Your last sentence is the answer, I think. "You don't know how to make healthy food that tastes and feels good" - well, it is harder and more time consuming to do it than to nuke another processed meal, but it is possible. Eventually you'll end up making healthy food you like more than the processed stuff.

Also, exercise does not help much with weight loss because it stimulates the appetite, even though exercise in general is good for health...

Not so much for me, I never feel less like eating than after gym sessions. Which is a problem because I typpically have plummeting BGL for the hours following. Grrr. More insulin tweaking.

That's a fun argument. I often travel with a external hard drive in my laptop bag, there's lots of space in it for c4, and is security going to ask me to power it up? Ok, take MBP out, plug it in, plug drive in, it works, and we still haven't proved anything. If there's even a few people have to do this, the queue will grow, flights will get missed, baggage will have to be removed for those missing flights, flights will get delayed. All for something that's never happened? At some point, you have to accept that you're reacting to symptoms rather than causes.

Yupa44 (2027556) writes "The National Security College at the Australian National University has just released a series of papers on ethics and cyber security. The papers consider how the management of cyber security risks involves trade-offs: between security and privacy; individual rights and the good of a society; and types of burdens placed on particular groups in order to protect others. These trade-offs are often ethical trade-offs, involving questions of how we act, what values we should aim to promote, and what means of anticipating and responding to the risks are reasonably—and publicly—justifiable."
