Back in the 1970s when we switched to unleaded gas, what did the vehicles that ran on leaded gas do?
  • Getting hardened seats isn't really all that expensive either. I took the head off my MG and a shop only charged me about $300 for a full teardown and rebuild of the head, including all the machining and installation of hardened seats. It's way cheaper in the long run than having to add a lead substitute every fill-up

  • Conservative Owns the Libs by Paying $4,000 a Month for His Ford F-350
  • There are certainly practical reasons for them, like if you do a lot of ATVing, you can negate the need for hauling it in a trailer and just drive it up into the bed. It can definitely be nice to have a truck bed for certain things, but many people buy trucks for stuff they do once a month (if that), and not something they do every day, like commuting.

  • Self-Driving Tesla Nearly Hits Oncoming Train, Raises New Concern On Car's Safety
  • If only there was some sort of sensing technology that wasn't purely optical, that'd be pretty neat. Maybe even using something like radio, for detection and ranging. Too bad no one's ever come up with something like that.

  • Not only that, but took out the radar, which while it has its own flaws, would have had no issue seeing the train through the fog. While they claimed it was because they had "solved vision" and didn't need it anymore, it's bullshit, and their engineering team knew it. They were in the middle of sourcing a new radar, but because of supply chain limitations (like everyone in 2021) with both their old and potential new supplier, they wouldn't continue their "infinite growth" narrative and fElon wouldn't get his insane pay package. They knew for a fact it would negatively affect performance significantly, but did it anyway so line could go up.

    While no automotive company's hands are particularly clean, the sheer level of willful negligence at Tesla is absolutely astonishing and have seen and heard so many stories about their shitty engineering practices that the only impressive thing is how relatively few people have died as a direct result of their lax attitude towards basic safety practices.

  • Recognizing when you're living in your best years
  • My mom and I don't have a lot in common, and I think part of it is she sometimes worries she didn't spend enough time with me as a kid because she worked so much. Her taking me to music lessons and then hot cocoa afterwards are some of my coziest memories with her.

  • Soldered-on RTC batteries (with type covered as a bonus)
  • I've found the little flush cutters that came with my Ender3s are awesome for removing stuff that's been spot-welded like this. I took apart a few cordless tool packs with them, and kept everything so neat I could easily reuse all the tabs if I wanted.

  • Elon Musk laid off the Tesla Supercharger team; now he’s rehiring them
  • I can tell you, knowing people who worked with the guy since the original launch of the Model S, he's always been like this. He's always been a loud mouthed idiot, and he's always been insanely unpredictable. The only thing that changed has been his PR team and personal handlers, and how much the news media is willing to focus on how much of a POS the dude is.

  • Ordered back to the office, top tech talent left instead, study finds
  • I've been hybrid even during COVID, because sometimes I have to go in and test, but recently there's been a mandatory RTO push, and it's absolutely absurd thinking about all the work I could be doing between getting ready to head out the door and getting to the office. It's straight up 2+ hours of wasted productivity any day I could have been WFH but decide to go into the office.

    We even had people showing hard data their teams are less productive in-office, but I shit you not, management just said "They feel like it'll be better". Literally managing based on feelings > facts, which I'm sure our shareholders would love if they found out.

  • Ordered back to the office, top tech talent left instead, study finds
  • Because while you're commuting, that's effectively "company time" you're not getting paid for. If you work 8 hours a day and your commute is half an hour each way, then you're taking 9, not 8 hours a day out of your schedule for work. That's an extra ~250 hours a year you're taking out of your own time for work, whereas with an "instant commute" WFH, the moment you logoff becomes personal time again.

  • Solve the housing crisis with this one weird trick
  • You're right, I am a selfish asshole and the only person on the entire planet who lives in an area that doesn't have the population density for an apartment complex to make sense, and I'm also the only person whose lifestyle conflicts with apartment living. My apologies for singlehandedly destroying the US housing market because I rented a SFH.
