Posted in: Magazine asks women if they’d rather date an ugly millionaire or unemployed hottie See in context

There's no such thing as an unemployed hottie to the vast majority of women. A woman could still be appealing to a man without a job or money but the rules of attraction simply don't function like that the other way round.

Posted in: Volvo says self-driving cars will react 'faster than most humans' See in context

If the hype about self-driving cars is true and they can be shown to be safer, I don't see how the arguments like driving is fun, or we can't implement laws to determine who's liable in accidents etc. are going to fly. I mean just a 10% increase in safety would save so many lives. I bet it'd save a lot more lives than all the expensive wars on nouns such as terror, drugs etc.

Maybe he should try a career change. Like that other FIFA clown ref from the Italy South Korea game who later became a drug smuggler.

Posted in: How come Japan has never demanded an official apology from any U.S. government for the dropping of atomic bombs on two of its cities? In fact, why don't Japanese hate America for dropping the bombs? See in context

We in Europe like the Americans less than the Japanese do

I didn't know "we" had reached consensus on the subject.

The US is still at the forefront in terms of anti hacking and software development, far and beyond anyone else to date.

Then its pretty embarrassing how the US government proclaimed themselves the injured party so loudly when Gary McKinnon hacked into military and NASA computers doing no more harm than leaving a message to tell them their security was rubbish.

This one sounds so bad it'll make that look like the original Ghostbusters.

I'm sure that'll be popular just like the half-mast flags flown around the world last week. When it comes to dealing with the Saudis, western leaders don't even bother to pretend that they're working for the people who elected them.

Recruitment propaganda. Scary thing is "89% liked it" on Rotten Tomatoes. I've heard some people in the US saying they wanted to walk out but were too scared as they might be seen to be un-American.

There were signs Clint Eastwood was losing it when he had an imaginary conversation with Obama at that Republican convention.

Posted in: IS tells NHK it doesn't really need money; video authenticity questioned See in context

If the video is fake, you'd think there would be appropriately qualified experts saying so all over the world's media. I find it difficult to believe IS could fake a video that would stand up to the scrutiny of people with the right equipment who know what they're looking for. Experts on shadows... well if I believed them I'd be falling for every conspiracy theory in the book.

Back in the day a good page 3 might require a re-read, alone in the bathroom. Now it doesn't even catch the eye as we've all seen things we didn't even know were possible thanks to the Internet. I didn't think anyone still cared.

Owning a basic apartment in Tokyo would put you into this 1 percent. So if you do, or have comparable assets, please stop complaining and start redistributing.

Average world income per person is estimated at about 10,000 USD. If you earn more than this, start redistributing!

Posted in: Manhunts, death threats as Europe on high terror alert See in context

Apparently the UK has upped its terror alert from "substantial" to "severe". Presumably all that's left after that is "blind panic". And from the country that said keep calm and carry on during the blitz.

During the industrial revolution, the ultimate distorter of wealth distribution, countries such as England got much wealthier, did that mean that, say, China got poorer?

Posted in: Google expects public in driverless cars in 2 to 5 years See in context

Driverless car A crashes with Human drive carr B. Owner of car A says it's not my fault i wasn't even driving, so who pays? who is liable?

Well, I guess if its a software fault, the software manufacturer, if its a hardware fault, the manufacturer of the hardware. If the driver hasn't properly maintained it, or is using the software/hardware outside of its specifications or something, a bit like driving around without valid shaken now, the driver of car A. If this is going to be a very rare event, and a company, say Google, is making enough money out of the industry, I guess they'll pay when rare events like this were to happen.

How on earth can you make this massive assumption. Who's to say there won't be more accidents more people killed?

The testing that has been done. Like driving 700,000 miles without an accident. There's a lot more to be done, like adapting to poor weather conditions safely but they'll get there.

Posted in: Google expects public in driverless cars in 2 to 5 years See in context

I would guess the majority of people who drive cars enjoy doing so. Where is the enjoyment in a driver-less car?

It will become an ethical/moral issue once driverless cars are proven to be safer than human drivers. If you've got 6000 road traffic fatalities per year in a country like Japan, and you can reduce it to close to zero, its hard to justify not to.

And what happens when inevitably one of these things crashes, who's fault is it?

We have that problem already. Manufacturers of equipment, cars etc. can be prosecuted if they don't follow laws regarding safety. Sometimes accidents happen and its no one's fault.

and how can you prosecute a machine?

You don't that's silly.

this will be an insurance nightmare.

But with less people killed or seriously messed up.

Glad they arrested that very unpleasant man Dieudonne. Don't think it will dent his popularity much though, and its worrying that a man like that can be so popular in today's France.

Posted in: France declares war on terrorism after attacks See in context

This far-right construct was most recently spewed by a Fox News "terrorism expert" about Birmingham, England. Said "expert" subsequently apologized for not doing his homework.

The general point he was trying to make is true though. I think his apology is a bit tongue-in-cheek.

He's gone to three world cups as our "main man" and got one goal. The same number as Matthew Upson. Time to give someone else a chance.
