I can't stand asshats who follow so closely. More than once, I've flipped over to sport mode and floored it to get some distance. Having a faster car is sometimes a great safety feature!

The issue isn't whether or not there is a shortage, but whether there is a shortage of qualified people willing to accept a low-ball salary.
Brown was hit with 4 non-fatal shots that would have stopped probably 95% of attacks, and kept coming. Remember, he was high as a kite at the time on weed and adrenaline. He didn't stop his attack until he took a round in the brain. Pistols are not really that effective at putting someone down quickly if they aren't afraid.
No amount of training would change the outcome in this case.
I did see where a guy managed to put a Chevy LS3 engine into a late-model 328i. That thing was a beast!
In Pennsylvania, it is codified as 10 MPH over in areas where the limit is under 65, and 5 MPH over in 65 zones. However, that tolerance doesn't apply in school zones or active construction zones.
That's why the suit also names their clients, who are also ultimately responsible for the actions of their "agent". Those are deep-pocket record companies who DO have assets, and lots of them.
Self-driving cars aren't likely to dominate, simply because many people actually LIKE to drive. At most, it will be used as an autopilot cruise control.
BMW's are very hackable - there's hundreds of little settings that can be coded in nearly every module of the car, there's 3rd party ECU firmware available as well to boost power, especially on the turbo models.
Why not simply hire them as civilian employees?
Google should just flip the EU their middle finger and close all operations there. No personnel whatsoever in the EU, and all advertising business through US brokers.
...this case should have been tossed. One can't file on behalf of another (unless they are a legal guardian or hold a power of attorney), and the plaintiffs also can't show any personal harm to themselves.
If they feel strongly enough about the issue, the remedy is political. Convince enough people that 2/3 of Congress and 3/4 of state legislatures will agree, and pass a Constitutional amendment.
Interestingly, I average similar figures with a 3.0 liter naturally-aspirated inline 6 - if I am easy on the accelerator.
As a CPO buyer, I don't care why they do it, but do like that I can get a 2 or 3 year old car at a substantial discount, while facing a much shallower depreciation curve. A BMW dealer mentioned to me that about 1/2 of their business is leases and about 1/2 is CPO & Used sales. Relatively few people buy outright new.
The Alice decision itself has a strong admonition to the lower courts about avoiding the "draftsman's art problem". The Supremes are tired of getting cases that have no actual merit due to a subset of patent attorneys just playing language games.
When 2/3 of all the jobs go to H1B temporary workers, I'd say that the degree is secondary to the visa.
