The Superbar / Re: minimum wage hikes(follow-up)...not so good
« Last post by 1.21 Jigawatts on Today at 07:28:53 AM »
Yeah, quadruple down why don't you.  Those vehicles are not remotely anything like what people have been discussing here.  They are neither autonomous nor can they even be driven without a person constantly manning the wheel. 

It is a collision avoidance system analogous to what is on most higher end vehicles. 

If you had said initially that thousands of Semi's have collision avoidance systems that can detect a possible collision before it happens, everyone here would have said, of course there are...what's your point.

You specified vehicles similar to Tesla's autopilot mode, that can largely drive themselves but require people to be in the driver's seat...indicating that most end up napping in the backseat.

Anyone who takes a nap away from the wheel in these vehicles is going to crash...and crash quickly.

Here was a chance for you to simply say you were wrong, you were misremembering an article or misstated numbers.  Instead you are jumping through flaming hoops to try to pretend you didn't say something incorrect.  It is quite sad.

What about you as it this statement you wrote does not square ...

The Semi's that are on the roads that can "drive themselves on interstates" are still test vehicles from really only 3 companies.  Let's run the numbers on how much it would cost for 1000's of test vehicles (or even simply 1000).

I look forward to some tortured definition of autonomous.  My definition is if you don't need your feet on the pedals (anti-collision) or hands on the wheel (lane assist), it's autonomous.  That is what the article describes and UPS alone has 2,600 of them.  There are thousands of trucks with this capability on the road today, not 3 test trucks.

Quit being Luddite like ATL who thinks the future of autos is pleasing unions and satisfying dealers.  This industry is going to have epic change and will bear little resemblance to its current self in a few years.

The Superbar / Re: High school shot clock in Wisconsin
« Last post by Sultan of Slap O' Fivin' on Today at 07:27:29 AM »
The coaches at my local high school are some of the biggest offenders of the stall.  Literally stand there and dribble or hold the ball for 2-3 straight minutes. The players look confused, the crowds from both schools get ornery.  I have seen fans walk out of the gym in frustration. I personally hate it. And yes, I understand the other coach has the ability to tell his players to closely guard the dribbler.

That said, isn't there a less drastic way to deter this situation?


How?  The only way you can get an offense to execute is to put a time limit on something.

The more and more Theo talks about continuing the roster build towards the deadline, the more and more I believe he did not think winning the WS was possible this season.


When did he think it was not possible?  Before the season?  Of course it was...

Now?  Perhaps not.

It's quite apparent to anyone who reads these boards that he is literally incapable of admitting he's wrong. And I'm using that word in the traditional sense - not the way it's frequently used these days.

If this discussion keeps going, he's likely to start citing statistics about power steering or automatic transmissions.

The Superbar / Re: Cubs Fans, Worried Yet?
« Last post by MUEng92 on Today at 06:20:36 AM »
Worried?  I was worried 7 years ago when i reached my forties and they hadn't sniffed the WS in my lifetime. 

Now I'm annoyed that they showed us how well they can play and now aren't playing anywhere near that level.

They couldn't implement this until after Bo and UW parted ways.    He would never have allowed it.

Man o' man, come back in 'bout 15 years when you have some seasonin' in ya. Bet you'll sing a different toone, hey?

It has nothing to do with seasoning, and like tower, I've seen exactly what money can go for. If I give someone money, what they do with it is their choice.

Kid looks like a big badger fan from his twitter. Also called MU university of Marquette.

He probably doesn't want to go to college in upper Michigan.
