Re: Self-driving Uber Car Total Disaster

Also apparently this week another Tesla ploughed while on autopilot.
Bizarre accident. The driver appears to have been using the car as one would ride a train. With no regard to the conducting of the vehicle!

Re: Tourist hell i chopper crashes.



Also, try to keep your personal effects (and/or appendages) from getting hung up in the controls.

Good luck.
I see what you did there.

This is a video I made based on the real time transcripts of the stalking, the shoot down, and the Soviet rescue missions to Moneron Island

Re: The Shoot Down of KAL 007

Bert, seven or so years ago I recall you were of the opinion that the plane had landed (or at least crashed with survivors) and that those survivors were likely still alive and had been brainwashed. Are you still of this opinion. If so, please tell us why.
Thanks

Re: Ejected families, dead rabbits, dragged doctors.

No I meant the opposite: Fedex' and UPS' pricing is straightforward and doesn't change based on who you ask or if you wait 10 minutes. Like it does with the pax airlines. :roll:

Yeah, yeah, blah, blah....you've done all the usual suspects.

Re: Norwegian exceptionalism

I purchased a Norwegian jacket this evening. It is made by Bergans.

I usually buy Swiss jackets (my favoured brand is Mammut) but I love this colourway.

Per, do you have a view on Bergans jackets?

This is a clickbait article about a non-issue. How many "extra seats" are really available from a slightly smaller lavatory?
