But this does answer, and it answers with "Hello? Hello? Hello?!?!" if that doesn't get you transferred to a live agent, the dialer is a failure.
These days a lot of autodialers ARE failures. If you actually answer it, about half the time it either hangs up on you or there is nothing there but silence and you eventually get tired of saying "hello" and hang up.
And not to forget you need an automatic transmission for that.
Not necessarily. BMW makes a dual clutch manual transmission with an automatic clutch. You can use the paddles, you can use the bump shifter. It has no torque convertor. It WILL roll backwards on a steep hill.
I would have rather had a full manual with stick shift, but we are a two car family and we occasionally have to swap cars. My wife will not learn standard. Sigh.
Because Republucans are lazy, and typically the only people that can afford such things.
Actually, it is mostly nouveau rich lottery winners, flash-in-the-pan musicians, actors, and reality TV stars that tend to buy supercars, and most of them are usually democrats.
But back to the original false statement. Republicans are lazy so they like to buy cars that don't drive themselves? Um, what?
no windmills glued on the plane please
What do you think those big things under the wings are? When the throttle is at idle, they're being pushed around by the airflow from forward momentum.
A plane travelling at 500 miles per hour, at an altitude of 40,000 feet, has to lose a huge amount of both kinetic and gravitational potential energy before it's stationary on the runway. If you can capture 1% of this, then you can taxi around the airport for quite an extended period.
A number of airlines are now also powering the flight systems from the ground when connected to the terminal, so that they're not burning expensive avgas to generate electricity.
I have to admit that when I first read the headline, my mind processed it as
Exploitable Backhoe Accidentally...
I figured that some nitwit had decided that large construction machinery needed to be part of the Internet of Things, and that the expected outcome had come to pass.
Getting the job done is no excuse for not following the rules. Corollary: Following the rules will not get the job done.
