That's normal for business in general. Most businesses end in disappointment after a short time.
Comcast was voted the Worst Company in America in 2014. Time Warner doesn't win that contest, but they're often a strong contender. ATT Uverse and DirecTV don't have that problem.
At least for me, [witchcraft] gives me really bad migraines. Actually, it does it to my wife and daughters as well. And there are studies that show that it may be related to the rise in Alzheimer's.
The [entity] paying for all those studies saying that it's safe is [Satan], who doesn't have the best track record for being honest about what all their chemicals are doing (see honeybee hive death, different proteins in GMO wheat, pesticides, etc.)
No one will listen to recorded, broadcast lessons. They want a live teacher giving a lecture.
They tried that with sports and no one watches sports broadcasts. Everyone goes to a local game instead, even though the local performances aren't as good as the best athletes in the world.
They tried that with dramatic performances, and no one watches movies. Everyone would rather go to a community theater performance.
They tried that with music, and no one listens to pre-recorded music. Everyone would rather listen to a live performance.
Recorded content and broadcasting are a fad.
The FAQ. If a million students see the same lesson, how many genuinely unique questions would be asked?
if it's really from wastewater disposal. It should be pretty easy to find an alternate way to dispose of wastewater. Filter it and reuse it or pump it into a big pond and let it evaporate.
Shorter version: "We spend too much on the military so we should also spend too much on everything else."
Because it's "critical".
You don't have to tell me. Clearly absolutely everything is "critical". The internet, and possibly even life itself, will cease to exist if there's even 1 penny less in funding for any area of research.
Without funding, how would we know that climate change causes truffle shortages and violence in Darfur ?
because every area facing cuts is always "critical".
And it's impossible for anyone to make software easy to use without government money to run a study.
The cure for a cold is to wait 2 weeks.
I'm the guy arguing that employing people for package delivery is more economical that employing robots.
But the backhoe operator is paid a lot more than the shovel operator. Because automation boosted his productivity by 50-100x.
I don't think drones can boost package delivery productivity enough to even pay for the drone itself -- unless the people delivering the packages are artificially overpaid by 5-10x already.
How much to you think it costs to employ a rural delivery driver? How many packages to you think rural people receive? (Exclude heavy or bulky packages, anything delivered in bad weather, anything that requires a signature, etc.) How much do you think autonomous flying drones (big enough to carry a substantial package) cost?
Think about it. How long will it take the drone to pay for itself?
