Actually, the Just World Hypothesis (link ironically to Wikipedia) can help to explain the cognitive process behind the behavior that you observe with regards to "victim blaming". I found it fascinating when I first read about it (probably here on /.)

So it's more efficient to park a truck at the entrance to a neighborhood, load a package onto a drone, fly that drone to the home, drop the package, fly back, load another package, then fly to the next house, etc etc repeat ad nauseum than it is to just drive the truck to each home and have a human carry a package up the front steps? I don't think so. If anything, the improvement would be self-driving trucks so that the driver could focus on package delivery, loading/unloading, etc.

:sigh: you know - somehow I am 99.999999999% certain that you are "one of the losers". In fact, I would literally bet everything that I own that you're an absolute nobody.

Also - grow a pair, dude. Stop posting this shit as the ballless little AC worker-drone that you are. You want to make a statement - act like a MAN and identify yourself. Nobody that matters is trolling this kind of shit on the internet at 9 AM.

Well first, no one attributes the economic expansion of the 1980s with trickle-down economics. Literally nobody of any importance in the field of economics.

And, If you believe that trickle down policies were responsible for the 1980s economy, your position is equally the same to me as an anti-vaxxer or a climate change denier. You believe in fantasy.

Second, for a current example of those same "cut taxes results in boom" ridiculous ideas in action today, you need only look as far as the state of Kansas, who now have a two billion dollar deficit directly caused by lowering the income tax. Unsurprisingly, increased revenue did not result.

Nice non-sequitur. Well, I will tell you that only the religious right actively harms our society through anti-science rhetoric and culture, along with telling me or others how to live our private lives while also being actively engaged in limiting and restricting the rights of others. But I do thank you for your false equivalence, in spite of how distasteful I find such a childish response as yours.

You really needs to be coupling basic weight training with your cardio. I'm not saying you have to go nuts with it, but you really want to be doing light workout with weights before your rides. I used to think that because I only cycled I was fine. But once I incorporated some basic lifting, I was amazed at how much better I felt, how much more *functional* my body felt doing basic lift/reach/grab tasks, in addition to how much more productive my rides seemed to become. Also, it's going to stimulate your body to start burning that fat, which I suspect many of us nearly middle-aged IT guys need help with. And - seriously, just so you know: If you want to burn that fat, you have to add muscle. It is as simple as that.

It is masked but always present. I don't know who built to it. It came before the first kernel.
