#7030184 Driverless Cars

Posted by (M̄) on 15 August 2017 - 04:51 PM

so far the only recorded single incident is from a human driver crashing into the driverless car itself because the former backed up (or something of that sort) when it shouldn't have, sending it colliding with the latter.

I do totally support driverless cars, but this is untrue. Off the top of my head, I can think of an example with the Waymo car swerving when confronted by an unexpected sandbag barrier, hitting a bus in the process.


Google has reported 14 accidents with its driverless cars, the previously mentioned accident being the only one Google admits to being the fault of the driverless car.


There are also an unknown number of accident reports google throws out, on the basis of their simulations showing that the car would have been fine on its own.


Despite the vast majority of accidents being at the fault of other drivers, these incidents are still very relevant, as they indicate that the programs used have not yet reached the point of being completely viable. A computer may be a better driver, but at this time it simply cannot react to potential crashes to the degree a human can.

my eyes basically stop working when I'm tired, but luckily the magic of reading glasses allows me to work on shit when I should have long since been asleep. Also, fuck you hair, stop being so curly.

Would you rather get raunchy in the underpantz with Mitch or Phantom Roxas?


#7030017 3 wishes

Posted by (M̄) on 14 August 2017 - 10:18 PM

1. I wish for General Heinous's first wish to be retroactively negated, with any effect it had on the results of his other wishes removed.

2. I wish to have a reliable, safe, and time-efficient method of travel to any place on this planet that I please, without any sort of prohibitive costs or great inconvenience to others.

3. I wish to have precisely 1 million USD in a high-interest savings account, with a limit of $100k withdrawn within a 365-day period.

It is IMO strictly better than Dark Bribe.
Effects that prevent negation don't work on it and neither do effects that trigger when something is negated, which is an alright exchange there.
Though instead of being a -1 (allowing the opponent to draw) like Dark Bribe does, it soft-refreshes your hand and goddamn does it help Dark Worlds along with other GY friendly strategies.
Now with this, the real question is if surpassing Dark Bribe is problematic or not. 
I do like that it is a Normal Trap, because after seeing how the new Fairy support is coming out, I wouldn't like to see this as one of them.
It is particularly funny when your opponent activates an icon-based Spell/Trap (equips, continuous, field) and the card not only gets rewritten but it also stays there face-up (or in the case of Equips, I think their never having been able to equip to anything would have them behave like Normal Spells and head to the GY).
It is an interesting card to say the least.
Hmmm..... I think it's fine as is after some thought xD

Umm, it only works on Normal S/T

Anyway, though getting to draw and discard is a powerful effect, the reduced number of targets really hurts this card. It can stop stuff like raigeki, terraforming, etc, but many of the powerful cards used to build up boards are continuous/field/pendulum, where this just doesn't work. Seems fair enough to me, powerful but not anything I would want to use very badly.

Because while they were short, at least the other posts had some kind of a point.

He actually has a point. There are a lot of atrocities in the world that just get ignored.

The problem isn't that it triggers from monster effects. It is that it triggers from the opponent's monster effects.

Yes it is. Semi-Banned actually.

Semi-banned? Where are you getting these terms...?

Well, costs go before the semicolon, but magic jammer has no such symbol because it doesn't have any cost.

Think of it this way: costs happen before the chain resolves, effects happen during.

I like mairsil.

Cast mairsil, exile Mirror-Mad Phantasm.

Use the ability, put mairsil in deck and mill your entire library.

Narcomoeba+Fatesticher+Dregscape Zombie into dread return.

Use dread return on goblin dark-dwellers, casting living end.

Bring back purphuros+20 creatures

Or just labman+azami/alchemist's apprentice

We're also not considering any of Z-ARC's support cards, like the Gates and the Darkvrms.

Going "but what if" just makes the thought experiment more and more convoluted and pointless, honestly.


Just as much as the existence of answers doesn't invalidate threats, the existence of protection effects doesn't invalidate answers.


Not to mention that the card, as you are asking about it, doesn't even exist.


You can only go so many layers deep in theory before the discussion is meaningless.

It is also on the list of things that "look really strong but inevitably get beaten by Cross-Dominator"


This list is longer than one would expect.
