I'd say that majority of young people have a tendency to oversimplify everything. It's an attitude that comes from inexperience. In some ways that's great; it helps bring about change. The problem is that it also results in a lot of reinventing of wheels. Add to that the fact that they're arrogant about how in tune… » 1/25/15 12:38pm Sunday 12:38pm

I suggest watching the video because those animated gifs are pretty misleading. To call this kicking and slapping is a stretch. As typical with soccer those players were milking the incident for all it's worth. And that's not to mention that the first guy was holding Ronaldo, which is what instigated all this. » 1/24/15 12:51pm Saturday 12:51pm

That map is complete bullshit, depicting a sea level rise that's roughly double the indicated rise. Within the US alone most of the mid-west lies above 300m. And what happened to all the mountains on the eastern seaboard that easily rise above 1000m? It's the same in Europe, there are numerous mountain ranges and… » 1/24/15 12:29pm Saturday 12:29pm

Interestingly, here in the north east over the past few years the temperature extremes have leveled off. The summers don't get as hot as they used to, but the winters also aren't as bitterly cold. We'll get a couple of really hot or cold days, but it doesn't last for weeks like it used to. » 1/16/15 12:44pm 1/16/15 12:44pm

If I had to choose between paying to keep factories open and paying for welfare, I'd choose the former. This was a fundamental aspect of the New Deal, support people by giving them jobs. At least we're getting something for the expense and those people are productive and acquiring skills. » 1/15/15 2:02pm 1/15/15 2:02pm

I think I was about 10 years old when I realized that the Oscars is the equivalent of Hollywood engaging in public masturbation. It's a multi-hour commercial where the movie industry pats itself on the back and credit is rarely given to those who deserve it most. Once I realized that I stopped caring about the Oscars. » 1/15/15 12:31pm 1/15/15 12:31pm

That's bullshit. For frivolous stuff like this in Europe you typically have to pay for it out of your own pocket. I think they do a better job of preventing abuses in Europe, but it's still fairly rampant. And Europeans are always outraged when it happens. They'd be pissed if they found out their tax dollars went to… » 1/14/15 1:36pm 1/14/15 1:36pm

I think the NSX looks good, especially in red, but the design is definitely on the cusp of looking dated. It's definitely a product of the era in which it was designed and unfortunately Acura took too putting the car into production. The cars which inspired this design, namely the R8, is on the verge of being… » 1/12/15 6:01pm 1/12/15 6:01pm

The same designer is responsible for both revolvers although I think he died before the Rhino was finished. Also, every review I've ever found says that the Rhino is comfortable to handle but the recoil does tend to go right into your hand. Apparently people are a fan of the rubber grip because they mitigate a lot of… » 1/12/15 5:53pm 1/12/15 5:53pm

This car looks really good in red. Although, it's taken far too long to be released. While it looks the part, it's definitely on the trail end of this era of sports car styling. Automakers are already moving on and once replacements to the Nissan GT-R, Ferrari 458 and Audi R8 are revealed I expect that the NSX will… » 1/12/15 12:51pm 1/12/15 12:51pm

I'm not sure why you have your panties in a wad. Every single supercar review nowadays mentions MPG. As others have mentioned, fuel economy is a good indicator of technological progress. Furthermore, automakers are being bound by increasingly strict fuel economy standards so it's become critical that every single… » 1/12/15 11:34am 1/12/15 11:34am
