>> CEOs want employees with liberal arts degrees, because those graduates have critical thinking skills.

Liberal arts = critical thinking? lol thats funny....And people with CS, maths or hard science degrees are not naturally inclined to think as logically right?

What they ACTUALLY mean is they want more fuzzy-thinking compliant Yes-men, not engineers that actually know their shit and easily spot it when some middle-manager says something that makes no logical sense.

Of course I know what a macBook is. Thanks to it being waaay overpriced and having relatively dismal hardware specs, and also being locked into a proprietary Apple universe, I practically don't even consider it a laptop at all, let alone anything I would actually want to give money for.

I wonder how much money Microsoft will continue to throw at phones, and how many times they will keeping releasing new phones that don't sell before they finally accept that no-one actually likes Widows or trusts Microsoft any more, and that the only reason we use Windows at all is because you can't buy a laptop without it and most of us just have to put up with it at work.

what decision will the car make?
will i be happy to allow it to make that decision?
- will i still be happy for it to make that decision if my 2 kids are in the backseat?

All very good questions that no decision-makers are allowing themselves to be seen asking.

To the government none of this will matter, its already a done deal that In a few years this technology will become 24/7 mandatory. Google are already trying hard to get driving controls out of cars totally.

Regardless of the fact that nearly all of society does it every day, we will be told by the government that driving is an activity that humans are completely incapable of doing safely (somehow these human shortcomings won't be an issue if you work for the government or have a cop badge), and all the treehuggers will totally agree with all the brainwashing because think of the children.

It wont be long before anybody demonstrating independent thought by trying to take control of the vehicle in any way will be considered as unnecessarily endangering lives and therefore a criminal. Mark my words. The loss of your family due to a bad decision by the car in an accident will be considered as "just unlucky" by most people and you won't be able to do a damn thing about it. Welcome to the Google age.

>> I'd imagine that most of them really didn't want that stuff leaked ...Because most normal people tend to put naked pictures of themselves in a cloud somewhere?

>> or they'd just leak them, themselves, in a coordinated manner.

That was exactly my point, that this is actually coordinated.

>> but yeah. Keep on keeping on. It is all fun and games until it is your own daughter or son caught up in that shit.

Acutally my girlfrineds daughter is a Heroin addict so I think I have some perspective here. I know exactly whats going on and I already see the benefits of it being illegal.

>> "But, but if they did not DO the drugs in the first place, it would not be a problem."


>> Carry on with your naivete kind sir. Carry on.

You're just like every other drug user. You all staunchly defend your use of drugs with very colorful and great-sounding arguments that are nonetheless bassd entirely on bollocks.

The bottom line is that drug abuse causes a LOT of problems to individuals and society, far more than any actual benefit. Thats why its illegal.

Why don't we both just carry on the way we are. You keep buying illegal substances from random sources and then putting it straight into your body and I won't. Then lets see which of us lives longer/healthier/better lives.
