I hate to be that guy, but I'm glad someone is dead from this stupid ass idea. I'm sorry that it had to be you, Joshua Brown, 40 of Canton, Ohio. But maybe some good can come out of this. Now maybe you can be the Jesus Christ of self driving cars, because I hate the idea of self-driving cars. You may have died but if it can kill this awful idea too, then you did not die in vain.
Don't get me wrong, the idea of a self-driving car is pretty sweet, so is the idea that there are robots that you can have sex with. It doesn't mean it should happen. Some ideas are just better left off as ideas. I'm sure one day, if not now, we'll have the technology for it, but right now it's an awful idea.
We don't need robots taking the roles of humans. People already complain enough about immigrants and other people taking jobs. Now we're gonna have to compete against robots too? FUCK THAT. So are cabs/lyft. ubers, school buses, tractor trailers, and modes public transportation going to be self driving robot cars too? When I'm 30 are there gonna be no humans behind the wheel? I HATE this idea. I actually enjoy driving I don't want some nerdy fucking robot doing it for me. I may not be much of a man but I am a man, I'm gonna fucking drive.
Plus with all the virtual reality bullshit gaining steam this year, it's like 2016 is the year of the Robot. Chinese restaurants are gonna have to edit their place-mats. I'm OUT on robots taking over the world. Nope not if I can do anything about it. It's gonna be like a G-damn movie where the robots get self aware and take over the world. How can people not see this?
And like I love technology too, trust me, I love my iPad more than most of my extended family members (and my iPad is two years old and cracked). But I think it's getting a little bit too extreme, people my age are wayyyyyy toooooooo dependent on technology. Nobody knows anything, you just google it. Nobody has any social skills, it's probably why like 1-60 kids are autistic now because nobody knows how to fucking interact with other humans. I'm a perfect example of that, I can talk to any girl on tinder, but you put one in front of me in real life and I piss my pants. It's really sad.
We don't need self driving cars. We don't need robot lovers. We don't to play virtual reality baseball. Go outside and talk to someone, play a game outside. Again, I get it the idea is pretty cool. You can have basically your own personal limo driver and you can get trashed or whatever but how about just getting an uber or a friend to DD? Where does the line get drawn? Are we gonna have robot barbers and robot teachers? Yeah maybe those are two completely different fields but I don't want a robot for either of them. Let's unplug just a little bit. Again I LOVE modern technology, and use it all the time, but there are somethings we're trying to achieve that just don't need to be invented. I hate to sound like that guy but for real why don't we use the money we fund for stupid, lavish technology and try to cure cancer, als and Alzheimer's instead?
