public transport opinion
Okay self-driving cars seem like a really good idea, but I don't think they're ready to use on the open roads yet. I'd suggest keeping them on a fixed route where no other vehicles can go to minimize risk of collision.
We should probably have fixed places where people can get on and off. The cars come in, open their doors, let people enter and exit, and then continue on their journey.
Speaking of which, we should probably also make them larger to increase efficiency and again, to minimize risk of accidents.
We could even couple several of them together into one combined vehicle.
And since they're only going on a fixed route anyway, it makes more sense to use steel wheels on steel rails instead of rubber on asphalt.
I know it's an outlandish concept, but I'm convinced it might work really well if we ever get to try it out on a large scale
SC Tech Working Group meeting today - 1930 UTC
It's time again for a tech working group meeting! Today at 1930 UTC. All are welcome to join - bring questions, ideas, or a burning desire to contribute.
Agenda is here, but I'm pretty sure I've forgotten one of the new business items I'd meant to add. So if you notice something missing, please add it.
Call link is inside the agenda doc. See y'all in a little while!
this is the first time we’ve actually seen the bears display an interest in the chickens and/or their food… not great lol
police, white supremacy, philosophy
In "The Avant-Garde of White Supremacy," Steve Martinot & Jared Sexton argue that through impunity & spectacular violence, "the police become a law onto themselves." This, in turn infects all governmental structures which, "act in accordance with the paradigm of policing--wanton violence legitimised by strict conformity to procedural regulations" (171).
got my brain in a loop where i whistle the little intro stinger from pac-man, and when it’s done i start quietly saying “waka-waka-waka-waka”
i shake my head at the goofiness and stop, but a minute later i do it again
do y’all think i can fix this with a reboot or do i need to reset to factory defaults?
