What an arrogant start to a summary. People who need to go out of their way to seem smarter usually aren't.

Is the Tesla Model 3 Actually Going To Cost $50,000?

kuzb Re:Maybe 40k (391 comments)

So you think the way to get people to drive EVs is to take more money away from them so it's harder to buy an electric vehicle?

Are you stupid?

No. Fuck this. It's not a milestone of flight, and it doesn't belong there in the least.

Why Atheists Need Captain Kirk

kuzb Re:Fallacy (922 comments)

Science doesn't explain things, it's just a framework to help with discovering the validity or invalidity of an idea. If you can't find a way to test something, you can't really apply science to it.

Why Atheists Need Captain Kirk

kuzb Re:Fallacy (922 comments)

Many religious people depart from science the moment it begins to conflict with their own insane views of how the world (and the universe) works. Some religious people feel that there is no contradiction between science and religion, and rationalize it as science discovering God's rules. Honestly I don't have a problem with this, since we don't really know who (if anyone) made the rules.

Atheists tend to like science because it's grounded in fact, and isn't bound to blind faith which I find is also reasonable. Religion has never really proven itself to be anything other than a source of control over people's lives and its value is at best, questionable.

Surprising Result of NYC Bike Lanes: Faster Traffic for Cars

kuzb Re:No surprises here (213 comments)

Our problem isn't with cyclists on the road, it's with how cyclists conduct themselves on the road. The real problem is that cyclists seem to think traffic laws don't apply to them and in doing so put everyone else - including themselves - at risk. You should be fined, have your bike confiscated, and be barred from riding if you're *ever* caught disobeying road rules. Especially a failure to signal, which is something cyclists constantly do. It's too bad you're too dense to understand this.

kuzb Re:Bikes lanes are nice (213 comments)

When you start observing traffic laws like every other person in a car or on a motorcycle, you can talk to me. Until then, go fuck yourself. You're a scourge on the roads.

Kickstarter's Problem: You Have To Make the Game Before You Ask For Money

kuzb Not unreasonable. (215 comments)

It's not unreasonable to see a prototype, or some work in the direction of the idea you're proposing. It's not unreasonable for people to expect some form of tangible proof that you can do what you claim you can do. This idea that it should be acceptable to place all of the risk on to the customer is ridiculous.

CBC Warns Canadians of "US Law Enforcement Money Extortion Program"

kuzb Re:law enforcement scams (462 comments)

Canada isn't trying to tell you anything. It's just warning Canadians that US cops are corrupt as fuck, and how to reduce the chances something bad could happen to them when travelling in the US.

Surprising Result of NYC Bike Lanes: Faster Traffic for Cars

kuzb Re:Bikes lanes are nice (213 comments)

Except it's a factor for everyone else when one of those non-signaling dipshits decides he's faster than my 2000 lbs machine. Bikers slow down traffic because everyone is afraid to be anywhere near them. They're unpredictable, can change direction very quickly, and almost never signal intent. Fuck cyclists.

GM To Introduce Hands-Free Driving In Cadillac Model

kuzb Re:wow (185 comments)

"I would love that feature on my car, when taking a long drive. It would prevent driving exhaustion."

If you're paying due attention to the road, no it wouldn't. What this does is provide you with a sense of security just false enough that you might *stop* paying attention at the wrong times.
