Human will lose their jobs due by robot? » Post #76

Well yep, that is what robots are going to amount to. People say they are only as intelligent
as you make them but they can most probable be made to gain intelligence. Just like a person
uses process of elimination to do something. If you install all the ways to do something and
even bits and pieces of possibilities, the robot can take all that information to present even
more outcomes than a human can.

Then some other guy wrote one that was twice as fast. I can't remember his name now, he also wrote the shoot 'em up called Momentum.

Edit - Mallard, that was it. That's why I couldn't remember his name, he only used a nickname.

I did an entire box of floppys and put them in a safe deposit box. I thought if something ever
happen, at least my children would have all the photos, safe and sound on floppys.

I know it was some bit of a learning curve to get them on there and I cannot remember how I did it.
I do remember laying the photos out on the table, about 5 or so at a time. Maybe I scanned them
from a printer but that does not seem like what I did but guess so. Anyway, I recall finally being
able to do it and being amazed that it worked. But you couldn't look at one photo at a time, it was
several because of the way I scanned them or something....several at a time.

And.....my computer.......it was HUGE. HaHa! The monitor was HUGE! It was a big heavy thing.

I can recall using some crazy stuff back in those days. I mean some really crazy stuff.

There was a program called 'Eagle' something or other. I just remember the name 'Eagle'
being in it. It was an FFA mailer thing. Is that right? FFA? Free For All I think we called
it. I kind of liked it and I did get some takers from my offers with that one. Most the FFA
programs were simply junk. Easy way to spam the internet. :lol:

There was a program 'GoingPlatinum' that never really amount to much at all. It had
thousands and thousands of members. I was a forum moderator for them for awhile.
They had some crazy scripts going on with that thing.

I remember using some sort of thing I downloaded that was suppose to be real secretive.
I told everyone about it. :lol: You had to follow the instructions to set it up. After it
was set, you could join traffic exchanges and input them, and it would automatically
surf the pages. I'd let it run all night, wake up the next day with tons of viruses on my
computer.

Some years later, they came out with the SafeList auto send scripts. That was insane.

However, I think things were a lot more fun back then. It was all a big new discovery
with all sorts of weird scripts and stuff.

I am trying to remember my old first downline club from about
20 years ago. I bet ya, you guys might remember it but I can't
even remember the name and I can't even remember my partner
name. We had to do everything manually. I do mean everything.
We had to manually email members the link of what we joined...
and I remember being so sleepy.....emailing people one at a time....
yes, one at a time the link. Maybe there wasn't mass send back
then? I just recall sending people all day, for hours into the night,

something like 'BestDownLineClub' or something with 'Best' in it.

I think you would need to define what a robot is.

What do you think human beings are?

What about all animals, what are they?

God created the heavens and the earth.
What is the heavens?

If evolution exists, where did it start and why isn't all the same?

If it is true that evolution is real, does that mean Robots will evolve?
If Robots will evolve, how and why? And if Robots evolve does that
mean they are creatures of......what? Robots are creatures of creation
or are they creatures of evolution?

By the way, why do little bitty tree frogs wear vibrant red gloves?

My pecan trees yielded several hundred pounds every year.
There were years they did not yield as much as other years but even so, they still yielded a lot.

There is a large variety of pecan trees.

Hickory nuts is a big seller. I do have lots of hickory trees on my property.....the squirrels horde

I don't think everyone here wants to get rich or retire young and I will tell you something.....

There are many many people that retire and continue to work all the way up until they are
dead or not physically able to work any more. Why is that? They're not all working simply
because they need the money. They work because it brings enjoyment to them, purpose
to them, physical longevity, placement in an active society, etc.

So believe it or not, everyone here and everyone else where, is not focusing their life on
getting rich.

I think it takes a very long time for pecan trees to grow. Probably today however, they have
many varieties with some faster growing.

The ones that were in my yard, I truly could not begin to guess how old they are.....I say are
because I guess they're still there. I know the previous owners has lived there many years
and they said the pecan trees were there when they bought that place. My guess would be
those pecan trees were at least 50 years old.

On the good years, I'd get about 500 pounds of pecans from those two trees. I truly did not
bother with them for the money. I love to eat pecans as many people do and they come in
at just the right time of year......late Fall. I had so many of them, box's and box's and box's
that I would sell some to those I worked with at the hospital. They loved them because for
starters, I sold them for less than they could buy them at the store and because they were
fresh.

A fresh pecan taste so much better than the old ones in the store. The fresh ones are juicy
and emit more of a pecan flavor in foods such as pecan pies. You have never ate a pecan
pie until you eat one that is made with fresh pecans.

I use to take vacations regularly to Florida and would go through Georgia.....always bought
the Georgia pecans often from the road side stands.

Back when I sold them to folks I worked with, I'd sell them a big baggie full for $3 or $4.
You wouldn't be able to touch that for less that $20 or $25 today store bought that amount.

There's varieties of pecans such as the paper shell pecan. The paper shell pecan has a thin
shell that is easy to crack.

Would you vote for Donald trump for President? » Post #80

Fri Mar 11, 2016 04:20 in General Talk

To make this clear to those that are reading all this political stuff here lately.....

The reason why Mr Trump is ranking high and winning states is because people can associate
with him He is likable to an an extent. He is fun and funny. He is almost 70 years old so he
has a lot of experience, more so than what perhaps some people realize. He talks in a simple
tone with simple words and people don't need a dictionary in front of them to figure out what
he is saying. He's made a lot of money and people know that in business, some things fail but
over all he has made billions of dollars and created millions of jobs. People know that he knows
economics and when it comes to economics, it's an extremely difficult subject. However, it is
a very important subject if not the most important subject because that is what makes the
world go round. He is self funding and people like that he is. When people run for office such
as the presidency, it cost millions of dollars to do so. Very wealthy people will fund those in
the running....but WHY?.....because they want something and so those in the running often
owe those that are funding their campaign......for an example, a ford bail out. So people
see Mr Trump as self funding and know that he doesn't owe anyone and that he will come
more to doing what he says, then the other candidates.

What's really hilarious is how many people are afraid of Trump and even go so far to call
him dangerous. The president of the USA has what is known as 'advisors'. The advisors
are very experienced professionals within their field. They help to further educate the
president on what is going on in their field of knowledge.

The senate does vote to pass bills and reject bills. It's many of these people that need
to go out with the wash.

If the president does not follow the constitution or the laws of our land, he can be impeached.
It's not like some countries in which they have dictators that cannot be removed.

It is many of the people that presently hold offices in Washington that are afraid of Trump.
Not because Trump is dangerous but because if Trump gets the presidency, they may lose
their jobs. There is a lot of under handedness going on in Washington and since Trump is
self funding, worth billions, he canNOT be bought. It's not just democrats that are afraid
of him......many republicans are too. They're afraid they won't be able to use hard working
tax payers money to fund their big steak dinners and their big ho down parties any more.
Their afraid Trump will see through them and the illegal activities, careless tax payer spending,
and under handed deals they've been making. They're afraid Trump will toss them out of
Washington just like you or I take out the trash.

No one has crystal balls but America has been failing in many ways and it really is a lot
of needlessness, underhandedness, that has set America on this path. We've got to stop
this nonsense, not just for America but for the entire world. Many people across the globe
rely on America to help them in more ways than one. We've got to band together and get
rid of terrorism and continue to stop any and all acts of terroristic banning before it starts.
We've got to feed our children all over the world that is going to bed hungry. The people
in America are a caring people but often the very people we vote into office, get caught up
in their power and greed. Mr Trump has had most everything he could want, all his life.
Many people in America feel that Mr Trump WILL in fact clean house and make America
great again. We're wanting to see our factories back in our own country. We need our
jobs back. If we don't have work, we go down hill and when we go down hill, we can't
help other countries. We're trillions of dollars in debt and we need to reduct that deficit
and get America back on track.

Many people feel that Mr Trump is the best answer we have in the running. We see that
Mrs Clinton is very experienced in politics because she has been in it all her life. However,
we see her as a money grabber and we see her as very dishonest. I say 'we' in regards
to people not for her......because I am not for her. Political parties mean nothing to me
nor to most people in America any more. We truly are not a racist people, it's just that
some are and the bad always stands out more than the good. We don't care what color
the president is. He can have stripes, be polka dot, purple, we don't care. We don't
care if he is democrats, republic, or a moonie. We're tired of the BS and we are willing
to put our ticket on someone that just might be able to turn America in the right direction.
Because thus far, the lawyers being voted into presidency is not cutting the mustard.
Thus far, what's in Washington is too busy taking 8 week vacations, spending tax payers
money on prostitutes and booze, not to mention plane tickets. Mrs Clinton has let us
down. Mrs Clinton is more of what we have been experiencing for 7 years which is
basically the same ole same ole......no jobs, no manufacturing, factories leaving our
country every day, skyrocketing pharmacy drugs, skyrocketing health insurance rates,
and skyrocketing food, clothing etc. I can't fathom why anyone would be for her but
everyone has their own reasons and to vote for her is to continue this same self
destructive path we've been on.

Mr Sanders talks a good talk but I'm afraid he would come to realization once he hits
the presidency seat that life cannot be all cheery for everyone. You can't give everyone
everything for free. Someone has got to pay for it and believe it or not, the rich people
in the world can't carry the entire globe on their backs. I often wonder what kind of
grades he made in Econ 101.

Mr Rubio is a youngster with high hopes but he is barely out of his diaper.

Mr Cruz is very wise and I think he would probably make a very good president. Still,
could he be much of the same ole same ole? Doesn't he sound so much like what
we've had before? I don't know but many people are worth finding out.

Mr Kasich, it doesn't matter because I think he is very soon to be out of the running.
It could be he is the smartest one of the bunch. He even looks like a president.

I think it's a crying shame that we don't have better in the running. Of all the people
in the USA, this is what we have running for president. It's a process of elimination
and this is what we've got. Simply put, people are tired of the same old crap and
Mr Trump just might do what he says and we do hope he will clean house because it
is long since been very dirty in Washington.

My grandfather retired from the city trash department way back about 1969.
My grandmother retired from a major gas company in 1971.
She worked a couple years longer to draw her pension.
He walked behind a trash truck and picked up trash cans, dumping the trash in
the back of the trash compactor truck.....for many years. She was a clean up
woman in a major gas company for many years, working a weird 5pm to 2am
shift. Both worked Mondays thru Fridays only. He was also a minister so they
didn't believe in working on Sundays if they didn't have to. This was in
Chicago land.

They purchased a 300 acre farm, large farm house right before retirement.
My grandfather remodeled the house and they purchased 100 head of cattle.
They also planted lots of fruit trees and veggie gardens. They also purchased
a church building and he preached during his retirement until he got too old
to do so.

He lived to be 91 and she lived to be 86.

He might have went through the 6th grade and she might have gone through
the 8th grade. She said she rode a cow to school when she was a kid and she
loved going to school. The school actually only went to the 6th grade but she
would go back every year anyway.

Both were very intelligent people. Both worked very hard all their lives. They
married and went to Ohio where work was at that time. From there, they went
to Michigan. They raised 6 children and adopted my sister and myself....so in
reality they raised 8 children.

I guess my grandmother was a Rosie the Riveter. She welded during the war.
During their early life, they worked at the steel mills. They went through the
depression era and rations, the whole shebang.

My grandfather loved to read and he most always had a book in his hands.

They were very good people and the type of people that everyone wants to
know.

The pont is, there is a job for everyone and no, you absolutely do not need
a college education to succeed in life or to be happy in life. They were very
happy outgoing people with too many friends to count. They did not spend
frivolously and knew how to handle their money well.

College isn't everything, they'd be the first to tell you that. However, my
grandmother would tell you strongly, to take advantage of every bit of
education you can possibly get and to focus on getting the best job you can.

I don't know about other countries but it is very unfortunate that finance isn't
taught to children from an early age. Sure, they teach math. I am speaking
economics, budgeting, and spending. In my opinion, there is not enough
life sciences taught in school.

There is certainly plenty of people that have never gone to college and probably
just as many that went no further than grade school. These people are not
stupid. Many have gone on to make very good money as truck drivers,
construction workers, and even owning their own small businesses.

The person that makes the money at McDonalds is the small business person
that purchased into the franchise, and management no doubt makes a nice
adequate living too.

By the way, there is nothing wrong with working at McDonalds. What's wrong
is when people can work but make excuses not to and instead choose to live
off the state/government.

I think most people do find it very worthwhile to achieve a 4 year + degree.

I just find it so odd that a lot of focus is on college debt because in reality,
there should be very little of it. There are college grants that do not require
a pay back as they are not a loan. There are also other types of grants and
that varies based on the schools. There is also scholarships for those that
work hard.....both my daughters received scholarships.

There really are a variety of apprenticeships one can get into to earn while
they learn.

Lots of vocational schools to in which people can achieve a specific category
degree within one or two years.

There's also schools online now and with most, you never need to leave your
home. With some you don't even need to buy books because it's all online.

If you are a member of Groupon, they consistently have great deals on various
learning programs, at insanely low prices. They had a bar tender 6 week online
class for $14......normally several hundred. They have at times lots of various
online tech stuff such as learning excel, programming, etc for dirt cheap. I mean
fields of study that cost upward of $1,000 to several thousand dollars, for $99
and less.

@lotoole, I also meant to mention, I owned a home once that had two huge old pecan trees.
I would place heavy plastic down to catch the pecans. Some years the yield was much more
abundant than other years. I would then drive a couple of hours to a town that had a small
company in which they would crack the pecans for people. There was only like 3 machines.
I would sit there for hours and watch the machines crack the pecans. I don't remember what
they charged me to do that but it was very little. I'd take them home and I'd have to separate
the pecans from the broken/cracked shells. I then would place them in baggies. They come in
at almost Christmas time so I would give family and friends pecans for Christmas. I'd also sell
them to nurses, doctors, and other personnel I worked with at the hospital. Everything I made
for the holidays had pecans in them. :lol: Pecans have always been expensive I guess but
they sure are now more expensive than ever. My pecans were fresh from the trees and every
year people would beg me for them. I felt like a Pecan Santa. :mrgreen:
