Kids With Wheels: Should the Unlicensed Be Allowed To 'Drive' Autonomous Cars?

Karganeth Re:Well, of course. (437 comments)

What a great argument. Something going potentially wrong is a great reason to ban that thing outright. That's why they banned six year olds from walking around - they could potentially fall down and serverely harm themselves in the process. LEARN WHEN PRINCIPLES MATTER. You need statistics. Not principles to win your argument.

Karganeth Re:Business is business (264 comments)

Your hand waving abilities are not as strong as you think. It's not reasonable to expect such behaviour. Regardless, it's not acceptable and that's what matters. I agree that acting shocked isn't going to help anyone's cause but something should be done to stop the NSA from being out of control.
