‘Hard to argue against’: mandatory speed limiters come to the EU and NI
  • Come to my town. If you obey the speed limit you hit almost every light on red. Do 5-10 mph over and you hit most on green.

    If you are at a red, the light will not change most times until there is a decent amount of traffic coming from another direction. When they get closer, they will get a red and you get a green. Making them stop.

    I want to meet the idiots who designed this system.

  • Exit poll: Labour to win landslide in general election
  • I'm from the US so I'm a little confused by the statement of :

    looks set to secure the win with an estimated 410 seats - equating to an overall majority of 170

    They are going to have 410 seats or are they increasing by 410 seats?

    And explain the majority of 170 please. I'm lost.

  • After Supreme Court immunity ruling, Biden draws sharp contrast with Trump on obeying rule of law
  • He is above the law and can’t be prosecuted, but others still can be.

    Ex. he issues an order to seal team six to kill trump.

    Biden can’t be charged for that. But seal team six is still governed by the ucmj. Killing a non combatant for no reason even if the commander in chief gives the order might be a bit of a problem under the ucmj.

    There’s also the oath you take when you join the military

    “Defend the constitution of the United States of America against all enemies foreign and domestic”. Killing a political opponent might be a bit of a problem when a person actually looks at that oath.

    The seal team would probably say no for both of the above reasons. Biden couldn’t be charged but others still can be.

  • After Supreme Court immunity ruling, Biden draws sharp contrast with Trump on obeying rule of law
  • Sadly never electing another republican president isn't a real option.

    I'm not sure he's got the ability to clear the courts bench. I don't think he has the ability to do that. Even with this ruling. Be an interesting thought if he did

  • After Supreme Court immunity ruling, Biden draws sharp contrast with Trump on obeying rule of law
  • So your answer of how can Biden solve the problem of unchecked presidential power and not having Trump stand trial is to use unchecked power and kill a bunch of people.

    How exactly did this solve anything? Other then basically guaranteeing a civil war?

  • ban them sounds good on it's face. but it's a state issue of who is on the ballet.

    but here is another problem : while biden couldn't be prosecuted for issuing the order, would the order hold up in court? you know the thing would go before the supreme court. would it hold up there?

    i do like the idea though.

  • How do I verbally say 2.1 ng/kg

    I know the ng means nanogram

    But I’m curious how would I say the above line of 2.1 ng/kg

    For context I got it from this paragraph

    a lethal dose of 1.3–2.1 ng/kg in humans

    Would it be

    2.1 nanogram per kilogram?

    Also if I wanted to write that as a decimal number how would i write that?

    If I sign up on a hot air balloon ride and there is bad weather can I get my money back?

    Each of the companies that we have talked to for Hot air balloon rides have said you pay for it in advance, then if there is bad weather, you don’t get your money back. You just have to reschedule for another day. We have a friend who had to make many many many trips an hour and a half each way and each time on the way there, they would get a call to say sorry it’s too windy or some other item. It took a long time before they actually got there actual ride.

    So what I’m wondering is, is there any company out there that actually just gives a refund if you can’t take the ride because of inclement weather.? This is in the United States.

    Random alarms or sirens for tornado drills at random times is stupid.

    In the United States it used to be on the first Wednesday of each month during the summer they would run a tornado alarm. Namely it was to test the alarm system, to make sure that everything was working.

    And we knew if it was Wednesday and the first Wednesday of the month I mean. And those alarms went off we knew not to worry too much about it.

    For some genius reason they decided to run them on different days, it’s pretty much just random at this point. Which is stupid because the only thing it does is makes everybody ignore the alarm.
