    1. IGNITE THE FIRE IN A BATHTUB

      Probably best if you don't...

    2. It fastens the combustion process

      What does it fasten the combustion process to? 🤔

    3. kindle the hole with fire

      So romantic...

      Bing thinks this is the best document on the entire Internet on the subject of efficiently burning documents, so you don't have to buy and maintain a paper shredder. 🙄

    1. Robert Fenton, Electrical and Computer Engineering Professor Emeritus, pioneered the technology for the first wave of self-driving cars.

      I had Fenton for a class once and during a lecture he asked a question of the class. A student raised his hand and answered. Professor Fenton listened and asked the class "Does anyone else agree that his answer is correct?"

      About 85% of the students in the large lecture hall raised their hands.

      He paused, shook his head, and said "Well, then I'm afraid you're all going to fail." Then he turned around and went back to writing on the chalkboard.

    1. Repeat process until vehicle.

      I guess it's not a vehicle until you buff it repeatedly with Rain-X products.

    1. a well-fitting mask or respirator over their nose and mouth

      Most people I see wearing masks don't have a good seal, many have beards or facial hair affecting the seal, often they have their nose sticking out over the top - or chin mask.

      And masking children properly is an exercise in futility.

      Long story short, when worn properly they offer "some" protection studies also found that modest improvements in ventilation offered as much protection as even the best masks.

    1. 202

      I think they meant 2021. 🤦‍♂️

      Maybe Glenn Battishill's editor has the day off?

    2. Troopers targeting distracted drivers

      Headline should read "Troopers report Distracted Driving down 54%"

      Or maybe "Troopers Collecting Needless Overtime".

      But the media must always mindlessly bleat the press releases they've been given by the mercenary enforcers, and only seek comment from their cheerleaders.

    3. Beginning April 7, if you text and drive, you will pay.

      Even though the data shows that people are driving more safely, Jackie Bain is still rooting for the mercenary enforcers to rob you by punishing you for good behavior.

      Seems sociopathic.

    4. nearly 96% of drivers believed it was very or extremely dangerous to read a text or email while driving, four out of 10 drivers admitted to doing so within the previous 30 days.

      Maybe they're aware of how dangerous it is, so now they're still doing it, but being more careful about it - resulting in the significant drop in incidents that OSP is reporting locally.

    5. Over the next month, Curry said troopers will be able to sign up to work federally funded overtime to specifically seek out and enforce distracted driving.

      This is what following the PR schedule - instead of actual data is really about. It lets them cozy up and fill their bellies with overtime from the public trough.

      American tax extortion victims should be demanding to know why Delaware County troopers are getting Federal overtime dollars to address a problem that is projected to be half as bad as last year.

    6. Locally, Curry said troopers handled 275 distracted driving crashes in 2020, 322 in 2021 and 47 so far this year. He added local troopers issued 267 distracted driving citations in 2020, 299 in 202 and 51 so far this year.

      This article was published on April 9th, (Day 99 of 2022) which is 27% through the year. So based on the data provided, what can we expect?

      In terms of CRASHES, we've had 47 so far when 27% of the way through 2020 and 2021 we would have had 75 and 87 crashes by now (assuming that distracted driving crashes are generally evenly distributed through the year) - so we're on track for 173 distracted driving crashes this year; that's only a little over half (54% of last year's numbers).

      As they said in the first paragraph:

      The Delaware Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol is stepping up enforcement this month in an effort to curb distracted driving, which the agency reports is leading to increased traffic crashes and deaths statewide.

      ...so they're doing this on a PR schedule - not because the numbers are up - in fact, the numbers are down locally by a huge margin.

      With Troopers focusing on this, it means they're not focusing on safety problems that are increasing.

    7. local troopers will be using National Distracted Driver Awareness Month

      In other words, these mercenaries harass motorists based on a PR schedule, not based on local trends.

    1. Others, including law enforcement groups, warn that the bill could make things more dangerous for Ohioans and first responders.

      It should be noted that these people have said the same time every time reform of firearms laws have been proposed.

      They have been tremendously wrong every single time.

      So why listen to others when they have only been wrong every time?

    1. Oh and I automated my entire crypto portfolio.

      Interesting boast for someone who works for someone else. 🤔

    1. It took more than 20 years and more money than originally proposed to complete the building.

      A testament to the State's heritage of incompetence.

    2. the statehouse was constructed using clay from the 40-foot Native American mound at Mound and High streets

      Wow... that seems kind of spiteful and intolerant.

    1. Russian armored vehicles are loaded onto railway platforms

      They are loaded onto railway flatcars. The platform is the area in the photo marked by white lines - where passengers board trains.

      Journalists know very little about the world around them yet present themselves as authoritative.

    1. a new alliance

      I've lost track of the number of times Mayor Andrew Ginther has spun up "a new alliance" of "faith leaders, city leaders, and medica professionals" and called upon "everyone" to fight the crime problem he's done nothing to address - as did his predecessors.

    1. Whether a discussion fits these criteria is decided by the mods. 8. Not knowing the rules is no excuse.272 You do not have permission to send messages in this channel.

      Brilliant. So, not knowing beforehand what the moderators will arbitrarily decide is no excuse for not violating an arbitrary rule. Gotcha. 🤦‍♂️

    1. Elon Musk tweets, then deletes, Holocaust joke

      Ars Technica libeled Elon Musk by reporting that Musk "tweeted, then deleted holocaust joke".

      While Hitler presided over a holocaust, the joke had nothing to do with that and everything to do with the fact that both Hitler and Trudeau are tyrants.

      The joke itself, which Ars Technica found so offensive that they felt they should mirror it; didn't reference the holocaust in any way and thus does not pass muster as a "holocaust joke", so since they can't do anything productive like run successful automakers or aerospace companies they need to sit on the sidelines and lie about Musk to try to achieve a sense of faux superiority. 🙄

    1. Comments are turned off.

      I'd like to ask everyone to watch this 19 second long "public meeting" with comments disabled so you can see what a joke Government is.

      If you agree, please re-share. If you disagree, please explain how you think this could possibly be legitimate in the comments.

    1. Comments are turned off.

      At 1:41 in the video, almost everyone has masks on.

      By the 2:00 mark in the video, nobody has masks on anymore.

      Apparently "the science" says that you wear your masks for the photo op - but then take them off when you don't think anyone is looking anymore.

      I don't think the Government should be allowed to post propaganda to social media platforms like YouTube with comments disabled.

    1. McDowell was arrested on Monday in Deerfield Beach, Fla., after he allegedly exposed himself in public. According to court records obtained by WPLG Local 10, police received a call that a man was walking around naked near a children’s school. Surveillance footage showed McDowell walk onto the property naked while school was in session.
    1. The team expects dumping out the contents will be pretty straightforward, involving pointing the open end at the ground and letting gravity take over. 

      Glad they explained that... I was wondering how that might work.

    1. he and others managed to escape after he threw a chair at the hostage-taker

      If only there were a way to hurl objects at an attacker very quickly and accurately in Texas. Perhaps one could carry multiple such objects in case the first few missed.

    1. he told the CNews channel that child migrants were "thieves, killers, they're rapists

      What age ranges include "child migrants" these days?

      Why would someone be concerned that "children" are going to rape people?

      Children are defined as pre-pubescent.

      https://www.lexico.com/definition/child

      When did "migrant" become a race? The statement at issue in this court "finding" doesn't seem to address the subject of race at all.

    1. Another picture from that user shows a broken throttle, though it’s unclear who the account belongs to or whether they would have access to the cockpit to take that picture.

      Well, I mean if the picture exists, I guess they have access to the cockpit to take the picture - right?

    1. Mabry says if you own a Hyundia or Kia, you better add extra security so you don't become the next target.

      Apparently, there is an issue with key fob security on 2020 Kia Sportage and Hyundai models.

      Also, Columbus Police and 10TV don't know how to spell Hyundai or use spell check.

    1. We’re not a place—it’s very difficult to come to Xbox Live and say, ‘Okay, I want to go create a political party on the platform’. You could kind of twist the tools and try to get there, but it’s just not set up for general-purpose conversations or community.

      My Xbox 360 display picture is a Libertarian Party one created by the Xbox team for a past election cycle. They had them for GOP and Dem as well.

      There are also a few groups centered around politics for coordinating gameplay together premised on a common interest - so it seems that to that extent he doesn't know his own system?

      I don't know that Xbox as a social platform would be favorable for "creating a political party" whatever that means. Government's control what political parties are created - they only allow the ones they approve of to exist anyway.

    1. The safety and security of our employees continues to be our top priority

      If the safety and security of their employees was truly their top priority, then why didn't they have any security present to prevent this?

      This is because they are lying and have higher priorities than the safety and security of their employees.

    2. outside of Columbus

      Columbus is a municipal corporation. This address lies within the boundaries of Columbus.

      Stating that this branch was "outside of Columbus" is false.

    3. Police are searching for the suspect

      Seems like it'd be important to alert the public to the suspect description so they could help locate them. Why is public safety being obscured by secrecy?
