Diversity is well and good... But why not do Patreon instead of a website that doesn't work on Android? They just got iOS and that also should have been there from the beginning.

No, it wasn't a news report or commentary.  It was used in part of a profit making TV show as stock footage.  They knowingly and intentionally removed his watermark because they knew they were doing wrong.

What? These are not tears. I was just cutting Onions while cleaning my dusty shelves when a bright ray of sun was reflected off of a car driving by and watching random youtube videos.

Yeah. That's it. Totes it.

1. Line Jumpers/Queue. Yeah. Pretty much these people are pretty bad. Happened to me, and I said, "Yeah no. No cuts. Go on and get back there." I am fairly convinced that the kids that do this, grow up to the be the adults that jump ahead in the "Right turn only lane" to get past the traffic.

2. Seat Savers. Ehh... I show up early enough most times to not have this be an issue.

3. Tall Sitters. What kind of theater are you going to? One built in the 1970's? Stadium seating has made this a non issue, IMO.

4. Open Sneezers. I think carrying around a little spray bottle and spritzing people with water would be a suitable punishment for basically anything you think they are doing is annoying. Limit three spritzes.

5. Dog Poop Leavers. Lady right outside my house has a dog and it poops right out in front of my door gosh dang near every day. I got a shovel, and I toss it into her porch area of her apartment. It is winter now, but in the summer... Whoo boy is there going to be poo everywhere on her porch.

Sometimes you just like watching someone who knows what they are doing, doing the things they know.

+Scott Anderson I am not saying, 'don't use a formation building substrate', I am saying 'keep in mind what you are doing to your structure that will outlast your decades use of a single set of stairs'. Yes, set those steps on stringers as well as possible-- but wood for the steps only lasts so long and you don't want the stringer wood breaking off when you replace them eventually-- which is what I have had happen replacing a more modern stairway versus the 90ish year old home I owned which used penetrating fasteners only. (FYI I gooped the hell out of the new steps in the old house. I regret doing that to the future owner which someday decades from now has to redo the steps after my work. Sorry for the goop. I did it right in the newer house because I was given the resources and time to do an excellent job. I had to tear out more of the stairs than I felt necessary because I could not reuse the stringers.)

I realize that they are doing a good thing. I think this is amazing.

But...

I can't help but think that this just is playing on the novelty of the whole ordering in ASL, and that they won't have much patronage after a few months. And that is really unfortunate.

Guess I have to buy a Tesla E when it is out now... 
As some of you may know, I recently published a cartoonist's review of my Tesla Model S. In the second half of the review, I asked Elon Musk to donate toward the completion of a Nikola Tesla Museum, a project I've been working on since 2012. Within a few hours of posting my review, ...

I still think that hybrid slot car design would be a far more efficient means of moving massive amounts of people around.

No, really. Think about it. It is all the convenience of a car, with all the benefits of mass transportation, and so very few of the downsides of both.

Electric cars are great (And getting better!) but it is still difficult to go across the country in them. Even if you went from Tesla SuperCharger to the next, it would take you quite a long time. Both in the charging, and also in the sleeping aspect since you can only stay alert for so long. The driverless car solves one of these issues--staying awake--but the other is charging those pesky batteries.

A few of you might be saying, "Well just swap out the battery like I do in my cordless drill!" and the battery swapping concept is a GOOD idea. I think that would help a vast majority of people seriously consider electric cars if they were in place. Because then, well, you wouldn't need to plan out where you want to go based around the charging ports. You could just drop a battery when you saw a swapping station. But that still requires stopping at a battery station to do the swaps.

What if you never needed to stop?

That is what the "Slot Car" concept brings to the table. By having the charging/guiding being taken care of physically--unable to have a software glitch that would send you over an embankment--then you don't need that big spinning Magic Box (LIDAR?) on top, and you can charge from the same physical connection, making the car go potentially forever.

Then, with clever software, you could link up in groups of people going to similar places so that jetstream effect would make each car require less energy to keep going. Making them even more efficient.

You could even deliver data such as high speed internet through the physical connection. So, no more cell reception required in those really remote areas. You would have a 'wired' connection going into the ground. This is also cheaper to do as well.

And then finally, since everyone is in their own car, you can do things that you can't do on a train such as smoke or listen to your own music, or eat really smelly cheese if you are so inclined. It is your own car, do what you want!

So who is in? +Elon Musk? I hear you like new groundbreaking/world changing technologies. And you already have a pretty kick ass electric car...

I prefer the monthly model. My reasons are that if you are on a per video basis, you will rush to get as many videos out as possible versus getting quality ones out.

Also, you can do other things that do not need a video to count towards your video count. Such as a podcast or a newsletter.

I do not think there is any thrill that can go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success... Such emotions make a man forget food, sleep, friends, love, everything. -- Nikola Tesla

I don't know why all the negative feedback here... This place is great. I admit that the other customers are insane sometimes, but that's not the fault of this Chipotle. Also call ahead or order online. They always are ready by the time I get here and I live 10 minutes away.

Fantastic, home style cooking. The breakfasts are amazing and really well priced. Staff are attentive and friendly. Never had anything even remotely negative here. You have to try the steak and eggs. It is so amazingly good. Conveniently next to a laundromat, so wash your clothing and get some breakfast!

Always a treat to go here, which I forget is tucked away in a little shopping plaza. Everything is sliced fresh (the bread, and the meat) right before your eyes, so the meat is always very high quality. The large is enough for two people easily, which is how I usually convince someone else to go with me here. I haven't had anything but the subs, but the cookies look fantastic.

I have been to this location about 4 times. I cannot recall the exact number, but I did come here before and my experiences were mediocre at best. PROS: The shop is fairly quiet, with the range at the back being well insulated with doors and thick walls. You pay a single 'rate' for however long you plan to shoot, however much you want to shoot. Well ventilated range. CONS: Small shop, small selection. You are constantly bumping into people if there are more than 15 people there. Staff can be a bit rude at times, preferring to sell you things rather than handle questions or chit-chat. New shooters will REQUIRE a $25 dollar class to be taken on a Wednesday between 6 and 8pm. This class is First Come First Served, and there are only so many seats. Parking is an absolute joke. There are 4 spots in front of the store, 99% of the time they are full. Forcing you to park down the street, on a residential street. First time was for when I was taking my concealed permit. I was with a class, so I had no idea what I was in for. The staff stayed out of our way for the most part, but they did try and sell everything in the shop to every single student there. I took my test (passed) and then stuck around to shoot for a bit and left. Second time was with two other individuals and it was a fairly straight forward. Pay, shoot, leave. Nobody really interacted with us, but I don't remember anything positive about it either. This most recent time was just the last straw really. Went there with two new shooters, and basically was told that a $25 dollar class that was held on Wednesday was required for new shooters. Really? $50 for two people who have never shot before--and this is their first experience? Fifty-bucks?!! I have my permit, I have shot many times before--NOPE! Didn't matter. Okay, I get it that you had a guy shot on the range in August, but have people sign a form... Don't make them shell out triple the rate for the range their first time there. Just silly. Will not be back. Ever.

Excellent. Every single bit of this was perfect. The Bento Box are perfectly sized so that you can eat the entire thing and not take a nap at work. I will be coming back for lunch fairly regularly.
