  1. Past hour
  2. Tesla’s are not about saving the environment; they’re about virtue signaling and the power of government subsidies bringing non-competitive products to the marketplace.
  3. Today
  4. I see the Tesla’s lined up at a nearby charging station all the time. The juice comes from a natural gas fired power station. ALL of the regional power stations in my home area use natural gas to generate energy. So....I guess I don’t understand the environmental advantage of charging up electrical cars using fossil fuel sources?

    Seen in West Virginia.
  6. I used to love weekend trips to SF as a kid. Clam chowder, soudough bread bowls, alcatraz tours, Pier 39 - all that tourist claptrap was just cool when I was a kid. I like large cities - and I really don't see any reason to be a tourist in San Francisco anymore. The food scene isn't great, the traffic options are terrible, hotel pricing is almost incomprehensibly high, and the street conditions are just third world. My dad wanted to back for a visit last year. My whole time was trying to shield my elderly dad from what SF had become in order to keep him protected and happy.

    Oh poop......

    I have been snacking on these oatmeal peanut butter and chocolate cookies recently. Really "loosens" things up.
  8. I have never played or been interested in playing a video game. I am really old.
  9. Bye, bye, Capsies. Interesting that three of the four second-round series are between division rivals. Teams that play each other often and know each other well. Only the Bruins/Hurricanes series is inter-division. On to the second round!
  10. at least you can take pictures of the sign to tweet about before you leave the building to tweet about the fire...
  11. To boldly go where every man has gone before.
  12. I guess it's all over then, we might as well give up. Seems like I have heard this crap before.
  13. Open mouth ………………. insert...….. ummmmmmmmmm
  14. And when the younger generations computers fail to work and there is no longer an internet ……………………………….. there will no longer be knowledge.
  15. A new Morning Consult/Politico poll conducted April 19-21 among 1,992 registered voters found Biden leading the president by 8 percentage points in a hypothetical matchup, 42 percent to 34 percent. Biden has a significant edge over Trump among women (17 points), millennials (22 points) and independents (10 points). The national, online survey has a 2-point margin of error. .
  16. I can't throw anything away. I have all of my old textbooks from college and even some of my father's textbooks. Electrical engineering in the tube era. I used to go to library sales and buy old science textbooks, just to read what they were saying when the books were current. Very interesting. I still have my green IBM S/360 and yellow IBM S/370 reference cards; just in case I might need them.
  17. Some years ago, my son (another Engineer) came over and noticed my data library. He asked what I had that for. I explained, painfully why. He laughed and pointed out to me that all data manuals were now on the Internet. I threw them all away. I have some reference texts and technical books I kept for nostalgia reasons. I also have one Semiconductor Physics book only for a paragraph on one page, where the recognized expert in the Semiconductor field stated why there would never be a Silicon based semiconductor. I remember this "Expert" at times.
  18. Yes. All my work for my whole career required citations.
  19. Recently at an airport awaiting my flight to board sitting in the waiting area, just for kicks, I decided to count how many people had paper reading material and how many had electronic. Got 39 people who were reading counted b4 we started to board the results are the sign of the times, only four outa the the 39 had paper, newspapers, magazines, books, the rest all electronic iPhones, iPads etc etc , heck all the outdoor magazines and books I read are available for subscription or on the net through kindle or individually ....paper book stores are a dying business and shortly they will be phased out, a thing of the past, our kids will say, remember when we were youngsters they used to have stores that sold reading material, time marches on, the technological age we now are a part of is changing the way we live ...

    Yes, she is a moron, but I’d let her have some of Dr. NPTim’s root oil medicine.
  21. Damn I really feel old. I remember when this was the game everybody was talking about.
  22. I'm stealing that saying and turning it into a meme...
