Remember kids: always practice safe sects!
"FORTUNE'S FUN FACTS TO KNOW AND TELL: A giant panda bear is really a member of the racoon family."
Which is incorrect and outdated info, as the Giant Panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca), quoth wikipedia: "based molecular studies, suggest the giant panda is a true bear and part of the Ursidae family". Who exactly maintains and vets the source of quotes for accuracy (and/or stupidity)?"
Ferengi Rule of Acquisition #17: "A contract is a contract is a contract... but only between Ferengi."
Wow. What a textbook example of a concern troll.
You sound like every member of the legion of small-minded school administrators, petty bureaucrats, complacent autocrats, and religious dogmatists that have been ever retarding the expansion of knowledge and technological progress, since before there was there was even a way to record human history.
The IRS saw "Tea Party" and "Patriot" in the names and just assumed those groups were political in nature.
"I'm shocked! Shocked! To find that gambling is going on in this casino!"
"European civilization would be a good idea."
From doping and steroids in sports competitions; to bots and hacks in video games, aimbots in FPSs, and teleport hacks in MMORPGs, for instance. If I can't take advantage of the same accounting and off-shore account shell-games "optimizations" that corporate "persons" take advantage of, WHY THE HELL CAN'T I CALL IT CHEATING!?
Dear AC, you need your moral compass re-calibrated as it's badly mis-aligned.
Also, unlike gas, oil, coal, or renewable plants, the total cost of a nuclear power plant cannot be determined until AFTER the plant has been closed, because on top of dealing the spent fuel, the plant itself must be carefully dismantled and interred, which is both costly and labor-intensive.
It's like having a mortgage with a massive balloon payment that must be paid after the house is knocked down (then you still have to keep paying to store the debris, because it's hazardous).
Nuclear is NOT a good energy solution, because of reasons that have nothing to do with the typical hippy "no nukes"-things, NOR is it a reason to stop support for renewable sources.
It's letting a kook make a extraordinary claim ("All the scientists in this scientific field are WRONG, but I'm right!"), without extraordinary proof. Every. Single. Time.
It dosen't matter is the field is: cold-fusion, round-earth-ism, tectonic plates, smoking's link to cancer, evolution, or climate-change, the deniers all use the same play book (and in the case with smoking-causes-cancer and climate-change denialism, a lot of the PLAYERS are the same, q.v. the Heartland Institute)
Occam's razor cuts both ways...
Where electrical implants to stimulate the brain to treat mental-illness were found to have the unintentional beneficial side-effect of stimulating latent psychic powers in patients... which naturally (this being an 80's cyberpunk-with-magic hybrid RPG) led to weaponization.
However, the implants used to artificially stimulate psychic super-powers in psycho-normative people, would over time, create mental instability in users, and as delicious irony, would eventually lead to insanity, hence: "crazies".
