    [–] Elon Musk Promises a Really Truly Self-Driving Tesla in 2020 - by the end of 2020, he added, it will be so capable, you’ll be able to snooze in the driver seat while it takes you from your parking lot to wherever you’re going. StreetSharksRulz 1 points ago in Futurology

    Honestly as cool as that is in practice, I think people will have a problem with it. Hurtling along at highway speeds while sleeping and no one to make sure things don't go wrong. I love the idea of self driving cars but I don't think I could be comfortable sleeping knowing that one quick turn of the wheel in the wrong direction could kill me and there's absolutely no one awake to stop it.

    [–] Mueller investigation: Trump Russia report ‘could be delivered to Congress next week’ StreetSharksRulz 3 points ago in worldnews

    I don't know, I'm pretty sure they know the public would go fucking APESHIT if that was the case. This thing has been going on for nearly two fucking years with both sides thinking it's either going to prove Trump is Satan himself or that he's the world's most innocent man.

    [–] Trump administration launches global effort to end criminalization of homosexuality StreetSharksRulz -2 points ago in worldnews

    The U.S. is actually pretty good with gay rights. The majority of the country actually was right on line with most of the western world in gay rights (slower than some, faster than others +/- 10 years).

    That's incorrect. The EEOC made several rulings where the civil Rights act was said to cover sexual orientation. It's been tested in court several times now and they ruled in favor of the EEOCs position each time.

    TL;DR Yes, the u.s. bans discrimination based on sexual orientation.

    [–] The Netherlands won’t take back IS fighters, despite Trump’s call. StreetSharksRulz 1 points ago in worldnews

    Are you seriously confused why someone from ISIS is being detained? Sorry, if your citizens join a group that's literally raping and beheading men, women and children while filming it and they get caught it's either the responsibility of the country that they're caught in and who's people they were murdering or the country they're from to handle them. In this case the Netherlands wants to have their cake and eat it too.

    "We don't want these insane murderous zealots back in our country because that's a dangerous pain in the ass"

    "Fine we'll give them to the local government"

    "No, they believe in capital punishment which we think is wrong so you have to keep em"

    Sorry, either step up and take responsibility for your citizens joining one of the worst terrorist groups in modern history or let the people that they've been victimizing deal with them. It's this bullshit where they want to take the high ground but don't want to be responsible for the risks and trouble that goes with it.

    Typical attitude. Let everyone else deal with the messy situations while taking the "high road". There's northern Europe for ya.

    That's not exactly true. They can't deny someone service if they're a protected class. The issue was they wanted a message for their gay wedding which is essentially forcing them to say/write something they don't believe in. It's a free speech issue. While I don't agree with the owners and I'd be 100% ok with a boycott and them being run out of business it's one of those things that you tolerate (like batshit crazy fringe groups) so that the government doesn't intervene in free speech.

    [–] Iran's Zarif accuses Israel, U.S. of seeking war StreetSharksRulz 4 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in news

    "kidnapped a soldier"

    You mean when they fired rockets into civilian towns as a cover for firing anti tank rockets at Israeli vehicles and then kidnapped someone on the Israel side?

    Kinda sounds like firing rockets at civilians, blowing up military vehicles in Israel and then kidnapping started the war.

    Fun fact: when you try to blow up a country's civilians and military and kidnap their people that's an act of war

    [–] Nikki Haley couldn't keep a Chinese official out of a key UN job, and it's a sign the US is losing important influence StreetSharksRulz 0 points ago in worldnews

    The U.S. poverty level is on par with many other western nation's like the U.K. or Canada.

    This idea that the Chinese who have been historically brutal to anyone who opposed them, killing millions upon millions of people are somehow going to go "oh, go about your day" once they can actually have the power to exert military force is childish.

    But let's go ahead and take a look at the atrocities of the U.S. vs. China. How about when they overthrew communist leaders during the cold war? That ended with them fighting each other in some cases and thousands of deaths. During that same time frame China killed 45 million people. That's more deaths than the Soviets, Germans, Americans, french, Japanese, and Britain combined. How about Tibet? There's another 100-400,000 dead. Let's get more modern. Tiananam square, up to 10,000 killed. How about thousands executed every year? Organ harvesting political prisoners, a million person concentration camp, forced biometrics scans, government censorship and surveillance, bombarding Taiwan, or black jails.

    That's without even touching on the total lack of freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of association, or freedom of religion.

    Honestly question, why don't you think China has taken Taiwan by force or started expanding into other countries and stripping away human rights? Why do you think they have been trying to water down their image at all? It's probably not because they're super nice people.

    This idea that "who cares they're both bad" makes me feel like people are taking stupid pills.

    [–] Nikki Haley couldn't keep a Chinese official out of a key UN job, and it's a sign the US is losing important influence StreetSharksRulz 0 points ago in worldnews

    It's really not. If they're willing to kill, torture and imprison thousands of their own people for free speech what do you think they'll do with other people?

    It's this absurd notion of "oh look they haven't attacked anyone else!" (Forgetting Tibet and Taiwan) surely they aren't that bad! Nope, they are that bad they list CANT impose their censorship and draconian culture on anyone else because of the U.S.

    Yep, how could we pick such a poor leader it's not like your country's president took a $100M bribe from a serial killer.

    Ya know what, let's do a test. Go ahead and fly over to China and start posting some negative stuff about them, see how that goes.
