re: Oregon Passes Nation's First Bicycle Tax - Korkstand
[quote]I'm just not a fan of more taxes.[/quote]It's not necessarily "more taxes" just because it's a new tax. Why not just look at fuel taxes (or bike taxes) as "transportation infrastructure taxes"? [quote]The vast majority of people using those bike lanes, also use the regular roads and pay taxe...

re: Magnets on phone cases - Korkstand
[quote]How come magnets can wipe out hard drives, but not affect the phones? Different type of storage components?[/quote]Yeah, spinning disk hard disk drives use magnetism to store the bits, whereas solid state storage (like SSDs and flash storage in your phone) stores the bits with transistors.

[quote]hmmmmmm - lemmeeee think on that for a bit. nope [/quote] Well, your conclusion that Amazon shipped it in 3 packages because they get a "subsidy" on each package is nonsensical anyway. It would be cheaper to send one package regardless, so there must be a reason this happened. I just...
