Airplanes and Electronics

Everytime you get on an airplane, you always have to turn off your electronic devices because "it will interfere with the planes" or whatever dumb reason they have. Nobody really knows why you have to turn them off. Well I just read an article that explains how that is just dumb. Airplanes are designed to withstand 100 volts of electrical interference. Most devices put out considerably less than 1 volt of interference.

I would like to get a plane full of people to all leave their phones on, radio and all, and see if they notice any interference or if the plane crashes. Need to test those theories of interference.

Anyway, here is the link to said article. Disruptions: Norelco on Takeoff? Fine. Kindle? No.

Concept Cars

This isn't a bunch of pictures of concept cars. Sorry.

However, I do ask a question...why in the fu*k do they have awesome concept art for cars, then pump out shit cars that I have no idea why someone would buy something so damn ugly? You know what I'm talking about. I'm fairly positive it doesn't cost them any more to produce a car with an awesome design as opposed to the turd design that someones 4 year old drew.

I can understand some designs not being economical. I won't argue that one, except for the more expensive cars, but for the standard joe car, why can't they just use a design that will make people jizz themselves when they see it really exists and go buy it?

I'll admit, cars have gotten better as a whole, but at the same time, I think there are fewer awesome looking cars out there. Not until the latest models of Mustang and Camaro have they produced anything that has been really epic imo. I'm sure most people miss the muscle cars, and would love to have an old 69' Camaro or Mustang. I don't understand why they finally decided to start making cars that reminds us of those cars which are now over 40 years old.

Now if they would work on making their eco and electric car designs better. Those things are lookers...but for the wrong reasons. Take the following two cars, both electric. One looks hot, the other, well, you won't be taking any chicks home in it anytime soon...

Tesla Roadster

I have no idea what it is...

In conclusion, fuck you auto industry. You can make all your cars look damn good, but you choose not to for whatever reason. I don't care if your 4 year old drew the concept, it doesn't mean you have to use it.

Merry fu*king Christmas

Not a huge fan of holidays to begin with, but Christmas kind of sucks worse because everything closes. I can't go to the store and buy candy and have to wait an entire day before they open again. All I can do is sit at home in front of a computer playing video games suffering from a lack of candy. The torture I go through on the holidays. Its just awful.
