Driverless Taxis Waymo Introduced On City Streets PDF Print E-mail


It had to happen sooner or later! With all the hoopla about automatic cars on the roads, soon you’ll be able to hail, hop on and hop off a driverless taxi. It could happen in a city wherever your future travel schedule takes you. As with Uber and Lyft, you’ll call with your smartphone app and go for a ride.

And just maybe, the inventors of the new taxis will add familiar features from traditional taxis to ease your ride. Such as: When you tell the automatic driver your destination, you must speak in a foreign language of taxi driver’s origin, such as Brazilian, Swahili or Mogadishu. Also, from the back seat, you’ll smell the automatic driver’s unwashed odor of sweat, flatulence, garlic, wine, chili or week-old fishcakes.

When you enter the Waymo cab, it will automatically take you on the longest and most expensive round-about route. And if you ride on a busy traffic evening to a downtown restaurant or theater, the pumped-up tab will be double the daytime rate. Finally a question: How much do you tip a non-human driver?

Report: San Francisco Pays Big Salaries To Excrement Experts PDF Print E-mail


There has been lots of negative publicity lately about the homeless situation in popular city tourist areas. One of the most offensive problems is human poop on the sidewalks. So, in your next visits to the City By The Bay, whether walking night or day, always watch your step!

Another bit of news about the dire situation there is that San Francisco has hired clean-up crews to swoop in daily to clean up the poop. And even more shocking, it’s reported that they are paid as much as $185,000 annually to do the dirty deeds! Of course, that info could just be a lot of crap.

 
Would You Two-By-Two Ride The Ark From Holland To Israel? PDF Print E-mail


So far it’s just a thought, but after five years of building an exact replica of the Biblical vessel, plans are to set sail in an actual ocean voyage. Dutch architect Johan Huibers believes Israel is the proper historic destination for the new Ark.

Since Noah’s large family, as well as the all kinds of animal couples, lived aboard the original Ark, there should be plenty cubits available for passengers and other creatures on the new Ark. According to the Bible, after it rained 40 days and 40 nights, the voyage lasted a year. Would you sign up for the new sailing?

If so, consider these questions:
Will you book my cabin next to the smelly elephant cabin?
Will the ship’s pool be open to animal passengers to swim?
On it’s long voyage, will the Ark’s menu include beef and poultry dishes?
Since the Ark doesn’t have sails, will passengers have to row?
When the long voyage is over, how much do I tip the Noah and his crew?
