I also think there is a huge market for this. Many people don't eat meat for environmental or social reasons. Lab meat, as it is probably less destructive than mass market meat, will be popular. The key will be cost. What could happen is that it will take the low end of the market, and we may see a return to more traditional ranching.
The truth is that million of pounds every day went from the UK to the EU. The truth was that some people in the UK wanted to believe that the money could be going into their council housing. The practical reality is that the money going to the EU was much less, and without the EU the much of money would have to be spent provided services and paying for new expenses.
Lets take a more concrete example. I often am asked why it takes 9 months to get to mars. Why we can't just do a 1g acceleration and get there in a week to a month. The reason is because in space we do not travel in line like we can do for short distances on earth. In space we travel in orbits, and we need to do a few orbits around the sun to go from the earth to mars. We do not have to do it this way, but this is way we do it so we do not waste energy, among other reasons.
The problem with facts is that we cannot just choose the subset we want then reach a conclusion that works. The problem is truth is that people will usually just believe what is consistent with the few facts they know. If we take truth, and facts, and observation of what has worked in the past, and a little innovation, we generally reach a workable solution. We know there is silver bullet, there is no free lunch.
On the other hand I think it is proper to question if encrypted evidence that was somehow returned to plain text should on it's own establish guilt.
To combat this they came up with an insane number of SKUs, and sold a stripped down system with the computer, that the user could them upgrade, and still now be able to transfer it to a new machine. For some one who wants to work with the OS professionally, it does lead to a situation where it is hard to take the seriously.
We have to recall the Quantum mechanics was a radical explanation for a real problem. Theory says that if you put a heat source in a black box the universe should be destroyed. This does not happen so the theory was wrong and we ended up with a theory was very difficult to prove. I have had professors tell me that the absolute proof of quantum mechanics, i.e. an experiment that could not be explained using an alternative theory, did not exist until the 1960's when lasers were used. That does not mean that an alternative theory will win out, but there is a great deal of support for QM.
Likewise, general relativity is only now getting empirical evidence that supports it as the most likely out of competing theories. We must recall that the impetus of general relativity was a lack of symmetry in the mathematics of Maxwell laws, having to do with identical magnets moving with respect to one another. Warped space is an elegant explanation for why things happen, but it may not be the best explanation.
Time is more complex. Right now thermodynamics, which is not considered as grounded as Newtonian mechanics, says the the universe evolves in one direction defined by the fact that entropy always increases. The are some measurements of the asymmetry of a nucleus that indicates that direction of time is a constant, but I don't think anything in physics right now decisively says there is an arrow in time, just an arrow in the evolution of the universe, which is why we don't have perpetual motion.
This guy is nothing more than the friction described in The Structure of Scientific Revolution. There are always going to be people who do not assimilate the growing accumulation of data, who are stuck in the current paradigm, and who will oppose all efforts to a paradigm shift. They understand that Physics does change, but they get hung up on disproving new theories and not their pet theories that they assume are already beyond reproach.
OTOH this is what we expect from JJ Abrams. He is, after all, the person who envisioned a world that could build starships but have no homeworld security or even basic defense drones. I understand we live in peace, but the Enterprise is welled armed, and we are not that far off from a third world war in the scenario. It is pretty silly that a conference room could be shot up or a starship destroy a good part of a city with no defensive measures taken, or that one would have to physically run to catch someone in a world where transporters exist.
So we just sit back and enjoy the films that lack the traditional cohesiveness of internal logic of the sci fi genre. We accept that some things are going to be introduced with no payback, just because he had a whim that it might be interesting and boost the commercial value. This is fine if you are doing TV, but major movie releases are supposed to be more thought out.
This is not the case of median home prices, which does represent the homes sold in an area, and a high median home price will result in families not being able to afford a home in that area if the median price. There is seldom an incentive to build cheaper housing outside of government programs. On the other hand, a person with a low budget can get a Nissan Versa.
Tl;dr there are a lot of cars under $20,000, so the fact that the average person can't afford the average car is irrelevant. The average person can afford a car.
Anyone who owns a Honda ex-eats to make sacrifices for a cheap car.
Innovation does not excuse a crappy product. There is no way that a death trap seat is the result of innovation. It is the incompetence and arrogance of an inexperienced agent thinking they can make a car. Sort of like MS in security in the 1990's. Not being able to write software for doors in incompetence in embedded systems. Writing consumer embedded code is different from web server ode where it can be updated every day or rocket ship code where you have great control over the use case. There appears to be little engenuety here, just standard feature bloat.
In any case, as much hate dealers, this problem is a result of lack of reputable dealers. Like trying to solve a problem on a website, you have no ability to take someone that has a direct line to the manufacturer.
