Art Depot will experience a run on these SKUS , they will be backordered, then when half the population is thumbless,the backorders will be cancelled. There will never be a true shortage.
should move to the dark-matter-web, a mesh of such complexity that not even God can find it.
What you want the next generation to be created by the rich who can afford them or the poor who seem to have the time. No wonder the middle class is dying out.
I saw that movie.
"A heroic service dog saved the day by dialing 911 and pulling her blind owner to safety after the home they shared in the Holmesburg section of Philadelphia caught fire on Thursday morning. Yolanda, a golden retriever, called 911 on a specialized phone...."
normally, service dogs are trained to hit any button because they are all programmed to dial 911
Just saying, there is such a thing as disinformation
Somehow, rental car companies stay in business. Sure, they clean the car between renting it out again, and some people are rough on rental cars, but they will make it work. Currently, they hit your credit card with an extra $150 or more that they refund when you return the car. And what that doesn't cover, the insurance will.
Uber drivers and their cars are just standing in until self driving cars are more of a thing.
The idle rich have hobbies financed by their trust funds. You can consider a Basic Income scheme to be a trust fund for the rest of us. Then jobs can be seen as something fun to do to advance society, provide meaning to life, or bring in extra cash, above and beyond what is needed to eat and sleep under a roof
The big job for the next generation of political economics will be figuring out how to redesign our economy so that people who now must work for a living can do something else and still live. Something better than becoming a criminal or finding a sugar daddy.
The ad blocker needs to be able to learn. If a ad isn't yet known to be offensive, show it, but also give me a button to "block this and all similar ads". Then, maybe the system will learn which ads it really should be showing me.
I'm sorry that you got modded down. Your comments are interesting even if you are drawing the wrong conclusions.
Websites can detect ad blockers, so you or someone you work with should be able to tell you how many of your readers are using ad blockers. I'm sure you will find more than 1 ad blocker in use during a 5 day period. It's much easier to install an ad blocker than to file a formal complaint.
I know for me, it's the animated ads and the noisy ads. I can't read the article if there is something bouncing around the screen. I don't like sound either, especially if I'm in a public place. Sound will get me to close a tab really fast. It's faster to close a tab than to turn down the volume. With the animated stuff, I at least tried, reloading sometimes, in an attempt to get a less bothersome ad. Nothing is more frustrating than not being able to read an article because someone things that the ad is more important than the content.
When what people do becomes makework, then the people are called deadwood. Maybe they get laid off, or maybe they are bought out. Maybe they just work until they want to retire. But, one thing is for sure, deadwood is not replaced.
If there isn't a stigma against that, we need to invent one. The rich have lawyers and accountants to do what would be considered cheating if someone with less political clout tried to do something similar.
Pohl's law: Nothing is so good that somebody, somewhere, will not hate it.
