Distracted By Non-Market Events Today

As you all know, I am selling my house. Today I was informed, just matter of factly, that a new NJ law dictates that ALL fire detectors in the house must be of the 10yr lithium battery varietal — something I had no idea was a thing. This means, in order to execute the sale of my fucking home, I will need to sashay over to Home Depot — buy 20 of these fuckers, and spend the next 100 hours installing them around my house.

Frankly, I understand the reason for this — since fire alarms run low on batteries and next thing you know — you’re crisped to a fucking cinder. But come on — fuck off with this shit already. My Grandparents used to put lit candles on their Christmas trees. No one gave a shit back then and if you had a little fire — it wasn’t a big deal. Sometimes the whole block would burn down, even the city, just because someone fell asleep in the bed with a lit cigarette. People died, firemen were called to sweep the charred remains of idiots into dustbins and jogged on.

Aside from that, everything is fucking awesome. I had my water heater replaced in the winter and it didn’t get inspected. So now I have to get it inspected. What sort of shit is this?

Stock market wise: buy LK and live happily ever after.

More later.

    How many houses do you personally know of that burned down? I know of maybe 3 in my whole life & I’m old af. Insurance: concept:: valid; implementation = scam

    When I call a municipal dis-service; I have to hit 2; to continue in English. FU.

    I’d continue, but I’ve done sufficient damage to my social credit score for today.

      btw, Jack paid his houses off and ‘self-insured’ for fire insurance.
      None ever burned down.

    Consider the benefit of waking up and getting out alive. Btw the all wood house I am leasing is 4,200 feet from a fire hydrant.

    You’re going to love NC. We don’t mandate that you do a damn thing. (Except Cary, which is like a giant HOA run by yankees)
