    Mercedes-Benz last week unleashed its futuristic autonomous concept car onto the streets of San Francisco, turning a few heads in the process.

    The Mercedes F015 Luxury in Motion vehicle, unveiled at January's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, took a spin around the city on March 4.

    Did you ever think we'd be as close to being able to legally smoke pot while our cars drive us around as we are right now?

    Would have been a dream back in the early 70's when I was smoking a lot.

    I enjoy driving (when the roads aren't crowded).

    We will never see driverless cars in mass.

    The insurance and police lobbys will see to that.

    Oh man if I could just sit in the car and drink cocktails and enjoy the scenery, I would be in heaven.

    I hope one day the taxi business adopts driverless cars, that way you never have to pay a tip again.

    Yeah, I actually enjoy driving.

    Germans are trying to stick it to Tesla.

    But they have yet to overcome bad rain, snow etc. And what about road construction. Lots of things to overcome still. Otherwise the lawyers will have a field day.

    They'll have to take my gas powered manual transmission car from my cold dead hands.
