So pretty soon road safety engineers will be advocating for opaque windshields, probably made of steel.
They started morphing into programmer mills churning out dBase III, COBOL, coders and now they teach everything from Java to Ansys Fluid Mechanics R17.1 (Register for two courses and AutoCAD is free!)
I don't think I got it through DNA. Mainly circumstances and habit. If at all there was influence from DNA it is quite mild.
Most school buses, mail trucks, parcel delivery trucks, can go electric. Most of them stay close to their base station and can be charged over night. Further they are suitable for "swap-the-battery and continue" mode of operations. Deliver fleets could build battery swap stations for their trucks to swap batteries when needed.
Currently these options are not being pursued because the price is too high for the cost savings. As gas prices fall they become even more unviable. But these are the first ones that will be peeled off when the battery price break through comes along.
For fixed wing aircraft they can't take off hoping airflow will shake the ice off. Most likely they might still use high pressure water hose to shake the ice loose once it has been debonded from the wings. But plain water would freeze again. So it is back to glycol? May be heating the layer of ice right next to the wing will reduce the amount of antifreeze needed to de ice the wings.
By their own logic I should have just as easy of a time to be able to set up my own cell towers and siphon in all the location data that comes into it, and the government can't say boo about it
Surely you jest. Even if you were serious, you probably don't have the resources to pull it off nor you may have any ideas of how to make money off this. But all it takes is someone to plant this idea in the head of some pointy haired boss in Goldman Sachs or JPMC. There are sitting on two trillion dollars of excess capital and don't know what to do with it. They might decide to do it. Atleast with the government you might get a chance to vote against it or legislate against it. But once Goldman does it, that is the end. There is nothing anyone, including Goldman can do about it.
So stop giving them ideas.
