Comment Re:Jail Them (Score 5, Interesting) 99

Srsly, why isn't this considered an acceptable option to this crap? It seems to happen every other month with each party simply refusing to give documents and testimony to investigating committees, then everyone bitches and moans and lets it go.

Why are there not more findings of Contempt of Congress, and why is Contempt of Congress seemingly punished with a slap on the wrist?

Comment I'm not going to RTFA (Score 1) 304

If the summary is even remotely close to what this and is suggesting, then it appears he really thinks that an overabundance of CGI is what makes people indifferent to films, and not the complete dearth of decent storytelling, character development, acting, and direction. I cannot RTFA...if I do I'll spend every 3 sentence griping to myself about what a useless idiot the author is, and how the article is pure tripe...

This would not be good for my mood or my evening. I'll pass.

Comment Re:Tesla Autopilot is comparable to Airline Autopi (Score 1) 392

Yes, which is why pilots have extensive training and planes costs millions of dollars. Neither is true of a tesla or tesla owners.

I'm pretty sure Tesla owners still have to take a drivers test. The "extensive training" a pilot goes under is not about weird magical situations that requires more than normal flight training. Just because my car has "autopilot" doesn't mean I need to undergo some new special drivers training that isn't covered by regular driving schools...the autopilot mode doesn't give the car a complex new control set or somehow change the rules of the road.

Also this has nothing to do with why planes are expensive, not to mention that Teslas aren't cheap.

You're right, as a parent you should also be able to walk in to any home of any neighbor at any time of day and watch them surf the internet as well as check their browsing history. You also should be able to check their bank statements, any other criminal history, as well as have any potential weapons in anyone's home in the nearest square mile registered and available for you to see at any time you feel like it...after all you never know who may be around you...and "as a parent... [your] right to know and to make an informed objection trumps [my] right to anonymity"
