Surprising, isn't it?

I'll stick with my fear mongering fake-news, thank you very much. /s

So we had even more losers in the 70's & 80's, whodathunkit.

Just dreadful!
People aren't going to tolerate this much longer I suspect, not when their children are the targets.

People with 7th century ideologies don't belong in modern society, and they themselves don't want to live in a modern society. The solution seems pretty straight forward to me.

So what's your straight forward solution?
you just had to ask.

As long as microsoft did the programming for skynet I won't fear it because I know with the first update it will break.

Also congrats to Denis for his Arrival award. Well deserved. He's the only reason I am looking forward to the new Blade Runner.
With Arrival and Sicario under his belt I don't think you have anything to fear. Wish he would have directed Alien:Convergence

Do you think that failure to patch systems was a reason last week's worm spread so widely.

I think the #1 reason was opening the email that triggered it to begin with then not having the patch. That is what they survey says.
True that, however a patched system would have been immune to poorly trained employees. You can't fix stupid.

And as always when robots replace all these people who's going to have any money to buy anything? It's self-defeating. That was one of the major reasons for the downfall of Rome. There were so many slaves in the empire that citizens couldn't find work. And that started the whole downward spiral of bread and circuses.

So we're all going to be gladiators for the robots? :o

No, we're going to be batteries. Duh.

In any case, I do agree that it's so short-sighted the way every single corporation RUSHES to automation. Have fun not selling anything and watching all your robots just sitting there doing nothing.
Well, this is the result of largely unregulated capitalism. We have a concentration of wealth that we've not seen since the robber barons 120 years ago. Basically, only government can overcome this trend, as it's in each individual corporate interest to be as efficient as possible, and robots are cheaper and more efficient that people for most jobs. Right now, laws are 98% correlated to what companies want, and only 50% (random chance) to what people want.

At minimum we need:
- Complete ban on corporate lobbying
- Total public funding of all elections
- Double the capital gains tax to help fund Medicaid/Medicare for the increase in the roles that job loss will create
- Remove the $100K cap on the payroll tax funding Medicare.
- A 30 hour workweek, to spread remaining work among more people.
- Increase the minimum wage to $16 per hour
- Subsidize retraining programs

That's just off the top of my head. I'm sure there's a bunch more stuff that can help ameliorate this situation.
Those things are well thought out, I would add free higher education like what is available in Germany. And much improved health care like the rest of the civilized world.

You sir are a gentleman and a scholar, well put.

A gentleman and a scholar wouldn't wish for the death of anyone.

We don't have the advantage of magic underwear and door-to-door religious sales experience.

Never begin your point with ignorant and baseless rhetoric.

While in general, I agree that wishing death upon or killing anyone should be avoided, are there never any circumstances where killing is morally permissible? Time travel paradoxes, slippery slopes, and butterfly effects aside, would you not go back in time and kill Hitler or Stalin if you could? Or I'm curious how you would handle the trolley scenario.
You had to ask, I pity you. /s
Hope you enjoyed your fictional answers.

Depends on how you're measuring. People that look after themselves (and some with pure luck and medication) are able to live to 120ish. That would definitely make 65 around the middle :-)

This is how the real world is measuring.
There are only 300–450 living supercentenarians in the world. Your probability is .48% of making it to 100. If you are a woman it's 1.66%.

I use a nano polymer teflon encapsulating whitening toothpaste.
Only side effect was my gums disappeared but on the upside I only have to brush once a month.

It's been decades since I was in a public pool, now if I could only say the same for gas station nacho cheese.

My HP laptop does the same thing on popping up with new software bios updates and recommends that they be installed.
And do you install them?

Corporate environment is a different story. I can do a CYA via email to the boss on any update I don't really think is needed, plus I can have a test pool of machines prior to updating large numbers of them.

However, for personal equipment, as far as BIOS updates go, I'll stick with my only "to fix a known problem you were experiencing and with a patch known to work".
If it's for adding support for new cpu's I won't install it because my lappy ain't getting a new cpu.
But if it's for rando stability fixes, cooling fan curve adjustment etc, then yes I install them.
I even had to roll back one that disappeared from the hp site when 10 came out. The older bios helped with 10 but 10 ain't meant for my laptop, and that's another story.

As for my gaming desktop since the chipset/mb/cpu were newly released it definitely went through several bios updates.
