probably mean looking attorneys. and what does it matter? it's gone as many of us guessed it would be.
So it's better that we don't know?
The difference is that I'm the type who wants to know why something happens, when it shouldn't happen, and I can't close my eyes to what can't be explained.

training them to know how jurors think.
the jury hits on connect and mturk pay better than real life ones - I think the pay was $25/day the only time I did one. In OH firefighters were automatically exempt b/c of essential work

life has a funny way of not telling us everything. we couldn't handle it. if you can't handle what happens on mturk, well, i understand there are plenty of jobs still in the job market if you don't have one. maybe it's just the ghost in the machine that has us haunted. just the ghost in the machine.

there's plenty of randomness in life. I've had plenty of kids die in my arms on the FD over the 30 years. There is no good reason for an 8 year kid to die from some freak occurrence. Like a brother said, society doesn't pay us enough to put kids in body bags. Humans try to look for patterns or reasons when a lot of times there just isn't any
There's an excellent book on randomness by Nassim Taleb. https://www.amazon.com/Fooled-Randomness-Hidden-Markets-Incerto/dp/1400067936?hvadid=312165853622&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=7502368322205048146&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9014396&hvtargid=pla-432994518689&psc=1&adgrpid=60258872297&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvadid=312165853622&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=7502368322205048146&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9014396&hvtargid=pla-432994518689&linkCode=ll1&tag=hub067-20&linkId=eb6dffa0fd1ea8210a5db099451d4a5e&language=en_US&ref_=as_li_ss_tl

power went out - it's back on now. I really wish it would stop snowing already. Picked up daughter (no one is out shopping today, too much snow - and the power went out up at her market, too - anyway). She said she'd do the last shoveling later today.

Does anyone know why I have to do a captcha every damn time I sign into paypal these days? Is it because I routinely switch between my chromebook and my (pixel) phone?

This is done to minimize the risk of a hacker doing password guessing based on social engineering.
Just a guess but 2FA might minimize the captcha but I'm not sure.
