Imagine when your coffee maker won't work because it doesn't detect that you've gotten up and into the shower, or the HVAC doesn't kick on for the room you've just entered because the house computer didn't detect occupancy, or the surround sound system malfunctions and thinks there's a party, so it turns on the music loudly at 3am, or the fridge's inventory list gets corrupted and it reorders everything that you have in an already full fridge...

OMG! Teh horrorz! Imagine being inundated with *extra* food. Noooooooooo...

Imagine ...

Imagine, your coffee maker works fine for years, automatically making your coffee as soon as you jump in the shower, and then one day, BAM! No fucking coffee. WTF are you gonna do now?!

God the future sucks!

Stastical modeling that makes a black yellow striped pattern look like a school bus, because it has no concept of anything and not intelligence in any sense of the word and that is the just what fits the statistical model.

No, I think you both still miss the point. I was "first post" before this article, Snowden, or anyone else. I was saying this was happening before even Slashdot's founding. I simply guessed it, well over a decade ago by following the money. Only then I wasn't rated "+5 Insightful" I was rated by my peers as "-5 crazy for saying the emperor is naked."

Will the real first post please stand up.

For everyone who is about to object: what do you think a drug bust looks like? They posed as drugs consumers/dealers and busted the parties buying/selling. This seems like what my taxpayer dollars should go towards: stomping out illegal activity where it is prevalent.

Not only is it a complete waste of time and ruins people's lives, it is a fucking waste of my tax dollars. Oh, but they sure are about to win this stupid fucking drug war.

Next you think they'll try to outlaw stupidity, thereby breaking logic once and for all.

It is the religion of 'peace'. They just define 'peace' a little differently.

Go out, and spread the religion by any peaceful means necessary. If your friend won't accept Allah, peacefully flog him in the streets. If someone insults Allah, peacefully remove his head. If a group refuses to convert to Islam, very peacefully bring your guns and bombs and peacefully kill as many of them as you can. If possible, obtain a peaceful nuclear weapon, and detonate it peacefully in their cities. They will be at peace. We bring them PEACE in the name of Allah!

In my state they made preschool "free". Within the year the tuition costs tripled from previous levels that were flat the previous 5 years. Every time the government offers something for free it's cost becomes unbearable.

So what you are really saying is that contracting out work that should be handled by the government to private businesses results in problems? Didn't see that one coming.

Nuclear is the only viable solution to replace fossil fuels as our primary source of power generation.

Yeah! You're either for us, or against us. You must be either on, or off. You're like a fucking light switch. There is no room for fuzzy, gray, socialistic, faggotry thinking.

Can't you assholes get that through your thick skulls?!
