    [–] LPT: Texans, you are about to experience the worst potholes many of you have ever seen. Make sure your tire pressure is correct for your vehicles, drive slowly, give plenty of distance between your vehicle and the one in front of you, and don't trust puddles.

    That's not how salt on roads works. It's not for grip like sand. First, salt lowers the temperature required to freeze water making it less likely to turn into ice. Second, salt dissolves in water so it can't grind and do anything like sand does. Salts contribution to potholes is that it is more likely to let water into the road in freezing conditions, but it is only one factor, a small one, that contributes to potholes. The 80° swing between sub freezing temperatures and 70° weather is going to cause buckling under roads leading to potholes. That is a much bigger factor than salt.

    It's cool. I have family in Houston and have driven the state many times. I hate to be this way, but, no... you don't got this. Those potholes only happen in certain areas. The potholes that are coming are going to happen everywhere. I am not trying to be combative, but there are potholes that make you go bump, and then there are potholes that can roll your car. The latter are coming, and they are coming everywhere.

    The kind of potholes you can expect with this kind of temperature swing are not going to be tiny, cute little things. The roads have been frozen for a few days, but with the sudden warm weather, the surfaces of the roads are warming up a LOT faster than the material underneath. This is going to tear up the roads, like, violently. Some potholes are going to be huge, and I mean gargantuan. Homeless people are going to move into them and they will swallow compact cars whole. Okay, hyperbole aside, it is not unusual to see potholes feet deep (not inches: feet). They can total cars and even flip trucks under the right conditions (high-rise trucks need to be especially careful due to their high center of gravity). If you see a large pothole, call your road commission or whoever needs to be aware of them. Don't assume they know... there are going to be a lot.

    Credit where credit due: we are not losing, we are getting beat. Coaching, offense, and defense. The Bucs are just plain beating us.

    Please don't do this. It's exactly what San Francisco said about the game last year.

    Actually... Yes. Working mother, living her dream, yet still being a mother at the most inconvenient time. Very cool pic. Totally think about her differently and with great respect.

    [–] Pilots of Reddit, what’s a flight you’ll never forget? this1tyme 5 points ago in AskReddit

    My first solo. Two touch and goes and a full stop landing. The first touch and go went absolutely perfectly. the second touch and go I was completely overconfident and botched the landing. Like, three wheel rocking bad. I forgot to go flaps up. It was bad. My instructor even came on the radio and asked me what the hell I was doing. I honestly don't remember my third and final touchdown. All I can remember is taxing to station and seeing my instructor clapping as he approached the plane. Unbelievably, he'd seen worse.

    Funny, because all I heard for the last four years was some bullshit about her emails and benghazi. Your whining about whataboutism would be much cuter if it wasn't oozing with hypocrisy.

    [–] Rape of Nanjing or the Nanjing Massacre this1tyme 1 points ago in history

    You need to read up a bit more about how bad the japanese were to the Chinese. This is not an apples to apples discussion. Rape was the tip of the iceberg of the atrocious actions inflicted upon the Chinese. Look up Unit 731. It will keep you up nights.

    [–] When a band only gives you 30 seconds to audition this1tyme 0 points ago in videos

    Sorry, we're looking for less of a Guitar Hero and more of a Rock Band. We hear Dance Dance Revolution needs a guitarist though. Why don't you try them.
