Re: The Death of Europe

20 or so years ago, walking around London, passed a sign on the sidewalk. One of those A-frame type signs. It was alerting of a crime that occurred on this spot. Only saw one of those signs. Joked if they setup signs back home, they would be all over the place. Curious if that is still their practice.

Re: New IRA

Major banks offer variable annuities with caps on losses (10%, 20%, ...). Like insurance, the more protection the less return, The market is up 25% this year but an annuity also has caps on the gains. Not in one, in the market, so not sure what they would have paid this year.

One study highlighted the importance of capacity since 70 to 80% of the shots miss. Pack more 9MM in a double stack.

Re: IFTTT

Used it when it first came out. It has its pros and cons. For straight forward apps, it works fine. Set up one app to turn on the security cameras and alarms when it detected I left the house. That one worked sometimes but couldn't rely on it. I don't know if it was the GPS or the security app that ...

Re: The flood gates open

Yes, traveling outside the good ole USA, other countries are safer. They implement common sense solutions. For example, segregated parking. Women park in a safe area with extra security. Do feel homogeneous societies run into fewer conflicts.
