End goal: change the constitution. We need a start. It's easy to see how hard this will be and to give up early, but some of us feel the imperative to fight for it. We can change things. The vast will of the masses (corporation political donations are not equivalent to the free speech we enjoy as individuals) needs to be strategically gathered. Critical mass could take decades, as with things like gay marriage.

Spelling nazi aside, where is it that you're from where you use don't use 1 as the statistical unit of measurement for counting votes? I guess you could have 73-72, and divide by 5, but that's still a 1 unit deviation. 1/29 does carry more weight than 1/145, but either way, both are quite close. Although I'm not sure what statistical unit you were using in "14.6-14.4," but compared with "15-14," one vote is the most minimal statistical unit that can be used to express the data. The usage of staggeringly seems appropriate.

Well, I'm not a scientist in this field of study, but I wouldn't be surprised if these helped that process along.

Break ice into smaller pieces (e.g. cut huge swaths of it in half and so on), and it'll melt faster.

Same way you cut a stick of butter into smaller pieces before melting it down when cooking

Also, for the record, I've set this up for clients for self-hosted project space, and I use it for my personal projects as well. It's installation procedure may seem a bit clunky, but it does the job well and is easily extendable. I continue to recommend it, it's excellent software and it's only getting better.
