Oh boy...

Just an attempt at some morbid humor....shoot me. Come on, it's a hypothetical situation of technology going so far that it would safely deliver a person to the front door but failing at the same time.

My humor sucks...I know

Ofcourse I would not laugh when my grandma turned up dead.

Peace

What I wrote = grim

Check

How would I feel if granny caused 5 deaths in motorway accident = I would not laugh

Check

Was there a double layer in your post I did not pick up? I am known for that...

Get back to me on that if it was really important.

Peace

Something needs to be done about push-button start cars. The problem is, you can exit the vehicle with keys in hand and leave the car running. The sound is barely noticable, especially if you have more ambient noise around.
Key fob should beep loudly if it gets a certain distance from the car without being acknowledged. Besides houses, cars (and garages themselves) should have carbon monoxide detectors.

ETA: I sell cars for a living. I sell around 10-15 keyless on a monthly basis. Practically the only customers who don't miss turning the car off after a test drive are those who have had another keyless vehicle for awhile. After 40 years of grabbing your keys after shutting off the engine, the brain skips to "if I have keys in hand, engine is off." Took my a month to stop forgetting to shut them off myself. Try it with 2 kids and a dog causing chaos as you prepare to exit.

I think you're in the walking disaster Darwin Potential minority, to be honest. Our keyless is my husband's first at nearly 50 after decades of key cars, and he's never screwed up punching the button off before getting out, no matter how frazzled or tired. I don't drive (yet -- it's coming, this car will be mine in a few years when we add a second car to the household) but even I can't get out without double checking he's shut it off, so I doubt I'd screw up in that seat myself.

And the car itself makes a ton of chirping beeping noise if you get OUT without turning it off, such as to keep it running to warm while you scrape the windows clear/brush the snow off in winter. Now granted, that might just be the Nissans that nag like that (you tell me, you sell cars) but I find it hard to believe you wouldn't notice it yelling at you getting a foot out the door.

Huh, considering that there are nearly 8 billion human beings living on this earth at this moment in time, it's only natural for there being a lot of dumb people, no? I don't understand what you mean by technology making life harder than easier? How exactly could that be?

You're using the computer and the internet, aren't you? when you were young they probably didn't have eletricity running in your backwater state, and you're still alive aren't you? Somehow all of the new tech hasn't done your life any harm. To some? Sure. but the majority ain't suffering from it.

And after reading your nearly un-coherent post(early onset of Alzheimer?) I'm left wondering why you're now talking about technological advances in porn? Like, you think the United States population is going to vanish because some guys are going to be whacking off to porn or something?
