Ultimate Endurance. Every team gets a spec AI driver, race lasts until only one car is left running.

The Devil is a Part-Timer! If you’re in the US, it’s on Netflix until the 29th. After that I don’t know, but it was initially on Funimation and Hulu so it might go back there.

The idea was tried before, with the Japanese Ise-class hybrid battleship/carrier conversion. They were never tested in combat due to pilot and plane shortages, but they were actually built (and then sunk by the Allies).

The Germans planned them, the Japanese actually built them. The two Ise-class battleships became hybrid carriers later in the war, though due to pilot and plane shortages they never used planes in combat, and both were sunk.

I’m all for anything that expands MLS. I’m sitting between the Union and Crew watching all these other cities get franchises/talk about getting franchises and wondering if I’ll live to see one here that I can attend.

No, actually. Our satellite rural areas complain about the relatively high cost of similar goods in Pittsburgh vs where they are, but they don’t really complain about state money going to Pittsburgh. I think deep down they know their towns would be nothing without the city.

I’m going to guess that it’s because you’re closer to Harrisburg. It’s a trek for us to get there, but you’re much closer (and have hourly train service, even).

‘Scooter’ is apropos. The US DOT defines a scooter as a motorcycle with floorboards or integrated footrests and a step-through architecture (See 49 CFR 571.123). So if this was made and sold here, the DOT would classify it as a scooter.

A Singapore Airlines 777 and Air India 787 were also in the immediate vicinity at the time of the shootdown, and the report mentions 160 other flights of various nationalities and airlines crossed the airspace that day.

Why spend a shit-ton to federalize foreign trucks when a Colorado is similar enough without the federalizing costs and the servicing costs of a completely-foreign-to-the-US vehicle?

The Coast Guard is a branch of the armed services and has regularly been called upon to serve well away from US territorial waters. Coast Guard ships participated in both the Atlantic and Pacific in WWII, the rivers of Vietnam, and the Persian Gulf to enforce Iraqi sanctions. This is a continuation of that, using some Read more

Beyond what WanderingWheels posted, there’s also two tubes, hinged on opposite sides; the front one is open in this photo, and you can see both open in the diagram. Front/back hinging would interfere with the other tube, necessitating them being more spaced out, and on a submarine packaging is pretty darn important.

It’s a question of how different something can be and still be considered part of that group. We have birds that don’t fly, birds that fly a lot, monogamous birds, polyamorous birds, birds missing feathers on their heads, birds that do this and that, but one thing all of them do is lay eggs. If a new species evolves Read more

I don’t think that’s a “problem” that can be “solved”. They have to nest somewhere, unless they evolve live births to fully-fledged chicks. At that point, I’d argue they’re no longer birds.

Seems to be too late to edit, so it looks like my Friday brainfart is part of recorded history now.
