I was there, in HK, 1989. Only a child at the time, but I remember looking out the window and seeing absolute hordes of people protesting. It was scary.

I’m with you, theFU. None of my cars have any of that connectivity and that’s exactly how I like it. Focus on / enjoy the road.

About time. If there’s one thing I never tire of hearing, it’s greater representation, inclusivity, and diversity.

There's another way to use "cluster" - just add a few more letters, I'm sure you know which ones, and that describes the situation more accurately.

Posted in: Faster, higher, older: Pensioners defy virus fears to keep Olympics running See in context

The IOC makes my blood boil. Gajillions of dollars from donations, licensing rights, and government bidding (allegedly), and they still manage to draw in 70,000+ volunteers to work for free - under brutal conditions - so we can all enjoy the woke sportsballs.
