H1Bs? That would explain a lot. Qualcomm until the early 2000s did incredible stuff. Now they pump out a stream of crap that destroyed voice comm by imprinting over compressing badly designed codecs causing voice to be unintelligible unless the speaker is Asian.
Studies more than 40 years old have always consistently shown this, including one I read as a young boy long ago, that showed professional race drivers after mild marijuana intoxication had IMPROVED lap times, though this edge dropped off at higher intoxication levels. Trying to point stuff like this out over the decades had jerkwads accusing me of the most awful things. Whatever I just don't care anymore. Marijuana being illegal while alcohol is not is insanity by definition, but most people are dumb animals and our world is run by sociopaths and there's nothing I can do about it.
Just call it OS L and be done with it.

I want my Bubble Memory. I have been waiting 35 years for it.
Wait. So you break the law just the right amount, but you want other's that break the law more than the right amount (as determined by you) to have their wallets drained? Asshole. Your attitude, and those that think like you do is ruining... everything.
Correct. Speed limits only increase congestion by increasing the time each car spends taking up space on the roadway. Speed limits, and the resulting congestion, kills people. Decreasing speed limits typically result in more deaths on the road and this has been shown time and time again.
Advocating for speed limits is advocating for more more people dead on the roadway.
I wish the "oooo scary!" people would put their fear of driving aside for a minute and look at the data. So many people have died because of speed limits. I wish the people who want slower speeds because of "Ooooo scary!!! I'm scared!!!" would just step back for a second and realize they're helping sociopathic revenue focused politicians suck more from our wallets while not caring how many bodies litter the streets with their evil legislation. Not the mention increasing the power of the police state.
Speed limits kill!!!
A few years ago Texas opened a 40 mile stretch on part of a toll road called the Pickle Parkway between Austin and San Antonio. The tolled bypass was supposed to help relieve the bottleneck around Austin but the highway was built so far to the east that practically nobody used it. In desperation, the state raised the toll road speed limit to 85 mph, the fastest in the nation. "The idea was that drivers could drop the top, drop the hammer, crank the music and fly right past Austin," says Wade Goodyn. "It's a beautiful, wide-open highway — but it's empty, and the builders are nearly bankrupt.""
I'm thinkin radioactive laser sharks
Old user here from way back logging in for the first time in ages just to echo the above comment. Dice, if you don't like things the way they've been since you were in diapers do us all a favor and sell the place to someone who appreciates that an item of quality ought not be melted down and reformed just to suit the fashion of the day. Just take what money you can get, and move on please.
Mod Parent UP!!!!
I've seen this first hand! It's insane!
well then we need to do some research on making smaller electrons
Back of envelope calculation shows me they're saying there's a 1 in 3000 chance of some person getting hit somewhere. Or am I holding it wrong?
I know all about this moon.
