And in California, which we have already turned from a desert into a Mediterranean climate, they are saying that "to save water", we should remove all the grass and return to desert landscaping. Stupid idiots worry endlessly about global warming and then propose measures to cause it on a statewide scale.

My car self-parks in that it steers correctly to fit into a space between two other cars. I am responsible for all acceleration and braking during this exercise. So, it's a self-parking car, but not a completely self-parking car.

Volvo may have 2 tiers. The original assisted parking which just steers and a new full self-parking where it does it all.

I shutdown my gaming PC all the time, sometimes for weeks or even months at a time (if I get into a console game instead). I've never lost data on it except when the painter left the heater on and then proceeded to open all the doors and windows downstairs while simultaneously closing my office door. When I got home, it was like an oven in there, and the SSD lost all data, but when I reformatted and reinstalled it it continues to work to this day.
