Rain? What is rain? Google searching. Water from the sky. Understood. It's an endangered species here. We need rain. We really need rain. I mean, we really need it.

Only around $500? I would have attempted 50 to 100 K at least. It's a short domain name. It's a .com. It's most likely a potential movie title, quote, or book. It's culturally significant. Watch the winner resell it for a big profit.

I use a social GPS daily but I never understood the police warning. Why do I care if there are police? I'm a very grandma driver -- not much choice, going over 30 MPH + in LA for any extended period of time is unlikely.

If you go through Cutters history you'll find they're all well thought out...he's highly intellectual and has a great sense of humor.

Fixed.

The best part of having seen so many Star Trek episodes is that I get every joke on the The Big Bang Theory.

Someone will come up with a tech to beam advertising straight into our minds. At that point the Internet will start to become some weird retro old school way of information gathering; eventually, a tiny scribble in the history books.

Met Mr. Burton at a local radio show. He demonstrated the visor. Nice guy.

The Code Conference was taking place very close to home!

Very upsetting. It's my home town. I didn't know the victims, yet it feels like someme killed members of my family. It's hard to watch the news with dry eyes. Heavy heart.

Devastated by what has happened in my home town Santa Barbara. Considering returning to Europe. Too many crazies with guns in the USA.

I declare this entire discussion void. We all love Carmack and owe to him our nerdistic FPS gaming allegiance. It's impossible to be unbiased.

You can stand there, smell the garbage, or play in the garbage. Or you can toss the garbage, even better, recycle it. Your choice.

Thinking about bad things doesn't make them go away.

You are welcome to wallow in your self entitled misery. I use self entitled in the sense that you come across as a person that believes he should have been that person who had this or that background instead of being grateful for what he has now (food, shelter, and an Internet connection) and going for it. I can only hope my post will help someone who is considering taking the leap.

More whining ...

The next decade or century will be known as the age of the entrepreneur. The lack of company and corporate jobs will force people to do this. I'm not referring to entrepreneur millionaires. A person going door to door washing vehicles is an entrepreneur. The kid selling lemonade is an entrepreneur. The word too often implies getting rich quick. It used to be called 'running a small business' or 'contracting'. Every mom and pop shop, food vendor, painter, plumber, freelance consultant, house cleaner, gardener (who works on contract) is an entrepreneur. Do you recall the merchants and artisans in history class? They were entrepreneurs. Blue's News is entrepreneurial.

Labor intensive skills will slowly be replaced by robotics and AI. If you want to succeed, you will need to learn to service, develop or provide on a level that requires business acumen. Everyone can jump on this ladder. How high you start is simply a matter of motivation. Those from a higher education often have more motivation due to encouragement from mentors and peers. You can still do this on your own. Just be prepared to start at the bottom, forcing yourself to be somewhat obsessive to self motivate.

Start your own business. It doesn't need make millions in the first year. The business can be something as drastic as a new invention or as simple as selling small items or providing a niche service. Search for a need or an idea. Think about your everyday consumables and activities. Ponder what can be improved, serviced, or provided. The business idea is right in front of you. You don't need a higher education to start it nor do you need it to be successful. If you build it or sell it, they will come. Think positive. If you feel the passion, the success is sure to follow. The most important piece of advice I can provide is to surround yourself with people smarter than you. Make sure they are people that you can respect. Make good use of their talents -- be it employees, contractors, friends or simply mentors for advice. Don't pass too much judgement on what they do, just learn why they are happy doing it.

Jealous rant of other people's success with further ranting excuses of why not me.

Cutter is right.

I have a friend with a Model S. They are pretty magical. And the torque on that thing is incredible. 0-60 in 4.0s

Not spending money on gas is quite appealing. Having a sports car in LA is a complete waste of money. Good luck driving over 30 MPH, including the freeway, for an extended period of time.
