    July 20, 2018

    The number of people sickened by tainted McDonald's salads has jumped to 163 in 10 states. Three of the victims have been hospitalized.

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said the problem is caused by the Cyclospora parasite that is transmitted in foods contaminated with fecal matter.

    Last week, the number of cases was 61 people in seven states Ė 29 in Illinois, 16 in Iowa, seven in Missouri, three in Minnesota and two each in Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

    An updated state-by-state breakdown wasn't immediately available.

    The FAILURE of the United States Government to operate and maintain an
    Honest Money System , which frees the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, is the single largest contributing factor to the World's current Economic Crisis.

    yeah, but kiosks can't pummel somebody for trying to steal some soda.

    Kiosks will probably be linked to computer operated robots that will fill your free water for you. Soda refills will be acquired by simply revisiting the kiosk and rescanning your receipt.

    How many kiosks have been assaulted by customers?

    If I was a younger person starting out, this would make McDonalds more appealing actually because I've never liked the idea of being a cashier or dealing with the $#@! public.

    As a customer, I regularly use the Self Checkouts at Walmart and would be fine with using this if I want a McBurger or Coffee.
    Actually, they are already working with fully automated restaraunts....to include cooking




    This one does pizza (a few hundred per hour):




    And as much as it makes some people get all butt hurt, automation will replace any job that is process based (around 43% of American jobs) and it's not that far away.

    The robots will prepare the food in giant kitchens, automated vehicles will deliver to the building and a drone will deliver it to your 200sqft agenda 21 condo. That way you'll never have to interact with other people. Won't it be fun living in a jail cell and by your own choice? Make no mistake, that is what they're working toward.

    You're preaching to the choir, brother. I made my living for several years in robotic automation in conjunction with LEAN manufacturing implementation and later automation consulting and offered Ladder Logic work via the net from home. I had something of a "religious moment" one day and realized some of my pitch points about being able to eliminate labor premium as well as production cost per piece all the while boosting productivity was me just doing a good car salesmen tactic of using fancy words to say, "I make my living by $#@!ing people out of theirs'". That doesn't mean I judge other people who do the same line of work, nor that I oppose technology and free markets. It just means I had reached the point where I couldn't do it anymore.

    And it's kind of funny that you describe the advances as a jail cell of our own choosing, because you're probably a lot more right than you intended. Unless some crazy breakthrough happens we'll never see it in our lifetime but with the way they are integrating advances over several fields it's only a matter of time before we'll have the ability to copy our brains digitally as to allow for people to upload themselves digitally. The first time I had that scenario explained to me was back in 2009 while I was in Germany attending a technician school through HESSAP. When I said I couldn't see someone actually choosing to die to facilitate becoming a digital being, and that's when he started pointing around at the people in the park and everyone of them had their face in a device.

    It's freaky to think about, and worse it's sad when you realize that people will line up around the block for it when it comes. Digital immortality, with all senses being just as real as they are to you and I right now. And the ability to live whatever or whenever you want. The Star Wars universe, Star Trek, Conan the Barbarian, your childhood, old wife, ect. Able to download to a robotic form to interact with physical worlds if wanted/needed. Kids are literal drug addicts now with a game console....so imagine how the generation will be that is born in that tech being the norm.

    I honestly take solace in the fact I won't be around to see man willingly discard our own humanity and call it "evolving to a higher form of life"

    We already live in a make-believe fairy tale of reality. Make-believe money, make-believe news, make-believe laws, make-believe leaders, etc. May as well go full bore and turn the make-believe reality into complete make-believe, where even the dog sitting next to me right now isn't real and just become pod people like in the Matrix.

    The problem is digitization is lossy. Not an exact copy. Discussed earlier this year - http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...d-be-digitized

    Even if it were perfect it would still be a copy not the original.

    We don't even understand what consciousness is so we can't even guess at how to actually transfer it.
