It really depends on the disability. It's hard to tell from watching someone get loaded into the car how well or poorly they are able to operate a vehicle. Certainly for your lower body, a little goes a long way. Self driving cars will be great for many reasons but until then, disabled people need to get around too and while they aren't entitled to help getting into their cars, that's not really a reliable indicator for whether they are safe drivers. Plenty of handicapped people who need accomodations to get into their cars can still drive just as well as anyone else.

Hah! We all know that handicapped people can't drive. They've got no arms!

Well nothing about her driving abilities was in your post, you just said she couldn't get into a car.

Sorry, I thought the implication was there.

I missed it, sorry. Even if it was implied that she was a terrible driver, that doesn't at all lead to your conclusion that people who need assistance getting into their cars can't drive, anymore than someone talking about a woman getting into a car and then driving poorly would imply women can't drive. It's a pretty understandable conclusion to draw in this case, though, and I figured I would point out that though it may seem as if the ability to get into a vehicle is a good way to measure that individual's ability to drive the vehicle, but it isn't really and is a standard that would exclude many safe and good drivers.

Why do horror films have to be so violent and bloody? Am watching 2013's Evil Dead. Much blood, very violent.

I thought you were talking about IAmNotCreepy, and was like "there's a lot of blood and guts in him, but you probably won't see them if watching is the only thing you do to him."

Last week, I scheduled a job interview for 9:00 tomorrow morning, since I’m off from work Tuesdays.

Today as I was signing out, I was informed of a mandatory safety training session tomorrow morning... at 9:00. Why they can’t just have it at 7 or 6:45 like everything else is beyond me. We were told it shouldn’t take long (but nothing more specific than that), and we’ll get paid. So I’m thinking either it will be about ten minutes long and we’ll make almost nothing, or it’ll be all day and I won’t be able to do anything else.

next-day edit: The training was basically a twenty-minute slide show to remind us not to be idiots (don’t use machinery you’re not trained on, don’t swipe anyone else in with your ID badge, tell people about any spills or biohazards on the production floor); not to try to put out any fires yourself; and if there’s a shooter (there haven’t been any, ever), GTFO, hide, or fight back (only if you have to).

(Presumably, the only way to stop a bad guy with a transgender-friendly privacy law is a good guy with a transgender-friendly privacy law, and thus transgender-friendly privacy law rights need to be enshrined in the Constitution as well)
