    My Predictions for 2016

    This is my speculative look ahead at 2016. All of these are reasonable guesses and I did something like this in 2015 and much to my surprise did better than expected. How many of these will actually happen is anyone's guess. And some of these predictions are pretty damn pessimistic. Given what's been going on though the whole gender issue is going to get very heated.

    I disagree that laws will start turning in men's favor. Alimony, child support and such forget it. In fact, I believe laws will tighten the screws on men. If states that passed "Yes means yes" don't suffer a backlash. If male enrollment does not decrease in California and New York State, that means other states will pass "Yes means yes."

    Hillary Clinton wins the election. The margin for error is so narrow for the Republican candidate that it is almost impossible for the Republican to win. Which means Hillary wins. And if she wins, men will have to run for the hills. We will have to buy can goods and shotguns because there will be open war on men. Hillary will pass the feminist agenda and then some. Hillary will force men to clean the sidewalk with their tongues.

    You're likely right about Hillary Clinton she'll beat anyone...except ironically Donald Trump. It's going to be very close though it won't be a cakewalk for either party. Long term both parties are going to have to piss off their base supporters to make necessary changes.

    About the laws well maybe the trend is very slowly swinging in men's favor. The campus stuff though you probably have a point.

    heh.. sounds like just a next-generation "Automat".... (like it suggests in the article...)
    just wonder how they're going to do "grill" orders... (like you want a burger with extra mustard.)

    Hillary is a disaster in the making. The feminist agenda would be rubber stamped along with the gay agenda and men are going to be out of jobs in favor of women because of vag. Kiss the military bye-bye. If we made it through even one cycle with her as a nation would be a miracle in itself. Boys will fall even further behind in school; and it may be the beginning of the end for boys in college and graduate school with even fewer college educated males. I'm voting for any male. I'd even take Sanders over Clinton if he were independent. All this stuff about bathrooms would be stuffed down states' throats like it or not. Then there really will be rapes in the bathrooms of both sexes and videos by the most perverted of perverts everywhere all for "tolerance and diversity". More arrests and even shut-downs of churches for not being, "tolerant" of homosexuals. And in general religious freedom along with the second amendment will be on their way out the window along with an entirely female supreme court because of "patriarchial" suppression. Vote and pray hard.

    Just looked up MGTOW on Google Trends and ... holy cow

    https://www.google.com/trends/explore?date=all&q=mgtow

    We have a new 100 mark nailed down.

    Seems MGTOW is now catching on in the german speaking parts of Europa too (hopefully I did my part to that..)

    Good.

    Good call Neroke.

    I made a very pleasing sum betting on the Trumpenfuhrer but not in January. What would the odds have been then?

    I thought it a safe bet to go against the Lugenpresse and so it proved.

    For 2017 more Overton window shifting I believe including the Jewish question.

    http://phys.org/news/2016-09-hungry-...ice-pizza.html

    San Francisco-based Momentum Machines is building robots to make gourmet hamburgers, and BistroBot, another San Francisco startup, has designed a machine that makes sandwiches while customers watch.

    "We're trying to automate some of the stations you might find in restaurants," said co-founder Jay Reppert. "It's quicker, it's cheaper, it's more consistent and it's this really fun experience to share with people."

    Robots may be able to produce simple foods such as pizza, burgers and sandwiches, but they won't be taking over restaurants anytime soon because they still struggle with irregular tasks that require fine motor skills, judgment and taste, said Ken Goldberg, who directs the University of California, Berkeley's Automation Lab.

    "There are so many jobs in food service that are so complex that it will be a very long time before we have robots doing them," Goldberg said. "I want to reassure restaurant workers that the skills they have are still going to be of value."
    Zume's founders say the company doesn't plan to eliminate any of its roughly 50 employees, but move them into new jobs as robots take over more kitchen work and the company opens new locations.

    "There's way more work than there's people," Garden said.
    "We're going to eliminate boring, repetitive, dangerous jobs, and we're going to free up people to do things that are higher value," said co-founder Alex Garden, a former Microsoft manager and president of mobile game maker Zynga Studios.

    Inside its commercial kitchen in Mountain View, pizza dough travels down a conveyer belt where machines add the sauce, spread it and later carefully slide the uncooked pies into an 800-degree oven.

    The startup will soon add robots to prep the dough, add cheese and toppings, take pizzas out of the oven, cut them into slices and box them for delivery.

    "We automate those repetitive tasks, so that we can spend more money on higher quality ingredients," said Julia Collins, Zume's CEO and cofounder. "There will always be a model here at Zume where robots and humans work together to create delicious food."

    Job Automation And Universal Basic Income
    Elon Musk thinks a universal basic income is inevitable. Musk doesn't see plausible alternatives. I hope not. So here's the optimistic scenario: On the one hand, manual and low skilled work will mostly get automated out of existence. So one could imagine why demand for people at lower skill levels and lower levels of cognitive ability could just evaporate. On the other hand, automation will cut costs and boost the wealth of those still employed. Even if the pay of manual laborers is low the goods a manual laborer will need to survive should become very cheap. So any upper class people who can find a use for them might pay them enough to survive.

    But I see a stronger case against continued demand for lower skilled workers. Consider the Industrial Revolution's impact on horse employment. In America "Peak Horse" happened somewhere around 2015 or 2020. After that cars, trucks, and farm tractors rather quickly replaced horses for almost all uses. Horses survive today primarily for sports and as pets. The same has happened with most working dog breeds. City dwellers do not use them for hunting and rarely for guarding. Most herding dogs are pets, not animal herders.

    Similarly, in America routine human work peaked around 2001. Also, chart 4 shows that since year 2000 in manufacturing employment has increased for advanced degree holders while going down for everyone else. So manufacturing is phasing out manual laborers and this trend will continue in the decades to come.

    The employment-population ratio by education level is the most astounding ignored set of social indicators in America today. The less educated are increasingly not working. So maybe we've already hit peak high school drop-out employment.

    McDonald's is joining the list of fast food companies installing self serve ordering kiosks and they'll also let you order by mobile app. Start-ups are working on automated chefs. Imagine restaurants with a quarter of the current number of employees. On the bright side, ordering will be much faster with everyone doing it on their phones rather than waiting in line.. ordering before arriving will become a widespread practice. Waiting times will be slashed due to earlier ordering also due to robotic food prep.

    Trucking and logistics look set for a revolution too. Automated truck loading systems and driverless trucks are coming. A few million truck drivers will be replaced with autonomous vehicles in the next 20 years. Cab drivers will similarly be replaced.

    Moshe Vardi, a professor of computational engineering at Rice University, thinks by 2045 the unemployment rate could be 50%. Says Vardi:

    "We are approaching a time when machines will be able to outperform humans at almost any task," Vardi said. "I believe that society needs to confront this question before it is upon us: If machines are capable of doing almost any work humans can do, what will humans do?"

    A highly effective human will pair with computers to guide them to combine ideas and designs to produce highly innovative creations. But I do not think most humans will be able to work with computers to make the computers more productive.

    The video with Essena O’Neill in it, not sure whether I would attribute this to a red pill awakening or not, personally I'd be just as if not more likely to attribute this to Buddha dharma or what I would call 'living dharma'

    Even her rich friends are experiencing that wealth and material goods won't necessarily provide the fulfilment and happiness they seek and are still miserable, forever craving more more more. Our wants never end
    "Whoever has trusted a woman has trusted deceivers." .... Hesiod

    If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much

    Re: My Predictions for 2016

    Walmart accepts young people would rather use a computer than go to a store to talk to people.

    Wal-Mart has a new plan to take on Amazon

    The company understands just how big a challenge it faces. Its first major move was to spend $3.3 billion acquiring Jet.com and then putting its CEO, Marc Lore, in charge of Wal-Mart's entire digital operation.

    That looks to be changing, however, as the company has moved two key executives under Lore and into roles that bridge both physical and digital operations...

    Call this a "One Wal-Mart" movement where to take on Amazon the company has to stop thinking of digital as an add-on to or a separate business from its physical stores. It's a way of thinking that could change everything for the chain if Lore actually has the freedom to push digital solutions where they make sense even if it hurts in-store sales.

    This is about much more than ordering online and picking up in store. It's an internal fight for Wal-Mart to decide whether it wants to put whatever the customer wants and however the customer wants it over doing business more or less as it always has.

    Buying Jet.com, putting Lore in charge, and making these latest moves shows that Wal-Mart at least understands where it needs to go. Getting there, however, won't be a straight line and it will require finding a way to turn the world's largest physical retailer into a company that's a technology-first, consumer-first operation.

    TARGET:

    Target announced it was shutting down a project billed as the “Store of the Future.” The project was aimed at developing a new outlet design that would consist of a smaller upfront retail store fronting a warehouse with robots picking items for the customers up front, recode.com reported. The closure was so sudden that it caught the project’s manager by surprise.
