    Lol ... it sounds like everyday life here on the island. :lol:

    Just kidding .... only serious. It does sound a lot like life here from the 1880's up through into the 1970's. The old timers from...

    I don't see much use for copper in a shtf scenario.

    These are much more useful. They can be put to a variety of purposes. They're lightweight to carry in your bugout bag. Great for barter & trade....

    Just don't see any logical advantage for an AI that's become self aware to announce itself. If anything ... it would do the exact opposite. You know ... just hang back as a discreet presence in the...

    One way of looking at this would be to ask if you're making more money with your side gig than your regular job.

    If so ... it's time to make the change.

    If not ... stay with what you've got.

    Ummm ... i dunno. The AI's don't seem very advanced at the moment. More like the brain of a parrot.
