Nissan Plans To Sell Self-Driving Cars By 2020

abuelos84 Yes, but not really. well.. yeah, what the hell... (333 comments)

The geek/nerd/awe-seeker inside me loves the idea, but I don't know if we are (from a socio-economic pov) ready for mass-scale implementation of this kind of tech. (with this I mean technologies that automate some form of work)
Don't get me wrong, I really want us to be there, but we aren't.

Our current socioec. model doesn't cope well with abrupt changes in employment, we live in a survival race, a mostly well-mannered jungle law. There are lots of measures we could take to alleviate this but I don't see our beloved representatives caring much unless shtf, and we already know "s" never really "htf".

As per usual, science and technology don't give a flying fuck about all this nonsense and changes will come.

Oh well, you never know.

Egyptian Security Forces Storm Pro-Morsi Camps Leaving Nearly 100 Dead

abuelos84 Re:Maybe overturning an election (381 comments)

Uhm, Venezuela?
Like the country where the oposition was funded and coordinated from the US embassy?
Where they tried a coup, WHICH WAS RECOGNIZED AND PRAISED BY THE US like 5 minutes after they took (for a while) the presidential office?
Do we live in the same world?

Egyptian Security Forces Storm Pro-Morsi Camps Leaving Nearly 100 Dead

abuelos84 Re:Maybe overturning an election (381 comments)

Well, the US could have just not backed the sociopathic military that for example ruled my country for decades (Argentina) killing tens of thousands...
Or more in the new millenium, Venezuela, Honduras, etc....
I'm not saying the rest of the world is pure angelic blowjobs, the soviets did some awful stuff quite similar to what you did to us...
But that doesn't change the fact that your govt conspired with military groups to commit crimes against humanity. Over and over...

Second SFO Disaster Avoided Seconds Before Crash

abuelos84 SFOFTF (248 comments)

I like how the title/summary assumes you know what the fuck SFO means.... (Google says it's San Francisco Airport, good, it wasn't that hard, shouldn't be that hard to just add the "(San Francisco Airport)" to the summary)
Proper journalism, where art thou!? (Yeah, I know...)

Planescape: Torment succesor funded in 6 hours

abuelos84 abuelos84 writes  |  about a year ago

abuelos84 (1340505) writes "Just a few hours after the Kickstarter project was opened to the public, Torment: Tides of Numenera, succesor of the legendary Planescape:Torment, had been funded.
In the dev's own words:
"Our heads are still spinning at the incredible response we have had from today's support of our Kickstarter campaign. We had plans to roll out our stretch goals and to write our Kickstarter updates but never in our wildest dreams did we think we would fund this quickly!!! We are joyfully scrambling right now to get a longer update and some stretch goals in front of you as soon as we can. We should have more to say later today.""
