General Discussion  - 
 
I've just been on the receiving end of a road rage incident because people don't know the law when it comes to merging. A car was driving about 20m behind me in the left lane, I was in the right lane, when we reached a merge area, the car sped up next to me and wanted to push in. At this time it's important to note that the left lane ended, he had to cross the dotted line and enter the right lane as in the first figure below. There were no cars behind me and traffic was bumper to bumper in front of me. I chose to hold my ground, he could have changed lanes at any time when he was behind me and had ample time to do so. but instead he sped up to get in front of me.
At the next set of lights, he got out of his car, opened my door and threatened to punch me in the face because "it's the law", then he went on to tell me that there are even signs on busses that say so. I tried to explain that the sign on busses refers to giving way to busses but he disagreed, angrily.. well, I'm just shocked. If you're driving on the road then you need to know the law. You also need to respect your fellow driver, don't drive like an idiot and don't push in, we're all here to use the road.

I have his tirade on dash cam, and apparently he has my "illegal " driving on his, along with his tailgating and dummy spit. I hope he asks someone what the law is, takes 5 minutes to take a look online, or better still, goes to the police to complain. I just wish I was there to see the response.
Contains common questions and answers about merging.

I was driving to work this morning and my front window started to fog up, which was odd because I had the ac on (28deg at 7:30). Turns out it was condensation on the outside of the window. That's what 90% humidity does.

Maybe this is affecting you +Adam Culf​
Since Google started rolling out the over-the-air (OTA) updates for Android 5.0 Lollipop to Nexus devices, many users have been regularly checking for a system update – many Australians, to no avail. Telstra users are reporting that the update is being blocked, even on phones that were not sold by the carrier. The issue is affecting Nexus 4 and Nexus[Read More...]

From the Nebula Award-nominated short story, “They’re Made Out of Meat” by Terry Bisson:

"They're made out of meat."

"Meat?"

"Meat. They're made out of meat."

"Meat?"

"There's no doubt about it. We picked up several from different parts of the planet, took them aboard our recon vessels, and probed them all the way through. They're completely meat."

"That's impossible. What about the radio signals? The messages to the stars?"

"They use the radio waves to talk, but the signals don't come from them. The signals come from machines."

"So who made the machines? That's who we want to contact."

"They made the machines. That's what I'm trying to tell you. Meat made the machines."

"That's ridiculous. How can meat make a machine? You're asking me to believe in sentient meat."

"I'm not asking you, I'm telling you. These creatures are the only sentient race in that sector and they're made out of meat."

A little while later:

"They actually do talk, then. They use words, ideas, concepts?"

"Oh, yes. Except they do it with meat."

"I thought you just told me they used radio."

"They do, but what do you think is on the radio? Meat sounds. You know how when you slap or flap meat, it makes a noise? They talk by flapping their meat at each other. They can even sing by squirting air through their meat."

"Omigod. Singing meat. This is altogether too much. So what do you advise?"

"Officially or unofficially?"

"Both."

"Officially, we are required to contact, welcome and log in any and all sentient races or multibeings in this quadrant of the Universe, without prejudice, fear or favor. Unofficially, I advise that we erase the records and forget the whole thing."

"I was hoping you would say that."

"It seems harsh, but there is a limit. Do we really want to make contact with meat?"

"I agree one hundred percent. What's there to say? 'Hello, meat. How's it going?'
