Is the current statewide beer shortage retaliation by liquor distributors?

...and does 6-point make your pee glow under black light?  Things we want to know.

I donít share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

DETROIT Ė Given that the best way to store your car keys at night is by putting them in a coffee can, what's an ex-FBI agent's advice to protect cars from theft during the day?  Wrap car fobs in aluminum foil.
https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/nation-now/2018/07/08/wrap-car-key-fob-foil/762338002/

The story implies that thieves can copy the radio signal coming from your car key fob, but doesnt mention that the signal is only transmitted when you manually push the buttons on the fob.
Nor does it mention that a coffee can with an open (or plastic) top doesnt really block radio signals.

As for putting credit cards in foil sleeves, that went out when credit cards went to chips.

Modern car keys, however, have RFIDs that work like a pet microchip where you can send it a radio signal and it will answer back with an ID number, but the range is inches and without the physical key to open the door, pretty useless.

Geek out.

Of course, the OTHER anti-theft device is something called a manual transmission.

Have seen pics of signs on cars with that.  One of the kids put it on her drivers window, too.
