If you allow drug you, you pretty much mandate it for an athlete to be successful.
The sad truth is that we're already there, because drug prohibitions in sports have proven to be largely unenforceable.
They have something like this at the Denver Museums of Nature and Science robotics exhibit. It's these, actually.
The focus is more on electronics and robotics than logical structure, but similar. They were very fun to play with. My kids spent most of their time at that station.
This is maybe possible, provided
I know people who have been in QA for a half a decade who feel like they've forgotten how to code, but I bet if they started doing it again they'd pick it back up very quickly.
I still enjoy playing mine. I just hope that they continue to support online play for a good, long time, because Mario Maker and Splatoon will be pretty worthless without it.
I mean, I get why they'd discontinue a marginal platform like this, but Nintendo lives and dies by brand loyalty, and it would make me feel WAY less loyal to have several of my favorite games suddenly become mostly unplayable.
Part of the genius of Amazon Prime is that it capitalizes on the sunk cost fallacy. I (happily) give them $100/yr to allow me to shop there with no shipping costs, and, by god, I'm going to get my money's worth. I'm not going to squander my sunk costs by shopping at some brick-and-mortar store! IMO, this is one of the biggest hurdles Walmart has to overcome.
I think Walmart is right that accessibility and immediacy is sometimes desirable. If I blow a tire on my bike and I want to ride to work tomorrow, I'm still heading to a brick-and-mortar store. I can grab a few groceries while I'm there.
I do also think they could leverage their distribution network. There's a Walmart on pretty much everybody's way home from work, and it's only a minor inconvenience to stop in to pick something up. I've done it before for larger items that Amazon wouldn't ship free.
But that Prime, though! I love it, and I wouldn't give it up, and there's no way I'd pay somebody else for a similar service in addition to it. That's where they've really got me. That's how Amazon went from something I only used for hard-to-find items to my go-to vendor for practically everything.
...how many are cost-cutting cord-cutters supposed to maintain at once?
One. Or zero. Or five. Your choice. That's what the free market is all about.
If I didn't know better, I'd say it sounds like you're arguing against competition. If that's your thing, then just pay your money to Comcast or whoever, and ignore all the others. For myself, I'd prefer to use Netflix for now, and then if I get bored of their content, maybe try Hulu for a while, or Amazon, or maybe a couple of 'em at the same time...
The point is that I get to choose. I won't be choosing YouTube Red unless they bring more to the table, but I still welcome them to come and try to compete for my business.
