khr Tapes. (65 comments)

the renderings (read "storyboards, not blueprints," but they're also called "plans,"

What about "tapes"? Though I'm surprised they're not more secret, so they won't fall into the wrong hands.

And is there any sort of contingency in case someone steals them?

Hundreds of Thousands Turn Out For People's Climate March In New York City

khr Caught in it... (200 comments)

Yikes! We ran into that by accident yesterday... The terminal point of the march was right by the north-most exit from the High Line park at 34th Street that just opened yesterday, too, which I wanted to check out.

It was insane! And we had to walk a few blocks opposite the direction of the march to get home... I thought we'd get trampled before we found a cross street (41st Street) that wasn't so jam packed we could get off the main route.

Being short, I didn't get many good photos from it as most of them are of peoples' backs that I couldn't see over.

Developing the First Law of Robotics

khr Re:So, he's a crappy programmer... (165 comments)

This is certainly not news for nerds. But seems it is news for non-nerds

Well, it gets a bit nerdier if you figure this is much like Wesley Crusher's psych test to get into Star Fleet Academy... He had to go into a room with two "victims" and rescue one so they could make sure he wouldn't freeze and fail to rescue anyone.

And that is "stuff that matter"

Well, that's a bit harder to argue with...

Developing the First Law of Robotics

khr Re:That's interesting data but.... (165 comments)

Well, there you go... It's harder to replace a middle-aged parent with much more life experience than a teenager who can be replaced easier. The parents of the MILF are probably old enough they can't replace her, but the teenager's parents are more likely to be capable of replacing the teenager, so you value them that way.

Note, I'm middle-aged and I hate children and don't have any and don't understand why parents seem so attached to young kids.

But if there was some PSA at the beginning of the video, wouldn't people simply edit it to chop that off, then redistribute it?

Then it would accomplish little.

My home town only has one traffic light (and didn't get a left turn lane until after I moved away). I wonder what sort of damage hackers could do with that... Chaos where US 101 meets highway 34....

Your Phone Can Be Snooped On Using Its Gyroscope
