Comment: Seems like a false choice. Hit both. Seriously. (Score 1) 800

This doesn't really make sense to me. What scenario would you have an exclusive OR situation like this?

I would think trying to hit both would be the best way to dissipate the energy less violently, thereby increasing survivability. This is assuming none of the traffic is oncoming.

I wouldn't say it's a silly analogy. The fact of the matter is, the far majority of automatic transmissions in new cars these days are still using a torque converter, and really don't compare in anyway to a manual transmission.

As for the 95% of people who can't shift fast enough, that's why 95% of cars are sold as automatics.
I don't think its a question of skill anyway, I think its a question of willingness of the driver to improve their skills.

+ - Delta gives iPads to pilots as EFB replacements->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Delta Airlines has begun testing Apple’s iPad as electronic flight bags (EFB). EFBs help reduce paper by digitizing on-board flight information that has typically been printed out. This includes reference material such as operating manuals and navigational charts. Moreover, EFBs also enable pilots to automate calculations that would typically be done by hand and access up-to-date weather information.

Delta senior VP of flight operations Steve Dickson explained that the carrier had already deployed 22 iPads for in-flight testing."

This is the single most offensive thing I have ever heard come out of MY public school system. I am ashamed, not only that this is happening in my country, but that this is occurring in my home province, and near my home town.

What detritus, and to think it's coming out of the people who teach our kids.

I can not explain how much this upsets me. Shameful.
