I only ever drove to practice and get my license. I have awful spatial awareness, I cannot properly control a car, and when I was driving I was putting peoples lives at some risk. I should not have a license, but I do.

Luckily, I don't need a car, I bike and use public transportation.

This is how I might answer: A safe driver is one who respects the huge responsibility they have over other people's lives. The need for a license should be lower and the bar should be higher. In a more ideal society, anybody who texts while driving or fails to use turn signals should be barred from driving for a year.

Anybody who disagrees with this probably isn't a safe driver, and probably likes Louis CK. I know this may seem extreme, but so is murdering others or yourself through a drivers hubris

but after spending hours exposed to the air, he might as well just buy folgers ;v; it destroys the point of grinding ;v;

still far preferable to three day old coffee though

EDIT: A TLDR of the video:

VPNs are useful for:

  • Appearing to be from a different country to get past content restrictions (piracy!)
  • To get past firewalls/filters (e.g. in China)
  • To stop your ISP or people on your network from seeing and monetizing your DNS queries
  • To hide your public IP address from sites you connect to
  • To protect your data on HTTP / non-SSL sites from your device to the proxy
  • (Not mentioned in the video) for creating a virtual network, useful in some work situations

VPNs don't actually help much with protecting the contents you send over the web (these are usually encrypted), i.e.

  • Bank passwords and data
  • Stopping advertisers from tracking you (there's a lot of stuff other than your IP)
  • Making you anonymous
