Munich at 1.92? Really? Wow.

This makes no fucking sense. Even Frankfurt at 0.92 is an eye-opener, but Munich.....

Can't tow much with Prius.

required because when cars strike people the survival rate of the person hit goes way up if the front of the car has...


Can you please cite any evidence for those two assertions, i.e. the alleged requirement and the alleged safety data? Your jalopnik link shows a photo of a low slung Ferrari, and those cars remain on the road. In general, a higher impact point (e.g. an SUV hood) poses a much worse risk to children, and probably adults also.


As I understand the requirement is not for the absolute height of the hood over the road but for the amount of vertical space between the hood and the engine. The rationale being that at certain collision speeds pedestrians tend to hit their heads smack in the middle ofthe hood. The remedy is either to have a hood which automatically shoots up (some cars do that) or simply higher hood which provides the necessary "crumple zone".

Sports cars can get away with having lower hoods because they either have engines in the rear or tucked inside the wheelbase.

GM should rename the truck to GMC Sierra DENIAL. Or Goran_K could just get DENIAL as a vanity plate.
Ford also has an SUV I would like to rename: the Ford EXTINCTION.


Do you have any more fresh jokes from 2006?

"The state is on a hiring binge to fill what eventually will be hundreds of new government positions by 2019 intended to bring order to the legal pot economy, from keeping watch on what’s seeping into streams near cannabis grows to running background checks on storefront sellers who want government licenses. Thousands of additional jobs are expected to be added by city and country governments."

Yay, more tax moochers! With generous pensions, of course.

So basically the people who pay the most (via property taxes, fares and soon bridge tolls) for that shitty train are getting the least.

If there were a central registry of gun sales someone buying so many guns and so much ammo so quickly could have raised a flag to go question the guy and check him out.


And? They knock on his door and ask why he has 20 guns and he tells them he likes to "collect them all". What's the next move would be? Follow him everywhere 24x7?

Not true: there are some of these floating around on civilian market. You'll have to shell out north of $200K to get one though.

listening to Krugman in the past year would be a mistake.

Listening to Peter Schiff for the past 5 years would be an ass reaming of epic proportion.


5 years? More like 10.

If true - heads need to roll now. The chief of that hotel's security and the chief of LV police should be the first on the chopping block.

So it took them a whole fucking hour to get to active shooter in the hotel even though they knew his location since literally the first minute he opened fire.

And I'm not buying the "breakdown in communication" story: security guards have radios and cell phones. Does anybody for a second believe that a security guard who was shot in the leg would maintain a complete radio silence for 15-20 minutes? Would anybody wait for 20 minutes to call 911 after getting shot?

The note pad and pen in his room was him working out the trigonometry to hit the tanks. He as was trying to make a big BOOM for somebody or someone on the ground to do worse than he started.


It would require much more serious weaponry than what he had on hand.

I'm too lazy to look it up, but is there some sort of exterior fire suppressant system that could have stopped this in this type of neighborhood? Seems like there would be something you could do. Couldn't be connected with the city's water supply as it would likely cause a massive drop in pressure for a system like that to be effective I suppose. Just feels a bit ridiculous that an entire neighborhood could be burned like this. This is late 1800's Chicago fire type shit. Seems like it shouldn't happen with today's technology.


I wonder if stone buildings with metal roofs and metal shutters would've survived this type of event.

Asia Argento at age 21 got raped into a BJ, here is her reenactment.

http://deadline.com/2017/10/asia-argento-harvey-weinstein-scarlet-diva-scene-sexual-harassment-video-1202185900/


First comment there:

"asia argento’s name is the first on the petition supporting polanski. if she’s a rape victim, what the heck is her name doing on that petition??? somebody ask her."

Is her name really on pro-Polansky petition?

So you are advocating simplifying the US tax system and adding the Netherlands style 21% VAT tax?


Where? All I'm saying that apparently the reduction of corporate tax and number of brackets has some value to other than "trumpkins and eeeevil republicans" and not as useless and meaningless like that "multizillionaire guy" seems to suggest.

It MAY have value if it's done along with other coordinated moves as well.


Right. But for some reason it's just rejected outright. I wonder what that reason is...

The tax systems aren't comparable in execution or intent so the changes aren't comparable.

Because the only proposals that Republicans will back are designed to reward the wealthy. It's never done correctly to help jobs.

Ft Wayne - if it's such a liberal shittole, why do you stay?

I scrolled through your recent comments and about 70% of them are bashing on CA and its politics and especially "the gays". If it triggers you so badly why don't you leave? Life is too short to be constantly triggered like this.

Wow, @Patrick, you're moving up in this world: they've assigned a second Russian operative to your forum. This one, unfortunately, can't write in English and is unable to switch on Cyrillic keyboard on his device....So it's more like 1.5 Russian operatives. Nonetheless, still a progress.

10. While having a roof over your head is a human right, being hip is not. Even during times of unprecedented price increases, there are often bargains to be had in places that are a little less trendy. Some, but not all, of the complaints about affordability come from people who are simply frustrated that they can’t live in the stylish neighborhood of their choice.


This. The rest is BS.

CA needs a new metropolis in the north. Move jobs there and create it from scratch.


I like this idea. Water is needed for a new metropolis, and the largest river in the north seems to be the Klamath, which empties at the tiny down of Klamath (pop 779):



Let's all move there and buy up the place, develop it, and bring jobs there. We would get super rich through land appreciation.

Who's in?


Careful: they have an Indian tribe there. Yurok, IIRC.
