1. Drive to Baltimore
2. Whip out my camera on the doughnut brigade
3. Take my beating
4. Collect $7 million
That's a hell of a bargain. Take 1 beating, then don't have to work for the rest of my life!

It took me 3 attempts to pass that exam and now there are 5 year olds who can pass it?
Hey, buying a recent brain dump and using it to cheat on a cert is a great job skill FYI. There is no way a 5 year old actually passed legitimately, he's just being taught by pops how to win at the corporate game

That's kinda the whole point of online dating. I can think of about 15 different repulsive women I'm more or less compatible with that I could go score tonight.
I'm just not into wiping someone else's ass because they're too big to reach. Am I alone in this? I think not.
Just like online dating is about filtering the other "definite no" stuff traditional dating takes too long to uncover. It takes about 5 seconds to uncover a single momma...pictures. Aha, I see kids! And blocked. Simple. That would waste at least two evenings done the traditional way.
That being said, in effect online dating only seems to work well for women in their 20s and men 50+. 20 something women I know who date online seem to get men you would normally think would be out of their league, because there are literally 50 guys (aged 18-80) lined up for each 1 of them. And then men aged 50+...if you still have a pulse, a stable job, and can still pop a hard on, you're literally in the top 10% in your age group and there are 30 (age 40+) women for each guy like you, especially because every other
You're hoping for some future technology to save us all--a deus ex machina.
Is it incorrect to have hope for the future when it comes to technology? If you told someone from 1959 that in 10 years we would have our human deus ex machina moment all the way to the moon, and then go walk around on it...the response would probably be incredulous. But after so much win happening all around us every day, isn't a bit premature to suggest that we can't collectively come up with a solution by simply giving the science or the market time to cook up something more effective than an edict from above could provide?
"Big Oil" works out pretty well for everyone right now. Eventually we'll be complaining about "Big Algae", I'm certain.
Predicting the weather and predicting the climate are too very different things.
Whoosh. I know you're educated about that specific point, but my point with my flawed comparison is that half-baked logically-flawed ideas will become serious obstacles when you present an idea that suggests you might have to do anything resembling austerity. Like cutting meat out of your diet, for example, which if you suggest it most people will give you a pretty forceful and vehement rejection outright. Facts are out of scope at that point.
