I currently have one of these as a rental and your take is dead on and your complaint is not petty; it was one of the first irritating things I noticed about the car.
Butt-Head voice: “Whoa! That was cool! Huh-huh.”
Silo/Tank exiting Stage Right looks so incredibly movie fake. It will make me be less critical of CGI going forward.
Yes it shook my nerves and did rattle my brain!
The size of that explosion probably resulted in a lot of shaking goin’ on with the nearby windows.
Goodness gracious, what a great ball of fire.
In the DC area, it’s because the highways were all built and designed decades ago and were never intended to support the out of control, astronomically large population that is there now. There are simply way too many people and way too many cars, and no highway design is going to change any of that. And to top it…
Someone already did the hard work...
Right... at over 5,000lbs I can’t see four little servo motors adding any noticeable weight. Just put a knob in the interior and have it control all four corners, with +/- per-corner offsets in a settings menu.
Hillary wouldnt have halted our ever lasting love affair with foreign intervention but that headline is ludicrous. But looking at the author, it's not surprising. She'll keep her obsession with the clintons and jacking off to every bad piece of news about them until she dies
Japanese concentration camps -> Refugee concentration camps
Yes. And it’s too easy. Representative (and proud war criminal) Duncan Hunter was humble-bragging recently about killing hundreds of civilians in Fallujah with artillery.
I would hate this. Mostly because it means I'd have to live close to other people. I'd much rather live somewhere without neighbors even if it means I have to drive a little.
It may be cheap on OUR side, but what about the other side, especially their civilians? Does that photo in the header not move you?
It’s not dumb, it’s ruthlessly greedy. The Iraq War was not a mistake to the people that pocketed billions (trillions?) as a result of it.
This! Housing was like $60k less to live where we are. That said i went from living 10 min from work to now living a 45 min drive thanks to traffic. Construction is turning it into almost an hour and a half because the DOT is so incompetent. All this though so i could pay less for housing and almost double my salary.…
It’s because the layout for most modern cities is garbage. Sure, they’ve got the grid layout for streets that’s more space efficient. But that’s it. Especially in the U.S., there is no “corona” design where facilities are built within walking distance of housing. Live in a five story apartment building in the…
I say this as a former Army officer, but war is too cheap now. With drones, cruise missiles, and near impenetrable tanks, it’s just dollars down the hole. As Robert E. Lee said “It is well that war is so terrible, otherwise we should grow too fond of it.” We’ve made war cheap and cheapened lives in the end.
It would be so cool if we could actually learn from our past mistakes.
I don’t like to be portentous if it’s not called-for, but this is how it starts. Maniac waves sensitive documents around in the air. Journalists take pictures of sensitive document, publish results. Maniac has them jailed for “revealing” sensitive information.
