I don't normally reply to ACs, but anyone who has ever figured out the trick to a silent fart will know that it is "mature". Or at least mature given the lifespan of your average fart.
Actually, he does have a point, humorous as it is. Atheism has a very strong "evangelical" side. [Citation: Slashdot as a whole]... Anyone who has any other point of view is attacked by an evangelist, while the more reasonable, logical atheists appear to have learned to hold their peace. I have seen bhuddists, christians, mulisms and even mere agnostics attacked here. I think it is a sign of maturity within any philosophy when you can learn when to be silent.
Hello!. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.
Flat out my 1.8l Elantra does 30-40l to 100km, which translates to a range of around 110-200km - roughly comparable. Also, they lied about the top speed in the advertising blurb. More precise numbers are unavailable, since under those conditions I don't trust the l/100km measurement.
Posting to undo accidental mod.
Depends where you are. The taxi drivers prefer hand guns - easier to conceal. A lot of people would be quite surprised at what Africa is really like if they visited, but then if Americans in general were interested in the world beyond their borders trolling them would be harder. No I don't drive a 2012 Hyundai elantra (considered a fairly cheap vehicle). Instead I ride an elephant to work every morning...
People who react in such a dangerous manner are unsuitable to operate a motor vehicle. As I mentioned above, there is a mechanism in place to allow people to pass and it would be an offence by the slower driver not to move out of the way when safe to do so. You can get a fine for that. Further more, what the idiot tailgating doesn't understand is that the correct response which will save both him and you damage is in fact to slow down to increase the gap in front of you until you can allow him to pass. The opposite of what he desires. In effect a tailgater is therefore too stupid to operate a motor vehicle having no understand of cause and effect or stopping distance in emergency situations. I'm afraid there is no positive spin on tailgating possible. It is stupid, counter to the tailgaters interests and goals, quite rightly illegal and dangerous. No excuses or explanations should ever be considered as none are valid.
I often do, when safe, but at times you get boxed in. In that case I slow down to leave more gap in front of me (it is called defensive driving) which just makes the idiot behind me angry. The issue is, most drivers here do not.
I'm doing 130km/h in the normal lane and some genius sits behind me 30cm away? The limit here is 120km/h. This happens on single lane roads as well, and by the way, going to slowly in the passing lane doesn't justify someone else driving in a dangerous manner. Over here(in normal, not stop-go traffic, which is caused by tailgating anyway) if the guy behind you flashes his lights and you are able to move to the left, you are obliged to do so, so he may pass without changing lanes, regardless if you are doing 180km/h or 30km/h. There is no justification here for tailgating. It is stupid, dangerous and often kills people.
I suspect he was reffering to your misuse of "hear, hear!" as "here, here". I don't personally think this should disqualify you from driving a vehicle, but this is slashdot, so he probably does. I am always tempted to reply to "here, here" with "Where? Where?"
Actually I wouldn't mind a sort of instant brick wall system that would let me slam on breaks and have the idiot tailgating me crash without damaging my car. People in South Africa really do not understand following distance, and whenever it rains (often even when it doesn't) this results in lots of sensless death.
I love how the climate debate causes people to start insulting each other. As if this might change someone's mind instead of causing them to fight even harder for their POV and achieving the opposite of the desired outcome. Your observation is correct. Your delivery removes it's force. Why argue at all if it just makes things worse?
People like you just wine, considering I have a [...]
FTFY. Wine has come a long way and I have to admit, between Wine, Vmware and steam for linux, I can actually see myself ditching windows almost completely eventually..
Thank you. I had tried a while back to fix that in office, and failed. This will make Visual Studio 2012 usable for me.
Yes, she is wrong, but your post adds little to the discussion. I suppose the flame would have to be closer, but then a cutting torch is cheaper. Perhaps it has to do with the distance between the operator and the radioactive stuff.
