    So what happens when you put a giant kill switch in the center of your computer controlled car? Video at the link.

    It's like Stimpy and the Button.

    It looks like they took the button from the game show Family Feud.

    But the show was the best with Richard Dawson. Ahhh remember back in the day before everything was so PC.

    In that last one he's kissing one of the cast members of Mamma's Family ;)

    That's Vicki Lawrence between them.

    What percentage of drivers believe they already have a self-driving vehicle?

    The ONLY time I can see a use is for long boring interstate drives. Like I70, I80, or I90 across the plain states. Driving across those I have wished for a self driving car.

    The plains states are probably the last place the'll set up the infrastructure for self driving cars.

    I'll move there to get away from the un-driven scourge of the road.

    I can think of a whole slug of struggling to speak the language folks that'd benefit from having one. That's not profiling, that's just fact...

    No I'm thinking places like Montana, Wyoming... Where there aren't a lot of paved roads to start with.

    I'll need a lift kit for my MINI instead of lowering springs:cornut:
