Sci/Tech Google's self-guided car could drive the next wave of unemployment

No one died. The first time the guy ran into the side of me and fell across the hood. The second time I don't really know what the fuck happened but he ended up breaking my passenger window. Third one someone just ran into the back of me when I was stopped, didn't really do anything. The fourth time he merged into me on the highway... that one was bad, I thought he died. Then he popped right back up and was like sorry dude, I didn't see you. A lot of people run into me for some reason...

Maybe you should consider to ride on the correct lane next time?
Would help you at least with that problem.

I ride a motor bike and am so scared of this concept... I hope it sees motorbikers more than normal drivers do. It's bad enough as it is...
The google cars have 360 degree vision. Unlike a human, they don't have a blind spot. Also, for a computer the driving speed doesn't matter at all. If it can see a human while driving 10km/h it can see a motor bike while driving at 110km/h.

What if it becomes self aware and starts racing people?
Then we can hunt them down and have invented a new sport. It will become a great game beloved by everyone around the world and the most famous google-car-hunters will be hailed like super stars.
Hungry families in africa will be fed with the prey "animals" and the notion of killing helpless cars will unite the entire mankind to a brotherhood of peace.

I'm Just wondering what the self-guided car would do. Well, If there's no way to turn round etc... The same thing with the Mouse or Bigger animals. hmmm
probably the best thing that it can do, honk, brake, and turn away - not much more you can do about that.. except maybe dim the headlights for deer

Maybe. But many other vehicles can be on the road even behind you.. Well, there is no room whatsoever for anything not even for a self-guided car. Right?

another car behind, that would instantly be alerted to the braking of the first car, and brake themselves? yes, that sounds about right - also, these cars wouldn't speed in neighborhoods/school zones, so braking from 25 mph or so would only take a second (yes it might not be pleasant for those within the car.. )

    I have a GIF though

    In the GIF, I've configured it so the lower the "Main Value" is, the better. I had to compress it pretty far down though.

    Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What do we do with the Home page?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I added those forums to the filter for that widget.

    Oh nice. They're back. Thanks.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Now I think it makes more sense for me to put news in their own subforums, without worry.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome Ghan thanks! I was purposely not moving the first 15 news articles in Headline news to the different subforums but I guess I don't have to do that now?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you move a thread please leave a permanent redirect. You can delete any redirects after 6 months. The redirects are left to help Search Engines find the moved content.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think that works but I have not messed with it. You can delete redirects though if you have to that will not delete the original thread
  • The Helper The Helper:
    if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.
