I’m sure a lot of us want this to be a new Renault Clio V6, but I’d rather see a modern take on the Ferrari/Dino GT4:

Pretty sure that’s a Lambo Buell dude.

Correct. The operator is mistaking something called ‘auto pilot’ for something that automatically pilots the car.

I mean, that’s a lofty goal, but it is a combined goal for two separate vehicles, one of which will be much more in line with every day crossover shoppers and not just niche offroaders. Add in pent up demand for a Wrangler competitor and I think they could do it.

I don’t think it’s that deep, she’s trying to defend her client any way she can.

How DO you specify altitude on the moon? You can’t really say “X feet/meters above sea level” when there is no sea to have a level.

Cheering a person’s death is something liberals, conservatives and everyone in between are known to enjoy. Most of them wouldn’t even call it “darkness”.

They didn’t almost unanimously call it an assassination like they Read more

There is a non-zero possibility Iranian air defenses took it down too. They were suspiciously quick to announce the aircraft succumbed to ‘technical problems’, when it catastrophically broke up, became engulfed in flames, and there’s nothing beyond fragments.

While that was my first inclination, Tehran is rather far from any border with US assets. There were also quite a lot of allies on board. Also it was a Ukrainian plane. Read more

If I were a betting man, I’d say the Iranian military incompetently fired an antiaircraft missile from a battery protecting Tehran airport; the plane crashed right after Iran began their “response” by firing rockets at Iraq and the defensive batteries everywhere in Iran probably were/are on high alert.

I think the problem isn’t just ‘needing a computer’. If I remember right, it’s like dealer only diagnostic tools with cars. It’s that it has to be a Deere authorized mechanic with a proprietary set of hardware that they won’t sell you, and you can’t just use any old laptop.

Yeah, here’s a quote from one of the earlier Read more
