The human race has already developed cheap, portable supercomputers, many time more powerful than the CIA's 'supercomputer' that are expert at predicting social unrest. I have one in my possession right now.

By simply 'walking' around the target district and simply 'talking' to people, you'll get a pretty good sense of whether social unrest is going to happen.

Why does everything need to be done by remote control using computers?

The principle here is 'be selective about who you listen to'.

Sometimes just listening to the client is the quickest way to get things done, instead of listening to the other programmers. In other words, just find out what the code is supposed to actually do, rather than how it's supposed to do it.

Could you imagine any 12 current actors trying to pull off 12 Angry Men?

Kevin Spacey, Al Pacino, Don Cheadle, Jonathan Pryce, Robert Downey Jr, Harvey Keitel, Vincent Cassel, Jack Nicholson, Jake Gyllenhaal, Morgan Freeman, Denzel Washington, Sean Penn,

Aside from people who'd actually get cast in such a movie nowadays, like Steve Buscemi, Paul Giamatti, Christopher Walken, John Malkovich, Tom Hanks...

Still no shortage of great actors.
