Because calories are the only thing people consider when thinking about healthy food.

This is SUCH an insufferable point of view. You're seriously of the belief that all traffic tickets are valid and that citizens who gasp dare to fight these tickets in court is are not responsible people?

-----


My comments parent did say fighting "without a lawful defense." I'm pretty sure that fighting an invalid ticket is a lawful defense.

-----


This is such an unreasonable standard. There is literally no action I could take that would change the law beyond spending the vast majority of my time on it. I can't do this. Expecting people to drive 55 on an 8 lane fucking highway is insane. You support this is more insane. Stop.

-----


At that point why not just have officers approach a suspects car with a box with a button and two lights, press the button and if the light turns green, there is "reasonable suspicion"? Just have the light turn green everytime and they can always search you and F the 4th Amendment.

This is the biggest problem I have with Obamacare. Getting everyone insurance isn't that impressive if the insured still have bills like this. Why not cut out the middleman, reduce the waste of giving insurance companies tons of money, and just make healthcare free?

-----


If you look at the top of the bill, it seems like this person didn't ever get health insurance and the last minute applied for medicare in the hopes of getting covered. They probably are low enough income to get covered under Obamacare but probably thought they we never get sick.

-----


In other nations, universal health care is actually cheaper for the state per capita than our system in the US.

The US actually has higher per capita spending on healthcare and pharmaceuticals than any other OECD nation and public expenditure is only higher in the Netherlands and Norway.

I got the impression that the person wasn't insured.

Having glanced over some of the ( 14000+ ) comments, I haven't found any that would suggest otherwise. I really wish someone would clarify this.

-----


This isn't the bill that an insured would get though. I believe the maximum deductible under Obamacare is ~$6000.

-----


It's not a middle man, it's that insurance companies only cover so many things, so they bill everything and collect what the insurance company covers. To keep up the charade uninsured get bills like this, which they then take to some hospital board to get reduced to something 2-3X what an insurance company would pay.

This is such an insanely nitty complaint I can't even believe it. They are limited by batter technology and are doing the best they can.

While conservation is certainly the idea of EVs, they need to have certain performance characteristics before they are widely accepted. PR stunts like this get people more interested in a great thing.

But I suppose this is the internet so we just need to slam everything and insult everyone. :\

-----


The fuse to make this work is an extra $10K. What battery pack or technology could be purchased for that?

"they need to have certain performance characteristics before they are widely accepted"

EVs need to be able to do 0-60 in 2.8s to be widely accepted??

-----


> EVs need to be able to do 0-60 in 2.8s to be widely accepted??

ryguytilidie's comment, in context, included this explanation: "PR stunts like this get people more interested in a great thing."

And yes, products which are new and different generally need good PR in order to be accepted by consumers. Quite a lot of the press is talking about this today, which is what Tesla hoped to achieve.

Objecting to someone calling Jack Dorsey a visionary because you believe its hyperbole and then calling him a "competent product manager" seems just as, if not more disingenuous.

-----


Other than what I've read here I don't really know who Jack Dorsey is.

My point was based on the grandparent's own words: "You don't have to be Elon Musk to be a 'product visionary'. It's simply someone who's good at envisioning new products" which sounds to me like an abasement of the English language.

This reminds me of another battle I have apparently lost. Companies that have a "vision".

No you probably don't. You might have a plan, a goal or an ethos but with the exception of a small handful of companies- if you claim your's has a 'vision' then you're deluded or incurably pretentious.

I could just about live with 'mission' as at least that doesn't sound like you're claiming divine providence.

(If it's not immediately obvious that I'm British, bear our famed dislike of overstatement in mind. However plenty of UK companies seem to spout this nonsense: https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=site%3A.co.uk+"our+vision" )

-----


Calling someone who's "good at envisioning" a "visionary" is pretty straightforward English.

-----


I'm simply arguing that the meaning used to be reserved for really exceptional - now it's anyone with a product plan past next Tuesday.
