You're just trying to obstruct science and medicine. Don't let that fact get in the way of an insightful /. post. Hey guys, don't get distracted, back to talking about 114. Frankly we should be ashamed of letting anyone live that long. Humans are a disease. They should all be killed on sight so our planet doesn't get destroyed by those greedy parasites.

People posed the same question back when Apple let artists publish music directly to iTunes. Last time I checked Apple didn't exactly become the only game in town. Amazon is not not in the publishing biz anymore than Apple is in the music biz. Amazon and Apple just want to sell you cool electronic gadgets.

Americans think "freedom" is the freedom from the responsibility to take care of your parents when they get up in age. The freedom from the responsibility to earn money to put your kids through school. The freedom from the fiscal discipline and planning and hard work required to have a stream of income to support you in retirement.

The list goes on pretty considerably.
