    If I had an old pickup with a heavy steel bumper it would be a good "experiment" to hit the brakes hard and see how quickly the Waymo reacts. For science of course.

    Or just get to work or the store or wherever. If you’ve got no place in particular to go, maybe stay the hell at home and stop bothering people. I’m liking being a grumpy old man.

    Dinking around without "intent to injure" at some level probably does help the beta testing, but people like the one described in that article remind me of people who opt their kids out of vaccinations. Facepalm. And the guy's in IT, too...probably shouldn't get any work or customers in the field ever again. I know I'd blackball him based on that article alone.

    I enjoy being a grumpy old hermit woman who has never been married and probably never will be (a lot of which has to do with my attitude on life by now), myself.

    Things I have caught myself saying within the last few months:

    "Kids are so disrespectful these days"
    "Leave them to their own devices then"
    "It's not my problem"
    "If they have nothing productive to do, then they should at least leave us alone" (in reference to my rural community)


    I'm only 32 :help:

    Well assuming the claim is true, that a Waymo almost hit his kid in their cul-de-sac, I can understand his anger. I don't think that's even in the same stratosphere as the ignorance that comes from the anti-vaxxer crowd.

    All the proof you need that hockey belongs in this cold, snowy market.

    Didn't see any snow in Glendale, did you? Even more proof the East Side is a better hockey market!

    On second thought, let's not go to Glendale. It is a silly place.

    The Max Comtois incident is an example of why I abhor the World Juniors. Our responsibility is to nurture children, not offer them up as human sacrifices to the Canadian hockey god. I can only hope that other hockey crazy countries do a better job than the Canadians in protecting their children.

    I’m sure these ultra competitive young athletes absolutely hate the big stage and the high stakes and playing at the absolute pinnacle of their age group. Poor them.

    Maxim Comtois would punch you in the neck for saying some soft ass **** like that to him. Then he’d flop on the ground and pretend your neck injured his fist.

    I hate diving. It's an infection that needs to stay in the NBA. It has no place in hockey. Thankfully the diving Smith is gone and I haven't seen OEL do it this year although I haven't seen every game. Hopefully he's quit doing that now that he's our captain.

    Misdirection, totally.

    The big stage doesn't include internet shaming. These are kids, not adults. They feel it.

    So you are completely misdirecting your angst with internet bullying on international sporting events? Got it. One has nothing to do with the other. Start an anti bullying thread.

    House of Comedy is holding a roast of Shane Doan on February 13. Tickets are $119-169 with the promise of known comedians and other Arizona athletes. Benefiting his foundation and the Arizona Coyotes Foundation. Too bad it's a weeknight.

    Elon has some good ideas, but not all of Elon's ideas are good ones. I don't think his tunnels with reduce traffic congestion at all. Has anyone done the analysis of how many cars one tunnel line could remove in an hour? It looks like a really inefficient system. Much less efficient than just a regular subway, which LA already has.
