That's aggravatingly short on details. All it says is the driver of the other vehicle failed to yield. So why didn't the auton swerve away at the last second? Suspending everything for a full investigation is warranted by the sounds of it.

Jesus. That looks....terrible.

Don't think anyone cares how it "looks" considering how stupidly entertaining Chivalry was.

No, it looks terrible.

Edit: Yeah it's not showing up as free for me either.

Re: the portion sizes. I meant US sizes have always been larger relative to the rest of the world. I still remember the first time I went to a Dennys. My folks took me and my cuz to Disney World for the 1976 bicentennial celebrations - it was awesome. And we were all flabbergasted when our food arrived and started looking around at other people's stuff. Ever since it's always been really evident. Not so much in better upscale places but chains for sure.

I can't even make it to the end of the first season. The puzzle of the show is intriguing, but actually watching an episode I find really boring. Characters are not interesting, dialog is poor and unmemorable.

I've made it 5 or 6 which is more than I usually give something I find so dull.

Huh, it's one of the few series I found immensely enjoyable. It's nice to see a modern show with some intelligence involved in it. A lot of the series folks around here talk about I just don't get the draw for them. Conversely I found Tom Hardy's Taboo painfully boring. I love his work, but that series just blows.

I was going to check out Iron Fist but I felt severely misled by the title and was hoping it was something entirely different. Hi-o! Biker

Haven't caught up with this season of Black Sails yet but I like that series so far. Yarr!

And the new Star Trek is coming this fall. I sincerely doubt it won't suck but we may get lucky.

I may watch The Santa Clarita Diet simply for Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant. Anyone watched it?

It's hard to sympathise with Lexmark, as they chose a path that drove down the inial cost of their printing hardware to make more money down the road through ink cartridge gauging.

The rough math is about 4.5mL of ink costs about $30, which makes it over $5000 USD per pound.

Now they can't put the genie back into the bottle, competitors have similar printer hardware for just as cheap (often under $100), so charging a fair price for what the hardware is worth is out of the question.

ergo, fuckem. They've made their bed. And fuck them twice for thinking that people can't use their own ink. You're not leasing the printer from the, you bought it.

I can only imagine this legal case turning out very very bad for lots of consumers going forward. I might be mistaken, but I think that it would essentially overrule any "right-to-repair" legislation trying to be passed at the state level, as they can tell you exactly how you're supposed to use the product, and any other way is illegal.

far-reaching consequences indeed.

The one upside is right-to-repair has really come to the forefront across all spectrums. I'd imagine before too long companies will have to acquiesce or go bankrupt. There was a farmer who wrote a good piece on it and all the shit going on with John Deere and how farmers are abandoning them in droves to buy from companies that don't do that shit. As this issue gets more press I expect it to gain more traction going forward. Hell, it could be a good marketing tool if your company states it supports your right to repair or modify their products because you own it!

it seems we had more leftovers when we were done that we had food to start with.

Yeah, restaurant portion size in the USA is just ridiculous these days. You basically receive a days worth of calories in a single meal.

It's always been that way as long as I remember it.

Exactly. And the retailers are complicit too. They should be required to tell prospective customers that they're not actually buying a product but merely renting it.

I don't give a shit what you identify as. I'll call you Twinkletoes if it makes you happy. However, if you can't have a child because you lack a womb for it to gestate in than sorry but you're a male. You want to be a chick? Cool beans. Wanting something, however, does not make it so. I wanted to be starting QB for the Packers. Life had other plans in store. So I may identify as a Superbowl winning quarterback but I'm still not regardless of how much I want it.

There is no such thing as gender neutral, you're one or the other. How you identify is entirely up to you. Just don't expect everyone else to respect your choice because they owe you nothing. So long as they don't hinder your choice they're free to disregard it as is their wont. Tolerance is NOT acceptance.

Personally I've always come down on the side of Stephen Stills, if you can't be with the one you love, honey, love the one your with.

I'm going to make a rare exception to my rule not to enter political discussions. But when it invades water-bear space that's it...

People keep falling for the dems vs repubs shell game. It is all about entrenched Washington DC culture vs the rest of the country. The actions of these hypocrite republicans who voted over and over to repeal the ACA when they knew a veto was assured proves it. If congress was put under the ACA you'd see them singing a different tune. If the ACA is good enough for the rest of the country why should congress be exempt?

The folks glibly suggesting impeachment remind me way too much of the folks who ignited the Civil War following the election of Lincoln. We do NOT want to repeat that horror.

Yes, but the Dems - whilst still evil - are measurably less evil than the GOP. That's just a fact, like death and taxes. It's not even close in who's better for the people on the whole and who's better for the elites/big biz/military-industrial.

Unless they have unequivocal proof and can charge him with treason the GOP will do everything they can to bury it and protect themselves. It'll simply be Nixon all over again. At the very least it could make for a huge shakeup in congressional elections next year - which is absolutely needed. America desperately needs to pull out of this nosedive.

It was doomed to fail and amazingly enough it was because of all those GOP voters in the Rust Belt. They've been turning out in droves at town meetings castigating their reps and warning them not to fuck with the ACA. Everything else has gone to shit but at least now they have some basic healthcare, even they're not that dumb to let the GOP rob them of them of that now that they have it.

Look on the bright side; no matter how the actual game turns out, this whole experience will end up as a PhD level topic for some psychologist's case study. "Why did so many people continue to give money for no discernable return, for so long?"

Cults have been well documented and studied for a very long time now. Just ask Thulsa Doom.

It's not the amount it's the principle. We're already vastly overtaxed on luxury goods and most of that has come from those constant nickel and dime increases over the decades.

And yes, that break means a lot to MOST people as they all have to commute. It means nothing to the rich. Same bullshit with the road tolls. It means nothing to them and they'll pay it and benefit from it while everyone else sits in even more traffic. It's absolutely par for the course for the attitude of the Liberals and Conservatives in this country. And in spite of this most of the fucking morons in this country still keep voting for them and against their own self-interest. They NEVER learn. That's the definition of stupid or insane. Take your pick.

There's no other explanation for their actions and attitude, this being another example of exactly that including the backtracking/flip-flop.


The explanation is:

Fuck Trudeau and Cp. and the horse they rode in on. Booze prices need to go down not up. And once again we see this clown is all talk and pro-taxes. So no subsidies for people who need to take public transit AND a carbon tax to boot. Just another reward the elites and fuck the poor Liberal tax.
