I don't always agree with the things I say. Especially so if what I've said is stupid.

... Is this thing on?

The timeline according to the article:

• May 2016: Anthony Levandowski founded the self-driving truck company "Otto" (although other sources report it was January)

• August 2016: Uber purchased Otto

• December 2016: Levandowski allegedly stole 14,000 files containing plans and technical specifications from Google's self-driving car company "Waymo"

• December 2016: A supplier that specializes in the components for LiDAR accidentally sent an attachment containing schematics of an Uber LiDAR circuit board to Waymo

• January 2017: Allegedly, Levandowski attended meetings with high-level executives at Uber

• January 2017: Levandowski left Waymo

• February 2017: Levandowski founded "Otto Trucking"

    This article is a desert for critical thinking.

Ah, I see you've never met Mr Brooks before.

Snowden's response via Twitter:

    Finally: irrefutable evidence that I never cooperated with Russian intel. No country trades away spies, as the rest would fear they're next.

I hope he stays. Trump needs some advisors who have interests that aren't wholly self-serving. Unfortunately, it seems a very vocal mass of people believe you can only be an advisor to the president if you agree with the president...

Uber's Travis Kalanick had to leave the advisory panel for this reason:

    “Joining the group was not meant to be an endorsement of the president or his agenda but unfortunately it has been misinterpreted to be exactly that,” Mr Kalanick told staff in a memo announcing he was stepping down.


    Mr Kalanick bemoaned what he called a “perception-reality gap”.

    Although he said he didn’t support President Trump’s immigration policy, people thought he did. And that’s what mattered most.

Generally, I believe, states have other law such that make it illegal to go to another state with the intention of doing something that is illegal in your home state.

Well, of course - he's president of the USA now. He's an important person whether we like it or not. You could have said the same about Obama while he was still president.

A friend? Wow. I feel that makes it worse. I can understand lying to strangers for the sake of your job, but I could never do something like that to a friend...

Have you met this psychic friend? Do they seem delusional? Do you think they believe they are psychic?

    It's complicated, because of the placebo effect.

When it comes to psychics (or are you talking about acupuncture?), it isn't so much a placebo effect as it is the psychic making very broad, generalized statements that could be applied to near anyone or any situation.
