Maybe this'll get me banned, but here's goes nothing.  Now here's the kicker, does that last sentence invite getting banned whereas, had I never said it, then it might have flown under the proverbial radar?  Cause and effect always gets me thinking.

What is on the horizon regarding robotic automation is mindboggling.  Such rates for unskilled labor will only accelerate demand.  Backlash being, anyone without a technology field trade will be competing with millions of undocumented immigrants for menial jobs.  The future for American society will only further its divide.   "Hey Doll Face, yeah, you with the gender studies degree, how about another lap dance?

Been around for a while but waiting for it to go full tilt.  Someone or something is holding back.

I think Fred's junkyard was supposed to be in Watts.
Yes but the PC Watts - South Central
El Segundo was a joke line -

With the refinery on the southside of town and the City of LA sewage treatment plant on the north there is no wonder that they have a web page for: Odor/Air Quality/Environmental Concerns
BTW houses are 1.5 to 2 million on average.

Semi-dirty joke below. Please skip this if you might be offended.
My Dad worked at Hughes Aircraft, which had their main facility in Culver City, as well as other facilities in nearby El Segundo.

The joke he told me when I was about 14:
Bob, who works in the next office to me, told me he took home a great-looking woman last night. 

After an hour of heavy kissing, she said "kiss me where it smells."

So, he drove her to El Segundo.

Great joke.  True that one never knows who might get offended these days.

Prove who you aaaaaare! Or you swim with the white pointers! Well, now I have to explain or be accused of whatever and get mobbed. "White pointer" is an Australian term for Great White shark.

Any Aussies on here feel free to chime in.  Is it that far gone Down Under?  Russell Brand presents it quite well and with good humor.

Cutting to the chase here.  Prove who you aaaaaaare!  Lol!

Richard, thanks for posting.   

This is a sharp guy.  It is so refreshing to watch a young person on YouTube act like an adult, present a litany of facts, and draw logical conclusions.

For anyone who hasn't yet seen it, watch to the very end. 

His conclusions about ICE cars versus what the typical “greenie” thinks is good for the environment are very well presented. 

I'll be sending this along to a few car-hating young adults that I happen to know.
You're welcome, Van.  I like critical thinkers regardless of what side of the aisle they fall on, or their age, though most such thinkers tend toward more one side of the aisle than the other (all reasonable inferences drawn therefrom).

My novella "Faster Than Death" takes place in the future with an "old" 2013 Boss 302 Mustang and my thought parallels his regarding boutique gas stations that will cater to the ICE crowd. 
In a Mad Max situation, I'll take my chances with an ICE car and an AR-13 (mean 15 lol) as opposed to an EV with an expandable solar umbrella, armed with a sling shot.  Oh, and a few cans of Dinki Di dog food.

I'll be waiting for those transatlantic battery powered jets to start dropping out of the sky half way to Europe because they don't have the range.  It will give new meaning to range anxiety.

Seems the moral of the story is never take your eye off of the prize.

That is a great story of persistence. I get motivated when I read stories like this. That car is an important part of your life that traveled along with you while your personal life motored on and waited to be finished. That day eventually arrived.

Good history. Offers insight into how and why things get built.
