Yeah sorry to read that Brenden. It always sucks to lose a pet. At least you know he had a happy life and were able to make some memories.

Found out the last video store around here is closing in September. I didn't go there often but alot of people did. At least they're only closing because there retiring and aren't being forced to close.
I understand why noone would want to pick up a business like that. But it still sucks for nostalgia if nothing else.

Please come fuck me is not a message I send. Go on a date with me is my consistent M.O., even though it hasn't once worked out well.

To wit, on topic: I've heard through a mutual friend that the guy I've been seeing for a couple months now got a job in New York, so preparing for when next we meet to be not fun for me.

Back into the crushing loneliness.

All of this is a lie. I don’t know if I can ever trust again.

Well its back off again. And this time for no reason at all. Not even raining. And the website says the estimated time to come back on wont be til 11 pm Wednesday night. I kid you not.

The fucked up thing Is we have only ONE electric company around here. So they have a monopoly. Its not like i can just say peco sucks let me get another company. Even if i wanted solar panel's they'd still be rented from me TO peco. There's one other company that offers "green" electric but low and behold they go through peco. The fact they can do this just blows my mind. Its so fucked up. And they clearly know what they are doing and just dont care.

I tried calling but i can only get an automated messanger.

They know we can't do shit about it. Why do they care if we have electric or not. Fucking scumbags.

Fuck i almost want to just fully move to a gas or propane generator.

They all have a monopoy..

Power transmission is a natural monopoly. It doesn't make sense to have multiple competing companies stringing power lines all over the place and duplicating the infrastructure. That's why countries in Europe have one single company, either highly regulated or outright owned by the state, that deals with transmission, while other, usually private, companies deal with generation. Then, you can allow consumers to choose who they buy generated electricity from, and they have a choice amongst all the companies supplying to the grid. And one company that specialises in distribution and maintaining the grid, and does it really well.

I was pointing out a fact, but it is interesting to hear how other countries work.

I was just adding information and explanation to the fact. Also, you seemed to say the fact as if it ought not to be so, when as far as transmission is concerned it can’t really not be so.

I find it weird that it seems common to only have one electric company. Every other county in this area has multiple options. Except for my county.

Everyone around here finds it weird WE only have one option. I was working with a guy before and he acted like i was lying when i explained it Peco or no electric. No exception.

I guess cause we were the first in America with electricity so the government covered most of the cost? Idk. .
Just know that there are multiple electric companies available in this area. Just not to my county at all.

You go to Philly and have probably 5 different companies to choose from. Trenton has just as much. But being sandwiched between the two only gives us the one option.

Definitely always interesting to hear how things work in different places in the world.

I find it hard to wade through the sheer
Volume of energy providers I have available, all comes off the same grid mind, so competition means I can get a good deal, but problems with the grid are problems with the grid. Always stuck with that.

I couldnt imagine only having one choice of energy provider!

I took too long to cook hamburger I took out of the freezer and had to throw it away. I don’t like wasting food, but spoiled meat is spoiled meat. :pfft:
