He didn't say Stone Age, you did. Are you saying that the Early Christians -- who ate horses and shit soup and bibles and fires and died of the plague and America -- were living in the Stone Age?
The bumper sticker reads "Scientists do it with the Scientific Method"
he's less intellectually dishonest
So it's not dishonest or even a teensy bit unethical to be self-contradictory? As in "prohibit political or religious interpretation of scientific facts in favor of another."
Well there is, but the above aren't the problems, and you've called out the major motivators for the current problems.
And by "better" you mean "better at massaging the figures and sweeping their failures under the carpet".
My exposure to this was limited by journalists who played only the parts of the audio from which we can learn something, i.e., the murderer's speech, and not the murder itself. This showed the proper level of restraint, without sensationalizing the story.
If I wanted to find the full video I could find it because there's this thing called the Internet.
A cross. Yes. That should work.
And in certain other areas, i.e., the UK where these traffic lights are being trialled, would result in them never getting stopped by a red light.
I heard a while ago that they've used these in Portugal.
Which these days are perfectly capable of doing 120 mph without breaking a sweat.
This only bolsters the claim that autonomous vehicles should be restricted to private lanes. We call them trams, or in the US "streetcars".
It's called "anticipation". If you don't have it you shouldn't be on the road. (Which would take about 99% of all US drivers down.)
Speed limits aren't the same as speed limits.
Let me clarify:
UK speed limits aren't the same thing as US speed limits. They have different reasons for existence. In the UK speeds are set at a reasonable level for the condition of the road. In the US, somebody counts their fingers and toes until they can't go any higher and puts the result (or something like it) on a sign. Either that or police departments say "We're not meeting our speed ticket quota" and have the limit lowered. Often new lower limits are posted after a road is improved. And that's considering US speed limits were often originally set for unmetalled farm tracks. So we have wide two-way roads with 50 mph speed limits where a narrower road would be 60 in the UK. We have urban dual carriageways with a 35 mph limit where the UK would see 50 mph. We have rural divided highways with 50 mph limits where the UK limit would be the default 70 mph. Big difference.
So absolutely, speeding in the US is normal driving, and per TFS, not speeding is the more dangerous habit.
That doesn't transfer to the UK, where speeding is antisocial arseclown behaviour.
Closer to the point of the article, habits of US drivers do not automatically transfer to other countries. In the US it's very common for drivers to overshoot when making a turn onto a multi-lane street (e.g., driver in lane 1 of 2 turns right onto lane 3 of 3, where 1 is rightmost lane). In the UK it's bordering on the unconscionable.
But this lack of bad habits is an advantage of moving to the UK (and Europe). Also for the facts that signage and road markings are far clearer and more consistent, and vehicle roadworthiness rules are enforced. The basics can be dealt with in a wonderland of discipline and safety, and then the project can be booted back over the wall to the US team to deal with the road stupid I have to deal with daily.
Not just "left or right?", but "10 mph over or 10% + 3 mph over?". In the US, you can typically drive 10 mph over the limit without getting pulled over by police. In the UK the rule is 10% of the speed limit + 3 mph for equipment tolerances. So, if the posted limit is 25 mph, your "hard limit" is 25 + 2.5 + 3 = 30.5 mph. Likewise for 70 mph (national limit for motorways and dual carriageways), the "hard limit" is 70 + 7 + 3 = 80 mph.
Chalk it up to another case where American assumptions do not apply abroad.
When all you have is a keyboard, everything looks like a string of characters.
The biggest problem with biometrics is that we only have one set of them and they're not invulnerable. You find some way to authenticate as me, you suddenly have everything of mine.
