@AbstractCode If we’re going down that path, then surely the solidarity would be expressed from elsewhere.

@aDB Well as you can imagine, I’ve thought through every aspect of this proposal in great detail… So, no, it’ll be a robot pig. With a flag.

via TweetDeck in reply to aDB

@ivovic No no, it’s good. At least you think about stuff rather than being a reflex-action tribalist.

via TweetDeck in reply to ivovic

@ivovic I’d guessed that. I’m seeing a lot of stuff from all the points of view, and it gets a bit tedious.

When all the cars are self-driving, does that mean anyone wanting to drive their own car has to have a robot walk in front with a red flag?

@NicholasFryer Haven’t spoken with him in years. He’s cool, and apparently a great dad. But my mother and I are… “estranged” is the word.

@franksting @GordyPls @jplonie That makes sense. They spend a lot of time together, and peer pressure works for good evolutionary reasons.

@NicholasFryer He’s doing OK, he is. Also, makeup artists can work wonders. Even on me in five minutes for @BreakfastNews.

@NicholasFryer True. I remember by brother was married at 19 and had three kids in about not many years.

@GordyPls Cool. I gather, as a non-parent, that most kids are curious about how things work but don’t get judgemental until taught.

I’m sure it’s not the least bit significant that the car was being driven by my mother. Not at all.

Earlier in the dream, a car was parked badly, driving over six little kids playing at the kerbside, killing three immediately…
