Er, are you talking about the US (ed snowden, nsa, guantanamo bay, man in prison whole life for shop-lifting as a teen) or China?
The sooner autonomous cars take over the better, people crashing cars is causing the weight of cars to be fixed at very high levels.
If cars were all autonomous they could weigh 650Kg and safety would not be a concern because crashes would be so much fewer. Heavy vehicles could be restricted to motorways and speed restricted to 20mph when in cities.
the car weighs 636kg
In theory, it doesn't look like they have an actual working car and the '0-100 km/hr in 2.2 sec' is pure hypothesis, if they really had a car that could go this fast, the least I'd expect is a video showing such on their youtube channel.
Never fear, Taylor Swift is here! After complaining on behalf of musicians around the world in an open letter to Apple, Ms Swift managed to convince Apple to change its mind and dip its hand into its pocket. But did this mean that a great deal was offered? Clearly being paid 'something' is better than not being paid at all, but the New York Times reveals that Apple will be paying out just 0.2 cents every time a track is streamed.
If that sounds very little, well, it is. But sadly it's not unusual. Spotify uses quite a complicated formula to determine how much artists are paid. The company explains that this averages out to a "payout to rights holders of between $0.006 and $0.0084". This still isn't very much, but it is between three and four times what Apple is due to pay.

And you can't work out a solution to that?
Good, hopefully people will have less children overall. They should come up with lots of reasons for people not to have children.
A better example would be shower facilities. If you offered homeless people a shower, only had room for one communal facility so decided to limit it to just women, would that be sexist?
Of course it would be sexist, why are you even asking? The solution is simple and obvious - put a lock on the inside of the facility like most normal bathrooms.
As a nation, we work harder and longer than almost all of our competitors, and much of that work is uncompensated
Oh, it's compensated all right, it's just not the poor bastard doing the overtime that's getting the dough, it's the directors and the shareholders.
If you work for free, that's called slavery and you're a mug. And American holidays are a joke. And the American health care system is a joke and the internet competition is a joke. Brainwashed.
We have all the renewable energy we will ever need available but we don't currently have any way to store it in a grid scale type of way -
What a truly absurd statement.
Pumped hydro, battery technologies, flywheels, compressed air systems, molten salts etc
Mozilla couldn't run a piss-up in a brewery these days, I went to the plugin check page and it is broken, no plugin check, no link to adobe.
Except for some youtube embeds - they still require flash to use. I have to enable flash for pages pretty regularly.
You don't even have to host the email, I got a domain for a small company and let 1&1 look after the email for peanuts - without all of the maintenance drag. If 1&1 go down then there are multiple options for continuing the email.
Can doctors prescribe placebos, there's go to be legal and moral issues there. Isn't it more ethically wrong to prescribe something you don't believe in than to prescribe something you do believe in.
But would they? To protest poisoning rhino horns is pretty much to support the people killing rhinos. I don't think the 'bleeding hearts' would protest much.
I'd put it something that both makes people puke their guts up and makes them unable to get it up (if such a thing exists).
Immoral? No, it's punishment, no more immoral than prison.
