  1. Yeah, I imagine that the AGV that crushed my coworker to death made no mistakes and did exactly as programmed. It's tough work trying to get to 100% safe but I'm sure they will think of everything.
  2. This looks like my first but mine was a bit older style I think.
  3. Makes my joints hurt watching it! I'll probably need their drug.
  4. Heh heh... I was born in Texas. That might support your thesis.
  5. Wow, your glass is half full isn't it? Here I was thinking about World War II to get us out of it.
  6. Yeah, he got really fat too. You mention the economy from 1910 to 1925... kind of hard to think of that time without thinking of just a few years later and the depression that lasted almost as long. Not saying that is necessarily what follows but... ?
  7. Heresy w/SUB

    GREAT subs! I'd get 2 of whatever you can afford from REL https://rel.net/product-category/subwoofers/
  8. Statistically speaking I believe you. But I also believe that it is a fact that AV's will end up killing some people along the way. Maybe millions more will be saved sure. I just want people to stop selling it as 100% safe. In the future, from their safe insulated cocoons, people might look back on our risky lives in horror just as we might (if we could peer into the future) be disgusted by the lives that they have come to accept. I'm sure my forebears would ask a few questions of me... "what's your hurry?" "why do you waste your time on THAT?" "I gave you my good looks... why did you get so fat?"
  9. They've got a long way to go before I'd trust them on the snow and ice I see out there now. Of course, I see idiots in the ditch that I don't trust either. As far as lost jobs, we don't need coal or ice delivered to our homes anymore either. Our economy is full of jobs that didn't exist not that long ago. How many people working in IT? Auto repair?! That won't go away. Autonomous cars will still kill people... were just talking fewer (eventually). Maybe the statistics will look better. Road construction? Maybe it will slow down but they will need plenty of labor and $ to spend on the failing infrastructure we have now. How many potholes on the turnpikes you pay for now? "Freedom to endanger others" is quite a dramatic stretch, Dave. Of course, "pursuit of happiness" is an unalienable right but we can argue where the lines should be drawn for all sorts of activities. Banning texting while driving was a pretty good idea for example. Lots of good conversations to be had in the future... hopefully, our kids will be better at balancing and preserving our freedoms than we have for decades. Whoops! That was a bit political. How about I leave it at striving to survive for a life worth living? Mere survival should not be the only pursuit.
  10. Sonicaps are a bit bright in my opinion. Might be something else though
  11. Subwoofers are hard.

    REL subs can allow you connect to both LFE and speaker level to the same subs. You can switch between 2 channel and surround sound effortlessly. Otherwise, I wouldn't try using both the LFE and speaker level inputs at the same time unless the manufacturer says you can. For 2 channel I would not consider a single sub and a low level connection. I want a minimum of 2 subs and I'll use the speaker level inputs.
  12. This is it Guys

  13. lascalas very little bass

    Looks like February of 1987 (6th week of year). Those drivers and network came way after 1976.
  14. Just one speaker? I'd say the left one... if I get tired of that I'll move it to the right.
  15. WTB:Volti horns BMS -4592 midranges

    Looks like this was discussed here a couple of years ago. Do you think beaming would be a problem?
