Well, you solved it -- assuming it isn't a false positive. Sorry, had to be said.

I take the perspective that everyone is trying to kill me.
This is the correct attitude to take, and the reason I've never taken up riding a motorcycle despite how much I think I'd like it.

She seems to come up on him, you can not see her in the initial shot when he is looking straight ahead. At best, it would seem she would be directly beside him at that point.

Often in a two lane to one lane merge like this there is a sign indicating the which lane must yield (usually the right). But I don't see any such sign in the video. Barring a sign to indicate it, I'm not sure what the rules of the road say about which motorist would have the right of way, assuming they are equally advanced down the road. However, my guess would be the right lane should yield. I certainly don't think there is is an established "left, right, left" sequence as the motorcyclist suggests.

In the end, I agree with those saying the motorcyclist should be riding more defensively. Even if the woman is being an asshole, in the worst case scenario, the motorcyclist is going to always lose.

Slightly odd on the grizzly killing the mountain biker. Would have thought two mountain bikers would have made enough noise to make the bear retreat into the woods before they even saw the bear. I guess it's possible they were traveling at a good clip...

Add me to the list of people surprised by the responsiveness of the officer. Not that he wouldn't want to help, but that he understood the biker had it on video and acted immediately. Props to the cop.

Interesting, I thought they had a definition of weight more specific than that. Something like "X cubic centimeters of water at a specific temperature and pressure." Weird.

Apologies in advance, but upon seeing the clip of this I had to post about it. Donald Trump talking from the podium at a rally about free trade:

"I want great deals. I don't care if they're free. I don't care if they're fair. I don't care if they're good. I don't care if they're horrendous. I just want great deals. I'll do it all different ways."

Uh... yeah.

Well, the fact there were pop-ups where the software considered closing the dialog with the "x" as confirmation makes it pretty easy to see how someone might "okay" the update even when they thought they were canceling it. Frankly, in my mind that borders on criminal behavior by MS. It isn't, but I kinda wish it was.

I've never seen one of these update notices. And yes, I do updates through Windows Update. Not that I'm complaining, I've yet to hear a compelling reason to upgrade. And the fact you can still order PCs with Win7 installed, says quite a bit.

I have no intention of upgrading anytime soon. And if I have "pay" to do it when I'm ready, whether it is 6 months or 3 years from now, it won't bother me.

Have you stolen your investors money? Peter Molyneux apparently declined their request for a comment.

There fixed that for you.

Actually I don't know jack about this game or where it's development is at, but given the lack of information and the players involved, I hope no one was really anxious to see this game.

Yeah, saw some of those too. I just hope Americans don't make the same decision vis a vis Trump.
*fingers crossed*

Saw the news that George Will had left the GOP, changing his voter registration to "unaffiliated". Trump, not surprisingly, blasted Will via Twitter. To which George Will responded, "He has an advantage on me, because he can say everything he knows about any subject in 140 characters and I can't."

Zing!

Haha! Amusing indeed. However, it did leave out one possibility though, Johnson triggers Brexit and five years from now everyone looks upon it much the same way we do the Y2K uproar. Possible? Sure. Likely? I have no idea.

Read a couple of other articles. Sounds like while Scotland blocking Brexit might technically be possible, it would probably be considered bad form. Something along the lines of say, if the Scots had voted to leave the UK and the British parliament vetoed them leaving.

But then again, sometimes people/companies/countries do things that are bad form despite knowing it they are doing it - could be very interesting.
