I was forced to go to a store on Monday because I buy my liquor there and they don't deliver. I hated every minute of it. I buy a 6-month supply, I should make it a year.

Will they prepare your order in advance, so you just stop in, pay, and load the boxes into the van?
I don't mind liquor stores. I don't drink much myself*, but I am responsible for restocking the liquor cabinets at three or four houses.

Not that I remember, anyway.

Why on Earth would you be responsible for that, what the heck do you do for a living. And no they don't take orders over the phone I have to physically go in there and pick out what I want.

A shorter list would be the things that I like. I like going to the library, I like going to a park in the middle of the week when there's nobody there, I like being alone which I am 98% of the time, I like watching YouTube. I like cooking everything from scratch. Things that I don't like will take up pages, why bother.

Actually that isn't true. For some reason people like it when I'm around because I'm funny, I always see the humor in everything. It started getting me in trouble in high school and nothing has changed.

Really?? You have thousands of posts here, and I for one have yet to read anything from you that is humorous. Perhaps you can ferret out a couple of, pardon the expression, LOL posts to refresh memories, or better yet, post something original right now that is laugh worthy rather than the unhappy, negative stuff that is predominant in those thousands of posts.

I've let this go a little longer than I should have.

tuttigym, telling another member that "people do not want to be around you either" is a personal insult against that member. Starting a debate about whether another member is "not well-liked, unduly negative, etc." is not allowable; that is not the purpose of this forum. I'm going to let this go without any action because EvenBob does not seem to be upset about this insult, but my advice to you would be to just drop this line of discussion.

Reason for that is simple. Look who's murdered in the United States the most and look who gives a rats behind if those murders are solved or not. Families of the victims care and that's about it.

You have to wonder how much investigation is actually done. Most people get killed by someone they know. Lots of times a crime of passion. But other times?

Consider Bob Cranes murder was partly never solved because at the time Scottsdale was a cow town that had neither the manpower or money. There is a “Law and Order” episode showing a day in the life of the detectives. They worked many cases. The show usually makes it look like one murder is their life but not so.

It lasted so long for good reason. And yes they got ideas from real life. In real life though there would not be all those hottie ADAs who were single. And I think far more plea bargains.

Whether it's better to live in a country that "solves" crimes better depends on what they consider as solving. Grabbing someone to solve a PR problem is not my idea of good crime solving.

link to original post


here are 2 graphs from Wiki - pretty interesting - to me anyway

there was a spike in homicides from prohibition thru the Great Depression

it looks like homicides were at their highest points in 1974, 1982 and 1992

the graphs give a good picture - they've been age adjusted - because the population is aging - people are living longer - and old people don't often commit violent crimes

the first graph from wiki is only homicides

the 2nd graph supports your statement - it shows all violent crime except for rape going down since about 1990

their definition of violent crime is homicide, rape, robbery and aggravated assault

To make matters worse, there’s a certain percentage of closed cases that convicted the wrong guy or gal and a certain percentage of conspiracies where some of the culprits cooperate in order to put one or more of their colleagues behind bars. All I’m saying is that the “solved or cleared rate” is an upper limit of the percentage of actual murderers who are convicted (I.e., the number is actually worse than it looks)!

Mayors of cities and other Powers That Be know that they cannot solve a high % of homicides with the current level of manpower

yet they don't increase the manpower

the only conclusion that can be drawn:

the low % of solved homicides is totally acceptable to the various Powers That Be

Have to be able to find capable and willing manpower as well. Some places maybe they aren’t willing to pay enough to get the manpower idk.

This comment is meant to be about civics only: St. Louis currently has 300 openings for police. State has threatened a takeover of the police department and publicly says they’ll hire 1k officers. Sounds good to the ears, but if everything else is the same just means you’re going to have 1,300 job openings.

I find that it’s not uncommon for hotel front desk employees to have SNAPPED or first 48 hours or whatever the murder shows are on.

Then I have to do the quick math on the probability of this guy murdering me. I always end up with the conclusion it’s the most interesting thing on for middle of the weekday daytime TV if you’re not into older classic shows, so decent chance I’d be doing the same in their spot.

even though the no. of homicides in the U.S. has dropped there were still about 18,450 in 2023

it works out to be an average of about 50 per day___________unreal

and due to the low closure rate there are prolly at least 9,000 of last year's killers still out there

and that's just one year's worth

Mexico had over 33,000 homicides in 2022, or just over 26 per 100k, to the US's 6.4 per 100k. Only five countries in the world have more homicides than the US, but per capita we're quite a ways down the list.

here's just a few of the countries that have a lower per capita murder rate than the U.S. :

I would guess that many or most of these countries have a death penalty for homicide and employ it often - and fear may explain many of the low rates


Argentina
Chile's is slightly higher
Cuba
India
Iran
Kenya
Liberia
Mongolia
Morocco
Mozambique
Niger
Philippines
Spain is way, way less
Tanzania
Tunisia
Turkey
Yemen
Vietnam - way, way less
Zambia
Zimbabwe's is just a little big higher

Another thing is how do they count them? The USA is and always has been a fairly violent country. But we also count everything and keep good records on it. I do not think everyone does. Same thing as infant mortality rates. We are set up to count as many as might fit the bill. Other countries count different. So we look worse even if we are really not.

Are vehicular homicide deaths included in the rate? That alone will push our numbers up. Ditto "negligent homicide" charges. Unless all of this is normalized, and to do so is near impossible, a person should not go off half-cocked about the homicide rate in the USA.

anyone want to wager on this? I'm giving odds

I don't know if we'll see any humans go to Mars in that 20 years, but the chances are good. It's possible we will see deaths, I would even say that is probable

Let's see 1 million -- frozen embryos to Mars? .

Clones made on Mars?

Whatever he's planning, I would definitely call it "ambitious".

Miscellaneous QOTD question of the day

If passwords could only be entered once every 5 seconds per user page open, how can a blunt force password hack use all those data dumps stolen online in any reasonable amount of time?
I also suppose if a site knows their average visits per day is rounded to the nearest couple thousands, a blunt force attack combined with the other regular customers couldn't exceed that number with thousands more. Because such an unusual amount would be stopped by the excessive limit.

Also, I was in charge of such a data base, I would add 10s of thousands of fake names and passwords to the real data base in case it was ever hacked. (if that's possible as in manageable by the system) They would not work at all of course.

I just I just looked it up this morning he's worth 257 billion. Goes up by the minute. They say there's a good chance that by 2030 he'll be the world's first trillionaire because of AI and his robot company that's part of Tesla.

the distance to Mars is roughly 140 million miles - but can be more or less depending on where it is in its orbit

Wiki estimates the travel time it would take to get there as about 9 months - based on our current tech

better pack at least 2 suitcases________________(-:/

the temp on Mars can range from about 70 farenheit to about -225 Farenheit

better pack a warm sweater_____________(-:/

it gets really cold the farther it moves away from the sun

winds are sometimes strong enough to create dust storms that cover the entire planet and it can take months for the dust to settle

Mars Pathfinder is an American robotic spacecraft that landed a roving probe on Mars in 1997

the rover - named Sojourner - is the first ever to operate outside the Earth-Moon system

Totally absurd. I put the chance any humans get there and return to earth in 20 years at 50/50 at best.

For this you are talking at least 100000 trips there to take both people and supplies. His fanboys will believe it though.

Is there an extra charge for checked bags? If so, I will cram mine in the overhead compartment.

the first people Elon Musk will send to Mars will be construction workers

they will build luxury condominiums for the one million people who are going to live there_________________(-:/


and in other news a guy is trying to make big bucks selling fortress like accommodations to people who believe some horrible catastrophe is likely to come in their lifetimes

survivalist compounds - per the article 7% of U.S. households - about 20 million Americans identify as "preppers" - people preparing for a doomsday scenario

In other news, postage stamps are going up to 73 cents each. I am old enough to remember postage at 3 cents for regular mail and 5 cents for air mail. YIKES!!!

Elon Musk is full of crap. No one will be living there in 20 years. We'll be lucky if we've even had one manned mission by then. I like that he's dumping money into space exploration but he is being completely unrealistic.
