I guess there would still be cabs, you just wouldn’t have cab drivers. That’s a scary thought. That’d suck a lot. Although, I hope I’m no longer working as a cab driver by the time the future gets around. It would probably be easier for customers, just put your address in the GPS and it takes you there. Even to Brooklyn! [Yeah, what’s up with you guys not taking me to Brooklyn?
] Oh, fuck you. Nice vest, dickhead.

I’ve heard about the self-driving car but I don’t see how it would work unless everyone had one and they were all working together to not crash into each other. You have one guy driving and that one guy will crash his ass into the robots, I guarantee it. There are still people driving cars from the 50s, so these things would be around for decades.

I’m not worried about robot cars taking my job. People love driving; no one would want to give that up. Electric cars are one thing, but driving isn’t going anywhere. [But wouldn’t it be cheaper to have a fleet of those and not pay drivers?
] I mean, maybe. But those cars are going to be so expensive that I can’t see that happening for a while.

I don’t know about this. How do they drive without a driver? People will always want cabs, and I don’t think computers will get as good as people at making fast decisions for a long, long time. I don’t know about it and I don’t worry.
