    • thunderlips11 says Also, when the robot tries to take the ketchup packets out of the bin and there are no more, and nobody programmed it to drive 10 feet to the left, make right turn, 12.5 feet forward, turn 180 agrees, turn the lever just so, look on the 3rd shelf, 6 inches from the right, obtain the box, open the box, bring the open box to the counter, and empty the box into the bin on the second shelf under the register, it will reach down to the second shelf, right hand bin and hand out empty air to customers and say "Here is your ketchup... thank you for your business!" If it was programmed to do that, and no human placed the box of ketchup packets on the 3rd shelf, 6" from the right in the pantry, even though 6 boxes of it were stacked right outside the pantry door with "KETCHUP PACKETS" in huge font, boldfaced, it still couldn't bring the ketchup. Even the retard employee would figure that out. If robots were cost-effective, functional, or efficient, there wouldn't be any McD's employees in Denmark, Switzerland, or Australia....
    • New Renter says mmmarvel says thunderlips11 says Robots are great when energy is cheap. It will take a while before energy (i.e. electricity) reaches $15 an hour. Even then an air puppet doesn't' take breaks, require health care or lose a smile. Of course the air puppet can't go out and buy a Slurpee. And someone else's air puppets can't buy whatever this air puppet's boss is selling. So economically its a dead end....

        • bob2356 says BayAreaObserver says You keep saying drug prices, treatments etc. are much less expensive in many parts of the world on any basis. So cough up the list of "many" places along with per capita income, cost of living, wages, taxes, etc. and see how it looks then. In NZ and Australia I paid less in taxes than the US. I paid zero for health insurance, it's public health care. I paid $10-15 for a primary care doctor visit depending on the doctor. Prescriptions ran $1-5 depending on the drug. That's retail price, I did not have a prescription plan since they don't exist. Prescriptions for children under 18 are always free. Seeing a specialist (I saw several specialists over the years) was $0, they are salaried employees. Hospital stays (note the plural) were $0, they are government owned. When I had to go to a regional center for specialized testing the health board paid my airfare, room, taxi, and airport parking. Paperwork for a hospital stay? They asked me for my name and birthdate at the checkin. That's it. Would you consider that less expensive than the US with looking at per capita income, wages, taxes, etc.? I certainly do. It did and still does look really really good. Especially since I'm back in the US paying full boat US taxes and health care costs for a family of 4. I had the similar types of prices and experiences living in europe, it's not an outlier by any stretch of the imagination. Sorry, but I'm not going through each public health system one by one. I know how most of them work and what they cost. If you want to know then go read up on them yourself. Cough up the list of places where health care is more expensive than the USA....
        • bob2356 says BayAreaObserver says bob2356 says What if we spend trillions and all we find out is it can't work? Humans have been spending close to that if not more on wars and that isn't working out so well. Why not give something else a shot ? Please explain why we were able to eradicate polio, measles for all intents and purposes in this country but not much since then. Sorry, if you can't or won't understand the differences between bacteria/virus illness and chronic/genetic illness than I can't begin to explain it to you....
        • Ironman says BayAreaObserver says But there are some potentially valuable drugs we’ll never get drug companies to invest in — those that cannot be patented. By granting temporary monopolies to innovators, the patent system is widely credited with protecting and promoting innovation. But when it comes to pharmaceuticals, it may be preventing valuable therapies from coming to market. If you knew what the total costs to pharma companies was to bring a new drug to market and get FDA approval, you wouldn't be asking these type of questions....

          • Strategist says tovarichpeter says Sometimes people just want an affordable apartment. We have a simple solution.....high speed rail. It's not the distance, but the time that matters. Connecting Sacramento, San Francisco, LA, Phoenix and Las Vegas. San Francisco to Sacramento is 88 miles. A 40 minute ride is all it takes. Millions of people would be able to move to affordable housing, and Bay Area home prices would fall because of the reduced demand. Freeways and cars is what brought the suburbs close to the city, now high speed rail can bring low cost cities close to the high cost cities....

            • Dan8267 says The Benghazi committee's top Democrat, Maryland Representative Elijah Cummings, said in a Wednesday statement that McCarthy had simply acknowledged what “Republicans never dared admit in public.” He added that Republicans “have blatantly abused their authority in Congress” by spending more than $4.5 million in taxpayer funds on the Benghazi committee “to pay for a political campaign against Hillary Clinton.” One, the Republicans should have to pay this money back. Seize their assets. Two, those Republicans should get a minimum of 40 years in prison for this theft. That's just one year per $100,000. Quite reasonable....
