This is a word, when spoken by anyone other than a respected and trustworthy medical professional or scientist, should put your bullshit meter on high alert.

They throw this word around like a catch-all, as if it trumps any argument. Hell, it even *sounds* ominous. It evokes mental imagery of a skull and crossbones and attempts to sway you into someone's camp by suppressing the logical and critical thinking portions of your mind.

What are these supposed toxins? They're toxins, duh! Toxins are dangerous! Are you stupid? You don't want people to think your stupid do you?

Cmon now, it's not nice to swear at people.

Colorblind doesn't mean I can't see colors. There are many different types of colorblindness. Me, I have difficulty distinguishing between certain particular colors and seeing a few. I've become pretty adept with RGB, which is how I identify the subtle differences.

I know I've read about other countries that do this, and it makes a lot of sense: assess speeding fines according to the driver's income.

The information is readily available via the federal tax agency. People of lesser means are not fined up to what can be several months of income (in some places) and it actually has an effect on wealthy offenders. Rich buggers with Ferraris and Lambos will pay tens of thousands, creating a similar effect on funding without the corruption (or, at least, less)

But that's waaaay too sensible for North America. No, we like our good 'old boy, corrupted crony system.
