What is with this reaction of Americans to the French/Latin word "libre"?
I dunno. I kinda liked the bit about going down to Morganville with an onion tied to his belt.
Well, you're new around here, and probably a kid (judging by your UID), but I can assure you, that was the fashion at the time.
179 responses, and this is the best Monty Python reference we can get? Not a single mention of skipping and jumping or pressing wildflowers.
Slashdot is truly dying.
Here you go..
It's worth trying a tankful and seeing how your car performs.
duckduckgo for "real gasoline" or "pure gasoline" and you will find stations in your state that sell gasoline without ethanol.
I recently started using ddg as well as google since google tailors the results and profiles me and sometimes I want to see a raw search result. (My other option would be to go to the library and use google there). The creepy bit is that their profile works whether I'm logged in or not.
The headline was supposed to read "Dark Side of the Moon", but Floyd
threatened to sue; Far Side has a far weaker legal team, it appears...
CAP = 'paralyze'
Gary Larson disagrees.
Do I look all rancid and clotted? You look at me, Jack. Eh? Look, eh? And I drink a lot of water, you know. I'm what you might call a water man, Jack - that's what I am. And I can swear to you, my boy, swear to you, that there's nothing wrong with my bodily fluids. Not a thing, Jackie.
I consider a vote for a Greenie or a Libbie a vote for "none of the above". When it comes to a state's Governor, he can screw that state up all by himself. Illinois was in good shape under Thompson and Edgar and went to hell under Ryan and Blago. A vote for someone who thinks government is always the problem and never the solution is a vote for a failed government.
I have had a 265mile per tank vs 300 mile per tank difference between 10% ethanol vs 0% ethanol on three occasions. I've never gotten 300 miles per tank on 10% ethanol.
So -- for a 2010 Honda Element, my experience is the same as yours.
I am not used to shareholders able to foresee what can happen beyond 3 minutes.
And yeah, it's odd, but I can't think of any other explanation.
I ask because we just had this tax passed last year for implementation this year. I thought our brand of insanity was unique. Guess not.
But crack their wrists when they abuse their power and fewer will abuse their power.
Take over or break up companies that get "too big" and they amazingly will manage to exist right under the "too big" line and constantly lobby / use lawyers to find way to get bigger.
Unfettered corporate power is turning the U.S. into an oligarchy. This ends badly for a long time for many citizens and then finally ends badly for the oligarchs too. It's not a good path to head down.
When incompetence is pitted against extreme radicalism, I'll take incompetence any day. As bad as Quinn is, he's head and shoulders above Blago or Ryan. However, the Republican would have to be pretty bad, one I would fear would really screw the country up (anyone named "Bush" would do it). In likelihood I'll vote Greenie or Libbie, depending on their candidates.
Not just Kubrick but damned near every other science fiction writer. Hell, Asimov had antique cars that were not only self-driving but sentient, six years from now.
But a few hundred years from now? I don't think ion drives driven by two fusion generators is out of line for that timeline. By then there will be technologies we can't even dream of today.
I did make a huge math error by not actually doing the math and I'm not sure how I'll fix it. Someone pointed out that you could get to Mars' orbit on the other side of the sun in three days at
For the last several years my Easter routine has been a three day celebration. On Good Friday I find somewhere to have Walleye for lunch, which isn't hard. Most places have it every Friday. Friday nights I like to find a bunch of Christians (not hard, most bars are filled with Christians) and get drunk with them on the blood of the lamb.
