Re: It flew 8 minutes and achieved an altitude of 3,500 feet

That's it? Better battery technology? Why didn't the battery manufacturers think of that? Maybe while they are developing it, they can solve the problem of people dying? It should take 5 years. Eventually it will be worked out, feminine histrionics about "people dying" notwithstanding. Over time, h...

Re: DeSantis voted against federal hurricane aid

Biden should have told him to go fuck himself.

Re: From the "Who came up with that idea" department

Help me out here. Who is the one handicapped parking place that is reserved for people calling in orders and waiting in their cars while a store employee fills it and brings their order to them at their car intended for? Well, there's nothing I'm aware of in the code, unless it counts towards their...

Zero issues. I'm guessing it's not the government Joe. Or China.

That pretty much ends any hope of reasonable conversation right there.

Funny - I was thinking that the Feds should send a relief package to Florida consisting of a couple of planeloads of illegal aliens to help with the cleanup.

And nothing else.

Re: It flew 8 minutes and achieved an altitude of 3,500 feet

Did you know a little boy who watched the Wright Brothers demonstrate the Wright Flyer to the navy lived to watch Neil Armstrong land on the moon? I only hope a particular 9 year old boy who watched the entire Apollo 11 mission in utter fascination lives long enough to see us do the same thing on M...

Re: It flew 8 minutes and achieved an altitude of 3,500 feet

The first Wright brothers flight lasted 12 seconds and covered all of 180 feet. Now we land autonomous vehicles on Mars. Throughout the history of technological progress, there have always been finger-waggers standing on the sidelines saying it can't be done. They are almost always wrong in the long...

I just can't seem to get worked up about it - seems like such a small and petty thing to be upset about.

Re: From the "Who came up with that idea" department

They have another 25 or so spots. I doubt the ADA requires handicapped pickup spots, but you know what? I wouldn't doubt it. It does not. The rules are different for parking lots vs covered or indoor parking, but it's basically all about number of spots - for every x parking spaces, y have to be ha...
