If high winds caused that, we're talking strong hurricane or tornado winds.

It probably occurred after August 2023 which is the latest streetview shot. It may also have been run over and put back up in the same place.

Are these people doing all the "I created this product" ads on TV really the inventors?

"Unavailable" as a simple adjective is pretty much the same meaning as "not available".

Except:

"unavailable in all areas" has a different connotation from "not available in all areas"

Never saw a sign like that in Oklahoma so I don't think it was high winds. My guess is that an oversize vehicle smacked it good, such that the post was left standing but the signs got crunched up good.

Considering how mangled the sign is, the signpost would have almost certainly come down if it was hit any lower. But the top of the sign being hit by the side view mirror on a large vehicle seems like a possibility.

The argument for wind or another force of nature is that it looks like all the panels folded in the exact same direction.

Pretty sure I broke my small toe on my left foot last night.  I've been pondering how to alter my workout routine for the next four weeks since I probably can't run.  I'll probably have to fire up my rower which involves buying a bunch of D batteries.

I might go for longer lifting sessions at the gym.  I'm bored with my current weight lifting routine and it probably is worth spending some dedicated time changing it up.

I remember fracturing my little finger years ago, and while it was healing in a cast, thinking "you don't really need your little finger for chinups, right?"

spoiler; yes, I do

(didn't re-injure, but realized chinups were still off the menu)

The worst was when I had broken ribs associated with getting hit by a car in 2010.  You don't realize how much all those muscles lining your rib cage are part of literally every exercise until they break.  Even my broken left arm was easier to compensate for.

"Unavailable" creates just a little FOMO and desirability. Like you'll drive five states out of your way for a bite, or look for the item on the gray market.
