    Why Zep Were Never Truly Recreated

    Glad you like them - they are one of Canada's best bands and have been for years - they have a massive following here and also in Australia

    This shows that we not decades away, but a few years as the speed and technology rate of acceleration creates human like driving:

    3.5 million professional truck drivers in the United States, according to estimates by the American Trucking Association. And according to the government their 300,000 taxi drivers so that is about 4 million just there. Another 1.4 Million of Delivery Truck Drivers and Driver/Sales Workers. So that gets the number of to 5.4 miilion, another 700,000 bus drivers -around 6 million, another 86,000 who drive boats for a living, another 700,000 operate tractors . Gets you into the millions maybe 7 million just in the States alone. I'm sure there is many others - government is not really good at tracking people but we get the point. My guess is that you could double that number for Europe. Most likely another 7 million people in South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, and China. Big changes coming, really big changes

    Here is an interesting discussion from Canada on the subject matter that talks about how many millions of people are about to lose their job - it starts around 31 min and 5 seconds - I know that in Canada for example when Uber first arrived Taxi drivers shut down airports because they didn't like competition from other humans - imagine what would happen when tens of millions of tractor trailer drivers, taxi drivers, bus drivers go into work at some point are told "We don't need you" and it's not because of human competition but because of self driving vehicles - PANIC and ANGER sets in https://toddveinotteshow.podbean.com/e/the-todd-veinotte-show-episode-191-1504739903/

    It's been said before but this is the REAL deal - the world is going to have MASSIVE anger and resentment and government won't know how to deal with it because of these reasons: (1) Millions of Taxi Drivers will find themselves out of work (2) This is from Canada just recently - a lot of people are going to be impacted: https://globalnews.ca/news/4000125/suncor-union-outcry-automation-oilsands-jobs/ (3) Millions of tractor trailer drivers will find themselves out of work (4) 100,000 pizza delivery drivers in 1 company were just told indirectly they won't be needed: http://fortune.com/2017/09/18/pizza-delivery-self-driving-cars/ This is not 50 years away, it's not 25 years away, it's here NOW - and that means in 10 years it WILL be mainstream because insurance companies want fewer accidents and read ledgers only they don't deal in emotion and bean counters for companies will see how to reduce staff and improve profit margins - The great battle between contributors and users will be a guaranteed annual income because society won't allow hundreds of millions of people to suddenly become unemployed because that will lead to chaos and governments will want to keep order

    My only complaint about Sloan is that I generally feel the band needs to to focus much more on delivering background vocals from the 4 members of the band - the BV's is always Chris and Patrick - the 4 of them can sing and Jay and Andrew should be stepping up and delivering BV"s with Chris and Patrick
