I can't decide who is dumber: the submitter, or the Slashdrone who accepted this story.

"Rich people don't like to go slow."

What? Says who? Since when? And others do? Data to support this claim?

No, instead, the submitter prefers to a) make a faulty and ludicrous assumption; b) pose a question that follows from the faulty premise, backed by flawed logic; c) proceeds to answer own question with wild assumptions. Fuck the submitter, fuck "Soulskill", and fuck Slate.

So... in the past two thousand years, there has been a large amount of large wars between large states. But because there have been none in the last 60 years, a *whopping* three percent of that 2000-year period, we can congratulate ourselves on stopping war, all thanks to nukes? How about if we revisit this argument in another 2000 years? Maybe then I'll buy it.
