The specific reason Drew can’t consume ethanol probably has something to do with the fact that it thins the blood and is contraindicated for anyone with a history of spontaneous bleeds (like aneurysm). But the other effects of ethanol use are more physically taxing than the effects of THC use too.

Peach skin is bitter, whereas kiwi skin is tasteless. I still eat the peach skin, but I make sure that I eat it first. When I started eating kiwis with the skin, my family loooked at me like I was eating boiled eggs without peeling them, but peeling kiwis is a hassle and I eat way more of them now.

If you are a multivehicle household, that’s fine. In a single vehicle household, being appropriate for 90% of use cases isn’t good enough unless you factor in the cost of regular vehicle rental and the hassle of that rental, and still decide it’s fine. My next car will be a cheap used EV, not even a good EV like a Read more

I find that to be a likely theory but I don’t know that it’s been proven with sufficient vigor. After all, why would they not quarried the smaller stones from the large stone that was never removed from the quarry, if the temple was built in one phase?

We know where the blocks at the temple of Jupiter were quarried, there is even another larger block that never left the quarry, either because construction was abandoned for a time and the people who picked it back up lost the technology needed to move the blocks, or because they couldn't move one quite that large.

13, as it happens, yes. His mother was born in August of 86, he was born in June of 2000 and graduated high school as a 17 year old. No skipped or missed grades, just one of the oldest girls in my class mothering a child who ended up being one of the youngest in his.   The father wasn't our age, I think he did some Read more

I was born in 87. I don’t have a college aged child yet, but the oldest child of one of my high school classmates is a sophomore at the University of Minnesota, and there are Millenials that are 5 years older than me. Gen Xers are now 38-57. Millenials (Gen Y)are now up to 38. Read more

Most Millenials remember these.   It's the Zoomers that won't.   Some of us millennials have children in college now.

The cost issue isn’t a production part price issue but rather a development and certification cost issue.

See, I think most of these scooter rides replace denser transit use like bus rides, not private vehicle use or uber use.  This is the pattern that seems to dominate every ____-sharing service or app.

I suspect that these scooters mostly replace foot traffic and denser transit options like bus rides and train rides, not car trips.

What I find suspect is the idea that these scooters are replacing privately owned car trip with scooter rides instead of replacing bus ridership, walking, or light rail use. And compared to buses, trains, or mk 1 foot transport, building, maintaining, and servicing these scooters is absolutely a greater pollution and Read more
