Since I am based in Europe, I do observe these tendencies with some level fascination. It is just as if the US envies Europe the dark ages of non-enlightenment and wants to go into something similar to compensate.

I don't know that it is envy.

We do have a segment of the population believing that "we can do it better". Whether or not "it" is worth doing at all.

Compared to a computer, a human is utterly incompetent to operate any heavy machinery...

Compared to a cockroach, humans in general are utterly incompetent to breed.

Your point is? You don't have a point. To live is to experience. If you don't want to experience anything...

There are several tutorials on youtube on how to do overtone (also called throat) singing. She doesn't cover it, because probably there's enough of it already.

"Throat singing" involves operating the vocal cords while inhaling. This lady, Anna-Maria Hefele, at least, is NOT doing that.

"I'm sorry, your QUESTION must be in the form of A QUESTION! -- What husbands would say if they only had the guts #31"

My wife simply asks the WRONG question: "Do you want to (whatever chore or other disagreeable thing)". My reply: No, I don't WANT to (whatever), but if you ask me nicely, I will"

I've been saying this for 22 years now. That qualifies me as insane, correct?

A fucking C.

Humans have too many privacy rights as it is.

Who said humans have ANY privacy rights. AfC The only privacy rights humans have are the ones we barely give lip service to.

Groups like ISIS happen because we're more concerned about doing all of our daily tasks in secret rather than being safe.

Groups like ISIS, and Governments in general, happen because of the inate human desire to be able to tell fellow human beings what to do, and how to think, and how to act. And make it stick. AfC

5.- G.O.D.

"Greenbacks On Demand" - I tried to find a good "G" word for this. Better than "Green Stuff" at least. That could have gotten weirdly ugly!

"Gold On Demand" - Good. The way things probably should be. But, in this context (humorous), seems kind of out-of-place.

"Gnote on Demand" - What we probably will end up with, sigh. Fuck lot better than "Inote", IMHO.

Entropy isn't what it used to be.
