  1. How does your avatar look today ?

    The "If it moves and shouldn't, duct tape it. If it doesn't move and should, WD40 it." advice reminds me of an old US Navy adage Dad taught me... If it moves, salute it. If it doesn't, paint it.

    Milwaukee's near south side is heavily hispanic. A few weeks before that photo was taken, a 62 year old hispanic man was killed by a speeding car while crossing the street in school zone in that neighborhood. Nearly half of Wisconsin's pedestrian fatalities occur in Milwaukee, predominantly in low income neighborhoods. Guns aren't the only danger in Milwaukee.

  14. CHEATING(?)

    Have you no empathy for those who have no empathy? I can imagine a day when some computers will show more empathy than some people, and challenge your definition of human. Here's a li'l article about machine empathy... https://phys.org/news/2015-11-empathic-robots.html The author of that article doesn't stand the ground she claims in the title. By the end of it she states "It may be, for example, that "near enough is good enough" when it comes to everyday empathy between human and machine." And here's an article describing the utility of algorithms in mental therapy, requiring no empathy at all... https://psychcentral.com/lib/computerized-therapy-will-your-next-therapist-be-a-computer/ People have become addicted to computer games. It's no leap to imagine them becoming addicted to computer therapists... or sex robots. Or other people... https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/in-the-name-love/201405/is-love-addiction ;-).
