I wasn't sure what vulnerable meant. Obviously you'd be vulnerable if there was a serious risk of death. But what about permanent brain damage from long Covid - is that serious enough to make you v...

How do you know if you are vulnerable? A friend of mine has long Covid. It's been going on for 6 months now. He is mid thirties and was otherwise healthy. Was he vulnerable?

Ha, now I see why you are confused. You brought up 2040, so I assumed that you knew it was about banning new car sales. 
When I said your fossil fuelled dinosaur will be worth nothing, it's bec...

2040 you say. Of the 21 countries planning to ban fossil-fuelled car sales, only 8 have a date of 2040 or later. UK is 2030. LINK The pressure will also be to advance those dates - just like what the...

Sure, you go ahead and spend thousands on a brand spanking new fossil-fuelled dinosaur. You'd better hope the scrappage schemes are generous.

Battery Day will be the final nail in the coffin for fossil-fuelled vehicles.
Don't buy a new fossil-fuelled car - it'll be worth nothing when you come to sell it in a few years time.

This is what you said: "FRB is not printing money as such. It is limited by the reserves a bank has so it doesnt actually increase the amount of money." That is half wrong. FRB is lim...

Actually, there is a magic money tree. How do you think hyper inflation happens?

I didn't say FRB is limitless. I said it's limited by reserves (savings). You're getting sloppy again.

FRB is not "the re-allocation of existing reserves currently held in a central bank". According to Wikipedia, it's "...the most common form of banking practised by commerc...

In the context of what we are talking about, "printing" money means changing numbers in a database. It is not literally printing dollar bills. I thought that was common knowledge.

This is why we need UBI.

Money is "printed" all the time. Every time someone gets a mortgage, that's new money (money that didn't exist before) injected into the economy. It's called fractional reserve banking. It's how comme...

Scrap all those programs and replace with UBI - a beautifully simple 21st centrury solution that will come about through necessity.

Evicting these people only makes the problem worse and solves nothing. Landlords still miss their mortgage payments. Empty properties have an ongoing cost for security and maintenance which will overb...

Evicting these people makes no sense. Who is going to move in? The propertiies will stay empty and landlords won't be able to make their mortgage payments. Much better for the government to pay the re...

Maybe "doing one thing" isn't the best use of words. Surely self-driving is within the realm of narrow AI - ie. AI that has one purpose, in this case driving.

As a non-engineer, I thought self-driving was narrow AI - ie. AI that was good at doing one thing - in this case, driving.
Autopilot isn't going to play chess, or compose music.

The problem is that at some point we humans will have no say in the development of AI, because AIs will be developing the new AIs.
