I initially read that was "My UK twin was ordered from a store," which would be an interesting way of going about having twins...

My city uses a website/app called See Click Fix as a way for citizens to report issues to the city, like potholes, broken streetlights, graffiti, and the like. I've used it a few times and it's a really convenient way to report non-urgent issues. Anything anyone reports via that site is visible to the public, and since I've used it before by default it sends me an email notification when someone reports an issue in my general neighborhood. Some of the things other people report are, IMO, completely petty non-issues. For example today someone reported two trailers parked by the curb in two separate locations as "obstruction in street". They're no more of an obstruction than a parked car would be. These are wide streets with ample room for parking on both sides. It would be perfectly legal to park a car there, and AFIK it's no less legal to park a trailer there. For that matter I've seen people report parked cars as "abandoned vehicles" when they pretty clearly belong to the residents of the house they're parked in front of but just haven't been driven in a few days. It seems like whoever's making these reports really wants HOA type rules in a non-HOA neighborhood.

This isn't a First World Problem, just a thank you to Kirk and Crocoduck for helping me out. It's a small thing, but hey, the world could benefit from more acts of kindness, even if their small ones.

I don't know how I feel about another season, even an abbreviated one, because again, the recent episode would make a good conclusion as is, and I'm not sure that I want to see them struggle to stretch things out for thirteen more episodes.

If you're wondering, I had pretty much dropped out of Agents after Season One, because Skye was such a goddanged Mary Sue that it was actually painful to see her onscreen. I don't know if she could achieve the level of the fictional character hatred I have for Mohinder Suresh or Sasuke Uchiha*, but she was rising through the ranks and I didn't want to put up with more.

Then they lured me back with Ghost Rider. Still haven't seen any of the seasons in between season one and Ghost Rider--though I have a general idea as to what happened--but at some point, the show stopped being the All-Skye Spectacular and became the kind of ensemble show I had been expecting when I tuned in, in the first place.

*For those wondering, Sasuke Uchiha is at number one on my hated fictional characters list. I don't know if there will ever be anyone who will surpass him.

I think that's true of a lot of people. Especially those who want others to obey the HOA type rules, while they do as they please.

I posted a comment in a thread on another forum but the mods decided it was off topic and removed it. What's annoying me and is also a FWP is they didn't remove any of the comments people made quoting me and expanding on what I said. Not a serious problem of course but an irritating one!
