commented on Self-Checkout Machines and the Existential Status of the Worker
I'm sorry but I much prefer self-checking out. When barcodes were first introduced I thought then that I could easily do that myself. I can put my groceries, or whatever, in the order that I want to bag them. Plus I don't have to deal with a person who hates their job in the first place. We're my grocery store to eliminate self-checkout I'd go to another store.

Have you ever thought of hypnosis? It can be done recreationally. You might want to check out hypnotising.org
, a British-based web site for recreational hypnotists and hypnotees but has many, many US members.

The guy in the Cadillac ad is hot...especially when he switches into a suit'n'tie.
I do own a Chevy Volt and congratulate the ELR buyers who will experience the sweetness of electric drive.

commented on Seattle Mayor Ed Murray: "We Should Explore a Municipal Broadband Solution"
I live in Minneapolis. We have a city-wide WiFi system that the City developed with USI Wireless. There are WiFi stations on the telephone poles throughout the city so the entire city is covered. The police have access to the internet wherever they go. Individual and corporate users pay a low monthly fee which sustains the system and, I believe, winds up that it costs the City nothing. Each user needs either a WiFi receiving station or a USB thingy to attach to the network. But, in city parks, the service not only doesn't need either of these, it's also available to non-subscribers. Something for a Stranger person to tell Seattle about, maybe?

commented on Have E-Books Hit a Ceiling?
I've given up reading paper books; they're so hard to hold on to. Curling up with my iPad is much more rewarding than juggling a book.
