Putting gender aside (though you shouldn’t), if you work in advertising, public relations, broadcasting, law or financial services, you have a reason to fret.

If the robots are doing a better job at Public Relations, we're doomed. But at least we'll be happy about it.
Given the small subset of things PR reps are allowed to say, should be pretty easy to automate.

Over time in soccer should be 15 minutes with no goalies. Whoever scores more wins.
Obviously that isn't going to happen, but it is interesting to think about. What would that looked like... I mean, would you leave 4 guys standing on the goal line and play 7 on 7? I mean, people have scored from mid-field with a goalie playing (granted, the goalie was out of position but... ).

My thought is that whichever team scored more goals would have one goal added to their final score as to not disrupt the stats. So if Spain and Russia play and finish regular time tied 1-1, then they would play one 15m period with no goalies. If Spain scored 5 goals to Russia's 3 in the overtime period, the final score would be 2-1 Spain (not 6-4).

Went swimming with sharks in Malaysia in the 90s, and the locals attracted them to the bay by throwing cooked chicken into the water. They'd let you help, and some poor woman tourist tried to hand feed the shark and got nipped on the fingers by razor sharp teeth. There was lots of blood, but she just got scratched, didn't lose any fingers.

Was pretty cool snorkeling with all those black tipped reef sharks though.

Penalty kicks are, and always were, lame. Either the kicker keeps his cool and just puts it away from the keeper entirely, or they crack under the pressure/flub it. Keepers only get a chance when the kicker makes a mistake. They have no choice but PKs though, they can't play forever.
Over time in soccer should be 15 minutes with no goalies. Whoever scores more wins.
*EDIT* Also, I'm not sure if it's that woman's fault, but whoever is responsible for the utterly terrible plots(approval and writing, etc.) of 7 and 8, and to a certain extent, Rogue One, should definitely be fired. Solo was the best of the new movies by far, although apparently it did the worst at the box office.
The new movies weren't planned with any overarching story in mind. That, coupled with their derivative nature, results in poor quality and disjointed movies. That's what happens when you make movies designed to sell tickets as opposed telling a good story.


Haven't seen Solo yet, but Rogue One is the best of the new bunch. Also, say what you will about George, at least he was trying to tell a story.

I don't give a crap about consoles, but I wonder what's up Sony's but about crossover games on the PS4.
It's simple. They have the largest ecosystem, so if your friend has a PS4 and you don't, but want to play with him, you have to buy a PS4. It's the kind of BS that MS tries to get away with all the time, but Sony actually has the leverage.

Currently, most manufacturers are offering 8-year/100,000-mile warranties for their batteries. Nissan is providing additional battery capacity loss coverage for 5 years or 60,000 miles

I bet that detail isn't in the sales literature, neither is the cost of replacing the cells.

Dad still uses his gen 1 Prius he got like 12 years ago. Batteries still fine. Different tech, but still.

what tech? lead-acid batteries? if so, shocking (pun intended =) they lasted this long.

I think they're NiCad as opposed to the Leaf's LiON.
