Costner needs to get with the times... just make a serial TV show instead, way more time to produce, write stories, develop characters, etc.

    Blue, all I would change to the site is this:
    Give us an option to donate to you so we can either get a t-shirt or rid of ad's.
    Patreon?

    Beyond that: I'd love to see more editorials about your gaming habits (beyond solo'ing Rock Band with 4 instruments at once).
    Beyond that, I hope you are all safe as we ring in the new year, and hope/pray we don't have another 2016 for 2017. Love ya all good/bad!
    More doggy adventures and pics!

    I plan to celebrate the new year at home playing The Long Dark with a nice Chimay tripel.

    Which will come first:

    - Blue's well-deserved retirement

    - The ubiquity of self-driving vehicles such that a drinking and driving PSAs are no longer needed.

    Be safe everyone.

    including the interactive drama Firewatch

    Makes you wonder if the author even played Firewatch.

    Adding a female char to Mario is pretty simple. Doing it for FW would require rewriting the entire game.

    ... wait a second - nobody watches General Hospital around here? oh, the sadness! oh, the tragedy!! life is such a cruel mistress... indeed, i am faint and need to take my leave to rest these weary eyes so soaked with the tears of the fallen..

    I watched back when Luke and Laura were a thing (mom came home for lunch during the summer break back when I was.... 7 or 8?). All My Children was the SHIT!

    I remember looking at the TV guide back when I was a kid and seeing Another World on in the afternoon. I was so stoked. Imagine my disappointment to find it wasn't another Battlestar Galactica.

    Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease is beyond horrible. For the victim and everybody around them. Mad Cow for humans essentially although there is a variant (according to the wiki, I didn't know that) that is more directly related. Every bit as devastating and fatal as that sounds. I have mixed feelings about our seemingly obsessive focus on celebrity deaths as a culture...but if these deaths bring attention, focus, and funds to fight shit like this, people can worship their celebrities as much as they want as far as I am concerned.



    That's how my mother died, about 3 years ago. The CDC could never pin down the origin. At first she was clumsy, then she kept falling down a lot (she was in her late 60s, so we didn't suspect anything), and just deteriorated from there.

    It's scary stuff...


    Wow, that's terrible.

    I believe they don't have to do any encouraging, and if they did it would backfire almost immediately. How many times do they have to suggest to (real) doctors to encourage patients to eat more bacon before one of them outs it on the Internet?
    You may have heard of this doctor before that encouraged people to eat as much bacon as they liked: Doctor Robert Atkins.

    He wasn't the voice of the medical establishment, at all. Your family practitioner isn't going to tell you to go on the Atkins diet; that's by and large something people bring up on their own. And I don't think you're going to find any evidence that he was motivated by payouts from the drug industry.

    It's true I've never heard that he was getting payouts from the meat industry, but he still convinced millions of people they could eat as much bacon as they like and still be healthy. That's pure evil on multiple levels.

    These diets work not because bacon is healthy, but because of restriction: you can't have ANY refined carbs, which is in 80% of all the food sold in the market these days.

    So you end up eating bacon and lettuce. At least you're not eating Oreos and Ritz and 600 cal lattes any longer. But the whole thing went to shit when the food industry started developing "Atkins-friendly" snacks, and snackers (most of us) were back in business. Then the Atkins people stopped dropping weight all of a sudden.

    There will always be a need for plumbers, brick layers, welders, mechanics, framers, painters and electricians for those that an advanced education is not an option.

    Also, I'm not sure that an advanced degree is necessarily any protection:

    Rural America did itself no favors by buying into the Trump fantasy; even if he does end up being a better than expected president (which is a huge if), the idea that he can turn the clock on the economy back to 1960 is pure nostalgia/magical thinking. Get an advanced education, kids: the days of mass employment through blue collar work are just about over.

    It's no mystery why lack of education was the biggest determining factor for Trump support.

    Sounds cool, you'll need strong progressive politics, the old-school will fight this in some way. Alt-Wrongs will talk about freedom of owning a car and all that and they'll never give in! Good times ahead.

    I'm not sure politics will play a huge role. Market forces will be a huge factor when taxi prices drop to a third or a quarter of what they are today due to not having to pay a taxi driver's salary and benefits. All of a sudden when people are paying $5 a day to get to and from work or shopping instead of $500 a month in car payment, fuel, repair bills, detailing, etc. they'll simply not buy a new one.

    You'll have a massive percentage simply letting their old car die and not buying another one. It will be analogous to cord-cutters today: instead of paying $150/month for cable and internet, they'll get a $40 internet connection and a couple of $10 subscriptions like Netflix and HBO. Just as the cable industry is shrinking dramatically, so too will the private automobile industry.

    It fixes the parking problem by lowering the consumer purchase of vehicles over time. Currently, you and your wife own 2 cars to do your 4 trips. Now you will only need 1 car to do those 8 trips you described. You've at the very least already halved the number of cars needed on the road per household. In reality, that one car will handle multiple households, further reducing the size of the fleet of cars.

    People will start carpooling more because the carpool cars will be cheaper than individual rides and there will likely be a lower wait time for them as well.

    He'll need 0 cars. There will be 0 personal car ownership. Or, more accurately, near-zero.

    Why should anyone own a car? If there's a constant fleet of cars constantly driving by, waiting to pick you up, smartly route you, and drop you off, why bother with a car at all?

    It won't be near 0, but it will be a much smaller fraction of what it is today. The rich will still want their own personal luxury self driving vehicles that aren't sullied by the common folk.

    And it will take centuries to get actual human drivers completely off the roads. Yes, their insurance will be sky-high, but there will still be those stalwarts who think they drive better than a computer ever could, and would be willing to pay for the privilege. And mandating self-driving cars exclusivity will be infringing on their "freedumbs" and they'll find allies in those "self determination" politicians to support keeping people on the road.
