As always, paint is not infrastructure. What we need is bike lanes that are actually, physically separated from the road. While I've seen a pretty optimistic share of drivers not drive in the bike lane, there's still an unfortunately high amount of people who gladly will.

can you tell me something cool about my 2012 Nissan Rogue AWD. I've had it for a few years and I think it's really lame so something cool to use to flex against other people would be awesome

I can definitely check later. The gauge does go up to 160 mph but id be surprised if it can even go 120. Fastest I've gone in it was 90.

Oh that's fun to know. Mines at 46k right now.

I'm currently in college to go into GIS (Geographic Information Systems/Science) and lemme tell ya I think more people in 1700 would understand "cartographer" than they would today.

"Shopkeeper" would be a pretty damn good job title too compared to retail.

Not even really that but people tend to think that others have just outright stopped making maps. "Haven't we made all the maps already?" Is a common response I get when I tell them. They seem to forget about data analysis and all that.

I don't think the people in the 1700s would care

I don't think they're suggesting wikipedia currently is "best researched and sourced," just that a federated alternative wouldn't automatically solve that issue.

I once wondered aloud here about if anybody else had noticed a lot of toxic members from certain communities, only to receive replies from members in those communities claiming that it was all fine and there wasn't any toxicity. Then I'd look at their history and notice they were a very toxic person. From my limited point of view I can say there might be some credence to your statement.

All the more reason to hate the Supreme Court, I say. They're a corrupt, miserable institution that rarely accurately reflects the American consciousness. Their only saving grace is the few times they have.

Also Supreme Court precedent will be the death of us all.

Otherwise, states like Kentucky, Arkansas, and Alabama would kick Democratic candidates off the ballot non-stop.

I'm sorry, did I miss the part where Democratic candidates incited an insurrection against the Capitol?

Nobody who's looking for good coverage of anything should be reading / watching CNN anyway. The last 10-odd years have proven that all the major privately owned US networks are just total slop.

Not to mention a large amount of NFL players don't play for very long. A quick Google shows an average player career of just 3.3 years, which is ridiculously short even by modern sports standards. The average goes down depending on which position there is as well. Most other major sports have an average of 5 - 8 years for careers.

Imagine getting to the NFL and then only staying for a couple years. Sure you're set for life with that paycheck but expecting somebody who's like 24 years old at most to be able to be financially responsible with that money is just absurd.

I used to live in a fairly Republican area of the country and you're 100% correct. It's not something people watch, it's just that fox is always in the background. bars, restaurants, bowling alleys, the country club, it's the default TV channel wherever you go. If you ask to change the channel people look at you like you've gone insane.

‘I’m not ready, brother’: US man to be put to death months after botched execution attempt ( www.theguardian.com )

Kenneth Smith, 58, is facing execution by an untested method that has never before been used in capital punishment in the US. It’s a technique that has been rejected on ethical grounds by veterinarians for the euthanasia of most animals other than pigs: death by nitrogen gas.

Well that and a large majority of medical corporations refuse to provide their drugs for this purpose. That was one of the main reasons the "lethal injection cocktail" kept changing, because companies found out their drugs were in it and took legal action.

Hot take, maybe we shouldn't do state sponsored execution if they're so easy to botch huh

not to downplay the events as tragic as they are but the headline made me think this happened like, yesterday.

It's not just deciding the candidates. It's a lot less of a vote in an election (like a primary) and more of a neighborhood meeting. People give speeches, express support or disdain, and try to convince other people to support their candidate. I believe they still vote at the end, but it's not like an election where voting is the only thing you do. It's different depending on the state, but that's how it generally works in Iowa.

Edit; also important to note that caucus has different meanings depending on where it happens. I.e. if it happens in Congress then it's a meeting of peers with similar backgrounds who then vote or decide on policy positions.

When it comes to arcade racers people seem to either forget or just don't know about trackmania games. They aren't perfect by any means but id certainly consider them among the best

Honestly I might check it out but they rarely seem to play games I'm interested in (first person shooters) and their management style gives me the ick. Very very puritanical over the most minor things.

This is a good video on the topic While I personally can very much see why they've banned some runners, I just can't see why for others. I don't agree with everything the youtuber says but it's very compelling.

In short, the organization just seems very quick to blow minor mishaps way out of the water. They seem to enjoy treating their customers and their fanbase as children, and instead of letting people work out their own differences as the adults they are, they like to step in and handle it themselves. Sometimes this goes well, but most of the time it doesn't.

Basically, the way they run the event just tends to cause drama and it doesn't look like they'll be changing anytime soon. I enjoy the runners and the runs, but the event organizers clearly have a lot of issues going on. There's a reason you just don't see this kind of drama with ESA.

Why are redditors like this?

I made a post on r/civ (Civilization games subreddit) showing a really funky shaped randomly generated river I saw and most comments were fine but one guy was convinced that I went through the comparatively monumental effort of opening the map editor and changing the river for karma, as opposed to just starting the game and...

He then went on linkedin claiming it was all fake and that people were "attacking him for who he loved." I'm sure some people were attacking him for being gay but I think most were attacking him for having sex in the senate hearing room.

"degenerates?" Really? Are you 14 years old? We can use other words that aren't neo nazi rhetoric, thanks.

Also:

GTA doesn't have that so I made up my own scenarios.

Congrats. You're playing a sandbox game how it was meant to be played.

bermuda ,
@bermuda@beehaw.org avatar

Agreed. 3, SA, and VC were so successful that when similar original games came out, most people just called them "GTA clones." Just like with Doom back in the 90s, where any FPS was a Doom clone.

I can tell from these 6 words the only game with a semblance of sandbox elements you can think of is Minecraft.

Since GTA 3.

GTA is both a narrative series and a sandbox game series but is primarily a sandbox series. In every GTA game you can just do whatever you want once you get past the first 1 or 2 boxed-in missions. I think GTA V is the one that takes the longest to get you going.

How to get cigarette smell out of my apartment?

So my roommate is a habitual cigarette smoker. He doesn't smoke indoors (thankfully) but he does smoke about every other night outdoors. I don't think he realizes that when he's done smoking the smell sort of... lingers on him and his clothes. Last night after he was done he was in the kitchen for a bit cooking. I came in this...

I've only heard of that if you don't have something below the mattress
