The Singularity ...again

...yes robots, January 5, 2017

Foxconn, the Taiwanese company that manufactures Apple’s iPhone has announced a three-part plan to fully automate its factories, with hopes to achieve 30% automation by 2020. The move could put as many as a million people out of work, another example of automation's major implications for the global workforce.



Crockpots are truly wonderful devices. When properly deployed they can give the illusion of amazing time compression. With enough water a crockpot can turn lima beans, onions, garlic, salt, and pepper into a very tasty meal base for a week.

My approach is to drink plenty of water before bed time, start the crockpot and during the night whenever nature calls the wondrous aroma prompts me to check the water level of the crockpot.

A fluid paradox that leads to a week's worth of creamy lima beans in what feels like no time.
