Yep: You can be certain the NSA already has a copy of one of these.

Per the article:
"Self-driving cars promise a future where you can watch television, sip cocktails, or snooze all the way home"
I mean....geez, aside from the sleeping part, that's not that uncommon now for REGULAR cars. The console screens are pretty easily bypassed to allow watching video anytime, and well...it isn't that big a deal to pour a cocktail for the road, hell, that's why folks try to catch as many of the plastic Mardi Gras cups here during carnival season, so that you have a sturdy disposable "to-go" cup to make a beverage for the road with when leaving the house......
'We devils should', not 'us devils should'. The way you know is you say 'we should' and not 'us should'.
Perhaps his language background is in Eubonics, and it just got lost in translation?
I mean, it is (or at least should be) common sense that people tend to relate to and help/associate with other beings that are more like them.
This is just basically innate behavior of humans. Why is anyone shocked at this? If you don't actually KNOW a either of two strangers you might be presented with, you're first reaction is likely to feel more at ease and more trusting of the person that visually resembles you the most.
When did political correctness overrule common sense and things we've known about human behavior since pretty much the dawn of time?
Never heard that term before....?
This is yet another reason not to be on FaceBook.
Don't post a ton of shit about your life online, and there will therefore be less material available for YOUR future loser edit.
That's her campaign slogan.
The problem with "Hide the scissors" is that the scissors are still there. Right under the seat, pointy-end up! The user, even (or especially) the non-tech one is much better off seeing the damn things.
I know, right? Like how the Sons of Liberty didn't disguise themselves as Indians before dumping a load of tea into Boston Harbor, and then when done, turned themselves in to the nearest British garrison? We need more heroes like those fine, upstanding, nametag-wearing gentlemen.
if you break the law to make your point that the law is unjust you should stand ready to be arrested, imprisoned and tried in court for what you choose to do.
"Ready to be" doesn't mean adopting a Gump level of naivete and making it easy for the government to remove you from the public view. By him fleeing the country (and seeking asylum in a country we traditionally mock for their lack of an open and fair government, no less), we continue to discuss Snowden's actions years later. If he had stuck around, we would all have forgotten about him as soon as the next weekly scandal distracted the media.
In Bennett's case, I have to admit he has become a truly master-level troll, in that he has learned to write an opening paragraph that gets my attention but doesn't give away his essential Bennett-ness. By the third paragraph, though, I usually catch on, stop reading there, and just write the obligatory "fuck Bennett" post.
If I get tired of a business like Google, I quit using it.
Kinda hard to quit a government that can take your freedom and life away from you if you get pissed at them....at least hard in the short run.
