Q: How about a new twist on self driving cars?

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/2018/11/07/brothels-could-move-self-driving-cars-academics-predict/

 

Brothel on wheels not my cup of tea, but later in the article some unintended consequences.

 

 

Why bother with an overnight flight, just let the car drive you there and sleep comfortably in a seat bigger than an airling would offer?

 

Why take a tour bus when your car does the driving and parking and you can get work done with a desk, laptop, etc in your car and not a cramped seat on a bus?

 

When you think about the potential, this could actually increase usage and congestion.

Can you see an old self driving car in 20 years being charged and driven around in a circle loop highway of a city, while some guy sleeps to avoid paying rent for an apartment or hotel room. We have wage workers now living in RV's and vans to avoid rent and mortgage payments taking showers at fitness centers. I call them nomad workers.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
