courtains, these blinds won't absorb as much sunlight so they won't heat up as much. They can also make a room much darker and because of their mounting position you can still mount normal courtains to make it look less clean/sterile.
even better, use this person does not exist.
It's a randomly generated face of a person who doesn't exist. I know what you're thinking and yes; THESE PEOPLE DO NOT EXIST, they are AI generated.
Man what a crazy world we live in.
See info at bottom
The photo omits the quantity in the XL bottle so tuff to say if you're actually getting less. The bottle could be thicker, the cap could take up less space. Without the quantity being shown it's impossible to know.
We all see the tricks manufacturers pull with bottles that look bigger than they are. I'm not saying this isn't another manufacturer trick (using a vs XL label) but we don't know.
Reddit loves outrage so if the XL bottle actually held less I would imagine the photo would include that info with a big red circle around it.
So I dug a little to try and find the quantity and the XL bottle does hold less. It is also curiously missing from obvious legit Dove retailers and according to reviews where I could find this product is a watered down knock off where the reseller stuck on the cheap XL sticker, not the manufacturer. The regular legit bottle was probably bought from a store while the XL from Amazon or eBay.

Read the reviews.
iirc if you click "restore purchases" it disables the ad if you previously paid
Edit: turns out I wasn't remembering correctly but if you previously downloaded the game you can still get the paid version from https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sega.sonic2
edit 2: idk what the "it doesn't work" people are talking about, just tried it and it DOES work (brings up the google play link for the old version), maybe they're just dumb
Yep. In most cases you can just install Nine Email Client (I think they have an iOS version as well). I didn't like the idea of some admin being able to wipe personal phone in return for me using mobile email.
I actually was curious so I installed and played it for a couple of minutes.
It is a top down run/race coin collect game, similar to Temple Run, ~~Mario Run~~ or Sonic Dash, except the concept makes no sense, it is like a skinned racing game, with an Assassin looking guy running on a racetrack inside a Medieval village, and the slow obstacles are passive Ogres (in car versions of these type of games these would be busses or trucks) The screenshots on the App page is nothing of the gameplay.
It connects to Google Play and wants to know the personal info from my gmail account. Luckily the gmail account I have has nothing of the sort.
Invest in a safety razor and some blades and you will be set. Those 200 blades should last you for a decade unless you shave daily.
Im not kidding. Safety razor blades are mere pennies and the razor should last longer than you.
I don't have a Samsung so I don't know if this still works, but my mother was using an app to rebind the bixby button to other actions, you should try it out �� https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jamworks.bxactions
That must be a joke. Websites don't have access to your browser history.
Or it could be a supercookie and this nag screen should disappear when you clear your cookies.
I have pi-hole on my home network and I used to play a voodoo game. Every time I start the app or progress to the next level I could see a flurry of blocked requests flood the log.
I made sure the VPN was ~~reputable~~ legit! It's called Hotspot Shield, and it took me to the Microsoft store to download it (I always make sure links are authentic before I put any personal info in them). This email I received is also from Microsoft's domain, and the link to cancel my subscription worked fine
Edit: I called the VPN service reputable here, but I really just meant to say that I made enough research to make sure my card wasn’t getting stolen. I needed a VPN for a one-time purpose and just wanted something that worked, and to be fair it did. Now I never need to look at it again
I bought this 3 years ago and love it.

As a lawyer who works in this area (and a law prof who teach law students how to write these things), I can assure you that they are enforceable. See, for example, recent cases involving Uber and Facebook in the District Courts of New York upholding both EULAs. To be enforceable, however, they need to follow standard rules for contracts - Offer, Acceptance, Consideration. You need not have actually read the contract for it to be enforceable against you, but you do need to have the OPPORTUNITY to read the contract for it to be enforceable, and there needs to be an affirmative manifestation of assent (e.g., "Click OK") and not merely a passive action (or non-action) that is unclear whether you read it or not (e.g., "By visiting this website...").
FYI, because people are interested,I put the slides that I give my law students up on SlideShare if you are interested.
I bought two of these for my goddaughters for Christmas. Of course one goddaughter is older and louder than the other. So to level the playing field I also bought these.
Now it’s a fair and fun environment for everybody in my best friends house!
FYI, Hotspot Shield is owned by AnchorFree. These people have a bad.
Generally don't plug third party services, but online services like this is exactly what I use privacy.com for. Spin up a new card, set 1 time purchase limit of the cost. If I want to renew for a year or two, then double or triple the limit. Once the limit is reached the card declines future transactions, so they can try and renew all they want but it's not gonna do them any good.
You can get that whole chopper on Amazon for about $20. Looks like a SYMA S107.
You might luck out and the remote will operate both.
Going to hijack this because its the top comment - there aren't ambiguous FDA regulations that lead to this. The packaging on genuine Seriously Strawberry Nerds reads:
"Seriously Strawberry Flavor with other natural flavors". Edit: you can see what this looks like on a box of genuine nerds here.
As weird as this sounds this is most likely a box of counterfeit nerds that the OP bought at a dollar store or online.
Yes, counterfeit candy is a thing. Yes, if you buy candy at a dollar store or from an online re-seller there is a very good chance its a counterfeit.
I wouldn't use any of the VPNs that spam ads and sponsors everywhere.
Mullvad is a simple flat monthly rate, you don't have to subscribe if you want, zero information required, your account is just a randomly generated string of numbers.
They have servers everywhere, the latency is low enough for gaming, the bandwidth is enough for downloads.
I just don't see why you would use any other VPN except for things like Netflix, or things like IVPN's tracker blacklist
The test is difficult, this is just the first page. All three pages can be found here.
Many of the questions are phrased so that there is potential for many different 'correct' answers and depending on who's taking the test the assessor can decide if their correct answer is the correct answer. Also one wrong answer is a fail.
I just use a power squid for things like this. I like vintage gaming and I have nes, snes, genesis, sega cd, and 32x plugs all on one and those old plugs are huge.
Because buying bulk peppercorn is less exepnsive than buying those cheap grinders.
2.5oz for 4.20 ($1.68 / Ounce)
17.5oz for 14 dollars($0.80 / Ounce)
If you cook a lot and are going through it at a decent rate, its worth it to have a refillable one.
You should change to uBlock origin if you actually want to block ads, as Adblock Plus has a program where advertisers can pay them to have their ads be let through and could be considered assholedesign itself.
Also, there's a chaotic good 5 star review here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.luiviton.meatgrind&reviewId=gp%3AAOqpTOG2HxgVeHd6afN-mFIcVUrtLkUvmjCViDMWbU951tkpKf39mN3sFnZQxZDOUkkgBp_JpgJT7WGKGgigwPI
for each chair you buy the freight for each is USD 438.88 / number of chairs.
So if you buy 100, each one will cost 7.50 + 4.39 = 11.89 dollars.
This similar model on amazon costs 85.
Of course, this is not 100% fair. As you would also have to pay for the transportation from the container to your place, and then the time necessary trying to sell them. But it seems you can make some profit out of it, if that's your thing.
I can also recommend that you check out the app FaceSlim which is basically a really nice wrapper of the facebook website before it was shit. Have replaced both the facebook app and messenger for me.
P.S. It is open source and free of spyware as well.
Dungeon X Dungeon. Not the OP, but I played it myself a few months back. I would have put up with the ads (and there are lots of other ads), but it had a lot of other issues. In particular it had bad controls combined with very unforgiving jumps and enemies that just made it a chore to play. That is a real deal-killer for a platformer like that.
Yeah the reviews on Amazon have pics that show it fully printed all over. It’s either a misprint or OP took a pic of the tablecloth upside-down.
I think it was Mullvad, and I wouldn't be surprised if it were. That and Proton are by far my top recommendations for a VPN.
I was curious enough to do some research and found an 8b bag of Ore Ida tater tots for $7.26 and a 200 count package of the 3.5" trays for $10.98. That's 5.6 cents an oz for tots and 5.5 cents per tray. One oz of tater tots is about 3 tots. I'm guessing you could get the same amount of volume from about 6 tots, so they're saving about 5 cents a tray. Of course, that assumes commercial prices are the same as normal ones, but I assume the cost savings wouldn't be too far off when you buy bulk.
NordVPN changed their login system from being in the app to being on the web -- the app opens up a website where I type my credentials, which is supposed to bounce back to the app, but that last part doesn't work. I can no longer log in.
It's dumb and lots of other people have the same issue and yet it's still like this.
Don't get NordVPN.
It's local network level DNS passthrough software that is built to block ads at the source, for any device on your network. It has a handy interface that allows you to find, pick and block ad servers like the one on the TV, without needing to futz with your router or hosts files.
You can run it as software on a computer but it was engineered for the Raspberry Pi, a super cheap single board computer.
I've used O&O Shutup10 for more than a year now and I'm surprised I never saw it get mentioned in threads like this one. It's a great software that let's you block every annoying aspect of windows 10, forced updates, adds in Explorer and the start menu and a lot of data-collection to Microsoft. I really can't recommend this enough!
Seriously tho I would return this crap. False advertising and they probably don’t last as long as crayola brand. Yes might spend an extra $ on it but I’ll get my money’s worth!
On iPhone you can still do it through safari, it might just take a few tries. Here: http://osxdaily.com/2018/08/08/play-youtube-videos-background-iphone/
There’s probably a way for Samsung but I don’t know it, although you can probably look it up
This is why I use sites like SimpleLogin and Privacy.com so that is it is physically impossible to give me the run around and I can just delete the email address and credit card I gave them as soon as they try so that they don't have any information anymore (I also never give out any personal information unless it is necessary for the service I want, otherwise I just enter fake information or take my business elsewhere. Also use a PO box instead of home address, since I can change my PO easier than my address).
I think Google needs a cap on how much they can charge for weekly like $5/week. Some minecraft mods app does this but for $50/week and have huge micro transactions on top of that (can all be avoided ironically). Or flat out remove it altogether since I never see any big company use this method. The app in question
Simply right click and in the context menu you will see an option to Block element. Here's a random tutorial on it I found if you want to dig deeper, https://www.freecodecamp.org/news/how-to-block-content-from-web-pages-using-ublock-origin/amp/
Yup! Found it. I think it's the fried jalapeno strips from Costco. All the nutrition facts seem to match here but the size is different: https://www.amazon.com/Fresh-Gourmet-Crispy-Jalapenos-Lightly/dp/B006CFVXSU
I don't think Hotspot Shield was trying to be deceptive.
They named the subscription "One Month with Trial" to show that you are subscribing to 1 month of service, and receiving a trial. The issue comes that MS's automated email is expecting the Subscription name to be something like "Hotspot Shield Pro", so as a result the email becomes this confusing mess.
I’m curious if anyone who owns his mouse is upvoting. It’s probably the best design they could do. You only have to charge it maybe once every 6 months and doesn’t take long. They wanted to get rid of AA batteries but still keep the sleek glass on the top.
Edit: Not only Apple does this. Even Logitech’s copy of it T631 also has the usb charging port on the bottom hmm ...
Get a laser printer. You will love it. I got a this dell about a year ago. It's a rebranded xerox product according to what I've read. It's seriously the best printer ownership experience ever. No more stupid ink cartridges. If you don't print a lot you don't have to worry about the ink drying in the heads. The toner lasts a long time and the image quality is so much better than any inkjet I've ever owned.
You are wrong.
Adblock Plus (not AdBlock) started the Acceptable Ads program, AdBlock has implemented the same whitelist.
The AA program whitelists ads that aren't annoying. The criteria is here. The shit about selling out is retards not knowing how to read and just seeing the word money. Small websites with acceptable ads get whitelisted for free. Huge sites and ad agencies like Google also have to pay a fee, but the criteria is still the same. Disabling it altogether is just one click.
Neither extension harvests personal data, only basic anonymous telemetry, and both are open source.
All that said, uBO is still better on resources, but I'm sick of this misinformation spreading.
This isn't quite the same, but I use an app called Bouncer which removes specific permissions after you close the app. Preventing the app from being able to even access said permission because you removed it.
Google can get these ratings to display from metadata on the page, for instance "structured data": https://moz.com/learn/seo/schema-structured-data
This is how google and other search engines can show the data. Of course, it's put on there by the site owner themselves, so it can be faked. I'm sure Google has some way to punish sites that do this by demoting their ranking.
Oh my gosh Dylan please don’t go. Vector is a pyramid scheme. They’re one of the groups that have ended up paying and advertising a lot of places to say that they’re not a pyramid scheme, but they are point for point and MLM. https://www.slideshare.net/mobile/lambertbnhfalglgd/7-secrets-vector-marketing-scam-didnt-tell-you
There’s a bit of stuff about it, but if you want to look into first hand accounts then https://www.reddit.com/r/OutOfTheLoop/comments/46tjv3/what_is_vector_marketing_and_why_does_everybody/ is also a good thing to read.
If you're on pc, get ublock origin (free chrome extension) to watch without ads. If you're on mobile, get youtube Vanced. You have to get it from this site at opposed to the play store (it's safe, I promise), but it's ad-free and enables background playing or playing audio with the screen off.
LOL, it's the same crap as those NordVPN banners warning me about my privacy and showing my IP to scare me, also telling me that they know I'm in Germany... which I'm not because I already have NordVPN and "my" IP is one of their own servers. 😁
Edit: no, it wasn't a drone at all. It was about 12-16 inches long and was a typical helicopter design. Along these lines.
the store/market icon is not always the exact same as the actual app icon.
for instance, see https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.squareenixmontreal.hitmansniperandroid - the actual app icon doesn't have the discount overlay :P
There are no Vanced releases on their Github, just source, except for the manager app. And finding the download on GitHub can be a bit cumbersome for people that aren't tech-savvy, especially on mobile.
Best to direct them to the official site vancedapp.com
After lots of people on Reddit told me to use "Reddit is fun" app instead. I am now part of the people telling others to use the "Reddit is fun" app instead.
edit: added a link because typing 3 words into Google is hard.
You don't. Most if not all of the SD cards advertised as 1-2TB are fake, being small capacity cards that had their firmware hacked to show a spoofed high capacity.
Basic rule of thumb is, if you've never heard of the brand making the card, don't buy it. Stick to Kingston, PNY, Samsung, MiniMicro, SanDisk and other well-known, reputable brands.
Here is a highly reviewed 512GB micro SD from Samsung. $90, 4.5/5 stars in reviews.
400GB micro SD from SanDisk, $52, 4.5/5 stars.
That's more than I'd ever need on a phone. My hard storage on my desktop is 2TB, and I hardly fill that up even with lots of films.
I use this youtube userscript and Video Deck to make youtube better. Custom columns with subs filtered by comedy/politics/etc on a dark background is much more intuitive to me. The userscript disables all the youtube bollocks and adds a lot of good features.
Another comment mentioned the Iridium userscript which I'll look into too. Anything to make youtube better / suck less!
there's nothing illegal about blocking ads or downloading videos.
distributing the videos you have downloaded afterwards may run afoul of various copyright laws depending on the videos themselves and where you are, but downloading a video to your computer for offline viewing is perfectly legal.
also, regarding ads, companies are not entitled to do whatever they want with your computer simply because you visited their website. you have control over what happens on your network.
one-click youtube downloading: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/youtube_downloader_webx (i'm sure there's a chrome equivalent)
easy, fast adblocking: https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock (scroll down to "installation")
I’ll try and offer you a solution since you can’t uninstall the app and obviously going to the settings to disable every permissions after you are done with the app is dumb. My suggestion is the app called Bouncer, like the name suggest you can grant the app the required permission and disable it when you leave the app.
I know this fuckin game, they put out an update that wiped all my progress and didn't offer anything to restore it. I'm glad I didn't make any purchases.
Just play the original cookie clicker if you wanna click cookies. Orteil will never force ads in your face. http://orteil.dashnet.org/cookieclicker/
It even still receives updates!
Here’s the windirstat download /u/testicular_prolapse (great name) if you don’t know what the above comment is talking about. You can download it and run it on your drive to get a graphical representation of files on your machine, like this. Super useful if you’re running out of space on your drive and don’t know where it is. The bigger the box, the bigger the file, and if you click on boxes it’ll tell you where/what the file is. Feel free to DM me if you need any help running it - it’s a very useful program
Edit: also agreed with the above comment that you should definitely not be completely out of space when removing everything but bare essentials. Even a basic laptop with a 128GB SSD should have good wiggle room. I one time found a 250GB corrupt video file when using windirstat, so it’s not unheard of
It's not really chips. I think it's the fried jalapeno strips from Costco. All the nutrition facts seem to match here except it's a smaller bag on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Fresh-Gourmet-Crispy-Jalapenos-Lightly/dp/B006CFVXSU
It's normally sprinkled on in moderation to spice up a meal!
Also for anyone in the future not wanting to put their cc info in unknown places https://privacy.com is a great website. Let’s you create virtual cards with different numbers that you can deactivate easily and set limits for subscriptions
There are extensions to help too.
Adnauseum works ontop of ublock, clicking literally every single blocked ad to throw off trackers.
Mozilla's Track This website will literally open 100 tabs in your browser based on generic 'profiles' like an 'Influencer' or a 'Doomsday Prepper', similarly to throw off ad trackers.
I think it's hilarious.
They have an annual option for the ad-free plan for $100 a year (or for the ad-supported plan for $50 a year). You can buy the entire series on iTunes for $70 or on Blu-ray for $120 and not have to deal with any of this streaming licensing bullshit.
It took me a while to land on a VPN I actually like for precisely this reason. I'm convinced that companies like PIA, NordVPN, and ExpressVPN run astroturf campaigns on places like Reddit so it's even harder to know if you're getting an unbiased recommendation.
I tried Mullvad a bit ago. I don't totally remember why I switched to something else, but I remember it being pretty good. I've been using ProtonVPN for a while now and I really like it. Their email service is pretty cool, too.
You must have been looking at gold leaf receipt paper. Shit is cheap as fuck.
First google result shows a 50pack of 250’ long rolls for $70. So I am certain you can get it for less if you look around.
No, they have a monopoly on it. If a cartridge is out of a color ink, even if the user only wants to print in black and white text, the printer will refuse to let you print using only black ink. Printers are sold at a loss so they can sell the ink cartridges at a high cost. Rather than sell smaller cartridges that use all the ink, they sell cartridges with chips that report how much ink is in a cartridge that are designed to prevent some of the ink from being used to force the end-user to buy more. That's how they make their money.
Edit: Extra content from a response I made below regarding this not being a monopoly... This is EXACTLY what a monopoly is. These companies sell specialized ink cartridges that do not work in other printers. Their printers and cartridges have hardware and software to stop the end-users from attempting to use third party cartridges and from manually refilling or replacing them. In what way is this not a monopoly? Or at least an attempt to maintain one? Few people I know that aren't in the tech savvy realm don't even know that it's possible to get some brands of ink from a manufacturer. And, I got news for you, lots of those remanufactured cartons are refilled by the manufacturer. As stated in this article, many if not most cartridges are copyrighted to prevent reproduction.
For sure. I run two sets of social accounts (one personal, one for the gaming stuff), so I used to have FF and Chrome just to keep the accounts at the ready but separate. Then I discovered Waterfox. Buh-bye Chrome.
Before android M, yes, but nowadays you have to ask for these permissions at runtime.
This app is a datahoarder, just selling your data like crazy. I'd recommend anyone to report the app to Google, this shit's got to stop.
Edit: It is assholedesign, just trying to help ya out
try audacity, it's a general purpose audio file editor that's completely free (both free as in speech and free as in beer), and can do a lot of stuff besides converting audio files from one format to another.
If you're looking for the good old card games, you can still install the Windows 7 pre-installed games on Windows 10. I forgot what the thing is called, but it downloads the exact copies of the games from Windows 7, it's literally the exact same. If it aint broke don't fix it.
Edit: Found it, was really that lazy that i'd rather post it and then go look for it.
True but assuming my experience is a good estimate, most sites I've visited in the EU did this 'opt-out' setup. I've mostly stopped checking the settings and hope that Ad Nauseam is feeding them shit data.
NordVPN don't have a list of all their competitor's IPs. The page simply show your IP with the generic "You're exposed" if it doesn't recognize one of his own IP.
Also, it would make no business sense to say "You are using a competitor. You're still safe!".
McAfee only acquired the rights to the VPN service so that they could integrate it into their product line as something called "Safe Connect." - TunnelBear continues to operate as it did, unmolested since the acquisition. TunnelBear also continues to operate the same VPN service under its own brand, and the profits from it are split among the two.
For all the shit McAfee gets, when they buy tech, they do it right... Unlike google who just takes it out back and shoots it to death after a year or two. McAfee just gets shit on here all the time because it's target audience is people who don't even know what a forum is.
Just going off prices here in Australia. The Logitech's are $129 for the set while those Edifiers are also exactly $129AUD for the set so I think it's a fair comparison.
The Edifers will get down to 75hz while that big clunkly logitech sub will only get a bit further down to 55hz. It also doesn't say where it starts rolling off, pretty sure the Edifiers are -3db at 75hz while the logitechs could be -6db or -10db and still claim it as part of their FR, and given how up front they are about the fake tweeter i'm almost certain that it's not flat down to 55. I also guarantee you that the bass from that sub will sound like ass, it will be super muddy and boomy because the sub will be filling in for a large section of low end for those satellites. The sub only has an RMS of 24 watts or something so it's going to be distorting like crazy at any loud listening levels.
Your choice is then some nicely designed wooden Edifiers with wireless remote, an additional aux input and a silk dome tweeter that will actually sound good, or an ugly set of black plastic Logitech's with a corded volume knob and big space sucking sub that might make your desk vibrate a bit but will sound awful. For an extra $20 you can get the Edifiers with bluetooth as well.
Freezing the browser tab, increasing the CPU temperature, increasing the speed (and loudness) of the CPU fan, wasting precious energy from the device battery…
What's next? Multi-threaded infinite loops to completely overload all CPU cores? Intentional memory leaks to increase the RAM usage and force the OS to use swap and thus trashing the system? And why the hell am I giving ~~bad~~ ~~shitty~~ asshole ideas out loud like this?!
As a user, you can use uBlock Origin to block all scripts (even inline ones) from the website. You can also just not visit that website.
I've been using this for years and I would never buy another multi blade razor again.
Try something like this https://www.amazon.com/Brother-HL-L2300D-Monochrome-Printer-Printing/dp/B00NQ1CLTI, and I've seen them on sale as low as $80
Sorry, but I'll be the one playing devil's advocate here. Got to the Amazon listing.
While the 100 pieces part is a little sketch (the crayons seem only to add up to 88), the picture you posted make it seem like they're trying to make the buyer think the tub is full of goods, but they clearly aren't. The crayons placement reminds of a lot of assholedesign packagings, but the tub is partly opaque, with big stickers on the outside who would cover the alleged attempt at scamming people anyway. It's also listed as "STORAGE TUB: Keep your crafting materials organized in the included craft storage container—there is even room for your extra art supplies!". As others have said, all the included parts are even pictured on the outside, and even if sold in a physical store nobody would ever think that thing is full of crayons after lifting it up.
I think it could be a solution for shipping: leaving the crayons free of tumbling around could result in some chipping and a big colored mess after delivery. With the cardboard and lid closed, there's no chance these things are moving around that much, and it's cheaper and easier than designing another method of fixing those things inside the tub.
> widely regarded as the best out there.
I wouldn't go as far as to say that. Best marketing perhaps. They've been doing a lot to fight for net neutrality, which is great, but there are other VPN services out there, many are as good or better than PIA in terms of price, speed, and privacy.
I actually use PIA myself, but their exit nodes are banned on a lot of sites, and the speeds on some are <20mbit which is unacceptable to me. I hear good things about NordVPN and IPreadator and a few others as well.
There have also been good ol' tactics with (nearly) unvisible buttons, virus threats to make me feel unsafe etc. Reminds me of a TunnelBear uninstallation screen I saw here some time ago.
Also the only other time I saw a captcha screen while in an unistaller was at this sub by a adware program.
Even better, buy cyanoacrylate in a tub and have a ton of it for cheap.
My son installed a "how will you look when you get older?" app with a 3 day free trial. After the 3 days I was charged $79 for a "yearly subscription", which of course he didn´t realize when he installed it. I tried to get my money back but Google refused. I know I shouldn't have let him install apps on his own, or have my credit card info on his device (I learned an expensive lesson), but this was clearly asshole design as the app had thousands of negative reviews all saying the same thing. I think Apple handles these things better, Google just lets them sit in the Play store and refuses to return the money.
Edit: this is the app in question, it's still there. WARNING: DO NOT INSTALL THIS APP. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=future.me.old.baby.astrology
You do not need to pay that much for a quality knife. Victorinox are good and affordable I have one that is about 8 years old and it has held up great. My SO is a professional chef and even she will use it over her super nice, expensive Wusthof chef knives.
I have the real RCA version of this remote, which is designed exactly the same as your knock off. I own this one and it works fine universally:
Eh, just enable it anyway. YouTube takes a large cut of the ad revenue anyways, leaving content creators with the scraps. They also demonetize videos if they even marginally step out of line because YouTube is only interested in keepong their ad providers happy now. It's the reason content creators look for third-party sponsors like SkillShare or ExpressVPN because it gives them far more ad revenue and allows them to talk about them themselves in a fun and creative way, rather than the annoying ads that interrupts your viewing experience.
A bayonet attachment would be on the pommel and crossguard, not on the handle (like on this, where there's a loop on the crossguard and a clip on the pommel). Having it on the handle makes it useless as a knife because you can't wrap your hand around it in any firm way.

I would never let YouTube just idly run for 10 hours, ads or not.
Just download the thing (youtube-dl) if you need it and then it's under your control and you won't even need the internet to watch it.
these are the most popular options on Android devices in that order
don't know if there are options on iOS
Yahoo! is forcing the password change because they've had two (!) major password breaches. If it's feasible I think your dad should switch away from Yahoo! as an email service.
Edit: Have him put his email address into this: https://haveibeenpwned.com/
No, it's not. Math-major algebra was typically taught from something like Herstein. These days, Dummit and Foote seems more popular.
I think it's the crispy fried jalapenos here: https://www.amazon.com/Fresh-Gourmet-Crispy-Jalapenos-Lightly/dp/B006CFVXSU All the nutrition facts seem to match except this is a smaller bag.
It says it is made by NoAdBlock. I don't know, but they might be associated with Cloudflare. But if it's not Cloudflare, then maybe we could report it for bad behavior, etc?
EDIT: Cloudflare has an abuse form that allows reporting malware. I'm pretty sure that from the user's perspective, this qualifies as malware since it's intentionally causing breakage.
