I thought that self-driving cars still had to have a "driver" in them, ready to take control in the event of of an incident. Are these Uber cars going to come with an Uber "driver", or is the passenger expected to take over when* that incident happens?
What if that passenger does not hold a licence, or is not fit to drive through intoxication? Does the passenger get some sort of discount because they might be expected to step in and do a bit of driving?
* note 'when', not 'if'
He has killed no one.
Not directly, but how many lives have been endangered or ended as a result of the bad guys getting access to leaked information and then using it to their advantage?.

I've already patented patents. You give me all of your money
I'll be honest, I don't know the OP...but I can't believe that they do not benefit from any tax-funded services. POlice has been talked about extensively earlier in this thread, but I can think of plenty of other examples...
- Education system (although, given the stupidity of the "no taxes" remark, I suspect any journey through the education system was not entirely successful)
- Fire and rescue services (may not have used them, but I bet that if their house started burning down, they'd be wanting a big tax-funded fire truck to come to the rescue
- Healthcare? Not sure about this one, on the assumption OP is in the USA. As a Brit I've never really understood what, if any, of USA healthcare is government-funded.)
- Public transportation. Has the OP never used some form of public transport which receives some form of government subsidy
- Weather forecast? Again, not sure abut how it works in OP's territory, but here in UK weather forecast data is supplied to media, etc. by a government- (i.e. taxation-) funded agency
There are other examples, but that's all I can be bothered to type right now - I'm meant to be working, earning money with which to pay my fair share of taxes.
Camera = surveillance = Evil
3D printed = super cool
Is this a good thing or a bad thing? I'm confused
