Today at set build, I was in charge of the small team that built this 7'x10' flat. Then after we were done, the director asked the producer if this flat was supposed to have a door in it. He checked his notes and realized it was, so we had to do some radical surgery to both the flat and a door.

I'm the end we got it done, but it was a busy, sweaty, and hectic day

Lettuce is such a weird looking cat, so my sister and I were trying to figure out what exactly makes her look so odd.

It's definitely something with her eyes, but also her ears point straight up too much.

Like I need another bike project, right?

I picked this Huffy Sportsmen for $20 because it has a Sturmey Archer three-speed hub and I've been wanting to build a bike with only of these

U.S. prosecutors are examining whether #Tesla committed securities or wire fraud by misleading investors and consumers about its electric vehicles’ self-driving capabilities, three people familiar with the matter told Reuters.

My partner just bought a new Volvo XC90, and even the digital owner's manual in the dash is out of date vs what the car actually displays, which is nice.

Maybe this whole "ship cars without the software being finished" thing was a load of crap the whole time

VE2UWY,
@VE2UWY@mastodon.radio avatar

@kwf

There is a story, perhaps apocryphal, that tested a Tesla & rated the stopping distance as "not acceptable".

So Tesla allegedly fixed it by pushing out a FW update to all those cars.

… Changing the braking distance …

Needless to say, if true, it's Very Bad.

@MLE_online That would be fun. Probably a lot of engineering to keep the strength/stability through the hinge. I look forward to your video series on the work. 😄

Without commenting on a single thing in the post, I have to say I was immediately drawn to the New Look buses in the image. Looking at the cars, I'm going to guess 1975 +/- 2.

Has there ever been someone who has been so totally disconnected from everything they just said in the previous sentence.

Trump: he's rushing this case

Also Trump: they've never sat in court so long

Acyn:

: You have a judge who is totally conflicted and he's rushing this case through. Some people somebody just told me they never sat for such a long period of time in a court house before. It’s ridiculous.

@GottaLaff He's Lucy and the Conveyor belt. Only the belt is his talking and he scrambles to keep putting words on the talking stream. Sometimes they make sense, sometimes he stuffs them in his pockets. All we hear is what's left. As "Elias" says, he suffers from dementia. Or more accurately, WE suffer from HIS dementia.

No new baby goats this morning (just the 4 from the last few days). The mama who's been gigantic for the last month is due today, so hopefully she'll have lots of healthy babies! I predict 4 (and I predict she'll have them at the most obnoxious time...I have lots of meetings today, but I have even more meetings tomorrow that are way less flexible, so today would be great!)
