codepunk Re:Educational Post (109 comments)

Exactly if the ship would have been weapons free and engaging with missiles and CIWS that drone would have been turned into a shredded fireball.

Two Sailors Injured When Drone Crashes Into US Navy Guided Missile Cruiser

codepunk Re:armor on the struck ship was disappointing (109 comments)

Well being that it is a expensive drone I doubt they had weapons free on it. Had they been able to engage with with VLS surface to air missiles and CIWS it would have been shredded to bits.

U.S. Government: Sorry, We're Closed

codepunk Re:Fucking idiots (1532 comments)

That $300 dollar plan you speak of likely has a deductible of around 6k as well. So not only are you forced to buy it but you are forced to buy it, for the most part it is worthless to you. Now some idiot is like to chime in here and start talking about subsidies, well subsidies are not monthly checks, bill collectors however work in the here and now.

codepunk Re:I find it hilarious... (452 comments)

6,000 gallons that is what roughly 24k in cash now add interest vs the price of a standard car and the math does not work out well.

codepunk Re:The best thing about Tesla so far (452 comments)

I might love one also if it did not involve the reality that what I would be doing is paying for fuel for the life of the car up front including interest.

The NSA: Never Not Watching

codepunk Obama (568 comments)

"You've grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that's at the root of all our problems," Obama said. "You should reject these voices. Because what these suggest is that somehow our brave, creative, unique experiment in self-rule is just a sham with which we can't be trusted."

Tesla To Blanket US With Superchargers In Two Years

codepunk Re:As far as I'm concerned . . . (311 comments)

Exactly it is like me going to a car dealership and buying the car and the gas for the life of it and paying interest on both up front. Then we add another 5K paid by someone else all for the luxury of having a low range inconvenient vehicle. I have nothing against electric vehicles but they are going to have to get hell of a lot more practical before I jump into one.
