Self driving vehicles creep me out. How will feds mandate purchases?

Self driving (autonomous) vehicles give me the creeps. Supposedly the computer programming gods have factored in EVERY conceivable scenario involved in driving, so we, the unwashed masses, are supposed to buy into this. First let me list some of the negative anecdotes SO FAR, with self driving vehic...

How about the morons who aren't using a gas station's air pumps, but then park in front of the air pumps anyway, blocking anyone with serious PSI issues? *********************************************************************************** FYI: In case anyone out there is not aware, QT (Quik Trip) gas...

Re: Annoying Trends.

1. How about those ads for some kind of medicine to cure a problem? They then go on to list so MANY side effects, you would probably be just as well off to stick with your original single ailment! One medicine lists "compulsive gambling" as one of your possible freebies! 2. How about TV a...

Re: Annoying Trends.

Car dealers can be such snakes. It's not surprising that accuracy and ethics go out the window when you are trying to sell high dollar merchandise (vehicles). 1. "We'll pay off your current vehicle no matter how much you owe." They sure will. They will be glad to cut a check to the origina...

GAO sketchy buyers fail 72X at buying internet firearms.

http://reason.com/blog/2018/01/05/gao-agents-tried-72-times-failed-to-buy The ATF says the Internet is the place where illegal people can buy firearms. The GAO used the regular internet, posing as sketchy buyers, 72 times and failed to buy any firearms. This discredits the ATF's assertions. That's ...

US Govt will sell 8,000 used 1911's during fiscal 2018.

https://www.military.com/kitup/2017/11/army-sell-surplus-1911-pistols.html The firearms sold by the designated entity will include 1903 Springfields, M1 carbines, M1 Garands, as well as the 1911's. IMHO, if they end up selling these 1911's for 95% of the cost of new ones in the civilian market, it ...

Re: Annoying Trends.

One thing that is absolutely "fingernails on the chalkboard" to me is when the younger generation states that something happened "ON ACCIDENT." Proper usage is this : things either happen "BY ACCIDENT" or "ON PURPOSE". Some new words/usage make perfect sense s...

Regarding the long wait for McFlurries at Mickey D's: A recent article in the Wall Street Journal (I could not post the link since I do not pay WSJ) detailed how social media complaints about McFlurry machines always being out of service were the biggest complaints that McDonald's was receiving.
