The UN says they will launch a spacecraft in LEO in 2021. Musk says he will be launching 1,000 spacecrafts to Mars to colonize the planet. Total fucking lunacy. Is everyone disconnected from reality here?
This election has everyone nervous.
And willing to leave the planet.

I was waiting for someone to bring up this UTTER FALLACY.
COBOL is chatty/wordy, and resembles english, but it is not at all structured like english. It has very precise structural rules. You tell it "ADD X TO Y GIVING ANS", but you can't (productively) tell it "ANS IS X ADDED TO Y" or "ADD X AND Y TOGETHER TO GIVE ANS".
I'm am pleased to to be able to bring joy to your life. Yes, it was the first (and last?) attempt. We pro's have gone far beyond, and prefer to write code that looks like line noise.
Yes, it is clear. In a nutshell, you gave the top-level instruction to the AI comp. To bad today's comps have limited understanding. Unless you have a Watson, of course. We're getting there.
You do have a point, even if the computer didn't get it perfect everytime it would be nice to get some things done as easily as you could asking a human. Use google to search for the first 100 gas stations in our city, put the names and addresses in a spreadsheet. Thanks.
I agree. What Siri and others can do is still limited. I've often wanted the ability to do this.
