Nah, but drive it like you stole it.
I'm not really a Nerd....played Football (HS & College), BB, BB, lift weights, have Muscle Cars, perform physical labor, limited Computer knowledge, etc....BUT, I love me some Star Wars!lol
Bro, you sound like my long lost twin!
Since you have workouts covered, try this...
So lots of midriff and puppy pics?
If you are a red light camera company, it means you shorten the yellow light so cars don't have enough time to stop in time. I believe the safe estimate is that a yellow light should last 1 second for every 10 MPH that the speed limit is, so a 45 MPH street should have at least a 4.5 second yellow light. I know when they first installed some cameras in some towns, the yellows were MUCH shorter than that.
Not sure where to get it, but I LOVE Yellow Lake Perch and Walleye.
Traffic and Parking would beg to differ. ;)
PLEASE don't get me started on how awful Columbus drivers are.
Agreed. Personally, I also think some communities NEED to do a better job at stop light control. Take Polaris in Westerville for example. There is NO REASON to have to stop at almost every single light driving down that street. Once you get into the groove of traffic, if you are going the speed limit on a street with a major flow of traffic, you should have green lights until you exit that main flow. As it is now, if you start out on Maxtown going west, you will stop at 90% of the lights until you hit Route 23. That stop and go KILLS MPG for every single car. And what do you wait for? ... People merging onto Polaris from shopping centers and small side streets, the flow of traffic and timing doesn't matter as much as to those small flows of traffic that are likely merging into the larger flow anyway.
If you've ever been to a place like Chicago or NYC, this obviously doesn't work as well, since traffic is just FUBAR anyway. But in your typical suburban and light urban areas, smart stop light control could save a TON of energy and money.
Good stuff, but I'm REALLY missing the new posts being highlighted somehow.
Yes, lighter and stronger materials are always in need for every form transportation, and as always, getting the cost down on these new materials is key.
I'd just add that while many people may commute to work as 1 passenger, the need for many is to still have a vehicle big enough to transport an entire family and the "stuff" that may come with that. A husband, wife, 2.5 kids, and Stuff can get you around the 800 lbs mark quickly. Trust me, I NEVER wanted to own a minivan EVER in my life, yet here we are.
I'm still waiting for these:
Even as a performance car guy, I like what Tesla is doing with their products/technology, but there are still some issues with electric cars for many people. Maybe the biggest is recharge time. On long trips, especially for someone who travels a lot on business, waiting hours to "refuel" is unacceptable. For someone with just a city commute that can recharge at night and during work, it's not an issue.
I like the performance that a high output electric motor driving each wheel brings, even if I miss the V8 roar. In fact, so do the big auto companies. That might be the biggest challenge that Tesla will face in the future. I can tell you with 100% certainty that the engineers of some car models that have been traditionally "V8 performance" vehicles, are STRONGLY considering either hybrid or fully electric versions of those vehicles b/c of the performance AND the mandatory EPA MPG numbers that are coming soon.
Get in the way of a hottake? His stats confirm what I stated above.
"Meanwhile, in the East, you have OSU, MSU, TTUN, and PSU" His stats show these are the top 4 out of 6 teams in the past 20 years, with MSU being the lowest, however MSU has had A LOT of success lately, with a few end of season top 5 rankings.
Conference records - past 20 years:
Ohio State 0.796 129 33
TSUN 0.662 106 54
Nebraska 0.647 108 59
Wisconsin 0.638 104 59
PSU 0.581 93 67
MSU 0.564 92 71
The past 10 years show TTUN dropping off significantly, but I did say 10-20 years. I gave Wisconsin, NW, and Iowa some credit. I mentioned Nebraska, but again, they were more successful pre-BIG, as they drop from 3rd to 5th from the 20 to 10 year span.
Conference records - past 10 years:
Ohio State 0.866 71 11
Wisconsin 0.699 58 25
MSU 0.663 55 28
PSU 0.600 48 32
Nebraska 0.595 50 34
Iowa 0.543 44 37
He'll still be an All-American at OSU in 3 years.
I thought Interstellar was great too. The bookcase thing was a little odd, but I understood what they were going for with it.
