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:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
