We have a Toyota RAV4 with the keyless technology, and it's worked pretty well, but there was one night when I tried to start it while a train was passing about 200 feet away. There must have been some pretty good RFI from the train, because the car would not start until the train was gone. So, I'm wondering if we could find ourselves in a situation in which solar flares or some new use of radio by the military might suddenly render all the motor vehicles inoperable. (It's not like this kind of thing hasn't happened before.) Then, too, there's the problem that these keys seem to be notoriously easy to hack.
The main reason we need marriage to have legal standing is to simplify
I'm gonna let you think about that for a while.
Good point, but the lack of a marriage certificate doesn't simplify splitting up.
It would not. The compartment is not being used for drugs. That seems to be what everyone is glazing over.
TFA quoted, but did not link to, an article by WKYC which mentions that the police detected a strong odor of marijuana, which led them to the closer investigation revealing the secret compartment. Still, this seems like a case worthy of appeal. I am suspicious of laws based on intent, as intent is hard to prove.
If you have a problem navigating at a cycling pace, you have more serious issues.
It can be pretty serious, all right. My last crash happened when the pack came to a fork in the road and the guys in the front hadn't been paying attention to the route sheet. FWIW, though, in my cycling club, we print out an easily-readable list of turns and mileages, which riders clip to the handlebar or brake cable, and this has generally worked pretty well for the 30 years I've been riding with bike clubs. And when I'm mapping out a route for myself in unfamiliar territory, I write a similar route sheet.
One potential problem with the Hammerhead is that bicyclists sometimes ride in places where there is no cell phone service. I've tried using Google Maps on occasion (while stopped on the side of the road), and the map information simply isn't there. The Garmin solutions are far better than the phone.
The gift to my kid would be for me to get the test, never tell a soul about it, and make plans to deal with Alzheimer's if I'm going to get it.
