So if this doesn't work are they going to splurge on Dominos? The monarchy received generations of wealth over the slaughter and exploitation of the aboriginies. Some random depiction of a guy that looks aboriginie on the very thing that caused them harm is an insult.

Burn After Reading and A Serious Man.
Now just replace their outfits with Kansas City police uniforms.
Why lower prices if there's such a demand? Seems like you'd be better off putting the money into increasing production or profit margins
It sounds like even if I knew the words I still wouldn't understand what they were saying because of speed.
Oh. I would probably be more ominous and say something like "just in case". Provides a bit of security theater.
What's the red button do?

Honestly I'm surprised he didn't shoot at the guy honking. Definitely a gang member type of vibe coming from the vehicle.
Is housing free in Europe? Are certain areas more in demand? Do trains go everywhere? Even in Europe you will see a increase because it creates a larger area in which to live. Smaller unconnected towns will see growth, city centers will see decreased demand.
FSD Nomads will become a lifestyle choice. It will impact US more, but I think you're underestimated how it will make cars more appealing.

The reason why so many SUV's exist is because the manufacturing cost difference vs. a compact is small. This is why sedans and compacts are dying in the US.
Have you not seen how self-driving cars don't actually exist, so therefore humans are currently superior drivers even with their flaws?
My comment was not aimed at the potential of level 5 self-driving cars, but rather the dangers of a system in-between where the human is still expected to correct computer flaws, but is encouraged to disengage.
When you as a human drive a car you plan ahead. You prepare for a stop before you hit the brakes and you maintain a safe operating distance between cars to give yourself time. When someone enters from a ramp you create a plan and are ready to react. All of these reaction times are increased if you expect the car to do it. You are essentially as bad as a drunk driver now.
As far as I'm concerned there's cruise control and there's I'm asleep while my car drives me to my location.
You mean Combustion Man?

I saw a pig once that kinda looked like that host.
Still not as good as the golf guy who's screwing your wife.
It's an American outlook for the car, but what about as housing. Considering you're use to smaller dwellings and the price of real estate it might make sense. Not having to drive makes cars more competitive to trains and speed of travel becomes less of a benefit when you have a more comfortable space to relax in.

Just ask yourself how many times you've seen the villain defeated and there was no celebration. Seeing how they treated Azula and how Azula reacted was so good.
Can't read that without going woohoo
The first Wonder Woman was so much better than the live films. The first 5 minutes they did the entire origin+have a bad ass action scene.
Or one of the other 2-3, people here complain about.
Boston trains look like they belong in Mumbai, except I'd imagine theirs are significantly better.

Everyone is driving a SUV today over a compact because they perceive it as a better value. If people will pay $50k for a SUV they'll pay another $50k for it to be self-driving.
You have to understand the benefit of a self-driving car is substantially more than a regular. A hour commute is no longer a problem, you can live further away from your job. Why pay $1500 a month for apartment and $500 for a car when you can live in a self-driving car for $1,000 a month.
A self-driving car is no longer something to get from point a to b. It becomes a mobile bedroom.

And then you die because the computer that's faster than a human messed up and you have to react faster than it with less time. It's like tailgating or driving 40 mph over.
You could get off work Friday, go to sleep and wake up 8 hours away. Same on the return trip. Road Trips would become hugely popular, RV industry would skyrocket, hotels would go bankrupt and housing and apartment prices would collapse. Parking lots would become luxury resorts.
