Nonsense. People love to look at wrecked up shit, myself included. Though whilst on the road my focus is most definitely on keeping the traffic moving. If I really want to see it I'm sure there will be a load of portrait videos shot by gawpers posted to YouTube or passed to a local news website (you know, the one with all the trashy ads).
Do you think people watch things like "Top 10 most epic fails" out of concern for a family member?
It's been going on for centuries...
Re: Hunting season
I'll definitely be checking out that Defcon talk; it starts with "God this talk was fun to make" so hopefully I won't be disappointed.
By the way, "neighbours" is spelt "neighbors" in the title of this talk. You probably just typed it out from memory, so I'll forgive you. I'm British, but generally accepting of American spelling, except perhaps for "Aluminum" - I'm willing to write "sulfur" but y'all had better include that extra i in Aluminium.
No teacher icon as that's for professional Grammar Nazis, though I will think less of anyone who writes "your" when they mean "you're".

Re: So crime doesn't pay!
The statement Davis received a weekly salary from Ulbricht that, over the course of a year, would have fallen between $50,000 and $75,000 is rather ambiguous.
I assumed that he was receiving 50-75k a week rather than per year, otherwise it's a rather underwhelming salary considering the risk involved.
As much as I hate to defend Apple, especially on such a contentious issue, but I can think of a couple of instances where they have predicted changes in computing by removing certain features - e.g. no floppy drive in the iMac, no optical drive in the Macbook. And - I know this is unpopular here - no easily replacable battery in the iPhone. I'll keep my removable storage and 3.5mm jack though, thanks.
Personally, I prefer a proper docking station - which is why I'm clinging on to my 2014 E-series Dell. The new ones use those fiddly USB-C port expander things.
P.S. Not an Apple user. I have a few broken iPhones people have dumped on me, and a Mac Plus. Spent several hours trying to install Mac OS on a regular PC, without success.
Ah yes, just install Linux, that'll solve all their problems! If only they knew!
My understanding of this is that it has very little to do with operating systems, and is more due to poor project management and handling of data.
But hey, Linux is great!
(I believe it is great, but it's not the answer to everything).
A few years ago I bought myself an Xperia Z. I had no idea it was waterproof, until after owning it for just a couple of hours I dropped it in the toilet. I was sure glad I had a waterproof phone then. A couple of years later I lost the same phone in a bog on Dartmoor, and managed to locate it a few hours later.
When waterproofing was a new thing it was also quite a novelty "accidentally" dropping it in water in front of people.
I've probably used the waterproofing feature about as much as the 3.5mm jack socket.
