In other words, the Paleoamericans killed off all the herbivorous North American megafauna except bison and moose, and the only carnivores who survived that holocaust were the ones who could make a living off smaller prey.

I used to dislike video cameras being located everywhere, but they've convicted so many criminals now that I don't want them removed. If people start being tracked everywhere -- which very well might happen -- that will be a different matter.

This man may not have been convicted without video evidence. He was obviously in no danger at the time he pulled the trigger.

Besides that, I think video cameras have been the biggest factor in the crime rate's dropping. People usually behave better when their actions are being recorded.

That Kalashnikov car is pretty ugly. Not sure how much of a challenger it will be to Tesla if it looks like that, unless it is MUCH cheaper.
