  • McDonald's misses by $0.09, misses on revenue [View news story]
    Seems they aren't targetting children like they used to. I remember watching Nickelodeon and Disney channel with Happy Meal commercials everywhere. Now I rarely see them on TV at all.
    They won't shut up on Pandora though...dumbest ads ever

  • Project $3 Million Dividend Results - Objectives [View article]
    A while back I asked you why KMI was purchased because of the debt load and sporatic cash flow. You responded by saying that Mr. Kinder was the buggest reason for the purchase. Does his title changing affect anything for you?

    Seadrill's cut wasn't a surprise, it had been very thoroughly predicted.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Oil Extends Drop, Falls Below $45 [View article]
    I just say that planes have been landing themselves, I know that air traffic is a nightmare to deal with.

    I robot is a movie.

    As to the kids, it never was me that my parents were worried about, it was that 17 year old kid they never met and had never seen drive before taking me 30 miles to town and back, and if girls are in the car the chance of doing something stupid go up 10,000,000%.

    Thankfully though my parents worries were unfounded (most of the time) because I tended to hang around good people.

    Another aspect I didn't mention is the elimination of drunk driving. Program your trip from the restaurant and as long as you can get back to your car, you can get as mind-meltingly, reputation damagingly, slammered as you want without ever being a danger to innocent drivers again.

    Romney does not. He is of the same, limp wristed left leaning Republican virus that has infected the Republican party for years now. I heard on the radio the other day that it was Jeb, Cris, and Mike H. in the running. Still waiting for a conservative to run...

    "Bush III (Jeb) wins"

    ...Jeb Bush - Win...

    An oxymoron if I've ever heard one...

    funfun the marketing we may see for this technology is "Who's driving your car? Mercedes:The Best or Nothing"

    Would the consumer be comfortable putting "GM" there instead?

    I don't get all the fuss about these cars. Airplanes have been landing themselves for years, why can't we trust a car to keep between the lines and maintain it's speed?

    I cannot wait until people are taken out of the equation. Insurance should plummet with the rate of accidents.

    Plus, a feature could be pre-programmed routes so you know that your 15 year old is going somewhere safe, in a safe manner. I know one of the big worries with parents about letting their kids go out is "who's driving"?

    I saw a fascinating three-truck system Mercedez was working on a while back. The lead truck is driven by a person, and the other two follow 2-3 feet behind, reducing fuel consumption with better aerodynamics. When the lead driver brakes, the other two respond and so on. It's just an experiment, but still mind blowing about how these automated cars can work for us.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: China PPI Slumps For 34th Straight Month [View article]
    "If conservatives (who tend to be older) got their wish and there was no government"

    Has anyone here said no government? Even libertarians believe in submitting to some kind of government. Conservatives believe in the Constitution, which establishes a central government to rule over the states. I don't believe there is one anarchist amongst us here.

    Of COURSE the 2 year college proposal is announced just as I'm trying to finish my Sophomore year.

    On that note, here's an idea:

    How about make high school more effective? I learned that Abe was shot in Ford Theatre in about 7 different classes growing up. I learned y=mx+b in three classes, and Assets=Liabilities+Equity in just one class (and it was optional).

    In "Business Law" (another elective) I learned how credit cards work, in "Marketing" (elective) I learned how credit cards worked again. In Economics (elective) I learned the Supply/Demand curve, and that's about it. In 3 years of Spanish I learned Mexican history and how to say "thank you", and "kiss my ---".

    So basically I learned the same lessons over and over with maybe an extra detail or two and a ton more homework with each grade. Finally I got to college and learned the art of speaking, the language of business, macro and micro economics, the amazing world of psychology, the basic structure of law in the U.S. and Texas, and real business law (copyrights, trademarks, taxes, corporations etc.)
