  1. Gaddamned illegals! We need a wall on that border!
  2. I'll bet the accident happened as the bike was changing lanes. Imagine you are in the right lane, following a car moving slower than you like. So you move over to the left lane to pass. Are you prepared to deal with a stationary car in the left lane? There was a dashcam video on Reddit some time back of this situation. Some moron was stopped in the middle lane of 3 lanes of heavy traffic, changing his tire! A car in the right lane moved left to pass slower traffic and plowed into the stopped car, missing the tire-changing moron by inches. The traffic was probably moving 65+ mph, and the lane-changer could not see the stationary car up ahead until he moved into the lane.

  4. I want to scream every time I see someone bringing that up wrt autonomous cars. 1. How many times have you had to choose between with of two targets to hit while driving? How many people you know have ever had to make such a decision? 2. How would an autonomous car know how many potential victims there are in each of the potential targets? 3. Why would an autonomous car not just use its brakes, instead of swerving? In summary, it is a fictional dilemma for autonomous cars. Common sense would dictate the car would first use braking to avoid a collision, and opt to swerve only if there was insufficient distance for braking AND an open path to steer into.
  5. Trumpty should be thrilled that Ukraine has opened an investigation. Ukraine Investigates Reports of Surveillance of Marie Yovanovitch https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/16/world/europe/ukraine-yovanovitch-investigation.html

  8. Omigawd. Anyone too ignorant to even be able to point to Australia, is too ignorant to vote.
  9. Who pays for roads? https://uspirg.org/reports/usp/who-pays-roads · Gas taxes and other fees paid by drivers now cover less than half of road construction and maintenance costs nationally – down from more than 70 percent in the 1960s – with the balance coming chiefly from income, sales and property taxes and other levies on general taxpayers. · General taxpayers at all levels of government now subsidize highway construction and maintenance to the tune of $69 billion per year – an amount exceeding the expenditure of general tax funds to support transit, bicycling, walking and passenger rail combined. · Regardless of how much they drive, the average American household bears an annual financial burden of more than $1,100 in taxes and indirect costs from driving – over and above any gas taxes or other fees they pay that are connected with driving.
  10. Speaking of "ignore", everyone does realize there is now an Ignore List feature on here, right?
