Today we have convincing chatbots, people have come forward to the media claiming their A.I. is self aware, computers can create good drawings in minutes, we have self driving cars. Does anyone else have any other examples of impressive ...

I am usually ok on the phone when the conversation has already begun. Is the initial going to phone that I can take months to do. Is overcoming the bit that holds me back from phoning. The decision making part. What I can't usually do and I get others to do for me is those calls where I am met by an...

Since I've been in the UK I've had a few close calls with cars because they seem more zippy, as in they seem to accelerate much faster in a short distance than what im used to.

I can't really tell the difference between a lady being nice and a lady flirting with me, so I have to air on the side of a lady being nice to protect myself from missreading situations, which is why I am single. I also do not get hints, so many times I have later been told "Why didn't you ask ...

But the key is that if their voices are no longer as great as they were, isto have new songs that suit their voices better. That way they can continue and enjoy! The key is to enjoy!
