Comment Saitek has had some issues (Score 2) 69

There are some discussions out there about saitek having supply chain issues and products being on backorder indefinitely. One in particular is their rudder pedals, which used to be reasonably priced, now costs hundreds of dollars. Hopefully Logitech will get things on track. The flight sim controller isn't a crazy lucrative business unless you are really enthusiastic and the ultra enthusiast is shopping above Saitek's quality.

Comment Could be lower, but perhaps insignificant (Score 1) 72

There is a level of false confidence driver have to recognize to go "okay, I shouldn't drive." I started using Uber and it only costs about $7 without surge to get home. I had a few drinks the other night and I Uber'd home, picked up my car the next day. I get caught over the limit, I lose my job (company car) and perhaps my career (licensed medical personnel). I'm just one guy and there were a -lot- of people at that pub.

One thing to consider: how many drunk drivers actually get caught? Go to a average-sized bar with maybe 100 people inside and see how many get in their car and drive home. Do you really think they are not impaired? If your jail has a website listing arrests, check it out and you'll find maybe only a handful of people arrested for DUI. Now, consider the number of Uber drivers out there compared to licensed drivers alone. The difference in the number of DUIs may be a narrow margin and, therefore, considered statistically insignificant.
