Yeah, you're so smart because you can code in 16 different languages, and do the same thing in 42 different ways. That's awesome. You're real special.

Except that this level of ever increasing and mostly proprietary complexity is neither efficient or functional. Much less modular, intuitive, particularly interesting, or enlightening.

Some people here say, well, he's just burned-out. Yeah, he's burned-out on the fallacy of being a rat on a wheel that goes nowhere.

We have the most adulterated food supply in the world, contaminated with additives and processed for the specific purpose of being as inexpensive to manufacture, while still retaining as addictive as possible appeal. With nutritional quality as an afterthought

. While 1 in 5 women with children in the US do have kids with multiple fathers, 43% of them WERE married when the first child was born, so the "dysfunctional culture" thing based just on multiple dads isn't as simple as it might seem on the surface.

The absence of the kind of "skin and bones" starvation that people here keep saying would be proof of hunger is absolutely fucking INSANE.

When a kid gets to that point, you're talking a profound likelihood of serious long-term damage and medical issues. That kind of outright, prolonged starvation isn't a fucking goal to shoot for, and that we've been successful in preventing it isn't a bad thing.

The problem in this country is that the relatively cheap foods are foods that make people obese, diabetic, and arguably stupid, because of the flavor-enhancing additives that have been shown, over and over, to negatively impact neurology.

But it's all about big industry here int he good 'ol USA, corporations that yield profits for investors can do no wrong, so long as they keep yielding those profits, to hell with the public health.

But you go right ahead and blame it on poor people and not on the assholes that make their livings off the backs of those poor people. It's the corporate thing to do.

Big mistake.

No taxpayer funding, and what do you end-up with ?

A Continuum-like future, where the corporations fund the police force, call the shots, and the public has no right to transparency at all.

Only there's no chance of someone inventing a time-dilation device to send people back to now from the dystopic future to try and fix where it all went horribly, horribly wrong.

We need to put a stop to the level of secrecy permitted corporate entities which far, far exceeds the ever diminishing privacy that private citizens enjoy(ed).

What we need is to demand all corporate entities, for profit and not for profit, be open to public scrutiny, stop hiding their financial interests, cease and reverse the radical expansion of the military-police state, and start looking at the ridiculous "values" we have as a culture and society which have made this happen in the first place.

These are the fruits of a fear-based, authoritarian, lying, greed-based system of public perception-shaping and miseducation.

Everybody knew it was illegal when it was first implemented.

The massive harm it's done to people is still not going to be addressed.

Nobody has been, or will ever be held accountable for the impact on people, the economy, and the assault on liberty.

It happened here and nobody that had any authority to do anything about it really gave a shit.

And we kept electing the assholes anyway.

Really stupid people are going to waste their money, regardless of what laws you pass to protect them, or what you tell them. They are going to do it. Let them.

Why should I feel pity for such a creature that is too lazy and stupid in this age of having thousands of libraries literally at your fingertips instantly ?

All you asshats that think people need to be protected form such an obvious scam - consider it a public service that money is not being used for some political ends !

This is an awesome amazing golden opportunity to educate people that have self-identified as in the most need of education. If you want to help them, help them.

You're really asking that questions ?

I bet you're one of those assholes that is so clueless that he's distracted while driving that you cause close-calls all the time, and have no idea when and even that you've done so.

Yeah, it's a serious problem, clueless, distracted drivers that think they have some sort of god-given right to do whatever they want on the public roads.

I'm all for vigilante justice for these types of assholes on the road. It's a serious problem that incites rage and causes delays and accidents, and the police are simply not equipped to make a dent in the problem.

Polymer physicists are into chains.
