HAR HAR HAR, my username was changed to Jackass. I have no objection to this, it is most certainly true, but I was not the one who changed the name. Seems someone is upset. Someone disagreed with the Master. Walk carefully.
We're all jackasses. Just like we were all Amaricans on 9/11 and we were all Charlie a few weeks ago. I'm in solidarity, je suis Jackass, whoever the fuck you are.

After dominating sales of smartphones, tablets, and other electronics, Apple is reportedly secretly designing its first car, code-named Titan. Here are some features of Apple’s rumored car:

  • Windshield features four times as many pixels as reality
  • Full vertical integration with Apple Gasoline
  • Driver prompted to sign into iCloud before each gear shift
  • Compatible with most major roads
  • Recommends new driving speeds based on user’s past favorites
  • Sleek, unobtrusive airbags
  • Cup holder
  • Windshield cracks easily, though car typically still works fine afterward
  • Sticker price of $85,000 drops to $199 with two-year Verizon contract
  • Wheels turn into rainbow pinwheels whenever car stalls
  • Lightweight but powerful enough to careen across six lanes of traffic and through guardrails of overpass
  • Comes with couple of cool Apple stickers

NY to LA. 26 Hours. 28 Minutes. With A GT-R-Powered, Dual-Control Infiniti Q50. - The Truth About Cars
I'm still reading this, but the latest Cannonball Run car has two functioning steering wheels and foot controls, a bevy of law-enforcement detection devices, and a friggin smokescreen.

‘Better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it.” I’ve always felt this way about firearms and was instantly convinced, and so ordered installation without informing my teammates. Upon their unhappy discovery of the device, we agreed upon a usage protocol that was satisfactory to all: We would only deploy the smoke dispenser to create a smoke screen if traffic behind us was at least a mile away, in daytime, and a police vehicle was in pursuit, such that we could slow the pursuit and make an escape. Three NORAD-style keyed safety switches were installed, one beside each team member. TWO such switches had to be enabled simultaneously in order to deploy the system...“The smoke generator was only used once. Effectively.”

What does that have to do with the video?
His dad should be there with his mom as his dad could scoop his ass up because his mom couldn't, and didn't. The kid just walked off. That's what it has to do with the video. You need a grown man's strength sometimes.

More of this should happen. Just because someone pays tuition does not give them any rights or entitlements other than the privledge to learn. Well that and getting drunk and trying to get laid.
I just saw this article too. No problems here with leaving children behind if they don't earn it. One of the great policy failings of the last decades.

He's kinda late to the party, so it's not some revolution. I think the next stop on the train are things such as these:

Redox Power Systems, LLC

Home fuel cells that run on natural gas. No more power grid, basically. Bloom sorta triggered it, I believe. Lots of other players are emerging.
