200kg is nothing, that's like 7-8 large boxes you use when moving house. Paper is heavy!!

sounds like he's just looking for something to get out of life. Many people do stupid things to a higher degree with no purpose. i.e BASE jumping or trying to beat some insane record like deep diving... Not crazy, just depressed would be a better description.

Morning sickness is an illness? really? Isn't it a symptom of a hormonal change or balance? That would make periods an illness and probably hangovers.... Is growing pains an illness or perhaps cramps when you run? Dizziness from sitting down too long or pins and needles? Hmmm

sounds like something a rich nut would do in the Middle Ages. Regardless of the legalities, his motives are just stupid. It would be far easier and cheaper to pay people off. Plus there are no guarantee that his kids would vote for this sicko dad. Just imagine the paperwork if he had 600 kids. The names, the lawyers, the tax, the daddy phone calls, education, inheritance, etc.....

nope, things have finally caught up to my expectations, but still a long way to go. When I can create a computer program by just telling the computer to create the program via voice commands then things will be where it should be.
Posted in: Are you old enough to remember a time when there were no cell phones, no email, no Internet and no way to keep you connected to the world 24 hours a day? If so, do you sometimes think back on that time fondly?

depends on how you categorize safe. If it includes petty theft, rape, cyber crime, bullying, harassment, child abuse, public transport accidents and going further into natural causes like earthquakes, floods and typhoons then I would have to say it is not any safer than 10 years ago. Additionally, more people means more problems, so China & India are not having a particularly good time.

I had a full 45 sec warning on my "The Last 10-Second" app. http://weathernews.jp/quake/html/urgentquake.html
If you add another app it will speak out the location, size, time to impact and if it is worthy of a tsunami warning.

pretty simple, if the automaker is the one selling the point of driverless and that it's safe then guess who would take the blame. Since the automakers would never say that in the small print for the next decade or so, it will mean a driver has to be in the seat at all times and paying attention to the road. That means nothing actually changes to the law today until it's the car (software) which overrides the driver and slams into another car. Now, will any of you trust your life to a car and feel comfortable enough to go to sleep?
Posted in: Some automakers are working with tech companies to develop driverless cars, but legal liability for accidents remains vague. In the event of an accident involving a driverless car, who do you think should be liable?

so, it you forked out 100,000yen for a ticket on Yahoo Auction or something I assume you only get back the face value of the ticket and can't hold onto the seat number for a future gig. That's got to suck if you happen to have a good seat.
