    [–] Gaters gonna gate. TS_SI_TK_NOFORN 7 points ago in pics

    I really like Travelers. But I have to admit, it's a little hard not thinking of the characters in their Stargate roles, especially with so many of them all together. I mean, they even had Burke, Orner, and Col. Chekov from SG-1 and a few from Atlantis. I'm actually on my 2nd watch through and noticed more I didn't pick up on the first time.

    I got a little nostalgic seeing all the SGU cast again. I was kinda hoping somebody like Netflix would pick up where SGU left off and continue the story line. There was so much they could have done with it.

    [–] PepsiCo reserves 100 Tesla Semis, likely at $20,000 a pop TS_SI_TK_NOFORN 34 points ago in Futurology

    I really hope these work out and catch on. I grew up in a small town that was littered with warehouses and the Department of Transportation estimated over 20,000 trucks a day used the 2-lane highway that went through my town, and about 3,000 of those trucks are sitting there idling at truck stops and the warehouse waiting for their loads.

    The fine particulate air pollution from all the trucks in my town got so bad that the American Lung Associated ranked it 14th of the 25 most polluted counties in America and the EPA began long-term monitoring. Every time they would propose and build a new warehouse, the number of people protesting it would increase, because the number of people diagnosed with respiratory disorders was beginning to skyrocket.

    I'm one of the lucky residents who developed asthma because of the air pollution for trucks. And this past year, I ended up in the ER or Urgent Care at least 4 times because I didn't have insurance to get my prescriptions, one of which would have cost me over $500 a month. So I'm really glad Tesla is making these, and I really hope they are successful and continue to trend.

    People don't realize how much pollution affects healthcare costs.

    [–] Ex-Arizona police officer acquitted of murder in shooting of unarmed man TS_SI_TK_NOFORN 1 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago) in news

    When I was a kid, about 12 years old, the Pennsylvania State Police had a summer camp at Ft. Indiantown Gap. It was kinda like a police academy for kids (fun camp, not juvenile delinquents). We did all kinds of stuff, morning PT every day, team building exercises, martial arts and K9 demonstrations, presentations by FBI, ATF, etc., marching, boating safety, A-10 practice bombing runs, state police fleet (cars, coroner van, mounted police -horse/motorcycle, helicopter, APC), all kinds of stuff.

    One of the few things that stands out in my memory his how to disarm someone coming at you and how you're supposed to arrest someone. This is what they taught a bunch of 12-year-old kids:

    1. Instruct Suspect to Raise Hands Above Head
    2. Instruct Suspect to Face Away From You
    3. Instruct Suspect to Drop to Knees (Or Lay Face Down, Arms Out, Palms Up)
    4. Instruct Suspect to Cross Legs Behind Back While Kneeling/Laying Down
    5. Instruct Suspect to Keep Hands Raised/Flat On Ground
    6. Approach Suspect
    7. Place Your Foot Between Suspect's Feet to Prevent Them From Standing
    8. Grab Suspects Wrist and In Fluid Motion, Bring Hand Down and Behind the Suspects Back While Placing Handcuffs On Wrist
    9. Bring Other Hand Down and Place Handcuffs On Wrist
    10. Ensure Cuffs Are on Tight Enough to Allow Blood Flow, and Lock Cuffs In Place
    11. Search Suspect and Ask if Anything On Them, Especially Needles or Knives
    12. Grab Suspect by Cuffs to Help Them Stand, and Detain Suspect in Vehicle

    You can tell from the way the cop was giving instructions that he is NOT cut out for police work. His fear was excessive and prevented him from giving clear and precise instructions for the suspect to follow. Anyone that handicapped by fear that they can't give clear instructions has no business being a cop.

    You MUST be able to give clear, precise instructions that the suspect can understand because in any situation a suspect may be impaired, whether it's a controlled substance, absolute fear of having a gun shoved in their face, or non-native English speaker.

    KISS - Keep It Simple Stupid.

    If I was trying to follow the instructions the cop gave, I probably would have been shot too. You can't give someone complex, confusing, or contradictory instructions while you're pointing a gun at them and expect them to understand/follow.

    I don't know if this cop washed out of boot camp or what, but he definitely isn't cut out to be a cop. Guy belongs in a Comcast Customer Service Call Center, not routinely put in dangerous situations.

    [–] (Tech) Issues with Assassins Creed Origins Crashing TS_SI_TK_NOFORN 1 points ago in xboxone

    I just had this happen to me for the 3rd time. I'm in Preview Beta, so I was wondering if it was the game itself or something with the Beta. I just finished Wolfenstein 2 without any issues, so I think it's AC.

    The first two happened when I was advancing the main quest, and just now it happened when I was on a side quest.

    [–] What was your school's 'incident'? TS_SI_TK_NOFORN 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Senior Prank - Students sent out a fake letter to parents on school letterhead saying that there were a limited number of hotel rooms and care packages available for students at senior prom and asked parents to donate condoms and lubricant, and to drop them off with the secretary at the high school office.

    "We realize students may participate in reckless physical behavior," it said. "As a result of this knowledge, the school will be renting a limited amount of hotel rooms for private parties. Throughout the dance, we will also be distributing a "Bubbler Condom Care Package' containing free condoms and a brochure about the dangers of unprotected sex."

    Sounds like Kramer's pizza idea, a restaurant where you make your own pies.

    "We give ya the dough, the sauce, the cheese, you pound it, slap it, flip it into the air, put your toppings on, and you slide it into the oven."

    [–] Salt Lake mayor goes under cover, stays in homeless shelter to get information about growing homelessness issues. TS_SI_TK_NOFORN 19 points ago in UpliftingNews

    I wish more politicians would do things like this.

    Congressman Leo Ryan (the one killed during the Jonestown massacre), after the Watts Riots of 1965, (then Assemblyman Ryan) went to the area and took a job as a substitute school teacher to investigate and document conditions in the area. In 1970, using a pseudonym, Ryan had himself arrested, detained, and strip searched to investigate conditions in the California prison system. He stayed as an inmate for ten days in the Folsom Prison, while presiding as chairman on the Assembly committee that oversaw prison reform.

    I don't know a single politician in office today that would go half the lengths for their constituents as Congressman Ryan.

    Politicians today don't even have the courage to have town halls, let alone have the courage to stay in a for-profit prison under a pseudonym to fix the criminal justice system. Cowards. I'd love to see Paul Ryan or Mitch McConnell stay 10 days in Rikers or GITMO.

    [–] Prime Minister claims laws of mathematics 'do not apply' in Australia TS_SI_TK_NOFORN 1 points ago in nottheonion

    As a former NSA employee in Cyber Security, technical experts testifying at this hearing explain why this mentality is bad.

    This is the hearing where Rep. Ted Lieu told the law enforcement witnesses to "just follow the damn constitution" at the 1:30:13 time mark.

    These people don't understand you can't have it both ways. You can't have security with a back door just for the good guys.

    Makes me think of this gem from My Cousin Vinny, "do the laws of physics cease to exist on your stove?"

    Fucking morons.
