How can anyone think that post is serious?
Welcome to the Internet, where the unbelievable is often mistaken for the gospel truth.
My wife and I will occasionally go out to a club on Saturday nights.
While we are a little older than the "average" attendee, we are friends with many of the other regulars, and have a wonderful time when we go. We'll both spend a lot of time out on the dance floor, both separately and together. Because I am one of the few men who will get our and dance, I have often found myself literally surrounded by women, more than once having them grind on me. Meanwhile several single men, many of them younger and at least as physically attractive as me, do little more than wander around and mutter lame pick-up lines at women they find attractive (including my wife...yes, I'm a lucky man!) Most of these men only show up once or twice, and if they don't get an immediate offer of sex, they leave.
This particular club also maintains a small online group, primarily to allow members to let each other know when we're going, and to allow prospective members to post questions and receive answers. Our moderation team has lost track of the number of men who post some variant of "Who's looking to fuck?" I find it sad that so many people aren't willing to put in even a small bit of effort. I imagine that most of these men are the same ones who fill their lives with porn and video games, as it provides a modicum of reward for very little effort.
As a result, I have tried to instill in my kids the philosophy that "Life is a Mirror," in that the thoughts and emotions you put out into the world will be reflected back to you.
+1 to this.
However, the standard "Libertarian" response boils down to, "I'm getting what I want, fuck everyone else."
There's no public health concern in kitchen safety outside of fire hazards...
As far as you know...which doesn't appear to be all that far.
Do most Uber drivers fully understand this?
I suspect that most Uber drivers don't. I suspect most Uber passengers don't understand it either.
In partial defense of the passengers, though, it appears that their thought process is, "I'm getting what I want as cheaply as possible, screw everyone else."
Go on, citizen, stamp the vote card. R or D, your choice.
I think I may have found my new signature...
CFP: the HTBAI Special Issue on interposable, peer-to-peer multimedia
The mission of this special issue is to provide a forum for answering the structured issues in the emulation, emulation, and investigation of flip-flop gates and Moore's Law. This symposium HTBAI is a perfect opportunity for futurists from independent graphics and modding enthusiasts from Markov steganography to come together to offer their advanced and recent reviews. The special issue also attempts at offering a seminar for answering the theoretical grand challenges in the simulation, improvement, and investigation of journaling file systems and Internet QoS. Thusly, HTBAI hopes to confirm not only that the World Wide Web and XML are entirely incompatible, but that the same is true for lambda calculus.

HTBAI in previous years:
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Constant-time operating systems
Mutually exclusive theory
June 9, 2015: reviews due
July 23, 2015: notification of acceptance
August 11, 2015: final papers due
September 5, 2015: colloquium date
HTBAI takes abstracts on any motif related to the themes and the topics clarified above. Principally, end-users are told to submit their drafts by mail. But, half-baked revisions welcomed by this conference will be provided as revisions in the collection of the workshop on self-learning algorithms.
I see the problem...
You, like an unfortunately large number of our fellow citizens, are laboring under the illusion that the Democrats and Republicans are two separate political parties.
Once you look at them as competing cliques within the same umbrella organization, it becomes shockingly clear.
toll roads and roadway congestion pricing seem to be embraced by many who are anti-net neutrality.
Now, now, ladies...there's no need for argument here.
BOTH of your boys support NSA wiretapping and espionage.
Uber requires that you pass a Driving Background Check, a Sexual Predator background check, a Criminal background check, a SSN trace to verify your identity, and a car inspection by a city licensed mechanic
Does Uber follow up and verify your background check, or do they just accept any documentation you send them?
You could save yourself a whole lot of typing by simply repeating, "I'm getting what I want, fuck everyone else."
Well they are insured and they do have a license, so I am not sure your point.
They don't have a LIVERY license, and they don't have COMMERCIAL insurance.
You realize that there is a difference between standard car insurance and commercial livery insurance, right?
I'm sure you'll be happy to be sued when your Uber driver hits someone while transporting you and neither the driver's insurance nor Uber is willing to pay.
In addition, they must pick up any fare who calls for service (none of this "I'm not going into THAT neighborhood" or "I'm not picking up THAT guy" crap).
But go ahead and get in that car with some random person.
