The Whole Fucking Neighborhood With ADT

Filed under: Finance,House,News,tech — sara @ 1:57 am

At the end of most of the driveways in my neighborhood, you will find the little blue and white ADT sign on a stake by the mailbox, indicating that home is protected by an ADT Alarm System. We have never had a serious crime occur anywhere with blocks of my house, knock on wood. But I think a large part of that is because we are an older, established neighborhood and we all take precautions to protect our homes and possessions.

I’m sure every one of my asshole neighbors locks their doors and windows at night. Most park their vehicles inside their garage, and have enough fucking floodlights mounted on the corners of their houses to light up the whole block. When I first moved in, I had a lot of shit to learn about home alarms and I asked around with my neighbors to see which company they were using. Most of them use ADT Security Systems, as I could tell from the signs at the end of their driveways. With this many blue and white signs throughout the whole fucking neighborhood, it’s a silent testament to the effectiveness and trust placed in ADT. And I’m sure it is a good warning to the criminals looking for an easy as shit place to break in, that these homes are protected and not as easy as they might find someplace else.

Good Ass News By Phone

Filed under: Finance,issues,Medical,News,TV — sara @ 3:35 am

Last week’s front page has a story about the guy in Santa Cruz, CA who just won $39 fucking million in the lottery. It’s a great rags to riches story – he was working three jobs just trying to keep his head above water and now he is one of the richest people in America. The Santa Cruz Market is the store that will get $140,000 for selling the winning ticket. That’s nice for spreading the wealth around!

Today’s headline is that a former lottery winner was just killed and that this isn’t the first time that someone that has come into money through the fucking lottery and has died shortly after receiving the money. I didn’t realize that until I was looking a bit closer at the story and some of the links that I ended up clicking on. Pretty fucking disturbing.

I’ve heard that many states have lotteries now that people living close enough to the state line can play 3 or 4 different state lotteries at the same time. That’s a lot of fucking numbers to keep up with. There is even a cool as shit way to find out the winning numbers by having the lottery numbers sent right to your cell phone. You just pay a small monthly subscription and you get text messages sent to your phone. That’s the kind of good ass news that I would like to get by phone!
