Apparently its ok to kill people if you’re old

Boy, I can’t wait until I’m 93 years old. Apparently in Florida, they not only let 93 year olds with dementia drive, but don’t charge them with a crime if they happen to say, kill someone while driving around, then drive around for another 3 miles with a the body of their victim in their windshield. I don’t know anything about dementia, but how can you forget a **corpse in your windshield**? Wouldn’t that tend to block the view a bit? See AP story on cnn.

States seem to have thoroughly cracked down on teen/inexperienced driving with various graduated licenses, isn’t it high time we started requiring frequent (every year or two) relicensing above a certain age?

Intellij IDEA sucks

I recently got a new job where most people use Intellij IDEA. This professional product claims to “intensely focused on developer productivity” – which is interesting because of the way when files change, or once just leaves the product idle for a little while, it launches a modal dialog to show you how long it is going to take to let you do your work again – sometimes if that’s long enough, it’ll show you the quick tips which you can scroll through – the more work it has to do, the more you’ll learn about the product presumably, and thus the more productive you’ll be when it’s NOT blocking you from getting one’s work done. How can a product be this unthoughtful about the workflow of its users. Eclipse handles this great.
This is all besides the fact that its written with an ugly swing interface which takes 2 or 3 beats to redraw when unminimizing the window.
