Trump, Poltics, Polls
From that same wikipedia article there is this table showing state advantages, with a net Democrat count in the right column. I've modified it by highlighting the Dem advantage numbers during Obama's and Trump's presidency.
Note how the Dems had a huge advantage the year of Obama's election, which then declined into negative numbers during Obama's tenure. But has been going the other way since Trump has been in office.
Here's the same phone NIB on Ebay for $25.

If I do mod this thing, what should I do? I do have an actual use case for it, no mods, as a telephone.
Here's a cheap auction find.
I'm trying to decide if I should use it as-is (I still have a land line because cell doesn't work out here) or mod it with a #raspi or something similar.
If I do mod it I'll likely destroy any collectable value. But I don't care about that much unless it's worth oodles.

Why in the fuck is Northrop Grumman paying Twitter to show me videos about military drones?
I'll admit I've been making an effort to mess with Twitter's data collection and targeting algorithms, but I have absolutely no idea how it could have manifested like this. Clearly:
1. Twitters ad-targeting algorithms are seriously buggy
2. Northrop Grumman is wasting money
