The great promise of self-driving cars is that they will save innumerable lives by removing the most fallible and unpredictable element from vehicle traffic: the human.
But in San Francisco at least, fickle human behavior is taking a stand.
Thank you for the sudden grace of the falling snow.
Also, if you could take some of the moisture that fell on San Antonio & reroute it to California, that would be great.
And there is the fickle man who is constantly recalling his decisions and deciding all over again; he is obviously the greatest failure and the most unhappy man of the lot.
–Eugene Victor Legaren, Subconscious Power–The Secret of Achievement, 1926
[T]he prince must consider…how to avoid those things which make him hated or contemptible….It makes him contemptible to be considered fickle, frivolous, effeminate, mean-spirited, irresolute, from all of which a prince should guard himself as from a rock.
—Nicolo Machiavelli, The Prince
