Putting in a roundabout uses a lot more space for intersections that rarely have more than 2 cars meet. It also is a lot more costly than just adding 4 signs.

Uh, you do realize that, in situations like that in Europe, they just paint a circle on the road and put up roundabout signs, right?

Comment Re:What is happening with the SJW stuff? (Score 1, Insightful) 744

The SJWs noticed they could make a lot of money working for a startup that has a crappy website and some VC funding, so they started getting jobs in the tech world. They didn't need to actually be able to do anything, because those VCs only cared that the company existed long enough to get an IPO. A company that pays a lot and lets them surf the web all day is ideal for an SJW.

But, yes, Poettering seems to pretty much follow all the rules of the SJW-ism, even if I haven't seen him out protesting with them. And systemd is a bloated, centralized bureaucracy imposed on the population because the Great Leader says so. Just like Communism.

There are plenty of programmers who can spew out hundreds of lines of crap code in a day.

The problem is that others then have to spend years fixing it.

It's even worse when you let the code-spewers actually design the system, because you'll never be allowed to go back and redo things right.

Somebody ought to cross ball point pens with coat hangers so that the pens will multiply instead of disappear.
