I assume it's from an advert for Better Abs.

They seem to have packaged two physical drives in one physical unit. Maybe the on-board controller can also treat them both as one physical drive but isn't it more flexible and perhaps cheaper to concentrate on making a single physical hard drive robust and cheap and then use RAID and similar techniques to get performance increases?
If you want to go this route, why not package an extra entire independent set of read/write heads at the opposite corner, then you could really have two channel access to the same physical drive?
Is there any kind of historical 'misrouting analysis' which gives a list of these types of events and the locations that data was misrouted through? It would be interesting to see the misrouting events organised by country of 'wrongful route'. e.g. How many misroutings went through the USA or UK?
I worked my way through the poorly expressed, spelled and 'grammared' posts to find this gem:
"I think there is a difference between compensating artists for their work, which is obviously a good thing, and allowing them to keep our culture hostage. At a certain point art becomes bigger than the artist."
The Linux Mint version update process is very smooth and fast. From 17.3 to 18.1 and throughout the 18.n series. They are to be congratulated on making a very user friendly distribution.
As for Timeshift, I prefer to use GpartedLive to make a clone of my root and home partitions which I can archive (at the back of the drawer) and restore from if needed. (Personal data is stored on a separate partition.) It's a brutally simple method and it's worked for me for over four years now. All you need is a spare hard drive. A cheap usb-SATA adapter cable will let you plug an SSD drive into a laptop usb socket so that's all good too.
