Very disturbing, I don't like to see over aggressive cops regardless of skin color.

I will say though that the white guy encountered a city cop, and those guys are usually more by the book. The black guy encountered a deputy sheriff, and in my experience, those guys are like the wild west. They go where they want, the do what they want, and they like to be over aggressive.

I was taken in at gunpoint by sheriff deputies for enjoying a campfire on my own property out on the farm. I was unarmed (also white, but that doesn't matter). They claimed someone reported a noise violation, which is impossible when we were just talking half a mile from the nearest neighbors. Who responds to a noise violation with guns drawn anyhow?

They didn't like me telling them they are trespassing, and need to leave immediately. Also told them not to smoke cigars out in the dry farm fields. Why they thought they needed a dozen deputies to respond to a campfire while looking like Hanibal, I'll never know.

I've always thought that sexual maturity should follow mental maturity, not the other way around. Apparently nature believes sexual maturity is more important.

Hypocrisy is part of human nature. Everyone does it to varying degrees.

So, the stupid american sheriffs are not a TV steriotype... They really exist.
Do you live in south of USA ?

Back to the rage against LCDs... I found a cell phone of a relative, according technical specifications on web for this model, have AMOLED screen (cousin of OLED). But the little piece of garbage turns greener and darker even with 35 degrees, and it also have motiong blur when we roll the page up or down.

Isn't AMOLED suposed to be as good or better then OLED?

Why everything in this crap industry it's against me or designed to piece me off???

There are good and bad people anywhere, and even good people have bad days. I'm on the West coast though, livin' on the 45th parallel.

Lol, reading this made me imagine scrolling on a CRT cell phone. Some huge thing shaped like a shoebox with a massive battery.

I mostly don't care what the screen of my phone looks like as long as I can read it. I've never watched a show on a cell phone, although I do think phones are the natural choice for VR, which do require a good image.

Stanford experiment... Heard about ?
The more agressive people, society, comunity, have the worse criminals...
It's like one generates another.

Some USA police officer, despite shout like dogs, are like sisy boys, pointing 1000 guns together and shooting 5000 times for nothing, like they were the most afraid people on Earth.

You should had recorded and sued hin.
I saw a news about a USA woman who sued a doctor who said very unkind things due a colon exame/procedure. She got 500.000 dolars.




Wasn't AMOLED suposed to be even better than OLED ?
Why it behave like a garbage LCD ? That sh...t got even greener in just few angles.

If I had resource I would start a moviment on web, a worldwide movement against LCD technology.

Talking about Formula One technology...

I'm tired to see some F-1 pages talking about how they evolute in terms of drivers safety, by comparing racing suits of 60's to today's nomex.

To start, nomex it's still a sh...t for gloves, and Simona de Silvestro and Tony Kanaan (indy but using same clothes as F1 today) got burns on hands (specially Silvestro) even the fire being put out quickly.

Nomex is used in Indy races since 60's, despite wasn't in so many layers or good fitting as today. Formula one used it (not mandatory) since early 70's (Jack Stewart used multi layers since 1973 or earlier), but nomex got mandatory only after Lauda's firery crash in 1976.
The pages also said that before Lauda crash they just used cotton, forgetting about Stewart's clothes, and also forgeting that was cotton treated with proban (a chemical fire retardant).

40 years later and the nomex gloves are still a crap.





Also, onboard fire extinguisher existed on F-1 since early 70's, and I didn't saw any onboard firte extinguisher activated in SImona SIlvestro's fire or Kanaan fire.

IIRC all of my older phones had LCD, but I don't remember right now what kind of display is fitted to my current one.

In 80's I supose you had this :

Another point I musrt introduce in this threat. Touchscreen fails... It fails a lot with me, or maybe the technology don't like my fingers, cause the digital touch scapes even if my finger keep in touch with the screen.

And people like tortures... since they type in virtual keybords which letter are smaller than the fingertip.
