We have to pitch in and help you. Not only because it's the right thing to do, but if these stories stopped coming for whatever reason, we'd be at a collective loss entertainment-wise.

That’s just really shitty implementation of a knee-jerk response. I used to run traffic, and firmly believe you can follow any vehicle, any, myself included, for a mile and generate at least the most thinly veiled probable cause for a stop and contact. Since so much of “impaired driving” is left up to the officers disc Read more

I was thinking about this as I danced with insomnia last night. I imagine the absolute hardest thing about these is breaking contact with the surface. I’ve never been on a sea plane, but I just feel like once you finally lose contact with the water, you’ll feel a power surge due to what has to be incredible hydraulic Read more

Fuck, the fuel draw on those 8 turbojets must be enormous. I wonder if we could get the same power from fewer turbofans of our modern designs?

You’re neglecting the existence of our modem, most premium word of all: "PRIME". Also, "choice".

Western Electric red bar and a Kellogg wall unit with the rural battery and generator setup. Enjoy your Google rabbit hole.

The strangest thing to me is the wheels were metal with a plastic body. Quite opposite of everybody else. Lego made all kinds of toys before focusing on bricks. That’s why you see old Lego bricks branded as Lego System. The building system was a supplement to their regular toy lines. You aren’t too old to play with Read more

Oh, this is going to be an unpopular opinion. I’m not saying it’s wrong, just unpopular. “CEOs are making all the money and front line employees can’t afford basic repairs because Big Auto and Big Parts conspire to oppress with their prices, something something, fuck Republicans and/or the rich.

If that were the case, the auto market as we all know it would be reduced to tricycles and Crocs.

If everyone one is missing something EXCEPT you, it’s quite reasonable to think it’s because YOU are the culprit. How is this not being investigated?

I think it’s also semantics. Calling him a “pedo guy” versus “pedophile” (or pædophile for the exotic among you) is the fly in the ointment here. “Pedo guy” leaves it open to our interpretation. Foot guy? Pedometer guy? Mistyped peso guy? If he had called him “pedophile” using the full word, this would never have gone Read more

This is very true. Always check for both, though. Sometimes domestic first will be 3× or better one economy fare, sometimes (rarely) less than 2× an economy. With algorithm and demand driven pricing, the computers can rapidly inflate prices.

I think it can, but it will have to be on highways with 100% autonomy and some sort of mesh network. Adding in a few manual driving assholes will muck up the whole thing.

California doesn't care about medical privacy, government overreach, or other such things? Color me truly surprised. All that aside, I do happen to agree that advanced age should carry different rules.
