I didn't need actual data to tell me that. I just watched The Wire.

A mask is not a political statement.
It's an IQ test.
It's a compassion test.
It's a decency test.
It's a social responsibility test.

GPU shipments confirm that the crypto-mining craze is behind us for now.

Thank FSM for that.

USA drivers suck; largely cause they don't use their turn signals and secondly cause they use the left lanes improperly.

Police should enforce and fine for these but they don't.

That's the same everywhere - don't forget the tailgating, that's 95% of accidents right there. In many other places it's much, much worse. Look at India where 14 people die on the roads every hour. Not day, but hour. A lot of countries out there make our bullshit look like a pleasant dream by comparison.

As I understand it, Indians are fatalistic and believe they have no control over when they die, so see no point in adhering to speed limits or wearing seat belts. Although I've painted with somewhat of a broad brush, the point is that it's a cultural thing. End result: probably some of the worst drivers on the planet.

Again, self driving cars can't come soon enough

I'm in a loaner car while mine is in the shop, and it has the lane change detection for the turn signal. It's nice in normal traffic but with heavy rush hour traffic that thing tries to give me a heart attack. I see I have enough room to get over hit the signal as I start moving over *BEEBEEBEE BEEP* 'WHAT WHATS THERE?!?! oh is that all' and then it's too late.

Turn signal thing would be nice, at least give a little warning, assuming it's not overly sensitive.
