I would trust friend A's word that friend B was who they said they were. I would not trust GloboHomoXYZCorp.

Or you will use certificate pinning if you don't. But that's not always easy to implement.

Suck.

Today, some *** and her child, flying out of a isle at top speed, ran into someone with her overflowing cart, didnt even say anything just hit out of the way ( in effect ) and ran.

Another woman, went to the 'prepack cut meat' area, where they put those 1 pound bags of popular meats and cheeses. Instead of standing in line, she was grabbing random handfuls of meat and cheese, at least 20 pounds before i pushed her out of the way and got my little 1 pound of chicken.   Great, you want lots of meat, go stand in line, dont take the 'quick grab' and empty it..

In 20 miles on way home:
  • Guy slightly in front of me in other lane about got t-boned from a guy that ran a light that had NOT just turned. ( id have been collateral damage due to speed and direction as the other guy would have spun into me if he had been hit )
  • Few miles more, guy got tired of a slow semi, and drove on the sidewalk to get around him.
  • Then a car sticking out of a house.. ( several police.. etc )
  • 2 more red lights ran..
  • A go cart.. driving down the middle of state road 135 ( major state road around here. 4+ lanes )
  • oh and a school bus that smelled like pot...
Far worse than normal.

Same here. I don't have bullet points - but there were a ton of morons on the road today. Almost got hit in the parking lot - and predicted the guy was going to do it before he did, so I had already started evasive maneuvers when he attempted to. 


He pulled up next to me once we got out on the street, wouldn't look at me, his girlfriend looked over at me for just an instant and quickly rolled her eyes in a total, "OMG, I know... he is an idiot!" way. I *saw* her yelling at him as I swerved around him.

You can sort of just go shopping to find that one CA in the world who

is most exploitable. It's happened before.

SSL at this point is like a cheap bicycle lock. It will deter crimes of opportunity but a determined professional will have no trouble getting past it.

If they were on the road then they should have put on their seat belts; maybe they'd still be in their cars.

My daughter was freaking out tonight because she almost got her limbs ripped off in an accident. That is literally how she described witnessing someone else having an accident from hundreds of feet away. That girl needs some reality adjustments.

Really, that goes for any 'security system'.

If they really want your stuff, they will get it.  The key is to make it more trouble for the casual thief then the house/car/phone/pocket/etc next door, so they move on to it instead of you.  "Deterrent, not preventative"

Absolutely. This is a problem I see with a lot of security professionals... Overconfidence and hubris. 

There is someone better than you - the only reason they're not messing with you is because you're not interesting to them. 

If you were that good - you would *be* that person - not yourself.

Did you tell them that, or just leave?

I don't mind being asked to wear a mask as long as they do it politely. My college age son has a part time job at a pharmacy where masks are mandatory because they are "health care", and he always treats the customers respectfully ("no entrada sin mascara, por favor" -- most of the people not wearing masks are not wearing citizenship either).

On the other hand, when I go into a bagel shop and begin my order and am interrupted by "YOU NEED TO WEAR A MASK", my reply is "I need to get my breakfast somewhere they're polite" and walk away.

It was not polite.

If it was, id just have said 'i pass' and left.
