[15:07:34] <AndyTheAbsurd> Disappointed because Lyft actually provides a valuable service in a better than way than taxis (the closest pre-internet-ride-hailing competition)...and I thought that if their financials are really *that* bad, they wouldn't be stupid enough to IPO.
[15:08:16] <AndyTheAbsurd> Of course, the fact they're considered a 2nd-rate version of Uber is really their bigger problem...but everyone who's looked into it acknowledges that Uber is losing money like crazy.
[15:17:46] <FatPhil> Their financials really were that bad.

[19:22:06] <Sulla> A year or so ago i went and looked over the whole list of every shooting since the late 1890s, at least what was on record
[19:22:56] <Sulla> There were like five with more than two or three people, the majority were kids playing with guns, an angry parent/kid shooting a teacher for bullying them/their sister/whatever, or a shooting at a school not involving students or staff.
[19:23:19] <Sulla> The big ones were the guy who blew up a school, then you had the clocktower
[19:23:56] <Sulla> but nothing really until after they passed the AWB and then you had Thurston using banned weapons in oregon, then Columbine using banned weapons, then almost yearly

[22:45:23] <FatPhil> that matches my general conclusions, and those of politically-aware friends, so there's a reasonable chance it's right.
[22:47:30] <Sulla> I just find it funny watching Britain lose to Gremany at peace what they managed to protect at war.
[22:49:52] <FatPhil> I'm not sure what the final score will be. I of course still have all my relatives there, and visit occasionally, so will find out in due course what's actually changed.
[22:51:42] <FatPhil> I think I'm lucky enough that almost none of my relatives or friends will be directly affected. Unless the NHS implodes under the pressure of 350M extra quid per week, of course. (most are oooold)
