should we ban typewriters!?!?
Oh god, if this had only been done we could've been spared the twilight series!
An example, you are cheating on your wife. You butt dial her while talking about cheating on her with a friend. She listens in and gets upset with you. You can't sue your wife for recording the conversation and using it in divorce court.
The problem you seem to have is with generalizations. Unfortunately, the human brain is incapable of not generalizing. Its the way we make sense of the world. So by your definition of sexism and racism (that the mere though that someone is different based on skin color or sex is racist or sexist), you are both racist and sexist and don't even know it. For you, me pointing out that a black man is different than a white man because of genetic mutation that increases melatonin in the skin, would be racist. To me, its just an interesting bit of science.
If you can't make a quantifiable argument for the basis of your opinion, it is irrelevant to the discussion at hand and, frankly, deters people from having a real discussion.
Why should the car leave the relatively safe road and go off-road to prevent a collision that isn't its own fault, anyways
To reduce injury of the person in the autonomous car. A very simple solution here is to release the break and idle forward at sub-second intervals before a rear end crash. The crash will push the car forward anyways and this minor change in speed would reduce the whiplash caused to the people in the previously stationary car. We can start with low hanging fruit like this and move into better avoidance as the technology improves, like moving into a red light to avoid a crash in instances where there is no oncoming traffic.
I'd like to think that at some point these things would be able to prevent fatal crashes that would've been the other drivers fault.
And not that I really care much about partisan politics, but the facilities are military with year over year increasing budgets. Military spending is typically associated with the republican party.
Just because someone is in a hospital or someone has Ebola, doesn't make them mentally ill, thus this law wouldn't apply anyway. Additionally, there are already laws in place regarding quarantine procedures in the case someone walks into a hospital with Ebola symptoms.
