        Actually I just recalled an article I saw not that long ago that uses data to rank gridlock in Texas. In 2020 I35 through Austin displaced Houston’s I10 as the most congested road in the state. However Houston still had most of the rest of the top 10 with a few from Dallas mixed in.

        Houston traffic is insane. A 25 minute drive in light traffic takes an hour in rush hour.

        because of their recent track record. Though i will be impressed if it is a technical marvel like the hd800, despite wonky tonality.

      USPS sucks. Priority mail is now like 5-7 days. Gov't should bankroll FedEx and UPS instead.

        USPS is broken. Especially here in Chicago. 50% of time package will be marked as delivered, but not show up for a couple days or never. We have a Ring that records movement, so we know that the packages aren't getting stolen by passerbyes.

        USPS was great where I am up until the cuts last spring. I’ve also had bad experiences with throwing/breaking packages from FedEx and DHL. Fewest bad experiences with UPS, but also seems to be most expensive.

        Each looks younger than his age, but not so much that I find it striking. P.M. Netanyahu has very good genes, and he has benefitted from the most rigorous physical training his country offers. Pres. Biden has never been a smoker or a drinker, and he's never been a risk-taker.

        Gonna go out on a limb: from measurements and from hearing the IE 500, I predict the tonal balance of these will sound really wonky. IE 500 had missing upper mids-lower treble and high mid-treble; it looks like these have the same hole in the upper mids followed by a sharp rise into an overcooked lower treble.

        I never gave much thought to the WHO before covid. Just assumed they were one of those organisations doing good work in the world. Now unsure. Are they? Or are they politicised toadies? Are they really in China's pocket?

        Maybe the answer is yes, yes. And yes. :/

        Who cares? They wear expensive suits and they like power. Some rulers blamed sparrows. Some princes put enemies on poles. Some kings liked the Spanish Inquisition. Mock them until they cry or take advantage. Until then survive...

    Ears validate the measurements, not the other way. Well, sometimes the measurements keep us honest.
