    Or I assume someone just paid a bot for upvotes or something. Particularly the /r/gaming's obligatory "oh look at this game I've been working on" post that seems to pop up daily. And it's a shitty side scroller with 8-bit graphics or some crap.

    I know it doesn't sound like much, but it's fun to poke our thumb in the eye of the perverts in power that perpetrated this. Saying, "we know what you did." Also, if we do it long enough, maybe one of the underlings will admit to something that will cause the ball to start rolling on real consequences.

    That's a really long way off. But it's more likely to happen this way, than if we say nothing.

  • New-found-Girth
    5 points Nov 14,2019, 5:28am

    Don't know where this is but here in the UK it is illegal to warn other drivers of speed traps. It's a bullshit law because at the same time the government constantly say speed traps are not there to make money from fines but as "a deterrent". If that's true then me warning someone so they slow down should be lauded, not punished.

    That said, disagreeing with a law doesn't give you the right to break it.

    Next time come up with a lie. Say that there was a person acting weird on the sidewalk and that you wanted to warn them about it. Don't know about your legal situation but where I come from one may only flash the lights to signal a potential danger. So here you'd come off the hook with that I believe

    20 or so years back in Cairns, Queensland, I used to finish work an hour before my ex, and would spend that time at the courthouse as a spectator.

    A 16 y/o lad was charged with obstruction and hindering police after being caught sitting beside the road with a sign warning of the police trap ahead.

    In court he refused representation, against the advice of the magistrate.

    He asked to cross examine the arresting officer.
    He asked if that speed trap was to regulation, distance wise, and suggested it was too close to where the traffic slowed from 80 to 60.
    The cop said it was measured and was right on the minimum distance allowed from the speed sign.
    Lad asked if the purpose of this trap was for revenue raising?
    The cop said it was for public safety.
    Lad asked how many people were pulled over for speeding in the 90 minutes he sat there with the sign.
    Cop said none.

    Lad said if it was a revenue raising exercise, then I'm guilty of having hindered those efforts,
    but it it was for public safety, then haven't I assisted?

    The magistrate dismissed the charges.

    In over a year of spending an hour each afternoon watching court, that one was my fave.

    2 points Nov 14,2019, 3:33am

    Never warn anybody. If they speed, that's their personal problem. Imagine they are a criminal running from the police. Imagine they hurt your family. It's to each responsibility to follow the speed limit.

    Is there a law that states warning other drivers of speed camera is illegal?

  • JamesTrendall
    1 points Nov 14,2019, 4:35am

    In the UK it's illegal to flash your lights to warn of a speed camera van unless there's a problem further up the road.

    When i was pulled over for doing this i decided to get a big speed camera sign printed on a flag and hold it up by the road waving to drivers.

    The local van that sits on a bend hates me and has since started to leave when he see's me drive past and pull over. I've had the same cop that pulled me over give me the thumbs up and many many drivers thank me. I've even had a lorry driver stop and give me £10 as i do this everytime the van parks up which is about 3 times a month. Not much but it's honest work. Those who ignore my warnings get a speeding ticket and deserve it.

    It's a straight 60mph very wide road in the middle of no-where and as you go around the bend you're hit with the van.

  • New-found-Girth

    Don't know where this is but here in the UK it is illegal to warn other drivers of speed traps. It's a bullshit law because at the same time the government constantly say speed traps are not there to make money from fines but as "a deterrent". If that's true then me warning someone so they slow down should be lauded, not punished.

    That said, disagreeing with a law doesn't give you the right to break it.

    Next time come up with a lie. Say that there was a person acting weird on the sidewalk and that you wanted to warn them about it. Don't know about your legal situation but where I come from one may only flash the lights to signal a potential danger. So here you'd come off the hook with that I believe

    20 or so years back in Cairns, Queensland, I used to finish work an hour before my ex, and would spend that time at the courthouse as a spectator.

    A 16 y/o lad was charged with obstruction and hindering police after being caught sitting beside the road with a sign warning of the police trap ahead.

    In court he refused representation, against the advice of the magistrate.

    He asked to cross examine the arresting officer.
    He asked if that speed trap was to regulation, distance wise, and suggested it was too close to where the traffic slowed from 80 to 60.
    The cop said it was measured and was right on the minimum distance allowed from the speed sign.
    Lad asked if the purpose of this trap was for revenue raising?
    The cop said it was for public safety.
    Lad asked how many people were pulled over for speeding in the 90 minutes he sat there with the sign.
    Cop said none.

    Lad said if it was a revenue raising exercise, then I'm guilty of having hindered those efforts,
    but it it was for public safety, then haven't I assisted?

    The magistrate dismissed the charges.

    In over a year of spending an hour each afternoon watching court, that one was my fave.

    Companies do this because printing all the required info in the neck looks bad, especially on light colored fabrics where you can see the print from the outside. Even without tags you still need coo, content, care and rn by legal requirement. The only one of those that is required to be placed in the neck is coo. It’s a much cleaner look to only print the brand name, size and coo in the neck. Then for the other required info they often do a tag in the seam.

    ..and then when you trim the tag off, it's left two sharp plastic tag stubs woven into the seam of the shirt. Every time you move, they dig into your soft, fleshy abdomen, only solution is to rip it out of the seam. Now you've got a big hole!! Terrible!

    14 points Nov 16,2019, 11:53pm

    I think this is simplifying and kind of ignorant. Are you implying that people shouldn't have enough additional income to eat out every day? There are many varying circumstances with limitless variabilities that apply to finances.

    I'm assuming the proceeding argument would move towards jobs and making more money, or trying harder and getting better opportunities. How much do the people you hear complaining pay on their living expenses, and what's their income? How many hours do they work, and do they have additional unknown expenses or maybe medical issues that they don't receive benefits for?

    Do they have the time to cook and clean? Some people work multiple jobs, or take care of others, or have other obligations that might interfere with their accessing and preparing meals.

    Are you bothered that they complain because they don't make as much money as people who do the same amount as work, but hold higher paying positions and who have excess disposable income and could afford to do so?

    Are you frugal and think that you're better at managing your finances even though you have no idea what kind of experiences have lead them to the point in their lives where they aren't fortunate enough to spend a reasonable amount on eating out while also being able to maintain their living expenses?

    I agree. $100 dollars in groceries lasts me longer than even eating at McDonald for a week. Th meals are cheap at McDonald's but they're empty, fill up for a couple of hrs n be hungry again for shitty food or cook something n not be starving an hr later? I've done both and I can tell you cooking a meal is cheaper and lasts longer overall. If u want to pay extra for crappy nutrition just to avoid dishes that's on you. And if u can't find a job that pays more than 13 an hr then u need to get some skills of use. Otherwise u will never get anywhere in life.

    If your disease is fairly common with an established protocol, they can tell you that it would be fine to get treated by a closer oncologist.

    But if it is a type of cancer that's treatment is undergoing any significant change, they would know the latest research and have more access to some of the newest treatments via trials.

    And everyone's cancer is different. If your cancer is different enough to require a non-standard treatment they are more likely to discover this and know about the non-standard options.

    A for-profit chain operation will likely have a bigger advertising budget and be less scrupulous in the claims of success rates and claims of top level expertise. Don't fall for their hype.

    But if it is a type of cancer that's treatment is undergoing any significant change, they would know the latest research and have more access to some of the newest treatments via trials.

    And everyone's cancer is different. If your cancer is different enough to require a non-standard treatment they are more likely to discover this and know about the non-standard options.

    A for-profit chain operation will likely have a bigger advertising budget and be less scrupulous in the claims of success rates and claims of top level expertise. Don't fall for their hype.

    I have a friend who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. His markers were over 300. He did exactly what OP suggests. After 11 months, his markets are 26. He’s beating this death sentence with trial medications.
