Out of the blue, a utility informed me they required an easement, and sent me a contract to sign.  (This easement would have been on a scrap of farmland in the middle of nowhere).

The offer in the contract was for service which they were already providing.  Since past consideration is not good consideration, I drew this to their attention, and suggested they might run their line elsewhere.  I then prepared myself for battle by reviewing the provincial statues on utility easements, land titles, and expropriations.

But to my surprise, the faceless bureaucrat that sent me the contract apparently doesn't know what "consideration" means.

Things sort of went downhill from there, with said bureaucrat demonstrating they had no clue in the domains of negotiation or persuasion (let alone property law), and me expressing my disinterest as tersely as possible.  (They didn't even think to offer me $1, not that that would have improved my mood.)

Anyway, I think the lesson I was supposed to learn is that the Authorities know what's Best for Everyone, so being Anti-Authoritarian is the same as being Anti-Social.

But can I be blamed if I'm not inclined to donate property rights to the benefit of some multi-millionaire (probably) who wants to build a country house?

P.S.
Apparently they can still run the line somewhere else, it will just cost them more.  I'm okay with that.

One of Rogerís many stalkers, no doubt.

I can think of smarter plays than "I'm going to sign up pretending to be a perma-banned persona from the largest social media website in the world", but then your stalkers have always been special.

I just admitted Eldora back to the board (someone tell LMNO), because it should be good for a few mean laughs.  If any mod/admin has reservations, feel free to re-ban her.  I was just hoping to offload some bile.

Also, Tentastical also tried to reg again, without really bothering to hide it much.  He got rebanned, because he's a stalking cunt and can't be trusted with nice things.  Or even not so nice things, like this joint.

Which is of course the worst forum on the internet, even after its death.

If that doesn't work out, maybe you could temp-unban RWHN ?  I haven't had anything to gnaw on around here in a while, and my canines have grown out to the point that people are starting to notice.

Why?  The silly bastard re-regs every 4 months or so.

Wait until you get a load of Eldora.  A real blast from the past.  By which I mean 2002-2005 or so.

Well, no.
It's just batshit that he keeps trying to get in. He's a haunt. Somebody needs to tell him to go into the light.

You could get the same thing from a bot that just spouts D.A.R.E crap. I think you'll like Eldora's desiccated hide better.

Arizona is taking its sweet old time counting votes.

The dems are leading in damn near everything, but usually by fractions of a percent, and there's still 30% of the votes to be counted.

Banned from Facebook again.

This time? The algorithms assuming I'm suicidal and when I refused help, they locked down my account. It's amazing I still have one at this point.
