Guess I have to tidy up.
There is this theory to account for the difference in the observed and expected rotational curves of spiral galaxies without the need for dark matter.
Though dark matter seems to be the favored model today, this is not totally out of the window.
When I read something that makes me think political correctnes is going too far, I watch a few Jimmy Carr clips.
I feel much better afterwards.

ok - comments can be closed I think.
There should be no more to say here.
...you have to work for it, or be prepared to accept mediocrity.
Exactly - and if a society is at a point where you do not even get to mediocrity with a full time job, you need a solution for that.
So - any ideas except minimum wages? Or do you prefer to continue with rants and insults?
But those on that wage level won't have lost anything either.
And I think a minimum wage wouldn't have a major influence on inflation.
One problem today is the loss of jobs due to more and more automation and outsourcing of manual labor.
Naturally this causes a drop of wages in certain professions because of less demand.
My opinion is that a society shouldn't allow wages to drop below a level where you can't make a living by a full time job.
Not because I'm so good at heart but because of all the related problems with poverty and crime that come with those low wages.
So - minimum wages seem to be a good idea to me - but I'm always open for better solutions.
