Suggested models for self-driving cars:

The Trump: Erratic performance, but it will drive libbies crazy.

The Obama: Will drive you anywhere except anywhere near red lines.

The Hillary: Works for a while, then conks out and needs to rest for a few days.

The AOC: Looks great on the outside, but the inside is completely empty.

The Barney Frank: It loves to be rear-ended.

The Ted Kennedy: (Nah. Too easy.)

What is the cost of lies? It's not that we'll mistake them for the truth. The real danger is that if we hear enough lies, then we no longer recognize the truth at all. What can we do then? What else is left but to abandon the hope of truth and content ourselves instead with stories. In these stories it doesn't matter who the heroes are. All we want to know is who is to blame. - V. Legasov

7.5/10.

That was actually pretty good, Uly! Maybe your time out allowed you to recharge your brain a bit!

Keep it up!  Smiley

The Manafort :  A car with no seat and no steering wheel.  It's for people who have lost their ass and don't know which way to turn.

Yeah.

They're working on it.

The concluding paragraph after reporting on the wonks "claims" that "could" help...

As with all research, it's worth noting that promising results in the lab may not scale up to a usable real-world product.

We are a long way away.

I actually expect inner city transit to be the first area this technology takes off.  Bussing.  Moving from point to point between and on easy to reach, special preferential lanes carved out for the bus.  We already have all the infrastructure in place.  It's not too dissimilar to the subway system.  Bussing is definitely an "auto pilot" proposition for the drivers.  They're just watching for shit in the way and hitting the brakes.  That's the perfect job for self driving.  If a sensor errs on the side of caution ... oh well.  The bus is stopped.  And for articulated vehicles btw.  Since that's where articulated vehicles already are. 

But of course ... they'll still have a driver there for emergencies for a long time.  Even the subways still have an operator.  And they're on freaking rails.

The question isn't whether or not we're descended from monkeys.  The question is, when are we going to stop descending?

I love the idea of the technology but I also love to drive. I don't want that taken away from me but it's a really cool thing.
