If the cars that fall back to AI then communicate their observations and decisions back to Google then to other cars then the next car wouldn't need AI and could improve knowledge of the area, plus any particularly bad problem spots can be highlighted for further investigation at Google HQ.

Personally, I think that's a brilliant idea. Some how I don't think the privacy rights crowd is going to be thrilled it though. The "Evilz Big Corporation" will be able to take over the world, control your mind and force you to buy figgy pudding. The only thing stopping them now is not knowing where you are physically located.

I was thinking the same. Then I found it amazing that the same company that failed miserably in the automotive industry within the US has this kind of manufacturing capability. Daewoo makes all kinds of things. But this was not something that I would have considered. It's very impressive.

Because you complained about modding like a twat, modbomb on the way to as many posts of yours as I can, once I get me one of them piles of 15 I get regularly.

While I understand the sentiment, as I have been tempted to do the same in the past, I respectfully ask you to not abuse the mod system this way. The mod system is meant to be used to rate each post on it's own merits, not the poster themselves. I'm not judging Jane.q here, but even trolls can make a good point on occasion.

The chemists claim that Cheerios are by far the best in the cereal aisle at growing chemically productive fungi.

I wonder how much spin the marketing team at General Mills will have to put on this to be able to use it in advertising. I'd buy them for having the quote above printed on the box.

Correct, who gives an F?

Agreed.

If you are onÂ/. you are not even supposed to know who this "Jennifer Lawrence" is!

Normally I would agree with you. However, being that she was in two X-men movies you should probably turn in your geek card.

This news is for the monkeys praying to the monolith! (and by monolith I mean systemd)

I didn't know anyone was praying to systemd.And would guess anyone who is, will not care. The hairless monkeys praying to the nuclear warhead would probably be more interested.

From the second half of the first sentence of TFS:

...writes aboutÂseven of the biggest factors that predict what makes for a long term stable marriage in America.

Emphasis mine.

It would be interesting to see what the divorce rate of Hindus is after living in the US after 5, 10, 20 years. And what the differences are when one or both of the couple's parents live with them or close by vs. their families remaining a large distance away.

I'm sure the divorce rate would be much lower the average American marriage. But I would guess without the pressures of culture and family, it would go up.

Esso was around in the North East until '72-'73. My father worked at one on the PA turnpike during the summers when he was in college in the early 1960's. When Standard Oil was broken up in the early 1900's many of the companies had rights to the Esso name within their own state. Some didn't object to others using the name within their state as well.

I think the southern states had to re-brand in the mid to late 1960's to Enco

I remember the Mobil Pegasus well. I think it was pretty cool at any age. But that was the 1970's for you. We thought airbrushing naked women riding dragons on cars, and especially vans, was cool then too.

The Exxon tiger was around back then also.

Sure, if you smoke pot, you might end up like Carl Sagan, but you could also end up like Obama, Bush, or Clinton.

Do you want your teen to grow up and have 27% approval ratings? I thought not.

Marijuana must be much more potent than I thought. Clinton didn't inhale and look what happened.
