Because you can't power a 'smart watch' with a self winding generator. Someone, in one of the innumerable past posts about this topic actually figured out the number of joules (not jewels) that a self winder could produce and figured that it would run a typical smart watch for about a minute. The physics just doesn't work. Same with body heat, solar power and anything short of a radioisotope generator.
But none of these watches have a real time glucose monitor in them, so what is the issue?
The first company that can create a wrist portable, real time glucose monitor wins a whole bunch of money.
To be fair, McDonald's doesn't really count as food.
Seriously? The old self-loathing OMG-I-hate-my-country-because-we're-all-so-fat! trope? What are you, a sophomore in his first PoliSci class?
This isn't a national thing, it's a side-effect caused by an overall rising standard of living within any given culture. The short version: If you're not forced to skip meals and not forced to sweat your ass off just to put food on the table, you're going to have a surfeit of calories, and neither your metabolism or hunger mechanism got the memo.
Now if you're that worried about folks whose physiological evolution hasn't caught up to relative prosperity, then crash the global economy and drive civilization back into the dark ages. Otherwise, dude, grow up already... this is much simpler (and at the same time more complex) than you think.
a whole lot of hooblaa without actually saying in clear are we fucked or not
Murphy was an optimist. Just 'sayin.
OK, work this out. Let's assume that this person:
- has Ebola and is contagious
- is riding her bike along a rural road, somehow shedding virus all over the place (maybe she cut her leg and doesn't realize it)
- then you come along with a full bladder
What in His Noodlieness' name are you doing that puts you at risk?
On second thought, it's probably best not to know.
'A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky animals and you know that.'
What would cause a person to make an insane choice?
"Supernatural" is not a synonym for "magic."
People really did turn into pillars of salt?
People can be perceived to have been. Witnesses see what they see, never the entirety of what happens.
People can actually die for several days and then be reborn?
The raised dead weren't reborn, they woke up from a coma so deep that nobody at the time could tell it from death.
Virgin's [sic] can actually give birth?
It was thought that parthenogenesis was impossible in sharks, too, but a virgin shark gave birth a couple of years ago. BTW, are you a greengrocer?
No human is infallible.
Because nobody can understand something they don't want to understand.
We have not reached "fulfilment", or indeed any kind of end point to the journey.
And who is saying we have, except your burning straw man?
...the Big Bang theory was was proposed by a Catholic Priest.
I hadn't heard that before, can you link a source? I do know that atheists vehemently opposed that theory, because until then the accepted theory was the "solid state universe" that always existed and exists forever, and the big bang theory postulated that it had a beginning and will have an end.
The only magic that exists is David Copperfield trickery, and I say that as a Christian. Miracles aren't magic, they are occurrences with incredibly low probabilities (like several that have happened to me, including my surviving an "unsurvivable" auto wreck).
The bible doesn't contradict science, although many religious people unfortunately do.
