Humor Now that I'm done with my internship and ready to take on OSNews again, I figured it'd be nice to start off with something light-hearted. I just read that Google bought an unmanned aerial vehicle equipped with a camera, ready to photograph whatever it flies across. We may consider Google's biggest threat to be privacy, but with all this computing power they have, their Street View cars, and now, unmanned flying drones, they look more and more like SkyNet to me. So, what's your most likely apocalyptic scenario?

Wouldn't it be better to learn from those mistakes NOW before billions die?

Of course. But that is a lot harder than it sounds. Try telling people to just stop using oil. It's not going to happen until we run out of oil.

Here are some of the major mistakes that I think we have made:
- materialism
- consumerism
- using oil and coal
- religious fanaticism
- corporate control over people
- creating a culture that favors stupidity
- politicians listening to lobbyists and not being well informed
- non-democratic government (being fixed already around the world)
