What about moving out of the US of A ? I hear there are other countries with running water now...
If you depend on driving a car to stay in shape either you are a professional rallye driver or the guy who spends endless time delivering stuff with a crappy old truck on winding backcountry roads. For the rest of us it won't make much of a difference IMHO...
If it's too hot, e.g. hotter than what's endurable with minimal socially acceptable clothing, I try to find a room that's a little colder to work in.
In any event, in any device, in any change, some human needs to be responsible for it. When it comes to my car, that someone can't just be me. When it comes to my sister, it can't be her. It's that simple.
True, wrong, wrong.
I would certainly trust myself with working on a car/plane/boat that I have MY ass in/on rather than anybody else. No one in the whole world does have a better reason to take special care than I do in this case and as an "amateur" I can spend the time and have an extra deep look at everything in general or a thing that has raised my suspicion in one way or another.
And I have certainly seen dangerously bad jobs done on cars by those "professionals"...
>Is that slightly better?
Yes, it is. He/she is going to get a live impression of me first rather than anything else.
>If there's something bad to learn about you, you're out of luck, no matter when you are googled.
If there is something to learn, knowing me in person firsthand might make a big difference on how this is perceived. This does not have to be the sex offender list, but my profession alone might be enough. If I was a physician, perhaps I don't want to hear people's medical problems immediately. I have been in situations where people told me afterwards that they would have treated me differently if they had known immediately that I was a foreigner. Prejudice against other nationalities and all. Once they realized first that I am a fairly normal person everything was fine all the way through.
Everyone wearing stupid Google glasses, in a dystopian future.
I hope I am not the only one here who would have an awkward feeling if I knew that someone I meet just did at least the equivalent of a Google search on me before we even talk.
And no, I don't give a fuck about sex offender list crazyness.
I do not want *anybody* to tell me who i should be afraid of or not.
News for nerds at least !
Please don't tell us that you believe this is true for a device that really only contains zeroes...
