And that is true for all rich humans. They simply are people who had luck. There is at least a million persons for each rich dude who is as intelligent and as hard working and who isn't rich - because he/she wasn't lucky. The rich needs to come down from their high horses and realize that they are not special. People who admire them should realize that they isn't special.

Why? Because there is no biological reason for a human to live for 120 years. Most women becomes infertile when they are around 40 old. So anything beyond 60 is really unnecessary in a biological sense - then you have had all the children you should have and helped them grown up.
"Why does everyone always think that a libertarian ideal is completely geared around making money?"
Because that is the ONLY way libertarians have demonstrated their ideology ever. Also, freedom in the libertarian sens is only freedom for the rich. The poor will not enjoy freedom in your libertarian dream world. In fact, they will have less freedom than now since they will have exactly NONE influence since there will be no power to control the economic might of the rich.
No, the reason you can't do this to other humans is because that would work extremely bad in a civilization. You simply have to have some rules - like not murdering each other, not selling each other as slaves etc. Or the society would break down.
Lets all hope that they lax building codes bring the houses on their little island crashing down on them.
The big problem with these kind of rich a**holes is that don't want to contribute to society but they want society to help them. Personally I am praying for a pirate attack on this island or something else. Then they will cry for a state to help them. We ordinary people is only a tool for this kind of persons.
Wanting to live to 120 is something we don't want for these kind of people. That gives them more time to use their fellow man. The only fair thing today is that even the super rich dies. If they don't, then we ordinary people will suffer even more under even more dysfunctional 500 year old people with to much money.
Are you sure that is the recent recommendation?
Where I live we got the highest doses of radiation in Western Europe because of the Chernobyl accident and all these recommendation off what not to each now have been lifted.
You are free to eat mushrooms, moose or whatever you like. The levels of radiation is now below recommendation in all foods.
The only difference will apparently be that it will be useless faster.... you will simply use your low quota faster. And I am sure they will lower it even more on 5G because its so new an special....
So we will see 800 Gbps and have quotas of 1Gb/month then....
Where I live the quotas are going down. You have to pay more to get less data now than 2 years ago. 4G means lower quota than 3G.
If this continues we will have tremendous bandwith in 5G but no possibility to use it...
Yes, that is probably the reason behind this. But it isn't only German media maffia - it's the french also.
No, there is two track widths. China uses standard 1435 mm. US uses 1435 mm (or whatever you call that in your strange measurements). Russia uses wider 1524 mm.
Strange. That is why Germany have bought a better version of the Swedish RB-15 robot than Sweden fields.
Obviously doesn't all countries do this.
I strongly disagree.
Germany made numerous mistakes and they all mattered. Many of the was made by Hitler himself. A few examples:
*) The war was started prematurely, before the navy building program was finished - which meant that the German navy couldn't defeat the British navy.
*) Germany underestimated the power of the Royal Airforce and the importance of radar and lost the battle of Britain.
*) Germany grossly underestimated the Red Armys tank supply and infantry strength.
*) Germany grossly overestimated their own tanks quality and underestimated the russian tank quality and got their ass handed by the T-34
*) Germany didn't continue the development of the atomic bomb despite having a head start
*) Germany didn't in time used their early lead in jet fighter development
*) When Germany finally started to produce jet fighters so did Hitler ordered them to be converted to dive bombers - which they was totally useless as
*) Germany wasted precious resources on the costly and ineffective V2 weapon, resources that had been better been used for fighter production
*) Germany didn't produce a working SAM missile until late in the war despite one being developed early. Resources was instead wasted on the V2 project
This is only a few mistakes that Germany made and that all mattered.
But Norway, Sweden and Finland have some of Europes highest prices for gasoline
But we should also count one thing into the price that differs between US and Europe: European gasoline is at least 95 octane while US gasoline is 87 octane.
This is also my objection to this whole enterprise.
If they manage to get perhaps 4-8 persons on Mars - when there is no more money in this who are going to pay for sending more food and oxygen to these persons? Or are they supposed to die there?
No, of course there will be a huge outcry and USA + EU + other western nations will be forced to pay for getting them home.
So thank you for wasting my taxes on a stunt..
