Comment Re:Hands on Wheel? (Score 1) 137

Rather than "hands on wheel", it should be "eyes looking towards road ahead". My tablet can tell if I'm looking at it. The car should be able to see the driver is in the seat, looking forward, with their eyes open.

Reasonable gaps of a couple seconds should be allowed since humans are supposed to look around but that's just a programming detail.

So say the car realizes the driver hasn't been looking forward for a certain number of seconds, it warns the driver, starts slowing down and attempts to hand control over to the driver.

Really dark sunglasses would be an issue. And sunlight was an issue in the florida crash.

Still, holding your arms up for hours is a recipe for pain.

Pray ask Gates/... directly how they reconcile the fact that the indiscriminate nature of Mannings collection and release of information were indisputably harmful and the the claimed absence of damage from them.

That one answers itself: they can't point to any actual damage, but anything that exposes US war criminals is bad, m'kay?

"Douchebag weasel" is a frame grab appropriate to people who decided on the school playground how to decide matters, and haven't updated their model since.

Douchebag / not douchebag.

Manning will still be a convicted felon and traitor

No. Manning was never charged or tried for treason. She's a convicted felon, but in no way a traitor. More than one active duty general and Defense Secretary Robert Gates have admitted that her leaks caused no damage except to the reputations of war criminals.

Come on. Show of hands. Who thought Assange would really leave the embassy just for Chelsea Manning? He's holding out for that sweet Fox News money once Trump makes him an official member of the politburo. He's blond, so he might be Megyn Kelly's replacement.

I hope that was intended as a joke, but that stereotype was pretty crass.

You SJWs are always looking for a safe space. Well, buckle up, buttercup, because in two days you liberal snowflakes won't be able to tell us not to use racial stereotypes any more. He won, she lost. Get over it.
