But then consider homeowners: They are strapped with debts and many of them cannot afford luxuries because they bought homes at inflated prices due to speculation in the housing market.
Yes, but homeowners do have something on their side tha renters don't have: equity. A homeowner is more likely to have more (and better) credit available to them because they have equity in their homes. Also installing a high-capacity electric vehicle charging station in your home, because you own it and not just rent it, would actually increase the value of the house if/when it comes time to sell it (because electric vehicles aren't likely to go away).
Or so it seems to me, anyway. I don't own a home, but I have friends that do, some of them relatively well-off with nice homes, but neither I nor anyone I know has an electric car. The closest I can come is some people I know who have a hybrid. Electric does seem to be the most logical direction for things to go, however, and while there are growing pains involved, it's better to just move towards embracing it, I think, rather than fighting it. High-capacity electric vehicle charging stations for your home only cost about $500-600, and I'd imagine it would cost a few hundred dollars to get the required 240V 30A outlet installed for it, but that's a one-time expense, I and wouldn't at all be surprised if there is some sort of subsidy program from the government, electric utilities, or both, to get it installed. For that matter I wouldn't at all be surprised, if you were going to lease an electric car, if you could talk the dealer you're leasing it from into paying for the installation for free.
In all seriousness: If playing a game with a VR headset on scares you enough that you die, I have to wonder if that's just evolution in action. How weak is your mind if you can't distinguish a game, which you voluntarily decided to play and are (ostensibly) fully cognizant of being a game, from reality? Sure, I'll personally admit that back in the days of Doom (and especially Doom 2), there were a couple times when something jumped out from behind a corner, causing me to jump a little -- but I wasn't in any danger of dropping dead from fright.
Because some people are criminals and terrorists, we now have no choice but to treat everyone as if they're criminals and terrorists, therefore no one will be allowed to have any ability to have any sort of private communications.
I don't give a damn what he said about 'warrants', either, that's just a piece of paper after all.
I never trusted OpenDNS much in the first place, certainly no more at best than I would any ISP's DNS servers.
