    [–] Cash-strapped Chicago gets $11 million interest-free loan, thanks to 22,000 uncashed checks dating back 22 years MaxPaynesRxDrugPlan 3 points ago in chicago

    Yep, be sure to check every state you've lived in. I've found nothing for myself but stuff for dozens of friends and family on their behalf. (You can only claim stuff using personal identifying details like SSN, of course.)

    There are still tens of millions of Cantonese speakers on the mainland though, right?

    [–] Clark on the move MaxPaynesRxDrugPlan 1 points ago in redpandas

    Chicago misses you, Clark!

    [–] JARDIN DE PLANTES Paris MaxPaynesRxDrugPlan 1 points ago * (lasted edited 9 days ago) in redpandas

    Fun fact: it was the head keeper of this zoo who gave red pandas their scientific name: Ailurus fulgens (shining cat). He called them the most beautiful animal he had ever seen.

    [–] Spotted near my work... MaxPaynesRxDrugPlan 3 points ago in pics

    I believe you're thinking of Mercedes, not Tesla.

    [–] Hot dog 😂 MaxPaynesRxDrugPlan 3 points ago in funny

    As a Chicagoan, I'll assume it's neon green Chicago-style relish.

    [–] It's Dave Matthews Day! MaxPaynesRxDrugPlan 3 points ago in chicago

    Not sure if it's legit, but I remember this forum post claiming to be an account from someone working on the boat:

    [–] Proposed ban on buying Chinese buses, rail cars could curtail job growth at Southeast Side factory MaxPaynesRxDrugPlan 12 points ago in chicago

    Also, automation has eliminated the lion's share of manufacturing jobs. U.S. manufacturing output is actually at or near an all-time high, but manufacturing jobs have steadily declined.

    [–] Inverted Flying. Alaska Airlines Flight 261 [16:47] MaxPaynesRxDrugPlan 2 points ago in mealtimevideos

    I don't know...even if you exclude the various hijackings over the years (especially the 9/11 hijackings), you've still got stuff like Aloha Airlines Flight 243 and Aeroflot Flight 593.

    [–] Chance The Snapper Rescue Cost The City $33,649, Records Show MaxPaynesRxDrugPlan 2 points ago in chicago

    I was thinking the same thing. I saw national news stories about it all over the place. $33k couldn't buy that kind of exposure.

    [–] new phone = new phone case MaxPaynesRxDrugPlan 2 points ago in redpandas

    Pity they printed it backwards /s :D

    [–] Gamers of reddit, what game first blew you away? MaxPaynesRxDrugPlan 2 points ago * (lasted edited 23 days ago) in AskReddit

    The original Command & Conquer (Tiberian Dawn). I played it at a cousin's house as a kid, and was blown away by the fact that you could create as many soldiers as you wanted and order them around like an army. It started my lasting love of RTS games.

    RIP the old Redwood Studios and C&C games.

    [–] Cheap doctor? MaxPaynesRxDrugPlan 5 points ago in chicago

    Yep, Blue Cross/Blue Shield sent me a flyer awhile back that illustrated the typical costs like this:

    Your Doctor: $

    Retail Clinics: $

    Immediate/Urgent Care: $$$$

    Emergency Room: $$$$$$

    [–] Pritzker signs bill preventing employers from asking applicants about salary history MaxPaynesRxDrugPlan 12 points ago in chicago

    The first amendment doesn't grant rights to specific people, it restricts the government from creating laws that limit those rights:

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
