"I imagine that even Bin Laden would be surprised the extent to which a single organized attack could inject its backward thinking into a nation that claimed to be so different than the rest." That backward thinking was already here. It's been here the whole time. Read about J. Edgar Hoover or Nixon. The list is many. Giving any government, power without control is going to create this.
I believe this clip should clear the idea up quickly. The scene in reference is 4:55. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...
I think your right. So far none of this has been particularly malicious. However, it shows a viable threat to aircraft and should be handled terminatedly. If a low power level laser that is powered by 2 AAA batteries is capable of messing up the landing sequence of a muti-million dollar plane with hundreds of people on I don't think it should be protected a possible fine. Maybe use cameras for landing. They currently have better fog penetration and can see better at night. A laser wont do any real damage to them and then if there is a problem with the cameras the pilot can always look out the window.
Because the US Jetta is 37.8 miles to the gallon and the UK Jetta is 45.4 miles to the gallon. http://www.fuelly.com/car/volk...
No it's not. It had to be completely re-engineered by VW for the US and was canceled for a short time because of that. It is not the same diesel they have in the EU.
Evidently you don't know what the Chinese are going to do to the Quality Control Engineer for the project.
I like that Voluntary there. I am sure the Irish people put into indentured service really wanted to reduce their numbers to about 200,000 thousand and be sold off at a rate of 5 to a black slave. http://www.globalresearch.ca/t...
Actually that is wrong. There are reasons to have large big cars in the US. Frankly we are a giant country. Try driving from Los Angeles to Chicago in a tiny car some time. Midwest and western united states there is a ton of space between locations. Trying to do that in a tiny car does not work. As far as mileage goes the US car makers are to blame. We want fuel efficient cars, even with gas prices in the US two to three times better than the EU we still do a ton more driving and a fuel efficient car would be a god send. But we get messed over on fuel efficiency. We got the smart car and I thought "this will be great. Those little things get great mileage in Europe". What we got was not what you get in the EU. It had worse gas mileage than a VW Jetta. We don't get the nice Diesels you get there. Shoot, our first Hybrid car had worse mileage than our diesel cars. We don't want to have gas guzzlers but if we are going to live with them we might as well be comfortable in them.
I like the Trembling coward thing. From an AC.
The computer would most likely be preventing a lot more accidents so you wouldn't have to take over. A large amount of accidents can be prevented by surveying traffic conditions and predicting outcomes. Most computers seem to work well with patterns. And most traffic accidents I have seen showed specific patterns before hand. Seems like most people on the road react to conditions instead of looking at patterns and predicting outcomes. Humans would probably not be needed except for off paved road conditions and you would have plenty of time to be notified of that condition.
Actually I see the opposite. When I drive people around they talk, work on their phones, or make calls. They don't usually tell me to go faster. On an automatic car you would most likely see people start to do other more important things than worry about that
.25 second advantage they would have if they cut off three cars.
I lived in an area in new mexico where it could take two to three hours for a sheriff to get out to the house. How would I defend myself without a firearm? How would I stop a bear attack? If you were a single woman of 120 pounds recently removed from an abusive relationship with 250 pound drunk that walks right over a court order how do you defend yourself? How does a old woman of 80 years protect her home from two grown men kicking in her door for her painkillers? If guns are not needed why do the police and military have them? How do you stop a coyote from actively attacking livestock or your child? What do you use to stop the 300 pound alligator that just chomped on grammy's knee?
" A professional army will always beat hicks with guns in a pitched battle...all they need is the motivation" The first thing that pops to mind on that subject is "never get involved in a land war in Asia"
What is an ACCIDENTAL drive-by shooting?
