better link to single page of images and videos of the Mazda Suitcase Car
Ha! The page is still up.
I managed to get him to bring that to a small meet we had in 2004 and there are some pics of it unfolding from the suitcase and a video of someone "driving it" here
If I recall the brief history correctly, Mazda engineers created this as a fun concept and then the sales force got hold of it and would bring it to shows and give rides on it until it broke (it was always a prototype and they should have used splined shafts for the driven wheel, but did not).
Anyways, the thing would go back into storage until someone would go "hey where's that old Suitcase Car we made?" and they would drag it out, break it and then bring it to this guy to fix. One day they brought it to him to fix and then never picked it up. I guess it is better than being lost in storage someplace.
If Mazda wants it back all they have to do it Google it.
Please elaborate, or is name-calling all you have in your wheelhouse?
I just want some of whatever he's smoking.
That term always makes me think of the Chantry's god in Dragon Age.
"Thank the Maker!"
We need people to build things far more than we need people to break them. Building things is cool. Breaking them isn't.
Gandalf isn't always right. Sometimes, you *do* have to break things in order to know how to build them better.
Not all farm land is suitable for growing vegetables, but it may be suitable for grazing. The big problem we have is that the herds are larger than what the growth on a certain land area can sustain and therefore carbohydrate supplements have to be purchased.
This handy infographic puts that in perspective.
That linked article also states that most of these laws (& of them are over 100 years old) are in the process of being repealed because they are stupid & have scientifically been proven to do not a damn thing in regards to how much water returns to the water table. Sounds like a non-issue & the system is working as designed.
They should just roll back to Windows 7 Service Pack 1 and start from there. It's bloody good, and all this is a bloody shame. They were just getting good and learning from the UNIX crowd about security and user space. Aero is gorgeous and efficient. And they threw all the best bits I got excited about in the bin - and no I didn't get excited about Vista - 7 runs better on anything that runs Vista.
I've posted before about this calamity that is removing Windows 7 from the shelves for this 8 nonsense.
Hawken & Path of Exile are pretty damn good too.
Anyone want to take bets on how soon someone figures out how to disable every cell phone in their office?
Just because you take a few classes that help you to understand logic and how computers work doesn't mean you have to be a computer scientist.
They should skip the whole computer programming thing & just bring back "Logic & Critical Thinking" as a class. This would be much more useful & would still benefit anyone who was interested in programming.
