And this is why we need to guillotine the rich. Or introduce a wealth tax. I am open to either.

It just damaged mine, it was crashing all the time before I messed around and tried power limiting mine. It was about 2 weeks before it got revealed that it was a wide spread issue.

I don't think I caught it early enough, though, because I have a lot of problems with my USB controller. It can only handle like two or three devices plugged in at a time before things stop working. But, technically, it still works, so... I think I'd have trouble making a warranty claim.

I have a pair of sweatpants that looks almost like a pair my wife has and I put it on by accident and I was like did I get super fat overnight?

Bottom line I have a big ass and my wife liked it. Context I'm 6' 2" and she's 4' 11"

Private industry handling a public utility is never a good idea, see: Texas power grid

internet should be treated like water and power and handled by the city.

Taxes and responsibility mostly.

Fucking hate capitalism's need for infinite growth, flat sales means you're doing exactly the same as you were doing last year, if it was sustainable last year it's sustainable this year

Especially for a company that is little more than a platform

Biden has been doing a lot of good work. I wasn't a fan when he ordered the rail workers back to work but since then be has increased the cost of carbon in negotiations, canceled the debt he was able to without the Senate and proposed relaxing drug restrictions on cannabis.

He isn't perfect but it's more good news than I got through 2016-2020 and he's doing it while getting stonewalled on every decision by a Republican controlled Congress.

As trade with North America and China degraded that was one of the worst casualties.

China has a booming market for small EVs. It is not an understatement to say they are years ahead of us in that regard.

What is it North America? Because you said I'm not allowed to have public transit and now I'm not even allowed to have the type of car I want.

Oh boy do I love freedom.

Touch screens in cars.

When I'm driving I need a tactile immediate response that is easy to understand without looking at it.

Touch screens are for controls that change so you can take advantage of the dynamic nature of a screen for the static needs of a car and the immediate feedback you need, make them the worst possible solution.
