    Dogsitting is amazing - we can't really have a dog but we have a nice rotation of dog sitting for friends going that works perfect.

    I watch music reaction videos on YouTube sometimes. I understand I’m part of the problem and should be shot into the sun.

    I just got a reco for a reaction to a reaction video. That’s a little much.

    "If you don't see how they react to the reaction, how will you know how to react????"

    “Drum teacher reacts to heavy metal drummer reacting to Danny Carey playing Pneuma live”

    I watched the original video at least a year ago, but algorithms don’t give up.

    I fell asleep to a random music video or something once and my YouTube somehow went on a Fox News bender all night.

    Basically irreparable damage to my recommended.

    Spotify/YouTube etc give me ads in Spanish and for stuff in Dallas I guess because it's the closest major city? Idk I've only been twice to Dallas, live 5 hours away. But I am going at the end of the month and I looked up one thing and now I'm getting swarmed harder than usual of course.

    I liked Lost in Vegas for awhile. Mostly because it was sort of like hearing some of my favorite songs for the first time again. The ones where it's like a composer or whatever don't do a whole lot for me

    Speaking of adults doing cardio for kids soccer, this past Saturday was my 2 yr olds second soccer practice. A group of people set up the sand volleyball area and we’re having a game at the same time as practice so I basically got to run wind sprints chasing him down when he’d remember they were there and fake us out by pretending to be paying attention to his coach. I was sweating so bad it looked like I jumped in a swimming pool.

    FBI Warns That Fraud On LinkedIn Poses A ‘Significant Threat'
    The FBI said it has seen an increasing number of cases in which fraudsters use LinkedIn to find their victims. Sean Ragan, the FBI's special agent in charge of the San Francisco and Sacramento, California, field offices, sat down for an exclusive interview with CNBC to detail how the scams work.

    "It's a significant threat," Ragan said. "This type of fraudulent activity is significant, and there are many potential victims, and there are many past and current victims."

    Ragan explained that many instances of fraud involve cryptocurrency. He said that the scammers will create fake profiles and use them to send private messages to their potential victims. In some cases, they will spend several weeks or months gaining the trust of their victims before attempting to scam them.

    The scam usually starts with an offer to make money by investing in cryptocurrency. To give the scam the appearance of being legitimate, the fraudsters instruct their victims to invest using well-known platforms. Then, after a few months, the scammers convince their victim to move the money to another site, which they control.

    Once the money is moved, the scammers then withdraw everything.

    One woman told CNBC that she lost nearly $230,000 to a fraudster she met on LinkedIn.

    "I still remember the day," Mei Mei Soe said. "Once I realized I had been scammed, I tried to contact him but couldn't find him anywhere. I work hard, and every single dollar I save, I work hard to save that. It hurts."

    "And it's not just all of our savings, people have lost their houses and their car loans. It's life-destroying and soul-crushing," another victim who lost $700,000 said.

    LinkedIn issued a statement to CNBC saying that they actively work to prevent fraud and spam from spreading on their platform.

    "Our teams use technology like artificial intelligence paired with teams of experts to stop the vast majority of content that violates these policies before it ever goes live - 96% of detected fake accounts and 99.1% of spam and scams are caught and removed by our automated defenses," the company explained in a blog post.

    Pronunciation talk -

    Currently on a conference call. People are painfully doing some small talk. This woman has said "abhorrent" a handful of times. She's pronouncing it 'abbor-ant'. Zero hint of enunciating the H.

    I feel like Im going crazy.

    I still have sentimental stuff in storage in Denver. Now that my living situation is stable I’m driving out to get it. I’ll be doing stuff in between but probably won’t know what until I do it. Just a fly by the seat of my pants road trip. Can’t wait.

    I saw Ed, the movie about the monkey that plays baseball, when I was a child and even then thought it was hot garbage. Still the worst movie I’ve ever seen. Killed Matt LeBlanc’s career outside of friends
