That Tesla allows operation at all without someone in the drivers seat reveals a serious design flaw. Other manufacturers make sure someone is behind the wheel at all times. I mean, when you have to point to GM as an example of a good implementation of anything you know you have a problem!

Glad to hear you've discovered the genius of Charlie Chaplin! I'm sure you'll enjoy this deleted scene from City Lights - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c2SGpXJmd1w

And while we're here, have you met Buster Keaton? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9QPfiLuQ9c

I'd like to think I know quite a bit about comedy, but like most I have never seen full clips of Charlie Chaplin and the City Lights clip was brilliant. Thank you for expanding my knowledge base

(sorry, I can't seem to delete the un-quoted reply)

I'm glad you enjoyed it!

It's good to know there is a rich history of comedy to be discovered if you go back in time. Familiar gags turn out to be much older than people would guess. My wife and I were gratified at showing our 10 year old nephew some Marx Brothers and he became such a huge fan we gave him a boxed set for Christmas! It was fun to be able to do some of their routines together.

I don't know anything about Halo: Infinite, or what people are complaining about.

But from the headline I read the game title as "Halo: Infinite Criticism", which seems apt

Seems to me your own logo would make a fine (and appropriate) tattoo.

Personally, I don't have or want any. If I did get one it would be of my lifelong role model - Bugs Bunny.

That shouldn't be a problem anyway:

Small rodents like squirrels, hamsters, guinea pigs, gerbils, chipmunks, rats, and mice) and lagomorphs including rabbits and hares are almost never found to be infected with rabies and have not been known to transmit rabies to humans.

Also, once I was bitten by an abandoned pet rat I was trying to rescue. My doctor told me not to worry about it beyond normal infection risk.

Maybe this will cheer you up Cutter - Gloucester Massachusetts Osprey Cam. Three chicks being very well taken care of by their parents. I leave it up all day on another monitor while I'm working: https://ecga.org/osprey-cam Note that they turn it off at 6pm EST everyday for some reason, so it might be off for the day by the time you see this.

Though it does get rough sometimes when the fish the male brings in is still alive when they start eating it

On the good side, within a 2-3 weeks these guys will be starting their first flights!

Cutter, good for you for the attempt. You can't know it wouldn't have worked.

I know someone whose dog got into rat poison. Luckily they found out quickly and were able to save him, but it was a long slow process. In his case it was Warfarin so he had internal bleeding, and after treatment was very susceptible to bruising, so he was not allowed to play or roughhouse for quite some time. Tell a young Lab not to play! The mouse probably also ate warfarin, the internal bleeding would probably make the little guy dehydrated.

The worst are the cyanide traps they put out for coyotes in the West. They routinely kill people's dogs attracted to the bait, and a child was nearly killed by one. Don't research the topic unless you want to have a stroke from anger.

Blue, I gotta love your sense of humor over such a disappointment! I hope they can do it before they have to shut everything down again!

RIP one of the greats. In a genre where you would expect nothing in the way of soundtracks, his were compelling and unforgettable.

Agree about Airplane!

"I know you! You're Kareem Abdul Jabbar!"

I'd give "Hot Shots!" second place. Same director of course, and both with Lloyd Bridges. In fact I like his part in "Hot Shots!" even better.
(from IMdb)


Admiral Benson : [while standing on top of the aircraft carrier, his cap blew off and landed in the ocean] Holy Cow! My cap blew off! Swing her round. We'll pick it up.

Officer : But, sir, we're on the mission.

Admiral Benson : Good thinking. We'll pick it up on the way back. We gotta mark the spot, though. Put Robinowitz in a life raft. Have him row in circles until we return.

Officer : It could be days.

Admiral Benson : Then put some food in the life raft, for god's sake, man. Do I have to think of everything? We'll tape his favorite shows, he won't miss anything.

I bought a fuel gauge for my grill, it goes in between the tank and the connector from the grill. It seems pretty accurate.

This came up before and the conclusion seemed to be that the portion of the liquid propane that turns to gas maintains roughly the same pressure almost all the way down, so the gauge doesn't really provide ample warning against running out. Has your experience been different?

I'm pretty sure it went into the yellow as it got low, though I'm not sure if I had more than one or two grilling sessions warning. I also keep a second tank on hand anyway.

I kind of prefer the older, more condensed format.

But then I don't visit the site on mobile. If this helps with mobile browsers you should keep it.

Fundraiser for medical bills, welcome to the USA.

But let's worry about 'Socialism,' instead of having health care for our citizens!

This country is so fucked I am not sure it can feasibly recover.

And it makes us much more vulnerable to one of these epidemics than most developed countries. Hourly workers generally don't have sick time, and they are working paycheck to paycheck. So they have to try to work, even when they are sick. Hourly workers are the ones preparing food in restaurants, checking us out in stores etc. So, sick people doing that exposing many others.

Then they also don't generally have health insurance, or if they do they are on a high deductible plan, so they don't want to go to the doctor because it will be more bills they can't pay. So they are screwed both ways, can't afford to take sick time, can't afford to be treated, so they will suffer and expose other people. And I can't even blame them.

* - I am very fortunate to be on a salary with sick time and insurance (though with a high deductible). But I don't like the way others are treated.
