Re: Self driving cars
if we ever get to the point that I can sit in the back seat and take a nap while the vehicle safely takes me to my destination then it will be fully self driving. Until then it's all a lie

Before your are allowed to vote you should be required to pass a test to prove you are competent enough to vote. imagine how different politics would be if politicians didn't have to pander to the average idiot to get elected, I expect most wouldn't even run for office as they would have no chance of winning
I think china's goals for Taiwan went up in smoke with the invasion of Ukraine. They now see the real possibility of significant sanctions should they try anything. Sure the rest of the world would have to make due with not upgrading their phone every year but once the manufacturing moves out of China it's gone for good. And then the communist party will collapse as massive unemployment and starvation hit.
It's certainly possible to only have to provide proof of identity once when you create an account with the information never being saved and the account not retaining any personally identifying information.
There is no need to ever check age again, none of us getting younger.
The 2nd ammendment wasn't too big of a problem until it started being misinterpreted several decades ago. But now it needs to go as it's a major impediment to any sensible gun laws. While you're at it you might as well pass amendments clarifying that corporations are not people and that money is not free speech.
Those 3 are the root of so many of the problems in the USA.
Governments aren't likely to encourage less baby making as they and economists haven't figured out how to run an economy that isn't growing. There are quite a few countries already facing demographic Armageddon, and it will spread to most countries as they become more developed. Many western countries are only able to grow through immigration, but that will only delay the inevitable. We're a only few decades away from reaching peak population before we go into a global population decline
in the past when co2 rates climbed they climbed over millenia. now we have 100,000 years of change compressed into a century due to human generated co2, so past events are likely not good predictors of the future.
But even if temperatures eventually return to normal the problem is the the rate of climate change is far too fast for natural systems to adapt. many species and ecosystems will be wiped out
the difference now is that there has been a huge brain drain in Russia which only accelerated with putin's latest idiocy. Russia was already doomed to decline due to demographics and he has made it much worse. The people they need the most, the young and well educated, are leaving in huge numbers.
Tesla have always been a joke. poorly designed, poorly built and more interested in adding gimmicks than in making a good car. it took other car manufacturers many decades before they could consistently make high quality cars. Making your car electric is actually the easy part, making it with high quality is the hard part.
I've been saying this since his first twitter poll about selling telsa shares. He wants to take profit before the Tesla bubble bursts.
No sane person would think that a company about the size of Subaru is worth more than the 10 biggest auto makes combined.
I originally signed up because I needed to write a twitter client. I only follow a handful of companies but I have quite a few attractive young "women" who follow me. Who knows, some of them might even exist, some might actually be female, but all of them are scams of some sort.
No, this is all part of the scam. He has apparently already sold billions in shares for the purchase of twitter. The purchase was just an excuse to minimize the impact on Tesla stock when he sold it.
If he just sold it, or even worse told the truth that he's selling while the shares are grossly overpriced by 100x (or is it 80x now, I don't follow Telsa stock) then the stock would have really tanked
of course not every investment works out. But I've seen too many stupid ideas and obvious scams such as Theranos get funding while worthwhile projects get ignored. I've met with enough VCs to know that most aren't qualified to judge whether technical claims are feasible, yet they are the ones handing out the cash.
Tesla stock likely will tank at some point. They sell poorly designed, poorly built cars with shifty software. it's highly unlikely that it will ever grow to outsell the 10 biggest car manufacturers combined, and that's what would need to happen to justify the current valuation. We already see plenty of other electric cars that are better than Telsas in every way, and they will only get better.
And also a con man. this whole thing seems to be another way ro sell more Tesla shares while it is still over valued by about 100x without causing it to tank too much.
First he held a Twitter poll to sell shares to distract from the real reason he wanted to sell. Now he sells shares to buy twitter, But then digs up more investors after the fact so that he can hang on to his money and let others waste theirs.
