I've seen several versions of this letter floating around. Frankly, I think it would be interesting to learn more about the people involved and their backgrounds.
No, the figures listed are the average *difference* in loss, not the average loss.
Please don't assume that the diet of an Olympic athlete consuming ~12,000 calories a day has any relevance to what is a generally healthy diet for you.
Mastercard is the network that ties together you, the merchant, and your account provider. I don't think Mastercard have ever offered their own accounts, though Visa used to (I remember UK credit cards that were nothing but the Visa logo).
Wrong. You do own the airspace. In some jurisdictions, you can in theory sue airlines for trespass and win nugatory damages. In others, the law has been specifically changed to allow overflight.

It's obvious you've never actually ridden a bicycle in a busy city. I have to deal with drivers making lethal mistakes every single day I commute on two wheels. Given the number of idiotic drivers yacking on their phones I'd take my chances with half a pound of silicon any day of the week.
My theory is they don't go into STEM because of asshats like you. When they do, they go into fields where asshats like you aren't welcome. For example, my workplace has a firm "no asshats" policy, and, guess what, lots of STEM women.

It's certainly true that a huge amount of repression of women is done by women (especially mothers). I'm sympathetic to arguments that there is a natural component to gender biases, but I really struggle to believe that they cause differences as large as those actually expressed. And we're certainly nowhere near understanding where nature stops and socialisation begins.
