The TSA does a weekly Proctology exam on me, I'm clean as a whistle thanks to our never ending fight against terrorists.
you don't need a zapper just a good old fashioned slingshot, a dog trained at catching frisbees or a shotgun all of which means that this will never work in Texas.
Old School Technology Rulz while you all with your new fangled infotainment system and ABS and TPS senors and electronic fuel injection will all be hitchhiking, I will be cruising along in my Jerry Garcia special...
Gas Tank right behind the engine waiting to explode.

And you all think the Carerra GT is dangerous...
Here's a more complete article from the NYT Here..
Don't tell Twilight fans that. You'll have all the little girls crying out there.
“We have a different perspective,” Mr. Li said. “We don’t want to think about ‘RoboCop’ or ‘Terminator,’ we prefer to think of a mash up ‘Batman,’ ‘Minority Report’ and R2-D2.”
I guess ultimately this product will be a whimsical vigilante that will seal you in a hole in the ground if it thinks you're going to spit on the sidewalk?
In Skeet/Trap shooting skills. Instead of clay pigeons it'll be Amazon drones.
I think you have to throw Stalin as well as the PRC in that mix as well. Our focus on using technology should be to enhance our lives not watch everything we're doing. As for wasting money, they also need to stop doing that as well. Frankly if congress would grow a backbone and de-fund 90% of this stuff we'd all be better off but because of the fear mongering won't happen soon because both parties in power love to have their constituents afraid.
Don't tell the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, the CIA and the Department of Defense that. Of course the NSA is part of that too. They have programs and payrolls to maintain. Just think of Terrorism as the new Beltway jobs program. Once the cold war ended, how else were we going to keep the DC economy going?
Don't believe me? Just look at home real estate prices over the past few years. While most of the nation suffered home price stagnation or depreciation, there was
one area of the country that didn't suffer nearly as bad as the rest of the nation, DC. While there was a net decline in overall Federal Employment all those other programs and deficit spending the Feds have put into place, Obamacare etc. have netted a housing price boom. Up 24% since 2009 while the rest of the nation is down 21% from 2007 highs. All those bureaucrats, NSA snoopers and lobbyists have to have a place to live.
I have had 6 and other than early Windows 8 driver issues, they've been rock solid.
Asus still makes some great laptops but I still miss 1200P res!
It's sad to hear a guy who's given us so much laughter be in such pain over his father's situation. We all have to deal with this at some point in our lives and as we get older we see more of our loved ones passing away, some suddenly while others have a long, slow road to the afterlife. Unfortunately because of the religious, moral and political boundaries this crosses society as a whole just isn't ready to take this discussion on. People should be allowed to choose how and when they leave their existence due to severe medical ailments. A mechanism should be in place to allow people to leave with dignity and in those situations where they are unable either physically or mentally to make that decision themselves, the families should be able to make that decision with proper oversight and checks. No child wants to see their parents suffer nor do friends and loved ones want to see somebody they care about in a terminal situation that has no benefits to the suffering individual but there needs to be an open dialog about the subject. I have the same problem now but it's a little different. I have a step mother in a nursing home and a father, 85, still living at home. He's mentally active and tough as nails but he refuses even basic senior living services. If he loses his ability to drive, which is coming soon believe me, I will have to put him into a nursing home as well. He'll hate that but being a Marine who has fought in three wars but we've already had the discussions and the powers of attorney signed and the living wills done etc. but deep down I still don't think I can make that decision alone. Scott I hope this works out for you eventually but don't hate, people just try to do their best and unfortunately sometimes that just means that things aren't as sympathetic or as compassionate as we'd like.
