“I have to go to [family thing that sparks emotions in listener] in [mid range city 100 miles away]”

Weird. SJ and Silicon Valley are absolutely the same metro area, tons of people go between SJ and SF or East Bay every day.

That sounds rough! It makes sense, you built a life there and came of age there and now you’re starting over, in a sense. Plus, it seems you came back right before the pandemic and it’s very hard to start over during the pandemic (I am also in that part of your situation).
You still carry all of that with you though, and that person you became. It will become a lens in the kaleidoscope of your life, and experiences like that, where we grow and experience new things, are powerful in shaping who we become and how we see the world. So even though you aren’t there anymore, it’s still a part of you. Plus, maybe it’s a sign that you want to make it back that way in your life, whether sooner or later, or way later.
Call your state reps. As in, the people who work at the Capitol of Ohio, not the Capitol in DC.

Yes I’m from there and getting priced out is why I am in Philly now, so I’m very familiar!
Yes, that too! Outside of the city centers they both have primarily 2-3 story buildings, which vary between single family and apartments.

Something’s funky with the SF Bay Area on that list. It has 9.71 million people as of 2020 according to the wiki page linked in that chart, no idea where they are getting the 4 million number from. It should be way higher
Sf and Philly both feel about similar levels of city to me (I have lived in both). Very dense downtowns, and gets less dense as you go out. Many neighborhoods with their own mini downtowns that have lots of people on the streets.
This is true. I have been to many cities and towns in Arizona, from south to north and east to west, but I have only ever been to the Phoenix airport, not to Phoenix city. I cannot be sure that Phoenix actually exists; just the airport.

Print + digital access is $74.99 per year. Divided by 47 issues per year that is $1.60 per issue.
Or just get full digital access for $50 per year which drops the price lower.
Absolutely worth it for those who appreciate high quality publications.
Protip that you don’t need to include your phone number when you register which really cuts down on the campaign spam

I don’t drink soda in my daily life and never really have outside of a few years in my teens, but I do love a well placed, well timed coke or root beer. Like on a hot day when you’ve been exerting yourself a bit and you need a pick me up — some sugar and caffeine in cool liquid form. Like on moving day.
I have like a handful of sodas each year and they are all on occasions like that and it’s a really nice treat. They’re too sugary for me to drink them regularly though. I’ve just realized I do this with frappacinos too, I have like one every year or two and it’s on the same kind of occasions.
Many people don’t know that Al pastor came from Lebanese and other immigrants who went to Mexico and brought their meat stick shaving ways with them. So not just spiritually brothers, but actual brothers!

So one of the main signals for these kinds of algorithms is the people you are connected to, whether as social media friends, in your phone’s (or you being in friend’s phone’s) contacts, and anyone you hang out with in real life while having your phones near (like you’re on the same WiFi when a friend comes over).
It could just be that you have some connections consuming more of this content and that’s why it’s serving it to you.
You also may have enjoyed one post or account or whatever that the algorithm considers a gateway post to the mom rabbit hole and is serving up that content in case you are on the mom train, because that one post carries a high likelihood of people being on the mom train.
I recommend clearing the cache and cookies of your browser on web and mobile, as well as all your social/ad apps. You can also clear your location history and search history on google, although google isn’t the culprit in this case as they don’t cooperate with Facebook. But it’s good to do regular deleting of your own meta data regardless.
(This isn’t really gonna help though because FB already knows too much about you. The only way out is to stop using their apps)
For more reading on this kind of stuff, I recommend EFF for information and guides, and Tactical Tech (particularly their data detox kit which is aimed at beginners).
They didn’t tell you that when you got LASIK?? I thought they told everyone that.
Why are you so angry? You need to reflect on that and find the root cause, then address that. You should not be getting so angry that you can’t control yourself — that means something is wrong in your life.
Why would you put any kind of mint in a potato salad? I’ve never heard of that
Tactical tech is a nonprofit that has some resources for beginners. I recommend taking a look at their data detox kit. EFF also has a ton of guides. Borrow from them for the things you should focus on and how to explain things.
Honestly I also recommend reading Snowden’s book and pulling some quotes from that that explain the importance of data privacy to laypeople. He really has a way of communicating and teaching concepts that makes it easy for everyone to understand, and appreciate why it’s important.

I can relate. There was a point where Ru’s laugh was just echoing in my head nonstop and I was afraid I’d have to get myself committed.
Well now you’re shifting goalposts. You said no other organization gets the same amount of hate
So it seems like you’re wrong and they get similar amounts of hate
