A society that doesn't allow math won't last long.

They do allow math. Just not for everyone. They keep children stupid, except the ones that work for them using and creating technology to keep them in power. The leaders of the group know that Islam - and religion in general - is bull shit, but - as in our countries - religion keeps people dumb and easy to manipulate. As Dostoevski wrote in his parable about the cardinal great-inquisitor.

I am. I know that a power plant is a lot more efficient, but I don't think it's easier to make the plant cleaner than individual cars. If a power plant has an 80% or even 90% efficiency and a car has 30%, the power plant still emits a significant amount, compared to cars with combustion engines. From discussions, especially when politicians are involved, you could think that electrical cars are emission free. They are not.

Btw, the future of cars is synthetic gasoline created by solar panels, not electricity.

They should teach these people how to install linux on their home computers too. It's less confusing to have one os (all linux) than two (linux in the office, windows at home). Maybe even give them a free linux laptop for the home. They can afford that because of the license fee savings for not using windows.

I ride a GSX-R1000. On the street, sometimes on the track. The site says the helmet has a "quick release chin strap". So it's not safe. On the track, a double D is required. I want a double D strap always. That made me want to find more info, but there's surprisingly little info on the quality of the helmet itself. Apparently, it's a cheap helmet. But at $1500, what does the extra $150 matter to make it a safe helmet? I would love to have a helmet with the gadgets that Skully gives us, but not at the cost of safety. What's the use of a heads up display after your skull broke in a crash?

I'd rather be led to hell than managed to heavan.
