Former Megadeth drummer, Nick Menza, has passed away on-stage at age 51 from a sudden heart attack.
Totally gutted by this news. He was part of my favorite band lineup and just such a talented drummer.

yeah i heard he was starting to veg and was basically holding on by a thread.

I'm kinda glad it's over for him. It was a pretty rough go for him for a lot of years. It really messed him up.

Actor Ron Lester has died of kidney and liver failure at age 45.

http://www.thewrap.com/ron-lester-star-of-varsity-blues-dies-at-45/

I liked him as Billy Bob in Varsity Blues, then even more as Reggie Ray in Not Another Teen Movie, where he parodied his own character. He also turned up in a few Freaks and Geeks episodes. Other than dropping a ton of weight several years ago, I don't know what he's been up to.

This one sucks because he was so young.  Car manufacturers really need to get their ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- together.

Maybe something good can come out of it, like no more Star Trek reboot films.

He had in in neutral, not in park.  So this isn't the typical Jeep sliding out of park and squishing you scenario.  Also Anton's driveway was a steep slope.

Either he was late getting to rehearsals and forgot to open the gates and jumped out of his jeep, without engaging the parking brake fully, or the hand brake failed completely.

We end up doing dumb things when we are late and rushing, and I think this is what happened.  Sad, unfortunate and a lesson for us all.

I know I won't be enjoying the next Star Trek film.

There is a recall out on those Jeeps because you cannot easily tell if you have it in park or not.  So it may not have been his fault. 

In any case, it sucks.  I enjoyed his performances as Chekov

"The affected vehicles, which also include 2012-14 Dodge Chargers and Chrysler 300s, use an unconventional lever to shift the automatic transmission. Instead of moving to a different position with each gear, the lever returns to a center position. The driver must look at the shifter to make sure the proper gear is selected."

That's probably just about the dumbest design ever.

I have a 2015 Chrysler 200 sport with the as mentioned "unconventional lever" shifter. As far as i could have seen... this really shouldn't have been an issue with how the electonic ebrake/parking brake system is set up now. (his vehicle must have the regular kind of manually actuated parking brake system... or a system that needs software update to alter it's behaviour.)

the activation system I have consists of a toggle switch that you can pull up to activate, or push down into the panel to deactivate. (similar to newer power window switches)

with my car, if the door is opened and the shift lever is in anything but park, (reverse, neutral, drive, or sport mode) the emergency park brake AUTOMATICALLY activates as soon as the door is opened. i've never tried this at speed, but if you're rolling and you open the door it does stop you.

if the door is opened first and the lever is actuated from park, the parking brake will AUTOMATICALLY activate.

it can be manually overridden again after it activates. (for instance if you are trying to look out under the door to line up with some car ramps) simply push the button down.

other features of said parking brake include... if it's activated manually while in drive mode, it will lock the brakes down, but will automatically deactivate when you press on the gas. (i assume for steep hill starts)

For burnout mode, (I believe only available on the sport model) you have to pull and hold up the switch for the brake. Start your burnout and release the switch lever (only need to hold the first few seconds) then the rear brakes will stay on until you depress the switch at which time the brakes release.


as for the gear selection system, Mine is a interlocked detent rotary switch. not an up down type selection. you must have the brake applied to rotate the switch from park. each gear selection has it's own detent.

once into the "moving" gears they can be freely switched between the gears, reverse.. neutral.. drive without pressing the brake. vehicle movement is monitored and if the speed is too high to shift (for instance drive to reverse while still moving) the selector WILL move there, but the transmission will not shift to the selected gear to prevent damage. if this interlock has activated you must stop, shift to park and then back to gear again.

as it sits...it's a good system. it truly is, really, idiot proof.

I believe quite honestly his death could have been prevented with a simple system update. Period.

P.S.

If you don't know, you can simply call the dealership service department anytime and give them your VIN... they will tell you over the phone if you have outstanding recalls that need to be done. recalls regardless of age are done free of charge. I just got a recall done for a 2008 nissan with like 250,000 on it for a suspension spring issue. replaced both front springs and didn't cost me a penny.

so do it. do it. do it now. don't get your ass run over. call and find out if you have a recall. get it fixed before it kills you.

That sounds like a lot of needless complication to compensate for an inherent design flaw.

I wouldn't say it's a design flaw per se...they just underestimated how retarded people can be and still manage to get a driver's license.

When the design of a shifter isn't "you move to position x and it shifts to gear x" then it's a design flaw.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

When the design of a shifter isn't "you move to position x and it shifts to gear x" then it's a design flaw.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it. 

but it does. unless you are trying to do something you shouldn't, then no, it doesn't. (for obvious reasons.) the aforementioned toggle shifter that  was used on some of the 2012 to 2014 300's is an exception. it was only used with one particular transmission/engine combo (not on all models)  since 2015 model year they have been changed to the rotary style knob. I haven't used that specific shift system before, but i'm pretty sure if you are stopped and want to put it in park, you could just hold the leaver up for a few seconds and it would default to park. while yes it's not a kerchunk okay we are here in this gear and have a positive stop system to ensure we are in park or drive or whatever kind of system, the onus is still on the operator to ensure their car is secure before leaving it. Much the same way I wouldn't place a running lawnmower on a hill and walk away.

Idiot proof something, and the world builds a better idiot. By all this idiot proof logic I suppose a column shifter that doesn't have a big spring attached to the dashboard to pull the leaver back to park if you take your hand off it... has a design flaw because it can be left in gear. I suppose a door that doesn't have a pulley system attached to it to pull the door closed when you sit in the seat has a design flaw, since you could leave the door open and fall out. I mean how far do you go to make something safe enough where the most lazy and inept person on the planet couldn't possibly kill themselves with this. Do you want to get out of your car and go... or do you want to do a 47 step vehicle movement interlock procedure so that the car knows damn well you are good and ready to get out?

The point i'm trying to get at is, Anton put his car in X when it should have been in Y... or thought he put it in X when he actually didn't. This isn't the vehicles fault. it doesn't matter what car on the planet you drive manual, automatic, leaver, shifter, or knob. car, truck, motorcycle or bulldozer.. if you leave it in drive, neutral, or reverse and you get out... it's probably going to run you over.  :dunno

I don't feel this is the fault of the vehicle manufacturer. Yes, An underestimation of how lazy, retarded, and inept people can be, showed a situation could occur where this could happen... but it was identified and a fix was put in place to prevent exactly this scenario.

Now, if Anton had taken his vehicle in to have the fix applied...he'd still be alive, regardless of accidentally leaving the vehicle in gear/being lazy/being stupid.

 :dunno

cause it's being made out that it was because an unsafe vehicle did this. vehicles are inherently unsafe machines, no different from a power saw. Let your guard down for one second and your done. Becoming complacent when operating a dangerous ANYTHING can kill you.

Anton was either an idiot who didn't place his vehicle in park before getting out, or he accidentally placed it into gear when he intended not to. i'd like to think the latter, but Americans (sorry) tend to fall into the former category.

either of these scenarios wouldn't have mattered had he done the recall. His death was 100% preventable by either paying due attention and making sure his vehicle was in park before getting out, or if he had done the recall fix on his vehicle, been negligent and STILL manage to come out alive.

his death is 100% senseless and i'm sure 100% brutally painful the whole time he was trapped. It pisses me off that it had to happen because it was with absolute certainty... preventable.

I certainly was preventable.... if the car had been designed properly there would have been no confusion... if it was built well there would have been no recall to worry about.

Sorry man but you are on the wrong side of this argument.   Because automobiles are very dangerous machines they have to be designed so even stupid people, who unfortunately still have to drive here in the USA, can work the controls. 

My mom bought a brand new Taurus in 2013... there have been FIVE recalls on the stupid thing.  She also couldn't get some of them fixed for some time because Ford was either backed up doing all the recalls, or they couldn't get the part(s) in because, again there are so many recalls. 

Considering how extremely hectic an actor's schedule can be I can absolutely see him forgetting or not bothering with the recall.  My mom have to wait SIX MONTHS to get one of them fixed and she was extremely diligent about staying on top of it.
