#2 because it's easier to create incredibly detailed CGI than to buy guns and shoot stuff? There was one quadcopter video they made for a video game promo done with CGI, but it's just silly to assume something like this isn't real

With new battery technology using using cheap and non-polluting materials like graphine, and other advancements like 3d printing this picture could change dramatically in the next 5-10 years. Should be in interesting time.

+2 14. ProfessionalGeek commented 5 years ago on video Guy rolls his car 7 times and walks away

Exact same thing happened to me a few years back: Hydroplaned, rolled several times, landed upside down and walked away. Nothing like a little brush with mortality to make you think about what really matters in life.

+1 15. ProfessionalGeek commented 5 years ago on video Wealth distribution in US

But consider what this "wealth" is. The graph might lead you to believe that the rich are swimming in vats of money like scrooge mcduck, or that their wealth is a representation of their worth (e.g. they are 380X more important).

However, consider that this "wealth" is mostly what we call control of resources . Bill gates is wealthy, but only because he owns pieces of companies that provide a service and employ people.

These are complex issues to be sure, and our current system may not be ideal. However, it is easy to draw simplistic and inaccurate conclusions from a video like this, which seems to imply that "wealth" is a zero sum game rather than a byproduct of industry and entrepreneurship.

+24 42. ProfessionalGeek commented 7 years ago on video Why work doesn't happen at work.

"You can't ask someone to be really creative in 15 minutes" -So true.

As a programmer, I can really relate to being torn from the "zone" for some unnecessary meeting or distraction, and having a hard time jumping back in later.

Pro tip: Block out sections of your calendar weeks in advance for some real work.

I always thought animals had more of a heads up than that.

If you notice that little nob in the upper left starts moving no more than a second after he takes off...it's like he felt or heard the earliest movement, but not exactly an early warning system.
