Tesla About To Start Battery-Swap Pilot Program

NEDHead I see a problem here (133 comments)

What happens when one of the little cells gets put in with the pointy part the wrong way? I mean, like, there must be a zillion in each car! Chances are good someone will goof it up, especially in the dark at night. And are all the AAA guys going to keep a bunch next to their gas can?

Bill Gates: Piketty's Attack on Income Inequality Is Right

NEDHead Re:Let me get this right (839 comments)

You give everyone a 'get out of tax free' debit card. Reloads every year with $x value, so for the first $x you pay no tax. You can even set tiers so after $x, then the next $y is at a reduced tax rate, etc. Each card fully resets each year, and is non transferable (photo ID or some such)

Bill Gates: Piketty's Attack on Income Inequality Is Right

NEDHead Re:Let me get this right (839 comments)

If you had read the summary at a minimum, you would have noted that Gates was advocating 1) moving away from a 'labor' tax to a 2) Progressive 'consumption' tax.

It is ok to disagree, but at least disagree with what he actually said.
