something about the way the videos are presented. If I catch a random person posting a video, recent from memory of a cat trying to catch fish through the ice of a frozen pond, people would think that is funny. If it was on the 5 o'clock news, they'd think, "People are getting shot and there is rioting and this is what they put on?"

I don't know why but it seems if it's coming from professionals it should be bad news.

Hmm, why not? If you're using docker in a production environment I'd hope you're building your own images, so where is the security concern? If you're just testing out software and testing builds then sure pull away from the docker hub, but if you're deploying to production you better have your own artifact repository storing your personal generated images.

That is wonderful if everyone is a perfect driver such as yourself. Some people are not great drivers, some are distracted even for a second, that 4-5 is easily dropped to 1-2 just by checking your rear view mirror and dash gauges before looking up again.

If the world were full of perfect drivers, with endless patients and no emotion, then your theory would hold mostly true. Until then we have to adjust for the world we live in.

In the end, life has to have a balance. There's not much point in fully automated everything if nobody has a job and is able to purchase the fruits of that automation. So either the products of industry will become so cheap as to be effectively free and the poor just have to go pick up the things they want, or there will have to be value that people can generate in exchange for the items they desire.

The scale may be different but one man with a backhoe still displaces 100 men with shovels. Now it may be one man with a factory of robots displaces 1000 assembly line workers. Or one man watching a console of automated farm machines displaces 100 tractor drivers. In the past it was one man with a cotton gin could replace 100 slaves. or one caveman with a wheel and cart could carry back three knocked out mates to his cave.

(*) except for the last example, man is used in the non gender specific man-kind form.

You know you've been spending too much time on the computer when your friend misdates a check, and you suggest adding a "++" to fix it.
