    I thought they got rid of the Chevy Bolt? Maybe it was a different one. Hopefully there will be some good choices in the next 2-5 years.

    Ugh, all I want is a Tesla quality Electric Vehicle that isn't a Tesla. Rivian is looking promising, but I haven't looked too closely at them.

    I hate living in the south, it gets way too damn hot in the Summer.

    Anyway, the last gasp of humidity and heat seemed to finally end with the beginning of September. My running mileage dropped way off the last month and a half or so but last week and this one the weather have been beautiful and slowly my mileage is creeping back up. Hoping I can get back in the swing of thing and back on track for my mileage goal of the year.

    The 20th amendment states that the President and Vice Presidents terms end at noon on the 20th day of January.

    If a new president isn't sworn in then the next person in line becomes president, so Speaker of the House. I should make clear that it's incredibly improbable that it reaches this point, but it is still a thing.

    Here is a good article on just what it would take to get there and how unlikely it is.

    I'm less worried about a peaceful transition than I am a muddled/confused election result like mentioned in The Atlantic article from yesterday.

    My hope (and several kind users here have been kind enough to point out how wrong I could be about this) is that if the election results are clear in a Trump loss, then the people around him (secret service, congress, etc) will do what needs to be done to remove him. The constitution is very clear about when a presidents term ends and what happens if a new president isn't sworn in.

    Oh believe me, I'm not on the police side, nor do I 100% believe that the record is totally correct, just wanted to bring up something I'd heard.

    I also remember back when these protests kicked off hearing reports that Walker fired at the ground/lower body as "warning shots" like you're supposed to do(?), while the police were shooting at upper bodies/for the head.

    I don't know, all I know is I'm hoping they release more information on the investigation to help provide some transparency.

    Show me in the rule book where it says a dog CAN'T be a doctor??

    COMING FALL OF 2020, AIR BUD 5: AIR BUD MD


    Anyway, this looks interesting. Assuming it works it could probably allow for some travel to open back up sooner between countries that have lower rates already.

    Passengers who agree to take a free test under the voluntary program in Helsinki do not have direct physical contact with a dog.

    Aww man :(

    I am shocked that people actually send this to their coworkers.

    I actually agree with what you're saying about company culture and such, but I also think there can still be a place/reason for making people aware that a dangling hello is not needed.

    Our company moved to Slack within the last year, and then with COVID and everyone being remote they rushed through some Slack education for everyone to do and one of the things they did stress was the basic concept behind nohello.com. Although I suppose when you consider we still have people in this 10k+ person company that feel the need to @channel or not use Threads constantly means there are bigger fish to fry.

    It's a shame we sold Martinez, but you absolutely can't fault him for wanting to leave to be #1 after 10 years at the club.

    It sounds like Runarsson will only be our #2 for a short while as we're still hoping to sign the Brentford Goalkeeper, and then he'll probably drop to our #3.
