...same old political problems humans have always had.
People have to own the machines; it's the only way I can see for humans to remain viable. We need to be buying our kids stock, not college education.
Alternatively you could have really good intel and just capture and jail anyone who trys to make the next great killing machine. I *don't* buy into the mutually assured destruction idea, because it's incredibly unstable. All it takes is one crazy person one time to destroy the whole world. Especially if we keep letting weapons get more and more destructive.
It not stupid, it's just a brute fact. You develop it, there's an approximately a 100% chance in the long run someone will steal the idea and use it against you. So do as you please I guess.
In my opinion, it's foolish to develop any weapon technology you don't want used against you. Historically weapon technology has never been successfully contained. If you can't keep nukes out of North Korea you can't keep any weapon out of anywhere.
Watch Thunderfoot's commentary on her before you judge. He points out that the game where she demos the "necrophilia", a) it was HER playing it and b) players lose points for killing innocents.
Law enforcement people I have heard speak on the subject say that the cameras will easily pay for themselves in reduced legal expenses.
Don't assume that it won't pass. Usually they don't but the one here in Tennessee did.
Soon on the cosmic scale perhaps. I will probably be several hundred years at best.
As far as I can see it is NOT fixed. It's just that it hasn't finished flagging all the different versions that were posted to different channels.
If there were actually a God, Theology would be science.
Well that's all fine and good, but not everyone feels as you do. I am NOT willing to accept even a tiny probability of being one of the sacrificial lambs, and more importantly I'm not willing to accept that tiny probably for my children either. Monetary compensation is not a perfect solution, but what you typically see when someone is released after a long stretch of unjust imprisonment is that they are not bitter at all. But the bitterness of the family who has a family member unjustly executed is eternal. The two situations are not comparable at all.
I think hard drives should be considered as an extension of your brain, and thus as protected as the content of your brain.
$9.7 million per meter. And I thought stretch SUV's were expensive.
Meanwhile, cars put something like 5,000 metric tons of carbon per year into the air.
