At 4pm the temp has gone up to 88f causing me to close the windows and turn on the AC.

Considering the accidents that are being racked up by Tesla something needs to be done about these overly hyped systems that are causing deaths.
All of the accidents i've looked at to date have been caused by the drivers not using the system according to the instructions in the owners manual
The word "autopilot" means to the general public crawl in the back seat and take a nap. If you need to read the manual first, then since Tesla doesn't have dealers, they should require just that before they hand over the keys.

Lightening strikes oil storage tank, but didn't someone warn them about dumping water on an oil fire? :-O

17 missing, dozens hurt as fire rages in Cuban oil tank farm.

Giant fans over the fire. Duh. Of course Castro can't buy AFFF.

It never rains in Southern California, but when it pours, man it pours.
A deluge brought “nearly an entire year’s worth of rain in one morning”

Just because a plane is missing a wheel doesn't mean that you need to exit it before landing. :-O

Mystery Surrounds Man's Death After He Exits Plane Mid-Air Before Aircraft Makes Emergency Landing.
Update: It's been confirmed that the man who fell/jumped from plane was the co-pilot.

Co-pilot dies after fall from plane in North Carolina.

Mystery still surrounds on how or why he fell.
The only thing that comes to mind was him hanging out of the aircraft to try to see the problem with the landing gear & losing his grip.


Much as it pains me to say it, the pilot needs to be investigated, just to be sure.

Hum. First observer to collapse the wave function. Hum. Youse can call it God. It need not be sentient. In fact, it can't be. It's real name is Dice. It is the only perfect random number generator in the universe. (All others are not random.) You claim God has to be perfect.

Y'all going to be mad. All this bovine excrement about good and evil is man made, no magic behind a curtain is necessary.

All these versions of God and all the various ways to get his attention should tell you that none of them are correct.

By the way, god's laws can't be broken. You, because you are matter, can't travel faster than light, gravity and electromagnetism act upon you ... No man made stuff about coveting your neighbor's wife.

This isn't satisfying to those that wrongly insist there must be a why for everything. Such as why Rump is fill in a descriptive adjective.
Except, there is, but we don't have the brain power to divine the why or use it. The first observation collapsed the wave function and everything is a result of that. We don't know what the observation was, where it happened, where it happened or what it was of. Know that and the universe is deterministic, without it perfectly random.

Have fun keeping track of every wave function interaction at the quantum scale across spacetime.

Ah the joyful output of plagiarists persists among extremists even today....

Wonder if that is a measure of their intelligence or lack thereof as they have to copy each other and can't even figure out how to invent new lies.

I wonder what details cause this state to be sued instead of others without these exceptions.
Look to which circuit court for a possible explanation.

TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi arrived in Taiwan late Tuesday, becoming the highest-ranking American official in 25 years to visit the self-ruled island claimed by China, which quickly announced that it would conduct military maneuvers in retaliation for her presence.


Sounds like China is going to waste oil, bought from Putin, to finance his war on Ukraine.
