    They should go bankrupt--how many babies and people breathed in the powder, I wonder? Johnson & Johnson stock tanks amid report company knew since '70s its baby powder contained asbestos By: Jared Leone Johnson & Johnson has promoted its baby powder as a safe and gentle product for use on babies and adults even as the company knew for decades that the product contains carcinogens, according to an investigation by Reuters. Company reports, internal memos as well as trial and deposition documents indicate that at least from 1971 to the early 2000s, Johnson & Johnson’s raw talc and finished powders sometimes tested positive for small amounts of asbestos, Reuters reported.

    Don't worry about your spelling, you're perfectly readable. I don't know what to call it, I prevented a potential whiplash and much worse accident on the person causing it as I avoided their car. I like to drive, I like to drive in a little bit of a sporty way.. I use my indicators religiously, even if nobody is around, just a habit. I always try to be a social driver and I anticipate traffic like a motorcyclist, I don't assume people have seen me. I drive about 30.000miles a year through serious traffic for the past couple of years. Before that I drove a little less but I've never had any other accident beyond this experience. I never even made a scratch on my own or someone else car. I pay almost nothing for insurance as a result. P.S. I could post some dashcam footage of stuff I see. I don't ever save any of it and my dashcam only holds 1 day worth of driving (2hrs or so). Last week I almost downloaded some footage as someone passed me on a 40mph road at 80mph within a couple of inches of slamming head on into an oncoming semi. Which got me angry, I don't care about people killing themselves, but I do mind if they intend to take me with them or create a longer commute. You may notice I don't have too much empathy for people who want to risk everything for a few seconds of difference to their commute. I don't. I like driving but first and foremost is safety. First thing you learn on the German Autobahn, driving 150mph is to realise that people do stupid stuff and you have to minimise your exposure to that. In some cases, that means slowing down because you see a car behind a semi and they might pull in front of you... It's your own safety.

    I wear bi-focals because I'm long and short sighted. I've had to update them every few years as eyesight loss tends to increase with age. When I first got a set, lined, it threw me off for about two to three weeks. Now I don't even notice it. Eyes and brain adjusts. To keep them secure I use 'Cablez' which allows me to tighten, secured, or expand to lower to my neck. https://www.amazon.com/Cablz-Eyewear-Retainer-Black-12-Inch/dp/B0068A02LI/ref=asc_df_B0068A02LI/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312669841401&hvpos=1o3&hvnetw=g&hvrand=5918104921019990970&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9010198&hvtargid=pla-504097532767&psc=1

    Don't even give a road side breathalyzer. Those things are notorious for false reads. My standard reply, and I did it about three weeks ago.... "I'm sorry, I'm too old to dance like your monkey. If you want a breathalyzer you will have to take me to the station." I apparently wasn't worth much more of her time as she cautioned me about driving drunk or stoned and sent me on my way. Edit: I also presented my "lawyer on retainer card" along with my license.

    No victim, no crime. As far as death by motor vehicle there is already vehicular homocide or vehicular manslaughter laws. All that is needed is to prove criminal negligence. But, The NTSB is the government strong arm of M.A.D.D. An organization that has become full on prohibition oriented.

    That sort of thing still happens here in small towns, when people know each other. But it's getting rare. In the end, if you know people, you have a better shot at getting through to them and making them understand they put other peoples lives in danger. As well as the shame factor of letting down people 'close' to you. I prefer cops who would approach a situation like that. I mean, I don't think putting drunk drivers in jail and ruining any chances of a normal life for them is going to make the world a much better place. There must be better ways to handle safety on the road. Maybe the money used on jailing/etc drunk drivers could be used to pay for Ubers, let cops hand out tickets at clubs for people who came by car... ;)

    Every morning when I drive to work (about 40mi/40min-1hr) I see (almost)-accidents. They usually happen in the same places. For instance, we have a highway with two lanes on either side, grass and barrier in the middle. Semi-trucks are driving on the right lane (only allowed to overtake on the left here). Then you get an entrance to the highway... People going to work with no patience at all, simply moving two lanes at low speed not looking at any faster traffic on the left lane. In many cases forcing the car on the left lane to brake very hard. There is one location here where there is a multi-car pile up at least 4-6 times a year due to this exact issue. Similarly, people do not keep their distance, which I understand because lots of people don't think while driving or don't care. Especially drivers of delivery vans seem to wanna kill themselves. They regularly just throw their vehicle in front of you. I've had them put on their indicators and just push me off the road, which is why I have dual dash cams in my car, front and back. I may even add two more to film 60degrees to the side from the back window, capturing most of what is happening besides me. I got the dash cams after I hit a barrier... Caused by someone not paying attention, who instead of smashing into the car in front of them, threw their car in front of me. I was doing the speed limit, this car was much slower... I had to slam on the brakes on a wet road to avoid the car but got some serious oversteer as a result and kissed the barrier (A nice scratch but as I can drive a little I avoided totalling my car) after which I resumed full control again. Not my mistake but as I did not hit the other car and they didn't stop afterwards, I can't claim anything at my insurance. Pretty sure I could if I had the video.

    I get that, I don't think reciting the alphabet backwards is a very good way to judge peoples capability towards driving. I have no need to do that sober nor drunk so no particular skill either... Would you agree however it's more useful to look at peoples capabilities than some kind of (arbitrary) blood content ? I mean, the US Air Force used to give pilots amphetamines (not sure if that still is the case, Danke ?) to keep them concentrated/awake on long missions. Normal person uses this while driving, loses their license and goes to jail. Makes no sense to me.

    Well, you do have genetic discrepancies.. Not all people are XX or XY. There are a number of varieties. I don't think however that the people who want to have a different sex in their pasport necessarily are from those groups.

    Yea, isn't that a good thing that Trump pulled out and then we read this. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/climate-negotiators-reach-an-overtime-deal-to-keep-paris-pact-alive/ar-BBR0nlY?li=BBnbcA1 I think any celebrations is premature seeing as how Trump like to claim that he won negotiations. His problem with the Paris accord was that it was unfair to the US not that climate change alarmism is a scam not unlike the Y2K alarmism. Mark my words, he or someone in his cabinet will keep the Paris accord going.

    It all depends. I've seen a test on TV where they had a cop with a breathalizer, a prosecutor and an average Joe who likes a beer... At the end of the segment the average Joe was having fun while the prosecutor was nearly having a mental breakdown... It turned out that on a nice summer day, with a normal lunch, this average Joe could drink 9 normal pilsners before being over the limit. Every time waiting 10 minutes after finishing the beer and testing again, essentially drinking beer for an entire afternoon. The best part was this guy thought himself he definitely wasn't allowed to drive anymore after 6 beers (even though he felt okay). We also have the .05 limit here. I don't know where the limit should be. I prefer roadside sobriety tests over breathalizers to weed out people who can't drive, not perfect but at least it shows you're not able to function properly.

    The SCOTUS may try to find some way to rationalize this, so as to avoid having to make a very political decision (eliminating the welfare benefits). The court has very little influence and guards it jealously: i.e. by not ruling on politically important topics, unless they have Congressional support. Anyway, supposing the high court does affirm the lower court's decision, the GOP is going to be facing a serious mess. Their constituents like freeshit as much as the Dem's constituents. The GOP has only rhetorically opposed Obamacare; they dislike it because it has Obama's name in it.
