My theory on why Apple would want to make a self driving car.
Apple Car would be more than just a competitor to Google, It would be the beginning of living an Apple branded life.

Trump is an idiot. This problem has nothing to do with immigrants it is a problem with our prison system. >50% of the prisoners are mentally ill people who should not be released 3 times on 3 related crimes. Anyone who gets arrested 3x, Immigrant or not, will more then likely have some sort of mental disability or psychological problem and locking them up doesn't fix that problem and releasing them without treatment is what gets our society in these situations.

The whole political system can be replaced by computers. When everyone has access to the internet then when a vote needs to be taken, it can be taken from the public rather than politicians. 

A computer can find patterns to make maintenance more predictable, You put a road in X days later based on traffic and formulations you will do maintenance on this date. Seems pretty straightforward. The public taking selfies with potholes can help with real time monitoring and adjusting the maintenance date. Budget decisions can be reviewed by communities online.

Then the role of government is to just propose ideas and execute ideas that have been approved, which the idea thing can be done by people who actually have knowledge about the science of things rather than people who only know how to write speeches and take money from lobbyists. Great thing is that the ideas would be reviewed by the public and not other money hungry politicians. And as loud as the small percentage of people who have terrible opinions about things are, they are the rich ones who can afford to advertise, they are not the majority.

"Oh but people are influenced by corporations and computers can be hacked" - Politicians can be bribed and decisions can be lobbied. I trust a well secured computer more than a politician. Also by placing the vote to the public is there can not be any targeted advertising campaigns like when gay marriage was voted on in california and the mormon church invested millions to smash it. The cost to target a random sampling of people across the united states would be way too expensive.

as +TerraRubicon said: "technocracy and participatory economics offer the solution"

Raccoons are so cute! Maybe if they could stay away from the alcohol they wouldn't have to scrounge around the trash for food and spare change ;)

Now the activists behind legalizing pot can protest and move on to LSD. Their lives will not lose meaning.

The lady host is great! Glad to see a woman as a host even if it's a co-host; I think she could probably host her own though.

The up-pitch on some sentences can break my concentration a little (Like the incentives part on schooling). I had the same complaint about one of the (male) hosts of Dnews they ended up replacing that guy but they probably could have just told him to change it :/


From another comment of mine: The episode's jokes are too silly and not dry and monotone like the rest of CC I think that is what makes it cringe-ish. When john green makes a joke he just says it in the same tone and speed as the rest of his speech which is great because it doesn't break a person's concentration but makes them chuckle internally.

I agree that saying "and woman" is a bit off putting for some but they only did it once so I don't get why people are over-reacting about it. I would say just change the quote to "people" or "persons" instead.

Should really say the whole thing instead of DFTBA, Don't forget to be awesome.

Would love to see Underemployment and Min-wage effect on the economy and inflation rate!

I love your videos +Wisecrack 
Two complaints tho:
I feel like the philosophy videos can be a little biased
and the Thug Notes needs guest stars, Like +Hank Green!! That would be interesting :D

Perhaps this is the origin of human imagination? Maybe we have actually recreated how the animal brain sees the world?

You can do it!

I have been logging my food for a few weeks now ( http://www.myfitnesspal.com/food/diary/Rolyataylor2 ) and have lost some weight. I don't have as much to lose ( i have to lose 40lbs ) but it is possible it just takes dedication and patience. Weigh yourself often and chart your progress losing 1-2lb a week is enough to be successful. If you start there you can work up to more per week.

You live up here in the northwest where we have nature trails and beautiful landscapes for inspiration. Take a walk, watch the animals, They know whats up more then we do. They are happy to get a few scraps of food and anywhere to sleep. Thats all that matters.

I have had the same issues you have over the years with Depression/ADD, It takes a lot of self analysis, positive reinforcement, and a lot of internal "f you brain" to get out of depression. For me the trigger was money and social anxiety. With money I started with refining my bills down to a less scary number also I have been at the bottom when I was little and it's not that bad. For social anxiety that still is a bad habit to break. I found saying "yes"  before saying "no" helps, also not making plans... Not the most elegant solution, still working on that one.

What happens to cows when you can grow meat in a lab? Will the domestic cow go extinct? Will farms turn into forest/nature preserves or more likely farm corn and things to feed the lab meat/ lab milk? I think that there will still be problems with lab grown meat, Fertilizer usage will increase, pesticide use. And will lab grown meat require less raw ingredients to grow?

Wonderful Experience at Springwater Dental. Dr Chung and his staff were excellent in the whole process and even with the follow up. Very attentive and understanding staff that helped massively with our dental fears. Can tell the staff cares about building a dedicated patient base by removing those dental fears people have. Had complex oral surgery done to remove impacted teeth and wouldn't have chose a different dentist. My wife had sedation oral surgery done and had no pain or problems and the whole process alleviated a lot of fears she had of dental work in general. Would recommend for anyone who has any reservations about getting work done on their teeth. Thank you Springwater Dental we will see you all for our regular cleanings.

Old school American Chinese Food. Everything is fried and delicious! Great place to spoil yourself after eating healthy all week. Growing up this was the type of food we would get when we went out to eat. You will like this place if you like places like Canton Grill or China Hut (I haven't been to those places in a while though). This is one of the last places that serves this type of chinese food and has large portions. I just wish they delivered, My heart is glad they don't though.

Best teriyaki sauce anywhere. The place is small and doesn't look that great on the inside, but the sauce! Even people who don't like teriyaki like this place for the sauce. Go there, try it! You can buy the sauce separately!
