Re: The Fast Food Junkie Thread

Right, I guess TB has access to that magic "inside information" that we, the public, aren't privy to. So, it costs less for them to recall 2 millions pounds of beef than possible ensuing lawsuits...

And Del Taco is superior to Popeyes, Chick-fil-A, and In-n-out!

Re: The Fast Food Junkie Thread

Who pays for that recalled beef? Taco Bell, or their customers? Or, the company who manufactures the beef? I'm sure in all instances like these, shit flows downhill = WE, the ultimate consumers and...

Re: Eerie Coincidences

In other words, we carry around portable telescreens that report everything we say to Big Brother. Nice! Let's double unthink that, and get our lives back!

Re: Millions of Californians Will Go Dark in Biggest Fire Outage Yet

Absolutely, the sole and only purpose of my going solar would be to *get off the grid entirely*! Not use the power company as my battery. Because, when you do, you're still at their mercy (and also,...

Re: slop101's Official Soda / Cola Thread!

Rotating different flavors of Gatoraid / poweraid is about the best I could do in getting rid of soda. They only have 14g sugars per 8 oz serving, less than 1/2 the calories of soda, and still taste...

Re: How fast is your internet speed?

Yes, as I said, for now Spectrum does seem like the best service with no data cap, and the fastest speeds. But, let's see how that pans out in 6 months or a year from now. One thing I've learned is...

Re: Tesla and other Electric Cars Talk

Right, the v. 10.0 updates seems a frivolous update. When's true level 4 autonomy coming? Elon's promised that by Christmas. And, Bill Gates promised Windows 98 in 1996.

As far as I can see,...

Re: How fast is your internet speed?

Next up... Spectrum will start enforcing a data cap. As of now, I believe it has no cap. But, you can be absolutely sure that your "free" upgrade from 100 to 200 mbps is NOT free by any means!

I hope Tesla survives, but who knows? Elon's got too much on his plate right now. The guy is the very definition of bipolar. My guess would be that yes, the Germans would take the lead in the...

Re: Millions of Californians Will Go Dark in Biggest Fire Outage Yet

Fucking pathetic! PG&E deserves to burn in hell. It's a public utility, for God's sake! It should be subsidized, with the people's interest in mind, for the greatest good. Things like this just make...

Re: The Apple Thread

Yes, I think they're wanting to switch completely over to ARM 64-bit processors, made in house by Apple itself. They want to ditch Intel entirely, since, by doing that, they'll be making even more...

Re: Millions of Californians Will Go Dark in Biggest Fire Outage Yet

No outages yet... dry as hell and windy but thankfully not 50 mph as claimed tonight.

Has anyone in our ranks actually been made to suffer through an enforced blackout? I hope not.

Re: The Apple Thread

What's the advantage of this? The architecture still supports 32-bit programs. Is it just Apple being Apple, breaking perfectly good systems in the name of streamlining and 'progress'? So, Apple has...

Re: Millions of Californians Will Go Dark in Biggest Fire Outage Yet

Yes, that's another perfectly valid way of looking at it. Hence, the issue seems to remain paradoxical, and 'unsolvable'

And, time to get out of Dodge. For the illegals AND the legals. Let Calif....

Re: Why is the McRib so darn tasty?

Oncor's rib patties, the big yellow package! You've got McRibs for 1/5 the cost there. For those who prefer their processed, pressed pork parts on the cheap. Garbage in, Garbage out!

Re: Millions of Californians Will Go Dark in Biggest Fire Outage Yet

No, no, most of them DO work -- and very hard work, in my personal experience, but are paid under the table, so that the money is either laundered, not reported, and / or they don't pay their fair...

Re: Millions of Californians Will Go Dark in Biggest Fire Outage Yet

Re: Millions of Californians Will Go Dark in Biggest Fire Outage Yet

Re: Landlords on my case about my cleanliness!

Laserdiscs were actually pretty decent for the time. That's why I've hung on to 200 of them! Still limited to NTSC 480i, but with a good player (like mine, the Pioneer CLD-D704), they can and do...

Re: Landlords on my case about my cleanliness!

The eviction laws in California definitely favor the tenant, especially the paying tenant. So, my guess is that Alan would get at least 30 days if an eviction notice is actually served.

Re: Vintage WWII B-17 crashes

Yes, a sad spectacle, but it was very, very foolish to fly a 75-year-old plane and not expect problems. Perhaps they did, but I doubt the 10 passegers thought much about the very questionable safety...
