  1. I can guarantee he wasn't using Autopilot at the time. I have my autopilot follow distance set to the absolute minimum, and it's a solid 3 car lengths at interstate speeds. You can't tailgate or make tight lane changes while on Autopilot.
  2. I'd say those number probably include the cost of the building and required equipment. Real estate prices and sizes of locations is the only thing I can think of that would justify the extreme differences in franchise costs. Probably also why Subways are cheapest and has the smallest range...most Subways are in crappy locations and they are almost all tiny.
  3. I must have bought some crappy stuff, then. I bought a tube of silicone caulk when I finished my basement (2010), but ended up not using it. I needed it a few years ago for another project, and it never solidified (stayed liquidy/tacky for about 2 weeks before I gave up and bought some new stuff).
  4. I had a 2004 Mazda 6. Loved that car. Some idiot t-boned me and totaled it about 3 months before I had it paid off. Never realized how much I missed that hatchback until I got rid of my Altima for the Tesla.
  5. LOL...I've always said "I'd rather freeze than burn," but I never thought of it in this context.
  6. We're talking about the same people that hoarded toilet paper for a respiratory virus. Not the sharpest tools in the shed.
  7. So, basically, the 3rd biggest non-nuclear explosion EVAR?
  8. This. I love dogs, but I'm not really home enough to be fair to one. The cats sleep 20+ hours per day, so I don't feel bad leaving them home alone all day.
  9. The remakes of The Italian Job and Ocean's 11 were better than the originals, IMO.
  10. I've now seen multiple articles claiming that the big explosion was caused by ignition of ~2,700 tons of Ammonium Nitrate* that was confiscated off a ship in 2013 (!). There was a small fire at a nearby warehouse containing fireworks, which is what everybody was filming when the fertilizer bomb went off. * For reference, the Oklahoma City bombing used ~6,500 pounds (3.25 tons) of Ammonium Nitrate.
  11. Linky Apparently there was a giant explosion at the port in Beirut, Lebanon. Preliminary reports are that a shipment of Sodium Nitrate confiscated off a ship some time ago exploded. It flattened the port and the shockwave could be felt as far away as 180 miles. So far, 25 are confirmed dead and 2500 injured, but many are still trapped in rubble.
  12. My dad had one of those early 80's Celicas until 2002. And the floor pan was almost completely rusted though.
  13. My co-workers and I go to a local mexican joint for lunch every Tuesday. I always load up my meal with a shitload of hot sauce, then end up choking on it. The past few weeks, I've been trying to stifle my coughs so we don't get kicked out. This same chain (but another location) had a worker test positive towards the beginning of the pandemic, so I'm trying not to get them shut down.
  14. Baseball was on in the bar where I had dinner tonight. I'm not a fan, but I was casually watching between drinks. One game had cardboard "fans" in the stands behind home plate. My friends and I mocked it mercilessly. Then, the next game that came on had nothing in the stands behind home plate. The cardboard cutouts looked a lot better than empty seats.
