And no one's going to be making nasty comments about Tesla safety THIS time, as it was the result of a high speed chase in Los Angeles (of course!) after a Tesla stolen from a service center... one that ironically had already ENDED, but the thief was apparently in full flight mode.
And no, the car is not imbedded in the building in the picture below... that's just the back half wedged into the corner of the building. The moron driving managed to snap one of the better built cars in the world in HALF.
This is why the big boys are so scared of net neutrality; one guy with a web comic has been sticking it to lawsuit trolls, saved the Long Island location of Tesla's laboratory, and now has a lot more than a tweet from Elon Musk (someone else who benefitted from net neutrality).
Happy Birthday, Nikola! You weren't appreciated enough in life, so I guess we'll just have to make it up to you.
Are you being:
c) A used douchebag
d) A terrorist
e) Both C and D.
E; Because that's what people are when they set off explosive devices in other people's neighborhoods.

[Image is of such a box on the corner of Buena Vista and Paru in Alameda. And yes, I will call the APD and narc on your sorry asses, because I do not have a sense of humor at the idea of burning alive.]
Wow, nice way to flag yourself as the biggest used douche on G+; "I don't care if a million kids and a million adults including everyone I love gets gunned down , will not change my mind". Nice of you to sacrifice all of those daughters and sons, mothers and fathers, friends and family, for all of the rest of us. And for a straw man argument -- no one is saying only the government has guns, just that maybe, just MAYBE, you could keep insane people from owning guns.
In other words you are unable to let got of your penile replacement, because of some insane phobia for a government that can take you and your little
To hell with you sir. I dare say it: If you can't handle them, then you deserve to have them taken away, even if that means #repealthe2nd.
Think it can't happen? Keep it up, and watch it become inevitable in the next 20 to 30 years.
I find it disturbing that people think an object is to blame , not the person or prescribed drugs they were on. That is because Anti gun advocates are against what is convenient for them to be against, and are not against what would inconvenience them , if were banned. Doctors kill hundreds of thousand through malpractice, and the answer is to let government get involved that's responsible for killing millions. Vehicles are responsible for so much death, but since it would inconvenience their fat ass to walk then they don't blame vehicles and advocate to ban them. Or hammers, I read a report from a couple years ago that showed claw hammers killed more people then AR15's. Why don't we want to ban hammers? Why do they want to ban the only half ass defense we have against tyrannical government or an invader ? Its completely ok to be killed by an object that cannot defend the people against tyranny, but the ones that can ohhh well we need to ban those. Is that it? That's what it smells like.
I saw this talking point trotted out yet again during an argument over the IRS investigating tax exempt organizations for being political (and therefore taxable) organizations, and did some digging. It turns out that it's kinda true, but also beside the point.
Sure, the top 20% pay 70% of the total revenue that the government pulls in. Even if we only focus on the 1% we're looking at 36%. "Wow", most people would think, "that's a lot of money!"
Except it isn't when you look at how much money that 1% actually EARNS.
For example, I am a member of that 10% group paying into that 70%, and I pay nearly 42% of my income in taxes and such out of the around 200K a year our two income household pulls in.
However, income level are so compressed at the top that the 1%, even making upwards of 100 to a thousand times (or more) than I make in a year, only pay an effective tax of 16% on average.
So yeah, we need to at least double that tax rate, reduce taxes on the people who least can afford it, and make the corporate welfare queens at the top pay their fair share.
And meanwhile, stop acting all shocked that the IRS is actually doing it's job and targeting ALL 501(c)'s that are suspected of violating their tax free status.

Top level domains are that last chunk of your internet address, like .com, .net, and so on. The GOP decided since they have a TLA, why not make it into a TLD too?
It's already inducing hilarity. For example, it looks like they're filtering out any request for a domain name that includes the string "rape" in it (so grape.gop is RIGHT OUT). It's kind of like the same bizarre filter that prevented fungus lovers from registering shitake_mushroom.com for YEARS.
So, the domains are 20.16 each (get it??) and the proceeds likely go toward the Greedy Old Psycho party, so it's likely not worth it to most of us to register a domain there... though it would be hysterical if anti-GOP sites started to pop up with that TLD.
I tried some domains for shiggles:
kochsucking.gop failed, kochfellating.gop and thekochsownthe.gop succeed.
thepartyofno.gop failed, as did no.gop. banthe.gop didn't work either, nor did destroythe.gop, but foolthe.gop DID.
teabag.gop and teabagger.gop failed, but the far more descriptive and amusing teabagging.gop did.
trashthe.gop, demolishthe.gop, voteoutthe.gop, voteblue.gop, passon.gop, epicfail.gop, nobodyneedsthe.gop, pooponthe.gop (giggle... what am I, 12?), whigs.gop and alienating.gop all go through but destroythe.gop failed.
On a similarly immature front I tried "fart.gop" and got a shock... it was available, but would cost $5000.00 US. Fortunately you can save money by using farton.gop or oldfarts.gop instead.
Damn, this IS kinda fun...
After all: ...the iPhone was eventually recovered but was no longer working.
The dire, freedom-wrecking consequences of wealth disparity were discussed long ago by Adam Smith. They were the root cause of both the French and American revolutions — one of which resolved the situation with moderation, the other with pain. And the tradeoff is starkly portrayed in an article by billionaire Nick Hanauer, on Politico.
“Our country is rapidly becoming less a capitalist society and more a feudal society. Unless our policies change dramatically, the middle class will disappear, and we will be back to late 18th-century France. Before the revolution.” This kind of “smart billionaire” will be our secret weapon, in the fight for our Great Experiment to continue.
