The FMCSA admits that a new rule requiring speed limiters on heavy vehicles will put independent trucks and owner-operators like me out of business and that there is evidence that it will make the highways less safe but they are charging ahead anyway. This is a perfect example of large corporations buying our government. The American Trucking Association, which only represents the largest trucking companies in the country, is pushing for this in order to take away the competitive advantage of the small trucking companies and independent drivers.

When this rule passes, and it will, expect more traffic and more accidents on the nation's highways. Next time you get stuck behind a slow truck in the left lane taking 10 minutes to pass another slow truck don't blame the driver, thank your government.
Last week the news broke that the FMCSA is finally ready to create their proposed rule requiring speed limiters to be equipped on all heavy vehicles. This week…

Gizmodo: A Data Scientist Crunched the Numbers to Find the Most Heavy Metal Word in the English Language. http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIwxOmIrSw
The primary purpose of speaking and writing is to sound as cool as possible at all times, and now a data scientist has given us the specific keywords we need to impress our peers, no matter where we are. In a post on Degenerate State, the scientist took the lyrics off DarkLyrics.com,“the largest metal lyrics archive on the web,” from a database of 222,623 songs by 7,634 bands to analyze the most and least metal words. Comparing the DarkLyrics dat...

I think we can all agree Netflix is too big to fail now.

Digital Trends: Update: Netflix up and running after Saturday evening outages. http://google.com/newsstand/s/CBIwoYuC1iw
Netflix is down. This is not a drill. The end is nigh! Of course, the problem seems to be limited to the web player, so why don't we all take a deep breath?
