Comment Re:How well do they handle dangerous situations? (Score 1) 307

I've seen lots of video of them under ideal scenarios.

Let's get some crash video! :)

Hydroplaning, black ice, big potholes, road debris, silver-hairs stomping on the brakes, et cetera.

Should be entertaining, if disconcerting, to say the least.

I'd like to know what they do in a couple of non-ideal scenarios... kernel panic, BSOD

Not only had this better not see one red penny of taxpayer money

Maybe I'm splitting hairs, but it sounds like they are just allowing them to pay less tax. Its not like they are giving them the actual dollar notes from your tax.

If people want to build these things and run them with private money, even for a profit, I don't care. But the second you start taking my money to proselytize your religion, I get VERY agitated.

Yes, agitated, irrational and completely out of control of your dictionary. Try this:

How many of the dozen or so open minded atheists do you think are going to willingly walk through the gates? Are you planning to go and get proselytized? Like the theme or not, this is going to influence believers not unbelievers.

Comment Re:He actually reads those mails? (Score 1) 179

I know for a fact that neither Senator Conroy nor anyone in his office ever read any of my emails.

I know this because they replied to each one (eventually) with some form letter that addressed none of the issues I'd raised and was often very wide of the mark. In fact that's pretty standard for everything I sent the Rudd/Gillard government.

Non-garbage In -> Garbage Out.
