One of Google's self-driving cars kissed a bus on Valentine's day, marking the first accident in which the one of the company's autonomous vehicles was at least partly at fault. Possibly too smart for its own good, the self-driving car was attempting to reenter its previous lane when it contacted a municipal bus. The car had pulled over in preparation for a right turn, but came to a stop when it detected sandbags near a storm drain at the intersection, according to Google.

The first rule of being on the road - according to my parents when I first learned to ride a bike - was: "Treat every other vehicle on the road like an idiot out to get you".

I think self-driving cars need to understand that not every human driver is capable of choosing from multiple decisions when you have only a three second gap to do what is correct.

Basically: "What the hell? No way fella. Oh crap, you did. You moron." - There is your human three seconds of thought.

Given the spread of the Covid-19 Delta variant, if my employer requires me to return to the company's location in 2021, I will...
Agree because I'm fully vaccinated.
Agree if the company institutes a mandatory mask requirement and other safety protocols.
Comply reluctantly, because I can't afford to lose my job, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job I feel is safer.
Resign because I'm not vaccinated and don't want to risk infection to myself or others.
