    [–] JUST PURCHASED THE MAVIC AIR TangoMike22 2 points ago in dji

    Probably not, since they're not really tablets, but E readers with extra features. If you have one already, try downloading the app to it. If it's cost, you can buy a new Tablet for under $100, so there's no reason not to.

    [–] Found this in my backyard, assuming from a lawn game but seemed kind of small for that. TangoMike22 2 points ago in whatisthisthing

    How many times has the been said about people who ended up being murderers or rapists or whatever? You only know as much about your neighbors as they're willing to divulge.

    [–] Looking for a good impromptu trick. TangoMike22 4 points ago in Magic

    Sent you a PM. Just like to add that while this trick does require some preparation, it can be prepared ahead of time, just sitting in your pocket. This can then lead to other card tricks. You might have them out the card on top of the deck, you can shuffle it, hand it to them to shuffle, and it'll appear on the top of the deck again. Two tricks, one deck, even using the same card. And of course, they are free to examine the cards afterwards.

    I'd just like to say, I'm new to magic myself, and some of the stuff in the PM is simply my own take on this trick.

    [–] AITA for not letting my husband get a motorcycle? TangoMike22 1 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    NTA. It's not that you're not allowing him to have fun, and get the bike. It's that you have priorities. And you're actually willing to help him take the proper steps.

    [–] AITA: Parked in neighbors public street parking TangoMike22 0 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    ESH. On one hand, you have available off street parking. If you're just visiting, that's different, and you have just as much reason to park there as you do halfway down the block.

    On the other hand, it is public parking, so legally, you could park there every day and leave your off street parking unused. And the neighbor is a big asshole for one, saying that it's "his spot." And two, that note wasn't actually polite.

    TBH, I would try to avoid parking there if the neighbor asked politely. Now, if they acted like nobody is "allowed to" park there, then I would go out of my way to park there.

    [–] WIBTAH if I reported my neighbor to the city for having a terribly overgrown yard, even though she is elderly and can't take care of it herself? TangoMike22 1 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    YTA. Simply because, while it may violate a law, that looks like a normal yard. If something like that bothers you, then move somewhere where you won't have neighbors. Unless there's some dangerous animal living there that will run away of you get rid of some vegetation, there really isn't a problem.

    Until I looked at the picture, I was going to side with you and say:

    Sure could do it herself. Or she could ask some neighbors for help. Or ask some family. Or pay someone.

    She owns a house, and along with that comes responsibility, which includes following municipal laws. Laws don't stop applying to you once you hit a certain age.

    [–] JUST PURCHASED THE MAVIC AIR TangoMike22 2 points ago in dji

    Get a tablet. Doesn't need to be fancy, or expensive. Even spending $100 will be fine, since you only need it for the bigger screen.

    [–] DJI drone owners, I need your help (Legitimate checking an accessory) TangoMike22 2 points ago in dji

    They're not made by DJI, they're made by a third party. The company probably made way to many, and sold them cheap to try to recover some money back. In short, same product, but not officially sold by DJI.

    Not like it matters. It's a bag from the dollar store, if lasts 2 months, you've got your money's worth.

    [–] Mavic Air owners, what would you like to see in Mavic Air 2? TangoMike22 2 points ago in dji

    • The Mavic Air can already transfer files to the phone wirelessly. Both photo, and video. Of course video takes a bit of time, but I don't think there's any way to avoid it.

    • Night stability. That may be because the current MA uses cameras to see below it and be stable. In the cameras don't work so well in the dark. A similar problem is drones landing in water, because the cameras don't see the water, they either see through it, or they see the reflection of the sky, and as a result, they don't know the water is there. I've seen similar issues flying a drone over hockey rink with the white paint under fresh ice. Again, I don't think anything can be done about it. Using only GPS leaves room for error.

    • I do agree with the rate of descent. At least keep it normal in normal mode, and increase it in sport mode, or put it in some other settings.

    [–] Availability of Osmo mobile 3 at Apple TangoMike22 1 points ago in dji

    I noticed that it's $99USD. That comes to about $130 CAD. I think they wanted a lower price point for us Canadians, but the store only uses US dollars, so it was just easier to lower the price for us. Computer knows we're in Canada, so it automatically shows us the different price.

    [–] Australian drone pilot fined AUD$7750 for flying illegally TangoMike22 1 points ago in dji

    Charged with flying within 30 meters of people and his neighbors....

    His neighbors aren't people?

    [–] What supplies or items should every household have in case of a large-scale emergency? TangoMike22 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Yup. Real simple solution. Of course that requires knowing when you won't have water, which is often the case of a blackout affecting the water pump stations

    [–] What supplies or items should every household have in case of a large-scale emergency? TangoMike22 2 points ago in AskReddit

    I disagree on the "proper" first aid kit. You should have what you know how to use, otherwise it's a waste of money, and space. You could have a whole hospital at your disposal, but that won't help if you don't know what to do.

    I would say to take a first aid course, purchase basic first aid kit, and add in stuff based on what you know how to do.

    [–] AITA for telling my tinder date that’s she’s overweight and looks nothing like her photos? TangoMike22 1 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    NTA. First off, if you're not physically attracted to someone (regardless of what you do, or do not like) then that's a good reason to not be in a relationship.

    Second, she manipulated photos, and chose other photos to hide that she was fat. Even if you are physically attracted to her, I would still consider that a red flag for future behavior. It's not like she had different colour hair, or something. She took the effort to hide herself, so what's stopping her from lying about other stuff?

    [–] Welp 🙃😂🤣 TangoMike22 1 points ago in KitchenConfidential

    Yup. I've done it a lot. Let it cool for 10-15 minutes. Drain into plastic bucket, take it out and dump. If the oil is still warm, then use a second bucket for the next trip, and let the first one cool down.

    [–] Toby playing video games at Jim's party (spotted on my 3rd watchthrough) TangoMike22 1 points ago in DunderMifflin

    Different platforms. At home, it's console, in the office, it's PC using keyboard and mouse. That just means it's different controls, which harder to get used to going from one platform to another (thanks Sony for keeping the controller pretty much the same.) There is evidence that he doesn't know the controls, such as blowing himself up, and not knowing how to turn around.

    The other confusion shown is that he didn't know what team he was one. He said he was killing Germans, when it turns he is on the German team. This could be understandable in a FPS because someone else would have set the teams up, and he wouldn't be able to see his own uniform. Especially if he's used to playing the "Good Guys"

    Well if you look carefully, Jim is wearing a shirt. I think that's the Easter egg.
