    [–] Oil surges 24% for best day on record after Trump tells CNBC Saudis, Russia reach agreement Reverend_James 43 points ago in investing

    I'll believe SA and Russia have some sort of agreement when one of them says its true. I've learned to not trust what Donald "coronavirus is a liberal hoax" Trump says.

    [–] Authorities remove almost a million N95 masks and other supplies from alleged hoarder | ABC News Reverend_James 1 points ago in videos

    The only bit of government overreach I see here is charging him with lying to officers. And I only consider that overreach because federal courts have ruled that cops are allowed to lie to you and I just think its hypocritical for them to say "we can lie to you, but it's a crime for you to lie to us". Charge him with reckless endangerment though, I'd be fine with that.

    [–] TIL that Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago with a population of 3 000, is the only visa-free zone in the world meaning that anybody may live and work there indefinitely regardless of country of citizenship. Reverend_James 40 points ago in todayilearned

    I imagine behaving like a gorilla is exactly what you should do for black bears. Stand up tall, shout, raise and flail your hands, beat your chest, grab whatever your hands land on and casually but violently yeet it in a random direction.

    Black bears are smart. Even if they know they could take you... why would it risk it? "I could fight this largish, loud, violent, creature and probably only suffer a couple bruises. Or, on the other paw, I could not fight it and go eat some berries."

    I wouldn't try that with any other kind of bear though.

    [–] AirBnB is about to crash the US housing market. Thousands of super-hosts who bought 10,20,30 properties with mortgages and are heavily levered... are about to default. Without travel there is no rental income to pay there mortgages. In 2-3 months - 2008 all over again Boom Reverend_James 16 points ago in investing

    Its not just Airbnb though. That one time $1200 might won't do much for the estimated 30% of Americans who are recently unemployed. We are about to see a whole bunch of people suddenly unable to pay their mortgages, and a bunch more unable to pay rent (which will cause even more landlords to default on their mortgaged properties). I would be pleasantly surprised if this somehow isn't far worse than 2008.

    [–] Some Companies Don't Need a Bailout Reverend_James 3 points ago in AdviceAnimals

    Also Tokyo is riddled with crime. But it tends to be smaller types of crimes that are harder to prove and thus goes unreported because everybody there knows that the police won't let something go to trial unless they have a solid case. You don't get a 99.8% conviction rate by charging everyone who might deserve it because, you know, lawyers are a thing.

    An old man with talent, and a lemon tree. Looks like we got everything we need for a lemon party.

    [–] 'Dictatorships often start in the face of a threat': UN privacy chief warns against long-lasting theft of freedoms amid coronavirus surveillance Reverend_James 8 points ago in worldnews

    If the revolution can organize itself it might end in some sort of elected leadership. It worked many times before, just look at the French revolution or all the revolutions overthrowing the British.

    I love one click delivery. Now all it takes is just one click to start the rube goldberg machine of suffering.
