    [–] Judge refuses to dismiss Secret Service agent's suit alleging he was detained because he is black keepcrazy 75 points ago in news

    Nono... they let him go, and then PULLED HIM OVER AGAIN and asked for identification as if they hadn’t seen him before!!!!

    [–] Tesla will soon have a 400-mile electric car and you don’t need it. Range anxiety is, for the most part, an education problem. 200 miles of range is more than enough for well over 95% of the population. The vast majority of trips in North America are less than 30 miles. keepcrazy 0 points ago in energy

    Absolutely all true. But

    • not every place has a charger.
    • they can be busy
    • Charging speeds vary dramatically between charger types.

    Bottom line, if your destination doesn’t have a charger of some sort or it’s not available. You’re going to have range anxiety/stress regardless of whether you have a 400 mile battery or a 200 mile battery.

    Source: been there, done that.

    Honestly, with a 200 mile car and super chargers along the way, a 500 mile trip is not a big deal. The problem is more about having a way to charge at your destination.

    Super chargers will absolutely get you there, but once you’re there, you need to refill overnight or it’s gunna be stressful. And a 500 mile battery won’t solve that problem.

    [–] If we are ever visited by aliens, someone will cook and eat one just so that they can say they did it. keepcrazy 1 points ago in Showerthoughts

    They didn’t say they’d have children with them.... they just want to have sex with them.... it only requires aliens to have some sort of orifice or protrusion...

    [–] What “survival tip” should you NEVER use? keepcrazy 6 points ago in AskReddit

    Lol, I’m pretty sure the best recommendation in a snow storm is to take shelter in a tree well.

    When a tree drops it’s snow the branches deflect the snow outwards and you remain protected. It can just be really hard to get out, but you’ll survive the night.

    [–] The man I love told me I was too fat for him today keepcrazy 6 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    This is a fantastic answer. To add to it, as people age, it becomes increasingly more difficult to stay fit. It takes effort and time and each of these becomes more precious.

    He will need to take over some of your responsibilities to allow you the time to work out and work on yourself and you will need to do the same for him.

    [–] UH-60 trims tree during Fred North shoot. keepcrazy 1 points ago in Helicopters

    It most likely compromised a blade!

    Yes, this is very dangerous!!

    Think of a tree with branches that long... to support the branches, they’re, what? 3” diameter? Doesn’t seem like much.... but a 2x4 is 3 1/2 inches in diameter.... would you beat on a helicopter with a 2x4? You think a helicopter blade can survive a 2x4? Yeah, it’ll be damaged by a 3” or even a 2” branch too!!

    [–] Pfizer had clues its blockbuster drug could prevent Alzheimer’s. Why didn’t it tell the world? keepcrazy 1 points ago in EverythingScience

    It’s not... it’s on purpose of use as well.

    Here is an interesting article discussing it:

    http://patentblog.kluweriplaw.com/2012/05/21/u-s-courts-look-at-method-of-use-patents-in-generic-druganda-litigation/

    I was initially referring to another article where a cancer drug recently got a patent extension for a different purpose by the manufacturer, but I can’t find that article now.

    The above article also talks about extending drug patents but not for the reasons I was referring to. Nevertheless, it is an interesting discussion about drug patents if you can parse it.

    [–] Pfizer had clues its blockbuster drug could prevent Alzheimer’s. Why didn’t it tell the world? keepcrazy 1 points ago in EverythingScience

    Getting a patent has nothing to do with FDA approval. They can renew the patent with a new purpose and lock everyone out of manufacturing the drug for any purpose while still pursuing FDA certification on the new purpose.

    That’s why drugs are so expensive and generics so rare.

    [–] Pfizer had clues its blockbuster drug could prevent Alzheimer’s. Why didn’t it tell the world? keepcrazy 3 points ago in EverythingScience

    They can re-patent it as an Alzheimer’s cure and continue their monopoly. They probably already have, it just hasn’t been approved yet.

    Yeah, but old people don’t have the reaction time to go 80... the world is much safer when they go 50.

    [–] Tesla is not dying, or, 'beware of the Tesla smear'. keepcrazy 9 points ago in energy

    But.... the S DID pay for the X and the X&S DID pay for the 3. These cars exist, right? And a fuckton of new infrastructure exists too.

    Just because the S/X paid for the 3, doesn’t mean they’d turn a profit. It either pays for the next model or the infrastructure but they can’t pay for everything.

    But, to your point, they could certainly manage investor expectations much better.

    [–] Tesla is not dying, or, 'beware of the Tesla smear'. keepcrazy 15 points ago in energy

    https://www.statista.com/statistics/502208/tesla-quarterly-vehicle-deliveries/

    Yeah, that’s some astounding year over year growth in a market where competitors are either stagnant or shrinking.

    Anyone saying Tesla is dead is an idiot or troll.

    Add a recent announcement that the cost of lithium is going to be dropping some 70% and They have a bright future.

    Tesla’s biggest problem, ironically, is it’s growth. Car companies require a LOT of infrastructure. Service centers, parts warehouses, delivery centers, etc. That infrastructure takes time to build no matter how you slice it.

    But they’re making that investment, and that’s why they don’t have a profit.

    [–] China reportedly puts US soy purchases on hold as trade war escalates keepcrazy 3 points ago in Economics

    Yes, among many, many other things. Actually look up how soy sauce is made, it’s pretty fascinating!!

    [–] China reportedly puts US soy purchases on hold as trade war escalates keepcrazy 9 points ago in Economics

    This is simply not true. Overall imports of soy by China are down 14% from the same time last year, but US imports are down 95% from last year.
