LMAO, you don't know how evolution works, do you? What possible advantage could autism provide, when it renders most afflicted persons unsociable and awkward and therefore highly unlikely to pass on their genes?

LMAO, you don't know how evolution works, do you? What possible advantage could sickle-cell anemia provide, when it renders most afflicted persons breathless and weak and prematurely dead and therefore highly unlikely to pass on their genes? The real story here is probably more complicated than this, but it's a *hell* of a lot more complicated than that.

I, myself, only feed my child what the poorest kids in the world eat. How else will I stay motivated? My child may not have chosen to do this, but wtf, he's only an object in my self-motivational strategy, right? Tomorrow, I plan to shoot at him until all the worlds violence stops as well. I'm only thinking of the children. Well, all except the one I'm in charge of.

Comment: 80% *including* waste heat (Score 2) 379

Great, so if you use the waste heat it throws off, you can get 80% efficiency. How is this different from the efficiency of using a Bunsen burner-heated teakettle to turn a little turbine for power, and claiming the waste heat as usable energy? Plus there's the entertainment value of the whistling sound of the kettle itself ... What are the figures without the waste heat thrown in? RTFA was no help ...
