I sure hope it can, because a snow plow is going to destroy those pretty glass panels.
People are terrible drivers. Yes, there are exceptions, but in general humans aren't good at it. It's become too easy to drive, with too many distractions and too many safety features.
I think we need to go down path A or B.
A) Make it really difficult to get a driver's license, and have severe penalties for distracted driving (texting, drinking, etc...). This will never happen in the US.
B) Give up, and continue to let anybody with a pulse operate a car. If that's the case, we need to do everything possible to get them out from behind the wheel, including relaxed requirements for autonomous vehicle operators. Insurance still needs to be mandatory (and I would consider allowing a "no insurance, no motion" interlock on the car.
Sac has a terrible reputation in California. It's always been the laughingstock of the area; like a bigger Fresno or Merced. I stayed for a few days a few years ago, and was *frequently* asked by locals, "why are you *here*?".
Oakland, on the other hand is 1/2 the price of SF and a 20 minute subway ride away.
Are you fucking kidding? Our infrastructure is close to third world status. We can't even fill the potholes, but we'll toss around the idea of solar powered glow in the dark bullshit?
New car headlights are better than ever. They are simply fantastic. Reflective paint on the side of the road is simple, cheap and works well.
Let's solve the real problems first, and teach people to pay attention when they drive.
You can sue anybody you like. For any reason. You may not win, and you may even have a hard time finding an attorney to take the case, but you can sue.
Did your kid sign a waiver to light the fireworks?
You can sign anything, but you cannot sign away the rights of youth. If a kid gets hurt after a parent signs a waiver, it's meaningless. Even for adults a waiver isn't really a valid document, and at best it shows a jury that the adult knew the risks.
This certainly isn't the only maker space that allows kids. This article is so unrelated to slashdot, I can only assume that the person who approved it has a vested interest in this particular space.
Was the cop serious?
"Let police officers take care of it." Uh, yeah, we'll be right on that.
I can only dream of living in a city where the crime rate is low enough that cops will bother to talk to you about you stolen phone.
For just under $2,500 you can buy a MB Replicator 2 or a Type A Series 1; both are decent quality, consumer ready 3D printers.
Both of them excel at slowly making 25 cent plastic parts in a number of hours for about a dime. There is no legit use for the consumer yet. It's still "look mom, I can print plastic spider I just downloaded from Thingiverse!"
Sure, there's designers, engineers and artists that use them. But for the average guy at home? No way.
They just got one, but they've had it 3 years?
A top of the line 3D printer for "a few thousand"?
You have too many axis in you 19 axis magical wood carver, and not enough zeros on the end of the price of the printer. Neither of the objects you speak of actually exist.
My bible history is sketchy at best; I'm not surprised I got some "facts" wrong.
So, Adam was the first human.
Eve was made from Adam's rib?
There are now two humans on the planet.
They had sons, who went out and got married.
Where did those women come from? How could the women be anything other than their own sisters - or at best, the daughter of their own brother and sister. Fucking creepy.
The bible does not disagree with reality.
Let's start with talking snakes.
An apple filled with knowledge.
Everybody is related to Adam and Eve, and completely inbred.
Two of every animal fit into a single boat, and none of them ate each other.
All the animals are inbred, back to the ark.
The bible does not disagree with reality.
I wish I could mod you up.
As a landlord, I dislike rent control enough that I won't be a landlord in a rent controlled area.
The city enforces how much the rent can go up, but can't enforce how much property taxes go up. The city won't cover my losses when rent goes down of course. It's a one way street. I keep my places clean, and things in good order. I make repairs, with a licensed contractor, quickly. I have given people a break on many occasions (late rent, giving young renters without a credit history a chance to *start* a rent & credit history, etc).
My wife was a HUGE supporter of rent control, until we bought a house and she began to understand how much money it costs to keep a house in good condition, and how often the city or state raises some random tax on home owners.
I'm thinking of a cloud backup for my music. Cheap, and I don't really care if they know I like The Clash.
Not so sure I'd want to store everything else there.
I think that's the whole point; he doesn't have the original media.
Do you think it was "lost in a fire" or "washed away in a flood"?
The Whole Foods fanatics don't come to my door and tell me I'm going to hell.
The Whole Foods fanatics don't vote to discriminate against people different from them.
The Whole Foods fanatics aren't trying to change how text books are written.
The Whole Foods fanatics aren't trying to own the government.
The Whole Foods fanatics aren't claiming a "war on organic food".
The Whole Foods folks may be full of shit and misguided, but for the most part, they keep it to themselves. Just like a good Christian should.
