I look forward to self-driving cars, I foresee their use reducing fatalities significantly.

I'd love to have a self-driving RV. Imagine the pleasure of reading and sipping your cup of coffee, perhaps even taking a nap, while being driven to your destination, across the country, somewhere in the Rocky Mountains. You could really enjoy the scenery all around you, instead of gazing fixedly at the road and traffic. Of course, if someone bumps into you, for no fault of yours or your car's, you're still going to be in trouble. A self-driving car should monitor all traffic, ahead, behind, and on both sides and alert a driver if things get dangerous. On the other hand, if every vehicle on the road had to be equipped--by law--in car-to-car communications, traffic monitoring and auto-pilot, even this could be prevented.

Someone needs to start a news agency more conducive to internet arguing. Where you can pay a small fee to find out more details about a story to win the internet.

 

I think this could make good money.

I love the look of leather clothes, even if I never buy them!

As in, one long bad experience with a bike/bikes, or was it like a week of people biking?

As in a week in a normally eco-friendly town with motorcyclist. No vegetarian food options and a cranky 10 yr old.

Seriosuly? We went to the town the one week that it happened to be the most non-veg*n-friendly place when it's normally easy to find VEGAN options at restraunts?(yummy!--Love how I'm not even vegan and got all excited about some vegan menu items one restraint had.)

Oh, man! How frustrating! You'd think a town like that would have more vegan options, not less!

YEAH.

I mean if you can walk into a restraint and practically be jumping out of yoru seat because there are actually options then there is no reason for it to be so irritatingly difficult.

But ti's ;ike that one week/year. I just don't eat at those stupid street vendor things.

As for the restraunts.......those vacations always end with me trying food I wouldn't have though to try.(black bean burger! My dad liked it.:)

I pretty much detest "pretty" bright, sunny days. Not going go so far as to say I hate the sun, but usually I see it and cringe.

I hate summer, too. I don't do well at all in the heat - my blood pressure drops if I have to stand in the heat for more than 10-15 minutes.

Just saw a quip on Facebook from someone that celery is considered a "superfood" with magical healing powers.  LMAO.  For some of us it's simply part of our every day diet.  Remember when celery (and other "superfood" fruits and vegetables) was a staple?  You ate it in your salads and soups (some of us still do) or with something in it?  now people are so unfamiliar with fruits and vegetables that when they do discover them it's like this huge deal and they are going to cure everything.  Sad thing is a lot of people only see them as detox foods to be eaten for a week a few times a year and then they go back to the SAD.  It's nice that fruits and vegetables get a little attention here and there but I think labeling them a superfood is a bit over the top and a turnoff for some people.  It's what we are SUPPOSED to be eating anyway!

I'd agree if things were closer together here. We went to a town nearby and could not find cicilization for a while.

We'd see a building

Mom: there! Finally!

Me: Nope, that's barn. Forget it., There's nothing anywhere.

 

Let's just say if I saw one more goat I would have screamed.

goats are cute but when that is the only creature you see for a good 30-50 miles you will start to get irritated. Especially when you're late for something and as lost as a needlle in a haystack.{and no, that is NOT fun to try to find. It's funny to watch your sibling epixally fail at it, though.}

Cool

Farting is great fun and should be encouraged greatly, especially at school where it can bring great mirth and merriment to boring, stale classroom debates. Not enough comedians make use of farty arse humour. There's nothing like releasing a squelchy, rippling thunderbolt, especially if it's in someone's face.

I like cloudy days, dark cloudy days....a warm sunny day walk can be nice, but it can be depressing too.

When I see the clouds coming on the weather, I cheer up.

I think it should maybe be encouraged in the house of commons....add a bit more sophistication to their debates.

Another cloudy day lover here, sun can be nice sometimes but it's too bright and I don't like squinting like a mole person.

I also feel a lot more comfortable in the dark, my favourite part when going to the theatre is when all the lights go down. I'm instantly more relaxed and feel invisible.

I don't like donuts, and pie. Actually, I don't like most baked goods.
