I used to be a computer expert, but too much time has passed.

I accept cookies, my main defense is to not go there. There may be other parts of the Web I avoid lately. Cookies can't help against cross-site scripting. Browser extnesion can help there:

This browser extension -- for Safari and Chrome -- stops Facebook social plugins (including those within iFrames) from running on sites other than Facebook itself. This includes 'Like' buttons, 'Recommended' lists, and should also stop any Facebook scripts from tracking your browsing history
I should probably install that, but Facebook isn't the only bad actor out there.

edit: FB Blocker 404s.

The cab/trailer gap is interesting. It allow for flat turns but what happens when the trailer wheels hop a curb?

Good question. However even more so: bottom of a ramp. We dont know if the production ends are flexible or if this was an inexperienced oops. If they are flexible, why have a gap at all?
