each of them over ten years old.

I'm not a Mini-van fan, but those things, even at 10+ years are nice on the inside and you can't kill them. They just keep going. Also, the years they were built they were more American than the Mustang of the same year model, actually passing it up in parts manufactured in the U.S./ Canada. I don't know if the whole "Sienna is more American than the Mustang" thing is still true or not, but a little over ten years ago it was.

I mostly see people mad that they aren't getting a financial cut and people mad because someone other than them is regulating speach on their page. It amazes me how many people want to regulate speach.

If it's nothing but a vandal wall people will ignore it. If it's something great people will use it. Low tollerance people will cry to regulate it, I'm a little tired of people crying until they get regulations on things they don't like. If someone wants to side Wiki let them, I don't care if they're huge right now or not, I found it to be quite ignorable, rarely did I find any comments worth viewing on it.

What I want to know is why it's fine for me to make my own, but it's not okay for Google, or in this case Firefox? It's not like it was on by default, you had to download it from Google Labs. I really don't care if it exist or not, I thought it was interesting, I installed it, but I wound up ignoring it like I do most bells and whistles.

I've seen this happen before. If it's a good enough weld with Chromoly it may not ever happen under 400 lbs of rider, but you're right, welds have been a reoccurring issue with low production run bikes in the past, not just Chinese, but even really high end names. There's just too many issues with this design. I could see it being fun for kids in a neighborhood, but I have trouble taking it seriously otherwise.

You could get an old laptop display, or even a tablet, be it Android or iProduct and beat this thing in every way. But you can't see a tablet well in the sunlight? I think it's obvious from this video you can't see that thing in the daylight either.

I'm not knocking the guys ability or talents, but he invented the light display AFTER the Jumbotron came out.

I'm a cyclist, I think things like Monkey lights are incredibly awesome, I think the new inner rim lights are great, but this isn't on point.
