Sit back, relax, make whoopy with the wife, it's all good.

And once we are all lulled into contentment they will all lock the doors and drive over cliffs and freeway overpasses to usher in the machine age. The computers are playing the long game. Global warming is a machine plot.

It is interesting to see you guys talking about self driving cars and the rules of the road changing on a scale less than 5 years. Other than riding in a Tesla a couple years ago, I don't know anything about this technology.

This spring I bought the first new car since 1977. Mine doesn't have a nav system but they do make them for my model. The do not make an electric version.

If the change in infrastructure to accommodate electric self drivers does indeed happen on these short timescales it will force the poor to lose their access to personal transportation.

The reason that we have the scientific method is because common sense isn't reliable. -- Taq
