    I always thought that he could get them in the air but they needed to pedal to actually move.

    How would peddling a bike in mid air propel them forward?

    How does an extraterrestrial levitate them? What do Reese's Pieces have to do with anything? What the hell was Peter Coyote thinking?

    Look, Pete Coyote was on the right side. Here’s he’s got an illegal alien with some kind of unknown contagion, and possible biological weapons of mass destruction. Containment is the only option.

    Little ET dude was just growing a little weed and minding his own business, not hurting anyone, and those NASA fucks had to come in and start messing with his shit.

    If a species capable of interstellar travel can't figure out cell phones, bootstraps or GPS trackers, they deserve to die on earth. Fuck ET. All he did was land on earth and immediately asks for handouts.

    A space wall protected by space force is a great idea, although not full proof.

    I don't get why it is major news when some executive leaves a tech company. Who cares? Wooooo problems at bay at Facebook! Nobody cares when an executive leaves my company.

    Yeah, execs leave all the time. It’s actually rarer when they don’t leave for a long time. But since FB is a company that people like to flog (deservedly so), then it’s spun as the rats are deserting the sinking ship.

    I have a spin-off rant to this. It’s so dumb to read all the insider trading reports from the first quarter of every year. They’re all “ooooo the CEO just sold 100k shares. Waaaa the CFO sold 50k! What do they know that they’re not telling us??”

    If you’re a financial reporter and are a half-point above utter fucking dumbass, you know that exec compensation is mostly variable/stock, and Q1 is when stock awards vest. These people are selling to get the cash flow to support their normal lifestyle. You should see this every year

    I'm driving down a 4 lane (each way) highway in the middle left lane. The line of cars is doing 75 in a 60. The left lane is completely open. Someone comes up from behind doing about 95 and rather than go into the left lane, he passes in the middle right lane. Because of this he will confirm upon people doing 60 and proceeds to dart between two cars to get into the left lane.

    Why not just go into the left lane to begin with? If you're doing 50%+ over the speed limit why do you think the middle/right lanes are a good place for you?
