Comment Smartphone using drivers (Score 2, Interesting) 200

The biggest problem is the infrastructure, drivers and cars not pedestrians, so I think you are missing the point completly.

I've often wondered why people look away from the act of random terror that cars subject us to in everyday life, instead the victims get blamed. At some point you have to understand that cars are a big health problem.

You're an idiot for stating that Germany is still an occupied country.

Really? What exactly would you call a country that has more external military than local military? A hotel? A brothel?

This made my day. :-)

But what ever we say about the military threat to Germany I have always thought of Gemany as a country which can make its own laws.

Comment Running red light is actually safe (Score 1) 383

If you look are actual numbers cyclists break traffic laws with the same frequency as everyone else, and usually in a much safer way.

Some years ago there was a study of 5 years of accidents in Stockholm; no cyclists were injured when running a red light. Left turns aren't that dangerous either. What does main and kill are those right turns which Uber got in trouble for.

Confirmation bias is a thing..

You can move to Sweden english is not a problem here, I don't know how fast you can become a citizen. But a friend, who has been living here for 7 years, applied directly after Brexit and got it this october. Getting an appartment is kind of hard.

once I discovered that output is refomatted depending on destination it was the nail in the coffin.

ls removes color if you pipe it. It is a sane thing to do, and I would guess you can override it in PowerShell too?

Like you I think the implmentation is pretty crap, I like the idea though maybe if they take it abit further.

If you have any accusations of the government doing any sort of propaganda then post them, insinuations have never helped against propaganda. Those links are not informative in any way, I would say that the second link is propaganda of the worst kind, and the first is made into propaganda from you by a strange context.
