  4. If last mile shipping is so expensive and difficult to manage, why then does UPS not offer an option to schedule parcel pick up times at their carrier facilities? Really, why can't I do that? Customers already paid to have it delivered last mile, so why not allow it?

  8. Why was I ever optimistic about autonomous vehicles if we can't even expect people to be capable of using and feeling cruise control?

    • @oracle Using and feeling comfortable with, sorry. I know a few people who feel that cruise control s dangerous and takes control away from them. I was hopeful that younger people would be more open to the idea, but many of my classmates are strongly opposed to the idea.

    • My honest opinion is that the general public should not be instructed with ability to drive, or at the very least, the privilege should require stricter testing standards. People (humans as a whole) are not as intelligent as we perceive ourselves to be. We are stupid, dull, prideful, creatures that make terrible judgments at the expense of all others.

    • @oracle I definitely think the standards for piloting a kinetic bombardment device through populated areas should be more stringent, as well.

    • @oracle Yeah, and I usually do OK with them, I guess, lately... But today hit too hard and fast to even try, I was at 98% and tunnel-visioning and I just absolutely HAVE to get this done RIGHT NOW because otherwise I am a GORRAM QUITTER and WHAT WOULD MY MOTHER THINK... :-/ Still working at it. I have a small sand timer for periodic meditative breaks. But none of that makes the office less of a constant and absolute press, none of it actually fixes the problem, all of it starts feeling like a complete waste of time, and sometimes even trying to relax feeds the rage.

    • @adiwan I’m settting up my standing workstation by vesa mounting 3 monitors to the wall. Having a programming job has been the worst for my health. I try to make up for it with cycling ........... and I just realized I’ve become a stereotypical ~40 white guy. (I’m only 21 :( )

    • @oracle I'm not a fan of a standing desk. I was offered one with an electrically adjustable plate but I rejected that. Also if I had one I couldn't use that because the whiteboard is right next to my desk. The whiteboard would interfere when raising the desk. Besides that all the cables are too short.
