Going to wager that the proposed healthcare measures have some onerous provision that kicks in immediately after the latest possible date of a Trump presidency.

That way it both looks like "they're doing something" but the actual provision coming into effect happens on somebody else's watch, and is thus that person's fault.

Politics, basically.

I got a letter from the government the other day

They knew that people who had no business responding to the poll were going to want to have their say, dammit, so they put in some extra answers just for them.

well yea. idk about the fanfic but that poll is bad. there's like two possibilities for its origin, pretty much.

a: the economist literally do not understand what lgbt means
b: they do understand, but prefer to make jokes based on weird assumptions & perpetuate same

I sort of interpreted it as "I would be comfortable coming out as LGBT at work if I was part of that group." but I don't think I could really make that call as someone who doesn't fit that description.

Communism will help more white people than anyone else. Any equal measures unfairly provide less to minority populations just because there's less of them. Democracy is truly the tyranny of the mob.

Nanomachines that can form into anything you want on command, but are small enough that they disperse into an invisible / semi-visible vapour when not needed. Conjuring physical poo poo out of the air, basically.

Presumably that's a major reason why we don't have them yet. Aside from airborne nanomachines already being ridiculously hard to make.

You either won't be able to afford up your nose bots or can't afford not having sinusbots, depending on the type of dystopia.

That's not an unrealistic projection is it? I stopped keeping track of tech stuff u less I need one a few years ago.

Definitly couldn't get a 20,000mAh backup battery for $20 5 years ago. I don't think they even really existed till a few years ago and now they're sold cheap on Amazon.

Yeah it is. HDD growth is definitely slowing.

We got a quadrupling between 2009 (2 TB) and 2014 (8 TB).

There is talk of 16 TB next year.

A 32 TB drive for $150 is pretty unlikely in 2020, let alone a 200 TB model.

fakeedit: They use “Tb”, though. Note the minuscule lettering. That might just be possible, but I’d bet against it selling for $150.
