Absolutely. It's working for Mexico.

Sales Fall Again in Mexico’s Second Year of Taxing Soda

My only demand would be that the taxes from said junk/fast food be plowed back into subsidizing fresh food and working to get more people into local farming, victory gardens, etc. Use it to create a healthy revolution. At the very least refined sugar needs to be taxed like tobacco and come with the same warnings on the packages.

I guess he considers himself a futurist, and is therefore concerned with the problems of the future and not of those that actually exist today.

Had to renew my license today. First time since the DHS laws went into effect. It was some crazy big brother shit: all my documents (birth cert, SS card, etc.), scanned into a database with my photo, fingerprints, etc. Surprised the didn't ask for a fucking DNA sample. We're rapidly creating a turnkey authoritarian state.

On the other hand, when I complained the woman said they nailed some middle East guy applying for a license using a fake PA birth cert in that very office last year.

You should have said, 'Yeah, because catching one guy is worth 100s of millions of law-abiding Americans losing their civil and human rights.'

Those stairs are pretty cool but low-cost? I seriously doubt it. What's required is a new way of thinking and building homes and retirement communities specifically. Build small ranch style homes instead.

Okay, I gotta ask... what were her arguments for it?

Well IoT could be a positive in infrastructure. Take lights on streets, tunnels, etc. If they're faulty or dying they can let it be known they need to be replaced which can happen sooner than later. Does it have to be everything? Obviously not that's silly but there are aspects of it that could be a benefit.

Exactly. Shit, this was a little white woman in her fucking pajamas no less. Whatever happened to "Freeze police!" or "Come out with your hands up!" They obviously didn't even bother to check they just glimpsed something and unloaded on it. At this point I'd rather walk through some of America's worst ghettos at night than take my chances dealing with the police.

Woman who called 911 to report disturbance shot dead by cops

Remember what I said the other day why people don't want to call the cops. America, you seriously need a better screening process and training. Hiring these cowardly, trigger happy sociopaths has to stop. I mean, US cops are killing more people in a single year than other police forces around the world do in a century.

So George Romero and Martin Landau die on my birthday? Super. Thanks guys. I liked George but I was always a fan of Martin, particularly in Space 1999.

Female Dr. Who? Sigh. No. Just no. Does every last bastion of white male geekdom have to be retconned and obliterated to fit the marketing departments desire for complete market saturation wholly for profit and not a single thought to what made it good? I still remember watching Tom Baker as the Doctor as a kid. Maybe 1 in a million people knew who Dr. Who was or what it was about. I so hate all this whole bullshit geek is chic movement. Fairweather geeks aren't real geeks.

Could messing with the mosquito population have some unforeseen disastrous consequences? Not likely.

Famous last words. I guess if the zombie apocalypse starts in Fresno we'll know. Yeah, man messing with nature in a lab always turns out well. Rolleyes

Police say they shot two dogs who ‘charged’ at an officer. Then the homeowner posted her video

Hope they nail that fucker right to the wall. They saw crime has been decreasing over the last decade or two. I don't think so. I firmly believe it's people would rather deal with it by themselves than involve cops because you're in a hell of a lot more danger with cops around than criminals. That's how fucking bad it is. It says a lot when people are more afraid of cops than crooks. They're really nothing more than just a huge gang working for the rich at this point in time.

I think they're vastly overestimating the importance of Whole Foods and its impact.

“This transaction occurs during a long period of economic concentration that has already caused a decline in workers' wages and mobility,” the congressman wrote, “essentially allowing a small number of monopolists to hoard the ‘fruit of economic growth.’ ”

And it would be funny a republican congressman is saying this if it wasn't so sad.

I feel sorry for the guy that lands the role of Greedo at Star Wars land. Having to act out the getting shot part in the cantina with toruists playing Han over and over and over all day long, day in and day out. Or the slave chicks at Jabba's pad getting oggled by the nerd-pervs all day long, 'Hey baby, wanna handle my lightsaber?'

The eel story in the NYT is better. Love the post from the Oregon DOT...

"We're signing off for the evening, but I doubt we'll sleep tonight because...#eels"

Good hopefully now they stop wasting money on this Mars nonsense now. How many billions have they already pissed away on this?

"Judge Charles Pater, however, doesn't think the data's use has bigger privacy implications:

"There is a lot of other information about things that may characterize the inside of my body that I would much prefer to keep private rather than how my heart is beating. It is just not that big of a deal.""

This asshole not grasping the whole slippery slope and precedent thing. And as the doctor said, it was improbable, that doesn't mean impossible. The guy probably did do it, but hanging a trial on evidence this flimsy is just all kinds of bad waiting to happen. Way too many innocent people go to jail on this sort of flimsy bullshit.

How is the criticism unfair, Bri? People are paying a grand plus - not counting if they have to upgrade their PCs as well which could be another couple of grand - and what's been produced so far? Some bullshit tech demos they have the gall to charge money for. I'd say the criticism is more than fucking valid at this point. Wake me when VR is cheap, powerful, and there are actually games people want to play.
