Don't be fooled by the shape and layout of the pins, check the rating.

The USB was probably a follow the leader thing.
I want to make a thing that works with PCs, and I want to connect with all PCs for a bigger market so how can I connect.

I want to build a PC that appeals to the largest market so what kind of attachment port should I add.

Rinse, repeat.

Come to think of it, I have never seen a male version of a 20 amp 125v grounded plug. I've installed a bunch of those receptacles in my house because I love running 20 amp circuits, but I feel like the plug is imaginary.

Ever start up went the light turns green and half way into the intersection somebody just misses you while blowing the red light?
The electric accelerates so fast they won't miss you now.

Seriously though, they accelerate like hot rods used to but now with novice teens, distracted people, befuddled retirees, and multitaskers at the wheel. Drivers will be able to fuck up much faster. And no, it won't help you escape because you rarely see it coming.

I've done that and not been missed, with a Civic hybrid, which is not known for rapid acceleration.

Continuing the thread drift, I had that happen in front of me to someone else. I saw her coming too fast and stayed put, but he didn't--and she smashed into him so hard, he spun out and hit me anyway. All three cars were totaled. It sucked balls.

Red light cameras at every intersection will pretty much put a stop to that. People will slow down on yellow instead of speeding up.

I played this at a Dylan's birthday show, and the MC flipped cards like these and tossed them into the audience. Dylan was like the original Kool Keith.

The cars will all have pedestrian warning systems, so they will beep at the driver just before they hit the person.

When he dies, and you go to the funeral -- if his coffin doesn't go directly in the hole, just tell them to flip it around until it does fit.

protip, you'll probably have to flip it two times.

I'm not so sure, with more and more distracted drivers they may not even see the light... or intersection.

As a matter of fact I just saw this today, the second part directly related.
