Most cops in cali don't care. They know the sun gets unbearable. My entire family has tinted windows all around for every car since the first purchase in 1990. Never had problems.]

quick edit: There are also clear tints that block UV rays.

_BindersFullOfWomen_ 1 point

Hats what I would recommend. You can get say 70-80% tint. Blocks the (nearly) same amount of heat/UV radiation as dark and is legal.

That would make an awesome Powerbank

That’s literally what power banks are though. Just larger.

We have a HAPPY emotion!? Since when?

We have "pretending to be happy to avoid people thinking less of you" but no "Happy"

_BindersFullOfWomen_ 147 points

The happy emotion comes out during the ~15 minutes of sunshine each year. It's quickly replaced with sadness as the smog rolls in to block out the sun.

Serious question time.. I've never eaten them and they've always kind of weirded me out. Are you supposed to chew them or not? I've seen people take them like shots, but at that point don't they just taste like whatever you put on them (lemon and Tabasco, in this case)? I guess I don't see the appeal. I can put toppings

I both love and hate the age of the internet. As I was typing all of that out I thought "I could probably just Google this," but it was already typed.. so.. here we are.

_BindersFullOfWomen_ 2 points

you don't have to chew them, some people do.

Most people take them like shots. You schuck them, then put your topping (most people do a horseradish/cocktail sauce combo), then eat it.

Hey, I'm looking for tools to make life for a quadriplegic easier especially in regards to multimedia. In this case it's an elderly man who doesn't speak English but would probably be able to learn English voice commands. While I know of Amazon Echo and the google equivalent, I don't know if there is a functionality that would help to switch TV channels or adjust bed frames etc.

If you know of alternative gadgets that could help with said situation I'd be all ears. Even just giving me a starting point in order to build these myself would be of huge help.

I apologize if this doesn't meet the criteria for a "gadget". I thought it reasonably close.

_BindersFullOfWomen_ 1 point

Amazon Echo or Google Home paired with a Harmony Remote and Hub. That lets you set "TV activites" and they could be activated by voice.

If they accidentally initiated a drop in, wouldn't Amazon say that? Why keep that information to themselves and let everyone believe the Echos are sending private conversations to random people?

_BindersFullOfWomen_ 1 point

Amazon's updated response:

Echo woke up due to a word in background conversation sounding like “Alexa.” Then, the subsequent conversation was heard as a “send message” request. At which point, Alexa said out loud “To whom?” At which point, the background conversation was interpreted as a name in the customers contact list. Alexa then asked out loud, “[contact name], right?” Alexa then interpreted background conversation as “right”. As unlikely as this string of events is, we are evaluating options to make this case even less likely.

So, Alexa misheard them and then they did not respond when Alexa prompted them to confirm.

since you're all inside the network.

Physically, yes, but logically you have separate networks. So, for example, things that rely on mDNS (homekit, airplay) won't work out of the box.

_BindersFullOfWomen_ 0 points

I understand that they're logically different networks, but couldn't you modify the subnet mask to allow for devices on different vlans to communicate?

frygod 5 points

Not how vlans work. They're essentially entirely separate switches sharing hardware. You *could* pull it off with static routes and ACLs though.

_BindersFullOfWomen_ 1 point

Ah okay. That was the disconnect.

How much does this thing cost? On the website it just says preorder

_BindersFullOfWomen_ 1 point

When I got a pre-order offer email back in March it was $50.

DoctorTurbo 1 point

Can you use it on non-nanoleaf products? or does it basically just control the Aurora?

_BindersFullOfWomen_ 2 points

It works with any Homekit enabled device

He didn't get it right. You can apply after 30 years of residence (with time spent under 20 counting as 2 years), and must be a permanent resident for 5 years before the application. You can bypass the requirements by election. The voting population of the community of residents vote. Final approval requires consent from the parliament and to be granted by the prince.

_BindersFullOfWomen_ 5 points

That’s my bad. Was going off of memory.

That new friend then got a citizenship which made the population increase by 0.5%

_BindersFullOfWomen_ 17 points

Nah, getting citizenship there takes about 30 years, and the entire country votes on it.

"Super-rich" probably have non-salaried jobs, right? So their income is mostly capital gains. Therefore, capital loss can be subtracted from their capital gains.

_BindersFullOfWomen_ 7 points

Yeah, don't read anything below the line. I misunderstood what the $3,000 capital loss cap applied to. /u/gdfriddell explains it much better (and more correctly) below:

So if you make 100k in cap gains on abc stock but lose 105k on xyz stock that same year you can offset 100k of your capital gains with the losses. So no you are down to 5k capital loss. You can then apply 3k to your income that year and the remaining 2k gets “rolled over” into next year.

This is a perfect example why you shouldn't use armchair accountants to do you taxes.


Sure, but that doesn't matter. You can only deduct up to $3,000 of capital losses per year.

For example, you invested X into Halle Barry's Catwoman and you invested Y into the Incredibles.

The Incredibles makes you Y*10 (because it's the Incredibles).

* Total Gain: Y*10

Catwoman is a horrible movie and you don't make anything back.

* Total Loss: X

No matter how big X is, you can only use $3,000 of it per year.

Using simple-ish numbers.

You invest $100,000 into Catwoman and $1,000 into The Incredibles.

At the end of the year the Incredibles have made you $100,000 (total value $101,000). You now have to pay capital gains (technicially you wouldn't be paying capital gains on a movie, but I picked movies for simplicity so bear with me) on the $100,000 you made on the incredibles. Since the movie took longer than one year to make, you're looking at long-term capital gains taxes, say 15%. Your bill to the IRS for your "Incredible" investment is $15,000.

But wait! You lost $100,000 on that stupid Catwoman movie. You should be able to write that off a capital loss.

And you can. Just not at once. You're only able to write off $3,000 worth of capital losses per year.

So for this year, you had $100,000 in gains and $100,000 in losses. But, because of how the tax code is structured you can only deduct $3,000 of those losses for this year (you can deduct another $3,000 next year, this is called deferring). Making your total owed to Uncle Sam $97,000 * 15%, or $14,550.

Now, you may be thinking "but wait, didn't Trump have millions in losses and hasn't paid taxes in years." Yes, that's correct. But, that's because his losses were through a business. Business losses have no yearly cap and excess losses can be deferred (just like with capital losses).

This "fun fact" is also why you see many of the "super rich" setting up corporations for things that a normal person probably wouldn't. In the event the venture loses money, they can utilize the entire loss.

gdfriddell 3 points

Ya that’s incorrect (fortunately) capital losses can be used directly to offset capital gains. The $3,000 max you’re referring to is only after you’ve exhausted your capital gains and you can apply that to your income at that point.

So if you make 100k in cap gains on abc stock but lose 105k on xyz stock that same year you can offset 100k of your capital gains with the losses. So no you are down to 5k capital loss. You can then apply 3k to your income that year and the remaining 2k gets “rolled over” into next year.

Ah okay. My mistake was what I was applying the $3,000 cap too. Thanks for correcting me. I'll update my comment.

a USA company/entity.

I mean, implementing them would hurt one specific US company.

I could see if you were comparing this to MyQ. This isn’t that...this is some random company literally using the Itead Sonoff. It would take an hour tops to program this exact service. Maybe 2 hours if you’re using an iPhone. I make $40 an hour, so this saves me money.

I have my own custom light switches that allow me to use the physical switch while keeping the functionality of using Google Home and LIFX app for all of my bulbs. I don’t have to open a Z Wave app to power the bulb back on and then go back and adjust the light. There isn’t a system on the market that does this. LAN Protocol will always be faster and more reliable that’s Z-Wave too!

If someone wants invisible and convenient home automation, you have to do it yourself.

Update your app.

_BindersFullOfWomen_ 1 point

Updating the app doesn't resolve the issue. It's a server side setting that has to be enabled for your Echo device. Until then, it doesn't matter if you check the iOS app, Android app, or web portal. It's not going to display.

What this shows is that the justice system is an utter failure. It's supposed to deter bad people from doing bad things, not everyone from doing anything.

One of the biggest problems for OBGYN’s is that they can be sued for malpractice up to the child’s 18th birthday. So if any issue shows up down the road that could possibly be from an improper deliver, the parents can go after the doctor.
