The problem is when one person does better than everyone else at the detriment to society as a whole. Corporations and individuals should be socially responsible with their immense wealth, or risk losing it.
Of course not. They're dashboard Widgets.
I find parallel universes limiting. I run clusters of parallel universes across different time dimensions.
They're going to do this to the wrong guy and end up with a hit squad coming after them. At least I hope so.
I could see this working, but it would definitely be a crack shot.
Well, it's not quite so easy. You can have drones for orders of magnitude less cost than full on helicopters/planes...say $10-100K/drone instead of $10M/plane. Plus they can fly in inclement weather with no risk to humans. They can stay "on station" for days instead of hours. You can use 100s or 1,000s of them to search an area non stop until the mission is complete without having to have 1,000s of pilots ready to go at a moment's notice.
When drones start being used to evacuating people from disaster areas, they will be able to perform more risky landings without risk to pilots.

You don't know how to get there on your own by now?
we could build several of these for the price of a single B2 bomber.
wish we would spend our money on something like this instead.
And once that has happened, they will buy them and leverage their technology and user base.
Is my new-born career a dead end?
Yes. But your old career was a dead end. All our careers are dead ends. Life is a dead end. We all have to deal with it. You can give up, or enjoy what you have while you have it.
Truly inspiring words.
And not just because of the grammar mistake.
yup. think about how many parking lots we can reclaim. for most of us, transportation will become a subscription service with various tiers of luxury offered...although there will always be a few peeps who will want to own their car despite the added cost and hassle.
