Comment Autopilot works on Airplanes.. (Score 3, Insightful) 218

because there isn't much to run into in the air and flights are required to file a flight plan so they have clear airspace. Even then, you always have a pilot on the ready. And this has been around for decades. Letting a computer be in full control of your life on the ground at high speeds is foolish.

Comment Nothing posted about Socio-Economic Factors (Score 1) 323

The articles referenced post nothing about the socio-economic factors of these girls, which many believe has a lot to do with unintentional pregnancies, with our without any education. Additionally, I see nothing discussed about interviews with the teen-mothers to indicate if they were already thinking of becoming mothers prior to the sex-ed/robot baby teachings. Seems a lot of data is missing if you ask me.

Perhaps some genetics play into it, be he started walking 10+ miles a day at 60. At 49, I run a 5k in 22 minutes. I've been running for 8 years - I didn't start out at that. Do I have aches and pains? Yes. But far fewer than when I first started. Your body will inevitably break down, but lack of attention to it will accelerate that process.

I'm 49. My grandfather performed in the Senior Olympics at 82 and ran a 5K in 32 minutes. Still a record in Missouri. He lived to be 100. His body outlasted his mind. Life is what you make of it. If you sit around on you keester watching TV into your 80's, whining about your bladder or other items, you get what you deserve. Mark it Flamebait if you want. Truth is truth.
