The socialist state IS the insurance.
But breeders, who are placing a greater load upon the system, actually get a deduction for each rug rat. They're expected to pay less in taxes because they're producing offspring we don't need, unless we're short on low-information voters.
Actually no. I went out and engaged in another activity other than sitting in front of my PC all day.
I didn't actually imply that I hurt your feelings. But clearly I insulted someone.
The rules changed last August for everyone, not just commercial guys.
Yeah, that's when the AMA published this information. Last August.
Aww, did I hurt someone's poor wittwe feewings? Probably a pilot, huh? As an AMA member in good standing who actually reads his copies of Model Aviation I know that one doesn't know what one is talking about when one claims that you have to ask permission to fly within five miles of an airport. The AMA requires members to notify an airport if they wish to operate a model above 400' AGL when within 3 miles of an airport. The law requires all UAS pilots (registered or not) to notify an airport when operating within five miles. The AMA also informed me that "most" airport addresses and contact information are available at Skyvector.com but that if you can't make contact, or if you want to establish a permanent flying location, you should contact the AMA for assistance.
If you think you may not operate a drone within five miles of an airport without permission, you are badly, sadly mistaken.
As a hobbyist, you're required to get permission (good luck with that) to fly within 5 miles of any airport (including heliports and grass strips),
No. As a hobbyist, you are required to notify the airfield. You don't have to ask permission. You can send them a letter saying you're going to be flying out of a particular area frequently, too, so you don't have to notify them every time. Some airports have actually set up webpages so that you can notify them with a web form, e.g. Watsonville. I guess if you can get certification, I ought to get off my ass and get it as well.
Remind me again, how exactly did you come to exist on this earth? Oh yeah, that's right, those darned breeders.
Yeah, and look at how badly the world needs me! Why, if they and others like them hadn't brought billions of people onto this planet (just since I was born) the world would have positively ended by now!
Granted, I wouldn't be here, but I would never have been here so consequently I wouldn't miss it. There wouldn't be an I to be upset about it. Unless you subscribe to some belief about magical sky spirits who come down and inhabit all good christian babies at the time of conception (or similar) then it's irrational to argue about policies on the basis that they would have prevented your birth unless you're really something special. Are you really something special?
Perhaps we should mandate an hour of studying the Constitution every day, for an enslaved society is still enslaved, no matter how skilled they are.
If they did that, they would just tell you what to think about it just like they did when they taught you about it the first time. You know, the constitution was all sunshine and kittens there for our benefit. Remember that? More of that won't help.
ah, that doesn't sound quite right but still cooler than a dull old state senate bill.
Let's put him in a room with Florida Man and see who makes it out alive.
Some of it is just good old stubbornness (heavier than air flying machines will never be possible!) and some of it is just having to overcome the assumptions based on, let's face it, manifest destiny. We can do whatever we want to those animals, because God gave them to us, and we'll make up any excuses necessary to justify it.
The problem is that all these attempts to interest kids in STEM are so earnest and dull.
What we should be doing is tempting them with mad science. You see? It's not all death rays and monkey testicle implants.
It's important to hook them by middle school, when the all important sense of being misunderstood is its keenest.
That's not fasting. That's a modified fast. Wimps and their half-arsed fasts.
is having a family in the first place rather than being single and child-free considered poor "life choices"?
Perhaps it's time for the first world to consider child insurance. It's not fair for the rest of us to have to foot the bill for the breeders' decisions.
can easily replicate all the processes running in the bumblebee's brain
If bumblebee brains had process management, you might have a point. But they don't. They don't even have well-ordered control flow. Neither do we.
the supposition is that at least some subset of people operating self-driving cars will be people who never touch the controls (perhaps are not allowed to touch the controls),
Once again, you speak from a position of authority which is completely devoid of evidence. How many people are currently using self-driving cars without the ability to operate a vehicle?
GP says "will be"
You say "are currently"
You also claim that there's no evidence for their argument, but that's only because you are spectacularly willfully ignorant. This is actually the definition of level 5 autonomy.
If complaints about off-topic and pointless SJW snark bother you, perhaps you should consider what compels you to defend such irrational behavior in others.
Show me on the picture where the immigrant touched you.
The reason why worry kills more people than work is that more people worry than work.
