Thirteen people have died because they walked away from their car without shutting it off, thinking that if they took the keyless fob away the car would turn off on its own.

Let that sink in for a moment, then feel better that you're more intelligent than they were.
Ten of the world's biggest automakers were sued on Wednesday by U.S. consumers who claim they concealed the risks of carbon monoxide poisoning in more than 5 million vehicles equipped with keyless

+Jimmy Brokaw​ so in that case the car would not stop and you would die a horrible death because the car would not auto shut down ;)
+Lisa Straanger​ so basically RTFM ;)

Not a big fan of political correctness per se, but that's the name of the mountain. It's always been Denali, it was just my schoolbooks that called it McKinley.
 
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says he's changing the name of the tallest mountain in North America from Mount McKinley to Denali.

DCA is DCA and will always be DCA, unless everyone switches to four-letter codes, in which case it will be KDCA.

Spent the day driving this through West Virginia, taking turns behind the wheel with +Stephanie May​. Not nearly as fast as my car, but at least as much fun on a nice day like this.

As Abraham Lincoln once said, don't believe everything you read on the internet.
A couple of days ago, a user on Reddit posted photos of a Wonder Woman lunchbox that was allegedly banned by a school. But was it true?

+Al Middleton​ in those mandatory journalism classes I would want them to learn all of the logic/argument fallacies like Straw Man, ad hominem, etc. Actually, they should teach all of this in civics classes so people would know how to be responsible voters

It's a beautiful day, and we took a beautiful 1991 Miata through the mountains to a new brewpub that opened in June, +Berkeley Springs Brewing Co​. This is pretty good beer!

Die Antwoord have some interesting hits. Pairing it with a Teletubbies compilation is pure genius

My trivia night does dirty jokes to break ties, and I'm running low after winning several ties. Who's got a good dirty joke? The best ones aren't one liners, but aren't extremely long either...

A little girl goes to see Santa.
"Ho ho ho!  What do you want for Xmas little girl?"
"I want a Barbie, and I want a GI Joe."
Santa looks confused.
"Don't you mean Barbie and Ken?"
"No, I want a Barbie, and I want a GI Joe."
"But Barbie comes with Ken, sweetie."
"No.  Barbie comes with GI Joe.  She fakes it with Ken."

It's just going through a phase.  It will grow out of it.

Introduction
It's Jimmy.  I've got a lot of circles because people know me for different things.  You might think of me as a professional skier, computer hacker, board game enthusiast, or one of a number of other things.  Doesn't matter, if you know me, add me.

I have a large number of circles, but with the advent of Collections, I use those instead. Almost everything I post is to a collection; if you don't like posts like that, just unfollow that collection. Once in a blue moon I'll post something truly public, but that's rare. If I post something privately but not to a collection, it's probably been restricted to friends, family, or geographic area. The only non-public collection I have is my Politics Collection, which I curate membership of. While I enjoy a good political debate, I prefer to limit the debate to people who can do so rationally and calmly, and for professional reasons, I don't include coworkers.
Bragging rights
First man to ever juggle flaming torches while skiing down a double-back diamond. First Navy Sailor to get Marine Corps Martial Arts qualified. Been defenestrated since 2003.
