The Real Wow Is We Can Do It Now!

Aren't some nuts so optimistic it isn't funny? Or maybe it is rather funny as they think all is sunny. Like a nut I heard yapping the other day about driver-less cars coming our way.

They're ready to go.
They will be the next wave.
Keeping traffic at a steady flow,
No one will go to their grave.

Can play with the kids.
Can send them out alone.
So start taking bids.
And stay near that telephone.

They will change life.
No more driver error.
Can sleep with the wife,
Tinted windows stop any terror.

Isn't that neat?
Sex while driving.
Oh what a treat.
And all are surviving.

Driver-less cars are here.
They just need to change the law.
Then we'll kick them in gear,
And they won't have a flaw.

Old human powered ones will go.
They will become illegal for roads.
Maybe see a few at a car show,
But otherwise they won't carry loads.

The car will do it all.
It will avoid snow and rain.
You can just sit and make a call.
It's like you're on a small train.

So throw out the old.
Bring in the new.
They are pure gold.
You'll probably want two.

No soccer games missed.
No school bus needed.
No needing to follow a list.
Taxi's no longer are deeded.

The car does it all.
The car gets you through.
It will take you to the mall,
Or maybe even Timbuktu.

Pffffft like that is going to happen fast and make human drivers a thing of the past. He claimed the only thing in the way was the law. Hmmm there is one big flaw. People everywhere CAN'T afford a new car. Going to give them away for free near and far? I doubt that one bit. So saying it could happen now makes one full of shit. Plus would you let your kids go off alone in one anywhere? Pffft that would raise my neck hair. Rather deal with the idiot drivers in mass. They won't be working any kinks out on my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  3. This is the problem with research. You keep on anticipating things that never happen. While we are on this topic, I think driverless cars will be too costly for most of us.

    1. Yep, they just keep plugging out crap
      Would be far too costly for the average chap

  4. I've really researched this for my daughter and found out a licensed driver must be in the driver's seat and able to take over if there's a misfunction. What is the sense in that? I don't see how that's going to help anyone.

    1. haha yeah, that is as pointless as can be
      And if the malfunction is bad, screwed are thee

  5. The Real Wow Is We Can Do It Now!
    That it had never happened before
    Thought of the danger
    Bumping into a stranger
    To think the only snag is the law?

    1. Yeah, far more snags
      More than what's in grocery bags

  6. A prime example of 'be careful what you complain about.' I'd rather deal with the traffic jams and rotten drivers too. Driverless cars is such a ridiculous concept to me, and I didnt even think of the kids' concept. You're right, kids would be all over that... def. not a good idea.

    Replies
    1. Yeah, and then they'd try to drive and stuff like that
      And all kinds of debacles will make things go splat
      Some concept as flying cars
      Or living on Mars

  7. That's called riding, not driving. And machines make mistakes as well. They were designed by people after all.

    1. Yep, until machines make machines...
      Yeah, forget skynet screens

  8. It is scary thinking about cars that drive themselves. It will take a long time for all that to happen. What will happen to all the old cars that need a driver.

    Replies
    1. Yeah, be one big dump with those
      Causing more environmental and/or space woes

  9. Driverless car got in an accident here
    Was the fault of the other driver's car
    But the whole concept does not appeal to me
    I would not want to drive far.

    Replies
    1. Yeah, not appealing at all
      As they can surely stall

  10. A smart car is only as smart as the programmer, what happens if a bug smashes on the window?
    If the system crashes odds are you will to.

    Just sayin' I'll leave the driving to me ...

    1. Yep, you'd be in the ditch
      Sure wouldn't go off without a hitch

  11. I'll bet those driverless cars still end up at the Vet place!

    1. They'll still get you there
      Maybe with time to spare

  12. Bad enough we must deal
    With distracted drivers behind the wheel

    1. Can robots get distracted
      If the driver-less ones are enacted?

  13. When it is perfected, it will be good for me at night to go to shows, plays etc. Right now I have trouble with night driving and that curtails events. So we shall see how driverless cars progress

    1. We'll all probably be dead

  14. Actually, I would love to have one, once they get the kinks worked out. Though, I don't see it being in my budget.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah, probably be years before one can afford them, if at all
      So sales will surely stall

  15. Driver less cars. Wow, that doesn't sound safe at all.

    1. Living is preferred by us too
      Here at our zoo

  17. I have severe reservations about driverless cars. It's almost like when people fantasize about flying cars, like in The Jetsons. You just know there'd be tons of mid-air collisions.

    1. Yep, and imagine the landings too
      People would land right on you

  20. A driver-less car will cost big bucks and aren't fool-proof.

    And, kids need a parent, not a push out the door in this crazy time with crazy people.

  24. Ah. If only a car could get me to Timbuktu.

  25. I hate to drive so a driverless car would be divine. However, since I could probably not afford one, I will just stick with toting my own ass around town.
