With its sleek, aerodynamic line and motors integrated into the wheels, the Lightyear 0 consumes less energy than electric SUVs.
Wait, what? Why is its consumption being compared to an SUV??? Of course it consumes less power than an SUV, it's smaller, lighter and more aerodynamic.

"...bicycles work just fine..."
Not when it rains.
Or you have passengers, or luggage, or shopping bags, or if you're a taxi, or a bus...
A cycle isn't a universal answer.

it was never a women’s rights issue for me. It was purely for the protection of an unborn child right to live.
If the unborn has rights, why does the mother have none?
If 'life' is so damn sacred, why does America still have the death penalty? Why does it still allow children to buy guns and murder people? Do those lives not matter?
A fetus that lives due to this law, will have a wonderful fulfilling life with caring parents, you think?
I would rather live knowing my parents wanted me, rather than knowing I was alive because my mother wa subjugated by religious zealots and forced to give birth under duress.

Why not just officially classify women and being the property of men and get it over with.
I cannot believe that people can in good conscience, legally force a woman to remain pregnant and birth a child; condemning that person to a life sentence of being a parent when they did not want to be. Pro-life very clearly actually means pro-dictatorship, or pro-hatingWomen.
America, I R Disappoint.

Japan had Gasification energy plants, and shut them down. Bring them back, or build thorium reactors. Completely safe nuclear reactor with no weaponized byproducts.
The gov has options. They choose not to use them.

Wait, a 300% rise? Sure, ok. KFC buy a lot of lettuce. It's reasonable to believe they're paying 10 cents for a lettuce, or less. How many burgers to they get out of each lettuce? At least ten I'd expect. So their lettuce cost goes from one cent up to three. As a percentage of one ingredient, it's a lot; but as a percentage of the price of the burger, it's insignificant.
Companies love this "costs are going up" lie.

America counts freedom as one of the most important thing.
Yes restricts freedom to males. Females are free to do what they're told.
If someone you don't know what's an abortion, it's not something that you get to have a choice in.

"Although the specific weight isn't indicated on the label, it's heavy enough [...]"
That's always bugged me about Japan, products don't always have the weight or capacity visible on the products. It was regulation in the UK that packaging has to show a weight in grams or a capacity in ml in a prominent location on the labels. Why is this not a law here?

Using a "no-code" development environment is just programming in a non-conventional language. It's no different from using an IDE such as Xcode. Almost no-one writing code for iOS devices has any idea how pixels are written to the screen, that's abstracted away by the coding language.
Abstract enough away, and you get these new platforms, you also lose the ability to do complex things, and optimize the code in any meaningful way.
This is basically putting an air freshener in a car and saying you "built" a car because you put two pre-manufactured pieces together and created "car with air freshener function"

It's really quite difficult to jump from a moving car; it's not like in the movies. The air pressure against the door is significant. This took effort.
I suspect there may be something more to this story.

Can't people just wear whatever they want without other people imposing their values on them?
Why can't we live in a world where we don't tell others how to live their lives?
Why, in short, do humans insist on being dicks to each other?

Wow. Big news indeed. Never expected this, but its far from a surprising turn of events. Putin has destroyed Russia's reputation and political standing, and there will be repercussions for decades. It is all very sad.

Perhaps Putin could just stop being an evil dick and call off the war? He could even put a good PR spin on it and sell it as saving thousands of Russian lives and livelihoods.

" he placed umbrellas on the train tracks because he was feeling irritated."
Mental heath really needs to be prioritised in Japan. His 'excuse' is not acceptable. "I was having a bad day so I decided to endager/kill people"; NO. This is not ok.
Japan needs to shift from it's ancient work-first attitudes to something more.... civilized.

@Pepepopo: I completely agree.
I can understand the draw of a zoo 100+ years ago, when travel was less common, the internet didn't exist, neither did color television, so people didn't know what an elephant actually looked like. But in the modern Internet-of-Cats world, there's really no need for a smelly, morally-bankrupt, depressing animal-jail to exist at all.

How many more people need to be murdered by selfish monsters before America finally does something about this? Gun ownership needs to be curtailed.
Are these pointless killings, these wasted lives, are these really worth the "right to bear arms".

When you have a civilization where under 21's can buy a semi-automatic weapon, you don't have a civilization.
There's simply no justification for allowing people to own these weapons.
If they can't make guns illegal, can they make owning ammunition illegal? That could help.

It still amazes (saddens) me how people refuse to believe that masks have helped.
Did you people never watch a hospital drama on tv and notice the doctors wearing masks? They do that to protect the patient! This isn't something new or irrational.
Still, I'm glad the government is telling people they don't need the masks all the time, we certainly do need to get back to "normal" life.

Posted in: Sometimes we overdo it, such as wearing masks all day because we are afraid of what other people think. I think we should review our mask-wearing measures for times when masks are unnecessary. See in context
Masks served a valuable purpose in reducing cases, but this disease is clearly never going to leave. It's time to leave the masks in the box.

Wait, they announce new rules and bit fines, but don't say what those rules are, or if they will be legal to enforce? And this is a news story?
No wonder the companies declined to comment, what could they possibly have to say about this?
This is just garbage politicians trying to appear to do things, to justify their offensive salaries and kickbacks.

Where is your post berating the people calling the woman a liar without any evidence?
There are no such posts in this thread.
You're not helping your case here.
Some posts are critical of decisions made that led to the event, but there's not a single post here calling the woman a liar.
No-one has made any comment about the appearance of the woman either, but you made sure to paint a picture of the man. I wonder why?
To be clear: Rape is bad. Also bad: judging all men by the standards of some criminals. If you do that, how can you complain when some men judge women by the actions of a few.
