Q: is there a telephone number workaround for, say, facebook or google account?
is it possible to set up an account without providing a number? they ask you to input one so they can send you a text confirmation so they will know who you are. funk dat.
Q: do they still sell burners (disposable, anonymous cellphones)?

I was able to create a FB account with email verification. Same for Google. You should be able too.

You have the option to skip that and choose email. My FB account does not have a phone associated to it.
just tried it. get to this page:

Add a Mobile Number
We'll send you a text with a code to confirm the number belongs to you.

Why do so many people hate on Amazon so much?
I’m making a 2-hour round-trip run to a book store today to buy books and curriculum so that I can buy local rather than give money to amazon. It will take me a lot more time and effort than buying amazon. I need to spend a lot so I’d rather make the effort to give that money to a mom-and-pop homeschool store, particularly with what our economy has been through. I do order things from amazon, but I do what I can to buy from small businesses as often as possible. They are on the way to having a monopoly and it will really make me sad when that occurs.

another reason to not like them:

gave 10 million to BLM

rioters smashed through the windows and looted one whole foods (owned by amazon) in dallas. :)

answering my own Q re: mozilla free vpns:

they work for about a 24 hour period and provide vpn protection for a set amount of data/mb/bandwidth (whatever it is).
if youre cheap and dont want to buy anything (like if you keep reinstalling malwarebytes when it expires every two weeks or so), then this is a decent option.

Same here. Wow but they do nag me for it! Actually I got off fb a couple months ago but when I was on, they were constantly bugging me for my phone number.

if someone is downloading a movie online and this person wants to save it, BUUUUUUT.... the movie is in a foreign language, how does a person save it with the CC (closed captioning english/ subtitles) left on? when this person goes to save it after leaving the english subs on, it plays without the english subs (or the capacity to turn on any subtitles).

@Helioform this is your department! answer this!!
