    I just can't get over you expecting to meet British colonial women in Norfolk Virginia. Hehe. Carry on.

    [–] Backwoods Surprise jrob323 1 points ago in beholdthemasterrace

    I didn't downvote you. I just upvoted you, if that makes you feel better.

    And I don't have any arrogance. I'm just a run of the mill idiot. But disparaging an entire city for rampant inbreeding, and apparently thinking there were going to be British girls there... that's just bizarre. I don't think Norfolk Virginia has an unusual level of 'severe mental deficiencies and physical abnormalities' due to inbreeding. I think you said something absurd and I pointed it out. And in retrospect, that might not have been the dumbest fucking thing I ever heard. It might be, but I can't be certain. So for that comment, I'm sorry.

    You've definitely had a triple serving of the Musk kool-aid. See you on Mars!

    Clearly, my friend, you’re not understanding that just because one can certainly doesn’t mean one should.

    You said Notre Dame wasn't possible to insure. I then replied "Bullshit". You now freely admit it could have been insured, but wasn't, based (presumably) on a risk calculation by the French government.

    There's a couple of things going on here. The Catholic Church uses this 'monument' to make money, and they're already very rich. The French government owns it, and enjoys the tourism it attracts, and through their stunning negligence it has burned up. So I was primarily calling bullshit on your assertion that it couldn't be insured, and secondarily agreeing with OP that it's a travesty that donations will be used to repair it.

    As if it could be repaired, which it can't be.

    Looks like they upgraded to the BendOMatic 4000 but he's still stuck using the StraightOMatic 1500 with it.

    Makes for a long day.

    Whatever you have to tell yourself I guess. You're being as anti-scientific as that idiot on Facebook.

    It doesn’t seem like a stretch to say that maintaining major cultural sites that bring in tourists help to support the French economy and 3 million people’s jobs.

    That responsibility should have included installing effective fire alarms and fire suppression systems. Not to mention hiring responsible contractors. This was a colossal fuckup.

    It’s neither possible nor realistic to insure an 800 year old monument.

    I'm calling bullshit on that, my friend. You can insure anything. Since the state owns the property, they simply considered it self-insured.

    And the Catholic Church might as well own Notre Dame. They run it and conduct services there, and collect tithes and donations. Conveniently, the state covers maintenance costs.

    Wait.. you thought Norfolk Virginia was going to have British people because it was a former colony?

    That's the dumbest fucking thing I think I've ever heard.

    Meet a lot of Dutch folk when you were in NYC? Did you learn to speak their language?

    Not OP but...

    • He can't make tunnels for anything like the budget he's talking about. He's using standard boring machines and neither he nor his company have any competence whatsoever in tunnels

    • There's absolutely no reason to believe the price to ride whatever he might come up with will be anywhere in the ballpark of typical public transit fares

    • The first time he calls a public transport planner a pedophile, it will probably be game over

    [–] Elon Musk’s Boring Company Inches Closer to Making Hyperloop a Reality jrob323 11 points ago in technology

    Has Musk stumbled upon a way to bore tunnels more efficiently, using standard boring machines?

    I can’t think of anything more hellish and demeaning than working some unstimulating office job where you have to beg for permission to do anything and be there for most of your waking life

    You may have shorter hours, but I think you're out front on the hellish and demeaning aspect ;)

    Even if you got a degree, you are not qualified to answer every question in every subject your children might have.

    You're asserting that most K-12 teachers have specialized degrees? C'mon now.

    Then just sit back and enjoy the ride, safe in the knowledge that if anything happens, you'll be blamed for inattention and failing to grab the steering wheel in a split second.

    You're right, but that would be difficult with his newfound fame as a boy toy. Also the fact that Pete Davidson is now considered hot proves we're living in the end times.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the heaviest drinking 20% were consuming 80% of the alcohol. That's how bad it's gotten.

    Edit: I love the Australian people, I truly do. I want to believe they can do better. But I have to admit... I don't think these numbers are going to change anytime soon.

    I think, aside from the fire, the renovations are going really well.
