The self-defense argument here feels very, very contrived. The details he recalls don’t seem plausible at all. Pair that with his initial confession, later recanted under claims of “amnesia.”

I’m having a hard time being uncomfortable with the implication of the headline, frankly.

There’s something on the wing! There’s something on the wing!

Sometimes there’s a fine line between well worn and just worn out.

Will make sure of that. Thanks!

The above is very good advice. The key is to sand flats more aggressively and edges and contours lightly. Avoid rounding over edges or transitions. A sanding block should help if doing by hand. But generally work to keep the flats flat and edges/transitions true to original. Avoid temptation to sand over edges too much.

Hope this makes sense!

Pigments (such as paint) were made primarily from lapis lazuli,c cobalt, and azurite. Which are all minerals. Dyes (for clothes and such) were made from plants such as woad.

And paintings transformed dramatically by blue and white pigments eventually becoming more available. The art lightened up and the scenes became more vibrant.

Motivation is just a feeling and it passes, so it wouldn't work. You have to have discipline to achieve something like that.

Eh, motivation can breed discipline if it’s strong enough. The thing is getting over the “it’s hard” hump with getting in shape and pushing toward results and the reward. Then that in itself can be the motivation. It feels good and you know what it took to get there and don’t want to backslide.

If motivation breeds discipline, what breeds motivation?

Because that's where I'm stuck.

Could be a goal. Could be a girl (or guy). Could be a doctor telling you something he should save for someone much older.

It took me a while, but what it came down to is whether the pain of not doing anything was worse than doing something.

Start slow but start. And don’t give up. Make yourself do something. Every day if possible. Before long, you’ll miss it when you don’t do it.

I’m only a little surprised, partly because so much of his business is built on solar and alternative fuel. But what we need is money taken out of the equation. Publicly funded elections. No more outside donations.

That blows my mind. We’re now having hearings over random text messages that express negative views of Trump.

This country is so fucked up right now.

A text message that says we'll stop him. By a person deeply involved in investigating his competitor and his alleged, by some, collusion with Russia. What blows you mind again? This isn't the only text that brings up doubts. Really? That blows your mind? We are fucked if you think this reasonable from an FBI agent in his position.

I think that it’s worth someone looking into to see if there’s any actual evidence of misconduct. That’s reasonable. Senate hearing based on text message comments and literally nothing else is not reasonable. Yes, that blows my mind.

We’re not living in the goddamn Soviet Union. Even an FBI agent or Secret Service agent is permitted to dislike the president or anyone they want. And they can text their mistress about that opinion. If appropriate, double check they’re diligently doing their job. That there’s no evidence this opinion is compromising their effectiveness. But this hearing was a goddamn embarrassment.

When people are getting their news on facebook, we've already lost. Ban facebook.

So ban every platform that allows unreliable sources. Ban television. Ban print.

This is not a well thought out comment.

No, but if a social networking site like facebook is being used as a news source we have already lost. It's like going to Wing Stop to get your taxes done. They have no idea how to do anything even tangentially related to doing taxes. The same goes for facebook attempting to disseminate news. It's absurd.

But Facebook isn’t disseminating news. They provide the platform.

Nope

I wouldn’t say this is the result of “going green,” but rather a good idea very, very poorly executed.

Jesus Christ, is this the new norm now? Bad, shot-for-shot ripoffs of original content?

Fair point.

Such as? What are you going to suggest we use to physically stop multi-ton vehicles without damaging them if they ignore it?

It’s just an observation, man. Fun side discussion. Didn’t intend to start a global debate here.

But since you need this, how about adding a visible barrier that lifts or retracts when you won’t disable your truck because you were running behind schedule and jumped the green by one damn second?

Or how about a second pylon or whatever that’s more visible to a driver sitting two metres in the air?

Or just add a sign that reads: “warning: jump the green and you’ll crush your oil pan”

This isn’t difficult. Sure, waiting for the green isn’t difficult either, but this is probably the fourth such video I’ve seen, so that to me feels like bad design.

You can't just put an idea out there that people disagree with and then act surprised when people try to start a conversation about why you're wrong.

But since you need this, how about adding a visible barrier that lifts or retracts when you won’t disable your truck because you were running behind schedule and jumped the green by one damn second?

I'm guessing you meant "That you won't" because otherwise I can't make sense of this.

But again, how do you propose we make a barrier that will physically stop cars, without damaging them if they ignore it?

If you're trying to say use a gate instead, a gate that won't stop you if you decide to ram it, will not fulfill the purpose of this bollard.

Or how about a second pylon or whatever that’s more visible to a driver sitting two metres in the air?

I'm not sure what this means, are you saying the bollard should be six feet tall? Then people would complain that it takes too damn long, on top of being harder to install.

Or just add a sign that reads: “warning: jump the green and you’ll crush your oil pan”

At this point everyone should know what a red light means, a red light does not mean, "Try to predict when I'll change so you can waste as little time as possible."

This isn’t difficult. Sure, waiting for the green isn’t difficult either, but this is probably the fourth such video I’ve seen, so that to me feels like bad design.

And how many videos have you seen of cars losing control because of a blow out? Because most blowouts are caused by neglecting to replace old or damaged tires. Hitting bollards is also caused by neglecting to respond to warning signs. Does this mean tires are badly designed?

Jesus Christ, dude. Long day?

Tell you what, buy me a beer and I’ll be happy to debate this. But short of that, I’m out.

Looks cool as hell. What’s this curse we shan’t talk about?

Edit: punctuation

No idea yet about the SHINKO device, but it doesn’t appear to be permanently or even well installed. Is it getting power? Can you slide it up and remove it from the wall?

Isn’t this a remake of a legit video? This feels very fake.

Pretty misleading title but would be incredible if it works. I’m terrified for these kids.

Sorry for that I’ve been stuck in a cave before, nothing this bad or mortally dangerous, and it was terrifying ... so seeing this effort gives one hope that the worst won’t happen which is I think awesome. For sure compared to no hope at all.

Totally. And it was Ars Technica’s title, really. I’ll be glued to this story. Makes my chest tight just thinking about it.
