    Does this mean I have to register as an engineer with the state before I can attend Engineers Anonymous meetings in Oregon?

    When do you suppose was the last time Hillary actually drove an automobile herself? It's really not going to be much of a transition for her to go from chauffeur to AI-uber. There'll be no need any longer for a motorcade - everyone else's car will be informed via the network to get out of her car's way. As for those who want to continue with driver-controlled IC automobiles: the market will decide if there are enough of them to construct private highways and roads where they can be utilized. Otherwise they'll get to drive them on their own property, and their neighbors who will allow them to drive on theirs. This battle was lost long before the advent of self-driving cars - it was lost when government drove (pun intended) private roads nearly out of existence. The last time I checked the percentage of people advocating for privately owned and operated roads was in the noise.

    Forgetting the safety concerns ... just dealing with the labor impact (union and non-union): 1) Did bank tellers stop the advance of ATMs? 2) Did grocery store cashiers stop the advance of do it yourself checkout lanes? 3) Will fast food workers stop the advance of food ordering kiosks? What businesses consider is which option does it cheaper, faster, better === Edited to add === On the grocery store checkout process: the next step is to RFID tag each item in the store. Then the customer simply rolls their cart past the detector which rings everything up automatically. The customer pays with credit card and bags the items himself. You'll probably even have robots rounding up carts in the parking lot.

    I don't think there's enough evidence here to either confirm or disprove it. For instance there's 30 older men (which by itself is not a sample size I'd be content with for any study). It doesn't say they split them into two equal groups (15 in equal groups is an even smaller sample size). It doesn't say if the two breakout groups have similar age makeup - calling them "older men" could mean anything. It doesn't say if the two groups have similar activity/exercise profile distributions. Without adequate exercise you're basically using protein to grow nose hair, ear hair, head hair (if you have any left), fingernails, and toenails. It doesn't say anything about testosterone levels and if that's controlled for - which is a real biggie after you hit 60. Honestly, for a viable study, you'd need at least 5 to 10 samples in the high protein and low protein groups for each attribute that you're controlling for (specific age, specific activity/exercise levels, specific testosterone levels, and probably many more) 30 test subjects is just not enough sampling points for everything that needs to be controller for.

    If Mueller has anything on them, then I think they can count on Trump ... otherwise I see gravy and cranberry sauce entering their futures.

    BTW: It looks like the map with the push pins and markers comes from Mother Jones in a SEP2013 Article. What's more the push pins represent 2012 and 2013 training operations where the local troops were sent to US-provided training in a third country - so they don't necessary imply current US military feet on the ground. We're looking at data that's four or five years old. The article goes into details of the map in it's narrative. I don't see Madagascar mentioned in the article at all.

    Nope. The US has a drone base there. I was stopping back on this thread to see if we'd figured out which country was the one being ignored.

    No, the moral thing would be to steal the same amount from everyone, not proportion :rolleyes: Jeesh, WTF are we talking about with moral stealing? No theft is moral; and thieves take from whomever is easiest to steal from. So steal from liberals - they're probably not packing heat.
