What’s a piece of information you know that feels illegal to know?

What’s a piece of information you know that feels illegal to know?


I'm trying to lockpick. I'm terrified how easy was pick my bicycle lock. My first attempt and it took 5 minutes.


Most conventional locks, like door locks from the hardware store or padlocks, are a joke. Hell you can take your house key and go door to door and eventually find aanother door that it'll open. What they're counting on is that most people aren't going to make the effort to acquire or make lock picking tools, then learn how to use them.


Where I work we have buildings with over 900 different locked doors. Each renter has their own special cut key....I have 1 key that opens them all. A master key is not hard to make.


What room did you find the master key? 2F?


2F has the compass.


I found it in the Big Chest


Security guard here. I bought a cheap set of picking tools and was able to open one door that our master key opens, which means I could theoretically pick them all. That key opens hundreds of doors across multiple facilities. Big ol eek.


BF handed me his key ring. I opened his door with the key I always used. He asked "Why are you using my parents' house key?" I said "Because it works." Both houses were from the same builder, a few miles apart.


My father has a story where he borrowed someones car and only after arriving at the destination he realized "isn't his car a different color?". He took the car of a different coworker of the same brand and was able to open it and drive off with a different key! Also; window locks often have the same issue. There was once an issue in my country where it was found out that every lock of a big popular brand (AXA) had the same fucking key... there was possibly hundreds of thousands of those locks in circulation.


My best friend and I live 15 minutes apart. Our house keys are an exact match.


This also works with garage door openers. My mom and I used to play that game as a kid. Drive around hitting it and see whose door opens. At least one per trip


Signs are for the honest and locks are for the lazy.


I recently got into lockpicking. At the same time I felt both extremely proud and absolutely terrified how quickly I was able to open my front door.


it is also pretty easy to kick open a door. granted its harder than picking a lock. its also incredibly easy to open some doors with credit cards.


this is exactly why i'm trying to convince my mom and her fiance to get deadbolt locks. i even whipped out an old amazon card and opened the door in less than 10 seconds and they still think their doors are 100% safe


Locks are security theatre. They just separate the impulsive from those with true malicious, criminal intent.


The lock on your front door is to keep out your friends.


And opportunists


And velociraptors


Clever girl


This is the lockpicking lawyer


Ok folks


We can all easily find out what people paid for their house. Seems kind of personal, but it’s very public. Same with divorce records.


Also, taxes on houses, cars, boats, etc. are public. At least they are in South Carolina.


California as well. I just looked up my neighbor and they’re $15,000 in debt in back property tax. Yikes.


People being able to look up that shit is obnoxious as a semi-new homeowner. Spammers scour that shit, so the first 6 months 90% of your mail is trying to sell you mortgage insurance (the home equivalent of the car "extended waranTEE" scam calls), and a fair number of the telemarketer calls I get are people trying to purchase my house (I haven't listened to any of those long enough to know what the angle is there).


For the "I want to buy your house" people, offer to sell for 250K more than the very top price it could ever sell for. That's what I did, and they stopped calling me. For the rest, get your number on that national do not call list, and then get your mailing address on the "do not solicit" list. Yes, it exists! https://www.directmail.com/mail\_preference/


In a lot of states you can even see the names of the people or business that owns the house, names of sellers and buyers for each sale, copies of the deed, etc. Varies wildly by state though. For example, Arizona has a LOT of public info while California is very restrictive in comparison.


To be clear: real property records are going to be public in every state, very much including California. What changes is what is freely available online, and what you would have to go in person to request.




County clerks office keeps all that stuff on record. Pro-tip: ANY TIME you are looking to rent a room or house, check the county clerk records to make sure that the person you’ve been dealing with is actually the owner of the home.


my bro almost got scammed for a room rental by someone around the start of COVID. through a bit of detective work using our local property appraiser website, the business registration website, and linkedin/facebook, i was able to figure out that the guy he was going to "rent" from was posing as his friend, who actually owned the house, and had all of his friend's (and his friend's parents') real contact information. dude basically folded when we started calling him by his real name, made it clear that we knew where he worked, and showed up there demanding the deposit back. a lot of information is public if you know where to look.


A lot of it is online. You could probably Google "(your county) Assessors Office"


Elvis Presley’s autopsy will be released in 2027


Was this supposed to be some secretive thing where they didn't release it decades ago? Or did local laws prohibit it or something?


From what I was able to dig up the family requested the autopsy and not the state. Since the family requested the autopsy they had the option to seal it.


>from what I was able to dig up


It was a rather grave choice of phrasing.


Is that because he's still alive?


Yes! Finally someone got it right


he just went home 😎




And I know the Reddit user name of someone that KNOWS the grandson of the man that PERFORMED the autopsy


I’m totally using this (edited for IRL) the next time someone name drops. Co-worker: I know someone who won an Oscar. Me: Oh? I have a co-worker who knows someone who won an Oscar!


Having somewhat detailed knowledge of age of consent laws. I took a criminal law class in college and we went over various laws, including various levels of sex crimes. It doesn't feel illegal to know that information, but if you know details of those laws, people tend to think you're trying to find loopholes or skirt up against them.


Agreed. I’m in a forensic psych program and the depth of knowledge I have about sex offenders/offenses earns me raised eyebrows on a regular basis.


I’m in accounting and have an interest in fraud hunting. This means that I know quite a bit as to how effectively commit a fraud, as do all my classmates. Fun, isn’t it?


Reminds me of the time I had to do a report on roofies for my forensics class. Two or three days later, my friend made a joke about popping some roofies to get wasted while we were sitting in a Whataburger booth at like 1AM. I responded with something along the lines of “they’re just regular painkillers until you add alcohol to the mix. It just lowers your alcohol tolerance, so you can get alcohol poisoning off one or two drinks… And Whataburger doesn’t sell liquor.” Instantly regretted it, because I realized how creepy it sounded as I was saying it.


> I realized how creepy it sounded as I was saying it. You really shouldn’t feel ashamed knowing so much about Whataburer’s offerings. It’s 2021, let your freak flag fly!


According to what a flight attendant told me, the TVs on airplanes that charge you to watch aren’t connected to the wifi when they’re at the gate, so you can scan any card that resembles a debit card. They just store the info to be charged later, so if you give them a bogus card, you might still be able to get free tv.


That seems unwise, seeing as they know your seat number.




Swiper, dont swipe!


Nutmeg, when eaten in large quantities, is a psychedelic drug that can cause hallucinations, coma, or even death.


Exactly how much nutmeg before reaching the coma level? Asking for a friend.


In an old episode of Beavis and Butthead, Beavis asks Butthead if there's any "mutneg" left.


So *that's* why Alton Brown always keeps nutmeg in his pocket.


Well which one is it? Am I about to have a great night or piss off all my loved ones?


I’ve done that. Ate something like a teaspoon fresh grated and passed out almost immediately. Woke up some 30 hours later confused as I’ve never been (I live alone) and the dreams slowly came back during the next day. I had a lot of trouble separating dreams from actual memories and sometimes thought I was still dreaming when I was out in public which is extremely dangerous. So yeah. Don’t eat nutmeg


Wow I had no idea until this post but I was eating a spoonful a day for my acne and it did wonders.


When your acne is gone but only because you keep reliving that one scene from Poltergeist every time you look at yourself in the mirror.


Really (before 1997/98 or so) old microsoft product keys relied on a REALLY simple validity check. They were numbers in the form XXXX-YYYYYYY. The first 4 digits were specific to the software (I think Office 97 was 0402?) and fixed. The last 7 .. the check was just that the sum of all digits has to be able to be divided by 7 without rest. So 1111111 worked all the time. 1234567 worked all the time, 7777777 did.


Pre xp there was a program called norton ghost. Supposed to make a windows backup file like modern windows does so in event harddrive fails you put in a new drive, format it, pop in the recovery disc and poof windows and files restored. So need win 95/98/00 on another computer? Just keep reloading your image all over the dang place. Didnt need keys haha


If your local Walmart is closed overnight but there are employees working there, the doors probably aren’t locked and the self check registers are on. There’s actually nothing keeping you from going in there, picking up a few items, using self checkout and walking out. I work at Walmart overnight and this guy did that a couple nights ago. He didn’t speak English and when a manager noticed him they actually just escorted him to grab his items, check out and go.


How much my coworkers make.


Fun fact: talking about your salary (i’m assuming you’re in the US) is one of the few things your boss can’t fire you for


They can't *legally* fire you for. They can still fire you and you might not be able to afford a lawyer to fight back against it. Labor laws in the US are a joke.


They can also just fire you for literally no reason. They literally don't even have to provide a reason as to why you were fired, and that is 100% legal in most cases.


No, they’ll just fire you for some made up BS like “i don’t like you getting haircuts on Thursdays” or “You don’t have enough pairs of shoes”


A reminder that 49/50 states are at-will-employment states! Chew too loudly? Fired. Late once? Fired. Gay? uhh.....you chew too loudly.


Fun fact: If you live in about any country that isn't the US, not doing your job properly is about the _only_ reason you can be fired for.


If you're a state or federal employee, your salary is subject to a FOIA request. Some places will do this, aggregate the data, and make it available for public viewing. Like [the Texas Tribune](https://salaries.texastribune.org/).


Youtube Vanced is a free app that's basically Youtube premium without spending money.


Is this only for android?




Dang it. Thx for the answer


And the same devs make the Brave browser, easiest way to block ads on mobile.


you can block ads on firefox too


Anything like this for apple?


Thanks for changing my life


How alot of places just let you and a friend in if you wear a construction vest and helmet and carry a ladder


I've learned this from watching a lot of urban explorer videos. It's actually quite scary how easy it is to get into a restricted area with just a high-vis jacket.


Back in the day, we used to go to this very popular night club, where people started lining up at 6pm. Met a guy inside partying one night wearing an orange construction vest. He said he bypassed the entire line and they let him right in the door, because he was wearing that vest and carrying a clipboard. He told the bouncers he was the Fire Marshal.


Would have been smarter to ditch the vest after he got in so as not to draw attention in case a bouncer came in to see the "fire marshal" dancing around.


well harassing a real fire marshal is not smart. He could write them a ticket.


Bouncer sees “fire Marshall” dancing and says “what are you doing” “Fire Marshall” “I’m making sure your floors are rated for these blazing moves”




Me and a friend got into a lot of places because we had a dirt spattered work truck


You the guys who pulled up at my site saying they were there to collect the copper?


Is it still stealing if you tell them what your going to do and they let you?


another trick is carry a clipboard noone challenges people carrying clipboards


I worked summers at a car part factory, either running a press or sorting/testing parts for QC. Clipboard trick works, but it's even better if you have a dinged up part in your hand. I spent an hour just wandering the plant, saying I was looking for clipboard guy.


Working in a plant when we were kinda fucking off supervisor showed up and all 3 of us grabbed a random part off the back of the cart or a tool and held it looking at it and pointing at each others pieces "arguing" about failure points and how to fix it haha.


A school trip in a downtown metro area for geography had us carrying clipboards around to mark off points on a map. When we decided to eat, we found an Asian food restaurant. Walking in to this particular restaurant with a clipboard set them into panic mode. So, we played along and went to inspect the kitchen, ran out fingers under the counter and made a few fake notes. After a few minutes, my friend and I agreed they passed the inspection and we left the restaurant and found somewhere else to eat.


My husband is a local health inspector. Now they carry an iPad and a thermometer.


How much has anyone on this site actually tried that? I bet it doesn't work as well as people here pretend it does lol




Aside from Native American, there is no legal definition of race in the USA so there’s no such thing as “lying” about your race on a form. On the other hand, others could be in legal hot water for trying to challenge you on it with “you don’t *look* like that race” or something along those lines.




If you want to disrupt an airport it is usually super easy to drive, walk, boat etc onto the tarmac directly and security will rarely notice you before you're already causing problems Used to write marketing copy for security companies. 90% of our airport copy was "hey wanna have some security on the back end? no? maybe?"


Jeff Bezos works on the 6th floor of his building Day 1 in Seattle. He has his own private security on that floor (different from building security). A silent alarm goes off when you press the elevator button and you're not Jeff Bezos and his security will be waiting to arrest you when the elevator opens.


Whichever building he works in is called Day 1. They renamed the old Day 1 buildings when the new one was built.


Arrest you for what? The should have the 6th floor button disabled or have it inaccessible to anyone without clearance.


Private security is not arresting anyone. I think he means "detained" or questioned/escorted by security staff.


Why is the building called that?


Amazon has a saying "it's always day 1", as in there's always much to learn.


What jury nullification is.


All I can think of is the LSAT reading comp passage about the subject. It was among the more interesting ones imo.


All I can think of is OJ


100%! Some of the black jurors have even come out and admitted they voted to acquit him, because he’s black.


It was more than just that though. The trial was so long that most were sequestered away from their families and barred from interacting with the world for multiple months, including not being allowed to leave their hotel rooms (at least according to the OJ docuseries from 5 or 6 years ago). One of the jurors said she was so fatigued from that that it may have influenced her decision to just get it over with.


A friend of my mother's was a juror on the 3rd John Gotti trial, the one that finally got him convicted and sent to Marion for life. They were 100% sequestered from the moment they were empaneled. Could literally only talk to the US Marshals on their security detail. Not even to other jurors. They were allowed 60 minutes of monitored phone conversation per week. They weren't allowed to read newspapers, magazines, consume any media (TV) that wasn't pre-vetted. So no local news, etc. Only allowed to watch VHS tapes provided to them by the Marshals, and every once in a while for 9 months, they'd take them to the 3rd-run dollar theater for a movie where they all had to sit apart and weren't allowed to talk to each other. It was a COVID-19 lockdown before it was cool, and no internet. It ruined his life. His wife divorced him, he lost his job (they "eliminated his position," which is BS because he was a friggin' paralegal in a law firm) and it just...fucked him up a bit.


Sounds like a punishment. You could argue that Gotti himself got off easy compared to the guy who was laid off and abandoned by his spouse for performing a civic duty.


And he was also “OJ” and it was a crime of passion so they were like she probably deserved it. They definitely knew he killed her.




It's when the jury knows the defendant is guilty but chooses to acquit them because they are either opposed to the law, personally biased in favour of the defendant, or find the punishment is too harsh.


I feel like more people need to know about this.


If you google pizza hut, you get an ad for 30% off dominoes pizza (where I live anyway).


The leg lock trick around a pole. Saw it while on holidays on the west coast of Ireland.


The what now?


In my town, there are some mountain paths that have a big "ENTRY BANNED - LETHAL DANGER" sign. The truth is that: 1. Entry is not banned, it's just that you can't count on public services if you get hurt 2. The danger exists only from Monday to Saturday from 9 AM to 5 PM - it's caused by the construction of avalanche barrier. Outside of that hours, it's safe to enter.


I assume there's also potentially lethal danger 24/7 in the winter, hence the avalanche barrier under construction.


Dollar store pregnancy tests are just as effective as their more expensive counterparts


You can get like 100 strip tests on Amazon for pretty cheap


I bought a box of four and I felt like it was a waste... 100 seems like overkill.


It's most likely for organizations and health clinics


Ohh I’m bout to say maybe go easy on them bedsprings lol


I've been paranoid about getting pregnant since I was like 8. Didn't know about sex really and was raised catholic. I did know about periods abd since I didn't have one i figured I was pregnant. Still have that anxiety and it is a little more reasonable because I do have (safe) sex. The day I realized I could just take a test whenever I wanted to shut those thoughts down was a massive improvement in my mental health. Probably gonna look up the 100 test pack lol.


In the goonies in the news scene, one of the characters says "the octopus was scary" but there was no octopus scene, but it was a deleted scene where right after they find the gems a giant octopus fights them but they defeat it with the hand recorder


I've seen that clip! Despite being fun the movie is better without it (and you can pretend Data just says it because kids make up crazy shit).


Richard Donner, the director, is one of the cops using a quad bike at the end.


It takes minimal negotiation and paperwork to set up a vending machine. You can probs stock it up for 100 bucks buying bulk and then you'll make like twice that back. Edit since this has a decent amount of upvotes, a bonus fact! The Ford F-150 is the smallest vehicle that can be used as a tax write-off up to iirc a $1.2 million return, but it only applies if you use it for commerce. (I'm no tax expert so I may have gotten something wrong)


*throws away blueprint for giant sunblock* New plan....


The fact that whales have a 42 inch anus and that their fart bubbles can hold a horse


In the novel *Moby Dick*, there's a part where a sailor removes the foreskin of a right whale that they had captured, and used it as a rain poncho.


Just why tho


it was raining


To find the Dick you must become a Dick.


The horse part made me think of Sonic breathing in the wrong bubble Lmao


Swimming pools don’t release a blue chemical when you pee in it


I know that was always a fake rumor. But when I was a kid everyone said it was purple colored. Not proud of it, but there was a couple times at a water park, I peed just a little to check if they had that "chemical" before unloading my bladder.


Oh, waterparks and public pools! The original gender-neutral bathrooms!


There is no tangible evidence whatsoever that Humpty Dumpty was a personified egg. Which means he is likely just a regular human who was ripped to pieces from the impact of his fall.


King Richard III of England was a hunchback. His warhorse was nicknamed “The Wall”. He died at the battle of Bosworth Field, where he was broken open by halberds.


Wasn't there a theory that it was a cannon?


I know where the one man who does water testing for my hometown lives. Lot of responsibility for one person.


i've spent the past 18 months at home, in my neighborhood walking two dogs 3x a day (sometimes separately) at all hours of the day, so: the layout, egresses, and security patterns of many local establishments, locations of cameras and places where the cops hang out eating snacks, and how to get through various alleys from point A to point in my house with the lights off


It costs Allstate insurance $285 to just process a homeowner's insurance claim, and that assumes they pay nothing out on the claim itself. (I assume most other insurance companies are about the same)


The ducks at the park are free


Back in the 1970s, a dude tested that theory. With geese, though. There was this big pond in Rochester, and for some reason they decided to put a big fountain in the middle of it to keep that part of it clear of ice in the winter. Some genius figured he could break a hole in the ice in another part of the pond, put on his scuba gear, swim under the ice, grab a goose by the feet, and pull it under until it drowned. Genius! Why didn't people think of that before? Well, probably because: a) Human beings are not adapted to aquatic life b) Geese are The goose fought back so furiously that Scuba Guy lost the fight and died in the attempt to procure a free Christmas dinner. So the geese at the park might be free, but they might also cost your life. Dunno about ducks though. I think maybe I could take a duck, underwater, in scuba gear.


Shit and here I was just gonna throw it in the car


This is the best thing I've read all day. Go goose!


I dunno, a duck in scuba gear sounds pretty scary.


You can take them home. I have 458 of them


I can shit my pants and there is nothing anyone can do about it


Get 64 hexadecimal characters in order and you might become a billionaire just like that. Conversely, if you are a billionaire and someone guesses your 64character sequence, you might just lose all the wealth in there. Talking about crypto private keys here. Also, it's tooooooooooo improbable. But yeah.

Unfortunately it doesn't work like the old microsoft product keys.


Everyone's key [is contained here](https://libraryofbabel.info/). And so is your comment. And this one. In order right next to each other. Just uh, good luck finding it.


There's a certain beauty in this site. Really. Yes, I should get some sleep.


Is the first one an A?


No. Watch out, you have 5 more guesses before the hangman is complete. And the hanged man is you.


The company I worked for. Has a major flaw in their vehicle interlocking breathalyzers. That took me years to come upon. And they knew they all knew.


Does the flaw have anything to do with, requiring the driver to blow into it, for a second “retest,” WHILE they’re traveling at high speeds on the freeway? My DUI was for drugs and not alcohol, so I wasn’t required to get an interlock device. But, several people in my DUI class said they would frequently have to pull over off the freeway, because their device would alert them that they need to test. I always thought the interlock device required a breathalyzer just to start the vehicle. Requiring it after you’re already driving, seems very unsafe to me.


Is it that the vehicle can be started by capturing a raccoon and making it blow in to the device?


You can get a VALID California medical cannabis card online in any US state, print it out and shop at dispensaries in states with a reciprocal medical cannabis program


All parts of oleander plants are toxic, if ingested you can get anything from, diarrhea, vomiting to irregular heartbeats. Ingesting a single leaf can do some serious damage that Flex Seal can't fix.


There are plenty of toxic plants around, whether cultivated or wild. Poison hemlock, which is an invasive that grows in huge patches, is deadly if you consume just a few leaves. Nightshades are pretty common as well, though the toxicity of different species varies greatly. Spurges, which are pretty common and inconspicious garden weeds, have sap that is severely irritating to the eyes, and can even potentially be blinding. Isn't nature wonderful?


Alot of military contract fleet vehicles use the same key for the entire fleet. Lowest bidders and all. And even then alot of them are just keys to the door. The actual ignition switch is just a knob on the dash. Same vain fords crown victoria police interceptor vatiants all use the same key. Its not even restricted you can buy them online


lowest bidder *that meets spec* and the spec usually calls for all vehicles to use the same key for ease of operation.


There was that one military base in California that kept all their tanks unlocked, and then it turns out that you don't need a key to start a tank, but fortunately no one is crazy enough to just jump in a tank and drive off. [Except for that one time.](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shawn_Nelson_%28criminal%29) The one intelligent thing the Guardsmen did was locking up the ammunition for the tank's guns separately, and not just storing it in the tank.


Car website company I used to work for (around 15 years ago) sold themselves as being the safest place to buy new and used cars. Claiming they would check every car added to their website to make sure it wasn't stolen or previously totalled. Only problem is that they only carry out these tests every few months and the sales team actively inform their car dealership clients when this will happen, so they have the opportunity to take any stolen cars off the site first.


That restaurants often do really disgusting things and have disgusting issues. I used to waitress and then later manage a pizza place — mosquitos in the drain, nests of mice, stink bug infestations, flies feasting on food that falls behind the appliances that isn’t cleaned up frequently like it’s supposed to be, mold in the soda machine, expired ingredients still being used, etc. It’s just.. a lot. I was very, very surprised. I knew that most restaurants naturally deal with these things from time to time, but I didn’t expect it to be this often. I also didn’t expect for management to be so nonchalant about going against inspections and regulations. Other restaurants that friends of mine have managed/otherwise worked at have also had similar issues and it’s pretty wild. I’ve never eaten at the restaurant that I worked at since quitting. I wouldn’t trust it.


I worked in restaurants for ten years and only had one like this (I worked in about 6-7 total). Most restaurant owners take a lot of pride and passion in their business and ensure proper cleanliness. But a lot don’t sadly. I pay close attention to minor details in front of the house to get a good idea of how it’s managed. Are the counters and menus and floor clean? Do you see employees cleaning on downtime? What’s the energy of the employees? Is it busy? The bathrooms? There’s a lot of little things, but a golden rule is if customer facing areas are not clean, then do not eat there. If they don’t give a shit about what customers see, than they certainly don’t follow food safety and appropriate cleanliness standards. I’m also wary of corporate owned restaurants. When you have no skin in the game and your just a manager hired by a Corp, lot less motivation to ensure standards. In my experience, there was a direct correlation to how much time the owners spent there, and how clean it was, for family owned ones. Edit: A word.

Jury nullification. In the US at least, even if all of the members of a jury are convinced that the defendant is guilty, if they don't like the law, they're allowed to vote not guilty.


It's not that they're "allowed" but rather it's inherent to the situation. It can't be prevented. If they admitted outloud that that's what they were doing or that they're trying to convince other jurors to do it, a new trial with a different jury would be held. But if you just do it... then no one can say what your motives were and so it works.


I play tabletop RPGs and googled a lot about making bombs, security and guerilla warfare.


I googled about making gunpowder in D&D, realized it was too hard, and then just went back to simple things flamethrowers, grenades, and wooden mech suits that probably don’t work


Some details about Fritzl Case. Fucking horrifying.


The worst aprt probably wasn't even his daughter, but her kids who lived in a basement until being 19 year old. Imagine living in a fucking basement, and after being an adult seing the world for the first time.


The documentary described how they constantly looked outside the window into trees when they were taken in a police car. I hope they found some level of peace after this.


The way automotive repair services are priced. There are guide books and service manuals which every mechanic is supposed to adhere to and use as the base of their their labor charges. Here's the rub: the job does not always take the amount of time charged/the time listed in the guide. While it is TRUE most jobs are very close to what is being charged, sometimes (especially with more experienced techs or on jobs which are done in routine repetition) the job can take much MUCH much less time. HOWEVER, at least in my experience, more often than not the repair takes MUCH MUCH longer than is being charged (this is especially true with anything involving diagnostics or engine dismantlement. So yes, you may be paying 1.2 hours for an air and cabin filter replacement which took 30 minutes as this is what the labor guide tells the mechanic to charge, but your also only paying 15 hours for a 67 hours parasitic drain diagnostic because of that very same labor guide.


So they give you a quote based on their diagnosis and a time estimate they take from a manual? That's how a lot of services operate. If you bid based on 10 hours labor but it takes 20? Guess what your hourly rate just halved.


Not to mention multiple items in the same area being done is not always discounted back to the vehicle owner. As an example, getting brake work done, while also replacing wheel bearings. The labor quote involved requires dismounting wheels at x amount of time on each. But the tech is not going to put the wheel back on after doing the brakes, just to remove it again to do the bearings. I have went to shops that charged hours per the book. I generally like the shop I go to now, as they will take off the duplicate time that was redundant. My only issue with them was last week, when I dropped off the car on a tuesday, they did not even look at the car until end of day wednesday to give me a quote, then did not order the parts until thursday and they came in too late to do the work so I did not get my car back until 5pm on Friday. It was just a brake job....


That if you dont pay your student loans, like straight up pay $0, there is very little they can do about it. Your credit might get whacked, but how bad? For how long? And if you were already fucked what then? They can garnish your wages, but only through the fed as an intermediary. And there are strict caps on how much they can garnish, likely less than youre paying now.


I'm pretty sure it isn't piracy to use websites like 123movies. Piracy is downloading and distributing pirated content. But just watching it isn't distributing it.


Technically “making a copy” is infringement, and by only downloading, you are only receiving a copy and not making one. If you’re watching, you’re also receiving a copy. No practical distinction between downloading and watching.


That there are indeed people out there that can lick their elbow, despite what we've all been told. Edit: Many people below can allegedly do this. I think this calls for a reddit-elbow-lick-off (name still a working progress, t&c's apply).


I know that everybody who reads this post is naked under their clothes


not many know this but if you eat your clothes you’re naked over your clothes


Jokes on you, I’m not wearing clothes.


That's bold assumption to make, assuming everyone reading this is wearing clothes.




What my friend's close friend looks like naked. We hooked up but he doesn't know that, so I feel like I have illegal knowledge.


The evidence points more towards the fact that Mace Windu is alive rather than dead. He was shocked and pushed through a window. He had plenty of time to recover before reaching the bottom of that giant high-rise, and for a Master Jedi of his power, would have no problems using the force to land safely. As far as I know, nobody in charge of the Star Wars Movie canon has confirmed his death - including Sam Jackson and George Lucas.


Samuel L Jackson believed Windu is alive, and that got back to George Lucas who was like "I'm fine with that"


I have the phone number of somebody who helped "build" the BBC who I'm 99% sure is a paedophile. I don't know whether he meant physically build or otherwise, but I was his sex worker and 8 years later I still have his phone number.


I’m reading about how easy it is to fire people. I know about this. I’ve been fired, laid off, let go, terminated, etc. Read the fine print on any employment application or job offer. It says, “ Employment is on an ‘at will’ basis.” That means that unless you have a contract they can fire you for any reason or no reason. You can also leave for any reason or no reason. The only question will be, whether or not you can collect unemployment benefits.
