Will a self driving car be able to see in dense fog in the day time?
I use fog lights and slow down.
What happens when the detector can't see but the brain box thinks it still can?
Human drivers know from instinct what other human drivers might do in many
driving situations. Human drivers can't predict what self driving cars will do,
adding another layer of uncertainty and possible chaos to a human's drive.
How many miles have the people driven who think self driving cars is a good idea?

The government form said I had to pick a clinic and a doctor,

so I wasted my time researching clinics and doctors and picked them.

When I got the card I found out the government picked a different clinic and doctor then I did.

Here are some questions for Bernie. Do I have to smoke pot or can I smoke tobacco and can I afford to anymore?

Can I drink a soda today and what size, diet or sugared? How many miles can I drive today?

How about some fast food? Can I eat a steak? After eatin...

Peak electricity usage in the summer is between 5pm and 9pm,

that is when they tell you to conserve power.

If the sun went down one hour earlier in the summer

it would be one hour cooler when people get home

from work and run their air conditioner. It would be cooler

when people go to bed even if they only had a fan and they

could sleep better. Air conditioners are probably the highest

power users, so wouldn't we save power if it got cooler

one hour earlier in the evening...

Recording music is a hobby I use to escape the grind
and that is all.
You can upload your own songs, pod casts, DJ Mixes and other audio to
Audiomack to share with friends, promote your band

It is easy to setup your personal page, you can put a banner
at the top and a picture of you or your band.
Uploading is easy and you can load an album picture
with each song if you want. I have been using the site
for a few months and so far I find that the...

We have a space outpost 1 light year from earth that we want

to send a message to in much less than a year.

We have a collection of satellites in large orbit around earth

and a collection of satellites in large orbit around the outpost.

Each satellite will have a large mirror for collecting, focusing and reflecting

our transmissions. Each satellite will travel at 99% the speed of light.

When we transmit our message from earth we will utilize a satellite near earth

Here's the skinny.

I turned a computer into a guinea pig.

For 20 months I used only a firewall, opera and firefox.

The browsers were stock and kept up to date.

The computer OS was not updated.

After the 20 months I scanned the whole computer with

updated windows defender and found nothing.

The computer works great, don't try this at home.

FNC's Shep Smith: "We Are "Failing Our Children" Because We 

Can't Figure Out Why They Are Killing Each Other"


Here is a hint.

I am 54 this is how it was when I was in school.

They set the trash can on fire two classes a day.

Spit wads the size of baseballs made out of news paper.

Punched in the back getting on the bus for no reason.

Gum in the hair.

Eggs on the chalk board when the teacher turned her back.

Kids tee shirt said "flunk now beat the rush". ...

The problem with anything is trying to over control it.

Progress waits for no one.

No one has to force progress it will happen even if

you try to prevent it. The climate will take care of it self,

the human race will invent new technology and carbon pollution

will decrease.

The problem today is people are panicking and panic never works.

Just get out of the way and progress will take care of

any problem real or imagined.

Progress waits for no one.

Time is the propagation of electromagnetic radiation,time is light.
The speed of light is a constant because there is no way to
detect time changing speed in your own frame of reference.
The speed of time-light is only an operant constant.
The universe is filled with electromagnetic radiation,
light has a finite speed possibly because light must travel through itself,
this could be the limiting factor.Only light can travel at the speed
of light because light is time. If you could travel a...

1:Hydro Electric, Nuclear, Oil, Natural Gas, Coal
If you use it in your own back yard,
You should try to get it from your own back yard,
and always be as energy efficient as possible.2:Human beings are a product of nature, therefore anything
humans do is a product of nature.
I wonder if Yellowstone could heat a cup of coffee?
You put a pipe in the ground, the ground is hot,
put water in the pipe and get steam which turns a turbine
which turns a generator which generates electricity
