A Mismatch Between Wikimedia's Pledge Drive and Its Cash On Hand?

dugancent Re:Not only that... (274 comments)

"Ability fix things". The tiny midwestern town that I was born in has a Wiki page that states it was devastated by fire in the 1960s. This never happened but it was devastated by a major flood in 1937, which it barely mentions. I corrected it and it was reversed stating that I needed sources..How do you source something that didn't happen? There was never a major fire.

I tried again a few years later (2012ish) and it was again reversed. I quit trying.

What Will It Take To Make Automated Vehicles Legal In the US?

dugancent Re:identify (320 comments)

If I see a deer that not moving, but is 20ft from the road, I slow down because I know it might decide to run in front of my car. It might also decide to stand there and not move. Reaction time has nothing to do with this.
