    • Day 164.  I knew I'd be inside a lot tonight, so I brought a rubber stretchy band to aid in some stretches.  Did at least five minutes' worth of ones I'm told are golf focused. 
    • Dang it, two weeks in a row I missed the deadline.  I forgot Korea was in a very different time zone (almost wrote "timeline").  I also started Evan Engram in fantasy football last week, so maybe I'm just bad at this whole "set a reasonable lineup" thing.
    • This is vastly different from a turn signal. This is a device that will do several things: Increase the price of all cars manufactured with it Introduce an extra critical failure point that will literally brick your car if it breaks, with guaranteed costly repairs (car electronics are never cheap) Introduce the possibility that your car won't work because it thinks you're drunk when you aren't - dangerous in a number of different circumstances Possibly prevent you from wearing gloves while driving if it requires contact with skin Possibly cut ignition to your vehicle and cause accidents if it malfunctions while driving - dangerous in a number of different circumstances All of those are much larger issues than having to lift your finger an inch or two off the steering wheel to press the turn signal stalk. It still wouldn't even necessarily save lives either, because drunk drivers can still drive any car that doesn't have a device installed - of which tens of millions exist in the United States alone. It would impact less than 10% of vehicles on the road and impact less than 0.33% of deaths in the US each year, but it would add major concerns and hassles to the lives of every single person who wants to purchase a new vehicle.
    • On my local 9 I usually lose at least one to the creek gods, and maybe slice one over the fence on the par 4 third hole.
    • I read the article too.  This is the statement:  "Another possible solution are sensors to monitor a driver's eye movement and breath."  It said nothing about the car moving.  It was part of the paragraph that was speaking to solutions before you could even start the car. This is what Pretzel said about laws... "The majority of them don't do anything to inconvenience or endanger those that follow the law in any way throughout their daily lives."  I agree with that.  But I do hate using my turn signal when I'm on a country road and there's no vehicle within a half-mile of me. 😊  And for the record, I am fine with laws that inconvenience me if they are going to save lives, especially mine.
