SeaJ,

He paid people to go to his first presidential run announcement so why change things up?

Large chunk of Wyoming's Teton Pass road collapses; unclear how quickly it can be rebuilt (apnews.com)

A large chunk of a twisting mountain pass road collapsed in Wyoming, authorities said Saturday, leaving a gaping chasm in the highway and severing a well-traveled commuter link between small towns in eastern Idaho and the tourist destination of Jackson....

People serve those billionaires and those people are far from rich. In fact a lot of them have to live in subsidized housing because housing is completely unaffordable. It kind of sucks for those people. Other people have to commute from cities that might be in Idaho which means their long commute is now doubled.

SeaJ,

Well it is very pretty and has some of the best skiing in the country. And they’re are a ton of other millionaire and billionaires there so you can compare dick sizes with them.

SeaJ,

At least he reported it this time. That is a new thing for him.

SeaJ,

More likely he is doing this so Congress stops bugging him for taking bribes.

SeaJ,

Exactly.

But I don’t really see it changing because it would almost certainly require a constitutional amendment. Any congressional legislation that carried a punishment would almost certainly be shot down by the court itself.

SeaJ,

A 3% cap is absurdly low. While people are saying “don’t threaten me with a good time,” this also means there are going to be fewer new units. Although considering how few units many CA cities have been adding (some have even removed units), it might not have too much of an effect on that regard. I would could see maintenance on existing units dropping and many more unofficial units popping up.

Well if you recall, there was a year where general inflation was far above 3%. Inflation is also not uniform and can be higher in some cities than others. And this is not inflation + 3%, it is 3%. Many people also have to borrow to build which means they are not simply paying the rate of inflation but what the banks are charging to borrow. Currently that is around 7%. So anyone looking to build units is looking at a negative return if they borrow to do it which means they simply will not.

Make no mistake, I do agree with caps but something that is not static makes more sense. Having it a static rate will lead to large unintended consequences.

SeaJ,

Fuck renters. Fuck them right in the ear. They can all go eat a dick.

So you hate people who cannot afford to plunk down thousands of dollars to get a place. Cool. /s

SeaJ,

Not sure how their unhinged comment is being upvoted.

SeaJ, (edited )

In English we use the term landlord. Renter is generally understood to mean someone who rents.

SeaJ,

This has been known for a while now, hasn’t it? Unless it is as cheap as current feed, farmers likely aren’t going to use it.

SeaJ,

Another old dude who looks great is William Shatner. He is 93 but I honestly would guess 50s or 60s by looking at him.

Washington man arrested after fatally shooting teen who had BB gun (www.usatoday.com)

Myers, who says he’s a licensed security guard, was sitting in his car Wednesday to conduct “overwatch” while his son trains because “he has seen numerous crimes occur” in the parking lot, according to the probable cause statement....

SeaJ, (edited )

Myers said that when he first saw the boys, he thought one of them had a “Glock” by his side and that they were about to commit an armed robbery.

He seems to be okay with open carry so I wonder why he thought they were going to commit a robbery.

The 17-year-old shot and killed was identified as Hazrat Ali Rohani

Oh. He was brown.

Also, this guy is why an armed society is absolutely not a polite society. More people carrying around guns means more dipshits carrying them.

SeaJ,

Kent is not the best school district…

SeaJ,

Shithead Tucker Carlson did a piece a while ago fear mongering that militant trans people were arming themselves and that they should not be allowed to.

SeaJ,

Maybe that is compared to the current fuel efficiency standard? The current standard for cars is 46 mpg.

SeaJ,

People without garages are fine if they are in a house. You just need an outlet within reach of your parking spot. Apartment dwellers do need a solution. Orange Charger sells level 1 and 2 chargers targeted toward apartment complexes. The systems cost $600 (level 1) or $750 (level 2) and they deal with the payments. The power company in my city has level 2 chargers throughout the city that are near apartment complexes.

As far as affordability, a used 3 year old Bolt can be bought for $16k. My state has added on another discount which brings the cost down another few thousand. Considering you will save about $1000 per year in gas costs, that’s a pretty good deal.

SeaJ,

You can change the amperage. That is actually one thing that makes people think they need a level 2 charger. Many charging cables that the dealership gives you default to 6A instead of 12A so people get like 16 miles charge overnight instead of over 30.

SeaJ,

The move to EVs will not happen overnight. Expect it to take a few decades.

Texas’ (and California’s) issues are due to massive deregulation. Having extra capacity than is necessary esta into profits. So companies try to only have as much infrastructure as absolutely necessary. Additional AC use from “100 year” heatwaves (that are now happening every few years) were not really something they planned for and since they do not have the extra capacity, there are issues. They basically just have to properly model it…or have a more regulated market that makes sure there is additional capacity.

SeaJ, (edited )

For American manufacturers, Chevy has the Bolt (next year), the Blazer, and the Equinox. Ford has the Mustang Mach E. Lucid has the Air and the Gravity.

The Apterra will also be available soon and that thing gets like 600 mile range. It’s only a two seater though.

SeaJ,

Not sure why this is news. The current economy standard is 46 mpg.

SeaJ, (edited )

No. That is for level 1 chargers. Hyundai’s for instance default to 6A. People would be extremely pissed if their level 2 charger was defaulted to 6A since level 2 starts at 15A minimum.

SeaJ,

Over the span of a few decades? Considering our capacity and throughout is increasing, I think that would be just fine.

SeaJ,

The 2023 Bolt has Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Once they switch over to the Optium platform (next year I think), they will be using the Optium infotainment system. That has had some notable issues like rebooting in the middle of driving to apply an update which means you don’t get to see things like how fast you are going for a minute or two. They had to recall the Blazer EV because failed updates caused the car to become a brick. Like the car became inoperable. That really makes me wonder if they are scraping the bottom of the barrel for software developers since version rollback is pretty fucking standard for most software these days.

You do get 8 years free of their infotainment package. Not sure what all that includes though nor how much the subscription is after the 8 years is up.
