I appreciate all the answers. ElectricCPR CountValentine and David R

What are you trying to switch the coaxial cables with? The big connector has a hex nut. Rotate it counterclockwise (as viewed when facing it from the right of the photo) to unscrew it, then pull it out.

What safety issue are you concerned about?

The blue wire in your photo appears to be cut, in which case it is not doing anything.
I'm swapping the two circled coaxial cables.

I wanted to make sure that there's no dangerous electricity involved.

I'm trying to switch the coaxial cables circled in red (it's cable internet). How do I unplug the big connector?

 Any safety precautions that I should know of? Should I put on silicone grease when connecting the cables?

The green circle is a wire that looks like a ground wire or something its hooked on to a metal bolt.

I don't know what the blue wire is. Might be a regular telephone line.

Bad advice, pay $10 and get traffic
Also in my limited experience if it's not connected to the internet the route calculation time takes forever. And the address lookup isn't great either.

I remind myself of this song whenever there's a blackout

It's always handy to have an abundance of candles ready for blackouts too :)

Also, happens to me about once a week. 90% of the time I toggle on/off airplane mode, otherwise restart my phone. But i need verizon and this is by far the best (cheapest) way to get unlimited.
I just saw this. Good to know I'm not alone

Got this. Hopefully it's good.
I didn't secure it to the ground. Hopefully it survives the storm coming in now. I totally disregarded/forgot about that.

Otherwise, from what I hear from my nieces and nephews it seems to be a decent trampoline.

Around which year/decade did ATM's/debit cards start being a common thing (asking about the Brooklyn NY area but can be anywhere)?

The best spaghetti
Now it's the best macaroni :)
Although the cheese definitely doesnt melt as well as by spaghetti

Can't tell how it tastes from the picture.  ;)
It's just ketchup and Muenster cheese. The hard part is getting the right balance. I've tried a few times but it never come out as well as when my mother makes it.

What are some options to do with money that you don't think you'll need in the immediate future but would like access to it if need be?

I did a quick check on Google and it seems like there are savings accounts for roughly 1% a year. I didnt look if there are any penalties or stuff like that. Any other options?

Also are there any tax ramifications with having money sit in a bank account?

Oh, it's the same guy? I thought the name sounded familiar. He's the one who puts up posters in the shuls each week?
I'm pretty sure
