And you trust the cashier making $3 an hour after taxes not to be stealing your controlled substances?

So long as the bags are sealed in the pharmacy and the contents are not noted on the outside, it should be fine.

Where the hell are you shopping, where your scripts are divvied out by the teenager running the check-out lane???

I get my scripts from, you know, a pharmacist, who makes a hell of a lot more than $3/hr.

I said as much in my first post. that said, I don't think the tech has no application at all and especially resent the notion that 3d printing is a fad. It isn't a fad anymore then the automobile was a fad.

VR has a place. Its just not in the class room.

A lot of my generation are still jaded about the "VR" crap they tried to sell us in the 90's; Nintendo's Virtual Boy springs immediately to mind.

A rear spoiler on a front wheel drive car can help.

It's a wing, not a spoiler. And no, I don't care what Wikipedia says, I prefer to rely on the expertise of old guys who have been flying or racing cars, respectively, for the better part of a century.

In fairness, considering that the purpose of an aeronautical spoiler is to "reduce lift," I can see why the terms get confused.

Crap like this is why English is such a hard language to learn. /rant

"Is it street legal" is probably one of the last questions I would ask.

No, scratch that. I don't care if it's street legal. I just want to know if it's got two cup holders and decent sound system. And as a long-time Burnout Paradise player, I want to know how much boost it has and how well it drifts around turns.

Per TFA (or at least an FA, I've read about this from sources), it has a top speed of 40 mph. Unless they put it on intentionally skinny tires, a la the Subaru BR-Z, you're probably not going to be doing a whole lot of drifting.

As an analogous situation, imagine if the creation of (text)books was originally patented. The patent holder would then be able to ensure that any textbooks whose contents disagreed with him do not get published simply by denying a licence to the publisher for that book.

The rear metal-rimmed camera is not flush with the case, so ironically it's not the iPhone screen getting scratched, it's every surface you lay your new iPhone down on.

So, make sure you buy a stand so you don't accidentally set it on your gold-pressed latinum desk. Problem solved.

what makes Tesla the victim here?

The fact that the applicable law is idiotic.

Well, OK, but technically that makes everyone the victim, not just Tesla.

That does not mean they don't have to comply. They should prove that they did not sell more than 150 cars.

Agreed; and if it turns out that Tesla was in violation of the law, Musk should consider shutting his mouth for once. After paying the fines and apologizing, that is. Otherwise, I'd say GADA should be the folks eating crow.

In my state, if you sell more than 5-8 cars a year, you have to get a dealers' license. Doesn't matter if they're old, new, salvage, etc, you hit that number, you'd better have a license from the state to sell cars.

Do I agree with the law? No, I think it violates the concept of free enterprise.

Is it the law? Yes, and in that every single person, corporate or otherwise, is required to follow it.

Assuming TFS is accurate (a dangerous assumption to make, I know), it sounds like the situation is thus:

- Georgia says, "if you sell more than X cars in this state, you have to have a dealership."

- Tesla responds, "OK, we'll sell less than X, so we can avoid that requirement."

So far, everything seems cool.

- GADA says "we're pretty sure Tesla has sold more than X cars, thus would be in violation of the law"

- Georgia asks Tesla, "How many cars have you sold in this state this year?"

- Tesla is thus far mum on the topic.

Again, presuming that this is a fairly accurate depiction of the circumstances... what makes Tesla the victim here? The fact that a competitor is claiming that they may have broken the law?

Even with gang member murders subtracted, the chance of being killed is still much higher in the US.

With a gun? Citation, please.

Also, gang members with knives tend to accidentally stab innocent bystanders far less often then gang members with guns tend to shoot innocent bystanders.

And gang members with guns tend to accidentally shoot bystanders far less often than police officers with guns do. What's your point?

... the code of chivalry? So there are a few asshats who make things tough for women. Where are the guys who should be calling them out on this bad behavior?

Yeah, its an old and outdated concept. But its practically instinctive male behavior. Stepping up and confronting a threat to prove your machismo. Not necessarily violently, but I'd expect at least a few guys to step up and tell the dickheads to shut the f* up.

The very feminist you would ride to the rescue of would call you a misogynistic bastard for thinking she needed to be rescued.

Chivalry isn't dead, but the chivalrous among us know better than to waste time helping someone who's going to call us assholes for doing it.
