  1. So, you trust Google instead of Amazon to protect your privacy?? I believe I've read, it's automatic, unless you specifically opt out.
  2. But I'm sure Greenday or AVB will be along any minute to tell us this hypocrisy is "different".....
  3. Well, all your privacy is being given away... for FREE, again... ...."Police officers who download videos captured by homeowners’ Ring doorbell cameras can keep them forever and share them with whomever they’d like without providing evidence of a crime, the Amazon-owned firm told a lawmaker this month. More than 600 police forces across the country have entered into partnerships with the camera giant, allowing them to quickly request and download video recorded by Ring’s motion-detecting, Internet-connected cameras inside and around Americans’ homes. https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2019/11/19/police-can-keep-ring-camera-video-forever-share-with-whomever-theyd-like-company-tells-senator/ But... but, but.... "it's cool... my security video is stored on the Cloud and I can access it anywhere on my phone"... Stupid.....
  4. Adoption of EVs is only at like 2% now... it's got a long way to go.
  5. That's kinda of a good point. We pay federal and state gas taxes that are suppose to go to road maintenance (yeah, right). So, in theory, if you have a electric car, you're not paying into keeping the roads fixed, even though you use them... If electric vehicles really grab a foothold, they're going to have to go look for additional revenue, since they'll lose it from gas/diesel.
  6. Looks like it's not playing in other areas, too: And the worse one for last, what the stock holders thought of the unveiling:
  7. It looks like Ford and GM aren't worried: Wall Street analysts are all talking about the dramatic styling of Tesla’s Cybertruck. “Tesla’s Cybertruck looks weird … like, really weird,” a Bernstein analyst says. Credit Suisse says companies like Ford and General Motors “can breathe a sigh of relief.” “We were still surprised how futuristic he went with this one and believe it may shatter his dreams,” Cowen says. Yet skeptical Tesla analysts don’t expect Cybertruck will be a serious competitor in the pickup market, with Credit Suisse saying that companies like Ford and General Motors “can breathe a sigh of relief.” Cowen analyst Jeffrey Osborne said that “Tesla appears to have rushed its launch of the Cybertruck.” “Musk has been enthusiastic about his Blade Runner inspired design for months, but we were still surprised how futuristic he went with this one and believe it may shatter his dreams,” Osborne said. https://www.cnbc.com/2019/11/22/wall-street-on-teslas-new-pickup-cybertruck-looks-weird.html
  8. Well, we now know which way the investigation is going to go. Is anyone surprised? ABOARD A U.S. GOVERNMENT AIRCRAFT (AP) — Attorney General William Barr said he initially had his own suspicions about financier Jeffrey Epstein’s death while behind bars at one of the most secure jails in America but came to conclude that his suicide was the result of “a perfect storm of screw-ups.” In an interview with the Associated Press, Barr said his concerns were prompted by the numerous irregularities at the Manhattan jail where Epstein was being held. But he said after the FBI and the Justice Department’s inspector general continued to investigate, he realized there were a “series” of mistakes made that gave Epstein the chance to take his own life. Epstein’s death ended the possibility of a trial that would have involved prominent figures and sparked widespread anger that he wouldn’t have to answer for the allegations. https://www.marketwatch.com/story/attorney-general-barr-says-epsteins-death-was-a-perfect-storm-of-screw-ups-2019-11-22?mod=home-page
  9. Tesla unveils it's Cybertruck... and it didn't go so well.... Hey Elon, nice job on those bulletproof windows, that would hold up to a 9mm round... except they broke when a metal ball was thrown at them... Also, hey Elon, who did you get to design this disaster? Some 3rd grader looking to copy a DeLorean? I wonder if Darren has his order in yet for one???? https://www.cnbc.com/2019/11/21/tesla-cybertruck-unveiled.html
  10. BTW, you need to be really careful with that type of talk around here. Some would consider it "tin foil" conspiracy, and might accuse you of nefarious deeds. Jus sayin
  11. Give the man a Gold Star... He just won the Internet!!!!
  12. They know where he got the gun, and it wasn't his father's. Los Angeles (AFP) – The teenager who gunned down two classmates at a California school last week before shooting himself used a “kit gun” that is untraceable, authorities said Thursday. In a tweet, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said the so-called “ghost gun” used by Nathaniel Berhow was assembled from parts that do not have serial numbers. He said kit guns — also known as “80 percent guns” – are sold at gun shows or can be purchased online, allowing owners to skirt California’s gun laws. Ghost guns “are sold as a kit, and you can legally buy it, assemble the weapon yourself and you have a gun that is not registered and no one knows that you have it, it’s very dangerous,” Villanueva told ABC7. Authorities are still trying to piece together what prompted the shooting, especially as Berhow had no history of troubled behavior. https://www.breitbart.com/news/california-school-shooter-used-kit-gun-authorities/
  13. Caught in New York... man, that guy can really pedal a tricycle... TUCKERTON - A suspect who triggered a multi-agency manhunt after exchanging gunfire with a borough police officer Thursday morning is in custody in New York, according to authorities. Miguel Angel Villegas, 29, of New Haven, Connecticut, was taken in to custody at Penn Station in Manhattan shortly after 8 p.m. by the United States Marshals Service and the New York City Police Department, announced Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer on Thursday night. Villegas will be charged with attempted murder, kidnapping, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a handgun for an unlawful purpose, Billhimer said. “It is my understanding that Villegas is wanted out of Connecticut. We will be seeking extradition from New York to bring him back here to Ocean County to face these charges,” Billhimer said. https://www.app.com/story/news/local/public-safety/2019/11/21/tuckerton-lockdown-armed-and-dangerous-suspect-who-shot-cop-custody/4266937002/ Hmmm, I wonder what the odds were that he had a 10 round mag??????
  14. Another dreamer, just like the closet liberal.
  15. Keep trying, I'll let you know if you get anywhere near close...
  16. More information, he was involved in a gun battle with cops after a traffic stop: LITTLE EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, NJ — A massive manhunt is continuing after a man traded gunfire with a Tuckerton police officer Thursday morning, the Ocean County prosecutor's office said. The incident began when a Tuckerton police officer pulled a vehicle over near the intersection of Route 9 and North Green Street at 10:22 a.m. The man and the police officer exchanged gunfire and the man ran off. A witness told News 12 New Jersey the man crashed, got out and started shooting. https://patch.com/new-jersey/lacey/s/gx7az/southern-ocean-schools-locked-down-amid-search-armed-person I hope he rides a bike better than he drives a car...
  17. Do you suffer from reading comprehension issues too? Which part of "when working as an employee" did you not understand? Why, are you really that worried that you're not as superior as you think you are?
  18. I wonder if it's related to this arrest yesterday in that area: ....." LITTLE EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP, NJ — A Little Egg Harbor man who is a registered sex offender has been arrested on charges he convinced another child to send him sexually explicit images, including images of the victim's genitals, the U.S. attorney's office said. https://patch.com/new-jersey/lacey/s/gx5vm/ocean-co-sex-offender-enticed-explicit-photos-child-feds https://patch.com/new-jersey/lacey/s/gx7az/southern-ocean-schools-locked-down-amid-search-armed-person
  19. I had to take them in the past, when working as an employee. I intentionally screwed around and gamed the answers. The last thing I was giving the employer is a accurate psych profile, I was there to make them (and me) money. Period.
  20. Nervous that it's a challenge to your superiority complex?
  21. There was a lot of "noise" about going after Rudy today.... Then this pops up: Someone must be getting close to being over the target.
  22. In other news, it looks like Hunter was pulling a Bill Clinton.... I hope he saved some of that Burisma money... DNA test shows Hunter Biden is father of Arkansas woman's baby DNA testing has established, “with scientific certainty,” that Hunter Biden is the father of an Arkansas baby, according to a motion filed Wednesday in Independence County on behalf of the child’s mother, Lunden Alexis Roberts. Biden, son of former vice president Joe Biden, “is not expected to challenge the results of the DNA test or the testing process,” the filing states. The baby’s “paternal grandfather, Joe Biden, is seeking the nomination of the Democratic Party for President of the United States of America,” the mother notes. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette posted a story early this afternoon about the DNA test-related court filing. Soon after, the Trump campaign tweeted out a link to the article, adding three words of its own: "Congratulations, Joe Biden!" https://www.arkansasonline.com/news/2019/nov/20/dna-test-shows-hunter-biden-father-arkansas-womans/
