*Please*, please, please...let this be what I always hoped Master of Orion would become...
My brother and I were actually heading down to the Sunset Strip a couple weeks ago for a concert and my brother decided to try the Waze route. We spent far longer than we would have taking that route, back through the hilltop Hollywood neighborhoods--tight windy roads up and down steep hills, tons of low to no-visibility corners, single-lane available width a lot of the way. Seriously dangerous, particularly since it was at night and was raining hard.
Yeah, never again.

Does anyone else find it incredible to see THREE useless spam bot replies to my post advertising an anti-advertising product?
Or you can just use Adblock like any sane person and just not deal with it, funding be damned.
Honestly I'm the type of person you do NOT want to advertise to. The more annoying the advertising the more likely I am to make it a point to avoid that product / service as much as possible.
Time for a spike of in-sink garbage disposal sales!
Oh hell, Jamie and Adam are guilty of the same thing - missing the obvious. I just watched the stripped down version of testing the myth that being in the presence of an attractive member of the opposite sex 'dumbs you down'. Test was read the color of the word and not the text. On the second time through, both sexes' scores improved. and J&A were surprised. Wow. The same people taking the same test a little later in the day (usually called practice) improved. They simply concluded the myth was busted and didn't at all consider the practice session. There are a number of other episodes where the obvious was ignored as well.
If I remember correctly, the claim made, which they said was backed by other studies of this particular test, was that due to the nature of how the brain worked--the whole point of this particular test--studies showed practice had little to no effect.
I still want to know why the fuck an eBook with virtually zero cost of goods is near twice the price of an actual paperback with serious manufacturing, storage, and distribution costs.
If eBooks were sold with the same profit margins as paperback they'd probably be about $2. I refuse to pay much more than that for one.
A firearm IS a safety device in and of itself.
To add another 'feature' to impede in the ability of a safety device to function properly is insane.
Imagine if the brakes on your car had such a 'feature.' Need to slam on your brakes? Ooops, you were reaching your right arm out to grab your coffee, watch now out of range, no brakes.
Now imagine the same thing, but in a mugging. You and your attacker go to the ground, including your gun. You manage to reach it with your off-hand. Oops, no bang--your watch was on your other hand. Or, to go with their scenario, the bad guy gets the gun. You grab his wrist, trying to push the gun out of your face--oops, you just stuck your watch within 10 inches of it...bang, you're dead.
Just wait until we deal with the giant starfish, sentient lobsters and mirror girls.
At 100k units you are barely even getting into hot territory. For most people I'd classify the list as:
350k-800k (Most of your 'hots', brain strains, 7-pot, that sort of stuff)
800k-1m (Bhut Jalokia and other 'superhots')
1m+ (Trinidad Moruga Scorpions and other record holders)
Come on, we all know how we *really* use sudo:
- Set yourself up with the NOPASSWD option in sudoers
- sudo su -
Yeah, my immediate thought was on birds, not insects, but it makes sense for them as well. I see birds picking up all sorts of random trash all the time, and regularly see nests with manmade items in them.
I have a feeling you're dealing with the same issue I am. I've reported it to Google, but years later it still isn't fixed.
I have a normal username (made up example: firstname.lastname@example.org). This other user apparently has "email@example.com". I don't know if they get any mail at all, but I get lots of theirs. I even tested it, sending an email to my address with randomly-inserted periods, and they all end up coming to me.
There is a common phrase in my neck of the woods: "...a level of stupidity that can only be attributed to a college education."
It isn't a knock on the education so much as it is about the sheltered lives far too many college students have led until that point.
The 5th Amendment is yet another example of our founding fathers' attempts to curb tyranny.
