I agree with your last statement bobby - as a 66 year old who is quite comfortable with most technology (except virtual reality, which I consider largely uninteresting compared to the real world) and who has grown up with it over 50+ years I think it may be beyond my lifetime before 'we' see anything approaching self-driving cars for general consumer use. The 'idea' is probably appealing to those who have little understanding of current technology - certainly it would be nice (for some) to not have to provide any effort in driving rather like the transition (again for some) from manual to automatic transmission but on steroids. (I still actually enjoy 'driving' my manual vehicle).
However i guess we should 'watch this space'!

Somehow the image seems very apposite!

Paul commented on Compound that!

Very important principle!
Need to couple it with a projected future cost of living (current plus inflation) Then determine approximately how much capital needs to be accrued to live off the interest and work back from there to determine investment required.
