Its ridiculously sad that we have to have laws to 'allow' our children to walk to and from school without being arrested because a bunch of ultra-liberal nut jobs with no kids decide to call the cops on a 6 and 10 year old walking home from the park.

Why is it that people with no kids are the ones who think they know all about how to raise kids?

HINT: YOU DON'T, regardless of how many books you've read or classes you've attended.

A victory for the Free Range parenting movement. A loss for overzealous cops.

I had a Wikipedia edit reverted and an argument with the douche who runs that bot that did it ... because he found some newspaper that disagrees ...

Best part, the change in question? The year of graduation for someone I went to high school with and stood by during graduation. Good job wikipedia, continuing to get things wrong because you're editors are just ignorant assholes.

Yes, I pointed to the schools records (all online) which show the year he graduated properly ...

Visual Studio Code is supposed to be a visual studio like IDE that runs on Windows, OS X and Linux ... and it does run on them ... and they took it so far as to make it full blown crappy Linux app ... complete with doing nothing more than opening a JSON file in the text editor when you choose preferences from the menus ...

Can someone please explain to me why in this day and age ... we still don't have some sort of buzzer/siren on TV/DVR/Whatever remotes yet so we can find them quickly when lost?

I understand OLD remotes, but as an example the AppleTV remote is bluetooth with infrared for other devices, no reason it can't have a freaking finder-tone that can be triggered by the AppleTV (or any other bluetooth device like an iPhone or Mac, don't expect them to support Android/WinMo phones).

I can not be the only person who regularly has to go searching for the remote when my 2 year old runs off with it and sticks it in his toy box or something.

Why are people so excited over Xbox One DVR and Streaming? FRAPs has been capable of recording for ... well, probably since before there was a Xbox, certainly before the 360. Since both PS4 and Steam (PS3 too?) have done streaming for a while I fail to see why everyone is drooling over the poor Xbox One version.

IF it let me display TV on the TV AS WELL as stream a game to a PC, I might find it more useful, but as it is now it requires me to disconnect the cable box from the xbox and plug it into the TV in order to do both. Thats uber lame.

Dear Google,

You are seriously starting to suck.  Not only do I now get video ads next to my youtube videos ... they have freaking audio with them.  W   T   F is wrong with you?  Why the hell would I want a commercial playing audio over my video?  Why are are you serving video/audio outside of the video itself, wasn't that already sufficiently obnoxious?

Next on the list ... fix your damn feed back link so that when I click it, and it requires me to sign in for some weird reason since ... everything else recognizes me as signed in ... but I login on the popup ... it goes away ... and nothing happens ... click feedback ... popup for signing in again.

Can you work a little bit less on cramming more crap javascript into a document display format and a little more time making your existing buggy apps no break.

Can some one please explain to me why Java date/time is so horrible?  I can't understand how it can be ... in its new and improved version (8) ... so absolutely horrible?

How is it that dealing with time in C on Posix is easier/clearer/cleaner?

Recent electric cars put me on the edge of wanting, certainly accepting all electric drive. Porsche just put me in the market.

0-500kph in 3.5, 250km range, and above all 80% charge in 15 minutes. We are rapidly approaching the point where gasoline is no longer required and you don't have to worry too much about range since gas station times are becoming much more identical

Not Porsches' prettiest car, but it'll do until they get it stuffed in more traditional body designs.
In presenting the Mission E at the IAA in Frankfurt, Porsche is introducing the first all-electrically powered four-seat sports car in the brand's history.

Awesome staff, always friendly and helpful. Has ethanol free gas at all pumps and sell fishing licenses on site, which boaters should appreciate. Lots of snacks and drinks, a few of the essential camping and boating supplies. Plenty of pre-made foods like small pizza, sausage biscuits, hot boiled peanuts. A few toys for younger kids. Live minnows and night crawlers, all the essential fishing supplies if you're in a hurry and forget to bring something. Not a large selection of options, but the basics are covered well enough to save you a trip to Cary 99% of the time. Kiddie rods/reel combos as well as a small selection for adults. I've been visiting Jordan Lake for about 10 years now, last 5 with my boat and they've always been friendly and helpful though admittedly at this point they also recognize me coming in the door so that might help :) The only bad thing I can say is that this station is the most popular one as its the most convenient when coming from the East side of the lake (i.e from Cary and Raleigh) so it can get a bit crowded, but I've never waited more than just a few minutes for a gas pump to open up, even on a summer weekend. This is the only station I will go to on the lake at this point, I've never gone wrong by stopping here.

If you forgot some fishing gear and don't want to run home or into town, then its okay to go here, otherwise, go across the street to Cruizers. The staff is very rarely friendly. I've spent a lot of time on Jordan Lake over the past 5 years or so, and these guys always seem like its a chore to have me buy from them. They do have live minnows, and a good stock of fishing supplies and the few bits of camping and boating gear that I always end up forgetting on my first few trips for the season. I don't buy gas here so I'm not sure if its Ethanol free or not, station across the street is ethanol free for certain. The staff just makes me want to avoid stopping here often enough to buy gas.

Excellent service! I placed a late night order via paypal ... and messed it up horribly in my sleep deprived state, sent them an email about it as soon as I realized what I had done. Within 30 minutes of them opening the next morning I had an email with what steps to take, basically make another order with the missing parts and proper shipping selection and they'd straighten it all out and refund me what was due. Placed the order, including additional parts I wasn't sure I needed ... with a note that I didn't really want those parts if I didn't need them. Within a couple hours I got confirmation of what I was intending to order, and the order shipped that day, with the right parts and a refund for the bits I shouldn't have ordered. Got my package the next morning (I ordered on Thursday and wanted to fly on Saturday) via FedEx over night, everything was well packed and more or less perfect. I tried Hobby Wireless because I was having issues with another company who claimed to have things in stock but didn't and couldn't fix their website to show the correct stock status, and nearly missed the weekend flights because of it; Hobby Wireless saved my Saturday (this morning!) flights and gave me a great FPV system. Excellent customer service and fast shipping.

Good food, friendly service. The menu is a mix of the typical favorites, but with a non-traditional twist such as the bison chili, its all great food. I've never liked catfish in my life, but this place has good clean catfish. Everyone loved the catfish bites appetizer, even me! Indoor and outdoor seating in the shade. The staff was very friendly towards us both times I've visited with an infant or two in toe both times, always made sure the kids had what we needed. The menu changes every so often to keep things mixed up. If you're going to be looking for food west of Jordan Lake after a good day on the lake, this is where I would go.
