For help on how to follow a comic title,
I always reset the trip meter. A full tank gives me about 330-360 miles. I usually refill at 250-270 miles, unless I’m going a fair distance. Then I make sure the tank is full even if the trip count was under 100.
I usually make an 80 mile round trip twice a week and a 140 mile round trip once a week. Occasionally I do a 300 mile round trip. No, I’m not going to get an EV any time soon, not until EVs can do 300 miles on one charge and can recharge in under half an hour. Which ain’t happening.
The last time an ubervegan said ‘Meat is. murder’ to me, I said ‘You look as though you’d go well with some lima beans and a nice chianti’. For some reason the ubervegan departed shortly thereafter, and I’ve never seen him again. Such a pity.
Novak Djokovic #1, by a mile. Antonio Brown and Aaron Rogers tied, but well behind the Joker.
Mine are also Win11 proof. A 3rd generation and a 6th generation CPU, wrong version of the TPM, other issues. The 3rd gen is a quad-core i5. running at 3.4 GHz, plenty fast enough for what I want it to do. The 6th gen is a 6 core i7, running Hyperthreading so it thinks that there are 12 cores, at 3.6 GHz. Faster than I need. I’ll be sitting on Win 10 until it runs out of support, then I’ll probably Ubuntu the machines.
Nope. Apple has your money already, as you bought Apple hardware. Microsoft wants your money. Apple has no need for strange clauses in the EULA..
Sad Nad is too smart to pull this. He’d know that he’d get stuck with all kinds of delinquents that the parents would be glad to see the backs of, and he’d end up paying the parents to take ’em back.
Have a look at https://impact.ese.ic.ac.uk/ImpactEarth/ where Imperial College London and Perdue University put up an impact calculator. Lots and lots of rocks do close flybys. Mostly they’re so small that they burn up in the atmosphere. There are a few big boys which could make it to the ground, and a few of those could cause serious problems. The really dangerous boys are long-period comets (they combine high velocity relative to Earth with substantial mass, kinetic energy is half mass times velocity squared, so that high velocity is what counts) and long-period comets are hard to detect before doing something about them is very difficult. Long-period comets are also quite rare.
Heh. Belize, formerly British Honduras. Right next to Guatemala. In the late 1970s, as independence from Britain loomed in the near distance, Guatemala ‘found’ a map from a long time ago, waited for the ink to dry, and claimed part of Belize. The part which might have oil in it. Belize refused to let go of Mother England without ‘assurances’. HM Gov sent a battalion of Gurkhas and a few Harriers; shortly thereafter, Argentina grabbed the Falklands, and Gurkhas and Harriers were proven to be a combination Latin American governments challenge at their peril. Guatemala complained about British Imperialism; the Gurkhas went a little closer to the border, the Harriers got some of the nice new missiles that had been used so effectively against Argentina, Maggie Thatcher got out her iron handbag, and Guatemala shut up. No-one actually drilled for oil until about 2006; the Gurkhas and the Harriers were long gone, but HM Gov sends the Royal Marines to ‘train’ on a regular basis; the RM was also quite prominent against Argentina. And every now and again some Gurkhas make a quick visit. Guatemala’s alleged map also managed to irritate Mexico; apparently part of Mexico should be Guatemalan territory, too. Mexico has their own old maps, which disagree with Guatemala’s maps, and is not impressed.
Show where the rulebooks says that you can’t do that.
Hmm. No Luann for 1 Jan or 2 Jan. Hmm.
