I ( Jeff Relf ) am in Seattle, Late 2020.   [ Mail@"Jeff-Relf."Me  !555 206.900.9444 ]

  The squatters around here aren't -all- bad.

  Sure, they rob us blind, make huge messes, 
  destroy property willy-nilly, 
  like raging toddlers...

    ...but, like Joe Biden himself, and the NBA,
    they'll kiss your ass for a dime.

  Even Seattle's (tyrannical) lockdowns
  aren't -all- bad.

  Sure, Seattle is hell-bent on destroying every
  small business, including my livelihood,
  because we're not part of its union/mob...

  Sure, the latest lockdowns are beating
  a dead horse, desecrating the corpse
  ( in the name of "science" )...

    ...but, like the MSM and the NBA,
    it's killing itself first and foremost.

  People need more space (distancing);
  so they move to the suburbs, or farther.

  Single-Family Home prices are soaring because
  people can’t tolerate housemates anymore.

  Shared Housing in Seattle is worth nothing now,
  given the eviction moratoriums, drug abuse,
  squatting, property damage, violence, theft,
  Covid-19 fears, and general lawlessness.

  10 or 20 years from now,
  the pendulum will swing the other way.

  Working in the Swiss patent office, 1905,
  Einstein was uniquely qualified to develop accurate,
  atomic, Earth-orbiting clocks; the lasers used in
  atomic clocks are " Bose-Einstein condensates ".

  Satyendra Nath Bose;
  Born Jan 1894, Calcutta, British India.
  Died Feb 1974, aged 80, Calcutta.

  Only general/special relativity is accurate enough
  for orbiting atomic clocks; Tesla's/Newton's physics
  were/are extremely useful, but not accurate enough.

  Who's physics, who's faith, is "right"
  depends on the job at hand.

  Einstein's faith was necessary to create
  the GPS system, 38 years after his death, 1993.

  Tesla's faith was -wildly- different; but
  necessary to bring electricity to homes.

  Einstein appreciated Tesla;
  Like many today, Tesla despised Einstein
  for being "wrong".

  Despite the wild contradictions, both were "right".

  Randomness is indistinguishable from ignorance.

  Like Einstein, the principal founder of quantum mechanics,
  I assume that randomness is, in fact, ignorance.

  This assumption, this "faith", benefits Einstein and me
  because, unlike YouTubers,  we prefer EuScience over SciFi,
  Zen Buddhism over fame-n-fortune.

  The theory of everything, including humans:

    A refrigerator has programming.
    An acorn has programming.
    A car has programming.

    Everything from a photon to 
    a black hole has programming.

    "God" (nature) programmed us to 
    consume residual "eXergy" ( energy that 
    can do "work", force * distance ) 
    as the cosmos goes from infinitely
    hot/dense to infinitely cold/sparse.

    "Randomness" is ignorance, not entropy;
    The future is just as fixed as the past;
    i.e. "God" (nature) is static, forever 
    and always.

    Life is, at once, everything yet nothing.

  My modifications to Quantum Firefox 77 itself, and the pages it displays.
  My SearchBar  My Mouse/Keyboard Layout ( "%LocalAppData%\LGHUB\Settings.jSon" ).
  My playList when reading/writing/programming.
  I wrote my own diff routines ScreenShot.  Help/Settings:  My custom C++ console+client .
  My posts to Usenet ( since Feb 2012 ).
  HTML or C++, I ignore erroneous warnings/errors; C++ Coding Rules,
  Visual Studio 2019 macros, C#, Win10 Registry Settings.

  Re: Usenet:

  UTF-8, not US ASCII, has been the standard for decades now.
  Mozilla Thunderbird is the gold standard for newsreaders;
  but 99.999 % of people can't configure it properly.

  Most people can't write the CSS, nor the JavaScript,
  required to make it super nice.

  Unless you enjoy -Random- lags ( when will your post show up ? ),
  Do NOT use a binary server to read Usenet.
  For that, use INN servers; to wit:
  
    News5.Open-News-Network.ORG:119
    News2.Open-News-Network.ORG:119
    News6.Open-News-Network.ORG:119
            News.Individual.NET:119
  
    "OpenNews" is cost free; warning: these servers are SLOW.
    Register at:  Open-News-Network.ORG/register
                  Must translate from German; if Captcha fails, F5 refresh.

    "Individual.NET" is 10 Euros per year;
    warning: its archive is heavily censored.

  Do NOT post using Individual.NET, it'll censor you;
  instead, use a binary server; to wit:
  
    News.US.Usenet-News.NET:119  or  usNews.BlockNews.NET:119 
  
    They won't censor you; they don't even keep the "Path:" line,
    so you can't be identified.  Their archive is over 18 years deep.
    $5 buys you 11 gigs, enough for several life times.
    If one is down ( -very- unlikely ), use the other one.

  GoogleChrome users can't do this (below).
  How YouTube looks to me ( on FireFox 77, Developer Edition, Win10 ):

  "Jeff-Relf.Me/SearchBar.PNG" shows how my AddressBar/SearchBar text
  (UpperLeft) stands out, larger than elsewhere;
  the DropDown, UpperLeft, lists the "Search Methods" I use.
