"For new car owners whose MyFord Touch systems crash, both Ford dealerships and Ford-sponsored websites have been recommending that owners disconnect the black (negative) lead to the battery for several minutes, reconnect, then run the car for at least five minutes to reboot the MyFord Touch system. Owners have complained that this is extremely inconvenient, even dangerous in many situations, and should not be required of owners who have paid tens-of-thousands of dollars for their new cars."

What do you think is the currently a bigger threat to legitimate science:

Thank you for your time.
And right there your argument, such as it was, falls apart. There are no "various levels of privacy." This is one:
Is Saturday really the right time to be asking on the Web for helpful advise from people who have already foregone the Internet except at work?
As some one whose career has pretty closely paralleled the "popularization" of geek culture (and perhaps benefited from it), how do you feel on the subject?
There seems to be a strong divide amongst nerds about public acceptance of larger swaths of what are traditionally "outcast" culture, and not a little bit of backlash against it (a'la Patton Oswalt). As a nerd who can't help but benefit from the continuing popularization (and, perhaps bastardization) of nerd culture, what are your insights?
No, but I am going to complain if I end up with an elephant ass.
I don't want three blind men describing an elephant incorrectly. I want Civ.
There's a rather old-timey solution to this problem. I, too, was tried of wearing holes in my pockets from the numerous keys I had to carry around. Get yourself a leather key wallet. It is a wallet sized object with a set of key holders inside. You can store your keys in a relatively small area, and no more tearing up your pockets. Some of them even include change purses.
If you can shoot through one end of it, I'm pretty sure they can shoot through the other end of it.
