re: Alabama lawmakers have passed a near total ban on abortion - Korkstand
[quote]My point is doing that means that you have to make exceptions for everyone else. Where do we draw the line?[/quote] We have lines drawn all over the place. Bodily autonomy, freedom, privacy, separation of church and state, etc. But some lawmakers can't seem to help themselves from ignoring a...

re: Anyone with Google Fi have trouble with wifi calls? - Korkstand
So far so good after a few calls. The tried and true reset method works again it seems. I actually feel kind of silly for not doing that to begin with, but it had only happened in a few calls over the past few days so it didn't seem to be [i]that[/i] kind of problem. Also a reset shouldn't be t...

Anyone with Google Fi have trouble with wifi calls? - Korkstand
Lately about half the calls I make via wifi, I can hear the other party but they can't hear me at all. Turn off wifi, works fine. I'm doing the help chat right now and this bitch is trying to get me to troubleshoot my internet connection. That ain't the problem. Now she wants me to cycle a...

[quote]Of the 800 or so steps I took I farted for 600 steps[/quote]When that happens I have to wonder how amazing it would be if it all escaped in one fart. Relatedly, I love it when I fart so long that I start laughing at it before it's done, so then it starts sputtering. ...

re: Red light cameras - Korkstand
[quote]Also, educate yourself MUTCD Some tech more tech[/quote]Dude, WTF? Again. You JUST acted like detecting a possible red light runner in advance was just absurd, "James Cameron" tech, and then you link to companies that make systems that seem to do exactly that! :lol: My question is,...

[quote]red light runners HUNDREDS OF FEET in advance?!?! Outside of doing 100+mph, how in the hell are you going to determine a red light running vehicle?!

re: Red light cameras - Korkstand
[quote]I will give you this: a blanket application for the cameras is misguided. yes. BUT, for certain intersections, they can save lives. [/quote]Sure they can. But my argument is that saving lives isn't usually the deciding factor in these decisions, as it should be. Further, I argue that the...

re: Red light cameras - Korkstand
[quote]That's a good idea, but is this coupled with eliminating any punitive action against the red-light runner? If so, then this gives red-light runners carte blanche to run lights with impunity, without fear of anyone entering the intersection.[/quote]Also addressed earlier, I couldn't care l...

[quote]I am unaware of vehicle detection tech that is currently available to do this[/quote] :confused: It is VERY easy to detect, both with cameras and radar, whether a vehicle is decelerating, and by how much, with current tech. This has been possible for a couple decades, at least. Problem is, pr...

[quote]Also, on the frequency of rear-end crashes, if the deployment discourages one 90-degree angle fatal collision while incurring a half dozen minor rear end collisions, its a win. [/quote]If that's how the numbers play out, then sure it's a win. But from the research I've seen (I posted a link e...

re: Red light cameras - Korkstand
[quote]How do you propose stopping a red-light runner from entering an intersection? Zap it with a laser or have metal spikes pop up to blow their tires? [/quote]I explained in an earlier post, but I'll repeat. First and foremost you DON'T GIVE THE CROSS TRAFFIC A GREEN LIGHT. If it's clear that ...

re: Red light cameras - Korkstand
[quote]If the flat fee is 3,000 per month, and the intersection generates 3,200 in fines (I'm sure my math isn't perfect, but for illustrative purposes, it works), then the company is keeping "up to" 86!percent of the revenue.
