re: Surprising number of EV owners switch back to gas power, study says - Volvagia
[quote]Seriously? ALL power that comes into your breaker is 240V. Power into your house is 110 so only a matter of rewiring your set up from the main box.[/quote] At that point it’s not the voltage, it’s the amperage. Your main will prob have to be upgraded, and the circuit for recharging being...

re: Pray for India - Volvagia
[quote]That would be a valid argument if we hadn't seen every single other control measure across the world fail more or less miserably.[/quote] Except that’s a lie. The hardlined lockdowns did work all over. No one working, no one allowed to leave home. Which BTW, we never really did in the US...

re: Pray for India - Volvagia
[quote]Now, think about the fact that china has even more people than India. Look at what is going on in India, and listen to them tell us again that china got this shite under control in a matter of months.[/quote] To be fair, I don’t think China is as uniformly packed like India. And the cities ...

re: Disney does it again, edits Finn out of a marketing photo - Volvagia
[quote]ou know most of this type of stuff is just licensed out and Disney has an ironclad contract on how their images can be used, right?[/quote] Because you either didn’t watch or didn’t understand the video: it’s not that a 3rd party didn’t include them. It’s that a third party did, as...

re: Democrats Intro Bill To Strip Federal Grants From Employers Conducting Criminal Background - Volvagia
[quote]And its just the fricking height of stupidity to keep interviewing a person who at the end will not get the job anyways because he has a felony.[/quote] Even if the felony is something like forgetting to return a video tape? And have you never dealt with HR recruiters as a hiring mana...

re: Democrats Intro Bill To Strip Federal Grants From Employers Conducting Criminal Background - Volvagia
[quote]Companies are not running background checks on all applicants.[/quote] No, but some of them ask the question early on the application process. Could be a weed out point by default, as an easy point to disqualify the resume in a pile even if it isn’t an integrity crime like theft or eve...

re: Democrats Intro Bill To Strip Federal Grants From Employers Conducting Criminal Background - Volvagia
[quote]So this doesn't change what most employers that I'm aware of do in today's day and age....most have already stopped asking about criminal record on the application. This still allows you to conduct a background check after the offer with a clean background check condition is issued. [/...

re: Democrats Intro Bill To Strip Federal Grants From Employers Conducting Criminal Background - Volvagia
This is actually a good deal. It doesn’t prohibit background checks. It just doesn’t allow them until after they spend some time getting invested into the candidate. This just stops them from digging into that info up front/early in the process, and consider the candidate as a whole as opposed ...

re: Why would any sane healthy person vaccinate against a virus with 99.6% recovery rate? - Volvagia
[quote]Yes those motorcycle covid deaths were crazy[/quote] Which is why I didn’t play a shell game of attributing specific deaths to a cause, where it could be claimed they really died of something else. 23% more people died. They just didn’t swap the labels from other causes and call it COV...

[quote]Flu is also deadlier than covid. [/quote] I don’t know why people keep parroting this BS. COVID didn’t warrant the protracted shutdowns (at least not in the manner done). But the fact remains the total deaths spiked more than 23% in the US last year compared to the trends of the pr...

re: Cities Skylines - city building game - Volvagia
Biggest advice: this isn’t a city builder as much as a traffic simulator. Traffic simulation has always been a thing, but Skylines takes it to a level you might not expect/realize. Every single vehicle is doing a task with a effect. Transporting goods(for businesses to sell or as raw materia...
