In addition to the monetary advantages of hiring robots - like no need for pension or health insurance, robots don't come with the extra baggage that humans posses like dishonesty, corruption, insubordination, unwanted habits, inaccuracy, and plain simple human errors due many factors like fatigue and depression. I don't believe in biological macro evolution but I do think humans are evolving in intelligence and creativity. So I do see the trend towards shifting more and more of the boring repetitive jobs from humans to robots and automatons. Then humans can free themselves to work on the more challenging and interesting jobs like R&D, design, making content, and building robots.

There's this song that goes- "don't go to heaven alone; take somebody with you". Unfortunately, this man likely went to hell and thought it was a good idea to bring somebody with him. Sad ending - but makes for a good headliner. They should add this to the book on 1001 ways to kill yourself while getting maximum attention.

With Google self-driving cars and Tesla motors' all electric vehicles, Silicon valley is turning out to be the melting pot of the latest in automotive technologies. Who knows what's next - maybe we'll see Apple coming up with their own iCar in the near future.

The only real solution is to fix their minds. Tighter security is just like applying band aid to treat cancer. Replace this religion of hate and murder with the religion of life and love.

Out of the 30,000+ suicides committed in Japan each year why does this one get to have headline coverage? Japan should have a separate specialized news site just for suicides to give a chance for all these poor souls to have at least a day in the spotlight.

Mostly in the morning right after moving bowels. I also want to go to work fresh and with my hair not standing like a peacock. Occasionally at night if I feel too sticky like in summer or after a dirty day - involving exercise or a major trip. If I didn't sweat the whole day like in winter, a face wash before sleeping is sufficient. Japan has water in abundance so supply is not an issue; it's the water bill that we have to watch out for especially if you have a family.

What's all the fuss about the books getting wasted? All they need to do is cover it with a sticker of the correct illustration. And if they really want to save on cost, they should just have the teachers do the sticking for them.
