To this day, males 18+ must register. Those who do not cannot receive Federal financial aid, nor work as a GS or contract employee for the Fed.
Did it do a 4G inverted dive?
I invented the "One Click" wheel.
Pfft. I invented the wheel with round corners.
You do know the US has "Stop and Identify" laws which require you to talk to police? For example, in Texas
"A person commits an offense if he intentionally refuses to give his name, residence address, or date of birth to a peace officer who has lawfully arrested the person and requested the information."
It's a class C misdemeanor.
These laws have been challenged, and SCOTUS ruled that they don't violate miranda rights.
Passively cooled PCs are very underpowered compared to their actively cooled counterparts. If you want to use your PC for anything like gaming, compiling, or stuff like that, you're going to need active cooling.
But record numbers of truckers have very little experience.
What? Are you just saying that there are more truck drivers than there used to be?
So what? Lots of things are harder than other things, that's not an excuse for doing them wrong
Someone has to drive trucks, and driving trucks well is difficult. If you make only expert truck drivers allowed to drive, then you'll have a whole host of goods undelivered. Sometimes you've got to use what you've got.
The biggest problem truck drivers have on the road, besides the ones that are just a danger to themselves and others all the time, is lack of sleep.
Well, I'm from the EU, which has mandatory time limits on HGV driving and working. You can't work more than 48 hours a week as a driver, on average (the actual legislation is that you can't work more than 56 hours in a week, and no more than 96 hours in a fortnight, IIRC). If you're tired with that week, it's your fault.
I used to drive a route, Bury St Edmunds, Kettering, Winchester, then back to Bury St Edmunds every day (along with London on thursdays). It was in a big artic. At the first stop, I was unloaded and reloaded (with tyres), at the second I changed trailers. 340 miles every day, and I was always within tacho law. (for Americans, drivers in the EU are strictly regulated on the hours they can work(
I don't know what you're suggesting as a replacement for this kind of system.
The warehouse in Bury st Edmunds is just a big room with about 10 people (total, including night shift) loading and unloading trucks all day long. I am talking about the largest wholesaler of tyres in the UK here.
Fucking hell drinkpoo, get a grip. People who drive for a living generally are better at it, and driving a truck is harder than driving a car.
The only problems truck drivers have on the road are vehicles other than trucks (99.9% of the time). Making it an "us vs them" issue is simplistic and childish.
You didn't reply to the AC's post. They were not incidents, they were potential incidents. If a trucker had an incident every 100,000 miles, they would not be a trucker for long.
I'm not excusing bad driving, there's loads of that about. However, your estimation that truckers generally have more than one incident every 100,000 miles on average is wrong.
As a truck driver, I think your 99% is a little high. Train drivers, for example, do not have to deal with almost all the situational problems that truck drivers do, and their profession is only just starting to become autonomous, and only in a few limited cases.
I agree it is probably the future of cargo transport... but if we're using automated cargo transport, I think we could come up with a better solution than just big automaton trucks on the road.
Not sure if serious... 3049 hours, so more than a third of a year. And yes, it's not impressive compared to locked down systems that do the same thing every day.
Heh, little do you two know I'm sat behind a Linux firewall. My Windows system is impenetrable here!
Anyone can appreciate the speed boost (and silence!) an SSD brings, not just enthusiasts.
If the noisiest thing in your computer is your hard drive, something is wrong. Case, CPU and GPU fans are way noisier than a modern HD.
Homes without roads would be relatively difficult to sell in the US, wouldn't they?
You can get higher resolution 27" monitors relatively cheap, or at least cheaper than you probably bought your decade old monitor. If you can't bear to move your head, might I suggest you sit further away from your monitor?
