    @Pesqueeb, can you send me your new double-walled design?

    So when people voice fears of artificial intelligence, very often, they invoke images of humanoid robots run amok. You know? Terminator? You know, that might be something to consider, but that's a distant threat. Or, we fret about digital surveillance with metaphors from the past. "1984," George Orwell's "1984," it's hitting the bestseller lists again. It's a great book, but it's not the correct dystopia for the 21st century. What we need to fear most is not what artificial intelligence will do to us on its own, but how the people in power will use artificial intelligenceto control us and to manipulate usin novel, sometimes hidden, subtle and unexpected ways.

    210,000 gallons is hardly a downside for the environment.

    As Americans jerk off about going green...
    The 2015 numbers (just Googled carbon footprint by county) say China has twice the carbon footprint the US does. China is about 27% of global emmisioms, then the US at 13%. Granted, the US per-capita is double the Chinese rate.
