California is a fantastic place to live due to the weather (and in my case family/friends).

The costs are pretty insane. I have a degree and make right about poverty level income. My wife and I plan to live here our entire lives due to our family/friend network, but we have emptied our retirement accounts to make that happen. Furthermore, I work hand and hand with County/State employees and can tell you without a doubt that the waste is MONUMENTAL. They throw millions and billions of dollars at absolutely worthless projects, and pay idiots way too much money to oversee those failing projects + pensions.

The state spends money like fucking fools and I absolutely blame Libtards for that problem. Jerry Browns Train to Nowhere, all the taxpayer money that they guise as 'Gas Taxes' 'Registration Taxes' - they just spend this money on whatever they want but its sure not going to fixing the roads or improving any kind of usable infrastructure. It is for sure a systemic problem.. Nope lets just add another 10,000 county jobs that pay $150k per year, I dunno have those people make posters and force businesses to put those posters up.

Seriously, Iowa? :lolsy:

Just the simple fact there's topographical variance, trees, and ocean makes California vastly better - all other variables aside.

Now even a lot of minimum wage jobs are being lost due to automation. A McDonalds in my city has tablets you order on now instead of speaking to a person. Grocery stores half the time don't have checkers or baggers and you scan and bag yourself. Once they really perfect driverless cars a whole lot of other people will be out of a job as well.




I watched a episode of game shakers, she called uber or the fictional version of it, and a driverless car shows up, and she gets in the car and the car floors it and is driving out of control and it has no driver and shes sitting in the back with a out of control car. I bet millions of people will die if people are actually brave enough to try and actually trust a driverless cars.

thats one of the reasons why cops will never switch to these new guns that you have to have a electronic bracelet on before the gun will fire, because the cop wont trust that the gun will work when he needs it too, just like how people shouldnt trust a driverless car. yeah, no, but a driverless car is a death trap, and is just asking for trouble.

I guarantee automated cars will be so much safer than human operated cars that it will eventually become illegal for people to drive cars on public roadways.

Caused by other drivers tho, no?

Quote:

A driverless shuttle bus being tested in Las Vegas was involved in a crash an hour into its first day on the job - although it wasn't the vehicle's fault.

The eight-seater vehicle, started as a pilot of Las Vegas' smart city infrastructure, experienced a minor collision after a delivery lorry reversed into it. While the vehicle stopped when it noticed the lorry reversing, it also failed to avoid it.

Several people were inside the vehicle when it was hit.

The incident is the latest in a series of crashes involving driverless vehicles, the vast majority of which have been caused by the other vehicle's driver.



Quote:

Almost all the incidents recorded by Waymo, Google's autonomous vehicle arm, have been down to human drivers hitting the vehicles, and a major crash involving Uber's driverless cars in March was down to the driver of the other car.

While driverless vehicles are seen as safer than humans, at least in fair conditions, they have also been seen as over-cautious and can move in a robotic fashion, meaning human drivers fail to anticipate their movements.



Quote:

A spokesman for the City of Las Vegas said: "The shuttle did what it was supposed to do, in that it’s sensors registered the truck and the shuttle stopped to avoid the accident.

"Unfortunately the delivery truck did not stop and grazed the front fender of the shuttle. Had the truck had the same sensing equipment that the shuttle has the accident would have been avoided."



https://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/2017/11/09/driverless-car-involved-crash-first-hour-first-day/
crash in the first hour of the first day in operation :lol:

Driverless cars suck because drivers on the road suck
if you have a network of driverless cars that know each other's positions on the road at all times
then the cars can adjust speed and turning simultaneously

human drivers may not be able to read each other's minds
but computerized drivers can :cookiemonster:

koods are u kidding bud car companies cant even make regular human driven cars with out all kinds of major fuck ups and recalls. I mean they've been making cars for like a century or something now and we still have cars being produced that are so fucked up ppl die. the first driverless cars surely have to be death traps.

People only really move from Cali if they cant afford or wanna try something new.

Theres a reason why Cali is so highly populated. Cause it fuckin rocks.

Iowa is has some of the most beautiful places in the country. Minnesota is a post-apocalyptic frozen rust jungle.

California is pretty dope. Theres actually a fucking shit ton of jobs, at least where I'm at. Being unemployed in my area means you don't want to be employed. Any level of experience you have and almost any career, a position is available. Definitely an expensive place, but the well paying jobs tend to balance that out. My place is $1800 a month rent and between me and girlfriend we have never had trouble paying the bills, and neither of us have particularly well-paying careers in proportion to the area.

The people I know here who are struggling heavily and/or homeless are all lazy akira_akuma types who don't work just cuz they don't want to. California gets a bad rap. Almost a shining utopia if you know what you're doing. Most people here just don't lol. Califonia is so poverty stricken because no other state is filled with more lazy, socialist, millennial "artist" types who contribute nothing to society and get fucked. Not out of brutality of the living conditions of the state, but because of their own incompetence.




It is also extremely competitive to get a job in the urban areas, not to mention low-semi skilled jobs pay shit wages.

I would agree because my quality of life is the same as a fellow Californian, but economically speaking, that just simply isn't how it is for a large portion of people. Low wages in highly dense urban areas, middle class jobs are extremely competitive. Good luck affording a house in southern California unless you are upper middle class or higher.
