The kids filed into class Monday morning. They were all very excited. Their weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a talk on salesmanship. Little Sally led off. "I sold Girl Scout cookies and I made $30" she said proudly, "my sales approach was to appeal to the customer's civil spirit and I credit that approach for my obvious success." 

"Very good", said the teacher.

Little Debbie was next. "I sold magazines" she said, "I made $45 and I explained to everyone that magazines would keep them up on current events." 

"Very good, Debbie", said the teacher.

Eventually, it was Little Johnny's turn. The teacher held her breath. Little Johnny walked to the front of the classroom and dumped a box full of cash on the teacher's desk. "$2,467", he said. "$2,467!" cried the teacher, "What in the world were you selling?" 

Toothbrushes", said Little Johnny. 

"Toothbrushes", echoed the teacher, "How could you possibly sell enough tooth brushes to make that much money?" "I found the busiest corner in town", said Little Johnny, "I set up a Dip & Chip stand and I gave everybody who walked by a free sample."

They all said the same thing, "Hey, this tastes like dog poop!" 

Then I would say, "It is dog poop. Wanna buy a toothbrush? I used the President Obama method of giving you some crap, dressing it up so it looks good, telling you it's free and then making you pay to get the bad taste out of your mouth."

Little Johnny got five stars for his assignment. Bless his heart!!

This is total propaganda BS.   Bezos may try it but with govt money he can waste $100 million because fellow tribe member Yellen will print him more.

Along with Blackstone?

 

If you look at the numbers, Blackstone is well in the hole:

"That means, more than anything, a major pay day for private equity firm Blackstone.

Blackstone bought 81.5% of Hilton in a $26 billion deal back in 2007.

Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/hilton-hotels-to-ipo-2013-12#ixzz2mMi9WbYf" </a>   "If the stock price settles on a midpoint of $19.50 a share, Hilton will be worth $19.2 billion with Blackstone's 76.2% stake valued at $14.6 billion. Blackstone does not plan on selling any of its stake. Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/hilton-hotels-to-ipo-2013-12#ixzz2mMiNTEqk" Buy @$26B , Sell @ $14 B  ain't a gain. Dunno who the dumbfuck who wrote the article is but $19.50 is not the midpoint of $18-20 either. The fact that they are losing less than they would have done had they sold at the bottom hardly seems news to me.

If ones carries the current trend of MMRPGs and technology to a high probability conclusion we could see a future where we emerse ourselves in a 3D simulation that we would consider the real world.... and when the technology advances far enough in that world, they would do the same ... and on and on it goes.

The question is though: Who would be the players and who would be the NPCs? And, could the NPC tell that they are not players or that there is a difference between them and the real players? To make it realistic, one would think not.

And what exactly is "The Word" ... is it the programming code that made the world? Odd how technology immitates life, no?

Say what you want but I think the decision to have children at this point in time, in this proto-Soylent Green, proto-Skynet world is a really bad idea. That is if you care anything about them. Not that it will matter when China and India are popping them out like rabbits and will soon have between them over half the world's population. But, if you want your child competing with kids from an assembly line slave state then go ahead and squeeze one out. If you care about their suffering, humiliation and anguish however, wear a condom.

It is certainly a vile future we have been designing for our offspring, but to not create life when given the ability to do so and do so responsibly is a dereliction of duty. Perhaps high praise instead for those who choose to have children and then follow the ardous path of raising an awake intelligent healthy confident critically thinking child with a high potential to be a positive force in the future. Its a good thing we all dont subscribe to your notion of self absorbed and brazen cowardice disguised as righteous wit.

If somebody criticizes you for the wrong reason or with faulty logic there's no need to be angry with them or strike back because they are acting with false views and with wrong thought. If OTOH someone criticizes you justly and they are in the right and you are in the wrong, there still is no reason to be angry with them because they are helping you to see the error of your ways and you are the wiser for heeding their criticism. You fall into one of these two categories. Guess which it is.

And I have six of them.

Sadly by your logic, your parents should have worn a condom also, and not given you a chance at life, what ever that life may bring. Your argument is much too simplistic and in my opinion misguided and confused. If your answer to the world's problems is to forgo procreation, thinking you've done some soul a favor, you've abandoned all chance of success for future generations. It is of course the path of least friction for you maybe, but to claim yourself a precog into what life your children may or may not have is the height of arrogance and a complete abrogation of preservation of your values into the future, making your negativity self-fulfilling. Peace.

HILARIOUS! I love how the media is working this and the people too. First off, this ain't going to happen. Battery technology isn't there yet, tops you get a 30 minute flight out of one of these things. Second, weather is an issue...if it's raining, no delivery, if the wind is blowing, no delivery, and if it's cold....good luck. Lastly, they are indeed dangerous. The propellers can cause bleeding and if one of the propellers flies off during flight, that will put a hell of a dent in your car.

And the MOST IMPORTANT aspect: All those motors, servos, flight controllers, propellers, nuts, bolts, cameras, etc...are made in China. So at the VERY best...half the Drone fleet will fly (for a while) and the rest will be in the shop being fixed.

Bottom line, it's a publicity stunt. Nothing more. Looks like it's working pretty good too!

Your comment underlines Freddie's above: Just propaganda to get the sheeple thinking nice things about drones instead of as spying and killing machines.

Its Cyber-Monday and Amazon is on front pages around the globe.  Real dumb, right?

Great idea. When is it Yellen's turn to announce the money drop by drone? Gotta get the dough to the people, Yellen!

This will never get off the ground (pun) because 3D printers in every home will make the product faster than delivery time.

These drones could start a new version of the "knock out" game.

Will these drones be bombing wedding parties and schools too?!
