I have both read and seen World War Z, and see no problem with this.
Now those are reasonable answers.
And thanks for not pointing out the obvious typos. My "smart" phone isn't so smart sometime and corrects what I typed.
"If the accident was caused by lack of maintenance, then its the owners fault. Otherwise its the manufactures fault."
Are owner's responsible for every aspect of maintence now? If I have a flat on a bald tire and someone gets hit, am I responsible now? If I take it to a mechanic and they sigh off on it, are they responsible?
What if my driverless car runs over a nail? Who's fault is it then?
""Pirate" still means one who commits armed robbery on the high seas. It does not mean one who commits copyright infringement except in informal speech and propaganda."
You are flat out wrong. It means what people think it means. And if you called someone a software pirate in most of the English speaking world, they would think you are calling them "one who commits copyright infringement".
I don't even know what you mean by "propaganda".
"Well, none of those can fit inside your wallet"
Perhaps so, but if I put something like this in my wallet, it will be broken in a day or 2. See, I put my wallet in my back pocket. And any electronic device thin enough to put in my wallet, will likely snap they first time I sit down too fast. And.... I'm only 165 lbs. I can't even imagine something like this being able to survive in the wallet of a comic book guy/neckbeard's wallet.
According to the CDC (http://www.cdc.gov/tobacco/data_statistics/fact_sheets/health_effects/tobacco_related_mortality/) there are "More than 480,000 deaths annually " related to cigarettes and (http://www.cdc.gov/alcohol/fact-sheets/alcohol-use.htm) "approximately 88,000 deaths attributable to excessive alcohol use each year in the United States"
In 2011, the CDC says (http://www.cdc.gov/homeandrecreationalsafety/overdose/facts.html) "33,071 (80%) of the 41,340 drug overdose deaths in the United States were unintentional"
So ciggs+alcohol deaths ~ 570,000 deaths per year
Accidental drug overdose ~ 33,000 deaths per year
Now which should be legal and/or a greater concern to society at large? Which likey have a greater economic cost to society? Which has a greater overall impact?
I'm not saying hard drugs aren't bad, but perhaps we should concentrate on what is causing the most damage first.
"Some, like the sort you are thinking of, are simply idiots seeking pleasure"
Yes. They are the idiots. Why would anyone try to seek pleasure. They are obviously in the wrong.
"she stole hundreds of pounds of my wife's make-up "
Your wife must be a real looker if she flies around with hundreds of pounds of makeup.
My first job was in 1989, and I remember the federal minimum wage was $3.35/hour back then. I'm sure some people made more, but I doubt most students beat that by much.
"Personally, I'll never buy an automated car."
You will not have a choice one day. If the average driver gets in an accident every 100k miles, and the average automated car gets in an accident every 1M miles, then the insurance companies will charge you to the point that you can't afford to drive yourself. They already do that now for minors and people with DUIs on their record.
Plus, it will take longer to go places when the system is fully in effect. Automated cars will be able to travel closely at high speeds in convoys, likely have dedicated lanes, never need breaks, etc.
If they want to sell some comics, they should make Wonder Woman a man. And Batgirl a guy as well. Maybe, then it would sell better.
Well, they are doing a sequel to Twins saying there were Tripleps. And of course, the 3rd guy is black.

In reality, you can't not get sued if you put yourself out there. Anyone can sue you for anything. It doesnt' mean they can win, but they can still get the ball rolling. And it doesn't cost that much to sue, so they don't have to have expensive lawyers. And even if you countersued for damages, that doesn't mean they will have the ability to pay.
A GS-15 in Atlanta's starting pay is $120034 and they top out at $156043. Now, that's the top level, but you can make decent money as a gevernment employee.
Your basic FBI/DEA/ICE/Secret Service agent is a GS13. Their range is $86,355-112,261. I'm sure some people on here make more than that, but I bet a the majority don't. If you go here (http://www.whatsmypercent.com/), it states someone making $100k is in the 96%. That is the entire US workforce, but should paint a relevent picture.
""A 'threat,' according to the bill, is anything that makes information unavailable or less available."
With this definition, the whole internet is a 'threat'. If you are downloading something from site x, you are using bandwidth that could be making site y "less available". Therefore, any site that requires the use of bandwidth to access could be consider a threat.
