Garbage in, garbage out

“Goddamnit, he wants to ‘drive’ again, which means he just sits there, turning the wheel back and forth, making ‘vroom-vroom’ noises and honking the fucking horn. Later he’ll want us to run over a few homeless dudes panhandling in the median, maybe pick up a few hookers down on Central. Jesus. We’re gonna be out here all day.”

Monday is trash pickup day here in the cul-de-sac.

In Rio Gabacho, however, the trash is being delivered.

The good news is, the Mickey D’s on NM 528 is gonna make bank today. Unless he stiffs them, which wouldn’t surprise anyone who’s ever done business with the crooked sonofabitch. One of the SS boys flashes a piece in the drive-thru and that’s that. Another free Happy Meal for ’Is Lardship. So much winning.

The usual protests are planned, of course. Here’s hoping the anarchists stay home, waxing their weasels into their black bandanas and denying the media its both-sides narrative, and that the hippies at Tiguex Park have a couple new chants worked up for the TV cameras. I don’t care how much weed you smoke, that “hey hey, ho ho” shit hit its sell-by date in the Nixon administration.

    Hey, hey, ho, ho, instant coffee’s gotta go!
    (Good morning, O’G. Did you solve the coffee crisis?)

      Ayuh. I dashed out and bought Son of Mr. Coffee, a $50 upgrade to the model that went west on us. Basically the same coffeemaker, but with an additional water filter, which can’t hurt around here, since the water is harder than the sidewalks.

      That original Mr. Coffee we bought for The House Back East® way back when. The Wirecutter folks like this model here, but Herself finds the reusable filters obnoxious to clean.

    Someone oughta fly a massive Trump-baby hot-air balloon to welcome Orange Hitler to the state.

      The SS boyos must love jetting into a free-fire zone like ABQ with Ginger Hitler & His Rolling Blunder Revue.

      “Shit, I did three tours in Afghanistan and I’d rather be there than here. We were taking small-arms fire from the Sunport all the way to Rio Rauncho. Carl here had to shoot one of those median beggars when he refused to make change for a dollar.”

    So the Left wants to have its protest 20 miles away in a “safe space”? My god, who will be bringing the therapy animals and stuffed bunnies?

    Well POG, what is the difference between a rant and a rave? I’ve always been partial to raving meself as in the Small Faces Lazy Sunday lick
    A wouldn’t it be nice
    To get on with me neighbors
    But they make it very clear
    They’ve got no room for ravers

    Back at you, SAO’

    Most of what I have read about speed of being hit vs fatality rate is for pedestrians and there are a lot of publications out there, many recycling the same data. Here is a 2011 analysis from AAA.

    “…Results show that the average risk of severe injury for a pedestrian struck by a vehicle reaches 10% at an impact speed of 16 mph, 25% at 23 mph, 50% at 31 mph, 75% at 39 mph, and 90% at 46 mph. The average risk of death for a pedestrian reaches 10% at an impact speed of 23 mph, 25% at 32 mph, 50% at 42 mph, 75% at 50 mph, and 90% at 58 mph. Risks vary significantly by age. For example, the average risk of severe injury or death for a 70‐year old pedestrian struck by a car traveling at 25 mph is similar to the risk for a 30‐year‐old pedestrian struck at 35 mph….”

      Hence the need to lower urban speed limits to Vision Zero levels because urban is where a lot of people are hoofing or biking it.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Here in the Duke City you might see a motorist slow to 75 mph for a school zone. Maybe. If only to shoot someone.

      • khal spencer Says:

        Yep, and our culture gives a proverbial rat’s fanny over this problem since, well since everybody drives. When’s the last time people rallied for red light cameras and lower speed limits? Or pulling a driver license after a second DWI or third speeding ticket in five years? Or putting GPS linked speed governors that limit urban speeds in every new urban assault vehicle?

        When Liz Warren, Cory Booker, and their buddies say we should treat guns like we do cars, which is their latest vapid demand, I can see the gun death toll going from around 35k a year to 350k a year. Gee, I’m sorry I was sighting in my deer rifle with the target pinned to the fence on the school playground. You know, officer, accidents will happen. Now, where is my insurance card???
