So my mom opened her car a little bit ago and found it mildly ransacked. Didn't take anything of value, but kind of messed it up inside and stole most of her loose change. WTF.

She'd locked it last night and was still locked, so prob happened sometime during the day yesterday when she left it unlocked for a bit.

Mine was untouched as I always leave it locked and I don't leave money in it or anything noticeably worth taking. But I don't doubt that they probably looked. Such a frigging violation to come that far in someone's driveway and during the day even.

Second time this has happened, don't think it was her car last time though, maybe my sisters. Makes me mad because this neighborhood was always just a safe, quite little neighborhood and for the most part still is, but no doubt its probably people connected to the house across the road and one over. We don't need that crap here, this isn't that kind of place, but that woman has been a renter for so damn long, attracting the wrong kind of people to be coming around here or living there off and on. Lots of fighting, drugs for sure, plenty of police visits over the years.. And of course our former neighbors who still own the place and rent it out don't give a damn. And we aren't the only ones who have complained. Told my mom we need to get a cheap security camera or something.

This happens all the time, replace Sonic with anything else; same story.

I hate being linked a depressive video because then I'm constantly being suggested other sad stories that I end up clicking on one and it can take a whole week of not clicking any of that type of video to get rid of it from my recommendations.


I'm not hating on the algorithm too much, I find more interesting videos on my recommended feed than my own subscriptions nowadays. But if you dare watch 5 of one type of videos then it can mess up your recommendations for the entire week.
YouTube seems to think that if we like a thing, we should become obsessed with it.


Would be terrible if this happened with stuff some people have bad addictions to. "Oh, you like gambling? I don't care if it was a weak moment and now you're going to stay away from it... Look! Here are 15 more casinos for you!!" (Granted I guess that could already happen via ads.)

Yeah...I once made the mistake of not using incognito mode while searching youtube for doorbell noises for a show I was working on.

So many doorbells.
