Yeah. Things seemed simple to me too when I didn't know anything.

Uh, actually, I didn't get it until barlevg pointed it out. Yes, I feel stupid.

Good thing there's no such thing as a soul then.

Or is it even remotely practical to identify specific package/truck combinations?

Maybe. But also know who is driving ahead of time and know their address, relatives, etc? Less likely.

Sure. As long as the same is done with Windows. We went from XP to 7 and every edition of Office with no training. In those cases, we all taught ourselves and each other informally. I taught myself Ubuntu at home, so it can be done. Let's just compare apples to apples.

Defense contractor here, and we get tons of training on how to avoid phishing and other cyber threats, espionage, sabotage, active shooter, equal opportunity, sexual harasment, emergency occupant, ad nauseum. For many people, it's in one ear and out the other.

"The event" means Jesus is on his way.

Ironic then that it's a false alarm.

But even if it did happen, it happened two million years ago, when mankind was little more than short walking chimps. Hard to believe Jesus made an enormous explosion in some other galaxy that would have no effect here 2 million years before being born. Or maybe you're just being funny. Hard to tell sometimes.

Do you trust human drivers MORE? To be clear, we're talking about the humans that text, drink, smoke, talk, and everything but look at the road and kill over 30,000 people in the US alone every year. THOSE humans?

That's the combination to my luggage!

I find it strange that people generally exhibit good critical thinking skills when it comes to Wikipedia (fact checking, understanding sources, looking for biases), but gleefully eat up their favorite news channels without a second of thought. No source of information is free of biases or errors, but at least Wikipedia actively works to avoid them.

Organic cat litters are really just jet fuel?

No, just fuel. Minus the jet. Try putting your reading glasses on. Or whatever.

The stupid is strong with this one.

Oh, the irony.

Don't go green.

Try shopping on the interwebs. I have a Nexus 7 3.0, and have had no problems finding a wide range of accessories on Amazon and ebay.

Essentially, it is getting impossible to spend your own money.

First of all, if you're using a credit card, it's not your money. You're borrowing from someone else. Second, WTF? Companies want to get paid, so spending money is only getting easier. NFCs, RFID keypasses, POS readers everywhere, even the vending machines take credit and debit cards now.

Love it. How about "Harder Better Faster Stronger" from Daft Punk?

Your own mileage may vary.
